AMAZON PRIME DAY SNEAK PREVIEW
Remember when Shannon and I visited the Amazon showroom last month in New York? While I was there, I got to preview some of the Prime Day sales and took photos of the things you’d like best.
French Connection Wrap Dress • save up to 30%
This little wrap dress is a ‘wear now’ fave with a bold red background and pretty floral pattern. It’s wrap style, which is universally flattering and has a fun flutter sleeve. This dress also comes in a long maxi style. I was hurrying to take these pics, which is why I’ve still got my bodysuit on underneath. 😉 .
French Connection Maxi Dress • save up to 30%
Look who I ran into! Jean Wang of Extra Petite! I admit I was fan girling a bit because I’ve followed her for years and always respected her work as a blogger. Specializing in petites, she’s very thorough in her sizing descriptions. And her family is adorable!
We both gravitated towards this gorgeous maxi dress and it fit perfectly! It’s also wrap style and I love the mixed floral print.
White Mermaid Dress • save up to 30%
If you need a fancier dress, this white off shoulder dress was so gorgeous, if a bit big on me. It would be perfect for a summer party or to a Gala or other dressy event. It’s fully lined and beautifully crafted.
Striped Dress • save up to 30%
Back in the land of casual styles, this dress looks way better on than on the hanger. It’s appropriate for both work and play and made with a comfortable cotton blend.
You’ll love the easy breeziness of this sleeveless dress. It’s nice and lightweight and skims the body perfectly. I didn’t see the palm print online, but it’s available in five solid colors and stripes.
I liked the lighter wash and style on these mid-rise jeans. Amazon has tons of Levi’s to choose from, but this particular pair features a ‘chewed’ hem and slightly ripped knee.
You can’t go wrong with Adidas workout gear. I like the cut and style of their tanks and these leggings are classic with the three white stripes down the side.
You’ll love these cozy jammies by Splendid. They’re menswear inspired with the classic button down shirt style and piping trim, but so soft on your skin. They come in several colors and the stripe ones are so fun!
Oh my goodness! Take me back to that snuggly baby stage! Amazon Fashion & Hanna Andersson had a baby and named it Moon and Back. It features the sweetest, softest baby sleepwear, dayware, blankets and teething bandanas.
The two-piece pajama sets go up to size 5T. I’m definitely getting Jordan a pair!
BEST OF AMAZON FASHION
I’ve been searching Amazon to bring you the best women’s fashion for a year now. In that time I’ve found some “oh, hell no’s!” but also some “you definitely need this!” YOU guys have shown up for every post and always let me know what you like best.
Based on your feedback, below are the Top Amazon Fashion Faves of the year and everything is still available on PRIME and almost everything is UNDER $50!
These casual raw edge hem jean shorts are one of the most worn Amazon items I own. They’re a high rise, light wash and go with everything. They aren’t too short either!
Fit : I’m wearing size 25
I’ve been searching forever for a good pair of paper bag shorts I could recommend and finally found this pair. They are the most flattering (from the front and back) I’ve found and a great quality. The length is just right, they’re comfortable, and the pockets are a bonus!
The blouse is versatile for work to weekend and I liked the trim on the sleeve as a fun detail. I could see dressing up this outfit for a night out with black heels and a statement necklace or wearing it casually on the weekend with sandals.
Shorts Fit : I’m wearing a size Small
Top Fit : I’m wearing a size XS
I had such good luck with my Amazon cutoff jean shorts that I went looking for another style. I’m crazy for this darker hue, high waisted pair with a raw edge hem and slight distressing. They have a good bit of stretch to them and also aren’t so short that your booty’s hanging out.
Shorts Fit : Wearing size Small – I would have preferred an XS
BEST AMAZON TOPS
Amazon’s graphic tees are on point, but the runaway winner this year is the Good Vibes tank. It runs big, but nothing a front knot can’t fix!
How cute is this eyelash tee?! I wore it traveling to LA and got tons of compliments on it.
FIT: TTS, wearing size XS
This gorgeous white crochet that is fully lined through the body with a stretchy white underlay. The bell sleeves are so feminine and pretty. It also comes in pink and navy and a short sleeve version.
