May’s Top Ten

Is it just me, or does anybody else feel like May didn’t even happen?? Where did the month go?! This post is going up a few days later than anticipated, but it’s the end of the school year and this teacher is swamped! So ready for summer vacay! Shop May’s top ten items below…many of which are some of my top summer wardrobe picks!

10. Slide Sandals 

These sandals were also a top seller last month! I have been wearing these so much lately! They are super comfortable and go with everything. Plus, they are a dupe for a much pricier designer pair! If you haven’t picked up a pair of slide sandals for this spring and summer that should change! It’s my summer shoe essential!

9. Ruffle Sleeve T-Shirt Dress

At just $20, this little t-shirt dress is a steal! I love the ruffled sleeves and of course the stripes! It’s the perfect little dress to wear in the classroom or on the weekends!

8. Polka Dot Skort 

I took this skort to Mexico and have worn it a few times since! I have been loving this color for summer and the polka dot print and ruffle add a flirty touch that I adore! I can’t wait to wear this on an upcoming date night!

7. Knotted Slide Sandals

These knotted slide sandals come from one of my FAVORITE shoe brands, Soludos! They make the best summer shoes, and these are no exception! I love the color of these too…it goes with everything and can look a little dressier depending on how you style them! Plus they are under $100!

6. Cutout Peplum Tank Top

This top is linen, stripes and everything nice! From the flattering peplum fit to the adorable cutout detail in the back, this top screams summertime! I love pairing it with my Taudrey ‘Sweet Slide’ Necklace. This customizable necklace looks good with EVERYTHING! Get 10% off your purchase with code ASHLEY10.

5. Wide Leg Crop Pants

These pants!! This is their second month as a top seller! I shared these pants on the blog a few weeks ago. I’ve worn them on vacation and in the classroom. I love a piece that is comfy and versatile! What’s even better? That they are on sale for $30!

4. Embroidered Peplum Tank

This sweet little embroidered tank is what summer dreams are made of! It’s available in 3 colors and another fab sale find at under $30! Pairing it with another summer essential, my Clare V. bag!

3. Smocked Romper

This smocked romper is coming to the blog soon, but it became a top seller after I posted this flatlay! I LOVE this color for summer, and the ditsy floral print is so cute! Bonus? It’s only $45!

2. Tank Shift Dress

I’ve shared my love for this tank shift dress multiple times, including in this blog post.  This dress is SO good! A comfy and classic piece that can be taken from the classroom to the weekend, which you know I love! This dress is available in 7 great colors, but this exact color is on sale for under $35!!

10. High Waisted Crochet Swimsuit

This suit might be my favorite suit I’ve picked up this year. I LOVE the fit, the crochet detailing, the sweet tie top and the price tag! This exact suit combo is currently on sale for just $30! Hello, sweet summertime steal! Get the high waisted bottoms here and the tie top here. Check out the other combos for this suit here.

Summer Trend: Off the Shoulder

Look 2:  Striped Pom Top // Denim, also love these // Drop Earrings // 

Straw Hat // Clutch // Espadrilles

As trends come and go, there is one trend I am excited to see sticking around…off the shoulder! While I love a good off the shoulder top year round, there is nothing better than baring a little shoulder in the summer time. It’s a great way to show off that sun-kissed skin without showing too much, and as popular as it has become, there are SO many options for great off the shoulder pieces! 

I always find my cutest off the shoulder pieces in the trend section at Nordstrom! I love that they have a wide variety of unique off the shoulder picks that don’t break the bank! They add new arrivals daily, so I have plenty of options and am always adding to my online cart! 

I recently picked up two new off the shoulder pieces that are perfect for summer! You might remember this romper from a few posts back. I was so in love with the fit, that I had to pick it up in this fun palm print, which screams summer (it comes in a midi dress and slip dress too!). Pack it for a beach vacay or wear it to run errands, it’s an easy, breezy piece for those hot summer days! 

This top rolls two fun trends into one…off the shoulder and poms! It’s great for pairing with jeans or shorts and is only $35, which is such a steal!! It also comes in the cutest black and white gingham print!

Check out a few other off the shoulder pieces I am loving!
