October Amazon Haul + Hits And Misses

Amazon Finds, Fall, Looks

October 18, 2018

Happy Thursday, sweet friends! This is the first time I’m trying out Prime Wardrobe (I know, what took me so long?) and I’m sharing my October Amazon Haul… I’m a fan. Every online retailer should offer this service. 

In case you’ve been under the same rock, Prime Wardrobe allows you to try on the clothes at your home before you pay for them. I KNOW. IT’S GENIUS. You have a seven day try-on period, and whatever you don’t like can go right on back and you won’t be charged. Anything you keep, you buy. (Obvs.)

I’ve been doing my Amazon Fashion research for a couple of months now, and I’ve learned some things. For one, stick with either the brand you’re already familiar with and love, or Amazon brands, such as Daily Ritual and Core 10.

I’ve loved every Daily Ritual piece I’ve ordered. (Think soft, seasonless staples that will wear and wash well, like this striped tunic and this gray long sleeve tee.)

If you’re looking for pieces that will take you from pilates to the park, look no further than Core 10. Their leggings are a new favorite and are less than my Zella favorites. 

Most of the pieces I ordered were hits, but there are a few misses in there, too. 

I’m going to try to share an Amazon haul each month, so let me know what you’d like to see! Be sure to subscribe to the blog so you don’t miss it! 

Thanks for stopping by…

Bomber jacket, leggings, Adidas sneakers

Core 10 bomber jacket (wearing xs) | Old Navy active tank | Core 10 Ballerina yoga leggings | Adidas Flashback sneakers

I knew I was going to love this bomber jacket and it didn’t let me down. It’s thin enough to be comfortable, but it doesn’t feel cheap. It’s color-blocking done right and completes any fitness/athleisure look.

These yoga leggings were a part of my Prime Wardrobe order because I wasn’t sure how they would fit and if I would like them.

Damn, Core 10. You did it. I’m a believer. 

They are super flattering and they suck me in without making me feel like I can’t breathe. I’m also a big fan of the crosswaist, which I haven’t worn since I was pregnant and now I’m wondering why that is…

Superga leopar sneakers and Dolce Vita leopard sneakers

Superga Leopard sneakers | DV by Dolce Vita Leopard sneakers

I know, I know. I have a leopard shoe problem. (Or, is it a leopard shoe solution? AHA.) But I’m not totally crazy, because the DV by Dolce Vita Leopard sneakers are going back. I LOVE them, but they’re too small. They weren’t stocked in my normal size, so I went down half a size and they’re not going to cut it.

These Superga leopard sneakers will be on repeat all season long. Obsessed.

Tee shirt dress, blanket scarf, leopard sneakers

Daily Ritual 3/4 sleeve tee shirt dress (wearing | blanket scarf (comes in a TON of colors) |  DV by Dolce Vita Leopard sneakers

If you work in an office or wear dresses in your everyday life, you need this dress. It’s soft and really feels like you’re wearing a tee. It’s tough to find a dress with 3/4 length sleeves, so scoop up this one. Did I mention it’s $20?? 

I don’t think I’ve ever met a blanket scarf I didn’t like. The good news is you don’t have to pay a fortune for a good one. This one is less than $13. It’s pretty big so you can wear it a ton of different ways. I’ll be sharing a blog post soon on different ways to style it, so stay tuned. 🙂

Tee shirt dress, cardigan, leopard sneakers

Daily Ritual 3/4 sleeve tee shirt dress | leopard slides (sold out, similar here) | cardigan (wearing small) | DV by Dolce Vita Leopard sneakers

You know that this LBD is most definitely a hit, but now for the miss. I really wanted to like this cardigan. Even when I opened up the package, I liked it. But every time I put it on, I don’t like it. It’s not cozy and it feels boxy. And the color does nothing for me. It’s going back.

Vest, long sleeve tee, leggings, Ugg boots

Herringbone vest (wearing XS) | Daily Ritual long sleeve tee (wearing XS) | Core 10 high waist leggings (wearing XS) | Ugg boots

If you’ve been a fan of this J Crew vest but are bummed that the herringbone patterned vest changed and it’s now printed rather than textured, this vest is for you. You guys. This is probably my most favorite item of this month’s haul and I didn’t expect to like it. The quality is amazing and the fit isn’t boxy at all.

Alright, these leggings give my high waisted Zella leggings a run for their money. Another Core 10 win, for sure. And they’re less than $40. They come in 4 colors and go up to size 3X. 

This  Daily Ritual long sleeve tee is soft, stretchy and covers the booty. What else do you need in a tee? I’m wearing XS, so it’s perfect for layering, but I don’t think I would wear it alone. When I order it in more colors (which, duh), I’m going to order small.

Faux fur vest, long sleeve tee, Levi's jeans, Superga leopard sneakers

Jack by BB Dakota faux fur vest (wearing small) | Daily Ritual long sleeve tee (wearing XS) | Levi’s jeans (TTS) | Superga Leopard sneakers

Faux fur for the win. OK, I like this vest, but it’s too big. I’ve learned that anything BB Dakota runs BIG. I would size down. That said, I’m going to keep it because it’s really cute.

Moto jacket, striped tunic pullover, high waist leggings

BB Dakota fleece moto jacket (wearing XS) | Daily Ritual striped tunic pullover (wearing small)Core 10 high waist leggings (wearing XS) | New Balance (sold out, similar here)

Yep,fleece moto jacket is a bit big for me. I love it and wished it fit better. I am still trying to decide if I’m going to keep it. 

I ordered this Daily Ritual striped tunic pullover last month and have found myself reaching for it more than I thought I would. Whether I’m out running errands or hanging out at home, chances are I’m wearing it. It’s stretchy. And striped. LOVE.

Fur jacket, denim

Ugh. This one went back within 5 minutes. Major miss. I was drowning in it and it looked like I was 4 years old and playing dress up in my mom’s closet. Bummed because it looks so cute online!
