We are in the heat of summer in Chicago, and trying to stay cool yet still be dressed appropriately for work (and family functions) can pose a problem. I was happy to find this Simply Vera Vera Wang Tank because it is a bit more covered up and looser than most tanks, yet still keeps me cool. These Vince cropped pants are made of paper-light cotton. My office family may get sick of seeing me in this outfit this summer!
