smart style series – week five

Happy Monday, friends!

This week’s post is the final one in this Smart Style series.  It’s been so fun putting these looks together and creating a number of different looks using the same staple items (my favorite denim, the cutest pink loafers – majorly on sale right now, and the best handbag).

Catch up on the last 4 weeks here: week 1 | week 2 | week 3 | week 4

I have to say that I love these jeans so much, I’ve been wearing them a couple of times a week – and they also happen to be $44 right now!  And I have gotten so much use out of my satchel – that thing doubles as a perfect laptop case, or a diaper bag (now that’s what I’d call versatile).  I’ve also already been busting out the pink loafers, no matter the near freezing temps in Chicagoland.

But today is about the tops, so let’s get to the good stuff – the TANKS!

black front tie tank 

handbag | denim | shoes

another great bag | another bag option

So if you click the links above, you’ll notice that both of the tanks are under $13!  THIRTEEN dollars, people!  That is such a steal – and I also linked a very similar option that’s on sale for only $5.  You can see in these photos that you can make a tank look super cute and stylish just by pairing it with the other right components (the Smart Style pieces).

These tanks also look so great right now under a lightweight long cardigan like this one – this is my new favorite spring cardigan.  It’s a great fabric weight, a light and bright color for the season, and perfect to wear with shorts even as the temps go up.  Have I thought about buying it in every color?  Maybe.  Will my husband kill me if I do?  Also, maybe.

(Size down in the cardigan, but the tanks fit TTS)

These are also my favorite sunglasses because they are super huge and cover a lot of your face.  This is very appealing to me for a number of reasons.

  1. I have a large head and face and need more coverage than your average bear.
  2. Great for sun protection
  3. Fills the need to cover incessantly swollen/puffy eyes due to horrible allergies

So cheers to a great week, friends!  I hope you’ve enjoyed this Smart Style series as much as I’ve loved putting it together 💛

Let me know what other looks you’d like to see in the comments below!

    I snagged these shoes after you shared them, and it took all of two days to buy another color. They are so cute and comfy!
