The Perfect Tank Top {Pregnant or Not}

I'm one of those people who really, really wants to be into fashion and look perfectly put together at all times. 

I am not actually one of those people.

I try my best to look nice and in the season's fashions. I want to wear patterns and polka dots and stripes... but somehow I often end up with solid tanks and cardigans and giving them a lil' somethin' somethin' with fun jewelry or shoes. 

I was incredibly psyched when my sister Kimberly recommended the Essential Ribbed Scoop Neck tank tops from Forever 21.

They are stretchy and flattering yet keep their shape, they come in a zillion colors and..oh yeah, they are a whopping $4.80 a pop. Since I've been pregnant, my love for these tank tops has grown uncontrollably!

They are slim fitting and extra long, so they are perfect for showing off the burgeoning bump!

I don't want to hide my pregnancy under big, baggy clothes and I've found that these tanks, mixed with cute cardigans and pants or long skirts really do the trick from making me look too bulky and oversized, not to mention keeping me in some sort of style.

Oh! And I haven't worn them this way, but I think these tanks would also be absolutely perfect for bedtime, especially in these last hot summer days! And um, again for $4.80 a pop, you really can't go wrong. And, I just realized they are on special this week online - 2 for $8. I plan to stock up on darker colors and wear them throughout the fall, mixed with chunky sweaters, leggings and boots!

So that's what I'm crushing on these days. I'm off to scoop these up in every color under the sun...

Do you have a go-to look?

A new collection on preview for one night only, featuring, you guessed it, black. Gorgeous eye shadows and nail polishes lead the collection, however I do have some reservations about the black lipstick.
