Wearing a Cami

Cami: Express ~ Jeans: Old Navy ~ Cami: Target similar here and here ~ Shoes: Steve Madden

A cami is that perfect top that can be worn for layering under items of clothing. I would consider this is be a basic that should be in every woman’s wardrobe. Most people like to layer camis but you can also wear it on it’s own. I find them to go great with various looks. Under a cardigan, alone with jeans, or as a layering piece.

I like camis under cardigans or sweaters. In today’s post you see I am wearing my yellow cami under a camo cardigan. It adds some texture, plus it is something other than a plain tee. I recommend that if you are in the process of building your wardrobe start with a black and white cami. Of course you should always invest in your basics but there are so many places you can find basic camis. I found this yellow cami on sale here.

I like these silk texture camis as an alternative to wearing t-shirts when I have a casual outfit. I am such a jeans and t-shirt type of girl but it can get boring really quick. I encourage you to find different ways to create looks that still make you feel comfortable.

Hello Friends, I hope you all have a great weekend. I was most excited to send the weekend inside resting and relaxing because of the rain. I’m sad to report that did not happen for me this weekend because it barely rained. I shouldn’t be complaining because I could have been stuck inside because of a hurricane. So let me count my blessings.

I actually, though I donated this shirt a few years back, and was sad about it. I wore this to my bridal shower and never really thought I would wear it again. Here I am wishing and wanting a white lace shirt, and I never got rid of it. Turns out I never took the bag to the thrift store. I guess I win šŸ™‚

Over the years, I’ve moved away from the preppy ascetic and would consider myself to have more of a classic style. I’ve truly embraced this style simply because I like to have pieces of clothes that will stand the test of time.

One of my favorite style icons is Jackie O… I love her chic yet classic style. When I styled this look, it reminded me of my summers spent sailing. Too bad, I’ve only been sailing in my head, but the look is still super cute.

Jeans and a t-shirt is always an easy go too when you want to just throw on something for the day. If you find the right fitting jeans and a super cute t-shirt. Your outfit will always work. My favorite type of t-shirt is screen tees. Although, I am very very particular about the type of phrases or sayings I wear on my shirts. I like the phrases to mean something to me.

I’ve been on the hunt for a great screen tee with Christain scripture or quotes. Oddly enough, I know a great couple who owns a faith-based clothing boutique. It has been really fun watching this boutique grow from a kids boutique to a family boutique.

A few months ago, I wanted a new shirt for my trip to California and Beacon Threads was having a sale, so I thought this would be a great time to try their products. I wasn’tĀ surprised when I received the shirt and found the quality to be amazing. Now that I get theĀ emails and sales promotions, I actually made another order that will be featured soon. One thing you should know is that the sizes are on the larger size, but that makes the items even more comfortable and honestly more versatile.

A shirt dress, one of the most comfortable items in my closet. I have a few in my closet in different styles. They come in handy on so many occasions. I mostly find myself wearing them to work on a Friday.

I have this rule I follow regarding dress down Fridays. Do it with class. I like to wear more casual looks on Friday, but you will never see me wearing jeans. On those days when I just need something to work. I denim shirt dress will always do the trick.

I think this may be my favorite addition to my spring wardrobe this year (so far). I tend to have a hard time finding spring or summer dresses that are long enough. I love this dress because it covers my arms.Ā  Dresses on the shorter side with long sleeves adds balance to a dress. I also love the idea that this dress is casual simply because I love wearing sneakers with dresses. ComfortĀ is always key šŸ™‚
