May Favorites 2018

Hey guys! How’s everyone doing today? Thanks to all who tuned into my Facebook Live yesterday. I think I added all the links we talked about, but if I missed something, feel free to let me know. If you missed it, you can catch up HERE.

And now it’s time for my May Favorites — these are some new finds and old favorites that I’m particularly loving right now. Bonus! Many of these picks are on sale right now.

May Favorites 2018

one // I’ve talked about this self tanner before, but now that it’s May and we’re finally wearing shorts and short sleeves, I’m using it a few times a week. This is my far and away my favorite at-home tanning lotion, and I’ve tried a ton. It usually retails for $40, but I found it on Amazon for $30, and it’s Prime. WOOT!

two // I mentioned these shoes in one of my daily emails when I discovered them, and then I ordered them when they went on sale. I was thrilled when they came in and fit perfectly in my usual size 8. They keep going on and off sale, and right now they’re off, but I’ll keep you posted!

I was afraid I’d walk out of them, as I have narrow heels and sometimes pumps don’t work for me, but these fit great and are actually quite comfortable. I wore them Sunday to church and then out to dinner after, where I had to walk a few blocks in a nearby town. I didn’t have any issues walking in them, or standing in them for half a day, or with blisters when I got home.

three // This tee is another J.Crew find, and I love it. I know, I’ve talked about it a ton already, and it’s selling out, but it’s such a good fit and so super versatile for layering or wearing alone. For size reference, I have the medium. If you tend to run in between sizes, I recommend going with the larger.

four // This is a cute sweater for spring that pairs well with white or blue denim, and you can dress it up or down. It’s a nice lightweight sweater material, very soft, and not see-through at all. For reference, I’m wearing my usual size small.

Right now this sweater is 30% off PLUS an additional 10% off with code LOVEMOM. See my current Loft Favorites in THIS POST.

five // This openwork layer necklace is one I come back to again and again. I particularly like wearing over a tee with jackets and cardigans, for some reason. It has a nice casual chic vibe that isn’t too try-hard, and because it combines gold and silver, it goes with almost everything.

It does tend to get tangled if you don’t care for it well. You can’t just drop it in a drawer and hope to pick it up and throw it on without some work, but I hang my long necklaces when I’m not wearing them so it stays pretty good that way.

six // Now that I’m breaking out the spring dresses, I’m wearing these Spanx shaping shorts more often. These are my go-to for under all my dresses, year-round, but they’re particularly nice in the summertime when you don’t want to wear tights or anything but you want some coverage.

seven // I styled this print tassel ruana two ways in this post. My favorite is with the white tee and white jeans. I feel like it looks so chic and sophisticated over the monochromatic base layer. I’d probably only wear it with the jean shorts on vacation at the beach or somewhere like that.
