Amazon Fashion Hunt Hit and Misses

It's been almost two years since I've done an Amazon hit or miss post, but you guys always gave me great feedback whenever I posted them so I'm excited to bring them back!  You can check out the two most popular Amazon hit or miss post here and here.  

I am keeping my fingers crossed that next month I'll even more fun fashion finds when I do another one of these post.  The kids start back school in two weeks so I'm hoping this means we can get back into more of a routine and I can also put some focus on losing this baby weight and finding some cute new outfits!

HITS

Y'all this necklace is stunning in person, and the quality seems to be really good, and for $13 it is truly a steal. I ended up just wearing it with the two necklaces because I liked that look better, but you can you can mix and match any of three because they are all separate pieces. 


This dress is such a good one, and it's perfect for now and also into the cooler fall. It would look so cute paired with a jean jacket and booties. For sizing reference it runs large and I am wearing it in the small. 


I love the fit of this top mainly because the rushing hides my mid section haha! Plus, it's just so versatile, you can pair it with leggings and sneakers for a super casual look, or jeans and booties for a more put togther look. This one also runs on the big side and I am wearing it in a small. And these jeans are so good especially for my shorties :) They hit right at the bottom of my ankle, they are a good high-rise, and the price point is awesome! The jeans run tts, and for reference I am wearing them in a size 6. 

This is such a fun dress, and it's so comfortable! I am currently wearing it over my swimsuit as a coverup, but I think depending on your height you could also wear it as a dress, or pair it with leggings as well. Also, it runs a little on the big side and I am wearing it in the small! 



This dress is a total HIT, and I am absolutely in love with it! For sizing reference it runs big and I would size down one size. I am wearing it in the medium, and it was still a little loose on me. 




This dress is a MUST for now and for fall!!! Runs tts, and I am wearing it in a size medium. 




This maxi is so comfy and lightweight, plus, I am loving the classic blue and white pattern.  That being said, if blue and white aren't your thing it also comes in ten other colors and patterns...and it's also under $30!  It runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing a medium. 



I've ordered several other shorter dresses from this brand and the quality has always been great so I knew I would be golden there, but I've got to say, I love the print and the fit of this maxi a little bit more than the shorter ones.  It's another one that's under $30.  It runs tts and I'm wearing a medium. 




This little gem is probably my favorite from this month's orders!  The material is nice and thick, so it's not see through at all.  It runs big, and for reference, I'm wearing a small. 




This is actually a dress I bought last year, but I recently wore it and noticed it had been re-stocked so I wanted to make sure I shared it again.  It's such an amazing dress, and it looks and feels way more expensive than it actually is! 



First off, this dress is on major sale right now for $22, plus, the material feels amazing and the colors / patterns available are endless!  It also has pockets, and depending on how perky or small you are up top, you don't have to wear a bra...so yeah, it's a definite hit :) 




So many amazing things I could say about this swimsuit, but for now, I'll just point out the main details. It sucks you in like no other, but isn't to restricting where you can't breath.  It has awesome boob support and is lined with light padding.  It also has great booty coverage without looking frumpy.  It runs tts and I'm wearing a medium! 



This dress is such a good one, but I almost included it in the misses because of my boob situation.  Then it hit me, not everyone is breast-feeding at the moment...ha.....and besides that, I absolutely love everything about this dress!  I've decided to keep it since Reese is almost seven months and isn't nursing as much! 


MISSES

Okay, the fit on this one is SO bad.  I was going to link it up anyway so you guys could judge for yourself and see it on a different body type, but it's no longer available. 


I was on the fence on whether or not I should include this one on the hit or misses list, but ultimately, I decided that since I was sending it back because of size, I needed to include it in the misses.  I did, however, order it in two other colors in the small and as soon as they arrive I will do a review on them.

Back To School Style (In Person Learning)


 The Hewitt kids are headed back to school, and as you can probably tell by their smiles, Taylor and Carson are both ready and super excited!  After talking with the kids and doing a lot of thinking, we decided to sign the kids up for in-person learning at their school here on the island.  Although we're not exactly sure what in-person learning will look like this year, I do know that it will provide our kids with at least a little bit of normalcy back into their lives! 

I am pretty sure we can all agree that from a kids perspective, one of the most exciting things about the start of a new school year is back to school shopping for all the cool new clothes, accessories, supplies, and a new backpack of course!  I can still remember the new backpack and the new shoes were the two things I would get the most excited about when starting a new school year.  Carson is just like me when it comes to that, while Taylor is all about the accessories and the little supplies!  Luckily, I was able to find EVERYTHING online at Walmart.com this year.  And not only were the prices AMAZING, but both Carson and Taylor were able to find clothes and shoes in styles they loved! 



Even though sweet little Reese isn't going anywhere this year, I couldn't resist grabbing her a few things online at Walmart as well.  To say that Walmart has stepped up their fashion game would be a big understatement! 


I can't even handle how grown up these two look, and Carson in those shades...I die! 






And if you're anything like me, you like to see everything all laid out so I did a little flat lay of my favorite fashion pieces and accessories that I ordered for the kids.  Carson and Taylor were both SO excited when they walked into their bedrooms and saw all their new back to school loot! 




I seriously cannot even handle the cuteness of Taylor's $11 backpack set!  Not only are all the different designs adorable, but the quality is also amazing. 




Taylor's favorite back to school item was definitely her iTouch watch!  It not only has educational games on it, but it also has a camera and a timer! 




 I have a funny feeling this will be the look on Reese's face every afternoon when she sees these two walking up after school. 


Like I said, Walmart really nailed it this year in the fashion department.  I have also included a few MORE of my favorite back to school fashion pieces for you to shop below. 


Thank you Walmart for partnering on this post.

Good Quality Affordable Workout Attire


 I finally feel like I have both of our kiddos into a good weekly routine and the baby is on a decent nap schedule, so I've decided it's officially time to get this baby weight off!  I miss sharing outfits with you guys so much, but I have refused to let myself purchase anything that's not pajamas or nursing tanks...ha!  

As of yesterday, I've dropped five pounds so I decided to treat myself to a few new workout pieces.  I went with a few of my favorite affordable Amazon brands that I know are great quality.  I'll be sure to share a little try-on session when my new pieces arrive, but for now, here's what I ordered along with a few I've had forever that I LOVE!  



First up, these tanks are AMAZING!!!  I got them in the second color combo below, but I'm planning on grabbing this color set as well.  For sizing reference, I feel like these run a little big so I would size down.  I have them in a size small, but I'm wearing a medium in most tops these days. 








Okay, so y'all know I love this brand of yoga pants.  I swear they're almost identical to Lululemon, but only a fraction of the price!!!  Another favorite from this brand are these scallop pants.  They are a little thicker than these below, but they both suck you in! 





Not only does this tank come with a built-in bra, but how cool is the strappy back?!  Oh yeah, and this is another brand that looks and feels like Lululemon, but instead of $60, it's only $24!







I am normally a Nike girl, but as soon as I spotted these New Balance kicks I fell in love with the design and the light color for summer.  Added bonus is that they're on major sale right now for $38! 





I mean, how genius are these headbands!?!?  Thankfully, our gym is back open, and we took yoga this morning, and man, these headbands would've been perfect to hold my mask on! 



This is another purchase I just made and I've only worn them twice, but I absolutely LOVE them! 

 



How soft and comfy does this yoga cardigan look?!!  Plus, it comes in tons of different colors and it's only $19!
