What I’m Wearing: Spring Edition

May 4, 2021


Erin Schrader

May the 4th be with you! There I said it. If there’s only one day a year you let a nerdy joke slip, let today be that day. 😉 So May is officially here, the sun is shining, and it’s almost time to start dressing with summer in mind. Hopeful thinking, am I right? While I’m still holding onto the concept of manifesting desires into reality over here, you can find me dressing for this in-between spring weather in the meantime. From lightweight sweaters to sun hats and PJ’s, I’m sharing 10 recent outfits I’ve been wearing these days. Spoiler Alert: it’s been extra heavy on the pajama side lately.

Before we get into all of the outfits, 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 [literally every outfit housed in ONE spot] 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! If you’re here, I’m assuming you like a) clothes b) good deals on clothes. Every Tuesday we send out the top deals on the internet and believe me, it’s good. Want in on the list? Sign up here!
