Spring Amazon Finds

Hello friends! It has been a hot minute since I wrote a new blog post. Since the world basically got put on pause last month, the thing that has taken the backseat the most has been this blog. I have kept up the rest of my social media work, but blogging ultimately takes the most time and planning. While we have lots of time at home, I am still working full time, managing my blog, and now also ensuring my son completes school every day. Add to that spring and the start of weekends being consumed by yardwork, and I have never felt so busy.

I did share an Amazon find earlier this week, and you all LOVED the items. I always like to try and put popular items here on the blog, so it is an easy place to come find them later 🙂 I have also been sending out my weekly newsletter, be sure to subscribe here so you never miss my weekly recaps and the best weekend sales!

Spring Finds at Amazon

If you haven’t jumped on the tie dye trend..what are you doing with your life 😉 I am a child of the 90s, and nothing makes my heart happier than wearing clothing that my 8 year old tween self would also wear! You all went NUTS over this pajama set. I sized up to an extra large, which I would suggest doing. You can adjust the strap length, and the hem of the top and shorts has the cutest ruffle detail!

My slippers are only $20 and are so darn cozy. They have rubber bottoms so you can wear them when you run out to grab them mail! And the inside is a memory foam type material, making them super comfy for wearing all day long around the house.

Tie Dye Maxi Dress

If there was a dress that has me thinking spring, this is it! First things first-this dress does run on the shorter end. If you are looking for a floor length maxi, this will work if you are petite, as in 5’4 or less. However, one of my favorite ways to fake it til you make it with maxi dresses that are a little bit short is to front knot the hem. This creates a bit more dimension, and it looks like the dress was meant to be worn that way!

I threw my favorite jean jacket on over the top of this dress, and it becomes the perfect summer outfit for work. When I was pregnant, I wore dresses with jackets on repeat. So darn comfy, and cute!

Office Look

I know very few of us are going into the office right now, and I think it is crazy how much we are all craving wearing some business clothing! These paper bag pants are SO stretchy and soft, and feel like pajamas. I asked you all what your favorite look from the haul was, and this one was the winner by a landslide! I have a large top and large in the bottoms, as well! This outfit is the perfect mix of chic and comfy!

Cinco De Mayo Tee

Did you all know that Lincoln is our Cinco De Mayo baby!? We have never done much to celebrate the holiday before, but you better believe that now every year Cinco De Mayo is a big deal in our house for a different reason 🙂 I needed this tee the second I saw it! It runs loose, so a large fit me perfect. It looks gray online, but it is a true white, and it comes in black as well! I paired it with my favorite jean skirt (it comes in long lengths!) and the best black sneakers.

Cozy Weekend Look

I have shared this hoodie so many times, and I just snagged it in red, too! I size up to an extra large, as it does run a bit small. but oh my gosh, it has the CUTEST details and is one of my most worn Amazon finds. It comes in solids as well as other color block options!

Which look is your fav!? Do you go casual, or have you still been getting ready every day during quarantine? I hope you all are holding up as good as can be expected. I am sending hugs and prayers to you all!

Weekly Roundup

Hello friends, and happy Friday! As per the usual, I am starting out my Friday post talking about the weather 😉 It is supposed to hit 50 for the first time since October this week, and your girl is doing a happy dance! We don’t have much on the agenda, but with it feeling like spring I have a feeling we may start talking about landscaping and our yard goals for the year #adultsohard Before we officially hit the weekend, I am sharing my weekly roundup below!

Four Dresses To Try This Spring

All of the dresses below are from Red Dress Boutique and are SO good. I realized after the fact that everything is blue and/or pink-apparently I know what colors I like! if I had to pick a favorite, I think the belted dress is my favorite-but favorite is a relative term when they are all so pretty!

Shopbop Sale Picks

I typically share affordable items, but I couldn’t resist sharing the Shopbop sale this week. If you have ever had your eye on a designer bag or a high end pair of denim, this is the sale to scoop up some of those items! My shorts below are rarely on sale and are included!

