Affordable summer vacation finds + a peek at our trip to Maui

Walmart is quickly becoming one of our go-to shopping destinations when we need to stock up on super cute basics at super great prices. Their We Dress America campaign continues to surprise me with the insane variety and quality of clothes.

Neil and I went to Maui recently and I went to Walmart before our trip to get all the things for our summer beach vacation. I'm super THRILLED to share my affordable finds with you (and a little sneak peek of our trip)!!

Polka Dot Jumpsuit

This lightweight, flutter sleeve jumpsuit was so, so perfect for the Hawaii! It was a super great find and I was so happy that I packed it for this trip. I wore it out to dinner one night and was obsessed! It was really cute and flattering, but roomy enough that felt like I could eat whatever I wanted and not feel restricted by my outfit! The jumpsuit comes in three other colors/patterns and it rings in UNDER $20!

Funny story. I meant to pack the Sam Edelman sandals from this post to wear with this jumpsuit. I got to Hawaii and discovered I had somehow only packed ONE sandal! How does that even happen?! Whoops!

I DID remember to pack the same amazing straw bag for this trip that I wore in this outfit that you guys all went nuts over earlier this summer!! I used it more than any other bag on our Hawaii trip.

Black One Piece

I fell in love with this classic black one piece back in the spring and love is STILL in the air! The PRICE on this swimmer was the #1 selling point for me! I have worn this flattering halter neck suit SO much this summer! When I purchased it in March, I was really afraid it was going to fade, but it's been a total champ all summer long and hasn't faded AT ALL! This swimsuit is currently out of stock, but this is a great similar option!

Lounge Shorts

These $18 Levi Lounge Shorts were 100% my vacay jam! I added them to my cart because of the crazy good reviews and they totally exceeded my expectations! They have an elastic waistband and they are super stretchy making them the ideal short for our Road to Hana drive and eating all the shaved ice. I'm obsessed with the fact that they look like denim and feel like sweats. That's a heavenly combo right there!

Basic White Tank for summer

A plain white tank is kind of a vacation and summer staple and this one is INSANELY soft. Like crazy, crazy soft. It even says super soft right on the tag! This high neck tank comes in a bunch of different colors and paired with the shorts made just a really easy, basic beach outfit. The exact tank top I wore is unavailable in white, but this is a similar option!

Peasant Dress

Can you even handle this dress? Or that sunset?! This peasant dress is UNDER $30 and really cute! It was a great find that I wore on our last night out to a nice dinner at a beachfront restaurant. I love the fit and the length and all the pretty embroidery. It comes in two other cute colors and I might need to snag both while they're still in stock! Such a cute find for summer and even for fall!

Strappy Sandals

These Circus by Sam Edelman strappy sandals are an AMAZING dupe for a much more expensive almost identical sandal you've seen on the blog for YEARS! At $60 these sandals were already SUPER affordable, but Walmart just rolled back the price and now they're $22! Add all three colors to your cart ASAP!
