Happy May, Birmingham! We made it to the month of sunshine, family-filled days and spring parties galore. From graduation parties and Mother’s Day celebrations to Memorial Day get-togethers and start-of-summer soirées, we found a dress for every occasion. Now, with the temperatures rising, it can be difficult to find something stylish, comfortable and easy to wear, so for this month’s What to Wear, we mixed things up and found 10 breezy and beautiful options from local boutiques to help you stay cool and stylish for all of your upcoming May events. Set at the iconic backdrop of Vulcan Park & Museum, today’s gorgeous model Finn Jasele shows off nine chic dresses and one stompin’ romper, all found locally at The Clothes Tree by Deborah, Manhattan South and Wrapsody!
