Look who’s back, back again… ok ok if you didn’t grow up in the 90s then this went over your head but regardless I missed a month of Amazon finds but I’m back. I realized I have found so many amazing things and a monthly blog post is needed to round it all up in!
Now if you are new here I basically buy a ton of things from Amazon on a regular basis, some of it is amazing some of it is well crap. I try to give you the good bad and the ugly. So let’s get started!
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 in georgia peach tts, L // flip flops in rose gold tts
I saw this cute t-shirt dress and wasn’t 100% wow’d but it was the fun summer color that sold me on trying it out. Once I received it and put it on I definitely loved it more! It has a good, not too fitted, but not too loose t-shirt style and is long enough for my day to day mom life of picking up legos.
Fit Tips: dress in poppy red tts, L // sandals in tan tts
This t-shirt material ruffle sleeve dress has a very similar fit to the one above but “dressed up” a bit with the ruffle sleeves. The ruffles come down the front of the dress and then have a piece of fabric under the arms to hide any bra straps.
Fit Tips: dress in black tts, L // jacket in medium blue wash size up if in-between, L // sandals in tan tts
This LBD has been a favorite of mine for over two years! It’s a good jersey fabric, not too short and not too clingy. The v-neck is just enough but not too low that you are exposing anything. Since it does not have pockets it’s very sliming to the sides and looks great dressed up or down.
LOUGEWEAR & ROMPERS
Fit Tips: joggers brick tts, L // tank size up if in-between, L // flip flops in rose gold tts
These sand wash joggers have quickly become a favorite and when I took them on my beach vacation and wore them A LOT I knew I needed more colors. They are very lightweight and have a modal/ sand wash feel so silky but not too thin. I love the pockets and thicker waistband. Since these were part of the Amazon fashion sale last week sizes and colors are pretty limited but click around there are still a few in stock.
I’ve paired it with an older Daily Ritual tank that I love but unfortunately has been sold out for awhile.
Tank | Jogger | Slim Flip Flop
Fit Tips: joggers brick tts, L // tank size up if in-between, L // flip flops in rose gold tts
Now this is another one of those outfits that this EXACT combo has not restocked but each piece is so good that it’s worth mentioning. This v-neck is the Daily Ritual super soft Terry material so a thicker, stretchy jersey but with an interior brushed softness. It’s a tank that I’ll be wearing from now until October! This is one of those tops that you will want in ALL the colors.
The Joggers are my #2 all time favorites and since my #1 has been low stock for awhile (get my #1 25% off w/ code RYANNE25 here) it’s worth grabbing these in any color available in your size. They are a thicker jersey/ modal material and have a good cuff making it easy to pull up if wanted and pockets.
Fit Tips: romper dark navy tts, L // tote color brown 2 with scarf removed // flip flops in rose gold tts
There are only 2 rompers I’ve ever really loved or thought were worth a flip the first was a romper made last spring by Gibson Look and the second is this Daily Ritual one. It has nice wide straps, thick jersey material that my thick thighs doesn’t eat and an elastic waistband that this proportionate to the size romper it is (aka not too big / tight). I’m in the navy color which is pretty dark so if you want black and your size is sold out, go with navy it’s pretty darn close!
TANKS & TOPS
Fit Tips: Skirt tts, 12 // stretchy ribbed tank size up if in-between, L // wedges tts
This stretchy ribbed tank was such a goos surprise since it has a good scoop, length and thickness. Since this is a bit longer and stretchy it’s a great option for a cute front tie or can be worn loose.
I have it paired with a non Amazon skirt but it’s too cute to not share! This KUT skirt runs a bit larger but I stayed with my true size to ensure that the white was not too tight.
The final item I want to share are these Steve Madden wedges! I love the thin straps and lengthening look of a tan wedge but these do take a bit of breaking in. The toe strap needed to loosen up as I wore them and in the process made a few indentions but now they feel great.
