Happy Prime Day! For the next two days Amazon will be slashing already really low prices for their annual Prime Day! I've scoured the women's fashion section (my favorite section to always shop on Amazon) to find some really great deals on classic wardrobe pieces. All are under $50! I recommend shopping sooner rather than later as deals come and go the next couple of days, and some reach a limit of purchases. You can click the items below to be taken directly to Amazon! Good luck!
Life gets so busy! I mean, can you really believe 2019 is already half way over? Between thrifting, listing, shipping, blogging and then starting the process all over again, it can be hard to find time to try new beauty and skin care products. I’m looking for something that is super easy to apply, and if I can even use it while I'm sleeping, even better right?
I’ve worked with skin care company VIIcode before, and I was excited to try out more of their products! My favorite hands down is the oxygen eye mask for under eye circles. The masks contain vitamins, antioxidants, proteins, botanicals, peptides, and fatty acids (all the good stuff!) that totally revamp and recharge your under eyes to make you look more awake and refreshed. I love the cool gel of the masks that sticks and conforms to your under eyes, they feel so soothing as soon as I put them on!
The best part? It is totally recommended to wear these eye masks while you sleep! You literally get prettier while you snooze. Despite being the craziest sleeper out there, the eye masks still managed to be all in one place! When I took them off in the morning, I really did see a noticeable difference in the color and size of my under eye circles. The line between under eye circle and cheek was a lot less noticeable on me.
Another product VIIcode sent over is their new oxygen hydrating eye spray. Similar to the oxygen eye mask, this spray goes on cool and feels really refreshing. I actually have been keeping it next to my computer for those long hours of listing and writing. I like to spritz on a few sprays when my eyes get tired from focusing on the screen for too long.
If you are interested in trying VIIcode eye masks for yourself, and getting rid of under eye circles while you sleep, you can check out their site and products HERE. You can also use code SYDNEY to get $5 off your order now through 7/31/19!
*While I was paid for this post, all opinions are my own.
I'm all in for this high waist trend I've been seeing everywhere! They are so feminine and create a great hour glass look while also hiding all those extra tacos... I've been looking for a high waist jean short that feels great and is long enough to where I feel like I'm not always adjusting them. I couldn't believe it when I found this Madewell jeans over 50% off!
BP Bodysuit [new, $12] Madewell Perfect Jean Shorts [new, $29] Valentino Rock Stud Dupe Flip Flops [new, $19] Zara Straw Beach Hat [new, $20] Chanel Cat Eye Sunglasses [secondhand, $30]
I own a couple pairs of Madewell jeans, and looove them. They are so worth the price! They are stretchy and form fitting without stretching out, and have a really long life. If you are looking to purchase a new pair, you can bring in an old pair of jeans (doesn't have to be Madewell!) and get $20 off a new pair! They use them for insulation for Habitat for Humanity, so you are helping those in need as well!
Anwayyy, the shorts are just as great as the jeans I have owned. Like other Madewell jeans, they fit very true to size. I am wearing a size 27, so I recommend going with the size you normally wear.
I'm practically living in these tank bodysuits this summer. They are light and airy, and make all my outfits looks seamless. They come in multiple colors and patterns, so I recommend stocking up because when you spend $50 at Nordstrom Rack you get free shipping! The fit is a bit on the tighter side and because they are thong they come up on high on your hips, so I recommend sizing up one size. I own them in size small and medium, and I find the medium more comfortable.
And of course I love my Amazon designer inspired pieces at a fraction of the price! I've had this Hermes inspired double wrap Apple watch band for 6 months now and it still looks brand new! I get compliments on it all the time. Also loving my rockstud flip flops that look JUST like the Valentino ones, but under $20! Both are prime on Amazon, aka free shipping and free returns, so there is nothing to lose!
This weekend we got to spend the most amazing, relaxing time in Pismo Beach! Between the cafe and spa time I wanted a really easy + cute beach-y look that took as little time as possible. AKA a big floppy hat to hide second day hair and a cute pair of flip flops!
In all honesty, I don't shop at Forever 21 that much. Their clothing tends to not be well made, but sometimes you can find a gem in the rough. This dress is that gem!! It is linen and really well made. Plus it is adorable and so comfortable! I love the midi length, but it is still breathable and light. I've linked the dress I'm wearing along with another similar option, you can shop by just clicking the pic! I'm wearing a medium, the dress runs a bit small.
The beach hat I'm wearing is Zara, but I've found a few other similar, cute options all under $20 above. One is under $10 and from Nordstrom!
Lastly, my VERY favorite piece from this weekend are these Valentino inspired rock stud flip flops from Amazon. They look just like the real deal!
I wore them all around the resort and on the beach. So comfy and well made -- there have 4.5/5 stars on Amazon! Plus they are a fraction of the cost of the Valentino flip flops. Depending on the size and color you want (there are many color options!) they range in price from $12-$19. AND they are prime so you get free fast shipping! I will be wearing these all summer for sure. You can shop directly below!
The Burberry nova check pattern is classic and so recognizable. It is also preppy chic and will really elevate your outfit! I always totally related to Blair Waldorf, so I've naturally been growing my own headband collection. I'd been on the hunt for a nova check Burberry headband, and came across this one listed for $50 + free shipping on Mercari. I offered $42 and the buyer accepted! Such a steal for a designer headband in excellent condition.
It's hard to come across authentic designer pieces online, but I actually found two super similar Burberry headbands through The Real Real that you can shop below! They have their own authentication experts so you know you are getting the real deal. Plus TRR is having 20% off with the code REAL right now! These are the only two being offered on the site right now, so I recommend scooping it up before someone else!
But I totally get that spending that much money on one single headband can be out of reach. Below I've linked some other cute plaid check alternatives that also give some serious Burberry vibes! You can shop by just clicking the pics below.
