However, this newest Time & Tru find is not only the dress of the summer, but full of styling possibilities for any time of year!

SHOP NOW!: Tank Tops with Bows!

I love a bow detail—no matter if it is on jewelry, shoes, or a dress. However, when I’m looking to put together a casual, but stylish outfit, I don’t always think about bows. It’s easy to throw together a top & shorts or tank & jeans when heading out & about with the kids. Now, it can be an even more fashionable experience with these new must-have summer picks!

SHOP NOW!: Linen Pants for Under $20!

One of the chicest ways to stay both cool & stylish as the temperatures rise is by wearing linen. I’ve always been weary about linen, due to caring for the wrinkles & washing to ensure that it doesn’t shrink, but in recent years, I’ve been a fan of linen shorts with tanks & tees of all varieties. However, I’m in love with these linen pants, which can be dressed up or down & still keep you cool.

SHOP: Time & Tru linen pull-on pants in 2 styles @Walmart ($19.98, available in sizes XS-3XL).

These are true to size. I wish they were available in more color varieties, including black & brighter hues to pair with my favorite spring-summer tops. How would you style these pants?

SHOP NOW!: Roll Cuff Tops for Under $8!

As much as I love a fruit-printed blouse or an embellished cardigan, I can never have enough casual tops to throw on for running weekend errands, which is usually when I’m dressed my most casual. As the warmer months approach, my casual wardrobe demands versatility in matching up with linen bottoms of all hues or cottons shorts in a variety of patterns, which is why I love this top:

SHOP: Time & Tru roll cuff top in 4 style @Walmart (on sale: $7.98, available in sizes XS-XXXL).

I’ve definitely added both striped tops to my cart with plenty of possibilities to pair with shorts, cropped pants, joggers, jeans, & leggings, along with sneakers, slides, & sandals.

SHOP NOW!: Summer’s Most Effortless Casual Dress!

For most outings during the warmer months, I love a matching linen-cotton combo set, but you can never go wrong in a t-shirt dress. Something as foundational & classic as this allows your style to shine with the careful consideration of accessories, such as a denim jacket & sneakers, a statement necklace & woven belt, or feathered earrings & espadrilles.

SHOP: Time & Tru short sleeve tiered knit dress in 10 styles @Walmart ($14.98, available in sizes XS-XXXL).

I love the colorblock options, but the solids in black, olive, & navy are likely going to join other must-haves in my cart! How would you style this dress? Which color is your favorite?

SHOP: Time & Tru pinstripe ruffle top in navy, papaya, green, & pink @Walmart ($14.98, available in sizes XS-XXXL).

SHOP: Time & Tru twist top with short sleeves in black, blue, pink, & stripes @Walmart ($11.98, available in sizes XS-XXXL).

I have the black, which I can’t wait to coordinate with a pleated midi skirt & statement necklace. I do wish this too was available in an olive green, as well as a more royal blue. They’d be staples in my spring wardrobe, but a girl can dream!

SHOP: Time & Tru chambray peplum tank in black & tie dye @Walmart ($15.98, available in sizes XS-XXXS).

While I’m not always a big fan of hanging ties on tops, the ease of this calls more for a fun, threaded earring than any kind of neckwear, especially come those hot summer days. I gave the black & can’t wait to style it up for a casual day in the office or when planning my family’s next road trip!

How would you style this top? Which wash do you prefer? How do you feel about hanging ties? For more stylish posts, check out: windowpane capris, chunky chain flats, & puff-sleeve tops from LOFT! Happy Styling!

SHOP NOW!: Windowpane Capris are a Must-Have!

I’ve really been obsessed with plaids lately, probably because I don’t wear them as much once spring comes around. I do love a mix of plaids with florals or abstract prints when coordinating color schemes. A classic windowpane print, especially in navy, not only presents opportunity for print mixing, but also to play up other fun colors in your wardrobe.

SHOP: Time & Tru pull on capri pants in navy windowpane @Walmart ($18.98, available in sizes 4-20).

These fit so nicely & I can’t wait to wear them with a polka dot top & cardigan outfit, as well as with bright colors, like fuchsia, chartreuse, orange, & lavender. Navy is such a major neutral, & the wearing it in these capris will make for a special look for the work day or weekend.

