Casual Wear for a Warm NYC Day

After cleaning out my wardrobe last weekend, I realized that I had a few t-shirts that I wanted to keep purely for the design. So, I decided to revamp a couple to wear on casual day trips around the city–like to American Museum of Natural History! (Also known as the best place on Earth :D).

I recycled this particular t-shirt to create a thin strap racerback tank top, which is perfect to wear with a bandeau, a lace bralette or over a bikini as a beach coverup! During the summer time, loose fitting pieces are usually my go to, especially on humid sticky days.

My casual outfit for today consists of my favorite light-wash denim shorts from Kohl’s, a now racerback tank top of a band that I just love (Andrew Jackson Jihad) and a pink lace bandeau from Aerie by American Eagle. My shoes are slip-on sneakers from Vans but I purchased them at DSW.

I cannot take any credit for the design though. I did a lot of research on Youtube looking at different ideas that previous people have done when I came across The Sorry Girls’ channel. This is the link to their DIY video to create this exact thin strap racerback from an old t-shirt (DIY T-SHIRT TO RACERBACK).
