Greetings, friends, and welcome back to 25 Days of Summer Fashion! This is my seasonal style collab with Cyndi Spivey, where we each share a new summer outfit every day (except Sundays) for the month of June, and today I’m styling a double scoop ruffle tank from Boden.
To sweeten the deal, Boden is having a 30% off sale this weekend (use code E6N7), so if you’ve had your eye on any of their styles, now is the time to scoop them up. (You can see all my Boden Favorites in The Shop!)
Before this summer, I hadn’t shopped at Boden in years, but I rediscovered them when Nordstrom started carrying some of their pieces, and I’ve been ordering from them quite a bit lately.
I like their classic, feminine styles and the quality of their fabrics and workmanship. If you shop when they’re running a sale, you get a really good value.
This scoop neck tank has a scoop neckline in both the front and back, and the ruffle trim adds just a touch of femininity without being over the top.
Ruffles are a huge trend this summer and expected to carry over into fall, and while I’m not usually drawn to those styles, I like ruffles in small doses.
This print is really pretty too — fresh and summery, and perfect for pairing with white shorts.
If pink isn’t your thing, this top also comes in white, mustard, and ultramarine.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small, and I can also wear a regular bra with it.
It’s on the shorter side with a straight hemline, which I like because it doesn’t require a front tuck. #hallelujah If you are taller or longer waisted, you may want to size up one to get a little more length.
These white shorts are the Kut from the Kloth Gidget raw hem shorts, and they have a 4″ inseam. They’re nice and thick and not at all see-through. They’re TTS, or size up if in between; I have the 8. There are a few sizes left at Nordstrom, if you prefer to shop there, but Zappo’s is almost fully stocked.
Also, how fun is this bag? Unfortunately, it sold out. Boo to the hoo. I was so excited to share it with you. I’ll link up some similar options below.
I kept the rest of the look fairly simple with neutral slide sandals and some of my favorite fashion jewelry.
This look is perfect for a backyard BBQ, a day out and about on vacation, or just hanging out on the patio with friends on a hot summer day.
