AMAZON TRY-ON & GIFT GUIDE | CYBER MONDAY EDITION

Good morning friends! I’ve got a fun post for you today sponsored by Amazon Fashion!

Wasn’t that long weekend good?!  We used the time to do a big house cleaning, grocery run, and some more decorating!  I mentioned it before, but I’m keeping things extra simple this year with the goal to do less with more meaning.

I created a little Christmas notebook and omitted the things that would only stress me out and included more giving and volunteer opportunities.  I really think this will be my favorite Christmas yet. I’d love to hear how you keep your holidays on the simple side, your tips will help me out!

It’s been a huge week for holiday sales- did you catch the early sales & my dressing room post with Ali-Shaun on Black Friday?!  I swear, that girl is so fun!

But, today is the Mother of All Sale Days- Cyber Monday!  I was thinking about what you might be most interested in seeing today, and I figured it would be a big Amazon post since so many of you (and me!) rely heavily on those Amazon deliveries to make our lives easier.

Every minute counts, especially this time of year and no one wants to be fighting traffic and crowds and the parking lot at the mall!  #nothankyou! I appreciate that Amazon saves me so much time that I can spend at home with my family!

We actually went to visit Santa on Wednesday before Thanksgiving.  The Mall parking lot was already CRAZY!, but there was no line for Santa!!  Jordan was all excited about seeing Santa and asking for Peppa Pig, until we got there!

CYBER MONDAY | AMAZON TRY-ON

For today’s Cyber Monday post, I’m starting with your fave- women’s fashion at affordable prices!   It’s full of cozy sweaters, quality denim, affordable jackets and vests, cute Christmas pajamas and more!  Then, at the bottom of the post, I shared some kids’ gift ideas – things my kids use all the time and really enjoy.

AND, some of my favorite things from Amazon that I use all the time and would make great gifts for your family, friends, or teachers.

But before I get to that, don’t forget to check out the Cyber Monday Amazon Editor’s Picks!

SKINNY JEANS

Cyber Monday Amazon women's fashion

Top XS • Skinny Jeans (under $60) • H-Style Belt

I’ve been super lucky to find two really great pair of jeans on Amazon at super affordable prices. This pair caught my eye and had a ton of great reviews. They are a mid rise skinny jeans with a good bit of stretch and super comfortable. I like them so much I bought them in both this later wash and another darker wash.

They fit true to size and feel even better the longer you wear them. Because I’m short, I had to cuff the hem.

TOP:  This  topic might look basic in the photo, but it feels absolutely amazing on because it’s ultra soft. It has a longer shirt tail him, but you can still tuck it in. It’s on the thicker side, so it will also keep you warm.

H BELT:  My friend Marianna had this on at a girls dinner a couple weeks ago, and we were all drooling over it.  The quality is first rate and it’s even reversible with  tan on one side and black on the other.

SWEATERS

It’s definitely sweater weather around here and we are even expecting a freeze this week.

Cyber Monday Amazon Women's fashion sweater jeans and boots

Winter Pullover S • J Crew Midrise Skinny Jeans • Tan Knee Boots • GG Belt

As soon as winter rolls around, I’m all about that Fair Isle pattern and I liked the navy and ivory combo on this one with the reindeer and trees.

GG Belt :  This was my second belt and I’m also crazy for it. I haven’t been big on belts in the past, but now that I have these two,  I can see how they really complete your outfit. I ended up keeping the 90 cm, 25-31 inch waist size.

Cyber Monday Amazon Fashion Haul striped sweater women

Midrise Skinny Jeans • Stripe Sweater XS • GG Belt

 Of course I had to get this V-neck sweater because I love the gray and white stripes. It’s a thin knit, so great for lots of types of weather, and also inside your office.

Cyber Monday Amazon Fashion Haul

V-Neck Striped Sweater S • J Crew Midrise Skinny Jeans • Faux Fur Infinity Scarf

 More stripes!  This sweater is a little bit thicker with a stretchier fabric.

SCARF :  You guys have been crazy about my faux fur infinity scarf, but mine was several years old and not available anymore. Since then, I’ve been looking high and low for a replacement and finally found this one! It feels light as feathers on and looks so chic!

It would make a fabulous Christmas gift!

Cyber Monday Amazon Fashion Haul sweater and boots (1)

Stripe Sweater w Button Detail • J Crew Midrise Skinny Jeans • Tan Knee Boots

I liked the nautical inspired sweater and the button detail on the shoulders, but it runs small, so definitely size up. I’m wearing XS and it’s tight.

