This and That

How is everyone? It's been super busy here while we get ready to attend SXSW. We're over the moon excited, to say the least. :)  

Speaking of SXSW, I was perusing my closet the other day trying to decide what to wear to the premiere of my son's movie, as well as what else to pack for our fun days in Austin.

And surprise...I came to the conclusion that I needed a few new things. I wanted a few hippie-inspired shirts (or do you call them blouses?) I had no idea if I could find what I was picturing in my mind, so in true Lisa fashion (see what I did there? "Fashion" lol!) I made Walmart my first stop. I know, I're thinking Walmart??? Yep. Remember my friends at Whoa Wait Walmart? They're always telling us about the fun, cute clothing they carry and of course it's very affordable.

I found exactly what I was looking for...

P.S. Those Joy Mangano huggable hangers are on sale right now at Target. I stocked up yesterday. Your clothes won't ever slip off and since I don't put hardly anything in the dryer, I even use them to hang up my shirts to dry with no problem. 

Don't they look a bit hippy-ish with the patterns, tie dye, and little tassel things? No? Maybe? Well I'm choosing to call them "just hippie enough for me." Ha!

What I love (besides the price of $14.46) is that they're a little longer in the back which makes them perfect for wearing with my Old Navy Pixie Pants or leggings. They cover just enough of your bum so you don't feel like you're putting on a show, if you know what I mean. Lol!

Here's a closer look at the neck line with the tassels...

Next up, I found these cute striped numbers...

They're a little plain, but that's okay in my book. And they're very comfy, which is always a good thing. Oh, and with the longer back, they're also great for wearing with leggings/Pixies.

Would you believe these were on clearance for $7? What a deal! At first, I only put two in my cart, but then I had a talk with myself and "we" decided I should definitely go back and get the other two colors they came in. I knew I would regret it if I didn't and then I'd just be making yet another trip to Walmart in the near future AND I would be stressed the whole ride there worried that they would be gone. Isn't it fun to get inside my head like that? Hee hee! 

Now I will say that they are VERY thin, which is why I personally bought them. It's so hot here, but since they're so thin, I can wear them year round. I'll definitely have to wear my favorite cami with them, which is fine with me. If you missed my post on my favorite cami, you can click HERE. I love these camisoles. I had a hard time finding something that wasn't clingy or made of microfiber or Spanx-like. I just wanted an old school camisole that was loose fitting, AND was comfy AND didn't have a lot of embellishments. Oh, AND that was cheap. :) I found it all with these and they're only about $8. Oh, and that same link above also has info on my favorite Old Navy Pixie pants I talk about all the time on Instagram. 

The pic below shows just how thin they are, just so you know...

I was holding it up in front of a window, just for y'all. :)

Another thing I needed was a new pair of Vans. I LOVE Vans! I prefer the classic slip on and have worn them for years. Just when I was thinking of ordering another pair from Zappos, I got an email from them offering me a discount. I'm totally not the morning I was going to order them, I got an email from Zappos offering me a $30 coupon just for signing up for their Zappos rewards program, which is free. This was definitely a sign that I needed these shoes...

The classic canvas slip on.

So instead of $50, they only cost me $20! Zappos always offers free shipping and free return shipping. Such a nice perk!

One more thing...when I was at Walmart buying my new shirts, I browsed the Easter aisle and came across these cute initial basket charms for your Easter baskets...

They're kind of like the monograms you can purchase to hang on Christmas stockings, only these would work for Easter with the cute plaid design.

They also had these cute tulle skirts for your Easter basket...

Oh my goodness...aren't they darling? I just had to share. 

I might be a little absent from the blog scene during the next week or so while we're traveling to SXSW, but I'm sure I'll share pics on Instagram. 

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Good for you for finding the perfect tops for the perfect price(ing). I love those 'hippie' tops. I think they call them Boho now--but a rose by any other name is still a rose--or some such nonsense.

    I have never tried Van's but I need a good pair of slip-on comfy shoes. I will have to see if I can find them at DWS here so I know they fit properly. Hope you have a great time at your son's "showing". xo Diana

  2. Lisa, You are young and could wear a sack and look good. I do love those tops. I like plain because I wear scarves . I have a ton of Joy's hangers. Love the sneakers. I just bought some Skechers myself. They are like slip on sneakers. I like the longer tails on shirts. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  3. You are the ace shopper!! I'm going to WalMart to find those tops. We have a brand new store and I've been enjoying it.
