It's a rare opportunity that I have enough time to take some snaps of my outfits (I know, excuses!), as I'm either dashing off to work, at home in lounge-wear or it's raining outside! Yet, when I quickly nabbed this silk cami number up I couldn't wait to share it with you all. And, when I'm at uni in beautiful London almost every day, with my new photography edition in tow, I'll be sure to share more ootd's on here.
I've been on the hunt for a silk cami for a little while and I blame both Pinterest and Instagram for my obsession. Choker-clad bloggers and levis-sporting fashionistas all don glossy, silk camisoles (lornaluxe is a current obsession of mine, see here and here for what I mean!). This garment should not just be restricted to the long, hot days of summer though due it's lightweight fabric and spaghetti straps. Update it for Autumn by teaming it with chunky cashmere cardigans, ruggid denim and chunky boots, or like me, pair it with a leather jacket and iridescent flats to give a rocker vibe.
This is definitely the kind of garment that I immediately turn to the high street for, and New Look thankfully read my mind and had one ripe for the picking. I never usually shop in this store, but I am true believer in finding hidden gems in anywhere if you carefully look. Of course, I would like a real silk cami as it is a classic piece, but I genuinely don't see the point when high-street alternatives (especially for £10!) are equally as good.
I’m conscious of not being that fast fashion victim and shopping non-stop for bargains and trends, but we all need the odd injection of something a little more interesting without breaking the bank from time to time.
There's something about a silk cami that I just adore. I can't quite pin if it's the glossy fabric that slips through the fingers when touched, the fact that I love juxtaposing something feminine with something tough, or the sensuality of it due its association with lingerie.
