I’m back! Well I’ve got a little spare time to myself after getting my head round baby No 2, and what a gorgeous little bundle she is but jeez, two is a whole other world! Never the less it’s good to be back on the laptop and hopefully writing something you guys might enjoy reading.
It’s a nice easy piece to get myself back in the saddle, but it’s totally relevant and about a item of clothing that I’ve never really been that bothered about, till now – the cami.
Once a piece of attire you kept as sleepwear or as something to team under a sheer top, but now camis are most definitely taking center stage. I’ve never been that fussed by them, always opting for a bit more of a statement top to wear with jeans, trousers or a skirt, but we had a wedding not long after baby No2 arrived and whilst I was tearing my hair out over what to wear, I managed to find a beautiful Whistles skirt at my local ‘preloved’ shop Friends Dress Agency. Check them out by the way, Victoria, who owns Friends is fabulous and has some incredible stock. Anyway, I needed a top and had no idea where I was going track something down with T-12hours till my flight to Ireland. Luckily New Look came to the rescue with the most perfect silky cami in navy, which you can see here, along with my new arrival and the hubs.
This off the cuff purchase for a dressy affair has now become part of my everyday wardrobe. It’s pretty much my ‘go to top’ instead of a black, white or grey tee, regardless of what I’m wearing, see below for some inspiring ways to wear.
I’m not the only one who sees the worth of a humble cami, the high street is full of them whether you’re doing dressed up or down, spring, summer, autumn or winter there is a cami for every occasion. You probably even have one tucked away in your underwear draw, or screwed up in the back of the wardrobe. If you do dig it out and give it a new lease of life, or have a look at some of the below and treat yourself. You’ll be impressed, I promise.
