Amazon Finds: August 2020
Happy end of summer! Well, at least when both my kiddos are back in school it feels like it’s the end even though this weekend will be in the 100s again in DFW, doh. As more and more of you have been thinking about back to school I start getting in the cozy fall mood. So this month I have a mix match of fall, summer and random finds for ya!
Sizing info: I am 5’5 and size 12/ L bottom and 36DD/ M/ 10 top. “tts” means true to size based on the given sizing chart, in Amazon I tend to size up if in-between.
Fit Tips: Dress tts, L // Sweater size down if in-between, M // Bootie size up 1/2 // Tory Burch sneakers tts // Moto jacket tts, M
I’m loving how versatile this Daily Ritual dress is! The thicker jersey material and big front pockets makes it an easy one to dress up or down. I’m in the brick color but one of my friends has the lighter pink and it’s also adorable!
Lark & Ro Split Neck Ruched Flutter Sleeve Dress (size down if in-between, 12)
This dress is perfect for work! It has such a cute ruffle sleeve and neckline and since it’s lined it not too clingy but really flows well. At the was it is just a removable tie so if you want to but in your own belt you easily can.
Jacket size up, L // Dress tts, L // Boots tts
This swing dress was such. surprise because it’s a bit thicker than the other styles I have from Amazon and it’s a bit longer so great for some of my taller girls. Its cute with boots or flats making it a great casual work dress as well.
Fit Tips: size up for larger chest, in a M and needed a L for the chest coverage
This wrap dress has my name all over it! First I LOVE a great wrap dress because I feel like it accentuates my curves well and this one has good chest coverage and length. With the 3/4 sleeve and collar it can be worn in warmer weather and into fall easily. Plus for the price it can’t be beat, one to get in several colors!
Fit tips: tts, L // jeans tts, 12P // Booties size up 1/2
This sweater I was a little hesitant at first because I’m not always a fan of a mock neck but this one is soo cute on! The neck does not go too high and with the shorter more boxy body it’s a great option for a front tuck with button fly jeans.
These jeans are KUT from the Kloth from the Anniversary sale but Amazon also carries a good variety of their jeans here.
Fit Tips: Cardigan tts, L // Tee size down if in-between, M // Yoga Crop tts, L
Now I know that many of you tried to get your hands on the leopard print Barefoot Dreams cardigan but honestly I love this one more! It’s not as thick as the barefoot dreams but still has a good length and weight to it. With the pockets and buttons it’s super cute with leggings, jeans or just around the house like I’m wearing it!
Fit tips: Cardigan size up, L // tank size up if in-between, L // Jegging tts, L
This longer length cardigan has been a favorite of mine for years. It is soft, stretchy and I LOVE the color for fall. It’s not too thick making it a great option for early fall when it’s still a bit warm but I still need something on my arms. Paired with these stretchy amazon jeggings its also a great casual business outfit.
Fit Tips: cardigan size down, M // tank size up, runs small, L // Rothys’ size up 1/2
This cardigan was a great find for a lightweight shorter option. The fabric is a bit more silky feeling than any of the others so good for business casual outfits. Also since it has no pockets it’s very slimming to the body and not adding any bulk.
This chunky cardigan is so perfect for late fall when I want all things rust colored and cozy. It’s running oversized so for sure size down for a more slimming look.
Fit tips: Cardigan runs large size down, in a L need M // tunic tts, L // flats size down if in-between
This cozy plush cardigan is so soft my daughter immediately tried to steal it! While I’ve heard others compare it to the Barefoot Dreams cardigan it’s really not that same fabric. While it is soft and has a great color just know that the texture is more fluffy. This one ran very large though so size down!
This lightweight fitted sweater was such a great Amazon find! It is soft and fitted without being too clingy. I LOVE the color and it looks great with my leopard flats. I know a ton of you have picked this one up but if you haven’t do it.
This thicker sweater is another great fall find! I love the chunky texture and perfect fall color. I can see wearing this with a ton of dresses and boots into fall.
Fit Tips: Ruffle Neck blouse size up for larger chest, L // pants tts but run long, 12
If you love Wit and Wisdom then you are going to love these work pants with the same ab-solution technology! They have an internal stretchy waistband and overall legging feeling but come in some cute work approbate prints. These are headed back to Amazon for me though because they ran long (are tucked under for the photo).
I’m loving these affordable green leggings from Amazon basics! They are more of a olive heather in person but fit great and are not too thick. As you can see they can be dressed up or down depending on your workwear or day.
Fit Tips: Joggers tts, LP // tank size up and runs long, L // Jacket size up L medium wash
I FINALLY found some scrubs that don’t look like scrubs! These jogger style pants have some of the medical features without the whole ER vibe. They are a stretch fabric but not as thin as most scrubs and I love the jogger style. Mid rise with a comfortable stretchy waistband and are available in petite and tall, I went with a petite and they were full length hitting right at my ankle.
Pointed Toe Flat Shoes Knit (size up 1/2)
These pointed toe shoes have the almost exact feel as Rothys but are not washable and are a fraction of the price. I really liked the more muted yellow color and it they have coordinated so well with fall items.
Breathable Mesh Flats Leopard Print (True to Size)
If you have been watching Facebook at all this month you have seen these comfy flats like a million times! When I got them I thought ok affordable option for a Rothy’s but these fit even better because the toe is not so narrow.
Unfortunately they only come in whole sizes and when I ordered my 2nd pair in black these were very beat up and felt stretched out. So if in-between size down and maybe be a little wary of the black color.
Breathable Mesh Flats (these felt about a 1/2 size bigger in black)
I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of nude pumps that are a touch lighter than my Hazel pumps from Sam Edelman and I was excited to see these from Dreampairs because I have a ton of friends that love their shoes. Unfortunately these ended up like a light pink vs nude so they went back. These also fit tight so size up 1/2
Sketchers Washable Flats (true to size)
These sketchers washable flats are perfect for those of you looking for a washable shoe that’s actually comfortable! The toe is not too tight and I’m loving this leopard print.
