Ruffle Camis and Blue Pencil Skirts For The Office | Weekday Wear Linkup

Summer time means I get my camis out, and wonder why I never wear them! These spaghetti strap ruffle camis are so fun to wear, even though in most offices you'll have to cover them up, with a cardigan like I did in the first outfit, or a blazer in the second. I've got another edition of my weekly linkup you can join at the end too!

What I wore:

SkirtAsos blue textured lace pencil skirt
ShoesMarc by Marc Jacobs silver tuxedo flats
BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

As mentioned above, I did throw a cardi on over this in the office, but it was much too hot that morning to take pics with it on!

When I was thinking up what to wear to work I was surprised to see that I hadn't worn these pieces together before! They are both older pieces in my wardrobe, and I've worn this blue lace skirt with white tops in the past, just not this cami. I really liked the combination. Simple for a hot day and the subtle pleated texture to the cami worked really well with the textured pencil skirt I thought.

Of course with the navy skirt I had to pick a navy bag, so I went with this Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag for a little matchy-matchy. This bag is a great neutral base, perfect for further accessorising so I added my new llama keychain. 😂 I have a lot of fun bag charms, but this one made me smile as soon as I saw it and I knew I had to buy it right away! I added more colour to my outfit with this dotty necklace, such a great accessory with the blue and white.

BagRebecca Minkoff Regan Satchel Tote in moon

Why I wore it:

A little cooler this morning (although not by much!) so I had my blazer on in photos. This cami looks a bit rumpled in the photos, but it was a pleasure to wear. Again, it was a simple outfit, I like peach and navy together so the jacquard skirt and plain ruffle cami seemed like a good pairing. I was in a bit of a rush that morning though and not feeling the best, so a hastily half tucked cami is what you get!

I actually wasn't sure I'd make it through the whole day at work, but with a lot of meetings I powered through and got to the end of the day. Overall I liked this outfit as much as the one above, I just didn't enjoy wearing it as much as I wasn't feeling the best!

Ruffle Camis Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A classic cami and pencil skirt is a work staple! In most offices, spaghetti straps are frowned on or just not allowed in the office dress code. It's easy to cover up and make your look a little more formal with a blazer, perfect for a day of meetings! Or if your office is a little more casual like mine you could just throw a cardigan on top.

  27. That little llama charm stands out in these two outfits! I've tied scarves to my bags, but I have never tried a charm! They are so fun! I need to get a few on my wish list. They would be a great gift idea! Both of these outfits are really cute! I got rid of many of my camis years ago because I hated wearing strapless bras. Now I'm trying to find a few neutral ones I could wear with blazers and cardigans!

    1. They are such good gift ideas - I got my bestie one of these too and included it with her Christmas present! :) Try getting a cami with a thicker straps, you can see on the first one, so you don't need to go strapless! :)

  36. I really like the ruffle camis - I don't have one and I think I'm going to trade in some that I don't wear this year for one with the ruffle (buy one, donate...sell...whatever... two). I really love the second look best because I, too, love the peach and navy together. The patterns on both skirts are beautiful. And I love the llama keychain - what a great little accent! I'm sorry you weren't feeling well and I hope it wasn't long-lasting. I love the idea of a link-up and look forward to going through it when I have a little more time.