Cyber Monday Amazon women's fashion green sweater skinny jeans and leopard heels

Green Cable Turtleneck • Midrise Skinny Jeans • GG Belt • Bracelet Bag • Leopard Heels

Now is the time to pull out those jewel tones. Especially if your name is Ali-Shaun!  I love the saturated green in this cowl neck sweater and think it looks amazing with the GG belt and cross body bracelet bag.

I’m also wearing the same jeans as the first picture, but in the darker wash.

Cyber Monday Amazon women's fashion colorblock pullover

Colorblock Pullover Turtleneck • J Crew Midrise Skinny Jeans • Similar Grey Booties • Kendra Scott Necklace

Often an oversized sweater is what I’ll opt for because I like that comfy, casual look.  The colors in this sweater would look great with white or black jeans as well.

Lace Sleeve Top • Midrise Skinny Jeans • Skinny Jeans • GG Belt • Leopard Heels

I had date night and Christmas parties in mind when I chose this top. I’m a huge fan of those T-shirts that have special details that dress them up. They feel so comfortable but look a little more sassy! The lace sleeve on this top is really pretty!

DRESSES

For your holiday parties, I found three festive dresses for you, any of which would be absolutely darling!

Cyber Monday Amazon women's fashion (2)

Lace Cocktail Dress • Similar Heels 

 First up, this  lace chic style dress was very comfortable and flattering.   It’s quite stretchy so it’s easy to move and walk in.  I felt especially long and lean in this one and I’m only 5’1.

Cyber Monday Amazon women's fashion (3)

Floral Lace Dress (wine red) Small • Nude Heels

I couldn’t resist showing you a red dress for the holidays. A fit and flair style like this is flattering on everyone and the red is a really pretty hue. It’s fully lined and the band at the waist nips you in for a flattering shape.

I’ll also mention that these nude heels I got on Amazon years ago are still going strong.  I love the classic, pointy toe shape and nude color that goes with everything and gives you legs for days.

Cyber Monday fashion haul black dress

Lace Floral Dress • Leopard Heels

Finally, I was crazy about this black lace overlay dress with the pretty detailing. It’s a little big on me but if you got the right fit I think it would be absolutely stunning!  It looks and feels way more expensive than it is!

ATHLEISURE

I’m super excited about this next part because I finally found a pair of leggings I can rave about and highly recommended to you!

Cyber Monday Fashion haul leggings

 Cold Shoulder Tunic, XS Ankle Leggings w Inner Pocket XS • Leopard Flats • Kendra Scott Necklace

Friends!  I’ve placed so many orders for leggings on Amazon, but it wasn’t until this pair that I finally found a winner!  This pair checks all the boxes from feeling amazing on, quality fabric, nice and thick, opaque and not see-through. And they’re only $18!

I like them as athletic pants and also as leggings to wear with sweaters and tunics. This off-shoulder top is more like a sweatshirt, so it has a casual feel to it. I dressed it up with my leopard pointy toe flats.

Ankle Leggings w Inner Pocket XS • Tank • Top XS • Nike Sneakers • No Show Socks (3,800 positive reviews)

I also wanted you to see how these leggings look with workout tops. My tank is from my first Amazon post in the second photo is the same top as in the very first picture of this post. Here, you can see how long the top is when you wear it untucked.

VESTS

Cyber Monday Amazon women's fashion (1)

Midrise Skinny Jeans • Quilted Vest (red) XS • Sorel Boots •  H-Style Belt • Black Pom Beanie

I’ve been really impressed with the vests and jacket selection on Amazon. I often reach for a quilted vest because I find it keeps me warm enough and it makes my outfit look more stylish.

It comes in about a million colors but I chose the black and this really pretty wine color.

Did you know you could get Sorel boots on Amazon?! And UGGs! This pair of boots is legit! They are waterproof and will keep your feet completely warm and dry, even in the snow! I’m crazy for this gray color.

Even UGGs are on Amazon! I bought the UGG McKay booties recently and I have been wearing these all the time because they’re so so comfortable!

Quilted Vest S • V-Neck Tee (Size Up) • J Crew Midrise Skinny Jeans • GG Belt

Cyber Monday Amazon women's fashion vest and jeans

V-Neck TeeFleece Vest • Ripped Jeans • Similar Booties • GG Belt

This fleece vest was one of my favorites from this post, but the pockets on the inside need to be stitched to the vest so they don’t flop around.   Other than that design flaw, I’m crazy for the softness of this vest!

