Home for the Holidays with Walmart

This year, home for the holidays has a whole new meaning. For my family, it means slowing down, unwinding and staying home while dressing up in cozy and comfy clothes. It’s all about snuggling up in warm trendy layers and soft loungewear.

We are all still adjusting to the state of the world and our new “normal”. We started off this fall season with back to school fashion looking different from previous years. It was all about comfortable clothes for at home schooling or reusable masks for those who attended class in person. Here we are, almost six months later and my kids are still at home wearing their comfy lounge sets. Some days it seems harder than others to adjust to our new way of life but luckily, we have Walmart adjusting with us, helping us through the process!

During the past few years, Walmart has been one of my main go-to stores for the latest fashion finds as they offer an amazing selection of fashion forward trends for everyone in the family. Whether you are an at home “teacher”, taking Zoom calls from your living room or going in to the office, Walmart Fashion has you covered from head to toe.

Back in March during quarantine, I heavily depended on ordering just about everything from Walmart. There is nothing easier that searching and ordering the latest fashion trends with the simple click of a button on your phone or computer. They also have incredibly fast shipping (free 2-day) and a great return policy so there is no downside to ordering different items in various sizes to try on at home.

I just purchased some much needed cold weather essentials because believe it or not, it gets COLD in California. I ordered this fabulous leopard print puffer coat by Sofia Vergara; it’s warm, chic and the quality is on point! I also ordered a few pairs of jeans and sweaters from Scoop that did not disappoint. The color options are endless and I guarantee you will find that perfect cozy sweater you will wear all winter long. Looking for that perfect jacket that won’t break the bank? Look no further! I also found this chic long plaid wool-blend coat that is the perfect transition piece. You know what else has been a huge hit since last season? The faux fur vest! I finally ordered one this season and am loving the light leopard print. If you aren’t in the market for a vest but still want the faux fur look, no worries, Walmart Fashion also has it available in a jacket that is super cute!

Since the beginning of quarantine, I have been into finding super cute lounge sets that can be worn to run errands or relax around the house. I just found this tie dye set and am completely obsessed! It comes in numerous colors and is beyond soft, comfort has never looked so good! I paired mine with a pair of Muk Luks and I guarantee this will be my go-to snuggle up set of the season.

Whether you are looking to buy cold weather clothes that will keep you warm in style, cozy sets for cold winter days, basic essentials, chic boots or gifts for your loved ones, Walmart Fashion has you covered! Check out some of my favorite finds below:


Black Friday 2020

Woohoo let the sales begin! It has been one heck of a year to say the least! The good news about this Black Friday is that most retailers are expecting you to stay home and shop from the safety of your own home. Rather than having to search the world wide web for the best deals, I have narrowed them down for you! By now, you are probably just a few sips into your morning coffee, still wearing your cozy jammies. I also bet you are ready to SHOP, SHOP, SHOP! Check out my AMAZON LIVE pages for all of todays amazing deals!


Falling Leaves

Plaid plus leather plus foliage equals fall perfection. It’s an easy outfit recipe for anyone transitioning into the cooler months. A faux leather jogger makes it easy to transition out of your sweatpants and into the real world! Put on a basic white tee, a plaid blazer and you will be styled to perfection. Wear the top half with jeans, wear the bottom half with a jean jacket; get 2 looks out of one, the opportunities are endless!

Lucky in Lilacs

A few weeks ago when I was in NYC working (and shopping), I came across this beautiful restaurant in SOHO. How cute is this lilac wall with green accents?!? LOVE! As I walked by, I noticed they were holding a socially distanced wedding in the courtyard. OMG, it was just beautiful! I had to take a photo in front of the flower wall and of course, show you my fall outfit! It is on trend, affordable and jean jacket worthy! This wall makes me feel like it’s almost spring! (Wishful thinking).


Wood Tones

Warm wood tones scream fall to me; caramel, burnt orange, yellows and creams. These are all hues that can easily be mixed and matched. As I get older, I tend to buy things in colors that can be worn together. I try to stick to flattering/neutral colors that are easy to mix and match with what I already own in my closet.
