AMAZON BIG SPRING SALE DEALS

Ready to look at my favorites? Let’s start by looking at sweaters. 

Sweaters

Lady Jacket striped cardigan 

My love for J.Crew’s striped Emilie Lady Jacket led me on the hunt for a more affordable option to add another color combination to my closet. If you love to wear black, this cardigan will make your outfit pop. I love it so much that I included it as a wardrobe essential in my spring trends post and my spring capsule wardrobe.

Wear it with shorts, pants, or jeans. I just shared a Reel on Instagram showing how I plan to wear it with a black dress in spring. It also comes in black with a white stripe.

Lady Jacket khaki cardigan

I’m putting together a mini jeans business casual capsule wardrobe and wanted an elevated piece that’s not a blazer. I also wanted a color that’s easier to wear for a variety of skin tones than camel. This is listed as khaki but has a slight peach undertone that’s surprisingly good.

Short-sleeve collared cable-knit sweater

I love how a textured white sweater makes a simple outfit pop. This white one is a new addition to my closet and is perfect for transitional weather. It’s super soft and versatile.

Dresses

Green notch-neck dress

This green notch-neck dress is perfect for a garden party. The A-line shape is forgiving around the midsection, and the notched V-neck helps draw attention to your face. The ruffle sleeves add charm and an interesting detail to the dress. It’s super easy to wear and hits just above the knee at 5’6”.

Pink tiered maxi dress

This sleeveless tiered pink maxi dress with a tie-neck reminds me of one of my favorite designers, Ralph Lauren. Not surprisingly, Lauren Ralph Lauren is showing several dresses in this dusty pink color. It’s gorgeous paired with cognac brown accessories.

Olive green t-shirt dress

T-shirt dresses can be cut too straight for my size 12 lower half. But this one has a swing cut that’s nice and roomy. You can belt it, wear it layered under a blazer, or wear it alone. When you wash it, air dry it flat so it doesn’t stretch out.

Shoes and a belt

So many of my favorite spring shoes you’ll find on Amazon. 

6 pairs of shoes

From top, left to right: Tretorns | Stan Smith Sneakers | Blush Ballet Flats | Lucky Brand Sandals | Bow Mules | Bay Brown Slides

Tretorns with green logo

Cute classics with the comfort you remember. The Kelly green logo scratches my itch to wear green all spring, and I love to match it with a cute green sweater. 

Stan Smith original Adidas

Another nostalgic style, these have a roomy toebox and cushy footbed, making them my white sneakers of choice.

Cole Haan ballet flats

I’ve already worn these blush-tan ballet flats with an almond-shaped toe several times this spring. They’re cushy, comfy, and neutral.

Lucky Brand ankle wrap sandals

I love a low block-heel ankle wrap sandal. These have a wearable 2⅘ inch heel. They’re great with spring dresses.

Black suede bow mules

These mules give a flat shoe a dressy look. Some mules are hard to walk in, but these aren’t. The pointy toe elongates your leg and is unexpectedly comfortable. 

Sam Edelman Bay slides

These were my go-to slides last summer with everything from shorts to dresses and jeans. They’re comfy and more elevated than flip-flops

Brown and black reversible belt

This good-looking reversible Amazon belt with a gold buckle is the affordable version of a Boden belt and a best seller. It’s brown on one side and black on the other and great for traveling since you have two options. I’ve been reaching for it as much as the more expensive belt.

Swimsuits, coverups, Panama hat, and self-tanner

It’s nice to try swimsuits on in the privacy of your own home. Amazon has so many great options.

Red Bathing Suit | Black Bathing Suit | Striped Bathing Suit | Black and White Bathing Suit 

Red one-shoulder ruffle suit

I love the color and fun ruffled one-sleeve look of this red suit. It has removable padding, which is great for smaller busts. The bodice is ruched, compressed, and super flattering in the belly region. I ordered a large in this suit, and that works even though the single-strap top is not adjustable.

Black v-neck ruffle-sleeve suit

With a flattering v-neck, in this suit, the ruffles are on the outside of the wide strap, emphasizing smaller shoulders. I love this wide strap construction. It’s very comfortable to wear. The bodice is compressed and rushed with a power mesh tummy control lining. I’m wearing a medium, and that size works.

White and black striped suit

This bathing suit is so cute! I’m a sucker for stripes, and the vertical stripes and plunging neckline help to draw the eye up to the face. The top has ruffles and removable cups, which are great for a smaller chest. The bodice has ruching and also compression to contain and hide a belly. It’s very snug to pull on because of the compression.  I ordered a medium when I’ve been ordering a large, which may be why it feels tighter to pull on.

White and black color-blocking suit

A color-blocked swimsuit is a great option if you’re trying to de-emphasize one part of your body and draw the eye to another. In this suit, the eye skims over the dark half and is drawn to the lighter color it’s paired with. This suit has padded removable cups and adjustable straps. I ordered a large, but I may be able to go down a size for the bust. This suit is lined.

Let’s look at some coverups!

Amazon Shirtdress in blue | Similar Flip-Flops | Similar Bag | Bathing Suit | Sarong “Midnight Grey” | Similar Bag | Similar Necklace | Similar Flip-Flops

Striped maxi coverup

You know I love a striped button-down shirt, so it’s no wonder I love a striped maxi dress coverup. This one is oversized, cotton, flowy and very forgiving in the middle with drop sleeves. I’m wearing it in a small. Be sure to roll up your sleeves to draw the eye to your waist and help define your midsection. 

