Guest Post | Hot Summer Trend

Hello I am so excited to be guest posting for Biana!  My name is Amanda and for those of you who don't know me I reside over at a little space called Meet @ the Barre.  I am a Pure Barre instructor (amongst my 3 other jobs) and I write about all things ranging from health and fitness to fashion all with a funny spin.  If I'm sounding familiar it may be from Biana's B~inspired post. So for those of you who don't know this background Biana and I are literally soul sisters.  We met through blogging and spent the beginning part of our relationship writing emails like pen pal style until B ventured out to ask for my phone number.  I sent her a real life picture to let her and her hubby Gary know I was a real person and now we talk pretty much every day.

So like how much are we soul sisters okay here goes.  I grew up in Boston and went to the University of Florida and now reside in Florida.  B grew up in Florida, went to UF (we overlapped like one year because I'm an old lady) and now she lives in Boston.  So basically we have had the same life in reverse.  Oh and pretty much we are always thinking/buying/trending the exact things its like we


So I thought for my guest post I would take you down the fashion route and highlight a trend that is blowing up this Summer. What is it you ask?  Guess what?  It's not another post about maxi dresses because if y'all know me......you know I cannot get enough of them.  Nope this trend which is blowing up everywhere is the muscle tee tank.


Obsessed with this Sea, Sun & Sand tank!  I mean have you checked the back of it?  It's so perfect to beat the heat.  Throw it over your bathing suit or over a pretty back detailed sports bra oh and love this one and this ballet blush pink one here for Barre class.  Or pair it with this crochet back bra or this amazing strappy one, these shorts and heels (obsessed with them) for a night out.  I love when a piece is multifunctional.

The Break the Rules tank with glitter details is super affordable.  Kinda digging this Bob Marley one. Cheetah one is on sale!  I mean glitter is basically in our veins right?  Finally this Je t'aime tank has been worn on repeat this Summer!

So what do you think of this trend?  Are you on board yet?  How would you wear these tanks?  Casual daytime, workout or for an edgy night out?  Thanks to Biana for letting me stop!  Hope you will check me out over at Meet @ the Barre!  xoxoxo

  1. I am loving this look! Nice and casual, and helps you stay cool. Maybe I need to find one of these tanks to show off my new found biceps. ;)

  4. I love it! I would be in work out gear 24/7 if my office allowed it. Tanks are super comfy and great for layering. All the sayings make an old standby a little more hip!

  5. Hi Amanda! I started following your blog after Biana's B-Inspired post about you. I have enjoyed following along. That is amazing how you and Biana have led such similar lives. If you haven't already, you two should meet in person. We get a lot of graphic t-shirts and muscle tanks where I work. Both are really cute and so fun to create different looks and outfits with. Unfortunately the muscle tanks look awful on me. :-/ Love the one that you're wearing though and I hope that you have a nice day! :-)

  9. I love muscle tanks for working out! They are light and airy so I don't feel so constricted or sweaty after a hard bike ride.

  10. You look fab as usual. I love them for working out and have a couple but Im not sold on them for just heading out though.

  11. Love it!! And you know I love Amanda. I have such fat arms though that the muscle isn't the most flattering for me but I like the styles you have showcased here that have a bit of a twist to them like the Marley tank.
