How To Style A Linen Tank: Visible Monday

How to style a custom-made linen tank top. There are a handful of pieces that make up my core summer wardrobe (our summer is six months long, so maybe two hands-full 😊). Lightweight cotton skirts, trousers and tees, sandals, sunscreen, and a couple of tank tops are my usuals.

Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!

I found this linen tank-with-some-attitude on Etsy (linking for love, I paid full price). The seller creates your clothing per your order, how groovy is that? The style tank I chose can be made shorter or longer, and comes in twenty-five (yes!) colors. Trust me to start with black, heh.

I adore the tie-tops that make this tank even more customize-able. The small ruffle at the hem adds personality too. The material and workmanship are excellent.

You saw these high-waist trousers just a couple of weeks ago; they are in my “favorites” rotation. The vintage 1970’s necklace (sim) is a gift from my friend Bryan, it was his late mom’s. He says she was a stylish woman, and I believe him!

These Sofft sandals are also in high rotation; I may need to replace them soon – with the same shoes. They are so comfortable and give me a little height.
A hat to shade my tender skin, I mean fur.
