See through





Sunnies: Vince Camuto | Earrings: J Crew | Necklace: Ily Couture (option) | Bandeau top: Victoria's Secret | Top: ExpressShorts: Express | Wedges: Valentino (optionbudget option)

The husband was taking these photos of me and all of a sudden says, "I can see right through your shirt!!" Yes, yes, that's the point. Clearly this is not office appropriate, but it's the quintessential summer outfit. I struggle with lace tops - I think they are so pretty, but I kind of hate the look of a tank or cami underneath. I think it kind of ruins it. That's where this lovely bandeau comes in handy. If you remember, I bought this thanks to my sister in law and talked about it more here.

Now, all I need is a day off and barbecue to go to!

  2. Haha! My husband says the same thing! They just don't understand fashion! I am right there with you though, I hate the look of wearing a cami underneath a lace top.. so either a bandeau like you did or I avoid them. Love today's look! Especially those sandals :) <3

    Hope your having a great week!

    1. I don't mind it if it looks like the cami is physically attached to the top, but when it's obvious they're two different pieces, it can be distracting!

  3. This is such a beautiful top and I love how you made it less sweet with the denim shorts and sexy wedges.

  5. Great, after reading your post an Erica's comment now I am self conscious about wearing a cami under a lace shirt! I may be making some returns.... Love your tee & shorts thought! They look so short on the express model but perfect on you!

  9. I love the mint version! I have this same top in white and adore it. I was hesitant to purchase it because of the length, as I'm not generally a crop top gal. I love that this one can actually be tucked in though which is how I've worn it. I always wear a light cami underneath see-through tops because I'm self-conscious but I think a little bandeau would be really cute too. Just need to get one!

  12. Haha that is so funny that it took your hubby a bit to notice that the top is see-through. Too cute. =) I do like this layering on you, Carylee, and I agree it is a great summer look!
