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?

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.

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

Guys, its May. How did that happen? I am not going to annoy you with a really awesome ‘Nsync lyric but just know that I am thinking it! Not only did April bring us showers but it also brought us some really awesome warm-weather fashion.

A new month means that I get to share the most popular items from the previous month. If you are curious about how I determine the most popular items every month, it is a combination of the most popular items on Instagram, the liketoknow.it app and my blog.

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!

Now let’s get to the most popular items on Hat On The Map from April.

Revlon Colorstay Foundation: Turns out that you guys love this Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Dupe as much as I do.

Off The Shoulder Bikini: This bikini is the cutest, I can imagine it now, sitting on a white beach, with a drink in my hand wearing this cute little bikini.

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

Tie Front One Piece Swimsuit: I loveeeeee a swimsuit with no straps because who wants tan lines, you know?!

White Nikes: The perfect white sneaker for spring! Because a cute sandal does not fit every occasion.

Cut Out One Piece Swimsuit: I love Cupshe! Here’s a shopping secret; almost all of Cupshe’s inventory is available Amazon Prime, a much easier way to shop this awesome retailer.

High Waisted Bikini: I am the number one fan of this high waisted bikini trend, gimme all the flattering bikinis!

Valentine’s Day Outfit’s For The Homebody

I am going to be honest, I am not one of those girls that enjoys getting dressed up and going out for Valentine’s Day. I find all the restaurants overcrowded, overpriced, and it’s just not my thing. With all of that being said, I am still a huge fan of Valentine’s Day! HUGE! I love any day where you get to wear pink and hearts and glitter and eat lots of chocolate!

Romantic love always takes the spotlight of Valentine’s Day but I think it’s a great time to celebrate all of the love in your life. My friends and I always do a big Galentine’s Day sleepover and it is my all time favorite tradition. Do y’all celebrate Valentine’s Day with your best friends or your parents, or siblings? I really love the idea of celebrating all the love in my life on Valentine’s Day.

Casual Valentine’s Day Outfits

Red Sweater

This year for Valentine’s Day my husband and I will be at home celebrating the holiday with our sweet angel cats. My idea of a perfect Valentine’s Night is a steak dinner, a big glass of spicy red wine (if you think spicy is a weird word to describe wine then I have some wine that I need to introduce you to) and ending the evening by playing dominos while watching a movie. Oh maybe even a big dessert, yes, that sounds like the perfect evening.

Since I won’t be putting on a fancy dress and celebrating Valentine’s Day that way, I have rounded up all of my favorite Valentine’s Day clothes that will for sure get you excited to celebrate all things love at home!

Casual Valentine’s Day Outfits





What does your perfect Valentine’s Day look like? Are you like me and love a night in or would you much rather have a nice night out?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Amazon Fashion Haul: Last Minute Holiday Outfits

Amazon Fashion Haul: Last Minute Holiday Outfits
Casual Winter Outfits

Sweater Dress | Boots

Earlier this year, I started doing a monthly Amazon fashion haul and it has been such a hit! I search Amazon up and down and purchase about 10 pieces of the best quality, affordable pieces from Amazon. Well,  my December Amazon haul might have been my favorite haul thus far. This order has brought my favorite new winter fashion staples.

Can searching for fashion on Amazon be a chore? Yes, you must search and search some more but Amazon has some really cute items! I am able to find the exact pieces all the popular online boutiques have but on Amazon. The best part is, these pieces are much more affordable on Amazon.

The theme of the December Amazon haul is “cute outfits for a fun night out with your friends from high school”. Who doesn’t want to look their best when they run into the cute boy you sat behind in geometry?  During the holiday season, there are always so many casual meet-ups and a new, cute outfit is exactly what is needed for those nights out.

Last week, I did an Instagram try on session of this December haul and that  is saved under my highlights on Instagram.

Okay, lets get to the fun winter fashion.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
