Summer Must Haves for the Mama on a Budget

Let’s be real though.. what mom doesn’t love Target, Amazon & Wal-Mart? These are 3 of my favorite stores because any place where I can get diapers, wipes, baby food, coffee, wine, and cute + inexpensive clothes for myself is a win/win in my book!

According to Harpers Bazaar pastels, checks and ruffles are the hot trend for Summer 2018!  I didn’t even realize this until after I put this roundup together of my current favorites for the summer. All of these pieces are very basic, classic and versatile so you can wear with many different things this summer depending on the occasion.

You can purchase all of these items at Amazon, Wal-Mart & Target and as always I have linked all of the items directly below to make your shopping easier! Also, I must currently have a thing for straw handbags and floppy hats because I didn’t notice, until after I pulled all the pieces, that I had multiples… but hey, at least this gives you options of different stores right? 🙂
