... just have a minute? Phew May... you are a lot. On paper, you're just one big celebration of all things colorful, vibrant and full of gratitude with grandiose hopes for the breeze of Summer.
But in reality, May is overwhelming. In our part of the world, the weather cannot get itself together, shoe decisions are crippling, inevitably someone comes down with a sinus infection, we want to wear dresses but those legs are not ready, and just when we have finally committed to storing the turtlenecks, there's a high of 38 with thundersnow. Peace be with you if any of your children are involved in spring sports or those spectacular productions of dance recitals and choir concerts. Throw in a birthday or two and you are as good as toast.
So... we get you. Highly recommend a solid go-to wardrobe you can swap in and out of. Having recently returned from a long spring break trip, I essentially stuck to the color scheme and simplicity of the outfits that I had packed.
Here's what we've been wearing, and best of all, these items go seamlessly in to Summer.
