Try-On Haul: Loft, Walmart, Old Navy & Talbots

Today I am sharing a few pieces from my online shopping sprees for the past few weeks. I have been on the hunt for longer shorts, dresses, and a few blouses that I can wear casually or on a date with the hubs. As I was writing this post together, I had not noticed how much I am drawn to neutrals. I do love neutrals, and this post is full of casual chic neutrals for day or night. Since I have been preoccupied with the renovations for the past few weeks, this week’s post may have a few more outfits than a normal week.

This on or off-the-shoulder paisley blouse is so flattering! I love the length of the sleeves and the ability to tuck it in or leave it out as a flowy top. This fits TTS, I am wearing a medium for reference. This blouse is from Cato Fashions and is under $20. See it here. I decided to style it with khaki 7-inch shorts from Old Navy. These are mid-rise and have some stretch in them for comfort. These shorts come in m multiple colors, but the khaki is getting low, so grab yours here. These shorts fit tts.

I’m going to talk about these knit white cropped jeans first…cause I am OBSESSED! These fit tts and have lots of stretch, in fact, you can bend and squat easily in these without feeling constricted. These were a splurge for me, but I didn’t mind because all of my Express jeans have held up wonderfully for years. These come in a variety of lengths and I am wearing the average length. See the jean here. This paisley blouse is from Cato and I totally recommend trying it out. I have worn this blouse multiple times with shorts and cropped denim and wedges. It’s a top that can be worn from day to night to the weekend easily. See the blouse here.

Outfit Details: // Blouse // Express White Knit Cropped Jeans // Link Necklace // Bracelet // Sandals (size up 1/2 size)

I have shown this racerback maxi dress from The Loft Outlet numerous times on social media this weekend and you may have already seen it, but it is blog worthy! This is perfect for date night, brunch with the girls, or even a great vacation look. The top is made of knit and the bottom falls beautifully for a feminine silhouette. This dress fits TTS, and I am wearing a medium for reference. See it here. I checked the price on this last night and I think it is still 40% off and if you BUY 2+ ITEMS GET 15% OFF WITH CODE SPRING15.

Outfit Details: // Racerback Maxi Dress // Wooden Handbag (I have the large size) // Similar Sandals // Similar Leather Necklace

I found these Camo shorts at Walmart to wear around the house and I am loving them! These come in multiple color options and fit tts. These have pockets and a drawstring waist and are very comfortable for an everyday outfit. I added a racerback tank and the slub knit active jacket from Talbots. This jacket is by far one of my favorites to wear on repeat, in fact, I have 2 colors…yes…it’s that good! This has been one of the most popular outfits on Pinterest this weekend…so let me know what you think! For an everyday look, this is one of my faves from this post. See the camo shorts here.

Most women over 40 and 50 tend to like the 5, 7, and 9-inch shorts and I am right with you. These are the perfect length for wearing around the house or out running errands. These are easily worn with sandals, wedges, or sneakers, which makes them the perfect short for me. As I am getting towards my mid 50’s, I can see where modesty means much more to me than it did when I was younger. Not to mention…I do not look 20 anymore in shorts HAHA!! The outfit details are below, and these shorts come in multiple colors to choose from. My sandals are sold out right now, when they come back in stock I will let everyone know.

Outfit Details: // Chambray Shirt // Tank // Shorts //

    Every outfit is so cute. Hard to pick a favorite but if I have to pick one to wear right now it would have to be the off the shoulder paisley top and khaki short. Not only cute but comfortable looking and the heeled sandals gives it just a bit of dressiness that I like. Thank you for all your ideas, Beverly. I enjoy see what you come up with for us to always look our best!

    • Dana

      I’m a newbie! I found you on Pinterest. All the outfits are cute. I think my favorite is the chambray shirt with khakis. I need the racer back tank!! I also loves the camp shorts too

    • Terri DeSisto

      Love the off the shoulder blouse and shorts , the sandals really tie everything in nicely. Very classy! I love the different styles you show and the fact that you make it affordable. Thanks for all your great ideas!!

  • Kelly Aguilar

    My favorite is Paisley off the shoulder with Kahki shorts. That is a perfect length. Have a blessed week.♡

  • Shawna Stearns

    Yep! I’m becoming considerably modest with age as well! Love the shorts and they are flattering. Thanks for sharing!

  • Liz Jones

    I love the off the shoulder paisley blouse and khaki shorts, but sometimes at my age I think I’m too old for ruffles. I may not buy the blouse because of that but I still love the look

  • Emily Robinson

    Hi I’m new here and love your style!! My favorite outfits are the white jeans and blouse and the camo shorts and Talbots jacket! Looking forward to more style inspiration!

  • Deb

    Good morning Beverly. I am getting a couple pair of the Walmart shorts. I can’t wear Daisy Dukes any longer but these look like they are the perfect length. Such pretty colors too! Have a wonderful peaceful day.

  • Tammy Gravis

    The maxi dress is beautiful and your skin looks amazing! What body lotion do you use and do you use a self-tanner? Thanks!

  • Amy

    I really like the outfits with the 7-in shorts. I’m on the hunt for new ones, so I will definitely check those out!

  • Laura Clark

    I just discovered you a week ago and you helped inspire my weekend wear for a winery trip. I’m obsessed with camo so I love the shorts. Smocked paisley blouse is super cute too!

  • Lois

    New here ! Discovered your style a few weeks ago, and am loving it ! Your looks are so elegant, I really want to buy it all !! Every outfit was perfect, but I truly loved the paisley blouse, and the maxi dress ! 🙂

  • Amanda

    I really like the camo shorts outfit, but I’d probably be most likely to wear the white jeans one. I’m scared of camo and shorts 😲

  • Jami Rogers

    I love all the looks, but I’m really eyeing that off the shoulder paisley blouse! I already ordered the camo shorts and one other color! Those look so comfy for walks or the campfire. I’m so amped for warmer weather here in Michigan! Have a great day and good luck with your renovations!

  • Sandra Cunningham

    I love all of your outfits. I am a sucker for camo though so plan to shop for the shorts today!

  • Melanie S

    Good Morning! Definitely have my coffee ☕️ in hand. So much cleaning to do today. I am a cold shoulder/off the shoulder gal. It’s one of my favorite tops for a date night or a day out with my girls. So as you can tell my favorite outfit is the off the shoulder with khaki shorts. I have noticed the older I get the more I am into longer shorts like you were saying. Makes me feel like my age and I love that. Have a wonderful day ♥️

  • Kelly Palmer

    Good Monday morning! Troy and I had a good weekend together. It was a good mixture of getting things done around the house and going out and about to enjoy ourselves. I love all of the outfits but my favorites are the racerback maxi dress and the camo shorts. I was wondering, do you have any recommendations for a strapless bra? I was looking this weekend and I am having a difficult time finding one in a store and I am hesitant to order one online. I am off today and will be cleaning house and doing laundry, exciting times! 😉 I hope you have a wonderful week!

  • Pamela Gibson

    My Fav is the white pants with the Cato paisley bouse. I need those so badly. For second I think I need to make a wlamart run for those shorts.

  • Christine Simpson

    Love all the outfits!
    That’s the worst part of home improvement no matter how hard you try to contain the dust it gets EVERYWHERE 😂
