So I may be a bit behind the trend of wearing underwear-as-outerwear
especially if we hark back to Madonna donning lace everything in the 80s, but when you see a pretty lace-trim camisole top you just have to go with it, no?
I wore this as far back as Boxing Day (seems so long ago now) – we still like to dress smartly in our family the day after Christmas usually because we have more visitors coming over. And that’s as good an excuse as any for me to dress up a little. I’d bought the cami on a whim a few days earlier, and thought it would look pretty under my black blazer to give my outfit a bit of a masculine-feminine contrast.
As I was already in a wearing-black phase for the festive period, I paired the top/blazer combo with my kick flare trousers (on sale!) and comfy block heeled shoes. This style is the perfect shoe for party season… Wear them all day and you get very little heel ache (well I don’t, luckily).
SHOP THE LOOK:
Anyway I know this cami top is going to be perfect under my white cape – I think I saw a cape worn with a very similar black and white cami which is why I threw it into my virtual basket the second I saw it. Something to note about this top: It’s from the New Look Tall range – but it wasn’t too long for me (I’m 5’7″ and my torso is of average proportions), just in case you click through and are disappointed that it’s for tall people only.
But at this bargain price of £9.50 it’s worth a try…!
And finally: On Saturday I uploaded a brand new blog template, I hope you like the design! I’m so, so pleased with it – good old pipdig blog templates to the rescue once again.
And of course do add your outfits to this week’s link up and if you’ve added a link to here or my button to your post you may be featured next week!

Thank you for joining the #iwillwearwhatilike link up! This started as a campaign on Instagram in August 2015 where women over 30 wore everything on a journalist’s list of “inappropriate” items for 30+ women (including leopard print, short dresses and oversized sunglasses. Yes, really). It was so popular that I decided to carry it on weekly where women of all ages link up their fabulous style, never mind what anyone tells them not to wear!
The link up goes live every Monday at 3pm UK time and will stay open for a week. Whilst the original article was of course aimed at the 30+, you can be ANY age to link up. The only criteria is that you’re wearing whatever you damn well like!
