Amazon | Keep or Return?

Amazon try-on haul
Today I'm sharing an Amazon try-on—with a twist! I purchased a few items to share but won't be keeping all of them. Read on to see why (and to see if you agree!)

First up, let's talk about this smocked maxi dress: I was drawn to the vibrant "Marimekko-esque" print. It's an easy to care for polyester with a comfortable smocked top and adjustable shoulder ties. It fits true to size and I'm in a small.

The downside is that I don't think these colors are doing anything for my complexion. The verdict: This is a "return" for me. However, I am tempted to exchange it for one of the other 23 colors! (How did I miss this navy floral?!)

Next we have these smocked linen-look pants. I think these are so comfy and cute for summer! Pair with any white top, graphic-tee, or button down shirt and you're good to go. I'm in my usual size small. Granted, the pants look nothing like the product photo but I still like them. I'm 5'8" for reference. The verdict: KEEP!

These overalls look just like the Free People sun-drenched overalls, but at half the price. I'm in a medium but could have done a small (so I'd say go with your usual size). They're unique yet easy to wear with sandals and a tank or tee. I'm loving the rust color for summer. The verdict: It's a "keep" for me!

Lastly, we have this two-piece matching set in a linen-blend fabric. It features a pretty button-detail down the back and one peplum ruffle on the top. I think this set would be great for vacation; you can also mix and match the pieces. But as much as I love neutrals and beige, this color is making me look washed out. The verdict: Return and order a different color (16 in all!)

So what do you think, do you agree with my decisions? Which pieces would you keep? Which would you return?
