Let me just start by saying that Amazon is like my second boyfriend! (No I don’t have a “first” boyfriend, second just sounds better lol.) Amazon can cook, keep you entertained, and whenever you need something, it’ll be waiting at your doorstep in 48 hours or less! All jokes aside, Amazon, put in the simplest of terms, is LIT.
I thought it would be fun to share the last 10 things I purchased from Amazon because I’ve been really enjoying everything I’ve gotten over the past few months. Some of these items I’ve been buying for years and others are newfound favorites, so let’s just jump right in!
Fall is officially here! The season for chunky knit sweaters, hearty crockpot meals, and pumpkin-flavored everything (Trader Joes is really killin’ it in this department btw) is finally upon us! Out of all the seasons, fall is hands down my absolute favorite. When you live in Texas and the weather is constantly over 100 degrees, Summer can just feel a littleeee too long, so forgive me if I can’t contain my excitement, its just been a long time coming in my book!
Just because fall has made its appearance doesn’t necessarily mean we all of a sudden have to trade in our cut-off shorts and sandals for chunky scarves and riding boots, though. I personally don’t have the funds to buy myself a bunch of new outfits, so that means taking some of my warm weather basics and re-working them into my fall wardrobe.
Hey, guys! I’m back with another edition of my “What’s on Sale” series! Not to toot my own horn, but I’m quite the expert when it comes to finding the best deals. Part of the reason I started this blog was to share all my amazing finds with you guys (and maybe to stop annoying all my friends who could care less haha). My first “What’s on Sale” post also featured some amazing deals from Free People, and though it wasn’t really in the plan to highlight the same brand again, these discounts are so good that I would be doing you a disservice not to share, so here we are my friends!
Free People is currently having their end of summer clearance sale, which means select styles online and in-store are 50% off. But wait, there’s more! They also have select sale items marked down an additional 25% (online only). If you’re like me and are obsessed with Free People but think it’s rather pricey, then these sales are the answer to your prayers. This promotion is only running until Sunday 8/27, so now’s your chance to stock up on all their amazing summer clothing before they start making room for their Fall collections.
Hi guys! By the time you’re reading this I’ll be sitting on a plane headed to Palm Springs! Even though I’ll only be there for a few days, this trip definitely fueled my shopping addiction. I kept finding myself saying, “this would be great for Palm Springs” so often, I even tried to rush order a pineapple floatie straight to the house I’m staying at (I say tried because I think the address doesn’t allow for guests to send packages or Amazon just wasn’t havin’ it).
Needless to say, this trip definitely sparked my interest to find the perfect swimsuit cover up, and boy did I.
T-Shirt Dress (sold out, similar) // Denim Jacket (sold out, similar) // Fringe Purse // Strappy Sandals
I keep saying this, but I’ve been so impressed by Forever 21 lately! Everything they carry right now is so on-trend, not to mention highly affordable. I mean the whole store is practically denim skirts, off-the-shoulder shirts, and strappy sandals galore!
I will say, you really need to be strategic about what you’re going to buy at Forever 21. As I’m pretty sure you all know from prior experiences, some pieces are amazing quality and fit great, and some can be a major letdown. I’ve shopped at Forever 21 for so many years now that I can just tell by looking at something if it’s good quality or if it will only last a few wears. If you’re not so confident in your ability to separate the good from the bad, my friend Julia (also a F21 aficionado) has an amazing video on her YouTube channel where she spills the tea on all the best Forever 21 shopping hacks, you have to check it out!