Sarong

A sarong is perfect for throwing on over your bathing suit to take a stroll down the beach. This delicate gray print looks great with the red of this suit. 

Here are a few other vacation essentials, including the sunless tanning lotion that gave me the courage to post bathing suit pictures online.

Panama hat, self tanning lotion, application mitt, exfoliating glove

Similar Panama Hat | Self Tanner Tanning Lotion in medium to dark | Self Tanning Mitt | Exfoliating Gloves (4 pack)

Panama hat

This on-trend Panama sun hat is great if you’re looking for some extra sun protection. 

Self-tanner tanning lotion

This self-tanner gave me the courage to post bathing suit photos for the first time. You know what they say, if you can’t tone it, tan it.

I only wear it on my bottom half to even out my awful shorts tan. As a self-tanner newbie, I wasn’t sure how this would turn out.

I remove dead skin in the shower with an exfoliating glove and use a special mitt to apply the tanner after my nightly shower, following the instructions. The next morning, I have a nice sunny glow. It lasts for 4 to 5 days. I use the medium to dark shade with olive skin. It’s paraben-free and made with organic ingredients. 

Self-tanner mitt applicator

To avoid turning the palms of your hands orange, you want to apply your self-tanner with a mitt. This one works great. I rinse it well after using it and hang it to dry. 

Exfoliating gloves 

You want to exfoliate before applying sunless tanning lotion for a smooth application. These heavy-duty exfoliating gloves, which come in a 4-pack, allow me to remove dead skin between my toes. They have very good scrubbing ability. 

Beauty products

I’ve been using subscribe and save auto deliveries for all my favorite beauty products, so I never run out of essentials like shampoo or conditioner. 

beauty products

Seen Blow-Out Creme | Giovanni Smooth As Silk Shampoo | OGX Keratin Oil Conditioner | Burt’s Bees Renewal Intensive Firming Serum | Mineral Fusion “Sunkissed” Nail Polish | Mineral Fusion Top Coat

Seen Blow-out Cream

This blowout cream protects hair from heat styling and gives my hair a smooth, frizz-free finish. I have it on auto-ship, so I never run out. 

Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture Shampoo 

This shampoo saves me from being eternally frizzy. It has the most delightful grapefruit scent and is sulfate and paraben-free. I have it scheduled to deliver on auto-ship every 3 months. I love that the 24-ounce bottle has a pump dispenser.

OGX Frizz-Free + Keratin Smoothing Oil Conditioner

I tried many conditioners before finding this one. Together with my blowout cream, it gives my hair the smooth surface I want. I have this on auto-ship. I wish the bottle were bigger and lasted longer because I like to slather my long hair in it when I wash it every other day. 

Burt’s Bees Renewal Intensive Firming Face Serum

This retinol alternative made my pores and skin look tighter from the first use. I love all the Burt’s Bees Renewal products and have them set to auto-deliver. I do wish the bottle was bigger. 

Mineral Fusion top coat

My nail polish lasts so much longer with a nice clear top coat. 

Mineral Fusion nail polish in “sunkissed”

I get comments on my favorite nail polish all the time. It’s my power color, a super fun reddish-orange color.  It really needs a top coat to keep from chipping.

Undergarments

Amazon is also my go-to for my favorite bras and tank tops.

bra and tank tops

Bra in desert | Navy and Red Tank Tops | 2-Pack Beige Tank Tops

True & Co Women’s True Body Triangle Convertible Strap Bra

During the pandemic, I threw out all my uncomfortable bras. This is the only bra I wear now. It pulls on overhead so you don’t have to deal with an uncomfortable clasp, and the back converts to a crisscross, so the straps don’t show with a tank top. The pads are removable. The color here is “desert”

Amazon Essentials tank tops

If you like a long scoop neck tank top, I love these because they’re nice and long and perfect for tucking in. I wear the thin strap medium beige color tank tops with sheer tops. They come in packs of 2. 

Closet storage and laundry

Here are some of my favorite laundry essentials.

closet storage and laundry products

Velvet Hangers | Clothing Steamer | Cold Iron Wrinkle Release Spray | Over Door Hanger

Velvet covered hangers

If you haven’t switched to matching velvet hangers yet, you’ll be surprised by how much better your closet looks with them. Plus, clothes hold their shape better without puckering on the shoulders. Their soft, non-slip surface is much gentler on your clothes than plastic hangers. They come in a pack of 50. 

Steamer

My first line of defense against wrinkles is my steamer. Psychologically, it feels so much easier to use than the iron. This one heats up quickly and steams for about 15 minutes before you have to refill the water. 

Cold Iron Wrinkle Release Spray

This is a brand-new purchase for me. I haven’t even used it yet. But I love the idea of melting away wrinkles in 15 minutes of hands-off time. Reviewers love that this spray is odor-free and made with clean ingredients. I’ll test this out and report back. 

Over door hanger

This rod solves the problem of where to hang a piece of clothing while you steam it. I hang it on the bathroom door, plug the steamer into the plug by the bathroom door, and steam away.
