Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend! It’s a busy one over here, and I’m ready for it all! We’re headed to see Mr. College at OU for a little family weekend of football and food. And likely a few shopping trips, ha! We’re excited to see his house and be back on campus together for the first time since he was a freshman!
I’m also prepping for a big announcement Monday, followed by an exciting week of all new Gibson x Hi Sugarplum styles! Email subscribers will hear the news first, plus have VIP early access shopping, so make sure you’re subscribed HERE so you don’t miss it!
It’s been a fun week on the blog, too, with incredible new sleepwear HERE, and wedding guest dresses HERE. Plus a big Fall Home Tour HERE! And did you catch yesterday’s great gift idea HERE?! Whew, Q4 is off to the races this year!
We blinked and another month has gone by, and today it’s time for your favorite series, my Amazon Fashion Finds! I started these Fashion Finds five years ago, and they quickly became reader faves. It takes some intense digging to find the good stuff, but I love the challenge of discovering such gems!
With the weather finally starting to change, I’ve got a mix of styles for whatever Fall feels like in your area.
Sizing info: I’m 5’4″ 125-ish pounds, and usually wear an XS and 26 jeans. My fit tips and sizing recommendations are included with each description.
Ummm, J.Crew called and they want their sweater back! But seriously though, how cute is this ruffle-trimmed sweater with the button-front? It’s feminine and preppy and soft, and it easily dresses up or down.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small, but would prefer my usual XS so don’t size up.
A similar style, this one with a ruffled v-neck and fun crystal buttons! Dress it up with satin skirts and wool trousers for holiday wear, or keep it dressy-casual with denim. I love the juxtaposition of frilly ruffles and jewels with the distressed denim!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small sweater, but would prefer an XS. Jeans run large, I’m in a 0.
This Haul has a bucket of amazing closet staples, starting with this classic crewneck pullover. Made of the softest yarn, it’s stretchy and relaxed, and so cute worn alone, layered over a collared shirt, or under jackets. Plus, it comes in a range of amazing colors. And as always, I’m wearing the famous Warner’s bra for a smooth shape and comfortable fit.
Fit Tip: I sized up to a Small in the sweater for more relaxed fit.
Stripes are always a good idea, and this mock neck is a lightweight cotton/modal fabric for a soft feel and with light stretch. It also holds its shape, and dresses up easily.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small sweater
Long cardigans are an easy choice in Fall, but I love this shorter style for a fresh look. It’s a chunky knit that falls to the hip, with a bit of sex appeal when worn as a shirt. It’d be super cute paired with a maxi dress for easy transitional style.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS cardigan
Sometimes a girl just wants an oversized sweater and leggings! This cotton blend is soft and stretchy, with a textured ribbing and longer length. It comes in a ton of colors, including some fun color blocked options.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small sweater. Don’t size up if you don’t want the extra length.
This sweater could easily go for $100, for both the style and quality! The material is as smooth and soft as they come, with an easy turtleneck and relaxed fit. I love all the color and stripe options, too.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small sweater, but no need to size up
Another wear-on-repeat closet staple, this mock neck is soft and stretchy and so easy with booties, sneakers, and slides.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS sweater
If you only get one sweater in this haul, let it be this one! I’ve already ordered my second color (black) and know I’ll wear it on repeat until spring. Keep it casual with sneakers, layer it under a blazer for a sporty office look, or pair with trousers for a dressier style. It’s crazy soft and so versatile.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size XS sweater, booties TTS
Tees & Pullovers //
October means Halloween and trick-or-treating, and while I’m not likely to dress up, I do love a good graphic tee to wear that night! I found a few darling options, all super soft with a relaxed fit.
Fit Tip: size Small in all tees
Classic stripes for wearing alone, and under cardigans and blazers. This one is thick and extra stretchy for a little structure. I chose it in school colors for a fun Game Day option.
Fit Tip: size Small tee
Most hoodies are a snug crewneck, but if you prefer a looser neckline, this one is for you! Made of incredibly soft cotton and lined in fleece, it’s both comfy and warm.
Fit Tip: I sized up to a Small for looser fit.
