Good Monday morning! Today I’ve rounded up my May Favorites. These are some new finds and old favorites I’m particularly loving right now.
one (full outfit details HERE) // This dress is a bit of an investment, but I have a similar one by the same designer that is going on its fourth season. I wear it often during the spring and summer, and it still looks like new.
I recommend sizing down in this dress; I’m wearing the XS. My denim jacket is old, but I love the sandals I’m wearing here too, and they’re true to size.
two // I’ve been looking for soft cup bras since my breast reduction surgery (I’m not allowed to wear underwires yet) and this one is very comfortable and gives a nice shape.
I would recommend this for small to average sized bra sizes; it would NOT have worked for me prior to my surgery. I have the medium, for reference.
three // I’ve been using this mineral powder foundation off and on for years, usually on the days when I want a more natural look, although it’s buildable so it can provide medium to full coverage. I like the Latte color for summertime.
four // I recently picked up these Spanx shaping shorts for wearing under more form-fitting dresses. They have really good tummy control, and I also like how they shape the rear and smooth out the old saddle bags. They also have a high-waist style that I’d like to try.
five (full outfit details HERE) // These shorts are really good for those who like a 5″ inseam, and they’re currently on sale at Nordstrom! They run true to size; I am wearing the 28 here, but I recently ordered the 29 because I’m feeling kind of puffy these days and I could use the extra wiggle room.
six (full outfit details HERE) // I’ve been living in my Vuori favorites since my surgery, and the Performance Joggers are on regular rotation. I have them in Black, Shade Heather, and Terracotta Heather. They also come in long lengths!
I particularly love the Terracotta Heather for spring; they pair perfectly with grey and white tops, and I can throw a denim jacket on top when I want to level up the look a bit. These are true to size, or size up if in between; I like the medium for a more relaxed fit.
seven // I ordered this belt from Evereve, and it’s such a nice versatile shade — something in between tan and taupe. I wear the S/M, for reference.
eight // This is my favorite summer sunscreen. It sprays on evenly, and it smells wonderful.
I have the Jacqueline, and I like it with casual looks, but it’s pretty boxy. I wanted one with more structure for wearing with dresses, and the Helena has the perfect fit. It also has a little more spandex for extra comfort.
It has tons of pockets for organization, plus it’s lightweight and durable. It comes in taupe and black, and you can see more pictures of the inside organization at Hobobags.com. (See more of the outfit at
eleven // I’ve had this t-shirt for two or three years now, and it still looks great. I like the rolled edges and the shape of the v-neck, and it’s a really nice weight — not too thin but not too thick either. I have the small, for reference.
twelve (full outfit details HERE) // I should have included this jacket in my May Favorites as well, but this picture is about the jeans. I love this slim straight style for casual everyday looks. They have a 27 1/2″ inseam with a 13″ leg opening and a 10 1/2″ front rise.
They’re spendy, but I’ve tried so many, and none have the fit and feel of these. The denim is so soft and comfortable, but it doesn’t bag out. (The fabric is 93% cotton, 5% polyester, 2% elastane.)
thirteen (also at Dillard’s & Nordstrom) // These are selling out but if you can find a pair, they are so very comfortable, and I love this turquoise for a change. The come in neutral colors as well, and they’re true to size; I have the 8, for reference.
fourteen // Caroline and I both love this No Makeup Eyeshadow by Perricone MD. It gives your eyelids the perfect natural finish for those days you want a barely there makeup look.
fifteen // Finally, these sandals are so good I have them in Light Natural and Black. I love the studded details, and the smooth sole is super comfy. They’re true to size, or size up if in between.
And that’s it for today!
