Spring & Summer Essentials

Hi friends! Happy 1st week of May! There are so many things happening this month: State Testing for the kids in school, Cinco de Mayo, & Mother’s Day! I wanted to share with you some of my Spring & Summer go-to pieces. Now is the best time to stock up on these essentials before Summer arrives!

These shorts are SO pretty and easy to dress up or down!

Do you prefer to wear bright colored shorts or shirts? I wanted to show you how you can style these beautiful scalloped shorts with my favorite everyday V-neck shirt. You can also create a similar color palette with these white studded slides or add a pop of leopard 🙂 . Which is your favorite style? Left or Right?

Another wardrobe staple of mine are these cotton shorts! I have them in several colors (seen above & I also have them in a light blue and bright pink). They come is a variety of lengths too (3.5″, 5″, and 7″). I prefer the 5″ length.

You can wear a classic tank with these shorts and just add a little sass with some studded sandals!

I have been eyeing the kitten heels from JCrew & Sam Edelman but they both have a higher price tag! These kitten heels I found at Belk look just like them and they price point is so much better! I always go up a 1/2 size from my sandals (8.5) in dress shoes (9). The kitten heel still looks dressy enough to dress up or down and it’s more forgiving on your feet 😉 .

With Spring coming, so does the rain! How cute is this leopard rain jacket? It also comes in solid colors and other patterns. I tried this jacket in 3 different sizes before I finally found the correct size for me (medium). I originally tried a Large and it was huge! Then I tried a Petite Medium which fit but it was a little tight in the shoulders. I finally settled on a regular Medium. So, if you have more board shoulders like I do (even if you’re petite) you’ll want a regular size but size down 1 from your normal size.

These quilted rain/gardening boots are not from Belk but they are so cute! I love that they go up to my mid calf making it easy to wear them with pants or jeans!

I know some of you are still experiencing colder weather, so I wanted to include some pieces that I love if you live in a cooler climate.

I also own the vest in black.

What are some of your go-to Spring, Summer essentials? What inseam length do you look for in shorts?
