End of Summer 2018 Clothing Haul – Ross & Walmart

Friday, September 07, 2018
While I was out casually shopping for some fresh styles the trip quickly turned into an end of summer 2018 clothing haul. I was able to get a fair amount of pieces at $10 or less, for the most part. This haul is great for those going back to school and needing inspiration to revive a closet on life support. In addition, these items will come in handy for those last hot days of summer, all the way into chillier fall weather. I even got pieces that are totally on trend for fall 2018. Without further ado, allow me to show you my finds from Ross and Walmart.

Ross Dress for Less

Scobe white sharkbite hem dress tank top

I am starting my end of summer 2018 clothing haul with perhaps my favorite piece and one that I cannot keep my eyes off of. This white tank top definitely belongs in the dressy category of my closet. I am in love with the sharkbite hem and gold hardware. The top also comes padded. I have not yet decided how I would style it, but I am proud to add it to my closet.

c&e coral dress

I got this coral dress from c&e for around $6, which is an incredible steal when it comes to looking nice! It is light and airy and features long fringe ties that you can wear down or tie up. It can work for so many spring and summer special occasions, and I am sure that I can find something to do with it before the season officially ends.

Prime Cut mauve bralette

As is my typical style I tend to find inexpensive lace bralettes at Ross. This is yet another one to add to my collection, and it is in one of my favorite colors- mauve.

Charmed by Eve floral cold shoulder blouse 

I tend to steer clear of shirts that have hardware as straps because I fear that the metal will turn. The chains on this particular blouse feel to be of good quality. The hues in the floral design are pretty. This shirt will make you look formal quickly and easily.

J for Justify burgundy and white striped button down blouse

I am a fan of striped button down blouses because they give me that professional, lady-boss feel. I am all about pairing them with distressed jeans and booties.

Selena cropped t-shirt

How can you pass up a cheap t-shirt at Ross?! This Selena tee is fun on it's own, or paired with a black and white plaid shirt, which are my plans.

New Mix pineapple leggings 

If you know me then you are aware that I like all things pineapple. These super soft leggings were perfect for my life and tastes.

Jon & Anna Contemporary mustard fringe hem top

Mustard is definitely in for fall 2018, and I can pair this blouse with the pineapple leggings. The fringe hem takes what could be a plain and boring blouse to something eye-catching.

Story On t-shirt dress

Rust is another color that is in for fall 2018. I have been seeing shirts/dresses in this style and I am so happy that I get to pull off the look for less. The shirt portion stops high enough that you cannot wear this piece as a dress. I will pair it with the jeggings at the end of this post. The bottom part of the shirt will stay open to reveal the jeggings.

Crescent & Willough black and white striped blouse 

As much of a fan of black and white stripes as I am, I look for those details that make the piece a bit more unique. I liked that this shirt has a zipper with a silver o-ring and other silver accents. The zipper makes the shirt playful because you control how open or closed it is. The o-ring adds attitude.

Tempted Los Angeles black cold shoulder blouse 

This may not be the easiest blouse to photograph, but it has so many awesome details. Besides the cut-out section in the front with a gold bar, the sleeves are cold-shouldered and ruched. Along the ruching there are tiny, round gold buttons. I plan on pairing this blouse with the dress pants to follow. I am not typically a black-on-black person, but I will make an exception.

Indero black scuba dress pants

These pants drew me in because of the high-quality and comfortable scuba material, plus the gold zipper details matched the above blouse perfectly. You can move the zippers, however there are no pockets.

VIP Jeans distressed acid washed jeans

I have never seen acid wash jeans that look like this before. I like that the darker sections are along the side hems. These jeans are distressed in multiple spots, which is trendy for fall 2018.

Seychelles Maria sandals

I was attracted to these sandals because of the stark contrast between the white straps and black soles. I do not believe that I have seen sandals like these before. They are also highly comfortable, with stretchy straps and a sole that almost feels like it contains memory foam. They will easily go with pieces from this haul.

J for Justify striped zipper blouse 

This blouse has a lot of things going on that make it something different in compairison to my long list of shirts. It has a gold zipper detail, pockets, rolled sleeves, and an elastic section at the waist that pulls you in with a tie detail. I appreciate the mix of blue, black, and white stripes. This top can easily be dressed up or down.

Walmart - No Boundaries

Mustard floral tee

I am really getting into the mustard trend here with this comfortable t-shirt. I like the contrast of the blue flowers against the yellow hue. I will pair this with the jeggings coming up next.

Acid wash jeggings

Blue denim jeggings can be such a closet staple, and I am adoring the mild acid wash details on this particular pair. They fit like true jeggings and can be paired with so many tops.

Olive ruched sleeve tee

Olive is not a color that I tend to buy a lot of, so it is refreshing to incorporate into my style. While this could have easily been a basic shirt, the ruched sleeves give it some character.

Floral mesh top

I think that ruching may be trending based upon the fact that this shirt has some on the sleeves too. The bright tones in the floral design beautifully stand out against the black backdrop. This mesh tee can be dressed up or styled with your favorite jeans.

Floral faux tuck shirt

Faux tuck shirts always make you look put together when you really did not put all that effort in. Burgundy will forever be a stylish hue to sport, and I like the criss-cross section at the top. Throw this on with some jeans and booties and you are ready to hit the door running. Did I mention the material is soft and stretchy?!

Faith crossbodies

The final items in my end of summer 2018 clothing haul are two crossbodies. Crossbodies are totally coming back in a big way this fall, including transparent or clear bags. I picked two bags in the "Faith" style because I liked the pocket on the front and small studs down the sides. They are the right size to hold my belongings.
