Five on Friday - Summer Wardrobe Staples (Perfect Tanks, Skirts, Shorts, Bras, and Shoes)

Summers are hot and humid here in the south, so shorts, skirts, and tanks are pretty much all I wear.  Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite summer staples.  All of these options are affordable and fully stocked, so keep on reading for some good stuff!

O N E – The Perfect Tanks

These are great basic tanks that are perfect for layering and this version isn’t ribbed, so I feel like it’s a nicer option to wear alone as well.  They hold up well in the wash and they don’t fade or shrink in the dryer.  I love pairing them with a pair of cutoff jean shorts, and they are also the absolute perfect choice to wear with my beloved Amazon skirts.  They can also be worn with a regular bra rather than a strapless one, and that makes them the perfect tanks in my book.  They come in a rainbow of colors, and they’re only $6, so load up while they’re in stock!  These run true-to-size, but I like a very slim fit since I tuck them in to my shorts, jeans, and skirts like a bodysuit, so I size down to an XS.  One more thing to note, these are good and thick so they’re not at all sheer… even the white one (see the picture below)!  Oh, and they're the absolute perfect length... they hit me right at the hips so they're not too long and they're not too short... perfect for tucking in!


T W O – My Favorite Skirts!

I’ve mentioned these skirts many, many times on the blog, but now that skirt season is upon us, I thought I’d mention them again because they are just that good!  I have this skirt in tan and white, black and white, and green and white, and I love every single one of them so much!  I wear them with the tanks above for everyday activities like running errands, I wear them with various other tops and heels to dress them up a bit, and you could even wear them with sweaters and boots in the fall and winter.  The possibilities are endless because these are so versatile!  They come in tons and tons of colors and patterns – lots of floral options, too! – and I cannot recommend them enough.  These fit true-to-size… I’m in a small.  


T H R E E – The Best T-Shirt and Tank Bras

I don’t think I’ve ever shared these bras here on the blog and I’m not really sure why I haven’t!  I’ve been wearing these bras for years, and they are my all-time favorite.  They are, by far, the most comfortable bras I’ve ever worn… I can wear this all day for 16 hours and never once have to adjust it in any way.  It stays in place all day and I totally forget that I’m even wearing a bra when I’m wearing these.  They don’t contain any wire, but they offer plenty of support for me.

The cups aren’t stiff at all either (nor are they too thin), so I feel like they give my breasts a more natural-looking shape and appearance.  They look fantastic under t-shirts and tank tops – seriously, so flattering – and they’re the only bras I wear under the tanks I mentioned above.  The best part is that they do not cost an arm and a leg like so many other bras do.  These are only $21.99 and they also come in a rainbow of colors.  They have 4.6/5 stars with over 1,000 ratings at, so if you have any doubts, just read through the reviews! 


F O U R – Another Pair of Great Jean Shorts

I’ve professed my love repeatedly for these Target cutoff jean shorts and I have declared them the best pair of cutoff jean shorts ever.  However, I did recently find a new pair that rivals those!  These cutoff jean shorts from American Eagle are ah-mazing.  They fit like a glove, they’re comfy (they have a good amount of stretch), and they’re so flattering.  These shorts are very fitted, and they have a shorter inseam than the Target shorts, though, so if very short shorts aren’t your thing, then you probably won’t want these.  I absolutely love them, though!  They come in various washes, including black, and I’m dying for them to bring them back in white because I’m in need of a pair of good white denim shorts!  They fit true-to-size… I wear a 2.  They are pricey at $49.95 per pair, but they go on sale constantly, so you can get them for a great price.  I was able to get mine for 40% off!  As I’m typing this (Wednesday), they are currently 40% off, so hopefully they’ll still be on sale today as you’re reading this! 


F I V E – Cute Sneakers

I love a good pair of cute sneakers for summer, and Target is my go-to for these.  Their Universal Thread and A New Day lines always have the cutest options, and they’re comfy and affordable.  The pair that I’ve been wearing for the last couple of years is sold out now, but I love this new option!  They’re neutral so they’d go with pretty much anything, and they’re also on trend.  They’re also much more affordable than the ever-popular Golden Goose sneaks!
