My Casual Style Outfit

Happy Tuesday! We had a busy day yesterday, and we ended the afternoon with a photo shoot of some outfits that are coming to the blog soon.

At the last minute, we decided to meet some family for dinner, and I wore a casual outfit. This is the kind of outfit I wear all summer when the weather is hot. I might switch out my jeans for shorts, but this is my casual style.

I recently ordered this tank from Amazon, and it comes in a ton of colors and patterns. I think I’ll order a few more. If you’re a fan of a longer blouse, this one is a good option.

My Casual Style Outfit For quite some time, I’ve been looking for a lace bralette that I could wear with tank tops. I didn’t want to wear a strapless bra with this blouse.

I finally found a bralette that works for me, and I purchased it at American Eagle. I’m wearing a black one, and you can see the criss-cross straps in the back.

The lace bralette is on sale, and I have three different colors.

Tell Me What You Think! leave a comment...

  1. I really am encouraged by your beauty for the heart. Thank you. I am 62 and you help keep me stylish. I am in Rock Hill, SC . I love your heart for our Lord. May God’s mighty blessings be upon y’all!

    1. Well for one the bralette is more comfortable than a strapless bra. Lots of times you wear a bralette if the item you’re wearing is low. A bralette can be seen because it’s almost like a cami with lace.

  2. Cyndi, I love this outfit!! In fact, I actually bought the tank top in tie dye blue and tie dye green. If I wear a cardigan or light jacket on top this would work for church. Amazon truly is a hit or miss when it comes to clothes. There are some items I love and others are not so great or run way too small. Thanks so much for BFTH! You are a blessing!

  3. Cute top and good to know it was one of your quality purchases on Amazon. Ive been reluctant to order from them because I didn’t know how quality would be. I would love if you would doa post on wins and losses.

  4. Wow!!! I love this look!! You look great! I ordered the jeans and the top. How awesome to pay under 50.00 for an outfit. I used my shop runner and got free 2 day shipping which is perfect. My hubby and I are going away for the weekend for our 22nd anniversary! I will be packing and wearing my new outfit!! Whoo hoo!!

    Blessings to you always xoxo

  5. Love the simplicity of your outfit – it’s cute, comfortable looking and yet stylish. Looks great!

    I agree about quality – but I’m a watch the sales and buy then person. My philosophy is if I love it and it’s too expensive I visit it till it goes on sale – but if I go back during the sale and my size isn’t there, it wasn’t meant for me! Yes, I visit my prospective clothes!

    Have a blessed day!

  6. Your inspiration from Ruth was exactly what I needed to hear this morning as I sit in ICU with my long term boyfriend after an emergency surgery last Thursday. That advice and scripture was EXACTLY what I needed to hear. ❤️
    On a MUCH lighter fashion note, today is the first time I’ve worn high waisted jeans (super cute cream colored with a slightly cropped flare from Free People) and I wasn’t sure if they call for a full or half tuck- any advice?

  7. This is my casual outfit all the way. I really like the tank. I’ll be looking for a lighter neutral sandal when away this weekend as I have to replace the ones I’ve had for years. Being a little lighter in color does make a difference too… I agree with the Amazon purchases they can be hit or miss. I did order a daily ritual black jersey t shirt dress and the quality is superb!!! Please share your misses:) that would be fun and may tell us what to look for.
    Blessings

  8. Hi Cyndi,
    I just purchased the identical bralette at the Maidenform outlet for $14:99. Comes in nude and white as well. Very comfy!

  9. I’m going to have to go to AE 🙂 – every time you wear/post those jeans I love them! and what a great looking comfy outfit.
    As for buying quality – I gauge where and how often I’ll wear something to determine the $$ I’m willing to spend. Jeans – I’m not a “label snob” and I will buy $200 ones or $20 ones – if they fit and I like them. Summer tops that are weekend wear only – not usually over $25, but a work blouse – I will invest in a good piece.
    I had to laugh at the stripes comment – I do remember the striped dress that caused all the uproar :), and yeah, I like the stripes to match up.
    Excited to see what else you have coming our way!

  10. I understand about quality and I too have returned a few things to Amazon for that reason. My 22 year old daughter has even noticed the quality has gone down in a few of her favorite stores like Forever 21 and Lululemon. I can understand that with forever 21 but not with lulu because their leggings are over $100 but if they fall apart at the seam they will gladly take them back and give you a credit. Which is good.
    I’m still curious to know if those Amazon studded sandals were comfortable? I’ve had them in the cart to order.

    1. Me, too! Sometimes I look at all the options on Amazon, and I get a little confused. They look okay…but how do we know if they really are okay?

  11. Cyndi,
    I love the book of Ruth! Thank you for always letting your Christ light shine through!
    Grace & Peace.
    p.s. love your jeans, too!
