As I’m scrolling around on social media or different websites, you know what clickbait just gets me every single time?  The Amazon roundups.  Seriously, I’ll click on just about any “Amazon favorites” list I can find because they just have some of the best, and usually affordable, finds.  I actually recently went back and read my last two Amazon posts (see them here and here), and I still 100% stand by everything I linked.

I still order this safe and junk-free tuna by the case, still LOVE this makeup organizer for home or travel, still swear by these pimple patches, and just reordered these yummy K-cups – just in time for Mardi Gras.  I’m still obsessed with these affordable wool hats in ALL the colors, still stock up on these sweets, and just ordered a second one of these mugs.  So today I’m back with some of my current favorite Amazon finds that I really think you’ll love.  But if you don’t, how easy are Amazon returns, right?

This beyond cozy cardigan that comes in 8 colors (above) – I’ve got a whole slew of black, grey, and other random cardigans, but a couple of months ago I went on the hunt for a great camel-ish / tan one for now and into spring.  After ordering, trying, and returning quite a few, I finally decided to (DUH) search around on Amazon.  I ordered the one above in medium and large and ended up keeping the medium.  I love the super soft fabric, slightly oversized fit, and big pockets.  Plus, it’s pretty much the exact shade of camel I was looking for.  (Now I’m thinking I probably need the oatmeal color, right?)

A daily SPF that Eric and I both love – A couple of years ago, I finally got Eric into a daily SPF habit.  He ends up spending a lot of time on the road in his car for work, so I thought it was important for him to be in a daily sunscreen routine instead of only applying before the beach or outdoor activities.  We’ve used up a ton of tubes from a few different brands, and this one tends to be a favorite because it rubs in easily with no greasy or white residue.  (We also both love this one from The Treatment.)

This flowy maxi that is just begging for spring weather – OK, I JUST got this dress in this week in the navy color and loved it so much that I already ordered a second color.  It’s super lightweight and comfy, has such an easy fit, and couldn’t be more fun for spring.  It hits me right at my ankle, so it’s perfect for pairing with flat sandals, wedges, low booties, or sneakers.  I’ve got a wine-tasting girls’ weekend in March that this dress was made for – stay tuned, I’ll be styling it on the blog soon.

Grip socks to keep that New Year’s resolution going – I’ve been doing Pilates for years (currently loving the megaformer machines and classes at Seafit Studio) and am probably a year or two late in upgrading and generally restocking the ol’ grip socks.  (Where DO they all go, anyway?)  These from Ro & Arrows are super comfy, provide a ton of grip, and are made of breathable, moisture-wicking fabric.  Plus, they’re pretty cute (with more prints coming soon) – perfect reason to stock up, right?

A muscle recovery soak for post-workout soreness – And after the workout comes the old lady, all-over sore muscles, am I right?  (No? Just me?)  While a hot bath is always a favorite of mine, a hot bath with this muscle recovery soak is even better.  The Epsom salt is super relaxing for sore muscles, and the smell of this one with menthol and eucalyptus is also so great for battling a little winter sickness.

The cherry pepper spread I use in (and on) EVERYTHING – I’m a fan of Jersey Mike’s subs and ordered this thinking it would be similar to their red pepper spread.  It’s similar, seriously delicious, and (in my opinion) goes in and on ALL of the things.  It’s obviously great on sandwiches, but I also add it to my Safe Catch tuna (instead of another relish) and usually throw a dollop into tossed salads and quinoa bowls.  It adds a slightly spicy, vinegar-y kick that I love.

The sweetest little beaded bracelets – It’s no secret that I love perusing Amazon for fun bracelet finds – the gold and silver beaded bracelets that I wear almost daily are Prime finds.  This week I found these adorable bracelet sets with tiny star or moon charms, and I can’t find a single reason to try and stop myself from ordering a couple.  (Also currently obsessed with finding cool turquoise pieces on Amazon like this fun ring and this one.)

The bathtub caddy that I’m STILL obsessed with – Admittedly I’ve had this thing for about a year and have shared it on the blog before, but I really just love this bathtub caddy.  The sides of our bathtub slant inward a bit, so balancing products, magazines, or the occasional glass of wine is out of the question.  I’m happy to have this little caddy every time I take a bath and feel like it’s really well-made for the price – ours still looks pretty new.

