May Grey

Cami NYC Racer Stripe Silk Cami with lace

Fun fact: my favorite color is grey. Also, I like spelling grey with an “e” vs. an “a” because I think it looks better. However, it confuses my spell checkers which then start to suggest British-English versions of words like “favourite” and “colour”.

Another fun fact: This cami is one of those “makes the outfit” pieces that elevate a look with minimal effort. It’s a well-done and luxe silk satin with eyelash lace, perfect under a blazer or jacket, and the mix of pinstripes and lace creates interest and edge while still remaining minimalistic and clean. I’m wearing size xs which is loose in a flirty way, and it looks best when worn without a bra to accentuate that low neckline and lace trim. If you have pasties or those sticky gel bras, this would be a good top to wear them with. Or just let the girls loose for a night out. ;)

Fair warning: this cami doesn’t have adjustable straps so it would need a simple shortening if you’re petite and wanted to wear it for work or just prefer a more modest neckline.

  • Dear Kelly. What a sexy, simple and stylish look (for outside the classroom of course – pupils would focus too much on what I am wearing than on what I am teaching). Like you, I adore the colour grey and I love the way you always show so many stylish yet sporty outfits with a colour that has this somewhat serious undertone. Thanks for the inspiration. Love, Lieske