Fit Tips: runs large so stay tts for more fitted look, size up for looser fit in a L // jeans tts, 31P 30% off w/ code HOTSTUFF // miller sandals size up 1/2
Talk about a great shirt! This longer stripe tunic is perfect for a swimsuit cover up or long tunic. The sleeves have a roll to them and it’s a lighter weight Oxford material that really breathes well. I did size up to a large in this for chest room but feel like I could go down a size for a more fitted look/ feel.
Fit Tips: tank size up if larger chest, L // true to size, 31 // sandals size up 1/2 in makeup color
This tank has quickly become a favorite and you can tell since I’m showing it in two colors! It has a great scoop neck, pocket, thin feel and good length. The downside is that fun colors like these have been selling out like CRAZY! I’m in a large which was perfect for a larger bust but if you are on the smaller side I would stay more true to size than going up.
Fit Tips: tank size up if larger chest, L // shorts size down, 10 // sandals tts
I had to show my other color because well, I love it! The shorts are from Nordstrom and still one of the best rolled denim shorts I have found because they do not squeeze my thighs, they loosen up a bit while wearing and they have a good length.
Fit Tips: sweat shirt size up if in-between, L in French blue // shorts tts, 31 // flip flops tts
I have been on the hunt for some good “beach” sweatshirts that mix of lightweight but long sleeve for summer and this one is a winner! It has more of that viscose feel so silky and light versus a heavy Terry or sweatshirt material. I love the dolman sleeve style of this where it’s loose and flowy. I did size up to a large to ensure chest room and that was a good call.
Fit Tips: pullover size up if in-between, L // shorts tts, 31 // Birkenstocks tts
This hooded pullover has a similar lightweight beachy feel as the dolman sleeve but with a hood and rounded hem. It reminds me of summer nights in California and would be perfect for a beach campfire! Wearing the hood, not required lol!
OTHER FUN STUFF
This lightweight reader was the ONLY thing I wanted for Mother’s Day and I’ve been using it A TON! It’s super light weight and the side buttons for page turning makes reading so easy. It also has adjustable warm/ cool lighting and auto function to dim as the day goes on. I’m so glad I had this handy deal at the beach to read a hilarious book, Class Mom!
This cool water bottle made it on my Father’s Day gift guide because it is soo cool! Basically it hooks up to an app that tracks your water intake, if you start to fall behind during the day it will light up to remind you to drink more. Comes in a ton of colors AND I found it on Amazon as well!
This cute sling backpack has quickly become a travel/ day trip must have! It holds a ton plus side mesh pockets for two water bottles. It’s under $20 and comes in 18 colors! Mine is the Living coral color.
I have seen similar bags for $100 and thought WHAT?! This cute bag from Amazon holds 4 towels along with sunscreen, goggles and a washcloth for the inevitable times that my son gets sand in his eyes. This is the large size (which I think holds a ton) but it’s also available in XL. For under half of the more expensive bags this is a great deal!
This cute crossbody I’ve had for awhile and it’s great for the summer months when I want a small purse but don’t want to worry that one of my more expensive ones runs into pool or beach water! It comes in 17 colors for whatever the occasion but I love a pop of red!
This round straw bag from Amazon has been my go-to for a more dressed up Sumer look for over a year. I love that it has a snap clasp to keep everything closed and really can hold a lot! When I travel I stick all my jewelry in here to protect it then have a good “going out” bag.
We have been talking A TON about what fall is going to bring with the kids going back to school and this year I finally will have both my kiddos in Elementary school! Now since my son is used to sister being around to help open things these Bentgo boxes are our go to for school lunches because with two snaps all his lunch is ready to eat! You can also find prints and solid colors of the Bentgo boxes and the “fresh” style that is a bit bigger and can hold a sandwich (or salad as my daughter likes).
Paired with these inexpensive amazon lunch bags (that easily fit the Bentgo box) we are set for whatever fall throws at us. The mermaid tail print is under this listing and the shark camo print under this one.
