Before we leap ahead to June, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite outfits from May – this year and last. I always enjoy seeing how other style bloggers and friends put their pieces together. This inspiration allows me to better shop my own closet – creating new combinations with what’s hanging right in front of me. I hope by sharing what I wore, you too will find a few new ideas to take back, and remix your own closet. As always, if you ever have any questions on what I’ve put together, or would like an opinion – feel free to drop me a line, down below in the comment section.
When I look back at May, the earlier part of the month was definitely all about denim, as the weather was slightly unpredictable. As we move towards June, both this year and last, I see I start to break out the skirts and dresses, as the weather heats up. I don’t usually take photos of my work wear looks, as they don’t really change all that much (and honestly, I can wait to kick off my pumps in exchange for sandals – the minute I walk in the door!). But for you working moms out there, I have a few new looks, along with some date night looks, to share this month.
Let’s take a look!
Hudson ‘Mia’ dark flare jeans with Caslon button down tee.
I LOVE this tee, as it reminds me of James Perse. Available in more colors.
You can read the full review, and see it on at different angles in this Dressing Room Post, HERE.

So there you go!
Do you have a favorite look?
A few of my faves were the all black Bailey44 LBD and Rebecca Taylor crop jacket (I love that piece!), the Ella Moss python print jumpsuit and the Current Elliott shift dress (it’s so comfortable)
Anyone else finding they are transitioning into skirts, as the weather heats up?
Anyone else ready for school to be out, and summer to begin?

That denim shirtdress with the white Wide legs pants has to be my Favorite! I have never thought to do this and it would work so well with my shorter dresses for work. Thank you 🙂
Hi Candace! Thank you for stopping by! I do love a dress with pants for the reason you mentioned. I am not a huge fan of my knees (I know wierd) and so when dresses are shorter, especially in the spring before the summer glow sets in, I pair them with a wide leg pant. I also have long legs so dresses hit me on the shorter side anyway, and when I sit down I feel a bit exposed 🙂 I also like a dress paired with a skinny pant or capri. Just think of it as a tunic. It’s just another way to stretch our wardrobe!The key is finding a pant that lies flat on the waist – so it doesn’t stick out and mess with the lines of the dress. Have a great week!
I am a anything with pockets fan so i really like that light colored skiRt also the black and white outfits are so versatile. Honestly i like everything you posted ! In my mind i even combined some of them in a different way. The dresses with pants are doubLe duty on a trip with a few tops along. I like a shirtdress opened up for a light jacket with a tee and pants. Great summer tips. Thanks !
That pocket skirt has been a hit with readers. I saw it on a woman at a coffee shop and tracked it down on a resale site. What luck! Its super comfortable with an elastic waist and the shape is so forgiving. Black and white has always been my go-to for work wear and nighttime. Ill have to try the shirt dress opened as a jacket – great idea! Thanks for dropping a line! XO

So stylish! great outfits!
That skirt with the massive pockets is wild.
I’m also loving that denim top with the tie at the waist.
With the summer heat that has arrived I’m all about the summer dress or skirt now.
You’ve got a great sense of personal style.
Hi Suzanne! I am happy to hear you like the skirt with the pockets – A few other readers liked that one as well. It was a little out of the box for me, but it is so lightweight and easy for summertime. I saw it on a woman at Peets Coffee and had to have it. AN older style, I tracked it down at POShMARK – only one available and my size, what luck! I too am all about casual dresses and skirts right now (its in the 90’s!). I just reorganized my closet and realized I am lacking in everyday casual looks like this one. I Tend to get heavy in Wear-to-work looks and dresses that are not all that casual. Have a great weekend!XO
I love the way you rock the wide leg trousers! All fab look, Suzanne. Thanks for linking up, xo
Thank you Patti! I have a thing for wide leg pants and denim 🙂 Thanks for hosting the fun link up! xx

Hi Suzanne — I am loving these outfits but the one that I’m the most smitten with is the denim on denim. I’m not typically a fan of that, but this outfit is wonderful. you don’t say anything about those two pieces. could you tell me who makes the jeans and where i might find them?