It’s almost jacket season, and I found a winner right out of the gate! This one is a warm puffer in a stylish utility jacket style, and lined in the most luxe sherpa material! Even the pockets are lined. I love everything about this jacket, especially the price!
Fit Tip: I sized up to a Small jacket for layering with sweaters, but didn’t really need to.
Speaking of utility jackets, this is one of the best around. I’ve had it in olive for years, and just added this light khaki color. It’s made of a quality, sturdy cotton canvas, with tons of style detail like a tall collar, optional drawstring waist, and extra pockets.
Fit Tip: I’m in a size XS jacket, it’s generous
I’m channeling my inner Pink Lady with this bomber style, in a fun leopard print with sporty striped trim. The material is a little polyester-y, but definitely a fun, trendy piece that doesn’t break the bank.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small jacket, but would prefer my usual XS
This puffer pops up every year, and for good reason! Nice and lightweight, and fully packable in the small (included) pouch! It comes in a bunch of colors and this leopard, and is under $50!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small jacket
Dresses & Skirts //
The biggest surprise of the Haul is hands-down this skirt! I wasn’t expecting much considering the price, so was blown away by its quality and chicness! It’s a pull-on style with elastic waist, and it feels like luxe silk. The styling options are endless, with everything from graphic tees and sneakers and sweaters and booties, to sassy top and heels.
Fit Tip: I sized up one in the skirt and half in the shoes (crazy comfy, btw!), and sized down one in the blazer for a shrunken fit.
A wear anywhere dress, this one is as comfy as it is chic. Made of a thick and stretchy knit, it has a fitted top with flattering darts, and an A-line skirt with box pleats. It comes in tons of colors and stripe options, and easily dresses up or down.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress
Fall’s version of a nap dress, this one is flowy and light, but in the perfect colors for the season. Add a jean jacket and booties for cooler days.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress
Can you tell I was shopping for Game Day options? This gingham is a flirty little dress, and super cute with a jean jacket and slides, sneakers, or even booties. It comes in tons of colors, so hopefully your school is represented, too!
Fit Tip: size Small dress
This time of year I usually cover my legs or my arms, that way I don’t overheat, but am still seasonally dressed. This tiered dress is a great option for transitional weather, and comes in amazing fall shades. Made of a thick and textured blend, it’s fully lined with a forgiving shape. It’d be cute with sneakers, too.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing size XS dress
This dress had so many great reviews, I had to try it for myself. It’s a thick and super stretchy twill with an asymmetrical hem, fitted top, and full skirt. It’s a little young for me, but a good option for others! Might even make a cute Homecoming dress, no?
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a size Small dress, def size up one
Another day, another lounge set! This thick cotton has a touch of ribbed texture and a wide sleeve. The pull-on elastic shorts have pockets and aren’t sheer.
Fit Tip: I’m in a size Small set
Let’s chat accessories… I found some really great shoe and boot options, along with a few darling bags! The cognac booties are a classic shape with a tighter ankle that are perfect for pairing with straight leg jeans and dresses. I sized up half.
The leopard booties are super comfortable, with great insole support, and a low heel. They sit low on the ankle, and are true to size.
The heels were a surprise find… and are as comfy as they are cute! They’re flattering on the leg, and go with tons of styles. I sized up half.
These accessories were some of my favorite finds for our latest GxHSP Collection shoot (stay tuned Monday for the announcement!). The bag is absolutely incredible, and so expensive looking in person! The earrings are fun and lightweight statement makers.
I wore the shoes in both this must- have color and the nude with most of the dressier styles. They are super flattering on!
This is actually last week’s Monday Mail Day, but the bag and strap combo is too good not to share here! Is it me, or are you getting Gucci vibes, too? And the faux-fur leopard throw… trust me, you and everyone on your gift list will love it! (See more Monday Mail Days HERE.)
So once again, Amazon delivers the goods! So many great finds and stylish pieces, don’t you think? And of course I wore the Easy Does It Wire-Free Bra with just about everything. Don’t we all have at least one of those happy bras by now?!
I honestly love everything I shared (I only share the good stuff!), but if I had to narrow it down, these would be my Top 5:
