Believe it or not, but I purchased this lovely little camisole in a lingerie store many moons ago…and yes, it really is supposed to be underwear!!
Seriously, though…who would want to cover up such prettiness?? The bodice detail and the red-floral-on-white pattern are about as feminine as it gets; plus that gauzy fabric is ideal for a sweltering August afternoon.
Not that I’m complaining about our recent heatwave, by any means – I have a ton of warm-weather outfit options; far more than really makes sense for someone who lives in a country where summer typically only lasts about eight weeks.
These abbreviated boyfriends, for example; I found them at H&M back when spring first sprung several months ago, but I’m only now wearing them for the very first time!! I love the contrast of the über-girlish top against the relaxed, slouchy feel of the denim shorts and my favourite Aldo booties… and even though layering my buffalo-checked, sleeveless shirt wasn’t exactly a necessity in the heat, I couldn’t resist adding one extra touch of tomboy to finish off my look!!
What’s your verdict on my attempt at “underwear as outerwear,” dear readers?? Have you ever experimented with something similar yourselves??