Vine Oh!

I was so excited to try out the Vine Oh! subscription service for the first time this week! They are such a cool concept, and basically combine a wine delivery and lifestyle box into one! They ship quarterly, and you can switch out the address every time, which allows you to get it for yourself, your mom, your best girl friend, etc. Each delivery includes two bottles of wine, and then a box of goodies. This one includes chocolates, stemless wine glasses, some cute wine charms, a body melt (LOVE this one!), and some cute weekly planners exclusive to Vine Oh! Typically each box is $59.99 (with a value of $150+), and the folks at Vine Oh! were generous enough to give me a code to share with you all! When you checkout with code STANGANDCO you get everything I mentioned for just $44.99. That is literally less than the value of just the bottles of wine! If you try it out, be sure to let me know what you think. I always think subscription boxes are so fun-it is like treating yourself to a surprise gift 🙂

On Instagram

How adorable is this skirt!? A fun little fact-I have gotten multiple comments on people liking my new photos over the past few weeks-they are ALL taken with my new iPhone! The camera is amazing, so if you have thought about upgrading, I 10/10 recommend! My skirt is from Amazon and if you are tall, it is a great length! Usually with skirts like this I feel like one wrong move will cause a wardrobe malfunction, but the length on this one is great!

This maxi dress is another Red Dress Boutique favorite! I am feeling all of the spring vibes, and in Minnesota we totally dress for spring before it is officiailly here 😉 At 6′ tall, this dress fits well and has adjustable shoulder straps. If you are a tall girl, this dress is a great option!

I snapped this photo on a day that was right around freezing, but you would never know it looking at it, right 😉 Fake it til you make it! This dress is so cute, and to be honest, when I first tried it on I forgot about the belt. Trust me, the braided belt makes this dress. This also looks so cute under a jean jacket!

Dress // Bag // Sandals // Sunglasses

I just realized this jean jacket has been in pretty much every picture so far-but you guys, it is so good. I went up one size, because I don’t like my jackets being too fitted. That also allows you to layer it over sweaters (I’m looking at you, Minnnesota weather). I am wearing an extra large TALL. My jumpsuit is actually an Amazon find, and fits like a dream if you are tall! So often jumpsuits and rompers ride up because they aren’t long enough, but this one is a great option for long torsos.

Comfy and Affordable Spring Break Outfit Ideas

I don’t know about you all, but I am craving some sunshine! We have not seen a single ray of sunshine through these clouds in over a week, and at this point I am just taking all of the Vitamin D I can while throwing on some self tanner 😉 January is kind of like one never ending Monday, right!? Anyways, all week I have been sharing spring break inspired outfits that can all be found on Amazon! I recently have had requests for Amazon dresses that work for tall gals. These dresses will work for everyone, but tall ladies, if you are looking for Amazon options, this post is especially for you! Keep reading for my affordable spring break outfit ideas!


Spring Break Outfit Ideas

Look 1

This dress is my FAVORITE. For the price, I honestly wasn’t expecting much (it’s only $15!) It is thin and pretty lightweight, but thrown on some seamless nude undergarments and you’re fine. The midi length on this is fantastic, and the straps have the prettiest braided detailing. The braids gather into a racerback in the back, which is fun! The exact one below is a mix of orange, yellow and purple, and there is another option online that is more blue and pink!

Look 2

This dress is the perfect shade of sunshine yellow! I have had bad luck with a few shirt dresses on Amazon being too short, but this one works well! If you are petite this will likely be more knee length on you, but it hit me mid thigh. It passed the ‘bend over’ test, so we’re good! Like all of these dresses, it comes in TONS of colors, but bright yellow is one of my absolute favorite colors and feels just like spring!

Look 3

Okay, this dress just screams I’m at a resort in Mexico. I am in love with the off the shoulder style, the drawstring waist, and the functional buttons down the front. The quality on this one is excellent-it is fully lined and a fantastic length.

