It’s December 11. WHOAH.
I know that half of you probably already have all of your gifts wrapped and under the tree. #goodforyou
And the other half have barely even started.
I mean, there are 2 kinds of people, am I right?
This year I happen to fall into the BARELY EVEN STARTED category. #sigh
I have one thing for my mom, one thing for my MIL, one thing for Chris, and 2 things for Carter.
I’m pretty annoyed with myself, but I know I’ll pull it together like I always do! And luckily I’ve found some festive things to wear that totally have me in the holiday spirit!
If you’re in the barely even started category with me, WELCOME. #solidaritysister
I’m hoping today’s post will be a great help to you, especially if you have ladies on your list that you still need to shop for. (If you have men and boys to still shop for, click HERE for my post from yesterday!)
Or perhaps, if you’re one of the ones that already has gifts labeled and wrapped with gorgeous bows, well then you need to treat yourself to a little something for being so together. I’m in awe of you. And maybe a tiny bit annoyed. Haha!
But before we review some of my favorite Amazon finds THAT ARE STILL AVAILABLE FOR CHRISTMAS DELIVERY, I thought I would feature a handful of new things.
Let’s kick things off with this adorable Merry Christmas sweatshirt!
Now, let me say this. This sweatshirt looks quite a bit different than I was expecting. You’ll see that on the link, it looks a little more like a washed red, and the sweatshirt has almost a vintage look to it which I loved. I was initially disappointed when I opened up the box and saw this one (bright red and doesn’t look vintage-y at all), but then I realized it’s still cute, just different than I thought it was going to be. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
This festive little tee will have you in the Christmas spirit in no time! It’s soft and fits well. I’m wearing a medium.
I already have this sweatshirt in a star pattern that I wear all the time, so I snatched up the camo when it hit the site. I’m wearing a medium here, but I would size up to a large if wearing with leggings. It’s not thick, but it’s lined with a line layer of fleecy material, which makes it oh so cozy. It’s ONLY $20 and has fantastic reviews!
And how cute is this camo puffer jacket. LOOK AT THE LINING! The lining looks pink here, but it’s definitely more of a coral/orange. It’s super cute. I’m wearing a small here, but I definitely need a medium. It’s a great price at under $45!
Before I show you this next sweater, let’s all remember that this is a no judgement zone, M’KAY?
This is the 4th color I’ve purchased in this sweater.
And I’m not even ashamed. Not even a little.
So many of y’all shared that you had 3 colors, so I felt like I needed 3 too. And then all of a sudden I had 4.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
TRIED AND TRUE ITEMS THAT ARRIVE BY CHRISTMAS
I’ve had a lot of requests for Amazon gift ideas this year. The sheer convenience of Amazon makes it so appealing to so many this year. And truth be told, we could probably all shop exclusively on Amazon for Christmas and get a great variety of items for everybody on our lists!
So in an effort to help some fellow procrastinators out there, I scanned my previous posts and found things I love that are still available and that will ARRIVE BY CHRISTMAS! (I checked all my links last night and they all said “Arrives by Christmas!”….and many showed 2 day shipping…hoping that still holds true today!)
Let’s kick things off with an outfit where several pieces are from Amazon including the cardi, the necklace, the earrings, the bracelet, and the tote!
This cardi is a wonderful basic. It comes in 6 great colors and is lightweight enough that it can really be considered a year round cardigan. I think the longer line makes it very flattering, and it can easily be dressed up or down. It’s ONLY $27 and is definitely nice enough for an office environment. For size reference, I’m wearing an XS, but I think a regular S would be better.
The simple gold hoops, the fun tassel, and the multi strand gold bracelets are all fabulous and under $15. And the tote is NOW UNDER $15! WHAT THE HECK.
Here’s the same cardigan in camel. I LOVE IT IN THE CAMEL, and I think it looks awesome with my Amazon leopard belt that is under $15. It’s a totally chic look that is made up of basics that every closet needs.
I seriously cannot get over the price of this tote. It was a great deal when it was under $20, BUT UNDER $15 IS JUST NUTS.
The tote comes in sooooooooooooo many colors. I ordered 3 in the brown/cognac family, and this one was the clear winner! It’s called “brown new style”, and it looked the most like real leather, and the color was definitely the most rich. As you can see, I like tying a bandana to the strap (click HERE for all Madewell bandana choices), but look below the bandana and you will see the cute tassel that comes on the bag! It’s great too! And this tote is the perfect size for the medium felt organizer.
