First up, this cami was the item purchased the most!  With the light weight material, adjustable straps and cute button detail I don’t blame you!  I am wearing it in the light blue, and it also comes in a tan, white and light pink color.  The linen material is perfect for this summer heat!  I have paired it with white denim and cut off shorts so far!  Here is another look I threw on when we were headed out of town to the beach!

These rose gold slides were one of the most clicked on images!  Let me just tell you, they are THE comfiest.  My mother-in-law ordered them in the silver, and loves them.  They also come in a tan, brown and black.  They run true to size and I promise you will love the cushion and soft sole! 🙂

I did a blog post this spring all about great Target swimsuits and these two have been the favorites this month!  They both fit TTS and have excellent coverage in the back!  I love the plunging embroidered suit because it gives a little unexpected deep V but isn’t too revealing at all!  AND still appropriate for a mom at the pool. 😉  The halter top suit is the perfect basic black one piece, that has great support around the waist.

More favorites this month were these floral high waisted shorts, that are perfect for a summer date night or throw on with a casual tee for a day of errands.  I love how the fabric is thin and flowy, so you won’t be sweating in these!  The best part is they are high-waisted and under $20!

The heels have been a favorite since I first posted them in March!  The really are a great pair of nude heels if you don’t want to pay high dollar for the more expensive brands.  These are under $50 and they come in 19 different colors.  Yes, 19!!!  I love that the heel isn’t too high and there is a small cushion on the ball of the foot to give a little extra support.   I did size up a 1/2 size is these for a better fit.

MY MAY FAVORITES

shop the look: J.Crew Factory stripe skirt | pink skirt | navy tee | stripe tank | earrings | DSW wedges |slides 

These skirts are great go to skirts if you need to dress up a little bit, but give little effort.  I tried this pink one on in my latest try-on blog post.  I have had the stripe skirt for over a year and it goes with so much.  I recently added the hot pink one to my wardrobe and love the new scalloped detail on the bottom.

Mother’s Day was a wonderful day!  I mean just look at these little guys!  So much BOY in my house!  I love my new pom pom shorts and you can never go wrong with gingham.  This top is old, but this one is very very similar!

My leather earrings have also been on repeat!  If you haven’t checked out @mcfatherdesigns she is the absolute sweetest and has the cutest earrings!  I gifted my mother-in-law and sister-in-laws each a pair for Mother’s Day!

Pom Pom shorts (come in red, black and white) ***I went down to XS for better fit in these

Beauty Favorites

Lots of Beauty favorites this month that I have been using lately. If you follow along in my Instagram stories you have seen my posts about sunless tanners. I can’t stand the smells, so it is hard for me to find something that doesn’t smell too bad and works. A reader recommended this natural brand from Amazon and I was quick to jump on it. I have used it twice and have loved the results both times. It does help that there isn’t any chemicals in this brand! It is a white lotion, so you can either us a mitt or not, and a little goes a long way. I usually put it on at night and sleep on it. I have white sheets on my bed and it DOES NOT get on your sheets! This one is for sure a good one to try!
If you aren’t up for the lotion than there is always the St. Tropez mousse that goes no easy, but I always use a mitt because it will stain your hands quickly! The smell on this one isn’t too bad either. I have actually put this one on during the day and it was working by the evening!

If you have followed me for a while then you know I am always looking for easier ways to style my hair. I discovered this blow drying tool after a few of my friends swore by it! It is THE best. It blow drys your hair and round brushes it at the same time. It still takes the same amount of time as blow drying, but I am not having to straighten it too.  It also gives my hair the volume it needs without using any other tool! A great investment to try and its under $55!

I hope you enjoyed this monthly favorites post! What is your favorite from May?
