Top Eight // May 2018 Favorites

Unlike other months, I had a hard time finding eight things I loved this time. Weirdly, I've been online shopping nonstop, but have seen literally nothing I really like! Is this happening to anyone else right now? Whenever summer rolls around, I'm super eager to get new things as I always feel like I have no suitable clothes/beauty products for the warm weather, but this year nothing is jumping out at me. However, as always, I've pulled together my top eight items of the month, even though I'm not sure they will be staying in my life for weeks to come.

  1. I used to hate leopard print, but recently I'm so obsessed! I have been looking at leopard everything – from dresses, to pants and tops. To finally jump on board with the leopard trend, I bought this sheer top from & Other Stories. I originally saw this top on Laurie Ferraro and love the way she styled it, although I think I will wear it for more of a night-out look. You'll see how I style it on my Instagram soon!
  2. Taking care of my skin is super important to me, so each summer I'm always checking out new sunscreens. Sometimes, sunscreens make me breakout so I'm super picky, but I recently fell in love with the Supergoop! Everyday Sunscreen. It doesn't leave a white-cast on my skin and my makeup still applies well on top, I really enjoy it.
  3. Okay – this is a product I'm still deciding on. I've been testing the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (oil free) for a week now and keep going back and forth. Some days it doesn't get greasy and gives me the perfect glow and tint, but other times (even when I set it the exact same with primer, translucent powder and setting spray) it makes me crazy oily. I really do love it on the days where it's not greasy though so I'm going to keep giving it a try. I'll update this post if I end up not liking it.
  4. I'm starting a new job (post on this coming soon!) and have been looking for dresses that I can wear to work since wearing jeans in the summer is a no-go for me. I found this BCBGeneration one on Revolve which I really love and think is perfect for the office with a cardigan while inside. It hasn't arrived yet but I think it will work. I also like this one which is slightly more pricey, but has sleeves which is nice for covering my arms. Fun fact: I used to work for BCBG as a sales associate after my first year of college. Wishing I could still use my employee discount to buy these items!
  5. I know this item isn't super summery, but I think this Zara jumpsuit will transition nicely come fall. I just really like it and think I'll wear it a lot, and what other reason do I need?!
  6. This isn't typically my style, but I'm really into retro stripes right now so I love this mini dress from Urban Outfitters. It's my go-to for throwing on when I'm running out of the house in the weekend. 
  7. I LOVE overalls, and while I've linked a pair from Gap before, I found another I love. I actually got a lighter wash that's no longer online though, but this short version of the other overalls I liked from Gap are super cute and easy for this hot weather. Can you tell that I don't do well with heat yet?!
  8. I may have linked these before but I can't remember, but I really love these block heels from Gap. The nude color is perfect for work (did I say I'm starting a new job, lol) and aren't too high. I'll style them for my Instagram soon!
That's it for this month! If you have any summer-favorites already, please let me know in the comments – I could really use your help!