JACKETS

Cyber Monday Amazon Fashion Haul fleece zip jacket

Full Zip Fleece XS • UGG McKay Booties

I could barely believe this fleece jacket is only $20 with free shipping! It’s nice and fitted with a quality zipper and zip pockets.  There’s lots of colors to choos from, but this light aqua is really pretty.

Cyber Monday Amazon women's packable jacket

Packable Puffer Jacket XS (under $40)

I couldn’t believe how amazing this jacket looked and felt on. It’s a quilted packable puffer jacket with seeming on the front that helps to give you more of an hourglass shape.  It fits TTS and folds up into this little packable pouch that you can throw into your bag.  Isn’t that amazing?!

Cyber Monday Amazon women's packable jacket

Isn’t that wild?!

Cyber Monday Amazon Fashion Haul long puffer coat

Long Puffer Jacket

If you need something more substantial to brave the elements, a longer puffer jacket like this would be perfect for you. I know when I have trouble to New York I  had wished I had a longer coat to help shield the wind and cold.

JACKET FIT : This coat runs big, even the XS was large on me.

Cyber Monday Amazon Fashion Haul

Leopard Faux Fur CoatMidrise Skinny Jeans •  H-Style Belt • Bracelet Bag

For something fun and a little bit EXTRA, this faux fur leopard coat makes a statement!  I think it would be fun to wear to a party or dinner out with the girls.

ACCESSORIES

Cyber Monday Amazon hat gloves and scarf set

Hat/Scarf/Glove Set 

This cable knit scarf, hat and gloves combo would make a great gift! You could gift it as a set or break it apart into three separate gifts!

The hat and gloves are fleece lined so they are very warm and I’m crazy for this vibrant red.

Cyber Monday Amazon David Yurman bracelet

Wire Cuff Bangle $20  Gold Ring size 7

I added a larger cuff bangle to my David Yurman bracelets and I love how the trio looks together.  For only $20, the bracelet looks beautiful and feels heavy.  This is another one that would make a great gift!

Cyber Monday Amazon earrings

Stone Stud Tortoise Shell Earrings • Tortoise Bohemian Hoop Earrings • Tassel Earrings • Rose Quartz Earrings • Red Bohemian Hoop Earrings • White Beaded Earrings

I’m also a huge fan of the earrings I found on Amazon. All of these hearings below are super stylish and extremely lightweight. Plus, you can’t beat the prices! They add that perfect bit of personality to your outfit without breaking the bank!

CHRISTMAS PAJAMAS

It’s definitely time to break out the Christmas pajamas! I found  several cute styles!

Cyber Monday Amazon toddler Christmas pajamas

Gingerbread Cookie Pajama Set

Jordans favorite might be this gingerbread cookies and hot cocoa pair. It’s a size 4 so one too big, but she had to put it on and wear it anyway! I figured we’ll keep it and she’ll grow into it for next year.

The top is a soft cotton in the bottom is a warm cozy fleece with an elastic waist band.

Baked French Toast 13

Let It Snow Pajamas

The adorable Let It Show pajamas come in sizes for every member of your family. One of my favorite traditions is dressing up in our Christmas pajamas and going to look at Christmas lights in the car while sipping hot cocoa.  That is definitely still on my Christmas list!

Cyber Monday Amazon women Christmas pajamas

Reindeer PJ Set XS

These pajamas and soft and lightweight and come in more patterns.  I dig the stripes and reindeer the best though!

Cyber Monday Amazon women's Christmas pajamas

Thermal PJs • Pink Beanie

Oh my gosh, how fun are these?! Especially when you pair a pink beanie with them?!

Thermal PJs • Red Thermal Pajama Set

I couldn’t resist the mama and toddler thermal pajama set!  Both of these patterns are so cute and they were even softer after I washed them.

Cyber Monday Amazon Kids pajamas

Toddler Girl Pajamas Set

Although these aren’t Christmas theme, I was so impressed with the quality and softness of these jammies.  And the floral print with contrasting elastic sleeve and ankle is darling!

Cyber Monday Amazon UGG slippers

UGG Scuffett Slippers • UGG Ansley Slippers

For a more substantial and super warm slipper, I tried out the two UGG pair above.  The Scuffett are awesome because they slip on and off easily, and the furry part on the top is a soft, fun detail.

