Finally! The April Amazon try on is up today! This one took a while to get to because all of the really good pieces I was finding had a later ship date in April and some of it in May. I’m excited for today’s try on with lots of classic pieces you can wear over and over again. I even ended up ordering 2 black dresses! Who am I?! Both are great options that I love though! A few adorable summer tops are included in this try on and one dress you might notice that’s really similar to one from a different retailer. There’s so many items that get the boot, so I decided to include a few that didn’t work at the bottom of the post.
Sizing: I’m 5’6″ around 115 and typically wear a 0-2 and size small in most items. I included sizing of everything in the description and under each picture.
Starting with dresses – a basic black classic jersey dress! This one has the most flattering mock-neck and the length is great. I love how it’s not a super fitted dress that you can wear to work with a blazer over it, as a casual option with a denim jacket or just like this for those hot summer days. I have a feeling I will be reaching for this one quite often. This brand tends to run a tad big so I’m wearing the XS. Sleeveless mock-neck dress (size XS)
You might notice this dress from a different retailer but it’s really this $20 dress from Amazon! I have this one in the long sleeve version and I actually really love the fit of this sleeveless one being a more fitted dress. It comes in a ton of other colors (this one is navy) and the ruching on the side is very flattering. I’m wearing the size small. Crew neck ruched dress (size S)
I had high hopes for this pleated midi dress and it did not disappoint! I really wanted this one in white but it had a later ship date. I’m so glad I ordered the black because I think the black makes a great cocktail dress option to have in your closet to pull out for special occasions. I’m wearing the size small. Off the shoulder pleated midi dress (size S)
Oh this dress! I love a fun off the shoulder dress like this blue one. It’s such a pretty option for spring and summer to wear for so many occasions! I did have to steam this one quite a bit (favorite steamer here) but the tiered ruffles help that situation out. It has a smocked waist line that makes it really flattering and I paired it with these pretty resin earrings. I’m wearing the size small. Off the shoulder ruffle dress (size S) | resin earrings
I think I had a thing for eyelet tops this round. I came across this one for under $20 and I am really impressed with the quality. The collar is really pretty and I love this one as a work option or paired with navy shorts just like I did here. These high waisted shorts have been super popular since I first showed them back in January so I looked for a really similar pair and came across this pair that I’m wearing. I really love how lightweight and moveable they are for only $20 and they come in lots of other colors.Eyelet top (size S) | high waisted shorts (size S) | resin earrings
Up next is the sweetest blue and white babydoll top. Just an easy option to throw on with white denim or with shorts. Sadly, it is low in stock but I’m going to keep an eye on it for restocks. I’m wearing the size small. Blue and white stripe top (size S)
More blue and white but this time as a floral option! This off the shoulder top is really pretty for summer! I didn’t think I would love the length of the top on me but I love it with white denim or think it would be so cute paired with high waisted pants. I’m wearing the size small. Off the shoulder floral top (size S) | earrings
Another pretty floral option! This top has been popping up on my Amazon account for a while now so I finally bought it to try it out. The colors are really pretty and I love this as a long sleeve option. It does come pretty low cut in the front so I made sure to tie the bottom tassel pretty tight so it wouldn’t move. I wouldn’t necessarily wear this one with a front tuck because of how long the tassels are. It’s an all around really pretty blouse and I’m wearing the size small. Let’s talk earrings now! I came across these pretty beaded ones a while ago and then they disappeared. They popped back up recently so I ordered them immediately. As of today, it looks like they keep going in and out of stock so I will keep checking back.Floral blouse (size S) | beaded earrings
I shared this adorable top in stories last week. It’s one of those tops that you want to wear right when you get it and will go with so much! I paired it with navy shorts last week and am showing it with this floral skirt that just arrived today! This is a darling skirt with lots of pinks and greens and I’m wearing the size small.Ruffle top (size S)| high waisted pleated skirt (size S)
Lastly, pajamas! I’m wearing the size XS. Pj’s are something I don’t really buy a ton of and could use a new pair. These are really soft and comfortable! I actually slept in them last night! Cotton pajamas (size XS)

Here are a few things I ordered but did not work:
Ruffle off the shoulder top | Wanted to really love this one but the sleeves on this one were way too large and puffy for my liking.
One piece floral swimsuit | When buying swimsuits I am always thinking, would I wear this as a mom to our local water park and if I can’t wear it, then I’m not keeping it. It’s a very cute swimsuit for vacation and lounging but a little too low cut for my personal preference for swimming with my toddler.
Stripe romper | I’m a huge fan of rompers – casual or dressy. I thought this one had the potential to be a cute everyday type romper but sadly the material wasn’t as pictured.
Swimsuit coverup | I’m always looking for cute swimsuit coverups. I thought this one had the potential to be really cute but it was really oversized and very see through.
High waisted shorts | This one was probably the biggest disappointment! Remember the blue high waisted shorts from the January try on that I mentioned above? When I saw they came in white, I ordered them immediately. Unfortunately, they were really see through so I sent them back. I’m still on the hunt for a really cute white pair of high waisted shorts!
That’s all! What did yall think? Do you have any favorites? I’d love to know what you are loving!
