What I Was Loving In May

Hello June, and hello HEAT.

Summer weather is coming in strong with today being one of the hottest (and most humid) days we’ve had yet. I can’t say I’m excited about it, because heat means dealing with a car that has finicky AC and sweating til I’m a puddle. It also means bugs and I’m definitely not a fan of bugs. BUT the new month means I get to share a round-up of what I was loving last month, and that’s always fun! Keep reading to see what I found most fascinating in May!

What I Was Loving In May What I Was Loving In May What I Was Loving In May What I Was Loving In May What I Was Loving In May

Favorite clothing items

I’ve found myself reaching for these pants even more than when it was “pants season!” They’re a looser fit, so they don’t make me sweat when it’s hot outside, and they’re great when I don’t feel like taking the time to shave. 😂

You all know that yellow is kinda my obsession lately, so of course this darling dress has been on repeat lately! Honestly, it’s such a good one!

The top I’m wearing in this post is actually a new favorite! I haven’t worn it a million times yet, but I know it’s bound to happen. It’s so stretchy and comfy – and you can’t beat the cheery rainbow stripes!

Favorite accessories

This gal is pretty dang happy that hoop earrings are back in style. They go with literally everything, so naturally when I saw this set, I had to snag them right away. Now I wear them every day!

I’m not a big fan of sandals, so instead, I wear slip-on shoes! This pair is insanely comfortable, totally adorable (such a conversation starter), and really affordable! I got them last year and they’ve been making a serious comeback this season!

If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you could predict this one! I’m all about a good straw bag, so naturally this one has been paired with just about every outfit lately!

Favorite skincare and makeup items

I brought this eyeshadow palette with me on vacation to Florida – and used it literally every day. You can combine the colors any way you want and they always look good. Urban Decay always knows the way to my heart.

Need a skin refresh? Spritz a bit of this product on in the middle of the day and watch your skin literally glow!

This exfoliating cleanser has become an obsession lately. The exfoliating beads are so gentle and make my skin feel like absolute butter! You also just can’t beat the price!

Favorite books

I’ve been on a kick of re-reading my favorite series. So naturally, I picked up this series again and fell in love with the storyline just like the first time I read it!

Sometimes I just need a reminder to be thankful! This book really gets me in the feels every time I read it. Have you read it yet?

Favorite TV shows and movies

Gosh, I’m so bummed all my superhero shows are on hiatus. But in the meantime, I’m thrilled that Quantico is back for season 3 – and the newest addition to the team is an actor I’ve actually met! How cool is that?

I’ll be totally honest – I haven’t seen any new movies this month. But I’ve been on a comedy kick. If you haven’t seen any of the John Mulaney specials on Netflix, you gotta get on it right away. I’ve never laughed so hard (I nearly peed myself at one point)!

Favorite food and drinks

Guys – I can’t stop eating Chipotle. Honestly, it’s an addiction. What’s your go-to meal from them?

Aside from that, my number one snack has been popcorn! It’s such a guilt-free snack!

Drinking homemade mojitos like there’s no tomorrow (my family has nicknamed me “bartender Stephanie” and I’m not mad about it).

Favorite music

Charlie Puth‘s “Voicenotes” because every song is a freaking BOP.

The new single by Noah Cyrus & MAX called “Team” (so dang proud to be on MAX’s street team).

“Bobby Tarantino II” is my favorite album from Logic yet. He’s a legend.

Favorite blog posts

Bright colors have been taking over my blog – so obviously this post is quite the fave!

I’ve never had so much fun shooting photos as I did for this post! Plus, Meredith Anne Photography really slayed me with her photog skills!

I miss the beach so dang much, so this post has a special place in my heart!

Your favorite blog posts

Not surprising at all, you guys were thrilled I finally wrote a new #WeddingWednesday post, so this one got a lot of love!

Apparently, you love yellow as much as I do, because this post was another favorite!

Favorite spots in RVA

This spot is a forever favorite, but let’s just say I filled up an entire punch card in the month of May alone because I visited it so often!

Most of you know that I’m a massive macaron fan, so when I discovered that this new spot had some really delicious macs, I was sold immediately!

    Crazy how fast each month just keeps flying by! I’m ready for June, but NOT the hot weather… at all! I am loving this outfit so much, it’s so much fun.

    Yum, Chipotle sounds so good… I haven’t had it in a while, but I always get a chicken bowl. & popcorn is seriously one of our FAVE snacks as well.

    xo, Lydia

    Hahah you sound like my fiance. He absolutely loves Chipotle and gets it almost every day. I personally don’t really like it much because it isn’t really seasoned to my liking (Louisiana girl!). Popcorn is pretty delicious though!

    omg I LOVEEEEE that t-shirt babe! I need to get it! So so cute. Can’t believe we’re well into June now – and that 2018 is officially more than half way over. Time flies! I am a big fan of UD eyeshadow palettes too – they are so pigmented and colors are always on point! Great faves babe xx