The Ansley slippers are a huge hit, keeping your feet warm and toasty and you can even wear them indoors and out.  I felt they ran small and wish I had sized up.

I saw some reviews that felt these weren’t real UGGS, but the UGGS I got are legit.

TODDLER GIFTS

TODDLER GIFTS.1

My daughter is 2, almost 3 and loves these toys.  She recently outgrew the ladder slide, but everything else is going strong!

Ice Cream Cart • Jordan loves serving ice cream to us all day long.  She can drive the cart around and add different flavors and toppings with the magnetic scoop.  It also has cards with playful phrases that introduce colors and numbers and instructions.  She’s so funny how she wants me to sit on the opposite side and take my order through the window!

Pretend Makeup • Little girls like to mimic their mamas and in the morning when I would put my makeup on, Jordan would want to play with my makeup too.  I bought her this set, hoping that would satisfy her and keep her out of mine, and it did!  I keep this realistic play set in it’s pouch in the same drawer as my makeup and she’ll put hers on while I’m doing mine.

Step Stool • I only wish I had gotten this step stool earlier!  It’s sturdy with grips on the steps to keep little feet secure.  Now Jordan can help me prepare meals in the kitchen and she also loves to help do dishes.

Toddler Slide •  We got this slide last year for Christmas and it lived in our living room almost all year!  She recently got too big for it, but I’d definitely say we got our money’s worth.  She loved this little slide!

My Pal Violet • This was a gift from Aunt Jessica a couple years ago and Jordan still plays with it.  It’s interactive and can also sing and light up.

Ride On Push Car • This car is great because you can go for a walk and push it while you’re standing up, so it saves your back.  It has a little belt buckle and Jordan likes to feel like she’s driving!

Tea Set & Basket • She’s very into tea parties right now and all the stuffed animals are usually invited to partake.  How cute is this set that comes with a gingham lined basket, plates and flatware?!

iPad Case • If your child has or uses your tablet, a sturdy case is a must.  We have one like this and Jordan can easily carry it around and prop it up on a table to watch.

MY SON’S FAVES

My son is 8 and he’s super into books (see his recommendations, and also recently started playing Monopoly and Clue with us.  It’s really fun to play these games as a family!

MY AMAZON FAVES

As for me, y’all know I swear by my coffee/tea warmer, efficient packing cubes, the softest sheets of all time, and my favorite purchase of 2018!!

I hope this post was helpful for you!  I’ll have a live try-on up on Stories later if you want to check it out!

Have a great week friends!

    Why do only some of your pics have icon for Pinterest saves? I love your style and have a board dedicated to just your style. It is so easy to just hit the icon and save. With most things lately have to go into your general pinterest link and find what I want to save from the day’s showing.

      Hi Karen, I didn’t realize it was doing that! It should give you the pinterest icon on all of them, so let me look at that. Thanks for letting me know!

    A note on the Ugg slippers- I purchased a similar Ugg loafer style slipper this year during the NAS. I also thought i needed to size up, but don’t. Mine were REALLY snug at first but once you wear them a bit the fur conforms to your foot and now the are perfect. My feet get like ice and these are the best slippers I’ve ever owned.

    I am so loving that green sweater! That color is GORGE on you and I think it’s going to have to be mine!

    Also, I adore you, but the ongoing promotion of blatantly counterfeit items is so beneath you!? It’s at best irresponsible, and at worst, supporting an activity that is illegal. You are so much better than that! Especially as someone who I know values intellectual property as a content creator! Just something to think about. Xo

    I love your blog, but don’t usually comment. But I just had to let you know how one of your Amazon finds helped me out. On a previous Amazon post, you showed a black lace cocktail dress with elbow length sleeves. I was looking for a dress for the office Christmas party, and this looked perfect. The sizing didn’t work on that one, but through that link I found two similar dresses. I ordered and liked them so much I’m keeping BOTH of them. This recommendation comes from someone who doesn’t really enjoy clothes shopping or dressing up. So THANK YOU for helping this 50-year-old mama find a dress that will make me feel beautiful this weekend. 🙂

    For your reference in case you want to try them for your readers, they are MISSMAY Women’s Vintage Full Lace Contrast Flare Sleeve and MISSMAY Women’s Vintage Floral Lace Front Zipper 3/4 Sleeve Elegant Swing Dress. Great quality for less than $40.

      Tanya, I love hearing that! I totally understand how not enjoyable shopping can be, but when you find that perfect thing at a great price, it feels great! Thanks for sharing your find! I’d love to see you in your dress!