FIT: TTS, wearing XS.
I love this top so much I bought it in both the black and the white, but only the black arrived so far. It’s by Ella Moon, one of my favorite brands on Amazon. You can always trust them for on-trend pieces and good quality, but they are on the pricier side.
This top is worth it though – it works for day to night, from a casual lunch to a night out.
Top Fit : Wearing size XS
I couldn’t remember when I first got it weather this was supposed to be worn on or off the shoulder, but it seems both work. I went back and looked and the model has it on the shoulders.
The top is 100% cotton with quality embroidery and the crochet detail looks expensive.
TOP FIT : I’m wearing size XS
This was one of the summer’s most popular tops! It’s so cute with the stripes, embroidery and tassels!
Fit : Size up because it runs small.
I’ve got Valentine’s Day on the brain with this Love Tee, but it’s appropriate all year long.
TOP FIT : I’m wearing size Small
It’s just the kind of thing that you can dress up for work or wear casually on the weekends. It’s extra cool because the sleeves are a soft t-shirt material and the front is a blouse material. The embroidery is well done and it has roll tab sleeves. I feel like this is one you’ll want to buy in more than one color!
TOP FIT : Runs slightly small, I’m wearing a Small.
I’m crazy for this leopard pullover! It’s on the thinner side, so perfect for chilly summer nights.
The colors are gorgeous together and it looks very ‘Madewell’ without the price! I’m wearing a stretchy spaghetti strap camisole underneath so no skin shows through the little dots. Hurry on this one, the sizes are going fast!
TOP FIT : I’m wearing size XS
BEST OF AMAZON OUTERWEAR
This one one of the biggest sellers last Fall. It’s so cozy and comes in a ton of colors.
Come Fall and Winter, you’ll definitely want to get your hands of this cozy, soft teddy bear pullover. It’s the prettiest shade of pink with a quarter zip and very warm!
TOP FIT: Runs big, I’m wearing size X-Small
This plaid vest says Fall for sure, but the red/black will welcome the holidays.
This photo was one of the most liked on my Instagram last year! The entire outfit is so good- from the JCrew Mercantile brand on Amazon.
We all love a good vest and this herringbone style looks so expensive, but it isn’t!
Of all the puffer colors, this pretty pink is the one I gravitated to. The shade is gorgeous.
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?!
Jacket Fit : TTS, wearing size XS
BEST AMAZON JEANS
My favorite white jeans from last year sold out, so I’ve been on the hunt for a new affordable pair to recommend. These white Levi’s hit all the marks for a great white jean – opaque!!, not at all see through, not a jegging!, short pockets that don’t hang low or stand out, and a hint of stretch. They have a raw edge hem so you can easily snip them to your desired length and one slightly ripped right knee for a little edginess.
JEANS FIT : The jeans fit TTS. My normal size is 25, but they were out of those at the time, so I’m in a 26.
You can never have enough basic t-shirts, in you closet and this one is a great weight, perfect v-neck with stretch. It comes in a ton of colors and also stripes and they’re 2 for $20!
TOP FIT: It’s a ‘fitted fit, I’m wearing size X-Small, my true size
Speaking of jeans, grey jeans do not get enough attention. I love this hue, especially in summer! They’re not as precious as your white jeans (hiding spills and dirt way better), and they’re also not as severe as black jeans- being lighter in color. Also, they play well with so many other colors in your wardrobe from white, pink, yellow to blues and even brown and black.
This pair is from Amazon house brand, Daily Ritual, and I’ve come to know and trust this line. They jeans are only $35 and worth it!
Jeans Fit : TTS, wearing Size 25
Here’s a better look at the JCrew Mercantile jeans you saw in the front porch photo. They are a comfortable mid-rise and come in tons of colors.
Jeans Fit : TTS
BEST OF AMAZON SCARVES
Amazon has a great selection of scarves and you’ll find the most popular color combos here.
BEST OF AMAZON DRESSES
You guys! This dress is really special! It looks and feel so expensive on, but it’s only $29 with Prime shipping! The allover floral print makes a statement and will definitely turn heads. The bodice wraps closed with a tie belt and the skirt is fully lined.
