32 Summer Picks I Found on Amazon That Look Way More Expensive Than $70

·4 min read

Even though summer is looking a lot different this year, all I want to do is wear flowy dresses, tanks, smocked tops, and everything in between. Honestly, I just miss getting dressed in "normal" clothes and wearing them outside my house. So I've really tried to make an effort this last month to wear pieces other than sweat shorts—not just for my sanity and productivity but to prove to myself that my clothes actually still fit. (I may or may not be baking a lot these days.)

It's hard to justify spending a lot of money on clothes right now, even if they do bring me joy. So I've turned to good ole Amazon to feed my shopping urge and make me feel like I'm still filling my closet with seasonal staples without having any buyer's remorse. Here are 32 summer picks I found that look way more expensive than they are (the most expensive item is $70) that I'll happily wear at home and know you'll be happy doing the same. You can thank me later.