When getting cozy on chilly nights or preparing for next winter with amazing bargains on heavier items, like sweaters, I love a deal, as well as a multi-purpose item in gorgeous & neutral colors.

SHOP: Time & Tru mixed media crewneck top in berry, heather gray, navy, & white @Walmart (on sale: $11.00, available in sizes XS-3XL).

I never saw these in my local stores, but I’m crazy for this berry hue. Of course, the navy & gray are sleek options for joggers or faux leather leggings. I love the blend of casual with the cable-knit texture, which offers a unique top for any bottom.

Accessories Access: 3 Must-Have Pendant Necklaces!

As always, I’m a sucker for one of each, especially when it’s a classic item that can coordinate with nearly any look. This is Aldi the case when I’m thinking about jewelry—do I get the gold, rose gold, or silver? However, for the right price, why not get all 3?

SHOP: Time & Tru crystal stone delicate pendant necklace in gold-tone, rose gold-tone, & silver-tone @Walmart ($3.88).

These charming, yet stylish pendants are perfect for any button-down, as well as a mandarin collar blouse. The peek of some sparkle is a chic finishing touch—& how could you go wrong with the price?!

SHOP NOW!: Everything is Sherpa!

All fall & winter long, my Instagram feed has been overflowing with different Sherpa items, from shackets to coats to cardigans to slippers. I know I’m a little late to jump on the bandwagon, especially as so much light & fluttery spring fashion is on the horizon, but in looking to update my casual outerwear / topper options, I was pleased to discover this new rollback—& with polka dots!

SHOP: Time & Tru faux Sherpa pullover in winter white, blue lagoon, olive dusk, & brilliant red @Walmart (on sale: $13.00, available in sizes XS-XXXL).

Personally, I can’t decide between the white or the olive, so both have been added to my cart! For $13.00, originally priced at $21.98, how could you go wrong with 2?

Accessories Access: A Classic, Silver Anti-Statement Necklace for Under $6!

For yesterday’s (mild) snow day, I wanted an easy, but chic work look that kept me warm & felt effortless. I knew my knee boots were in order, along with velvet leggings, but I volleyed between sweater & accessories options until I realized that I hadn’t broken out my new silver necklace!

SHOP: Time & Tru Eb brushed necklace in silver @Walmart ($5.88, available in 18 inches).

Once I happily settled on the necklace, I immediately thought of my purple dolman sweater since silver & purple are such a glorious pairing. I love how classic this necklace is, while also being lightweight, adjustable in length, & a no-fuss kind of necklace, which is why I call it my anti-statement necklace. It has just enough shine, but it’s not too much. Not to mention that the price is right! I’d love to also contrast the subtle texture on the necklace with a floral or stripe print, along with cobalt & powder pink tops.

SHOP NOW!: A Peplum Top Just in Time for Spring!

I love a flowy top with feminine details, especially when it comes in multiple colors. I’m gearing up for spring & taking the time to reconsider my warm-weather casual wardrobe & this top just happens to come across my social media feed:

SHOP: Time & Tru peplum top in golden torch, mauve glow, black soot, & blue ash @Walmart ($13.98, available in sizes XS-XXXL).

I’ve purchased all 4 colors & tried them on; however, I’m not sold on them just yet, as they’re living in my “return” tote bag. They seem to look great on everyone on LTK, but I have some hesitations for my XL frame. Maybe I just need to style them up. We’ll see… All & all, Time & Tru is doing s fabulously fashionable job at encouraging this cool-girl spring—& summer—we’re all about to have!

Show Me the Shoes: The Spring-Summer Mules You’ve Been Waiting For!

Once the sun comes out & the all that cold goes away, it’s time to break out some mules! The slide trend isn’t going away as we’re setting our feet free for another season of casual cool style.

SHOP: Time & Tru Rafia mules in black & white, blush, & neutral @Walmart ($17.98, available in sizes 6-11).

I love the simplicity & of these with the braided, textured top. Additionally, they are versatile to wear for work, a weekend brunch with friends, a floral jumpsuit for a day date, or when running errands. My favorite is the black & white pair since it’s a polished contrast to other prints I may wear!

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).

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.

multicolored sequin v-neck sweater in ivory/gold & silver heather grey @LOFT (on sale $49.99, extra 50% off with code: 24HRS, limited availability in sizes XS-L).

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.

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

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:

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!
