Amazon Fashion Hunt - Hits and Misses


Okay friends, I think it's safe to say by now that we are all huge fans of Amazon.  I've loved hearing all the wonderful feedback from you guys when I share my Amazon fashion finds.  You all know that I love nothing more than finding a good "steal" that looks and feels like a splurge, and with Amazon fashion, sometimes you find some real winners and sometimes you find some real disappointments ;) 

That being said, I've decided to do a little Amazon fashion hunt twice a month. I will plan to purchase anywhere from 8 to 12 pieces (feel free to send over request of what you would like to see) and I will also try them on for you guys here and on Instastories while letting you know whether or not I think they are hits or misses. 

I am happy to report that on this particular hunt that I found quite a few hits and only one miss.  Make sure you watch my Instastories today if you want to see a live try-on session for each piece (including the miss) below. 


Hits


Love this blouse!!  It can be easily adjusted by moving the elastic to fit snug on your shoulders, and to also give it the right fit / look for your chest.  It comes in five colors and runs tts (I'm wearing a small).



Supersoft Terry Long-Sleeve Hooded Pullover // Soft French Terry Legging 


This pullover is lightweight and SUPER soft!  And these leggings may just be the BEST pair of cotton leggings I've ever put on!  They are thick without being too tight, and give you slimming support without cutting your circulation off :) 

The leggings and the pullover both run tts and I'm wearing them both in a small. 




When you open this dress out of the package don't let it scare you...it comes very wrinkled!  I almost put it right back in the box, but I decided to steam it and give it a try.  Well, I am so happy I did, because the wrinkles came right out and the dress is so cute!  It's definitely an oversized dress though, so I would recommend you go down one size.  They smallest they have is a small, and even though it's a little big on me, I am still keeping it because I think it would look super cute belted or worn with leggings and tall boots.  This tunic dress would be great for any preggo mamas! 



Terry Cotton Cold Shoulder Tunic // Built-in Bra Tank // Soft French Terry Legging


For the record, I've never purchased anything from this brand (Daily Ritual) that I didn't absolutely love!  This cold shoulder tunic is so comfy and looks perfect with leggings, plus, I love that it completely covers your rear.  So everyone, and I mean everyone, needs these built-in bra tanks.  I'm pretty sure I'll be living in these all the time and will hardly ever put on a bra again...ha! 

Both the tunic, built-in bra tank, and leggings run tts.  I'm wearing a size small in all three. 



Once again, another piece by Daily Ritual:)  Most of their dresses are too long on me, but this one is the perfect length.  This is such a great and versatile dress that can be worn dressed up or down, and one that can be worn throughout all seasons. 

Dress runs big, and for sizing reference, I'm wearing an xs. 




Tie Knot Henley // Jeans ($36 and on major sale) 

So, here's the affordable version of the beloved tie knot henley.  This is such a flattering top, but a lot of you mentioned that you're having trouble tying it, so at some point today on Instastories I'm going to try it on and show you guys;) 

Henley fits tts and I'm wearing a small. 





Finally, a cute and well fitting crossover sweater that won't break the bank!  And best part, you can wear a regular bra with it! 

Runs tts and I'm wearing a small. 



Fleece Sherpa Pullover // Jeans ($36 and on major sale) 
I'm currently wearing this soft furry piece of heaven as I type this, and yes, it's still blazing hot outside, but Todd keeps our house quite cold.  But do yourself a favor and snag this ($22) cozy fleece pullover.



Misses

Okay, so this top looked so cute online, but in person...not so much.  The fit was really awkward, it was completely see through, and it felt really cheap.


*And don't forget, leave me a comment if there is anything particular you want to see in the next Amazon hit and misses hunt!!!*

Shopbop Sale Top 10 - Fall Pieces Under $100



The Shopbop event of the season just started today, and as I'm sure most of you know, this is a great time to stock up and save on fall pieces! And because I like to keep things budget friendly (even with a sale), I've rounded up what I think are the top fall pieces under $100. 


