Blue & White + Weekend Inspiration

Something I have been realizing lately is that time can trick us. Sometimes we think we have a ton of it left, and other days we are scrambling to find more. I have found myself often times trying to fast forward time to get to my "perfect life" and disappointment hits me when I realize "perfect" and "the right time" never actually comes. Life is right now. Not tomorrow, now is the the time to live. Life CAN, in fact, be lived with purpose and joy tucked right in your back pocket and hope leading the way.
I hope that piece of inspiration inspires you as you go throughout weekend, along with this dress I have been loving.
I picked this one up from Old Navy a couple weeks ago and I love it! I paired it with my favorite black wedges (from Target) and a white lace headband.
I think the dress at Old navy is currently sold out but I linked a similar one below!

Hi friends! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the Spring weather! Today I wanted to share an outfit that I have been loving.

I decided to try out the hair scarf trend that I have seen so many of my favorite fashion influencers rocking and I'm obsessed. I picked this one up at Wal-mart under $15.00! (Score)

7 Vacation Essentials For Your Next Beach Trip

I recently just booked a vacation to Destin, Florida coming up in a few weeks and to say that I'm excited is an understatement! It's been a while since I've dipped my toes into the ocean and the stress of this past semester has got me craving some beach therapy. 
Today I wanted to share with you ladies my top 7 essentials to pack for a trip to the beach! These are personal must- haves for me and I hope this will be helpful for you! 

1. Swimsuit & Cover-up

This one is a no-brainer! Buying a new swimsuit is one of my favorite things to shop for before going on vacation. I have been LOVING the one piece trend and I found this super cute one at Target under $50.00. Target has so man cute options and I highly recommend taking a look there before spending big bucks somewhere else! 

2. Sunscreen, Sunscreen & More Sunscreen! 

You will go through more sunscreen on a week long beach vacation than you think! And if you're anything like me, you will burn super easily and spend the rest of the week red nosed if you're not careful. I like to start out with a SPF 30 and work my way down as the week goes on. 

3. A Beach Hat 

This is my first ever "beach hat" and I am in love! I picked this one up at Academy for around $13.00 and I can't wait to wear it! It's perfect for keeping the sun out of your eyes and it's super cute too ;) 

4. Beach Towel 

Locating your towel from the water can sometimes be a hassle (Did someone steal it? Did someone move it without telling me?) So picking one that stands out from the crowd is a must for me. This one is super adorable and i got it at Walmart for (Price) 

5. Sandals 

Affordable sandals that you don't mind taking to the beach? Check, check, check. 

6. Summer Reads 

I think my favorite thing about the beach is getting my nose into a good book. There's just something about being surrounded by the ocean as you read that leaves a feeling like no other! Here's a few of my summer reading picks. 

7.  Beach Bag 

To be able to carry all these beach essentials with you, you will need something to put them in! There are so many cute and affordable beach bag options out there. I recently seen some super adorable ones at walmart under $20.00! 
This one I am using this year is a monogrammed bag my Aunt bought for me last year. It has plenty of room and I am obsessed with the color and scalloped detail! 
Here's a link to the Walmart bag!

I hope these essentials were helpful to ya'll! Be on the lookout for upcoming posts and videos of my trip coming up soon! 
Are you going on a beach vacation this year? If so, what are your go-to essentials? 

Much love! 
xoxo, Kristen Rose

Walmart Haul (Shocked At What I Found!)

Hey ya'll! I haven't been very active on my blog and Instagram lately because life has been crazy hectic! I'm finishing up my final weeks of school before Summer and I can honestly say I will be happy when I'm finished. I enjoy school but there are times when it can be draining - I'm sure my fellow 20 somethings can relate! 
I will be headed down South to Florida in two weeks for a vacation with my boyfriend and my family. I decided to check out Walmart to see what I could find for my trip and I was shocked! They have totally "upped their game" and I'm not mad about it. They started carrying a new brand called "Time and Tru" and the styles are to die for (and insanely cheap). 
Here are a few of my finds! 

 The BEST lashes and bronzer! 

The most adorable two piece set! It is so flattering on and only $16.92! 
Shop here.

These earrings and this hair tie are so trendy right now and I can't wait to style them at the beach! I couldn't find the link but you should be able to find them in the accessories section at your local Walmart.

How cute is this beach towel? They have so many to choose from! I have been obsessed with yellow lately. 

I think what I was the most impressed with were the sandals! The bottoms ones look just like Birkenstocks- I have even had someone compliment them thinking they were Birkenstocks but they were only $15.00 (you can't beat that!) 
I have worn these multiple times and I am starting to see a little bit of wear and tear already but that was to be expected. My new favorite sandals for sure! I actually couldn't find the link to them so check your local Walmart and I will link a similar pair below!

I hope you found this helpful! Has anyone else noticed Walmart's newest cute additions? 

Much love,
Kristen Rose
