Last week, I mentioned the fact that we only have about a month left of summer. September 23rd marks the last official day of summer. Therefore, I’m savoring every last bit of the season.

Up until about two summers ago, I was never that into the season. Fall was my favorite and summer was kind of just second fiddle. And while I still loooove fall and now absolutely adore summer. Even when sweating to death haha. It’s just such a special and freeing time of year. There are so many activities and events to look forward to. And you just live life a little more carefree, am I right? 

With that being said, I’m just not quite ready to say goodbye to the season. So I’m savoring summer and wearing all things summery. Especially due to the fact that it’s 90+ degrees every day. I am not one of those bloggers that is going to try to look cute wearing fall clothes in the middle of August while sweating my life away. Just ain’t going to happen. So until the temperatures drop, this summer gal will be wearing summer clothes. 

Which brings me to the topic of today’s post…

The tank every woman needs in her life 

This cotton cami has been a game changer this season. Like summer, in the past, camis just weren’t my thing. They were clingy, uncomfortable, and made it hard to wear a bra. I’m pretty sure they’ve been banned from my wardrobe since elementary school when that little baby belly (that was still baby fat, right?) made me feel SUPER self-conscious wearing one. I would pull, tug, and wrap my arms around my waist. Till I finally said NO MORE

Then this summer, this cotton cami from Everlane made me want to give cami’s a try again. Even though 5th grade Laura Leigh was screaming NO in my head! Well thankfully I didn’t listen to her and gave the cotton cami a real try – only to be VERY pleasantly surprised! 

NO TUGGING, NO PULLING, NO NEED TO PUT MY ARMS AROUND MY WAIST. It’s dare I say comfortable, light, and makes wearing a bra super doable (a real, real bra). 

So lesson learned: don’t listen to little self-conscious 5th grade you! Sometimes, trying something you use to hate is SO worth it!

  11. That is one of those camis that you just have to have. Not only they are comfy, but they are super versatile and that’s what I like the most. It’s one of my favorite pieces to travel with.