A Barefoot Dreams blanket for 20% off – I know I’m not alone in this, but y’all, I really just freaking LOVE this brand and their crazy cozy fabrics.  I spend almost every evening at home in this circle cardigan, wrap up in this robe every morning, and drag this blanket from room to room with me like I’m Linus.  (I also still love this little short-sleeved cardigan that you can currently snag on sale from Nordstrom.)  I’m constantly on the lookout for Barefoot Dreams pieces on sale and found my exact blanket on Amazon for 20% off.

A couple of months ago I rounded up a few of my favorite Amazon finds, and I figured it was about time that I give you guys a little update.  (Because let’s be honest, can you ever stop finding new gems on Amazon?  I think not.)  From fashion favorites to low sugar sweets, a really great mug, and even a little something for the pups, here are the things I’m loving right now on Amazon.

This figure-flattering sweater dress – I shared this dress with you guys a few weeks ago on Instagram, and it seems like you guys are loving it as much as me.  (It’s definitely been my most sold piece in the last month by far.)  It’s just super easy and flattering with the adjustable tie waist, comes in three pretty colors, and will cost you less than $35.  With the holidays coming, I always love finding affordable pieces that can be worn a few different ways, and this is definitely one of those finds.

A killer pair of joggers (and pretty much anything Daily Ritual) – I shared these joggers back in this travel post, and I swear, they are SO good.  But since then, I’ve been trying out other pieces from Amazon’s Daily Ritual brand and am obsessed with this line of everyday basics that are much nicer than you’d think based on the prices.  Some other faves?  This dressed-up turtleneck tee (that’s under $20), this tunic tee (so good with leggings), and this easy layering tee are all in currently rotation in my wardrobe.

A goldmine of affordable wool hats – If you scroll through my recent Instagram posts you may notice I’ve got a thing for hats this time of year.  I just feel like they’re the perfect way to complete an outfit…and hide that second or third day hair.  I’m not a fan of floppy wool hats as I think they can look pretty sloppy, so I love that these have a stiff brim, come in a bunch of colors (I’ve got my eye on this army green next), and are all adjustable sizing.  Oh, and they’re all under $20.

This mug that keeps your coffee warm all morning long – You may have seen this mug around the interwebs, and there’s a reason why it’s so popular.  It actually works.  I was gifted one by the St. Regis in Aspen during this trip last year and have been using it so much I decided to Amazon a second one.  I make Eric and I coffee every morning before he leaves for work, and admittedly, I usually catch a few more ZZZ’s before fully waking up and enjoying my coffee.  This mug actually keeps the coffee warm all morning long, and while it’s a smidge pricey for a mug, I think it’s a great holiday gift for the coffee lover in your life.

The little steamer that could – We recently had a guest staying with us who asked if she could use my iron.  I actually had to stop and think if I even still have an iron because I use a steamer for everything these days.  It’s just so much easier to me than pulling out an ironing board.  I’ve tried a few steamers over the years, including a couple of pricier versions, and this one is my favorite.  It heats up quickly, stores easily, and is small enough to stash in a suitcase for travel.

Low-sugar sweets that satisfy my candy cravings – OK fair warning, these sweets are a little pricey, but with just 3 grams of sugar and a whole bunch of fiber per bag, they seriously satisfy my candy cravings during the week.  My favorites are the fish-shaped gummies, and while the texture is definitely different from sugar-filled candies, I think they’re delicious.  (You can also grab these at places like Sprouts or Whole Foods if you wanted to test the waters with one pack.)

An inflatable dog collar and Wilma’s favorite dog toy – Our little Wilma girl recently had surgery to be spayed, and if you’ve got any puppos in your life, you know the cone of shame is really not where it’s at.  This inflatable cone collar is so much more comfortable for her, and in general she didn’t really seem to mind wearing it a couple of nights while on the mend.  We also recently ordered a couple of backups of this bunny toy because for some reason Wilma loves it more than any other toy ever.  Why?  I have zero clue, but it is pretty cute.

The perfect game day sweatshirt dress – Y’all, I ordered this comfy little sweatshirt dress a couple of weeks ago and have been reaching for it nonstop.  It comes in a slew of colors making it perfect for remaining game days around here.  It’s super soft, is a perfect roomy fit (I sized up), and has pockets – so simple and cute with a chic pair of sneakers.

