New Amazon Fashion Haul & Holiday Hosting

Hi friend! Yay for Friday! We have a few things on the agenda- all good things.  A birthday party and helping box up toys for Ceci’s toy drive for Texas Children’s hospital.  Everyone has been so generous in giving, it warms my mama heart.

I’ve also gotten thank you notes from several teachers that received my Tuesday Giving classroom donations.  I know those things will really brighten the kids’ and teachers’ days.

If you missed it this week, I shared a new December Loves Giveaway.  I’ll pick one winner from my blog subscribers and one winner that likes all my December Instagram posts.  If you win, you can choose to have all of that month’s Loves, or the cash equivalent!  Most people choose the cash! 😉

Did you see the recap of our 2022 Favorite Things Party?  It was such a good time and everyone brought so many good things!

Our Christmas break starts in just one week!  I know there will be lots of festive things going on, but also, several hours of doing nothing, just  binge watching on the couch! And that’s A-ok with me!

I shared my Tuesday Goodies on Stories, but you can always find them on my blog here.  You can catch all my Amazon livestreams here.

AMAZON FASHION FAVES

For Size Reference: I’m a shorty (5’1) and petite, weighing about 110.  I typically wear size 0p/25 jeans, XS or XSP in tops and dresses.  Lots of times the smallest size on Amazon is a Small, so in that case, that’s what I ordered.

I’m soooo glad I finally pair a faux leather leggings that I can actually get into without straining my body or nearly ripping the leggings! This pair goes on much easier than other brands I’ve tried and looks so good! They also feel like they are well made and will last.  They have a comfortable high waist, which I really appreciate.  I just can’t do mid-rise anymore.

I also sized up in the sweater to make it more tunic length and then pulled the shoulder to one side. I like the stitching pattern on this sweater and how the sleeves have a diamond pattern.

Black Sweater, Leggings, Booties

Black on black is so chic and this sweater is made to be worn off shoulder.  It has a horizontal stitch pattern and banded waist.

I found a few cute Christmas sweatshirts too.  They aren’t as soft as I hoped and on the thinner side, but they sure are cute!  If you have trouble reading the message backwards in the mirror, it says Merry, Merry, Merry;)

I really liked how this sweater looked and felt on, plus the peachy pink is really pretty.  It has a stretchiness to it with a loose cowl neck that has the same ribbed knit detail as the sleeve.  It’s also got a side slit and slightly hi/low hem.

Oh man, time for the cozy teddy bear sherpa fleece!  Isn’t this colorblock style fun?! The white top part is mimicked at the pocket, a sweet detail. It also has drawstring cords to cinch the waist if you want to.

Oh man, I tried on this sweater and really liked it – then when I went to link it, I realized it was part of a set!  It actually comes with a skirt, but I don’t think I got the skirt??!! I’m not sure what happened, but the sweater is too cute, so I’m showing it to you anyway! It’s on the shorter side, but not cropped.  It’s got a really soft feel and seems way more expensive than it is.

This crop puffer vest is SO CUTE, but somehow I ended up with a large.  I can’t wait to return it for my true size. It zips up the front and has the drawstring cinch cord.

It comes in several colors and I wouldn’t mind ordering a few!

These leggings are my Amazon Essentials and to my surprise, are a mid rise.  I’m surprised because I’m usually most comfortable in high rise now, but these felt really good on and I didn’t even realize they were mid rise until I checked the description in the website.

They are the “Active Sculpt” with moisture wicking to keep you cool during workouts. They’re squat proof and easy to move in, plus they have a rainbow of colors to choose from.  And even then, I usually still opt for black. What about you?

The tunic sweater has a springy quality, side slit and cowl neck.  The ribbed detail at the chest, hem and wrist give it a sporty vibe.

This style of pullover is a go-to when it gets chilly.  It’s not super thick, so better for mild temps, but it’s so cute with the combo of soft fleece and quilted upper.  You can snap the neck closed if it’s windy or you need more protection, otherwise, I usually wear it open.

DRESSES & JUMPSUITS

Black Jumpsuit, Heels

JumpsuitHeels

Y’all! I found some DARLING jumpsuits and dresses, just in time for your holiday parties.

I’m sure this jumpsuit is meant to be short in the length, but I like where it’s hitting my ankle for us shorter gals.  The top is so sweet with the perfect v-neck and flirty flutter sleeves.  It also comes with the coordinating tie belt.

This jumpsuit zips up the back and fits like a glove, TTS.

Asymmetrical Dress

And this cocktail dress is good too!  It’s a silky little one shoulder number that slips over your head.  The rusching at the skirt is very figure flattering.  It came with a tie belt that I thought competed with the asymmetric drape so I left it off.  But, I do think a skinny belt with an embellished buckle would be a pretty accent.

Champagne Dress

This gorgeous champagne colored dress has that same one shoulder, but with drama at the opposite shoulder with the exaggerated drape.  I like the artful ruching, but unfortunately my pics don’t do it justice because it’s too big.

I think in the right size, this dress could be amazing and very elegant.  It’s by Cupshe, the same people that make those popular swimsuits, which makes sense because they know how to use fabric to flatter a woman’s body.

I guess I got on the one shoulder train because I’m loving this velvet dress too.  The part with the shoulder has a sassy cutout.  This dress also feels incredible on, and because it’s a velvet material, it feels appropriate for winter.

For a more conservative dress option, this red plaid is a good option.  It would be great for a teacher or work lunch party.

SHOES & ACCESSORIES

Red Flats

Bow Flats

How darling are these flats with the bow tie?! If you prefer flats or can’t handle heels, these are just so sweet!  Fit TTS.

Booties

I’ve been loving these short faux fur boots.  They are similar to UGGs, but without the high price tag.  Of course, I will say my real UGGs are higher quality, but I’ve worn these several times already and they’ve done just fine.

They only come in whole sizes, so size down if you’re in between.

Flower Ring

We took Rhonda out to lunch this week to celebrate her birthday and I spotted Marianna wearing this ring.  Guess where it’s from?! Yep, Amazon!
