Tank You Very Much

I know I talk about it a lot, but I am a big fan of cardigans. But you know what you need to wear with cardigans? Something underneath. (I know, genius, right??)

I’m not a huge fan of matchy-matchy twinsets, though, so I usually just find a coordinating tank and call it good. But sometimes, tank tops can be a little too… revealing. I know you know what I mean.

That’s why I was THRILLED when I found these gems at my local Target over the weekend:

Image from Target.com - nice, basic cuteness here!

It’s the Ruffle Shirred Edge Tank by Merona, and it’s lovely. Totally appropriate coverage for work and/or play, not too tight, no need to hold the shirt in place when I lean over, and best of all — lots of bra strap coverage. It comes in 11 different colors and they’re all great! I started with just the white, but I’m definitely going back for more.

One thing to note. It looks as if Target.com is doing that fun thing where it appears that there’s “free shipping,” but the item is marked up to compensate for that. (I am a huge Gap and Old Navy fan, so don’t get me wrong as I say this — but they are NOTORIOUS for their online markups. I hate it!) These tanks are $9 online, and while yes – that’s a great deal – they’re cheaper in-store, and you should definitely buy them there if you can. I’m pretty sure I paid $7 for mine, but now I don’t remember. I know they weren’t $9, though…

But! Regardless. I highly recommend this tank. Go forth and get thee some!
