Summer (Mom) Style: Chambray, Shorts & A Tankini

Yesterday was a beach day and it was fabulous!

Outfit #5

Shorts: Kohls
Chambray Top: Thrifted
Tankini: JCPenney
Sandals: Avon

This top is light and airy and made for the perfect top to wear to and even at the beach!

I realize this isn't an incredibly creative outfit or spectacular in any way... but some days, that's just part of being a mom.  Occasionally, we have things to do that don't require accessories or belts or cute dresses, like a beach day with the kids. When I get a day like that, I try to put on something with a little more personality than a ratty old tank top and a pair of gym shorts

Now, I have to admit, despite the airy chambray top, if I had taken a "After the Beach" photo, there would have been nothing even resembling classy about me!  A day at the beach in humid Florida can make anyone look like a hot mess! ;)

I'm liking up with The Pleated Poppy, Transatlantic Blonde, and Rolled Up Pretty.

It may not be the most creative but it is genuine. This outfit can get stuff done and I think the blog world needs more outfits like this: clothing you can wear AND live in!

(Today I'm being a touch hypocritical - I can barely breathe in this outfit. Living in it is hard!)

I LOVE this outfit! It is so cute and I think you could wear it not to the beach too!

I just wore a yellow tee (plain), jean shorts, and flip flops to the splash park today. You know I like to dress up, but I also believe in wearing what's appropriate for the event. So you look cute for the beach!
