Summer Trends on Amazon Prime

Hi my name is Brooke and I have an Amazon Prime problem...whew, that felt good to get off my chest :) But really, what did we do before Amazon Prime? I love when I find a good deal and I love it even more when it's on my doorstep in 48 hours or less. 

Today I'm going to share some of the hottest summer trends that I've found on Amazon.  Most of them are almost identical to designer items but a fraction of the price!

My two favorite finds of the summer are this lemon print kimono and bamboo arc bag.  These two items are my all-time best sellers since I started blogging - they're THAT good!  {As a friendly reminder, I get a small commission when you use my links to make online purchases.  I could not be more grateful for your support!}.

I love that this kimono can be styled several different ways - over a dress, as a swimsuit coverup, or over jeans/shorts/skirts - and the print is so fun for summer!

This bamboo arc bag is like a conversation piece - it's so unique.  I carry it often and always get so many compliments.  It's to the point that when I wear it, my husband makes a bet with me on how many compliments I will get {I always take the under...and I always lose}.

I also found a great designer dupe for my Steven Greece slides that I'm wearing in the pictures above {and wear literally all the time}.  While I do not own the dupe, I've heard really good things from other bloggers.

Keep reading for more great summer Amazon finds.

All the Lemon Prints: 

I can't get enough of the lemon prints this summer - especially since I'm headed to Italy in a few weeks {bring on the limoncello!}.


I don't know why, but I hate spending a lot of money on swimsuits.  The trends for swimwear seem to change every summer, so I would much rather splurge on something more classic.  I have found some of the cutest swimsuits on Amazon and they're all under $30!.  My recommendation is to ensure that you read the reviews before purchasing to learn about quality and sizing.  The first one below is probably my third best seller fro my blog.  It is very flattering, super comfortable, and comes in several colors {for reference, I am wearing a size medium}.


I love wearing kimonos as cover-ups and Amazon has TONS of cute ones for under $20.  Below are a few of my favorites.

Straw & Bamboo Bags: 
Straw and bamboo bags are all the rage this summer - especially the circle ones.  They are so cute and go with EVERYTHING.   But, this is another item that I don't like to splurge on because they can only be worn in the summer and are very trendy.  The bamboo bag that I always carry looks IDENTICAL to the Cult Gaia designer bag with a $168 price tag {compared to  $40 from Amazon}.


While I do have a couple pairs of designer sunglasses, I would much prefer to try out the latest trends on a $10 pair!


I found some great designer sandal dupes.  The best find is the nude block heel sandal below.  They look very similar to the $1100 Valentino Rockstud Sandals. 

Tassel Earrings:
If you've been following along for any amount of time, it's pretty obvious that I LOVE tassel earrings.  I found some super cute ones for under $10 below.

My biggest piece of advice when buying anything off of Amazon is to read the reviews! I find it most helpful when reviewers post pics of the item - that is the best way to tell what it will look like in person. If something has bad reviews, or no reviews, it's not worth taking a chance on {trust me, I've learned the hard way}.  The good thing about Amazon Prime, though, is that returns are easy-peasy!
