Hello, Beautiful! Today on The Beautiful Melody, I am talking about my May favorites! I can’t believe how fast time is going! I have rounded up everything I have been loving over this past month and will probably be obsessing over throughout the entire summer.

The first item on the list is white jeans (want to read an earlier post on the perfect pair of white jeans? click here), or if you have already read it, you will know that I was in desperate need of new white jeans that were not distressed. The two I happened to purchase, here ($65– order size up) and here ($54) are seriously so comfortable! As a classic staple piece to summer, these pants will constantly be in rotation.

Another product I have been loving this past month are chokers. I have to admit when the plastic tattoo chokers from the 90’s started to come back last year, I was totally against going back (I mean why would I pay $12 on a plastic memory that I used to get for 25 cents at carnivals and grocery stores as a little girl?), but this summer chokers have made a huge comeback and I have been loving adding a choker to my outfits for a more vintage edgy look! ASOS has a great selection with some very affordable prices, but BaubleBar has some very unique chokers that are more on the feminine side which I love as well.

And lastly, the two beauty products that I cannot live without: lip gloss and highlighter. It’s not summer without glossy lips and highlighted cheekbones (and everywhere else the sun hits) haha. My favorite highlighter (I use two) is the Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in Pink Gold for my entire cheekbone and for that extra pop for a day at the pool or an evening out, I like to add a bit of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal on the center apple of my cheek, as well as the side center of my shoulders.

As for lip glosses, I have currently been crushing on the ones by Anastasia of Beverly Hills. They are super pigmented with the perfect amount of gloss and shine; it goes on so smoothly with the applicator and last practically all day! (I’ve noticed by applying lip balm prior helps the longevity of the gloss).

Below I have listed all the products mentioned in todays post along with a few others that are summer staples, like fringe accessories (I love my fringe sandals; I feel like Pocahontas), or the weekender bag that is perfect for those who love to get away and explore the cities around them for a weekend like I do. 🙂


Thank you so much for stopping by! What are some products you just can’t live without lately? I would love to hear.
