I’ve never been one to blindly follow trends, but even I couldn’t help but be smitten with this season’s hottest item: the shacket. To be honest, it definitely wasn’t love at first sight. My style tends to veer towards the feminine and classic, and I initially didn’t think the masculine utilitarian vibes of a shacket would fit well with the rest of my wardrobe. But oh boy was I wrong!
This longline wool-blend shacket from H&M was the one that finally changed my mind. I tried it on a whim, and as soon as I slipped it on and felt it’s warm, cozy embrace – I was SOLD! A popped collar and rolled up sleeves give it a chic look, and I already know I’ll be reaching for this one all season long.
Once I dipped my toe in the water, it wasn’t long until I dived right in with this faux leather shacket from Zara. The belt at the waist is what keeps it looking more feminine and less truck driver.
I’m already plotting to add a few more shackets to my collection, and below are a few of the ones I’ve got my eye on right now. The best part is that most retailers have hopped aboard the bandwagon, so it’s eay to find one at any price point. Let me know your favorite in the comments, and happy shopping.
This post is in paid collaboration with Walmart and Rewardstyle, but all items were hand-chosen by me. Thank you for supporting the brands that help keep this blog running.
It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for a cute summer dress – especially if it has pockets! As soon as I spotted this gorgeous dress while browsing Walmart Fashion, I knew I had to have it. It hits all of my current favorite summer trends, including a ruffled shoulder, smocked detailing, and a ladylike hemline. Also, who could resist this cheery plaid print?! I love it so much, I’m seriously considering ordering this dress as well.
To complete this casual preppy look, I added a straw boater hat, comfy wooden heel sandals, and a straw circle bag that not only looks good but is big enough to hold all of my summer essentials. I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve worn this dress at least once a week since I bought it. I love how it easily takes me from school drop-offs and pickups to a brunch date and an afternoon of shopping in the city. The quality is amazing and has held up great after several washes.
Walmart Fashion has tons of great on-trend summer styles at prices that won’t break the bank. I love browsing the site each week to see what new pieces they have in stock. They have tons of brands to choose from, but my recent favorites are Time and Tru, Free Assembly, and Scoop. I’ve rounded up a few of my top summer dress picks below, and don’t be surprised if you see me twirling on the‘gram in some of these soon!
As soon as I laid eyes on the H&M Wildflower Collection, I knew I had to have it! The pieces are all just so pretty, romantic, and absolutely perfect for summer.
H&M’s print design team set out to create a collection that would help shoppers “reconnect with nature and feel a little bit of calm among the chaos.” Well, their mission was definitely accomplished in my book, and I can’t wait to frolic in the park and lay out in the grass wearing these beautiful pieces this summer.
The pieces are being slowly released on H&M’s US site, but I managed to get my hands on a few pieces at the Columbus Circle location in New York City. Check out my recent Youtube video for a full review, and check back on the H&M site often to make sure you get the pieces you want from H&M’s Wildflower Collection – I have a strong feeling these are going to sell out FAST! If something you like is no longer available for purchase, be sure to sign up for notifications. I do this all the time and usually luck out – hopefully, you will too!
