SHOP NOW!: Cable Knit Sweaters for Under $15!


This sweater season has been one for the books! I love styling a cozy pullover sweater for a movie date night, a day at work, or for weekend errands! A cable knit detail is classic, but a modern take on cable knit is much more fun & stylish. In fact, my look for today, thanks in part to Instagram & Facebook votes, features a new cable knit sweater with past season windowpane pants & tweed buckle flats (see post here).

SHOP: Time & Tru mixed stitch sweater in apple juice, brilliant red, medium grey heather, winter white, & green chili @Walmart (on sale: $14.98, limited availability in sizes XS-2XL).

Here’s how I styled mine:

The texture of these sweaters coordinates well with a variety of textures for bottoms, including houndstooth, Buffalo plaid, polka dots, pinstripes, lace, jacquard, faux leather, or denim.

The latest from Time & Tru that I can’t stop thinking about have got me inspired to pair with relaxed light denim jeans & sneakers for a weekend of errands, beige trousers & ballet flats for a day at work, a pleated midi skirt & high heels for a special occasion, or leggings & slippers for a cozy day around the house.

Inside a Style Blogger’s Closet: Sequins on Sweaters & Velvet on Leggings—These are a Few of My Favorite Things!


Every Sunday night, I try to take an hour or so to outfit prep, as stated in a previous post from September. When one planned outfit didn’t quite work out this week, I had to switch things up in a pinch, so that I could still get myself ready, get my daughter up & ready & arrive at work on time. This was the original planned outfit, but the pants were noticeably too short for a 30-degree winter day on Long Island & I wasn’t about to dig out my boots from another part of the house.

Then, upon changing up the clothing & keeping the accessories, this is what I ended up wearing:

Eventually, I realized that the sweater & leggings are newer pieces that I recently purchased & they’re still available to shop for. I’ll definitely be wearing these pieces (in different ways) throughout the season as the sweater is so versatile in terms of styling & color matching & the leggings can be dressed up or down with a tunic or hoodie & paired with boots, heels, or sneakers.

Time & Tru velvet leggings in rose wine & olive dusk @Walmart ($14.98, available in sizes XS-3XL).

I already have the silver sweater, but I do have my eye on the olive leggings, especially since the velvet stripe down the side adds such a dressy & luxurious touch to any stylish and/or sporty outfit.

SHOP NOW!: Quilted Coats for $20!


Winter is in full swing & every day requires a topper, at least here on Long Island. There’s nothing wrong with a go-to coat that does everything you need it to, but isn’t it fun to try something different? I love the quilted look on outerwear, so this coat, in 7 stylish colors, has me hitting add-to-cart!

SHOP: Time & Tru quilted barn coat @Walmart (on sale: $20.00, limited availability in sizes: S-3XL).

I’m very drawn to the green or berry hues, but a classic black is always a great staple for mixing up your printed & textured cold weather accessories. What an awesome deal for a coat that was already an irresistible price originally at $29.98! How would you style this coat? What color do you like best? Do you like quilted designs?

SHOP NOW!: A Must-Have Gold Sequin Blouse for Any Special Occasion!


Even though my husband & I had a very low key New Year’s Eve, I was thrilled to ring in the new year in style & sparkles! As soon as I saw the blouse below on Instagram, I knew it was the top I’d wear—no matter our midnight plans.

SHOP: Time & Tru sequined top with long sleeves in champagne @Walmart ($20.98, limited availability in sizes: XS-XXXL).

This top can be worn with virtually any kind of bottom, including black faux leather pants, a lace skirt, multicolor jacquard pants, red satin joggers, royal blue tuxedo pants, forest green plaid trousers, hot pink pants, or winter white ankle pants. My only wish is for the top to also be available in rose gold & silver because I’d definitely invest those as well!

SHOP NOW!: Pretty Cable Polo Sweaters for Under $14!


With all the excitement & stress of the holiday season, we must always remember to take care of ourselves. Recovery doesn’t always mean the day after a major celebration, especially when there’s cleaning up, organizing, spending more time with family, doing laundry, etc. However, in thinking about more relaxed & cozy days ahead, I’m all about sweaters—no surprise! I was so pleased to find this one marked down from its original $19.98 price too!

