This morning I was putting off getting dressed for work – -as per usual — and browsing Instagram, and I spotted the #StyleMeMay challenge in the feed. I was intrigued… The idea of someone giving me a little style direction every day in May {and in turn, having one less thing to think about in the morning} sounded pretty appealing.

It also led me to the blog of the challenge’s creator, Hilary at Dean Street Society. In the five or ten minutes I spent perusing her blog and catching up on her online style channel, I kind of fell in love. And I knew that I wanted to play along.

So let’s begin, shall we? We’re kicking off the month-long challenge with something that makes us “want to twirl.” Since I got kind of a late start, I grabbed the first thing in my closet that seemed twirlable, ending up with this full embroidered chambray a-line skirt. Remembering The Mister’s warning about rising temps this afternoon, I paired it with a super easy tank and flat sandals.

You can keep up with my progress here on the blog, twitter, and on Instagram (username: @keiralennox)!

Anyone else joining in?
