Last of the Summer Wardrobe Additions


It's only at the end of the season when I start to realize that I have some serious holes in my wardrobe. Fortunately, summer here in Chicago started late, and we're just now entering the dog days of summer.

Lesson learned. Cheap sandals, although cute and cheap, will not last long. Case in point, my beloved Old Navy T-Strap sandals fell apart last weekend in the middle of a walk. I held them together with a hair tie, but they're completely done now. Meanwhile, the leather gladiator sandals I got from Aldo 6 years ago are still going strong, but looking completely tattered and almost inappropriate for work. So summer sandals are on the list of things I need to fill ASAP. I'm really liking Everlane's selection of sandals. They've got a few, but I think these LA sandals might do me well. I like a strappier sandal!

The second thing is loose fitting, drapey tank tops. I keep wishing these were in my closet, especially lately. There's something so casual, yet still dressed up about a loose fitting tank half tucked into some cropped trousers for work. Again, I'm looking at Everlane's selection of tank tops. I'm half way between a Ryan Tank and a Muscle Tank - slightly leaning toward the Muscle tank. What do you guys think?

No purchases yet, but very tempted to, especially since I'd really like new sandals to wear before my vacation starts!

  1. I vote muscle. I like a higher neck, but they all end up creeping down anyway and look like the 1st pic by the end of the day anyway.

    1. Ahh, do you have one? I don't want a tank top that stretches too much.

  3. Oh I like those sandals! Hm i like the muscle tank, but I feel like they're not as practical for staying cool and I don't like how my bra band shows through the sleeve holes (not sure if it does that with the Everlane one!)

    1. Not sure about that either! I've never worn a proper muscle tank. The only ones I've got are old college tees that I've cut the sleeves off of! I'll let you know though... Just put in the order today!

  4. I have the Ryan tank from Everlane and rather like it! The drape is amazing. It's a little on the low side in the chest though. I have a M.

    1. Awesome - this is what I've heard from others who have experience with the tanks! Thanks for the sizing info as well! I got a S in the muscle tank.
