It’s time for my May Favorites — some of the makeup and wardrobe items I’m particularly loving right now. These are my must-haves for spring!
I can’t believe today is May 20th. This month has flown for me, despite the extension of our stay home orders. It’s been unseasonably cold for the most part, but we’re finally getting some warmer temperatures, and I’ve been able to break out some of my spring and summer clothes this past week.
also wearing: Tory Burch court sneakers
one // These are my favorite shorts right now, and I’m so bummed they’ve already sold out. I don’t know if it’s because they’re having issues with their supply chains due to COVID, or if they just weren’t planning to keep these in their summer lineup, but it’s a bummer because they’re really good, and the price is right.
two // This is my go-to lip liner. It goes on soft and smooth, and you can build out your lips if you want the appearance of a little more fullness. Pillow Talk is such a good neutral color, and I use it under all of my lipsticks and glosses.
I wanted to call attention to it this month because I’ve started pairing it with the MAC Lipglass in All Things Magical and bypassing the lipstick step. It’s the perfect neutral lip for summer. (See #ten below.)
three // I can’t believe this JLS reader fave is still fully stocked, and it comes down to $10.80 + free ship with code ALLIN. A lot of ladies have purchased the red one and love that color as well.
I would say it’s true to size, but some say it runs big and needed to size down. You can leave it out or front tuck it, depending on your body type and the proportions of the rest of your outfit.
also wearing: Sam Edelman slides
four // I’m loving these white crop straight jeans with some moderate distressing for an ultra-casual vibe. Size up if ordering; I have the 29.
five // These are my favorite summer sandals right now. They’re so comfortable and easy to walk in, plus the stud details are on trend.
I like silver studs on the medium natural leather but they also come in several other colors, and some of them have gold studs.
six // I’ve had a lot of bags and dark circles to cover up lately, and never have I been more thankful for this concealer, lol!!! It goes on smoothly and blends in easily and has great coverage. I use color #4.
seven // I’ve found myself wearing this Kendra Scott cuff a lot lately. I love the mixed metals and the feminine filigree design, plus it’s substantial enough to make a statement and doesn’t require any stacking or mixing and matching.
eight // My go-to self-tanning lotion for years, this product goes on smoothly and evenly and lasts several days or up to a week if you keep up with it.
I usually apply it two or three days in a row and then start going every 2 or 3 days to keep it up. It does have a mild scent, but I don’t find it unpleasant. See my tips for applying self tanner like a pro.
also wearing: P448 sneakers
nine // These jeans are spendy, but they have an amazing fit and feel — like I’ve been wearing them for years, right out of the box. The wash and distressed details are perfection.
I got mine on sale, but unfortunately they’re back to full price at the moment. I’ll keep an eye on them and let you know when they go on sale again.
also wearing: J.Crew roll-cuff linen tee
eleven // Finally, this linen henley has been super popular among JLS readers, and I’ve been wearing mine every chance I get. As of this morning, this pretty pink has been restocked in all sizes!
It’s 60% off plus free shipping with code ALLIN, bringing it down to $13.80. It runs true to size; I have the small.
