If you’re like many of us here at the Swift offices, we buy a LOT of things online from Amazon. In fact, it’s rare that we go a week without ordering something. Now, that doesn’t always mean that it’s exciting, but sometimes, we find some things more share-worthy than the usual paper towel and toilet paper order.
So each week, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite finds on Amazon. If there’s something that YOU find that you think we should share, leave it in a comment below!
This week we’re covering how to match HIGHER END (aka Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!) pieces with Amazon finds! We’re mixing some great dresses and business casual with some of our picks from the Nordstrom Sale!
Ultra Soft Lightweight Camisole Tank Top + Ultra Soft Lightweight Hi Rise Shorts + Lightweight, Full Zip Running Track Jacket
This whole look is an absolute direct copy of everything Lululemon. To be fair, the longer inseam biker trend is “in” but I’m just a short girl at 5’3” so I don’t think these would be biker length on taller girls. But, these are a great midi-length for me and so incredibly soft. These shorts are the same material as the Align legging (and the Lululemon dupe I’m obsessed over!) and the overly large pocket in the waistband is a huge plus. I would add that while they are squat proof, this specific light-lilac color is likely NOT sweat-proof. But good news, they come in black and other darker colors. They run true to size (TTS)!
These tanks ($22) are one of my favorite items from Lululemon and this variation is made of the thinner Dri-fit material. I personally think they run slightly large, but the built-in sports bra would be great for women who are a bit more well-endowed.
The jacket is another of my favorites and very close to the Define Jacket from Lululemon. This tan color is a personal favorite since it matches everything and is under $40! If you’re not large chested, I think they run TTS, but I would size up if you need extra space for the ladies!

Casual & Workwear:
Let’s talk the paper bag waist trend. I’ve had the hardest time finding some of these pants that fit me without making my long torso look awkward or flaring out funny. These pants are a great fit (I love the capri length and I rolled up slightly!) and they’re only $29. They run slightly large but it’s a relaxed and comfy fit that’s perfect for work or casual wear.
I used the Lululemon Power Y tank Amazon dupe from the athleisure section as the perfect underneath basic to bring a bit of athletic feel to an otherwise casual outfit. The sneaker wedges are from the Nordstrom Sale this year and the denim jacket (on sale here!) is from last year’s sale. The wedges are SO nice and I love how comfortable they are on my feet!

So I’m excited about both dresses that I’ve found via this Amazon haul. This one is a ruffled tee-shirt style loose dress with functioning buttons on the front. It’s such a light soft “chiffon” feeling fabric. Even though it’s meant to be slightly on the short side, it’s loose fitting and flowy, which is perfect for the hot Austin summers. It’s also double-lined so it’s not see-through. It also comes in a ridiculous amount of colors and it’s less than $25!
If you work in an office, or want to transition to fall, I paired it with the Barefoot Dreams cardigan from the NSale. Is it pricey? Yes, it’s higher than my usual price point, but it is unbelievably soft and the dark grey is a color that will continue to go with everything. Of any of the items that I ordered from the Anniversary Sale, this is easily my favorite investment piece.
These wedges are also hands down one of my favorite pairs of shoes. They’re the perfect height for dresses but also incredibly comfortable. Bonus: They’re SUPER affordable. As it gets closer to winter, I might even suggest a pair of brown booties or tall boots!

Why yes, I did say pockets! This dress is easily my favorite thing that I ordered from Amazon and it’s giving me absolute Madewell feels, for a $22 price point. The listing says that it runs large, but I found that it fit me true to size, with adjustable spaghetti straps and stretchy material around the chest. Unlike the previous dress, these buttons are only for display! It’s the perfect midi length that comes in SO many colors and so cute for summer!
The tote IS Madewell, however, and one of my purchases from the Anniversary Sale. I’ve had my eye on a Transport Tote for awhile and this one is perfect. It’s the best carry-all size for laptops, books or, in my case, thousands of planners.
