Summer is officially here and that means tank tops and shorts are my regular everyday looks for pretty much the entire rest of the summer. Today, I wanted to briefly share with you that sometimes what you find on the mannequin actually can work for you, as I have talked about in the past that we can’t always just assume that because it looks great on the magazine model or on a mannequin it’s going to work for you. However, a couple of weeks ago I was smitten over a look Maurices had on one of their mannequins and was thrilled when the outfit they had put together came together perfectly for me. That look is this crochet overlay with a colorful cami underneath. In their window front they had it paired with a pair of denim shorts and then some jewelry. I saw it and immediately wanted to add it to my wardrobe, but decided to wait and think about it and the different ways I would wear it. Needless to say a week later it was added into my closet and I couldn’t be more happy. So, if you see something on the mannequin, don’t be afraid to grab the pieces and see how it fits, remember to find your right size (and depending on what store you’re at.. it really can fluctuate quite significantly.) A new favorite summer look for me – these overlays are huge right now and perfect if you want a tank top look with added flare. This is breezy and comfortable and perfect for the warm weather. I specifically love an overlay because I don’t feel comfortable in just a cami and a lot of times if tanks are loose I don’t like them in my mid-section, but this allows you to wear one while still being flowy in the midsection, creating a super flattering look.