Also, I’ve had a handful of readers ask, and it’s definitely smaller than the cognac tote I have from Nordstrom. I know some of you didn’t like how large the Nordstrom tote was, so I’m happy that you now have this as an option. I will say, I’ve carried the Nordstrom tote for over a year now and have always been impressed with the size and durability…but this new tote actually looks nicer, and it honestly looks more like real leather. And I’ll go ahead and say it again. FITEEN DOLLARS.
Here’s the bag styled in another outfit…
I love everything you see here! And all of it makes a great gift!
And as a reminder…the cardi is under $20, the blingy necklace is under $15, the tassel necklace is under $10, the tote is under $20, and the flats are under $25! WOW.
This bracelet (A2 short gold) was such a nice surprise for me. I had low expectations for it for some reason, but it blew those out of the water. It has a magnetic closure and boasts multilayered gold leather cords. To be honest, when I saw it in the package, I was a little disappointed. But then I put it on and fell in love. It’s so good and just under $12 right now. There are countless color options and variations of this bracelet, and I suggest you hop over to check some of them out. Lots of the options are actually really great, but this one is officially called “A2 short gold”.
What about a leopard belt as a present? If you’re loved one doesn’t have one, fix her up for Christmas!
I scoured Amazon, ordered this one to try for y’all, and it’s great!
Click HERE for the belt. It’s UNDER $15 and has incredible reviews!
We can’t talk Amazon accessories and Amazon gifts without talking about my very favorite pave huggie earrings.
I mean, I’m not a diamond expert, but I think these babies look real. AND THEY ARE JUST $12.95! I wear these alllllllll the time. I sleep in them, I talk on the phone with them, and I LOVE them.
In fact, I love them so much it was my gift of choice for all my friends at this year’s favorite things party!
While we’re talking about accessories, I have to mention this bracelet! It’s AWESOME!
I’ve had this turquoise wrap bracelet since Spring I think, and it’s still a favorite. The colors are so vibrant, and the price is unbelievable. This would make a great stocking stuffer, and it comes in several other colors as well.
Now that we’ve talked accessories, let’s move on to some super comfy pieces.
How flipping cute is this MOM MODE sweatshirt! It also comes in black and grey, but I fell in love with the blush. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium for a very relaxed fit. I wore this sweatshirt with denim shorts and my new neutral sneakers this week and it was so cute.
For another super casual look, check out this soft polar fleece jacket. I love this vibrant pink but it comes in TONS of colors, and most are under $25. It’s super soft, super warm, super stretchy, and super cute! And as always, I love the stand up collar.
I’m in love with this sweatshirt. Now, the cute little star pattern doesn’t arrive until after Christmas, but the other patterns like leopard and camo will still get to you in time! It’s the same sweatshirt as the camo one I’m wearing at the top of the post (with the pink hat), so I wanted to you to see how if you size up you could wear it with leggings. For size reference, I’m wearing a large in this one because I wanted to make very sure it was going to be long enough for my leggings, and it most definitely is!
It’s so flipping cozy and I can’t believe the price. The leggings are awesome and I’m wearing a small.
This sweatshirt is from Old Navy, but the leggings are the Amazon ones that I’m OBSESSED with. Officially, they are called High Waist Power Flex Leggings – With Tummy Control. They are FANTASTIC because they suck you in while still allowing you to breathe. It says they promote both compression and support, and they are not see thru at all. I’m wearing a small in the leggings and love the fit. Click HERE for all the different legging lengths that are available.
A fleece sweatshirt, pajama shorts, and a big floppy headband? YES, PLEASE!
The sweatshirt is UNDER $10, the pajama shorts are UNDER $15, and you can get a 4 pack of the head bands for UNDER $20! The headbands would make a great stocking stuffer! They are perfect to throw on when washing your face or masking. I’m wearing a medium in the sweatshirt and a small in the shorts.
Okay, back to some sweaters and cardigans. This open front black cardigan is one that I think everybody could use in their closet. It hangs really nicely and isn’t heavy at all. You could wear this one year round. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
This boxy pullover sweater is just my style. This color is officially called “lilac”, but I feel like it’s closer to a really beautiful pale blush. The quality is amazing and I love the ribbed neck, cuffs, and hem. I’m wearing a medium here, but I’ve already returned it for a small.
Click HERE to see the same sweater styled with my black jeans and black mules.
