I’m not a Wal-Mart shopper. The lines are too long, the location of items doesn’t make sense to me, and you can never find anyone to help when you have a question. And don’t even get me started on the people-watching! But, when I heard they’d introduced a new line of clothing that was getting good reviews, I figured I’d check it out the next time I needed to do a grocery run.
The store I went to had a pretty good selection of sizes and items in the new Time and Tru brand. The prices maxed out at around $20 and the quality was comparable to Target or Old Navy in my opinion. The line seemed to be mostly Bohemian-inspired items that were on-trend, everyday pieces that you could mix and match. Like most Wal-Mart brands, the items seemed to run large and I took a small in most of them.
First up is this darling pom pom tunic, which I am wearing in a larger size than I normally would so it can work as a cover-up.
I love the pom pom details and the elastic neckline allows you to pull it down on your shoulders or wear it further up, depending on your preference. I’m always looking for a cute, fun, and comfortable cover-up, so for $10, this was a no-brainer for me! This also came in a fun pink, blue, or white version.
Next I tried on this embroidered peasant top in a poppy red color. Though it also came in 7 other colors, this one would be perfect for not only Cinco de Mayo but any of the upcoming summer patriotic holidays with its red, white and blue motif!
It’s cotton knit material was super comfy and the floral embroidery is so on-point right now. It was the most expensive thing I tried on, but still under $15.
I also loved this striped flutter sleeve top for around $12.
Pair it with white jeans and you are good to go for any number of summer events! I love the feminine flutter detail of the sleeves as well as the flattering square neckline. I am a sucker for stripes, but it also came in a floral coral pattern as well as a green stripe and a floral/stripe combo.
With a motto like “Stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside”, who can resist a pineapple pattern? I’m wearing this fun pineapple print tank with white jeans, but it would have been super cute with jean shorts too.
It’s pretty lightweight, so I’d definitely recommend a tank underneath, but for six bucks and some change, that’s a steal! It also comes in 14 other patterns/colors, so stock up! I fell in love with this one too because well, duh, stripes 😉
And speaking of jean shorts, I found these denim cutoffs in a dark, destructed wash for just under $14. They have an awesome stretch to them, making them uber-comfy, and were just the right length for my long legs. They come in 5 other colors and I am wearing a size 4 in them.
I’m also wearing a stretchy v-neck tee that’s definitely a summer staple. It comes in 11 other colors and at under $8 each, you may just want to stock up!
These distressed cotton twill shorts in “red rum” were pretty great too. The 4.5″ inseam was on the short side for me, but nothing indecent. They also come in an army green and are just under $14. I love the “worn-in” look of these and the hint of spandex makes them beyond comfortable. I paired them with this $11 tassel peasant tank for a casual Bohemian look that would be perfect for a barbecue, lunch date, outdoor concert, etc.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with Wal-mart’s new Time and Tru brand and will definitely be checking back as they come out with new pieces. Check out your local store or for a larger selection and to see the whole collection, visit the website here.
