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!

Amazon Spring Fashion Haul

Amazon Spring Fashion Haul

The other day I had this great idea to do a Palm Springs inspired Amazon spring fashion haul, when the order came in all I wanted to do was take my fashion finds and go on an exotic vacation to a tropical island. So think of this haul less as Palm Springs and more Hawaiian spring break.

Spring Outfits 2019

I was on the search for fun colors, bold prints and lightweight material and ended up with some great pieces. Amazon can be a tricky place for clothes shopping but over the past year I have really gained a great understanding of how to find the best items on Amazon. For additional Amazon shopping tips, I blogged about it here.

I posted a try-on session on my Instagram Stories with most of these items, so if you are interested in more a more detailed look at any of the below items you will find those specifics there.

Spring Swimsuits

Okay now lets get to the most imprtant part of this post, Swimsuits! I have so many swimsuits! I am kind of a swimsuit hoarder. During the cooler months, my husband and I get in the jaquzzi 2 – 3 times a week and in the summer we are in our pool about 5 – 6 times a week. We are water people!

High waisted swimsuits and One Piece Swimsuits are really trending this year and I am so excited about that! I love one piece swimsuits, I am one of those people who love to be active in the water and need something that I feel will keep me covered at all costs.





I really need to take myself on a grown up spring break. If you are going on an exciting spring vacation, please tell me about it below.

The Best Skincare Products Found On Amazon

The Best Skincare Products Found On Amazon

As you probably already know, skincare is something I feel passionate about (very passionate) ! I am always reading about new, innovative skincare products and techniques but at the same time I am very picky about the products that I use because I have such sensitive skin! I work hard to avoid the hype & marketing gimmicks and try to choose my skincare products based on ingredients that are well-researched and proven to make a difference, while also staying within budget.

When I am searching for skincare products I look for products that will help combat fine lines and give me skin that glows like JLo’s. I mean isn’t that what we all want?!

Today I have roundup the best skincare saviors that are easily available on Amazon prime. I have personally tested all of these, so I can say with complete confidence that I love them! What’s even better is that they are under $25! Okay let’s get to the important stuff.

The Best Skincare Products On Amazon For Under $25

Beyond just my normal creams and serums there are a few tools and techniques that I swear by to give me the best complexion. Let’s talk about those tools and techniques real fast:

  1. Chemical Face Peel – An at home chemical face peel will help eliminate fine lines and dark spots while simultaneously remove dead skin cells to provide a glowing complexion.
  2. Shaving Your Face – I have been doing this for years and swear by it (I have linked my favorite tool abov). It helps to exfoliate your skin and gives a great base for flawless makeup application. If you don’t believe me, read what Cosmopolitan has to say about it here.
  3. Ice Roller – Goodbye Puffiness! If you are like me and struggle with puffiness on your face than an ice roller is a must! Apparently doing this is also supposed to help with migraines but I can’t speak on that.

What are your favorite skincare products to buy on Amazon?

The Most Popular Fashions Of 2018

The Most Popular Fashions Of 2018

Okay, I’ll admit it, that title is misleading. Do I know what the most popular fashion pieces from all over the world were for 2018? No. Do I know what the most popular pieces on my blog, Pinterest and Instagram were? ABSOLUTELY!

The biggest adventure of 2018 was right here, my blog, Hat On The Map. Blogging has been something my husband has encouraged for many years but it wasn’t until this year that I had the courage and confidence to pursue this dream. In 2018, I took the time to really invest my energy into making my blog dream a reality.

When I began blogging and putting my life and style out there on Instagram, I was scared. I was nervous about what my friends and acquaintances would think but let me tell you the response I received from my friends, family and strangers has been incredible.

Thanks to my blog, I am now able to regularly share all of the items I am excited about. From beauty and makeup to my favorite groceries, y’all have followed along every step of the way. The best part is, not only have you guys followed along but you have fallen in love with these items as well.

I have rounded up the most popular items from my blog, Pinterest and Instagram and am so excited to share these items with you once more.

The Most Popular Items for 2018

The below items are the most clicked on pieces from my Pinterest, blog, and Instagram. In staying true to my attainable fashion brand, everything listed can be purchased for under $50. I don’t think anyone will be surprised by this fact but 7 out of 10 of these items were purchased from Amazon. So, here we go.

High Rise Ankle Jeans

High Rise Jeans

I’m going to be honest, I feel like I am way too old to be wearing Abercrombie but these jeans are so dang flattering. It’s no wonder these jeans were the most popular item on my blog and instagram.

Revlon Colorstay Makeup

I wrote a blog post a few months back about Estee Lauder Double Wear Makeup Dupes (you can read that post here) and to no surprise, it was my most popular blog post. The dupe I sang the most praise for was the one I wear almost everyday, the Revlon Colorstay Foundation and in turn the most popular makeup item on my blog or Instagram.

Midi Sequin Dress

Sequin Cocktail Dress

Of course my birthday dress is on this list! I bought this dress for under $40 and it is the cutest, most flattering dress that I own. Also, yall know I love some sequins!!!!

Star Sweater

Casual Sweater

The most likes I ever received on an Instagram post was wearing this sweater so I am really happy this one made the most popular list!

Pink Oversized Sweater

Pink Sweater

This sweater is so comfortable and casual, you will never want to take it off. It’s listed as a sweater but I would describe it more as a knitted thermal, if that makes sense?

Knitted Turtleneck Sweater

Turtleneck Sweater

Yes, yes, yes this sweater! Oversized, comfortable and the perfect fall to winter transitional piece.

Bell Sleeve Sweater

Trumpet Sleeve Sweater

This sweater is under $13 and is quite a hit! If you live in a warm climate like myself and experience mild winters then this sweater is a necessity!

Faux Leather Skirt

Faux Leather Skirt

This skirt is seriously the most flattering skirt I have ever owned, no joke. In the past month this skirt has been featured on about half of my Instagram posts, so when I say I am obsessed I am not kidding.

Crossbody Purse

Crossbody Purse

I think this is supposed to be a dupe for the Gucci crossbody and while I am not into designer dupes, I am really into this purse.

Red Off The Shoulder Sweater

I am currently loving off the shoulder sweaters, maybe I was supposed to grow up in the 1980s. This was the perfect sweater to get me through the holiday season and the perfect shade of maroon to transition to January in.

Mocassin Slippers

I have lived in these slippers the past two weeks. Embarrassingly enough, I even wore these through the Orlando airport after one of our red-eye flights. Whatever, I love comfort.

What was your absolute favorite item that you purchased in 2018? Beyond this above list, I think my favorite item are these sequin joggers! Comfort and sequins, yes yes yes!

Thanks for following along and supporting this blogging journey of mine. I am so very thankful for every individual who has cheered me along on this scary but very exciting blogging journey. I am so excited to see what 2019 has in store.
