After being an Amazon customer for over a decade, I’m thrilled to work with them today and share my Prime Day picks! Thank you to Amazon for sponsoring this post. Out of curiosity, I did a poll on Instagram and it turns out 80% of you guys are already Prime members! So if you’re in that 20% and thinking about joining, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial (students get an amazing 6-month trial) and start accessing the deals. I’m a last-minute shopper and packer, and the free 2-day shipping (and free returns on apparel & shoes) that come with a Prime membership has saved us on more than a few occasions!
Quick note on my outfit: This maxi dress is a compliment magnet! The design is petite, pregnancy, AND nursing-friendly plus comes in several beautiful prints. I adore how the full skirt flows and moves, and that the front buttons are all functional. I recommend getting your usual size (or size down), as the gathered waistband is extremely stretchy. XS was unavailable via Prime when I ordered, so I got a S which is big on me. The material does shrink in the machine dryer, and a S is floor-length on me post-shrinking with flats on (I’m 5 feet tall). FYI, if you do not see the “Prime” icon next to a specific color or size anymore, it means that Amazon’s inventory for Prime has unfortunately sold out for the time being.
What is Prime Day
Prime Day is an annual 36 hour event where Amazon Prime members can find tons of deals & discounts in pretty much every category! It starts today (Monday, July 16th) at 3PM EST and ends tomorrow night.
Prime Day Top Picks
I usually first head to the Amazon devices section (which has some of the steepest discounts on Prime Day), then check out their fashion & travel department and kitchenwares!
Delsey Helium Spinner Suitcases (Sizes: 21″ Carry-On, 25″ Medium, and 29″ Large)
The deal: 30% off
So stoked to see our go-to checked suitcases on extra sale! The regular Amazon price is already discounted, and Prime members get an additional 30% off, taken at checkout. For checked luggage (which need to survive a serious beating on repeat), these Delsey suitcases have well exceeded our expectations, especially for the price. They’re lightweight, expandable, durable, and roll quite smoothly. We used our 25″ Medium one for years before buying a second one in the same size. The two bags can be rolled together easily back-to-back (see pic)!
If you’re a Samsonite luggage fan, this carry-on spinner from them is also 30% off at checkout!
The deal: $30 off the entry level Kindle, and $40 off the bestselling Kindle Paperwhite
I’m FINALLY getting myself a Kindle Paperwhite after using the free app on my phone for so long! Over the past year I’ve really tried to disconnect from social media and emails before bed and instead try to “unwind” via reading, but when my books are stored on my phone, it doesn’t quite work out. The backlit screens on phones can also strain the eyes before bedtime, so I’m long overdue to switch to a reader device!
Theory Lanai blazer
The deal: 30% off select apparel
I love Theory’s clean, collarless jackets (see similar on me). Their slim blazers in 00 regular usually fit me pretty well in the shoulders and torso, but petites may need to get the sleeves shortened.
New Balance sneakers
The deal: up to 65% off, depending on the style / color / size
My good friend works at NB and recommends the stylish Coast V3 sneakers for casual wear, running, and studio workouts. The black color is the most deeply discounted at $23 (starting in sz 5), but all four colors are at a great price!
6 Quart InstantPot
The deal: 40% off
This is a Prime Day bestseller so don’t miss out if you are interested! We have the 6 quart one and I also gifted one to my mom last year. She literally uses it for every available function including pressure cooking, steaming, rice cooking, and even to make yogurt at home, whereas I mainly use it just to pressure cook stews and soups. I also recommend getting the glass lid (25% off) so you can easily pop it on to store leftovers in the fridge, and also use the lid for slow cooking.
– Spend $30, save $10 or get 30% off select baby products (including Honest, Aveeno, Babyganics)
– Save 20% on Maxi-Cosi carsats
– Save over 20% on baby activity sets, baby feeding products, and these nursery items
– Look out for Prime Day coupons to clip, like 40% off this Honest bath set (just $10 after discounts!)
iRobot Roomba Vacuum
The deal: Save $120
Great gift to self or for the gadget-loving guy in your life!
My Amazon Shop Page
I also wanted to point out another way to shop my Amazon favorites! A while back, I started congregating my most-used purchases over the years into this Shop page and have gotten SO much great feedback from you guys! This page includes my must-have garment care items (like a sweater shaver, petite hangers, portable steamer, etc), fashion finds, and random little knick knacks like my beloved microwave popcorn popper. I’m continuously updating this, so check out the “All Favorites” list to see everything at one glance. Remember to click on the little upper right corner icon for any fit / sizing commentary or my quick notes on each item!