White Dress // Similar Sandals

Look 4

Everyone needs a comfy black dress in their closet. I wanted to share this one because it is a bit short on me. BUT, because of how the bottom is cut it doesn’t look too short! It falls naturally off of the shoulder, and has pockets, too! I actually spoke with my petite friend who told me this exact same dress was WAY too long on her-so this one may not work if you are on the short end!

Black Dress // Similar Sandals

Look 5

This dress is the most GORGEOUS shade of pink, and is the perfect example of how a front knot can totally transform a dress. It is definitely the longest of all of the options, so if you are tall this will work with flats. But, the fabric is soft and stretchy and I honestly loved how it looked when I threw the front into a knot! I think I will get LOTS of wear out of this one this summer!

Look 6

Another day, another front knot. Seriously, whether you are tall or petite, a front knot can made a dress of any length more functional, and it is so cute! This dress has a pretty high neckline, and the stripes and colors make it perfect for the summer holidays. I would accessorize with white and blue to get that Americana feel!

Look 7

This last look isn’t a dress, but it needed a share because this item SOLD OUT so quickly last year. It is currently fully in stock, but no joke, once it sold out early last summer, it was gone for the season. The romper is a french terry material, so it is VERY soft. The drawstring waist is adjustable, and the length is amazing. I typically size up in rompers, but there is no need with this one. I am wearing my true size large! You can also snag this is black and a few other colors.

As always thank you for reading! I cannot believe it is the last week of January. Who else is excited for February (and hopefully some warmer weather!?)

Shop My Bedroom

I am going to start adding a ‘shop my space’ at the end of my posts. I have found a lot of people are interested in furniture, bedding, etc. and I so often forget to share these items! You can shop the items in my bedroom below!

New Styles with Chicwish

I don’t think it is any secret that one of my favorite new retailers is ChicWish. I shared some spring favorites recently, and I have absolutely fallen in love with their gorgeous items, and am so excited to share a few new ones with you today! Keep reading for my favorite new styles with ChicWish, and be sure to let me know what styles you would like to see more of!

Pretty Smocked Top

You guys, how gorgeous is this top!? It is plenty long, and the sides are cut longer to give some dimension. I love to style it with a front tuck, but it falls so beautifully that you can wear it either way!

All of the Florals

I fell in love with this pretty watercolor floral skirt the moment I saw it. The website describes it as a maxi skirt, but when I let it hit my natural waist, it felt more like a tea length! I paired it with a white tank top and some neutral heels, and love how classic the whole look feels!

Pretty White Top

Another gorgeous item that I wanted the second I saw it was this white top. I love the cinched waist, the lace detailing, and let’s be real, nothing beats a white top in the summer! I will say it runs small, so if you want extra length or room, size up!

Top // Bag // Shorts // Sandals

The Perfect Romper

I need to start talking about this romper by being transparent and saying tall girls, this will not work for you. I would have disregarded it from my post entirely, but the quality and design is there If this piece worked on my LONG body it would without a doubt be added to my closet to wear out because it is truly the prettiest romper I have EVER worn. If you are petite or have a shorter torso, I cannot recommend this piece more! The bodice is definitely short, but if that is not an issue for you, this is one of the most beautiful rompers you will find!

Maxi Dresses (In Tall!)

I shared this dress over on my Instagram a few weeks ago, and it was a total hit! Not only does it come in multiple colors, but it is also a Chicwish dress that comes in tall! At 6 feet tall, this goes all of the way to the ground on me and is so flattering. The pleated detailing is so pretty, and the design is good for all body types!


All In The Details

This dress you guys, THIS DRESS. It has so many stunning details, and is absolutely gorgeous! From the ombre skirt, to the ruffle detail at the neckline, to the delicate floral pattern, this is one of the most stunning dresses I have ever worn. It is incredibly modest, but still so feminine. If you want a show stopper, THIS IS IT!

I am so in love with all of these new styles at Chicwish. Let me know which were your favorites!
