Tank Top Tuesday

Gillian Anderson

So the dog days are definitely here. July threw down a sweltering gauntlet and I’ve never known August as a month to back down from a challenge. I expect sun. I expect warmth. Basically, I expect to sweat. So, then, what’s a gal – like poor, sweaty, sticky, glistening Gillian Anderson – supposed to do to beat the heat? Well, for one, a tank top helps. But I’m sure I can do better in the helpful advice department. What can I say? I’m a giver.

Emily DeschanelSpending a day at the beach is always a cool option.

Ashley GreenePulling at one’s clothing will help unstick them from your body.

Helen MirrenSitting near an open window will help you catch a breeze.

Katee Sackhoff & Tricia HelferRiding a motorcycle will really help you catch a breeze.

Michelle Rodriguez & companionSharing a cold beverage with a friend will cool down your core.

BeyoncéWearing short-shorts will cool your lower body.

Sigourney WeaverWearing just your skivvies will cool your whole body.

Carla Gugino

The last picture could make me a cup of boiling tea.

And, is it me or does Emily Deschanel bear some resemblance to Tina Fey?

I LOVE the pic of Gillian Anderson. Think I may even have the magazine w/ that pic somewhere in a box...

Watched an X Files Marathon on Netflix and it has really held up well over the years. It's one of the best TV shows ever made.

I may be completely bias on this one, but I believe Bridget Regan deserves a spot in one of your delicious Tank Top Tuesdays.


I'm just sayin'.
