Hi! Today I’ve got a mix of outfits for June Gloom and early summer that I’ve been showing on Instagram (@puttingmetogether) and Facebook! For some of you it’s blazing hot, but where I live, May and June weather can be a mixed bag. Sometimes it’s cooler here in May than it is in the fall, and at least half of June is marked with gloomy skies. Here’s what I’ve been wearing through it all!
I post outfits on both Instagram and Facebook that never make it to this blog apart from these roundups. Often by the time I post them here the sales aren’t happening or the items have already sold out. If you don’t currently follow on Instagram or Facebook, there are two ways you can see these outfits earlier:
- The “Instagram Outfits” section of this blog – You can see outfits as they are posted on Instagram. Find them on the righthand sidebar if viewing on desktop, or down at the bottom under “Instagram Outfits” if viewing on mobile. If you click those images, you can shop the outfits!
- PMT Emails – I send these outfits in PMT Emails along with announcements for a new blog post. I also share sale alerts and exclusive giveaways! Subscribe HERE!
SIZING INFO: I’m 5’6″ with a short torso and normally size S/M or 6, size 8.5 to 9 in shoes.
This was from early May during May Gray. Anyone else have May Gray and June Gloom?
Simplest OOTD. I love the idea of the most basic pieces in the most basic colors, but I can’t resist the urge to add a print. I kinda feel naked without one! Anyone else? 😁
Put together an easy weekend outfit with black jeans, a white tee, and white sneakers. Add a denim jacket for another layer. Then, add a fun accessory somewhere, like colorful earrings, yellow or red flats, leopard print sneakers or flats, or printed earrings! I’ve been wearing these Spotted Cork earrings quite a bit the last couple months. They are the PERFECT addition to all basics!
BTW this denim jacket is back in stock! It’s ridiculously comfy! It’s soft, stretchy, and lightweight. Only downside is it doesn’t have pockets. But it’s the most comfortable denim jacket I’ve ever worn. Runs a bit small and fitted–I’m wearing size M. See it in a few washes HERE.
Need an easy outfit formula? This one works with almost ANY colored or printed top! Take a colored top of your choice and pair it with white jeans, a utility vest, and either white sneakers or bookend the outfit with colored flats in the same color as your top. Do it with coral, aqua, cobalt blue, grey, pink, or whatever else you want. Of course I went with yellow. 😁💛

If you couldn’t tell by this collection, I kiiiinda love these cute little bow slides. 😍 ❤️🧡💛 Colored flats are SUCH an easy way to add interest to summer outfit!
These are fairly comfy for being so inexpensive, with a tiny cushion in the footbed and soft cloth around the toes.
A peek at what I packed on my trip to Chicago last month! See my full packing list HERE, and turn the list into one appropriate for hot weather by using sleeveless versions of the items, a romper instead of a jumper (i.e. not long pants but shorts), denim shorts instead of jeans, and either black shorts or black linen pants. The tops are all pretty basic so they’re easy to change to tanks!

One of my outfits from Chicago! Full of classics. Is there anything more “me” than stripes, a denim jacket, and yellow? 😄💛
Getting through that June Gloom with classic black and white and a splash of leopard! 🐆 I reviewed this top a few weeks ago (HERE) and have really, really been loving it since. It’s on the thicker side, so it’s not great for suuuuuuper disgusting-hot days. But it’s good for the medium warm days or slightly cooler nights in the 70s–with shorts of course. And great for June Gloom with jeans. 😀 It’s also very stretchy and comfy! I wear size S. Just a few days ago I ordered it in black to have a nicer casual version of a black tee! It comes in other fun colors like a poppy red, pink, olive, and yellow. See them HERE!
Haven’t worn this yet, but shared this pic to tell you all that this top has been on MAJOR SALE this past month! Often $7 and for a couple weeks as low as $4!!!!! It’s soft and stretchy and very comfy and comes in TONS of prints! See all the prints HERE. I wear size S.
Outfit made of pieces from the newly released Summer Outfit Guide! Actually, though there are over 70 outfits in the guide, I don’t think this is even one of them, haha! Just goes to show how many combos you can make when you’ve got a cohesive, intentional wardrobe.🙌🏽
I reviewed these shorts several weeks ago HERE, so head to that post if you want to see them on me. They have a 5″ inseam and 12″ leg opening in size XS! SO happy fo some shorts that aren’t too short and fit around my thighs comfortable. HALLELUJAH! 🙌🏽 Got them in olive too! See them HERE.
