Two-styles Tuesday: the striped cami

OK, so I totally just made up the theme "Two-styles Tuesday" right this second. I take a handful of blog outfit photos over the weekend, with no particular plan on which day I want each outfit to go live on the blog. More often than not, I end up staring at all of my outfit photos for a few minutes debating on a posting order. If I can tie it to some kind of theme, it makes the process a lot easier. Hence, Two-styles Tuesday was born! I could have just called it Remix Tuesday, but alliteration always wins in my book!

Sunnies: Ray Ban (other colors here) | Necklaces: CS Gems (c/o) (tassel option here - use code CARYLEE15 for 15% off!) | Bag: Longchamp | Cami: Express (other colors/patterns here) (alternate options herehere and here) | Bracelets: JCrew, Nadri | Shorts: American Eagle (similar here) | Sandals: Sam Edelman

You know I love remixing (so long as it's not related to a capsule of some sort…) and this cami is a great piece to do just that. If it's not raining here, it's a thousand degrees with one million percent humidity, so camis and shorts are basically a necessity. Year after year I turn to American Eagle to build my shorts collection. The fit is great for my body type, and they're just really soft and comfortable. I realized I never showcased these lunchtime purchased espadrilles on the blog yet, and luckily, they finished off this summertime look quite nicely.

And here are the two looks featuring this cami side by side. I was worried that this cami wasn't going to be as versatile as some of my other striped tops I have in my wardrobe since the stripes are so close together, but from a distance, they kind of disappear anyway so it still pairs nicely with many things. I love that I'm able to create two pretty different looks from the same piece. I could take it one step dressier tucked into my cobalt blue pencil skirt with my white pumps. I will have to do that next!

  4. Ooh, thanks again for another outfit pairing idea for this cami! (I hope they re-stock it!!! It should be a staple!) I have a pair of chino shorts in almost this exact color so I can't wait to try this!

  5. I love the stripes and the burgundy shorts together. Those shoes are perfect too!

  6. Cute cami! I keep debating on whether to pick up a striped version since I have solids. Oh and one floral cami too which I need to pull out more often!

  7. I ADORE those wedges! Such a great look!
