Just a Tank and a Tan

| |





May 14, 2010

Tank: Michael Stars (Nordstrom)
Shorts: H&M
Necklace: J. Crew
Sandals: DV by Dolce Vita (Urban Outfitters)

This outfit all started with the tank. What can I say? I’m a sucker for white shirts: a classic white button down, the perfect white t-shirt, white tanks. I love them; I just can’t seem to keep them clean. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve ruined a new white shirt on the first wear, so I’m pleased to say that I wore this for an entire evening, including dinner, and came home without one spot. Impressed?

Ever since deciding against these shorts for my Everybody, Everywear floral look, I’ve wanted to wear them and I love how this tucked in tank highlights their feminine shape. Still too hot to wear much more than the minimum, I finished the outfit with just a ribbon necklace and a pair of sandals. I can’t lie; I didn’t feel much pressure for accessories. This tank showed off my tan, and really, what better accessory is there than a healthy glow?

Jealous that you can tan!  Actually I'm jealous of your whole life right now;)  It looks so warm and calm and pretty out there. Love those shorts too.   You can never go wrong with a pair of floral shorts!

 The ribbon necklace is the perfect touch. Oh, and I'm quite jealous of your fabulous tan and hot-weather wardrobe.

 Agreed. I want a tan so I can start to dress simpler again. Crisp white and tan skin is really the best way to go. 

Hope you're enjoying your time down there!!!

It is soooo warm and calm - I love it! And, I agree about floral shorts; I wish I had more!

Thanks for commenting! 

Santina said...

Thanks, Lynzy! It's really tough hanging out on the beach all day, day after day... :) 

Santina said...

Thanks! It actually came down to the necklace or sunglasses, and I think I chose well. It was soooo hot that I could only stand one or the other!

Santina said...

No, I'm really not sure, Tanvi! 

Santina said...

OMG, tell me about it. Next year at this time I will be pale, pale, pale!

I can't wait to see your hair! Obviously you know I'm happy to hear it's going back to short short. I'm letting mine grow out a bit but I have no idea what I want to do with it...except get rid of this natural color. Yuck! 

Santina said...

Seriously, the weather is perfect! 

Santina said...

Yes! I love crisp white and a tan. I can't wait to get my hands on my favorite white button down in a few weeks. I'll definitely be all about showing off the tan while I have it...I mean, I have to have something to show for the last nine months, right?

You always look so happy in your photos. It makes me smile. I really can't believe these shorts are from H&M. They are too cute. And I love it when you can pair a plain white top with a statement necklace. It's really all you need.

I really like simple accessories. I feel like sometimes it's okay for people to not hear me dangling from a mile away. Enjoy that beautiful sun, and sand for me!

Those shorts are so cute - the pattern sort of demands a minimum of accessories as well.

 So jealous of your tan!  I've been all about the white shirts this week, but I don't think I'm quite this tan.  And I love those shorts.

such a simple and chic outfit, even if it wasnt the beach! (wishing I wasnt cold, I'll live vicariously through you while I can)

Santina said...

The weather is absolutely perfect; I won't lie! 

Santina said...

While I'd love to share, Erika, I think I might keep it all to myself for as long as I can. Yeah, I'm selfish like that. :)

Santina said...

White always feels fresh when it's really hot, doesn't it?
