Amazon Top Sellers from August

Amazon is the shopping destination that most of us turn to when we need something quickly but don’t want to leave the house.  It’s also a great source for clothing, home decor, and other miscellaneous things you never knew you needed.  Things can be hit or miss and sizing can be unpredictable though, so I always appreciate an honest review before I make a purchase.  Here are some of the top Amazon products I shared in August that y’all loved the most!  Be sure to check out my “Amazon August” highlight on Instagram for more info on the things I’ve shared this past month.  I’ll create a new “Amazon September” highlight for September too!  I also updated my Amazon Shop (lists curated by me!) daily, so be sure to check there frequently for all things that I’ve purchased as well as things that have caught my eye.

These pillows are incredibly comfortable and since switching over to them I’ve been sleeping better than I have in a long time.  The same can be said for Tom!  I’m very picky about pillows and hate when they’re too fluffy or too flat, and these are a perfect middle ground.  We’ve switched 4 of our pillows in the house over to these and plan to replace the rest soon.  $39.99 for a pack of 2.

These cane and rattan boxes with a hinged glass lid are some of my favorite things in our home.  They come as a set of two and are perfect for corralling things.  The square version is only available now (I have both the square and rectangular versions), but I have one of the rectangular ones on my bedside table to hold my vitamins, night creams, lip gloss, hair ties, face wipes, etc) and I just added a square one to Tom’s bedside table.  I use one to hold sunglasses in our entryway, and one is used as decor on our bookshelf.  They come as a set of 2 (one slightly larger than the other) and they are so pretty and practical too.

The high-rise leggings I’ve loved for years and years are still a top seller and they remain one of the most worn items in my wardrobe.  I have them in so many different colors but black is my most worn.  They run small so I size up 1 size to a medium.  If you’re pregnant I’d go up 2 sizes from your normal size.  They’re fantastic for the postpartum phase too because the waistband is smooth and forgiving.  They have side pockets on the legs that I throw a phone in when I’m wandering around with the kids and I even hold my phone there when I run.  Can’t recommend them enough!  I share a lot more about my love for them (as well as photos of me wearing them while pregnant and postpartum) in this blog post.

With hot summer weather I retired my leggings for a bit and replaced them with what I call “warm weather leggings” aka high waisted bike shorts!  These are exactly like the leggings above but a shorts version.  Same sizing guidance as leggings too, I go up 1 size to a medium.  I run in these, life weights in these, and wear them around the house.  I also wear these under dresses!  Heather Coffee is my favorite color under dresses because it’s closest to my skin tone.  The pockets are so handy when I don’t carry a purse because I can put my phone in the leg pocket and you’d never even know it was there.

If my girls are wearing bows there is a 99% chance their wearing one from this set of 20 hair bows for $9.98.  They’re the perfect 4.5″ size, you get 20 different colors, and they’re not so precious that you have to worry about them getting messed up.  We now own two sets so that both girls can wear the same color at the same time if they want to.

I wore this Packable Sun Hat with Lanyard so much this summer!  Great for windy days at the beach, boat rides, and for when you think your hat may get wet.  It’s super affordable and versatile!  When it wasn’t windy I’d just let the lanyard hang behind my neck.

I never knew that organized batteries could bring so much joy!  Our batteries were always all over the place but now they’re all organized and in one place thanks to this $19.99 Battery Organizer.  It comes with a batter tester too!

These High Rise Elastic Waist Running Shorts are comfy and flattering!  I have them in black but they come in a number of colors and are under $30.  They run small so I sized up 1 size to a medium.

A friend wore this short sleeve waffle lounge set to my house the other day and I immediately ordered it!   I got the green color and my friend had on the navy color.  She looked pulled together was totally comfy too!  Definitely size up 1 size, I got the medium.

The girls wore these dresses a few days ago and they look so much more expensive than they actually are ($14.99).  Peter Pan collars are the cutest!  They run true to size.

If you’re looking for a great roasting pan, look no further than this Extra Large Sheet Pan.  It can roast a ton of veggies and we have one at home at at the beach house we share with my parents.  I use it almost daily!  I also have the jelly roll size, which is handy for smaller batches.

I seem to wear this Sweater Tank in Beige at least once a week now (it’s more of a cream, in my opinion).  It’s SO flattering!  I sized up 1 size to a medium.  Only $21.99 but feels much nicer.  Just make sure to wear a bra that has straps you can crisscross so that they aren’t visible.

Just like the sweater above, this Sweater Tank in Khaki is stunning, especially when paired with white jeans.

When I don’t wear bike shorts under my dresses I’ll wear these Seamless Slip Shorts because they’re lightweight, very smoothing, and particularly great under lighter colored dresses.  They come in nude, black, and white and I have 2 of the nude pairs.  Size up 1 size.  Only $13.99!

I’ve had this $24.99 Blue and White Kaftan for nearly 2 years and it’s still a favorite for when I want to look elegant while still being comfy.  It’s one size fits all and great as a swim coverup or as a dress.  I wore it to dinner in the Bahamas and also wore it to the beach!  I have both of the colors below but currently only the lighter blue one is available.

I got these Fidget Popper Toys for the kids and they enjoy playing with them when they’re in the car or waiting somewhere.  They’re pretty satisfying to pop even if you’re an adult!  They come as a 2 pack and there are a number of different options.

My girls both have this Unicorn Dress and the sequins can switch from gold to silver.  It’s cute and fun so its both mom and little girl approved.  They do run a bit short, so size up if in doubt, or just add bike shorts and it’ll be like a tunic.

While we were in the Bahamas I wore a pink one piece I got a Nordstrom Rack a few years ago, and while it’s no longer available, this Amazon Plunge One-Piece Swimsuit looks SO similar and a follower of mine told me she has it and loves it.

Smocking is so popular right now, and I loved wearing this dress on a date night a few weeks back.  I have it in 2 colors and it’s very comfortable and runs true to size.  This style and color will transition nicely to fall!