SHOP: Time & Tru cable stitch polo sweater in olive dusk, grey melange, blossom, & papyrus beige @Walmart (on sale: $13.98, available in sizes XS-XXXL).

Not only can this be paired with faux leather leggings & a puffer vest, but it’s also perfect for jeans & ankle boots, as well as plaid trousers & block heels for work. I’m torn between the grey & green, but with such a great price, why choose?

Holiday Gift Style: The Sweater Set of Your Athleisure Dreams!


If there’s one thing that the last two-and-a-half years have taught me about my style, it’s that comfort comes first. This helps ease my mind when it comes to balancing all of life’s responsibilities & not feeling weighed down or too restricted in an outfit. However, if you’re all about comfort & style these days, especially in the midst of the holiday season, check out the latest must-have sweater set by Time & Tru:

SHOP: Time & Tru short sleeve cardigan & wide leg pants set in dark navy stripe, natural tan stripe, black soot, & gray heather @Walmart ($25.98, available in sizes S-XXXL).

Not only can the pieces be broken up & worn with other separates in your wardrobe, but the soft, sweater fabric can be dressed up & down, depending on your plans. This look can work with a button-down shirt & mules for work, a denim jacket & tennis shoes when on the go, or a silk shell & clear heels when hosting a brunch. Although, if keeping it simple is your top priority, then grab your slippers & feel cozy in this sleek set!

SHOP NOW!: An Any Season Textured & Knit Sweater!


I’m a little sweater obsessed this time of year, though I wish it was consistently cool enough to wear one—at least here on Long Island. As I seek out different color combinations, sleeve lengths, & textures, I always have versatility on my mind, especially if a piece can be worn during the fall-to-winter transition & shift then to spring.

SHOP: Time & Tru textured knit pullover sweater with short sleeves in blue sea combo, mocha splash combo, & peach glaze combo @Walmart ($20.98, available is sizes XS-XXXL).

I love the sleeves on this top, which can be worn over a long sleeve turtleneck & with dark denim jeans or even with a pencil skirt & ankle boots. The top offers more possibilities when layered with a button down or matched up with leggings.

SHOP NOW!: A Lacy Sweatshirt for Under $18!


Most of my loungewear pieces are fuss-free. I don’t want to zip, tie, cinch, or button anything on me, so the details are pretty minimal; however, when it comes to adding a feminine embellishment to a top or sweater for cooler days, I’m on board! Of course, the whole point of a sweatshirt is to be cozy & covered up, but the trend of adding ruffles & lace or panels to a sweatshirt makes my heart happy & creates opportunity for a fashionable work from home look too.

SHOP: Time & Tru lace sleeve sweatshirt in black soot & papyrus beige @Walmart ($17.98, available in sizes XS-3XL).

While there’s a wide size range, I’d love to see this top in rich, jewel tones, such as hunter or violet, or bright colors, like red, magenta, & aqua. I’ve ordered it in black, hoping to pair it with velvet leggings & a statement necklace for a stylish luncheon with my gal pals or a casual Friday at work. However, you can never really go wrong with Time & Tru’s selection!

SHOP NOW!: The Coziest Tops for $10!


Each fall, I’m more & more impressed by the affordable & stylish items from Time & Tru @Walmart, especially as each season, they reinvent staple must-haves that prove to be best sellers. This includes a cozy non-sweater top that looks like a sweater.

SHOP: Time & Tru hacci top in teal star, black soot, dark raspberry, green chili / black, winter white, leopard, moonbeam, or papyrus beige @Walmart ($10, available in sizes S-XXXL).

I became a fan of this top during the height of the pandemic, desiring something fashionable enough for a statement necklace during a Zoom meeting, but realistic to wear with leggings when the virtual work day ended. In both real life & through a screen, these tops are sweater-like, but can be paired with trousers & ankle boots or pointe pants & ballet flats, aside from the comfortable leggings or lounge pants for days off with the family.

I’ve added most of these to my cart & can’t wait to assess these latest patterns, always excited to add more leopard & polka dots to my fall wardrobe arsenal. How would you style these tops? Which pattern is your favorite? Would you buy them all for the season?

Show Me the Shoes: Mules for Back-to-School!


One style of shoe that’s growing on me (& the trendiest this past spring-summer) is the mule, which always gave me pause since I like to feel a footwear all around my foot—with the exception of flip-flops. However, as I’m getting ready—mentally & stylishly—for the fall semester, as many teachers & professors are, I have my sights set on fashionable, but comfortable footwear.

The Time & Tru twist mule @Walmart ($16.98, available in sizes 6-11) is the answer, especially in black & blush! The low heel & twisted front present a stylish option to coordinate with any blouse & trousers look for parent-teacher conferences, a midi dress & cardigan for the first day of school, or a pair of dark denim jeans with a button-down.

Also, one thing to keep in mind when viewing the miles online versus in person is the difference in shade for the blush pair, as seen below from my discovery of the shoe in-person:

I did try these on & they were comfortable. I didn’t get far walking in them, but they’re still on my mind. I do wish they were available in navy or olive since those are some of my favorite summer-to-fall transition hues.

What do you think of these mules? Would you wear them to school or the office? How would you style them?

SHOP NOW!: Printed Summer-to-Fall Dresses & Cardigans by Time & Tru!


As we’re headed into mid-August & all the back-to-school merchandise is out in stores, it’s an exciting time to get thinking about fall fashion & how to transition favorite summer pieces into the next season. Particularly, when starting the new school year, having versatile, stylish pieces that are also comfortable–bonus!–makes the getting ready process easier & more exciting.

For example, Walmart‘s Time & Tru brand strikes again with the printed midi dress with flutter sleeves ($19.98) available in sizes XS-XXXL & 4 patterns: green chili, papyrus beige patchwork, sheer salmon, & winter white watercolor ditsy.

Another options includes Time & Tru’s 3/4 sleeve smocked midi dress ($24.98), which is also available in sizes XS-XXXL & 4 patterns: rustic red painted peony, black plaid, papyrus beige patchwork, & peach glaze batik leaves.

Of course, any of these dresses would like darling with a pair of neutral slides, a charm bracelet, & some drop earrings for this summer, but the classic & colorful prints match with some signature fall hues, including burgundy, mustard, olive, navy & brown, which is why the following cardigan suggestions are perfect to match up with these dresses for cooler days.

SHOP: Time & Tru open front duster cardigan in urban khaki ($12.00, available in sizes XS-XXXL & 6 colors), Time & Tru pointelle cardigan with long sleeves in papyrus beige ($10.50, available in sizes XS-XL & 3 colors), Time & Tru tie-front cardigan sweater in green chili ($12.00, available in sizes XS-XXXL & 3 colors, Time & Tru open front cardigan sweater in apple juice ($14.98, available in sizes XS-XXXL & 8 colors), & Time & Tru boyfriend cardigan in black soot ($18.98, available in sizes XS-XXL & 4 colors).

Show Me the Shoes: $8 Sandals Going Fast!


Right now is the best time to shop for summer’s trendiest & most stylish pieces, from tops to dresses & shorts to accessories. It seems like everything is on sale everywhere & fall is just around the retail corner. Additionally, I was in a local Walmart Superstore today with my family when I came across a can’t-miss deal on Time & Tru’s multi-band slide sandal marked down to $8.00 from $14.98!

I tried on a pair, although I didn’t end up buying the great deal. They are comfortable & definitely soft, but I’m, personally, not a fan of slides. However, I’d definitely recommend these to coordinate with a multitude of stylish summer looks, including a tee & pair of shorts, print Ed romper, headed to the beach with a sarong, maxi or midi dress, & button-down with cropped jeans.

SHOP: Time & Tru multi-band slide sandal in white, black, mint, & blush (available in sizes 6-11, $8.00) @Walmart.

I’m a fan of the color variety here, especially when a mint shoe isn’t usually a choice. However, I’d recommend checking your local Walmart stores for the color(s) & size you need since online availability is limited.
