Tank Tops

Tank: Old Navy  |  Skirt: c/o Sway Chic (shop)  |  Denim jacket: Forever 21  |  Sandals: c/o Shoetopia (shop)  |  Necklace: c/o Sway Chic (shop)

I spent most of the weekend in this outfit hosting friends in town, watching the Olympics, and if you follow me on Instagram (moomooaudrey) you may have seen that I stole a kid and took her to the zoo.  For some reason I'm hesitant to wear tank tops for normal outfits because to me, they are workout clothes.  Why do I keep forgetting that all you have to do is throw on a scarf or a cool necklace and pair it with some fun sandals to make a tank top outfit look pulled together?  

Anyway, I was going to write about how I LOVE watching the Olympics, but I need to get to work.  For now, remember to enter the latest giveaway to help bless a girl in Mexico!

  1. If I know I'm going to wear a jacket, I love to wear tank tops. It eliminates the dreaded bunching up at the pits syndrome. I love this look, skirt with a denim jacket, soo cute!

  5. Please tell me I'm not the only one whose life is being taken over by the Olympics :)  Also nice to know I'm not the only one on feeling not quite fully dressed with a tank top in a regular outfit... but seriously all it needs is that striped skirt, and it looks so effortlessly chic!

  12. You look adorable. Sway Chic contacted me, too, then realized they had too many people wanting to participate and now they're asking me to wait, haha. I have never had a problem wearing tank tops as real clothes, but I generally layer, so that must be the trick!

  13. I just found your blog and I love it!  I'm a thrifty person at heart, so I'm always looking for new ways to wear my old clothes.  Plus, your style seems fairly similar to mine.  I'm totally following you!

  14. I have 3 cotton tanks from Target that look about like this one (black, white, and army green). I wear them all the time! I especially need them for wearing under tops that are either too sheer or too short. And then there's tanks under cardigans...basically plain & simple tanks are a necessity haha.

  27. Tank tops are my go-to when I'm wanting to dress a skirt down a bit, so I love this look! Especially with the denim jacket :)

  30. I love this! A simple tank with a maxi is always fabulous!

  31. That outfit is perfect. I'm the same way about tanks too, but finally am coming around to the idea that it's ok to wear when I'm not working out (sitting on the couch eating popcorn).