Recent Amazon Prime Finds I’m Loving Right Now

Amazon dress, Ankole clutch, Kaanas sandals | My Style Diaries blogger Nikki PrendergastAmazon dress, Ankole clutch, Kaanas sandals | My Style Diaries blogger Nikki PrendergastAmazon dress, Ankole clutch, Kaanas sandals | My Style Diaries blogger Nikki PrendergastAmazon dress, Ankole clutch, Kaanas sandals | My Style Diaries blogger Nikki PrendergastAmazon dressKaanas sandalsAnkole Living clutchRay-Ban sunglassesGorjana necklace (c/o);  Initial necklaceBeaded bracelets here and here

Not to sound like some sort of naysaying “back in my day” grandpa or something, but if you had told me a few years ago that we’d be able to pay a small membership fee to get almost anything in the world delivered to our door within 24-48 hours with the click of a button, I would have thought you were living in a Go-Go Gadget pipe dream.  And yet here we are, living in the land of Amazon Prime.

I’m well aware that Amazon certainly has its own problems and critics (and rightfully so in some cases), but I have to be honest.  We use it.  Like, a lot.  And even going a step beyond Prime, we live in an area close enough to a distribution center that we have “Amazon Now” which will deliver certain items within two hours.  It’s a wild, wild world.  So while taking a little scroll through our recent orders, I thought I’d share a few things found on Prime that I’m loving these days.

This easy, breezy, under $30 dress – You may have seen a little buzz recently around the #Amazonnightgown dress (made VERY popular by Grace and Hitha and covered by a ton of media outlets) that I’m wearing below, and it’s just as comfy, cool and breezy as everyone promises.  Admittedly it’s really not ideal for those of us who are busty, but I figured for the price, it was totally worth it for hanging around the house or running quick errands.  But then I found the version above from the same brand, and I’m obsessed.  It’s just as easy and breathable, still under $30, and has a drawstring waist for a much more flattering fit.  I love this one so much, I’ve ordered the second color that it comes in too.

The beaded bracelets I’ve worn nonstop – I definitely go through phases with jewelry, and these days I’m in a “more is more” bracelet-stacking, necklace-layering kind of mood.  I especially love stacking pretty glass beaded bracelets, but the good ones can be SO expensive.  A few weeks ago I came across some really great beaded bracelets on Amazon, and I’ve been layering them nonstop everyday.  Especially loving this all gold version (and am eyeing the other colors), this pretty gold and grey one, and these mixed sets.

This no-mess dog bowl – If you have a dog who can’t drink water without making a mess all over the damn floor (we have two of them), this water bowl is a real floor and sanity saver.  The top part of the bowl floats on the water, so the pups can’t dip their whole face in the bowl and proceed to drip all over your wood floors that currently have permanent water stains.  Speaking from experience here, clearly.

Hot honey, tuna…and flapjacks? – Occasionally there are food items that I either can’t find in our local grocery stores or just want to order more of without battling the shopping cart bumper car game that is Costco.  Currently, here’s what I’m restocking.  Mike’s Hot Honey is an obsession of mine on pizza, on breakfast sandwiches, for cooking shrimp, and so many other things.  Safe Catch tuna is pretty much the only brand of tuna I’ll eat these days (and I have it often) because the only ingredient is, wait for it, tuna.  While that may sound crazy, take a peek at the ingredient list on most of the tuna brands at your local grocery store – it’s wild.  Finally, these Kodiak Cakes pancakes on the go are seriously SO good, the best breakfast treat, and they can be pretty hard to find.

The book I’m currently reading – I picked up Me Before You by Jojo Moyes during our summer roadtrip and couldn’t put it down.  It’s heartbreaking, hopeful, and sweet, and once I was done reading it, I obviously needed the second book of the trilogy.  Amazon had Me After You on my doorstep within about twelve hours.  I’m about halfway through it (Why is making time for reading so much easier on vacation?) and am still loving the story.

These sunnies that only look expensive – I’d say about nine times out of ten, if I’m wearing sunglasses, they’re probably aviators.  They’ve been my go-to shade style for years, but sometimes I want to switch things up with an oversized shape or something fun without breaking the bank.  I had seen a few people talking about this $10 pair and decided to give them a try.  I ended up “springing” for the polarized version which set me back a whole $17 – so worth the splurge.

A makeup case perfect for travel or home – My previous makeup bag had definitely seen better days, so I snagged this one during Amazon Prime Day when it was on sale.  Even at full price though (under $20), it’s still a steal.  It’s fully customizable with adjustable dividers, has a zippered compartment, and a covered section for storing makeup brushes.  It’s kept my makeup clean, organized, and easy to toss in a suitcase for a few weeks now – can’t recommend more.

