I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but my closet isn't built for the summer months. Most of my clothes are all about fall/winter...chunky sweaters, boots, long sleeve dresses, etc. That's because fall is my favorite and there is something about fall clothing that I've always really been in love with. That said, the further we get into the summer, the harder it is for me to find new looks to put together. My summer wardrobe is limited in the number of pieces I have, but it in a's created a fun challenge of finding new ways to add a little summer flair to my closet!

A few weeks ago, I mentioned this new black tank on my old blog page before we moved over to this new site because it's the perfect basic piece to help mix up new looks. Today I paired my black tank and floral shorts to create a fun, but chic summer look.

There is something about the subtle layering details and slight ruffling that makes this tank a little dressier. It's still casual enough to wear during the day, but it can easily transition into the evening. I wore this black tank and floral shorts look all day while working in the office, and then kept it on (added a playful lip color) to go out to dinner in the evening with my boyfriend. I love any look that can easily transition from day to night...because well...efffortless!

The moral of this story is that my black tank is perfect for adding more flair to my summertime wardrobe. And the best part is...I plan on using it as a base layer for the fall! I can't wait to top it with cardis and blazers! YAS! For now, I can add a perfect pair of floral shorts to this black tank to create a fun and playful summer look that will both look great and help me survive this intense summer heat!
