Tuesday Ten: May Style Tips

May has arrived, and so have my monthly style tips! With the weather heating up and plenty of spring soirees on the horizon, I adjusted this month’s fashion must-haves accordingly. Sweet sundresses along with my favorite skirt silhouette are at the top of my shopping list, especially now that we’re entering wedding season. Below you’ll find pieces that are bridal shower and wedding guest approved, as well as trends that I can’t wait to wear well into the coming months. Keep scrolling if you’re in need of some fresh spring style inspiration…

Put some prep in your step via Jillian Harris

1. Put some prep in your step.
Nothing welcomes in warmer weather quite like nautical stripes. Jillian Harris boldly wears hers on an adorable midi skirt. Keep it classic with a white blouse and nude ankle strap heels, and you’re ready to set sail.

It’s safe to say that I love everything about this outfit. Caitlin of Dash of Darling is embracing the off-the-shoulder trend with this fluttery mini dress. Her sunhat and chunky heels are the perfect accessories for an afternoon spent in the sun.

Be a tangerine dream via The Darling Detail

3. Be a tangerine dream.
This year has brought with it some surprising trends—bright orange being one of them! I can’t resist the shade of tangerine that Jessi of The Darling Detail is wearing above. It’s the perfect transitional color for summer and the print of her crop-and-skirt combination screams vacation!

Panama perfection via Damsel in Dior

4. Panama perfection.
My very favorite warm weather accessory has to be the Panama hat. I make sure to bring one to the beach with me as well as all of my getaways. Jacey of Damsel in Dior keeps it casual with a white button-down, dark denim, and strappy sandals. I can honestly say that this outfit combo will be on repeat in my own closet!

Now that you know about my love for sunhats, I love the unexpected cut-outs in this one worn by Kate of Lonestar Southern. Paired with a fun and fringy dress, this ensemble is ready for brunch with your favorite ladies.

Embrace flower power via Barefoot Blonde

6. Embrace flower power.
Spring is the perfect opportunity to break out all of your favorite florals. Amber of Barefoot Blonde keeps it light in her floral sundress and Chloé handbag. Throw on a cardigan like Amber did just in case the air is still a bit fresh. By the way ladies, braids are the best accessory for any ensemble.

Give spring the cold shoulder via Oby Grace

7. Give spring the cold shoulder.
Now that the sun is out more often than not, it’s time to show a little skin! Oby Grace is a girl after my own heart in her off-the-shoulder LC Lauren Conrad dress. It’s an easy piece to cover up a swimsuit or wear out and about!

Structure is everything via Jadore-Fashion

8. Structure is everything.
Now this two-piece outfit is a match made in heaven. Stella of Jadore-Fashion demonstrates that a little structure can go a long way. I love her bold strapless top, plus how chic is the bow in front? With a crisp pair of high waisted shorts and a bold lip, this look can take you well into the summer months.

Shine in a sundress via Gal Meets Glam

9. Shine in a sundress.
Two prints that are on my radar this year: stripes and gingham. Julia of Gal Meets Glam dolled up her powder blue dress with a striped cardigan and gingham slingbacks and all I can say is yes, please! Whoever said that you can’t mix prints obviously hasn’t seen it done this beautifully.

Pretty in pink via Ariana's Stylebook

10. Pretty in pink.
I’m a big fan of monochromatic outfits. Ariana of Ariana’s Stylebook plays with pink in her lace dress, moto jacket, and matching handbag. To break it up a bit she added a touch of gold hardware and a colorful statement necklace.