The coziest slippers – After little puppy Wilma ate my last two (not one, TWO) pairs of slippers, I figured I’d get a new pair when she was done with that delightful phase.  A few months later I ordered these, brought them along on our summer roadtrip, and was so happy to have them.  There’s just something about slipping into your own slippers in a hotel or while traveling, and these are seriously cozy.  (I also have and love this pair from Emu.  I keep them in Palm Springs and am always happy to be reunited with them when we head to the desert.)

The pimple patches that always save my butt (and face) – The occasional (or lately not-so-occasional) breakout is so much more manageable with these little magic stickers.  They don’t work for every single blemish, but I’d say they have worked for the majority for me.  I put one on before bed, sleep with it, and wake up to a zit that’s either completely gone or seriously reduced.  I’ve gotten several friends hooked on these too, and the best part?  A pack is only about $4.

My favorite seasonal K-cups (that happen to be completely out of season) – Community Coffee’s Mardi Gras King Cake K-cups are always my favorite around Mardi Gras season, and now, you don’t have to live in the South or even wait for Mardi Gras time to enjoy these.  There are hints of cinnamon and vanilla, and I tell you, they make for one delicious cup.

My Favorite Amazon Purchase of January

And just like that, January is almost done.  And what do you guys think – did it fly by or crawl along?  I’m pretty torn on that one to be honest, and as I type this, it feels like New Year’s Eve was 100 years ago.  As I’m sure lots of you did, I made a few health goals wayyyy back here at the beginning of the month, and how are those working out, you ask?

Well the “drink enough water” thing is still a work in progress (go figure), but in the exercise department, I’m happy to say that I’ve been moving this month.  I’ve been a fan of pilates for years (check out my favorite local studio here), so I took a few classes at the beginning of January.  But when my package ran out and I went to purchase more, I started to think about ways to get in a quick workout at home before taking Weeze on our daily 3-mile walks.

A quick scroll around Amazon and I had these weighted medicine balls and this exercise ball delivered to my door in two days.  Of all the millions and squillions of things I’ve purchased on Amazon recently, these have by far been my favorite.  It’s something easy I can do while the dogs run wild, with the tv or music on in the background for distraction, without ever leaving home.  I’ve loved the weighted balls for both arm and core workouts, and they’ve been so key on the (usually rare) rainy days we’ve had around here lately – with four more coming at us this week.

I’ve found different exercises to do online but also just kind of mimic things that we do with weights in pilates classes.  And so far, so good.  Will I be going back to pilates or Orangetheory classes?  Definitely.  But now I can buy a few less classes and get in a quick workout whenever I can at home.  I’d say that’s a definite Amazon win for the month.  Hope everyone has a great rest of the week!

The Best Flares to Wear Now and Into Spring

Best Free People flares to wear into spring | My Style Diaries blogger Nikki PrendergastBest Free People flares to wear into spring | My Style Diaries blogger Nikki PrendergastBest Free People flares to wear into spring | My Style Diaries blogger Nikki PrendergastBest Free People flares to wear into spring | My Style Diaries blogger Nikki Prendergast Free People flaressimilar teeAmazon sweaterLouis Vuitton handbagGorjana and Gold & Gray necklacesRay-Ban sunglasses

While the skinny jeans in my closet are definitely my most worn and loved, I’ve also got a real thing for a great pair of flares.  I spotted these at the Free People store in Palm Springs (with my size still in stock, naturally) and figured I’d try them on “just to see”.  Fast forward ten minutes later to me skipping out of the store with my new denim purchase.

They’ve got stretch but not too much stretch – so they’re comfortable and hug curves without sagging – and a super high rise.  I’d say they’re pretty true to size.  I normally take a 27 in Madewell’s super stretch denim, but I grabbed these in a 28 because they just felt more comfortable.  They come in 16 different washes (seriously, 16), and some of those washes are available in short, regular, and tall sizing.  And the best part?  They’re under $100.

I feel like styling flares can be a little intimidating, so today I’m sharing a couple of ways I’d wear these, now and into spring.  (Although for the spring look below, I’d probably switch up the long sleeved tee to this easy tank.)  I love keeping them long and pairing with a super high wedge to seriously elongate legs, and personally, I like them with a kimono or long cardigan to keep the lines long.  (But for shorter friends, I’ve seen a simple tucked or front-tucked tee work best.)