A classic camel colored sweater is a closet necessity. I love it here with black jeans, but it will also be great with skinny blue jeans, my itty bitty boot cut jeans, black suit pants, and pencil skirts.
And here’s the real kicker. This sweater is ONLY $23. And it comes in 32 colors/color combinations! Some of the patterns cost a bit more, but all of them are under $25.
I’m IN LOVE with this hoodie sweater. This dark grey is sold out, but there are several other colors available. I know I’m wearing it super casually here with leggings and sneakers, but it actually feels very luxe. And it looks and feels much more expensive than it’s under $40 price tag. I’m wearing a medium.
Okay, listen up. If you haven’t bought this sweater yet, fix that right now. Buy it for yourself or any lady you know. Just buy it. I’ve pretty much made it my mission for all of you to at least try this sweater.
Click HERE if you want to get to the post dedicated to this little gem. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
This sweater is SERIOUSLY soft. And it’s a super relaxed fit (which I love). It has a bit of a bat wing design, but it’s still very flattering. I’m wearing the small here and it’s still quite roomy. It comes in 12 total colors.
I had a lot of people asking me about the fabric content since we couldn’t find it listed on the site. I didn’t know then, but I’ve since found an interior tag with the following info: 50% Viscose, 30% Nylon, 20% PBT. If I had to guess, I would have guessed clouds and unicorn wings.
All right, ladies.
Please listen to me when I tell you that this cardi is CRAZY soft. The ratings are fantastic, and I couldn’t agree more. It comes in 13 colors, so there’s something for everybody. I got this last year and have worn it so many times, and I keep finding new ways to style it.
For size reference, I’m wearing the x-small/small.
Both colors are from last year, but the outfits and pics are new!
I love the fit, the length, and the color of the cardi. And it’s 100% cotton, which I know so many of us love. This “terra cotta” is a gorgeous color, but it looks more pink in my pictures than it actually is. It definitely has some blush tones in it, but terra cotta is a good description of the color (although it leans more pink clay than orange). I hope that helps. Haha!
I’m wearing a small, and I might even be able to go x-small because the shoulders do hang off a bit. The shoulders don’t bother me enough to exchange it, so I’m keeping the small.
You might remember this blue sweater from several months ago, but I’ve styled it a little differently here. When a sweater is this soft, it deserves another mention. It’s got a double v neck (front and back), ribbing details, and a split hem. It’s got a great fit. And did I mention SOFT? It isn’t tight, but it’s not slouchy either. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
This collared wrap dress feels very DVF, and it’s UNDER $40! It looks high end, but it’s just a small percentage of the price of a real DVF. I would need to add a snap closure on the chest to be comfortable wearing it, but this is such a great dress. It comes in solids too, but I think this pattern is much more forgiving than a solid would be. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
This little black dress is a fantastic find. And you’re not going to believe the price.
It’s a quintessential little black dress, and it can be styled several ways which is awesome. On the left, you can see it with the belt wrapped around and tied at the waist with a bow. On the right, you can see it cinched up in the back with a cute little tie, which gives you a bit of shape. It can also be worn without the belt at all like a sheath dress.
The quality is excellent. It’s fully lined and has beautiful details like a ruffle neck and flutter sleeves. This dress can easily be styled with sandals or heels, and depending on how you accessorize it could be worn everywhere from lunch with a girlfriend, to the office, or even to a more formal event! It comes in other colors and patterns which are more casual too.
For size reference, I’m wearing a 6. GRAB THIS DRESS in one of the colors for sure!
This is the same dress in a blush animal print pattern! Again, I’m wearing a 6.
This dress is one that could totally fill y’alls request for work wear, but if styled a certain way, it could also be a classic little black dress. It could totally be feminine and flirty worn out for a night on the town!
I love the longer sleeve length and the flouncy ruffle at the bottom of the sleeve and the large ruffle on the hem. The fit is great! It skims the body without hugging it, which is just the way I like it! There is a seam down the middle of the dress (that you can see better on the online pictures), but it doesn’t bother me at all. I just wanted to make sure you were aware of it.
And get this, it’s UNDER $20! And even though it’s so inexpensive, I think it’s very well made.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. If I didn’t need the room in the chest, a small would probably be fine..
Also…if you want to see it on others, click HERE and scroll down to the reviews to see pictures that others have taken in the dress. (Sidenote, I should have applied my favorite self tanner before taking these pictures!)
