May Must-Haves

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I spent Saturday celebrating an early Mother’s Day with my mother and family enjoying brunch and a local rendition of Mama Mia (which was fantastic!). Yesterday I battled a nagging headache, but with a non-stop rainy day, I didn’t mind the chance to slow down and just rest. I’m feeling much better today, thank goodness, and ready to tackle another busy week!

I wanted to start off this week by sharing some staples that I feel are quite beneficial to have in your closet. I own everything below (well, this dress is in the mail because it’s finally on sale) and everything you see will be on heavy rotation through this month and beyond. You could almost use this as the basis for a capsule wardrobe if you so desired. I could easily (and will be) mixing and matching it all in the coming weeks.

I always love a simple, classic top, but this one ranks higher than I ever expected. It also looks great under this denim jacket which I’ve had since last year. It’s a bargain for the quality! This other jacket, which you’ve seen me wear, can be found here at over half off at the moment and all sizes are stocked. There are so many cute slides/mules available right now, but I narrowed down my favorites and have already been getting a ton of wear out of them all (see below). Finally, I caved and bought a ‘fanny pack‘ and it turns out it’s the cutest, most practical accessory ever! I’m always running into stores with my phone, keys and wallet in hand, so having this around my waist provides the perfect space to allow me to be hands free! Always helpful when kids are in the mix ;) Plus, it’s on sale!
