There’s nothing like a little red and blue outfit for Summer, right?! It’s the quintessential Summer outfit combination from Memorial Day straight through Labor Day. And I know what you’re thinking. You’re like, “uh, Lauren. This top is so not red.” But it is. I promise! Although it photographed a bit more orange, in person it’s such a pretty orangey-red color that is perfection this time of year. It instantly adds color, regardless of how long you’ve spent in the sun! I’m tellin’ ya, you need this tassel tank!
It’s not a maternity top, but the loose blouse-y cut makes it perfect for anyone, expecting or not. Although it might be a little on the short side for a third trimester bump (depending on how you show, of course!), it works perfectly with plenty of room for a second trimester Summer outfit.
And did y’all notice the details? In my opinion, eyelet is always a good idea for Summer. Pluuuus it has a scalloped hemline AND tassels. The top is self-tie, which is also perfect for ladies of different heights and torso lengths. For a short waisted gal like me, tops like this are my holy grail! I never have to worry about the straps sliding off my shoulders!
As far as sizing goes, pre-pregnancy I almost always tended to wear a small at Loft. And because of the cut, I stayed true. It works perfectly with room to grow. So for all you ladies who aren’t expecting, I would definitely recommend sizing down!!
And before y’all go, I have to mention two more things. I had been eyeing some ball drop earrings online, but for trendier pieces like this, I never like to spend a lot. Buuut I found these for $13! They come in four color options, including turquoise, which I may or may not be trying to talk myself out of buying as we speak… And of course I have to mention these sunnies too! SmartBuyGlasses sent them to me, and I’m kiiinda in love. You can check out their selection here. They have tons of designer frames at great prices!