Dress Fit : Wearing size Small
Y’all, please get this dress! You’ll think you got it at Nordstrom for the quality & fit! It’s fully lined to the knee, has beautiful crochet detail throughout and fits like a dream. The style is so perfect for weddings, date night, parties, church and more. I have it in pink and that one is gorgeous too.
Dress Fit : Wearing size X-Small
Isn’t this dress gorgeous?! It’s got a sexy halter neckline perfect for showing off your shoulders. The crochet overlay is really pretty and it’s fully lined. I love how a bit of the crochet hangs below the lining to show it off above the knee. It’s absolutely stunning in person and it actually makes me want the white one now too!
FIT: TTS, wearing size XS
Oh wowza, how good is this little palm print dress?! But the palm print is in a classy deep green and white combo and the fit and cut is superb! I wouldn’t have been surprised if you would’ve told me it was from a department store! It has a darling deep v in the back and I wore this backless bra with it.
I felt so good in this dress, and it’s our little secret that it’s under $30!
Oh how I love a white dress for summer! This one is a fantastic quality and fully lined. It’s swingy goodness and can be worn casual with flats or dressier with heels and accessories. A long pendant necklace would look so good with this dress.
Dress Fit : Wearing size Small
I espeically like the colors and contrasting stripe pattern on this dress. The bodice is lined and the spaghetti straps are adjustable. This is the “light coffee” color, but it comes in many colors and prints.
Dress Fit : wearing size Small
The eighties called with this tie dye maxi! I can’t remember the last time I wore tie dye, but I love it in this maxi! It has a nice, open neckline, cuffed short sleeves, pockets and a slit on the side.
Dress Fit : I’m wearing size XS with wedges and didn’t have to alter the length.
I wasn’t sure what to think about a skirt/top set like this. I was worried it would be belly baring, but it fits together just perfectly to create a dress-like look. I love the pattern and think it looks super cute for a summer day!
Set Fit : Wearing size 2
You can also wear the pieces as separates so you get more bang for your buck!
The relaxed style of this dress makes it so easy to wear. It feels silky soft and very lightweight, but not sheer. The color is a very pretty deep teal and even though it’s called ‘polka dot’ the pattern is more pebble shape. Again, this one comes in several colors and also a tank style, that I just ordered.
I’m still not over palm print, especially when it comes in an easy-to-wear shift dress like this. It’s lined, slightly longer in the back, and feels nice and breezy.
Dress Fit : I’m wearing size Small
Took this skirt for a stroll in NYC and felt great in it!
GET THIS DRESS!! This short sleeve maxi dress is beyond soft and comfortable, not to mention flattering. The side slit makes it easy to walk in. I was happily surprised that the length didn’t need any alterations.

I was dying to try this baby doll dress on because it reminded me so much of the Free People dresses that are so boho chic, but those run so big. I absolutely loved this on! It’s 95% cotton and fully lined on the bottom (not the top). I’d probably wear a black bra with it and the eyelet is so small you don’t need to layer a cami underneath, but you could if that makes you more comfortable.
It has a flirty, flare skirt and flared sleeves at the elbow. You can wear this now with sandals and in the Fall, bring out the booties!
FIT: relaxed fit, wearing size Small and it’s on the short side. I will machine wash and hang dry so it doesn’t shrink.
You’ll love the forgiving fit of this button front dress and it comes in whatever color you like best!
There’s 3,100 positive reviews on this gorgeous maxi dress and I’m adding another 5 star rating! It’s so beautiful and flowy and buttons all the way down. You can leave a few bottom buttons undone to show a bit more leg. It’s not sheer or see through at all.
FIT: TTS, wearing size XS. On the model, it’s more of a midi fit. But on me (5’1) it fits right to the floor and I could wear it with heels without having to alter it.
BEST AMAZON GOWNS
You might not think of Amazon first if you have a black tie event, wedding or Gala to attend, but they do have fabulous gowns at unbelievable prices. And when you’re only going to wear a dress once, you don’t want to spend a lot of money on it!
