This 4th of July my husband and I are traveling to one of our favorite places, Smith Lake. When we lived in Birmingham, Smith Lake was an every weekend kind of thing. Our friends have a big, beautiful home on the lake and its the perfect place for a nice, relaxing weekend. We are so excited to spend one of our favorite holidays with some of our favorite people at our favorite place.

The 4th of July is my second favorite holiday, seriously. First off, it’s in summer and I loveeeeee summer. Beyond the fact that this holiday is in summer, its just a relaxing, fun holiday. Its a day full of eating all the food, drinking the drinks and fireworks, I mean what else can you ask for?

One of my favorite trends this year is clothes with star patterns and 4th of July is the perfect time to pull out all of the cute pieces with star prints. In addition to star prints this 4th of July weekend you can expect to see me in lots of high waisted jean shorts, bodysuits and all of the swimsuits. Okay, now let’s talk about all of the cute things I am packing for the 4th of July.

Amazon Fashion Finds: Summer 2019

Amazon Fashion Finds: Summer 2019

Amazon Prime is my BFF, if you follow me on Instagram you know this to be very true. Most people think about Amazon as a place to buy last-minute presents and affordable home supplies, but I am a huge fan of their fashion department. In fact, this summer, a good portion of my wardrobe is Amazon Fashion finds.

Maybe I shouldn’t, but I use Amazon multiple times a week, its just so easy! And there are so many great things at great prices. I order clothes, beauty products, home goods and so much more all from the comfort of my home. I mean, affordable prices and free 2-day shipping with Amazon Prime? Yes, please!

This past weekend, we were in Chicago visiting my husband’s brother and one night we were headed out for dinner and I looked at myself and thought, ” I did it “. What did I do? My entire outfit, EVERYTHING, was from Amazon. Isn’t Amazon the best?

Amazon is such a great spot to buy clothing and accessories from but it also can be somewhat tricky. Not only does Amazon carry an insane amount of products but some of the products are umm, not the best. So finding Amazon fashion items worth sharing can be somewhat of a task.

I’ve been sharing a ton of my favorite Amazon fashion finds on my Instagram so I thought I would summarize all of my favorites into one simple post. I’ve spent the so much time searching every corner of Amazon for the best summer fashion items under $50 that are perfect for summer.

Amazon Fashion Finds: Summer Edition

I have rounded up all of my favorite Amazon fashion finds for summer under $50, but keep in mind that many of these items are under $20. These items will guarnatee that you look cute even when it feels like the devils playground outside.

With every new season, I always feel the urge to update my wardrobe. Summer is hands down my favorite season so I really have the urge to buy all the things for the warmer temps. I love to use Amazon as a way to supplement my wardrobe. I will pair an amazon find, like a new pair of shoes or a cute top, with a more expensive staple to create a brand new look.

If you enjoy this post or are looking for something specific let me know in the comments. Happy shopping, my friends!

May Top Ten – The Most Popular Items On Hat On The Map

Tomorrow is June, how did that happen? 2019 is flying by! Now that May is over I am back for another monthly round up of the most popular items on my blog. I love these posts because I get to look back on the month and take a deep dive into what items you guys really loved.

To no surprise, my top retailer for the month of May was once again Amazon. I love amazon, you love amazon, we all love amazon. Amazon is always going to be a top seller. But that certainly doesn’t mean that I will stop sharing my favorite items from places like Nordstrom, Abercrombie, American Eagle and Old Navy!

This past month I have shared a ton of beach style and vacation outfits. From the looks of my most popular items that is exactly what you were looking for. Now all I can think about is planning a really awesome exotic beach vacation, who’s with me? Okay, now let’s talk about the most popular items on my blog, the liketoknow.it app and my Instagram.

The Most Popular Items For May

To shop any of the top items, simply click on the picture and it will take you to the site to purchase! If you love these best of posts and want to know how I obtain this information, then scroll down to the bottom of the post I explain it all there!

Okay, now lets talk all things the behind the scenes.

I use an affiliate program (that most bloggers use) called rewardStyle you are probably familiar with its customer facing app, liketoknow.it . Because I use this service I do have access to data analytics, this means I can track what items are clicked on and purchased. What I cannot see is who clicked on the link or what additional items might have been purchased. For instance, say you click on my favorite lipstick and it takes you to the Ulta site, all I am able to see if that someone made a purchase at Ulta using my lipstick link. Does that make sense?

I loveeeee deep diving into my analytics because I genuinely want to bring you products that you love at a price point that is affordable for everyone!

Shopping through my links can be an extra step for you, but please know it makes all the difference to me. Every purchase made from the liketoknow.it app, my instagram or my blog is how I am able to continue sharing great deals, try on sessions, and everything else. All of that is to say, shopping through my links does not cost you anything additional (the item is the same price), the retailer will just pay me a very small cut since I am the one that referred you.

I am so grateful when you shop through my links and give me credit for helping you find a new piece for your wardrobe! At the end of the day, I hope you use my blog as a resource for all the best deals and amazon finds. If you are ever on the hunt for something or looking for a great deal, please don’t be afraid to ask, I would love to help.

Happy June! XOXO

Backpack Purses – My Favorite Summer Trend

Backpack Purses – My Favorite Summer Trend

Fashion and accessories are always changing and every season brings us a new trend to get excited about. This summer, the trend that I am most excited about are backpack purses. Turns out backpacks are not just for the classroom anymore. This trend first popped up on my Instagram during festival season and now I see cute backpack purses everywhere!

Backpack Purses

I’ve rounded up my favorite backpack purse options of all sizes and prices below! Just hover over each picture to see the price of the bag. All of the listed options are under $100!

The best part about this backpack trend is that it’s not just a purse it can be a laptop bag, diaper bag, carry on, the options are endless. Like, my friend, John C. Reilly said in Step Brothers, ” So much room for activities”. Turns out this quote isn’t really that relevant, I just really love the movie Step Brothers.

Backpack purses are the perfect bag for a weekend on the go. This past weekend we visited some of our best friends in one of my favorite cities, Denver. We had the best time! We drank all the drinks and ate all the food and just had a really great time. I brought my brand new backpack purse along for the ride and was very happy with my new purchase.

I used my backpack purse the entire time we were in Denver and I have to tell you, I am hooked. Not only is it a super cute trend but it’s also so much more comfortable than a large purse.

What do you think about this trend? Are you excited about it or do you think backpacks belong in the classroom? Leave your thoughts in the comments below! XOXO

April on Hat On The Map was all about Spring / Summer fashion, specifically super cute pieces to take on vacation. In fact, the most shopped item was definitely swimsuits! I have no fun beach vacations planned for this month, but boy did I shop as I did. Our swimming pool is going to see me in some cute swimsuits, that’s for sure!

It’s no surprise to me that once again the most popular retailer on Hat On The Map was Amazon. 7 out of 10 of my most popular items are from Amazon, I mean I get it, it’s honestly the best! I do a ton of Amazon stuff because everyone seems to love it but what other retailers would you guys like to see? Please leave a comment below, email me or DM me on Instagram and let me know!!

One more really awesome thing about my most popular April items is everything is under $50!! It appears that everyone really does love a deal!

High Rise Jean Shorts: I will be living in these shorts all summer long, they are so comfortable and fit perfect!
