Look for Less: Monet Mazur in the Madewell x Mickey Mouse California Tee and Cropped Flare Jeans

Money Mazur Madewell Mickey Mouse Tee Look for Less
Who doesn't love a mom who embraces her inner-child with her kids? Graphic tees styled well give off the effortless cool girl look that works on anyone, regardless of season or age! Actress Monet Mazur sports this Madewell Mickey Mouse tee with cute cropped flare jeans and simple sandals. If $45 for a basic graphic tee is a little steep, JCPenney has a Mickey tee for $12 and also comes in plus size! And if you're going to go with a fun tee, might as well go all-in on playful accessories with bright red sunnies and a straw tote!

Madewell slide sandal look for less
Nothing's better than slipping on a no-fuss sandal in the summer and heading outside, which makes Madewell's 'The Boardwalk Post' slide sandal the perfect warm-weather shoe! It's easy and oh-so-chic. For $59.50 it's not exactly going to break the bank, but I love the look for less option because it's just $24.99 which means you won't feel guilty wearing these to the beach or even around the pool.
