Here's a stunning blouse to finish off the week. The Deep V Lace Trim Cami by Miguelina Michelle is mostly silk, has a deep V-neck, velvet trim around the empire waist, lace trim detail at the neckline and down the front, a rhinestone circle adornment at the front at the waist, slight ruching at the bust, and a side zipper.

Let's have a couple from Ya-Ya day as we found a couple of really cute ones. First is the Martini Shirt. It has a deep V-neck, a keyhole at the back, and banding and ruching at the cuffs of the long sleeves. It's simple yet very elegant, and we love how you could wear it with a variety of different bottoms.
The second top is the Ribbon Cami Tank. Made mostly of silk, it has ruffle trim and chiffon detailing at the bust and the empire waist. There is also pleating at the front, ruching at the bust, spaghetti straps, and five buttons on the side. Comes in three colors, silver, black, and rose.

Now, this next blouse is not for everyone, but we think some of you could certainly pull it off. The Vintage Lace Camisole by Cynthia Steffe has an embroidered bodice and heart printed vintage lace trim along the neck and straps, making it about as girly as a top can be. If you are looking for something ultra-feminine, this might be it. There is also an empire waist and cotton netting at the bottom hem and the wide straps.

We really love the contrasting colors of this next top the Cami in Jersey with Crinkle Chiffon in dusty by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent. This soft cami has an empire waist with smocked banding, chiffon trim at the V-neck and bottom hems, and adjustable spaghetti straps. It also comes in grey, but the contrast of the chiffon and the rest of the cami isn't quite as great.

There are some really pretty floral tank tops by Rebecca Taylor that we really want to show you all. The first is the Gathered Cami in Aegean Sea. This top is 100% silk with a 100% silk lining. It has ruching at the bust, bows at the straps and at the bust, and rough edges along the bust and straps.
Next is the Wrap Flower Printed Chiffon Cami. This tank is also 100% silk and is lined. It has a tie at the bust, pointelle detailing at the V-neck, smocking at the back, and ruffle trim along the spaghetti straps.
Finally there is the Sexy Cami in Sunkissed. This tank has lace detailing along the V-neck and at the bust, a small bit of ruching at the bust, adjustable spaghetti straps, and smocking at the back. And it's also 100% silk as well and lined.

We really like this next top, the Cotton Lawn Cami by James Perse. It's simple and pretty, and sometimes we like our shirts that way. Made of 100% cotton, this cami is semi-sheer with ruching at the bust, eyelet detailing at the empire waist and bottom hem, and a drawstring at the waist that ties in the front. The spaghetti straps are adjustable as well. Comes in five colors, pale linen, kiss, swan, abyss, and white.

Happy Monday everyone! Let's start the week off right with this cute camisole by Rebecca Taylor. Both the shell and the lining on the Sparkle Babydoll Cami are 100% silk, the spaghetti straps are adjustable, and there's smocking at the back. Beads and sequins cover the top of the bust in a flowery pattern. It's a little revealing but still a fun top, perfect for a night out on the town!

We just found this cute camisole from Ya-Ya, the Kuta Cami. It's a cotton silk mix with a silk lining. There is a four button closure at the bust, lace trim at the bust, bottom hem, and down the body, and there are spaghetti straps. A tie is also at the waist. We really like the pink print, but it also comes in white.

White is the big thing right now, we know that. Personally, the Shirt Snob finds it hard to get behind white bottoms, we just see too many potentially bad things going on there. However, we love the white top! Here's an adorable one, the Cami with Butterfly from Paul & Joe. Made of 100% silk with 100% cotton trim, this camisole is semi-sheer with adjustable spaghetti straps. At the bust is the butterfly embroidery. Sheer lace is also at the top and bottom hems. Wear it with white bottoms, jeans, or something else, whatever works for you. But wear white, it's a great color for the spring.

Happy Monday everyone! We hope you had a great weekend! To start off the week, let's look at this beautiful cami by Catherine Malandrino (yes another one from her, we just love her this season!). The Pleated Babydoll Top has lace and embroidery detail at the bust that continues to the back. A sheer, metailic stripe overlay is on the silk body. There is wire support, pin-tuck detail at the bust, and pleating at the empire waist. A hidden zipper is at the back, and the spaghetti straps are adjustable. This top is lightweight, so it's a great addition to your summer wardrobe.
