Over the years I’ve noticed that I have the tendency to stock up on multiples whenever I love an item or product. Around four years ago I made a trip to the Urban Outfitters store in Durham to get my seasonal fix and ended up scoring this tank in the burgundy color way on sale for only $20. I adore this top and have worn it to death over the last several years. The gold metal detailing adds the perfect bohemian flare and the cut of the top is super flattering with a bralette underneath. A couple months ago my mom, sister and I were in a consignment shop scoping out some steals and my sister came across this blue tank for $7, tags on and everything. Knowing how much I loved my other top like this I snagged this one too because why not? I have fallen back in love with both of these tops and honestly love having options when it comes to the color!
I threw on my trusty Just Black distressed skinnies to add a little edge to the look and grabbed one of my favorite summer shoes to tie it all together. These platforms are from fab’rik Raleigh and are much more comfortable than they look. After wearing them for some of my longer retail shifts I realized how much more versatile flatform sandals are than they appear. It definitely helps that these are lightweight so that I don’t feel like I have Frankenstein feet walking around (I know you know what I mean!).
This outfit is perfect for transitioning into the cooler days by trading out the sandals for a taupe ankle boot and throwing on a chunky cardigan over the tank for a bit of warmth. After having a few low humidity 70 degree days here in Raleigh I am beyond eager for boot and sweater weather. Hopefully this weather hasn’t been a complete tease and we’ll continue on this trend of fall weather. I’ve already begun rocking my favorite fall/winter nail polishes to maybe coax the cooler weather along. 😉