And don’t forget this long sleeve wrap dress (with FANTASTIC reviews) that is beautifully made and rings in at at anywhere from $18-$42 depending on your color. It comes in several colors, including a great leopard!
The material is sturdy, it doesn’t wrinkle, and it’s not see thru. It reminds me very much of the famous DVF wrap dresses that are extremely popular, but much more expensive. This is a great staple to have in your closet.
With the black, I do not see panty lines, but I’m not sure if that would be the same case with lighter color dresses.
If you have a larger chest, you will probably want to add a snap to make sure it stays closed properly. This is a true wrap dress, and I think a snap would help guard against any wardrobe malfunctions.
While talking about items that can be business casual, this ruffle neck blouse is made for the office. But I’m telling you, it would work for date night too! All of the pretty details like the split ruffled neck and the slightly poofy and gathered sleeves make it feel special.
I love this pattern, and it actually comes in a couple of more patterns and several solids as well. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
The blouse is DARLING, feminine, and just really pretty. This is “love potion” and I think it’s a hot pink in real life (like in my picture below). It looks like a more muted pink on Amazon, but it truly is a really great hot pink.
It looks awesome styled with my favorite dressy black pants (no longer available) and leopard flats. Since my pants are no longer available, you can click HERE for black pant options from Amazon from the same maker as the blouse.
I first showed this leopard tee back during this summer. Do you remember it? It comes in a 2 pack with the above black tee. You really need to go check out all of the color combinations available! I think it looks great with the black denim and medium wash denim jacket. The denim jacket is a favorite as well. It’s stretchy and has such a cute fit. I’m wearing a small.
Now let’s talk about a handful of Amazon products!
I know many of us have been on SERIOUS organizing kicks, and I’ve been SO HAPPY with the purchase of this 360 degree beauty organizer. You can adjust the shelf height for your personal needs, it spins all the way around, the products are super accessible, and it holds ALL THE THINGS! I highly recommend this baby. Click HERE. I also have been totally pleased with this organizer and this LED makeup mirror!
I bought it all so I could have pretty pictures for my Sephora Haul post, and now I can’t imagine my life without them.
These sheets are truly amazing and an incredible value! And heaven knows we all deserve amazing sheets, especially right now!
They are soft, they are crisp, they are cool, and they have over 160,000 5 star reviews! Everybody loves these sheets, and they are now on every bed in our house. I also bought two sets of twin sheets for when Carter and I went to camp. They are cheap enough to do that! But forget the price, THE QUALITY IS EXCELLENT.
I totally swear by this Fake Bake Flawless Self Tanning Liquid. And I’ve heard from soooo many readers that y’all are super impressed too!
GIRLS. THIS PRODUCT IS FANTASTIC.
It would make a great stocking stuffer!
Second to getting a professional spray tan, this is the best and most natural looking “tan” I’ve ever had. And I realize that we aren’t going anywhere right now, but it’s always fun to be tan. Haha!
It comes with a mitt, you spray the product on the mitt, and then you rub the product on your body in circular motions. The great thing about this tanner is that you can see it going on, so you can see if you are missing areas and then fix them. You immediately see a difference in color, but the tan continues to develop a bit over the next 15-20 minutes.
Click HERE for the tanner. It has a light scent that I actually think smells great, and it’s not glittery. It’s awesome.
The picture below shows the results about 10 minutes after I applied it. WOW, RIGHT? It lasts for about 3 days, and I’m telling you, the color is amazing and so natural looking! Also, the right leg shows 1 application. If you wanted a deeper color, you could just repeat the process! Plus, the photo doesn’t really do the real live difference much justice. I’m telling you. IT’S SO GOOD.
This LED Makeup Mirror is truly amazing, but I’m not sure if you are going to thank me or hate me. I mean, now that we have all this extra time at home, we might as well use it to pluck and pick our faces, right?
The first time I looked into the lit 7x side, I WAS SHOCKED. I might even go so far as to say horrified. #wishiwaskidding
I couldn’t believe how many stray eyebrow hairs I had. But I have to say, after getting over the initial panic, I LOVE THIS MIRROR. The reflection is bright, the lights provide awesome illumination without being too harsh (when putting on makeup), and it looks great on my bathroom counter. I think that EVERYBODY needs this mirror. Treat yourself and/or give as a gift.
Okay, that’s it!
WHEW! I hope you got some ideas and crossed some people off your list.
Have a wonderful weekend with your people, and I’ll see you back here on Monday!
