Happy Thursday peeps! Hope you’re all having a fantastic week so far! I’ve been a social butterfly this week and I’ve loved it, hehe. I had dessert and wine with a friend after work on Monday and on Tuesday I went into Philly and shot with my July style crush! We’ve chatted a lot online but it was super great to finally meet her in person! I love making friends through blogging, it’s wonderful! I also had dinner with another sweet blogger friend (Alena, my June Style Crush) last night! I’m a pretty big homebody but it’s been nice to get out with some friends! Gotta love summertime outings and good girl talk. 🙂
PURPLE TANK (comes in several colors) | SKIRT, similar here and here (most similar and only $15!) | SHOES, almost identical (and same brand, Franco Sarto) here | BAG, similar here | EARRINGS, similar here | NECKLACE, similar here | WATCH
I got this purple tank from Express a couple of months ago with the intention of adding a bit of color to my spring and summer wardrobe and I love it! I’ve actually got quite a bit of colorful pieces in the pipeline for you guys. It’s like I don’t even recognize myself, haha. Anyways, I also got the tank in white because #neutrals, but I went for the purple tank as my colorful option because purple is the color for Crohn’s Disease, so I figured I should rep that a bit more. 😉
Despite being colorful, this purple tank is still super versatile. It’s really easy to dress down but it’s also fun to dress up! I decided to dress it up and show you guys a fun work appropriate look with a tank top for summer! The fact that it’s button down dresses it up in a “businessy” way, so it’s a great work option for the hotter months. I paired it with a black swing skirt to keep things lady like, summery, and a bit dressed up.
But you guys know me and the fact that I never like to get too dressy, so I paired it with a nice pair of black wedges to keep things a bit more laid back and easy breezy. And of course a good straw bag keeps things feeling springy and summery! Since I wanted to style something that you could wear to work, I kept the accessories minimal with gold drop earrings, a dainty gold necklace, and a gold watch.
What do you guys think of this purple tank? Is this something you would wear to work now that it’s getting hotter out? Should I do more work looks, btw? I’m a pretty casual person but I know a lot of you work that 9-5 grind and gotta look profesh to death! 🙂
