amazon sweater try on session!

I have an epic Amazon try on session for you today. I've maybe said that before but this time I really mean it. I went a little overboard with ordering sweaters from Amazon thinking I would likely only show a few here and keep even less.  Well I'm in big trouble because I love them ALL and minus a little sizing problem with one - I can honestly say I love them all. I am going to have a really tough time deciding which to keep!

I found several options that will work really great with leggings this fall if you are still loving the athleisure look these days. I know I still am digging it. But I also styled each sweater with jeans if you want something more pulled together or are looking for some casual work looks. Really there is something for everyone here and not only was I super impressed with the quality in person, but the prices are just crazy good too!  I can't wait for you to check these sweaters out.


(above & below) khaki turtleneck ribbed high/low sweater (lots of colors available)
Sizing: This runs very oversized, I went down a size to XS.
Thoughts: This sweater is GORGEOUS in person and to be honest, quite different from the photo. I am IN LOVE. It's soft, stretchy and not too thick. The ribbed fabric is super flattering as well with great drape. This color is a creamy white in person but called "khaki" online. It works so well with leggings (above) OR jeans (below).
Keep or return? This is a definite keep. I can see getting lots of wear out of this and the price is great. 

Styled with:



(above & below) black turtleneck ribbed high/low sweater (lots of colors available)
Sizing: This runs quite big, I went down one size to XS.
Thoughts: This is the same sweater as the white above, I don't usually order items in multiples, but it was worth it for this one! I LOVE the black and also see getting SO much wear out of both of these sweaters. 
Keep or return? Keep!

Styled with:



(above & below) grey v-neck ribbed sweater (lots of colors available)
Sizing: I went with a small and it's way too big, I suggest sizing down.
Thoughts: This is really beautiful in person. The fabric is very soft and the v-neck is beautiful and not too dramatic. The tunic length is another one that looks great with leggings or jeans.
Keep or return? Return. Unfortunately this one is too big, learn from my mistake ;)

Styled with:



Sizing: Quite oversized, but I went with my usual size small and it works.
Thoughts: This is another that is so much more beautiful in person than I had anticipated. The chunky knit is just beautiful while not being too heavy and the floppy cowl neck is so pretty too. It's another super versatile piece that works well with leggings OR jeans.
Keep or return? Keep. Although I was only going to keep 2-3 sweaters here, this is getting very tricky. I love them all!

Styled with:



(above & below) long grey cardigan (lots of colors available)
Sizing: This runs quite large, I went down a size to XS.
Thoughts: This cardigan is fantastic. I wore it straight out of the box last week for an evening soccer game. I love the ribbed pattern and it looks much more expensive than it really is. Again, it works really well with both leggings AND jeans.
Keep or return? Keep!

Styled with:



Sizing: This runs true to size. I am in my usual size small.
Thoughts: Another total winner. This sweater is soft, great quality and such a cute cut with the bubble sleeve and mockneck.  It looks great with jeans and would work equally for more casual days or even dressed up for the office or zoom calls.
Keep or return? This is a keeper for me, but again, I'm trying not to keep them all... it's going down hill fast ;)

Styled with:




(above & below) camel fitted crewneck sweater (lots of colors available)
Sizing: This sweater runs true to size. I am in my usual size small.
Thoughts: This is just another really fantastic piece. And it's under $20 which is crazy good. It layers well or works great on it's own. This is another piece that can be very casual with jeans or dressed up with a blazer for the office or zoom calls.
Keep or return? Again, I don't see how I can return this. It's just too good! 

Styled with:



(above & below) striped mock neck sweater
Sizing: I went with my usual size small. True to size.
Thoughts: Sheesh. Another really great one. I was a little curious what this would be like in person because the stock photos are a little off, but it's really good you guys! Soft with gorgeous stripes and the gold button detail at the neck is really pretty although I admit its difficult to see in these photos. 
Keep or return? Gosh, this is another one that I love way more than I thought I would! It's difficult to see returning it - especially at this price!

Styled with:



I also grabbed these gold multi sized bead bracelets (above) and these gold two sizes bead bracelets (below) after seeing similar sets for 3-4x the price. I personally like the bottom set better - I think they are the better quality of the two and fit better. But I do love the really bigger options in the above set.  Both are super affordable and you could mix and match them too!
