Yay it’s time for my monthly My Style post! May in Maryland this year was weird. Like, really weird. Typically around these parts, May is HOT and humid. But this year, we had something like 19 out of 23 straight days of rain. It was cold and super icky for almost the entire month!
I went through my May pictures and picked three of my favorite outfits to share with you. If you see something you like, I’ve made it easy for you to steal my style with links for each item when still available, or similar styles if they’re sold out. If you want to check out previous My Style posts, you can find them here.
Look #1: Running Fabulous
The Running Top
I don’t usually run in long sleeves, but when I got to Ocean City to pick up my race packet I realized that it was much colder than I had planned for! They don’t sell this one online, but some of my favorite running tops come from TJMaxx and Marshalls. This “I don’t Sweat, I Sparkle” tank top is pretty adorable and I also have a couple from Thug Life Shirts and this “Cardio & Coffee” one is totally on my list.
The Running Skirt
I just love a flippy running skirt, don’t you? My sisters – who actually run to be fast – totally make fun of me, but I don’t even care. Race skirts are ADORABLE! I got this one on clearance at Nordstrom Rack this year, but of course it’s long gone. I do totally love this Trina Turk printed running skirt, but they don’t have it in my size. This black pleated version at TJ Maxx is pretty great if you want something a little more subtle.
The Running Capris
There is nothing worse than wearing running clothes that move all over the place while you’re trying to trot on your way. These are the Soybu Allegro Capris in Dark Forest and I also own them in Pink Halftone. Believe me when I say that they are the BEST that I’ve ever run in and I want to order like 5 more pairs and throw everything else out!
Look #2: Office Polka Dots
I have to wear blazers for work events and I always have a hard time finding one that will fit my figure. Typically there is some sort of weird shoulder pad thing happening, or it just looks like a giant box. I saw this pretty polka dotted version one at Nordstrom Rack one day and love how it is nipped in at the waist and has a little shirred cuff thing going on for a ¾ sleeve look. They still have it in limited sizes here or you can get it in solid black or grey here.
Look #3: It’s a Wrap… Dress
I had to do a marketing video at work that will be seen by an awful lot of people, so I basically tried my entire closet on before deciding to wear this fabulous Boden wrap dress. I wrote all about my Boden experience earlier this month (Trying Boden: Website vs Reality) and this exact dress is still on sale at this link.
Over the past couple months, I’ve read a bunch of posts from other bloggers about how incredible these Ugg sandals feel. They would go on and on and on about how comfortable they are, even with a higher wedge and finally I decided to try them for myself. Alicia sent me them in two colors when she sent my last Trunk Club order and OHMYGOSH are they comfortable and cute! I actually decided to buy both pairs to replace some that recently went to the great shoe closet in the sky. They are a little more expensive at $100, but I can truly say (in a non-sponsored way) that they are incredibly comfortable and I’ve gotten through a 12 hour workday and my feet still felt great. You can find them on the Nordstrom website here.
