What I Wore: Lilly Pulitzer for Target Jersey Tank

After going roughly twenty-two years without wearing shorts, you may remember that I caved and bought some last summer. I am so happy I did!!  I pulled them out again this year and have been wearing them a lot.  It has just been way too hot for my trusty denim capris. (You can see some of my other shorts looks here.)  Also, as the weather has heated up, I was finally able to don my one Lilly Pulitzer for Target clothing purchase.

This tank wasn't in any of the plus size clothing previews I saw for the Lilly collection for Target.  I just happened upon it during the online launch while I was narrowing down what I actually wanted to purchase.  It was a swing tank style, so I knew it would fit.  I ordered the 3X, though I could have sized down one for a better fit in the bust.

That being said, this high-low hem jersey tank fits pretty well as is.  My main issue with it is the length in the front.  I wish it was just a little longer to cover my tummy a bit (and shorter in the back).  To balance that issue, I found this lace bottom cami from Lane Bryant in a complimentary color. Some times I think it looks great and some times I feel so-so about it.  I think the lace has to stay put in just the right amount.

The back upper portion of the top features a crochet lace panel.  These features normally get covered up in my clothing because I prefer to wear shrugs.  But I like the way the top looks by itself.  I did add this dark blue shrug for coverage and appreciate the way it frames the bright pattern.  I accessorized with my rose gold sandals and three different necklaces I picked up at a Charming Charlie sale.  I just couldn't decide which necklace to wear, so I kept them all!  One necklace is silver with turquoise beads, one is gold with starfish and pearls, and one is a gold chain with a bright colored and rhinestone koi fish. 

Overall, it is a great warm weather outfit.  I love the ease of the swing style of tops and really want to grab a few more.  If you are looking for this particular item, check eBay and Poshmark.

  1. I love the way you layered this top with the lace tank. It is a great way to add a little length where you want it. I got two pieces from the Lilly for Target line: a tank and jumpsuit. I finally just got a strapless bra so I can wear the spaghetti strap jumper without a jacket or cardigan, so I will be wearing that again soon. This heat has been miserable and anything I can wear that will help me stay cool, I am all for it!

    Love this whole look in you!
