Have any of you stopped by the South Congress Hotel? I mentioned it last week, but Kelsey and I did our shoot there and it was so much fun exploring the grounds. It also has a beautiful rooftop pool which I’m anxious to visit. It’s a great hotel if you’re looking for a place to stay when you visit Austin. It’s brand spanking new and has a restaurant attached called Cafe No Se that is supposed to have an excellent brunch. I’m dying to try it and the pictures online tell me it’s a pretty adorable spot. Man, Austin is so cool you guys. I can’t say that enough.
Well okay I lied. It’s actually getting pretty hot already. That’s Texas for you. I find that sometimes the easiest way to quickly get ready in this spring heat is to throw on a cute tank over a pair of jeans or shorts. If I’m going out, I’ll often dress up my ensemble up with a bold lip. But if I’m heading out during the day or spending time with friends, keeping it simple is just fine. I love a good striped tee or tank. Stripes are often slimming and I love how many different styles and colors they come in. There are so many ways to mix it up! I’ve had my eye on this striped swing tank that comes in 5 colors and is perfect for your summer wardrobe. I wish I could have one of each but I’m revisiting my ‘want’ vs ‘need’ list and 5 styles certainly doesn’t fall into the latter category.
I visited Anthropologie yesterday after receiving a giftcard from a friend. How cute would this whispered striped tank be tucked into a long skirt? (One day I will rock a long skirt…one day). I love the elegance and neckline of this top. I found a few other things at Anthro that I decided to purchase instead, but I still have that top on my mind.
Below I’m wearing a top from Luxe Apothetique which is a local shop in Austin. Unfortunately, it is sold out but I linked two adorable tops below that are as similar as I could find to mine! And I kind of want both! No really, I want both. #wantwantwantwantwant <– How many times can I say that in one day? Help.
What I love about this top is that the stripes are vertical instead of horizontal and the pocket works in the opposite direction! Kind of unique :) I love the blue but would love a striped tank in olive or white like this one. So cute, right?!
By the way, I hope you notice how repetitive I am with these sandals. When you find something you love, you wear it over & over again. These go with everything! I don’t need a huge shoe collection. Just a few pairs that I really love.
