Summer of Style | 05

How was your Fourth?!? We started the day with our town’s parade, and ended it with too much BBQ and a huge fireworks display…it was pretty much perfect. Minus the bug bites. I wore this dress, which was equally patriotic and kept me wrapped up while lounging in the grass.

Today I’m sharing another Summer of Style outfit, this one is a go-to on the steamiest of days! It’s hard to get much cooler than a tank and favorite cut-offs.

I’m always looking for lightweight fabrics for the Texas heat, and this striped tank caught my eye not only for the fun print, but the way the cotton and linen blend drapes away from the body. The sequin palms just up the cute factor!

Cut-off shorts are a tricky fit, so I was thrilled to find these…and I haven’t stopped wearing them! I like the slightly relaxed fit, and although they do stretch throughout the day, they still manage to keep their fit across the bum. (No saggy crotch!)

Fit Tip: I’m wearing my usual size 26, but this is how they look after a few wears.

If the palm on palm combo is too much for you, the outfit is equally stylish with a traditional (faux) leather tote.

You’ll find me in this outfit every weekend from now until after Labor Day! See more from the Summer of Style series here, and more Summer Outfit Ideas here. Oh, I often get asked about the undergarments I wear with outfits like these…this bra is my saving grace more often than not, and these undies never ride up or show an outline.

See you back here tomorrow for the most interesting stop from our Scandinavian cruise!

  1. I love the print on the tank top – very summer-appropriate indeed! You also wear the cut off shorts very well – I can never wear them myself, they’re so difficult to style!

    That tank is so cheerful and screams summer! Sounds like you had a fun 4th! Our celebration was on Saturday with river lounging and hamburgers.

    Great tank; it would be perfect for my upcoming trip! It looks like J Crew only has XS left. Think it would it fit a 5’3″ 34C+ (that’s a small C!) ?
