10+ Spring & Summer Trends To Wear

May 12, 2018


Erin Schrader

Another week, another seven days to get dressed [actually seven minus one this past week – turns out the stomach flu makes you a lot less excited about putting on real clothes].  This weeks lineup of outfits is spring and summer ready thanks again to the 70-degree temps we’ve been having here in Indiana. Between tanks, shorts and sandals, my wardrobe is ready for all things fun in the sun and now that I’m not puking my brains out [yaaaay!] I may just go partake.

Before we dive in, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, I am 5’4, 125 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin!
