Try On Tuesday: End Of Summer Roundup

Recently, I have been sharing a try on session every Tuesday (HI Try On Tuesday!) on my Instagram stories and its been such a hit! I thought since Instagram stories only last for 24 hours why not also share these try ons on my blog so they last forever! Moving forward look forward to a try on session every Tuesday on both my Instagram and my blog! All try ons will be saved under the ‘Try On Tuesday’ tab on my main blog menu.

In much sadder news, Summer is quickly coming to an end and I am SO heartbroken! I am obsessed with summer, even the 120 degree days that Palm Springs sometimes sees. I would like to live in a world where it is summer forever! This try on session will be my last with all summer clothes and that breaks my heart! But I live in Palm Springs so I will still have to show off some summer pieces!

This try on includes some Amazon finds and a lot of sale pieces. Everything from this try on is under $25 (but the shoes) ! Your girl loves a deal! Don’t forget, everything is always linked on as well!!

The Most Popular Items for July On Hat On The Map

Happy August! Can you believe we are closer to the year 2020 than to 2018, mind-blowing! Where has 2019 gone?! I can’t believe I am already writing my most popular items for July post! Summer, please slow down!

Traditionally, when I do these end of month round-ups I showcase 10 items. But this month, the round-up is a bit different. For my July round-up, I am shaking things up. When I was reviewing my analytics for the month, I noticed something, there was a lot of the same type of things. For instance: tons of cute, black bodysuits, and affordable sunglasses. All of the most popular items seem to fall into a distinct category. So this month, instead of showcasing the 10 most popular items, I am going to show you the most popular categories on Hat On The Map. So many cute things, so little time!

Important to note: Amazon Prime day happened in July! And Amazon Prime Day this year was GOOD!!! So many amazing deals! You guys must have loved Amazon Prime Day as much as I did because 80% of this list is an Amazon Find!

Okay, now let’s get to the items that you guys loved in July. Also, please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts on this new format!

The Best One Piece Swimsuits On Amazon

The Best One Piece Swimsuits On Amazon

4th of July is behind us so I guess that means summer is in full swing, right? Gosh, I love summer, isn’t it just the best time of year? This 4th of July weekend I spent every moment in one piece swimsuits and that is what I call a complete success!

We spent our 4th of July weekend at Smith Lake in Alabama, with some of our best friends. It was such a perfect weekend. We spent our mornings on the deck, our afternoons floating in the water and our evenings drinking wine and singing karaoke, honestly, PERFECTION!

One Piece Swimsuits
Amazon Swimsuits


In my suitcase for the long weekend was mainly one piece swimsuits because they are my thing!! When I am on the hunt for a new swimsuit, I need one that will stay in place as I jump in and out of the water 100 times. Lounging by the pool all day is not my cup of tea, I need to be moving at all times and I need a swimsuit that can support that.

Summer 2019 is all about the one piece swimsuit, so glad they are back in style! They are so comfortable, flattering and versatile. Pair a one piece swimsuit with a pair of shorts and you have a cute summer outfit! This summer, I have been living in one piece swimsuits from Amazon so I thought it was time to round up all of my favorites! Beyond swimsuits, If you are looking for all my favorite amazon summer finds, you can find that here.

The Best One Piece Swimsuits

All of the swimsuits below are found on Amazon and under $30, your girl likes a deal!

Next week is Amazon Prime day, are you shopping the big sale? Currently, I am working on rounding up all of my favorite things from the sale but I have two questions for you. Will you be shopping Amazon Prime day? If you are, what are you looking for?

Happy Summer my friends!

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.