This dress is the one my friend Angela wore to our Gala and she was absolutely stunning in it! When I shared it on Stories, y’all loved it, so I definitely wanted to share it here too. This dress is a nice, thick, material with a good bit of stretch so you can move in it. It’s an elegant style, but also sexy with the mermaid style, side slit and off shoulder/one sleeve detail.
DRESS FIT : Wearing size 2 and the length was altered 1.5 inches and Angela was wearing 3 1/2 inch heels.
Below is my gorgeous friend Angela in it. You will not believe this dress is under $30!
If you need a long gown for a fancy event, wedding or gala, give this one a try! It’s obviously too long on me, but I bet it could be altered. The fabric felt silky smooth on and I loved the asymmetric neck. The deep V back is also gorgeous! You can wear a regular bra with it, if you pull the back down a bit. It’s gotten over 1,000 positive reviews and is only $39 with FREE prime shipping!
Dress Fit : This dress runs small, I’m in a Small and it fits everywhere but the length.
BEST OF ROMPERS/JUMPSUITS
I LOVE THIS ROMPER! So much that I got it in the stripes too. It’s perfectly lightweight for summer with tank sleeves, a scoop neck, and pockets. The elastic hem at the ankles is cute too.
Jumpsuit Fit : I’m wearing size Small
GET THIS ROMPER!! There are no hesitations on this romper, it’s really good! It’s the same brand and style as the pants romper I shared recently, but in shorts version. The material is on the thicker side which I appreciate since so many shorts rompers tend to be thin. It has a comfortable, elastic drawstring waist with pockets. You’ll be sure to find me running errands or sitting for hours at a time at my computer in this one!
Romper Fit : Wearing size X-Small
I had to have this jumpsuit in another color (opting for stripes this time) because I love it so much! I wore the solid black one on the plane to NYC and was so comfy in it. It’s nice and lightweight and I’m crazy for the style, with pockets!
Oooh, and this short sleeve jumpsuit is awesome! You will be ultra comfortable in it – it’s pajama soft – and the style is so forgiving. And bonus – pockets!
Jumpsuit Fit : Wearing size Small
BEST AMAZON ACTIVEWEAR
I’m sooo happy to see my favorite Under Armour sports bras on Amazon! I usually had to go to Acadamy to get them, but I love that I can just add them to my Amazon cart! These are what I always were for low impact workouts. They last forever and the cut is really nice.
BRA FIT : I’m wearing size Medium
You’ll probably remember this leggings from this post. They are the best leggings I’ve found on Amazon and they’ve been in full rotation this winter. They feel amazing on, quality fabric, nice and thick, opaque and not see-through. And they’re only $18!
And for throwing over your sports bra, this pullover with a cowl neck was a hit! It comes in several color combos and even stripes!
BEST AMAZON SWIM
If you haven’t checked out the swimwear selection on Amazon, you’re missing out! There are so many great styles!
How pretty is this crochet swimsuit?! Y’all will not believe how good this swimsuit is for under $25! It’s a dead ringer for the Becca swimsuit but it’s from Amazon. I wore mine already and got lots of compliments on it! It also comes in a sassy black!
FIT: Runs small, wearing size Small
I’m all about the orange colorblock shades in this one. It criss crosses at the top and ties at the waist.
The color of this swimsuit is gorgeous in person- a striking blue that’s almost teal. It has a deep V in the front that’s super sassy, but the ruffles keep it on the sweet side.
Swimsuit Fit : I’m wearing size Small
This is one of the first swimsuits I ever ordered from Amazon and it’s still going strong! I’m crazy for the fun white, orange and aqua color combo and the scallop pattern. It’s totally kid friendly, but still super cute. The back has an adorable double criss cross strap and the bottom isn’t too cheeky.
FIT: Runs small, wearing size Small
See! Isn’t this suit darling?! It’s a mix of stripes up top and they’re actually dark green to coordinate with the floral patterned bottoms. The top zips up in the upper back and then ties at the lower back, so the sides are exposed. It’s definitely a keeper! And only $29!
