Today’s post is the first in a new series where I’ll be sharing the capsule wardrobe items I wore most during the month and how I wore them. First up, May! I can’t believe it’s almost over. The month flew by. We had special celebrations like Mother’s Day and an end-of-year sports banquet. There were brunches and other fun activities and lots of bipolar weather. I’m still getting used to wearing jeans at work. Here are the 12 staples I wore most this month and how I wore them.
1. White jeans
4. Jean jacket
I love to wear white jeans when I want an outfit to look a little more sophisticated, especially at work. Right now I’m wearing them a lot with this striped button down, jean jacket, and mules for that transitional period between spring and summer. I’m linking to the exact Madewell jeans I’m wearing here. So good.
This adorable cardigan from Target is great for early to late spring. It adds an extra layer for warmth as well as a bright pop of color. I’ve been wearing this with every color blouse because this light blue feels like a neutral and my raw hem jeans. I love showing a little ankle especially for spring and summer with these jeans. They really show off my mules!
I’ve been wearing this for every special event since April. It’s long, which means I can wear leggings underneath on those unusually cold spring days, and the floral print pattern makes you feel warm inside even when it’s cold outside.
8. Bright skirt
10. Nude flats
Bright skirts are my go-tos during the spring and summer. Once again, this bright pink feels like a neutral to me. It can handle almost any color top and even something patterned like this leopard print sweater. I’ve been wearing it with my white button down and nude flats.
11. Striped shirt
My striped shirt works for just about any season. I feel put together in it no matter how I wear it, but lately I’ve been wearing it with layers like this army vest.
12. Chambray shirt
It’s been warm enough to break out the chambray shirt without a sweater, but I’ve been wearing it with a scarf lately my office is already a freezer.
