I Just Got a $150 Amazon Gift Card for My B-Day—Here’s Every Cool Item I Bought

As much as I love receiving a handpicked, beautifully wrapped birthday present, I’m not going to lie, when it comes to gifts I have definitely come to appreciate a boring but brilliant gift card. Sure, it may seem less personal, but isn’t it fun when you get to shop for a little something special of your own choosing? So when I received a $150 Amazon gift card on my birthday this year, I actually got rather giddy.

Of course, there are tons of practical items I can buy from Amazon (the list always seems to be endless), but this time, I decided to treat myself to some stylish fashion basics. I took this as an opportunity to snag a few pieces that have been on my summer wish list—fisherman sandals, tennis whites, and a strapless top to name a few. Keep scrolling to see the items I bought with my Amazon gift card, and then shop more stylish pieces I’m eyeing from the multibrand retailer right now.

Strapless tops have been everywhere this summer, and since I don’t actually own any (aside from one I bought about a decade ago!), I decided to see what Amazon had to offer. And they have a lot as it happens! While there are plenty of straightforward tube tops, I opted for this soft, lightweight knit top with a cool knotted front detail, as it has great reviews and feels fashion-forward and elevated. Not bad for $20! I’ve been pairing the cute top with high-waisted relaxed trousers and jeans this summer for a minimalist-chic look.

I already own plenty of cat-eye and aviator silhouettes, but I’ve had my eye on rectangular sunglasses for quite some time now. This chic black pair stood out for its simplicity and since I have a tendency of losing sunglasses all too often I’m definitely not complaining about the price. 

Preppy tennis whites are getting the fashion treatment this season—the trend was spotted all over the runway and you can’t scroll Instagram without seeing a fashion influencer giving the court-ready look a fashion spin. And the fact that I’m actually about to start tennis classes was a huge impetus to finally plug the trigger on buying a cute tennis skirt. The one I found below is great quality and sits on the waist perfectly. I’ll be wearing this on and off the courts all summer.

I still can’t believe I don’t own a baguette shoulder bag. I’m all about the ’90s minimalist silhouettes trending right now, and when I saw this sleek vegan leather option, I added it to my cart immediately. It may not be Prada, but it sure doesn’t disappoint.

It’s not summer without a handful of linen pieces on hand. On summer weekends, I like to throw on a pair of breezy linen shorts—the kind you’re not precious about and don’t mind running around in. This simple white pair from Amazon Essentials is perfect. Easy to pair with any tank top, button-down or tee. Moreover, they’re super comfortable.
