Trendy Wednesday - Sweet Summer Tanks

Good morning, bloggers! I walked outside this morning to go to the gym, and it was positively chilly! When that breath of cool air hit my face I started to wish for Fall, and it reminded me of this post from last year. I’m really trying hard not to wish my summer away, but there’s so much to like about fall. One of my favorite things about has always been pulling out my favorite pair of jeans – you know, the ones that are soft from so much wear. For a long time, it seemed that denim was a summertime no-no as they were replaced by shorts and white crop pants, but in recent years, denim has become a staple in my May-August wardrobe. There is nothing like a good pair of jeans to show off a cute embellished tank. A good simple pair is the perfect backdrop for a girly bow, some frilly ruffles, floral appliqu├ęs, a bold strip, and even a dose of color. I prefer tanks that draw attention away from the waist and are a little billowy at the bottom, because despite these morning trips to the gym, my jeans still provide me with the loveliest of muffin tops. These tanks here all fit the bill, and for fall – which can take it’s time getting here - they’d look cute with a little cardigan.
I love the subtle stipe detail on this airy tank, and anything is better with a bow!

I have had my eye on this tank, that also comes in black, for a while now. 

That bubble hem is the perfect muffin top concealer, and the flowers at the neckline are precious!

I love a good, bold black and white stripe.

I love this color! And the tee looks perfectly soft and tissuey.

  1. How cute! Especially like the first tank and black and white stripe tank! Gotta love anything that helps conceal the muffin top. I'm still working on it, but my body just hasn't been the same after GG. Have a good hump day!

  6. Fun! I am so glad that tank top season is upon us.

    I struggle with wearing anything that is sort of 'billowing' around the waist. I am always paranoid that people are going to think I am pregnant... Probably because I have been asked I was pregnant twice in my life... When I wasn't, of course. not fun.

  11. I love the all, especially the last one, and the second one, but not the muffin top, because your theory depends on just how much of a muffin cap you have. They also ride up, which can be frustrating. The bows, are to die for, watch what Trish says about the post!

  13. Billowy lite weight tanks probably make the southern heat + humidity much more bearable during the most intense summer days. I love these tops!