It can take a little trial and error, but once you figure out what works best for you, I think you’ll love these.  What do you think – are flares for you?

Happy New Year, my long lost friends!  Yes, I realize we are already halfway through January (WHAAAT?!) and that my last post was wayyy back at the beginning of December, but I can honestly say I have no regrets about it.  Well, that’s not true.  I do wish I had shared more snaps of our holiday home decor because it’s 100% my favorite time of year in our house, but other than that, I’m so glad that I spent the holidays being present and just celebrating my favorite time of year with family and friends.

Things have admittedly changed for me in the last couple of years in the blogosphere, and that’s OK.  I worked hard to build an authentic, genuine following here on the blog, and your support has meant and will continue to mean the world to me.  THANK YOU for following along all these years!  Over the years I’ve probably failed to keep up with some of the blogging trends out there – I NEVER got into Snapchat (still don’t get it), have zero interest in creating Youtube videos, am terrible at keeping up with Instagram stories, and, in general, was VERY late to the Instagram game.  And don’t even try to talk to me about TikTok – I have NO idea what that app is about.  Impeding, maybe, but I’m OK with that too because these just never felt very “me”.

These days, managing our Airbnb property takes up a good bit of my time, and when it comes to lots of events and travel, well, I really just love being at home with my husband and pups.  While I’ve continued to post on Instagram, the blog has been a bit neglected.  But now, the new year is here and it’s time I get back to sharing the things clouding up my headspace – fashion, home decor, and (obviously) the Amazon purchases I’m loving.  My 2020 goal is a handful of posts a month on only my favorite looks, finds, and random thoughts…and the dogs.  Obviously the dogs.

And so today, kicking off my 2020 posts with an outfit full of favorites.  I actually grabbed this dress in the orange color back in late November but decided to swap it once I saw the black color online.  It was on backorder but finally came in, and I LOVE it.  I love the fitted top, flowy skirt, sheer sleeves, and easy floral print.  It’s beyond comfortable, and I’m digging it with booties and a leather jacket now and sneakers and a denim jacket into spring.  Speaking of leather jackets, this favorite with gold hardware is currently on major sale and feels so much more expensive than it is.  Also, if you haven’t checked out these under $20 Amazon hats yet, you’re seriously missing out on a steal.

Happy 2020 and a BIG, FAT THANK YOU to all of you for following along!

Four days of sweater weather in a row, and I’m over here like, where am I?  Not complaining, I’ll take it for sure because getting cozy is one of the things I do best.  Give me allll the sweaters, leggings, scarves, you name it.  Big shoutout to Mother Nature for finally turning down the heat in Southern California.

Since the sweater weather days can be pretty few and far between, I normally don’t buy many new sweaters each season.  The ones I have usually stay in pretty good shape because, you know, I probably wore it once.  But this year, a leopard sweater or sweater dress was at the top of my list, and I snagged this one just in time before it sold out.  Bad news for you guys, I know, but the good news is today I’m rounding up a whole bunch of leopard knits that are totally worth checking out.  (Even if you have to wear it inside…with the AC on.)

While lots of other areas around the country are currently layering, bundling, and cozying up, Southern California is still showing off some warm and sunny shorts weather.  (During the day at least.)  The nights have been chilly enough for sweaters and the occasional fire in the fireplace, but during the day, I’m living for dresses, fall skirts, and my trusty leather shorts.

I’ve loved leather shorts for years and recently snagged this pretty camel pair on Amazon for under $30.  (Size up in these.)  I love them paired with an easy thermal and cardigan and will be wearing them with this cozy little ivory sweater for an upcoming holiday event.  The Amazon fashion finds have been SO good lately, and I’m working on a new Amazon finds post that will go up this week.

Hope everyone has a great week ahead!

I could probably ramble off a million reasons why I love fall – sweater weather, a favorite chicken chili recipe, football season, boots and booties, the countdown to Thanksgiving, all things pumpkin – the list goes on and on.  And somewhere at the top of my list is definitely seasonal home decor.  It’s just so nice having a few fresh updates in our everyday decor, and I tend to focus on our dining room and entryway.

So today I’m sharing a couple of peeks into our fall home decor, and I have to say, it just makes me so happy.  I’ve been collecting things here and there over the years from HomeGoods, Target, Amazon, Hobby Lobby, and other stores, but I’m linking lots of similar finds here.  Also, you can check out other shots of our seasonal home decor here.  What are you guys most excited about this fall season?