SUIT FIT: I’m wearing size Small (USA 4/6)
Now this suit is a winner!! It’s incredibly comfortable with ruched sides and ‘tummy control’ to help camouflage any middle areas you might feel self conscious about. They neckline is open, without being too revealing. They back is also darling with a criss cross tie detail. I like it so much, I bought it in two colors!
Swimsuit Fit : I’m wearing size XS
I’m a huge fan of a rash guard so I was definitely intrigued when I saw this swimsuit. I don’t think I’ve ever had a short sleeve suit but I actually love this one!
The pattern is really fun and different and even though it’s short sleeve and modestly cut on the thighs, I didn’t feel frumpy in it. I think that’s partially due to the way the pattern accentuates your figure. You can wear the zipper more open if you want to, but I like how it looks zipped up.
FIT : Wearing size Small
This suit is so, so cute and luckily arrived just in time for our Spring Break trip to JW Marriott San Antonio. The palm print is darling as is the little ruffle along the bust and ladder stitching detail.
Swimsuit Fit : Wearing size Small
I’m sooo smitten with this ruffled bikini! I often wear a one-piece, but I’m really excited to wear this two-piece. The ruffled top looks great on smaller chested women, but it wasn’t overwhelming a larger chest either. You can wear the top on or off the shoulder and it looks great both ways. I also love the navy color! It looks sophisticated!
Swimsuit Fit : Wearing size Small in both the top and bottom. I usually wear a Medium top, but the Medium was too big on me.
This crochet cover up was a hit too, I have so many messages from y’all saying you got this and love it too!
The self tanner I swear by! I’ve used it all summer long to get a dark, natural looking color. It sprays on and is easy to wipe on. I recommend using a mit for more even application and so you don’t stain your hands. The color goes on right away so you can see where you’re applying it, then gradually develops over the next 3-4 hours.
BEST AMAZON PJS
Gimme all the cute, cozy pajamas!
I couldn’t leave out pajamas and this shirt and shorts pair is a winner! They are soft and cozy and not too revealing. Although they come in lots of colors and styles, I like this white with black polka dots and pink trim. The shorts have a pink ribbon tie and elastic waist.
FIT: TTS, wearing size XS
OMG! Story of my life! Can any of you relate?! These pajamas come in a set with the short and tee. The tee is a bit cropped and the shorts have an elastic waist with a tie. They come in other styles too!
PJ FIT: I’m wearing size X-Small
I can’t believe I haven’t shown you these slippers before! They happily arrived on the day of our Favorite Things party, so I got to wear them that night! At first, I thought they were too small, but I’m glad I kept them because they stretched a little with wear and now they’re perfect! They come in several colors for under $20! I’m wearing them right now! 🙂
BEST AMAZON EARRINGS
Why pay more?! These fun earrings add a punch of personality to your outfit, but won’t break the bank.
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 one that would make a great gift!
BEST AMAZON BELT
You might have seen in my latest Nordstrom & Target dressing room post, this double circle belt from Amazon. I love how simple it is, yet it adds that extra layer of interest to your outfit. It’s 1 1/4 inch thick, comes in XS – L and several colors.
BEST AMAZON HAT
Clearly, you need this hat! I kid, kind of;) It’s the best $16 you’ll ever spend on a hat. It’s the cutest shape, adjustable to fit your head, helps block the sun, looks great on everyone and comes in a ton of colors. I have the Khaki and Black.
BEST AMAZON BAGS
BEST AMAZON SHOES
Aside from my slippers, I haven’t tried many Amazon shoes. These two I recommend.
I was skeptical about these bowtie sandals, but I’m truly smitten with them! I love the color, rockstud detail and darling bow. They’re a rubber material, which make them especially perfect for wearing to the pool or waterpark.
I think these would make a fun gift too, for under $20!
Sandals Fit : My true size was slightly large on me (the strap was too wide/loose), so I’ll be returning them for a size down.
And what about those rockstud sandals?! I’m 100% smitten! They are super cute on and come in tons of colors. They fit is TTS.
Phew! That was a lot! If you made it this far, I commend you! Thank you so much for being here and sharing Amazon Prime Day with me! I can’t wait to hear what you scored!
Have a fantastic day!
