1) Erin – Busbee

First up is our fearless leader, Erin Busbee. She’s can rock a pair of denim shorts. In the photos above she’s wearing a pair of white Agolde shorts that are super flattering because of the higher waist and longer inseam. She styled them with a simple chambray button-down shirt and espadrilles. The other pair of denim shorts she’s wearing are by Moussy Vintage (one of her favorite denim brands). She styled them with a white peasant top and studded sandals.

  1. HI Erin – I enjoy much of what you write but I must comment that I don’t see you as one to wear walmart clothes. I think you might come back with:: You ‘would’ definitely wear this or that and it’s sweet of you to think of “The Masses” as is said in the fashion world. I know you try to help Everyone but your readers really get that this is a walmart deal.

    1. Thanks, Marie! I genuinely love the Scoop line. And, I only feature things that I really love. As I mentioned in one of my first Walmart posts, I used to shop at Scoop whenever I could. It was a high-end boutique located in Manhattan that expanded to several other cities. I was excited to discover they created this accessible line at Walmart. I also think now… more than ever… it’s important to offer really affordable fashion options. Thanks! Erin xo
