May Instagram Recap


fashion blogger mia mia mine instagram outfitsTime just seems to be speeding up lately, and I can’t believe that we’re already almost half-way through the year! Last month, I traveled to Santa Barbara – it was so nice being able to shift gears and switch out of my winter attire into more playful, summery pieces. I’m always looking for an opportunity to look cute, and May just presented an opportune moment with my getaway trip. I was thrilled to return home to mild temperatures (similar to that of early summer), which meant that I could keep warm weather vibes going strong. If you need a replay of my favorite looks, I’m sharing them below and breaking down every detail!

1. Edgy Layers

Leather might sound too hot for summer, but it can work in the form of a dress with cutouts. The best thing about this one is that it also comes in yellow! If you want to soften things up, be sure to add this unstructured green trench coat.

2. Monochromatic in Santa Barbara

This entire outfit has been a best seller all month long. Not only are most of the pieces affordable but they can be re-worked into multiple looks down the road.

3. Laidback Look

I practically lived in this Amazon workout set the entire spring season. It’s the easiest and most comfortable thing to throw on. To make it more presentable when I’m running out, I usually just throw on a blazer and sneakers.

4. Spring Jumpsuit

Karen Millen’s current collection won’t disappoint. I picked up so many new pieces last month – and this jumpsuit is one of my favorites. The double breasted buttons and split hem give it a look that sets it apart from other one-pieces.

5. White Denim

You guys know I live for white denim during the warmer months. I love how WHBM adds a touch of edge to their white denim styles with zippers. It offers a nice way to toss up your basics.

6. Spring Casual

The best spring and summer outfits are uncomplicated and effortless. Nothing defines that better than an oversized knit sweater, clean denim and sneakers.

7. Loose Tailoring

I love scoring chic, budget-friendly finds as much as I do designer pieces. Two of my latest purchases are this Topshop shirt and these Nordstrom brand heels. When worn together, they just pop!

8. Date Night Ready

If you’re shopping for understated dresses that look good anywhere, this Walmart one is worth exploring. The halter neckline and body-hugging midi fit feel so in-the-moment. It’s one of those pieces that you can wear at work, on the weekends or on vacation.

9. Casual Vibes

The fashion item that I get most excited for once it warms up is a cute statement top. I just love how they instantly dress up a pair of jeans. This Astr the Label one highlights the season’s best details from pretty puffed sleeves to ruched details and a smocked back.

10. Feels Like Summer

For those days when you want zero thinking and minimal layering involved when getting dressed, you need a matching set. I just picked up this one (here and here) from Express and it’s going to become my new summer uniform.