I cannot get over the price of these gorgeous suede booties and that's before the discount!! I am pretty sure these will sell out super fast, so if you love them and they have your size, I would snag them now! 


Nothing beats a good white blouse and I'm loving the lace and cutout details on this one. 



I have the basic leggings and the moto leggings by Spanx, but I really like the solid sleek look of these leggings. And as you know, Spanx hardly ever goes on sale so now is the perfect time to grab them. 



If you don't have an anorak jacket, this is the one you need. I love the color, the cut, and the fact that you can adjust the waist. 


Dark wash high waist jeans are a must have for fall! These have awesome reviews and the price can't be beat. 


Okay, I am SO excited that the fur vest is coming back again this season. The color and the fit of this one is amazing! 



Loving the bell sleeves and the low cut turtleneck on this pretty sweater. 


This is such a great basic piece that can be worn layered or alone. 


I have been dying to get a pair of overalls this year and I love these!! I will report back when they arrive on how they look and fit. 


How stunning is this black lace dress. It would be perfect for a fall or winter wedding.

Fall Fashion - Kids Edition



Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. Todd and I had a blast with friends in Atlanta watching the Braves win while celebrating Todd's 40th!! I'm planning on sharing pictures and details on our weekend later this week, but today I want to share these two cuties! 

Now that Carson and Taylor are both getting older, finding clothes for them is no easy task. I feel like there are very few styles (especially with Carson) that we can both agree on. Thankfully, Nordstrom carries it all when it comes to every kids style, so we were able to grab quite a few pieces for both Carson and Taylor's fall wardrobe. 



















Taylor's Look

Carson's Look


Taylor's dress and booties are by Tucker and Tate, which is one of my favorite brands for babies and all boys and girls. Their clothes are always super cute, well made, and budget friendly. And on another note, I can't get over Carson's new Joe jeans that were only $25! And yes, he has the tiniest waist ever so he still wears a size seven in jeans and still needs a belt with them :) They also have an adjustable waist for those of you with little ones that don't want to wear a belt. 

And below are a few other pieces that I picked up for Carson and Taylor to add to their fall wardrobes this year. 




Thank you Nordstrom for partnering on this post.

Fall Favorites Under $50


 Good morning friends, and happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a great week so far. 

Even though it's still pretty hot around here, I can't help but to think about fall. I love almost everything about fall, but a few of my favorites are pumpkin flavored coffee, beef chili that's been simmering all day, evenings on the patio with a glass of red wine, and of course all the fall fashion. 

And y'all know I love a good bargain as much as the next girl, so today I wanted to share my fall fashion favorites that are all under $50!! 


You can never go wrong with a white blouse, and I'm loving the neck detail on this one. And the best part is it's 40% off right now with the code NEWNOW and under $30! 



I cannot get over the fact that this mule is under $50! It looks so much more expensive to me, and I love the tiny brass studs for added detail. 


Bring on all the high-waist leggings this fall! And these babies come in seven different colors, they have great reviews, and they're only $22! 



Pretty sure I'm going to order this top in all the colors. It's super cute by itself, and would also look adorable layered. 


I've been on the hunt for a good pair of deconstructed jeans for fall and with the awesome reviews on these along with being 40% off, I think I'm going to pull the trigger!  




This vest reminds me of the J. Crew vest that I absolutely adore, but this one cost a fraction of the price at $30. 


LOVE everything about this dress!!! It would look so cute with pumps for a dressier look and short booties for a more casual look. 



Speaking of booties, umm...how amazing are these!? I love the shorter block heel and the fact that they easily slide on. 



How cozy does this open front cardigan look? Well, it's only $22 and comes in four colors! 

YES for a cute pair of sneakers that can be worn with yoga pants or jeans!! Added bonus, they slip on easily and are only $28. 



And last, but not least, everyone needs a good pair of joggers. These have stellar reviews and come in ten different colors!!
