Spring is here and I’m so happy that the weather is starting to warm up!  We just returned last night from New Orleans where we had so much fun over spring break!  I love how quiet and calm the house is after a big family trip…because everyone is so tired – ha ha!  I’m excited to be sharing some things with you about about our trip soon!  First I have a mountain of laundry to tackle!

I know everybody is tired of winter clothing so before we kick off our official spring outfits let’s start with the most essential building blocks of a spring wardrobe, and that would be tanks and tees!  You need these staple items to build spring and summer looks, but also tanks and tees will help you transition your wardrobe from winter to spring.  Perfect worn alone or layered up with a denim jacket, cardigan or an unbuttoned shirt – having just the right tanks and tees in your closet will help you stretch your budget too.

Shopping for tanks can be tricky sometimes, some tanks are so thin they are just meant for layering.  I prefer wearing tanks that can not only be layered but are substantial enough to wear alone.  I like layering tanks a little more with jackets over tees because there is less fabric to bunch up, but it’s about whatever works for you.

I’m partial to my black and white tanks and tees but I had to throw in a few fun striped and graphic tees, because we all need some of those too.  I’m a huge fan of striped tees and in my book a striped tee goes with pretty much anything and everything!  Who’s with me?  I’ve rounded up all my favorites that are perfect for wearing alone or layering and all under $50!
