Amazon Try On Session and Home Finds

Today I'm sharing a few favorite finds from my Amazon try-on session I posted in my stories this afternoon. I have a few fashion pieces that will be great to wear around the home while we are still working our way through COVID-19.  And I've also added some of my favorite home finds that have been very helpful to over the last 6 months. I even included a few of my favorite plant accessories that help me keep my plants alive and vibrant.  

If you didn't know already, I have an Amazon Storefront where you can always find all of my favorite picks that I have either purchased or that I'm thinking about purchasing.  Anyways, let's get started!

I've been looking for a striped sweater similar to this one for a while now, so needless to say I was pretty happy saw this online. This sweater is extremely soft and fits true to size.  I'm wearing a small here and I think it fits me perfectly.  I just paired it up with these similar jeans and leopard flats.

This is one of my favorite go-to styles for the fall season.  You can easily dress it up with the right jewelry pieces and booties or heels.  Or you can dress it down with some cute white sneakers. This dress also comes in a shorter option in case you don't want to wear a midi dress.  This dress runs true to size and I'm wearing a medium here. I styled this one with these earrings, this necklace and similar booties.

This sweater is great alternative to all of the expensive sweater jackets that we normally see at most retailers.  This one is $35 and it comes in about six colors.  It a little oversized, so you will need to size down at least one size. I'm wearing an extra small here and I ordered oatmeal color. Styled with the boho midi dress from above and an old hat from Nordstrom.  I linked a similar one here from Amazon.

These are hands down the most comfortable joggers that I own.  I can't believe how buttery soft they are and the waistband doesn't irritate my stomach either. These pants have just the right amount of stretch so they aren't see thru if you bend over.  These run true to size and I ordered the heather dark charcoal.  I styled it with this striped tee (similar here) and my Miller sandals to run my errands for the day. 

Next up are a few of my favorite home items that I use on a regular basis.  
  • Back and Neck Massager: This back massager has been one of my favorites especially on days I have a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders. This one also heats up to help ease my tight muscles. This would make for a perfect holiday gift for men or women.
  • Milk Frother: I use this milk frother every day for my coffee and I'm never looking back.  This little gadget whips up the perfect froth and heats up the milk to just the right temperature. 
  • Portable Phone Charger: The best thing about this charger is that the cables are already attached to the base. I never have to worry about bringing additional cords with me to charge my phone.
  • Magnetic Measuring Spoons: This magnetic gadget solved the mystery of the missing measuring spoons and got rid of that silly ring to hold them together. I also love that the spoons also fits inside most containers and it stacks together so conveniently.

Next up are a few of my favorite plant accessories that I use to keep my plants vibrant and healthy. These little gadgets will be helpful to any plant mom out there. 
  • Plant Mister: This cute and affordable plant mister gets the job done and looks good while doing it.  I just use the mister to add extra moisture to my plants each day and they seem to really like it. 
  • Soil Meter: This meter does exactly what it says.  I use this mostly to measure the water levels in some of my larger pots and planters. Time and time again, this gadget has saved me from overwatering my plants and potentially killing them.
  • Cool Mist Humidifier: Humidifiers add just the right amount of moisture or humidity to the air to help conserve the plant's moisture by lowering the evaporation rate.  I wanted something small to keep near my plants and this one worked perfectly for me. 
  • Watering Can: This watering can is just the right size for me and my plants. I love the look of this can and how durable it is.  It comes in this beautiful emerald green, a ruby red and a sapphire blue color too. This can is only $10 which is a bonus. 
  • Owl Planter: I love checking out Amazon's selection of planters and pots, so when I saw this one I had to get it. I've picked up a few other favorites earlier this year like this, this and this.

The Inside Scoop on the Lilly Online Sale - Sept. 2020



Happy Saturday Friends! I'm so excited that the Lilly Online Sale is almost here.  l hope that this post will serve as a resource for you while you navigate the upcoming sale.  I'm so honored that the Lilly Pulitzer team asked me and a few other influencers to share this exclusive news with you all again. And it's because of you that I'm able to share this exciting announcement, so thank you very much for all of your support. Now here are a few tips to help you shop the sale:

What is the Lilly Online Sale?

The Lilly Online Sale is the same thing as the After Party Sale (APS) that we are all familiar with over the past several years. Lilly Pulitzer changed the name from the After Party Sale because this sale will be ONLINE ONLY.  Due to COVID-19, Lilly Pulitzer is following the CDC guidelines regarding safety, since it isn't feasible to the stores to accommodate the large crowds that the sale usually generates.  

This sale is a semi-annual event where Lilly Pulitzer places items on major discount, usually 30% - 50% off their original price tags! Hundreds of items are included in the sale, but inventory sells out very quickly. If you're looking for dresses for you next special occasion, a cute top to wear in the  office or work from home, or even loungewear or workout clothes, then the Lilly Online Sale is the best time to grab all things Lilly Pulitzer!

When is the Lilly Online Sale?
The Lilly Online Sale begins Monday, September 14th around 8:00 am (ish) EST and will run through 11:59 pm EST on Tuesday, September 15th. 

Be sure to bookmark the Lilly Pulitzer website now, so you're ready to shop bright and early on September 14th.

How to get ready for the Lilly Online Sale?
Be sure to have a Lilly Pulitzer account set up and make sure that your shipping, billing, payment information is correct.   If you don't have one yet, then head over to the website now to create an account.  If you set up your account ahead of time, then you'll save a ton of checkout time and increase your chances of getting everything in your cart.

How to shop the Lilly Online Sale?
Once the sale gets started and you enter the Lilly Pulitzer site, you are automatically placed in the virtual line. No matter how high your number is, please DO NOT REFRESH your browser. You will loose your place in line and will be moved to the very back of the line. I also wanted to let you know that you can only check out once during that session. After you check out, then you’re placed back at the end of the line. 

Quick Tip: If you’re desperately looking for a certain item, then try using multiple devices - phone, tablet and laptop.  You can also ask your friends/family/husband to get in on the fun to help you.

Will styles and sizes get restocked?
The short answer is NO! Once an item sell out, it is usually gone for the remainder of the sale. However, you can try calling signature Lilly stores and Lilly retail stores to see if they will ship the items to your home. You can also check out a few other retailers for price matching options like Zappos, 6pm.com, Nordstrom and Amazon.

Quick Tip: Be sure to check the Lilly website a few times during the sale, because Lilly is going to release 2nd capsule on Tuesday, September 15th.

A Few Other Helpful Tips:

Set a Budget - Be smart and set a budget for the sale. It's easy to get caught up with all of the fun pieces when the sale goes live.  However, unlike many other sales this one is FINAL.  So be sure to pay attention to how much you want to spend and how much you can spend. There is no reason to go into debt or rack up your credit card bills for this sale.

Make a Wish List - I think that creating a wish list is helpful because it helps you stay on track with your spending.  This time around, I'm only looking for a few items - this dress, these leggings and this top. Once I get those in my cart, then I may look at some accessories as gift ideas for the holidays. 

Know Your SizesSince I wear Lilly a lot I don't worry too much about sizing when I order online. Certain items do run a little big and that's when I rely on the review from other customers! For reference, I’m typically a S or M in tops and a size 6 or 8 in dresses at Lilly. If you’re unsure about your size, then you can review the size chart HERE! Also note that if you purchase something that doesn't fit, you can try to resell it to other Lilly lovers on Lilly Facebook groups, Poshmark or eBay. 

At the end of the day, just remember that it's just clothes and there will always be another sale.  So don't worry if you miss out on this one. If you are shopping the sale, then be sure to wake up early, grab a cup of caffeine, take a deep breath and have fun!!!
