Cami Slips & Hypocrites

The cami slip is one item that you need to invest in this season.

Today, I've given mine a beach-y, boho edge with lace shorts and Coachella-inspired accessories.

Plus: I share what I really look like when I blog...

If these posts were provided with webcam footage of me as I’m writing them, you would shut your laptop right now. Although you may think I’m donning some sort of pretty dress, adorned with jewellery and rocking a full face of makeup, I’m not. As a matter of fact, I’m wearing Sesame St PJs, absolutely zero makeup and my hair is about as sexy as a pile of hay.

I call it off-duty blogger. Jokes aside, does this make me a huuuge hypocrite? Would you take fashion advice from a chick who has the cookie monster plastered over her chest and isn’t even wearing a bra? 

Working from home, sometimes I don’t leave the house and, if I work first thing in the morning, I WILL be in my undies or PJs. 

In celebration of this, I thought I’d style up one of my favorite trends at the moment, the suitably underwear-esque slip cami. Due to my beach-y climate, I left the expected minimal element of this trend aside and boho-ed it up to the max. 

I added my fave 'John Lennon' sunnies and boho choker to make it appropriate for the Aussie Summer. The hat was the perfect way to banish sweaty hair, as sweaty hair is only appropriate when I'm stuck at home, glued to a laptop, writing away.

And if you expect a post on Sesame St PJs any time soon, it's not gonna happen!


  1. That doesn't make you a hypocrite, Rachel, that makes you one of us normal people and someone who I can relate to. Can I love you even more? I love how honest you are about the reality of fashion blogging and your attitude and approach towards blogging reminds me of another fashion blogger whom I highly respect, Jalisa (The Style Contour). She's also very down to earth, an absolute sweetheart and like you, she's one of the rare few who actually took time to visit other's blog, read and leaves the sweetest and most genuine comments. Love you both.

  2. Lol, I totally feel you on this post. Isn't that what most of us do? Blog in our most comfiest of clothes? I do!! I do love the lingerie mixup trend that's happening. You did great with this look!


  3. Paradise <3

  4. Loving all the lace! Beautiful photo spot too!


  5. That lace shorts is so cute. And about your look when you blog, you are not alone. Most of us do that. I know I do. right now, I'm only in my undies, messed up hair, no makeup. And it's not because I just woke up. Woke up like 4 hours ago but I'm home alone so I'm feeling free.


  6. haha I totally feel you :D loved this post and yay, I am all in my pyamas then too :D i love this cute shorts with the lace details and that top, the perfect combo <3

  7. Girl, I totally feel you. That doesn't make you a hypocrite though, it just means you'e honest and know how to balance style and comfort. Great post love!

  8. That's exactly me when I'm wring a blog post, so no worries. I feel like we all look like that in the comfort of our homes.
    I love the hat and the sunglasses to this look!

  9. Those sunnies are soooo goood! you look amazing hun!

  10. You look amazing pretty! I totally agree with you!

  11. I would rather read your posts and hear your honesty than fawn over those overly-filtered and perfected fashion bloggers that think they are above everyone (like Gal Meets Glam or Pink Peonies). And like Shireen said, we really appreciate you commenting on our blog. Keep doing you and keep being real (and keep rocking Cookie Monster!)


  12. Beautiful outfit! This top is just wonderful! Cute pics!

  16. love the hat. very nice look!

  17. Posts like this are my favourites. I rarely do outfit posts anymore, but when I do I have either no makeup or very minimal, haha. I work remotely as well and often I find most of writing times are done casually. I appreciate when bloggers visit and comment on my blog not just when they have a new post. You look great! xx/Madison

  18. Hahha, well if you'd see me right now! I'm sitting on my bed with messy hair and am in desperate need of a shower! But we still know fashion, so we can definitely talk about it hahah! Xx

  19. Haha, same here, I totally feel you! And loved this post by the way!

  20. I'm loving camis and also these sunglasses are perfect!

  21. That cami slip top is truly divine babe! I'm still a little scared of wearing cami slip tops myself. I don't know why.. But I love it on you!

  22. I totally agree with you 200% babe! Love how unique and honest you are. I just adore you and I love everything about this post.
    Xx, Raysa

  23. This definitely is a Coachella-inspired look and I'm loving it! I'm also incredibly jealous you're heading into the summer months and are pulling out all your cute, hot weather clothes!

  24. I always love how honest u r in ur posts Rachel ! It doesn't even matter what u are wearing because u always pull off every look! Seriously. I can relate to this on so many levels and so glad to be reading this post right now. I'm all about the cami tops and wondering why I don't have more right now.. anyway hope all is well and chat soon girl!:-)

  25. I really love your shorts! <3

  26. I am completely with you and as soon as I am home from work, the PJs go on! A girl needs to be comfortable sometimes! I love camis like this with some lace detail or embellishment and they are great for wearing under things in winter :) x

  27. Dear Rachel, I think it makes sense to feel as comfortable as possible when working form home :) Working from home has definitely its advantages ... Your suit is extremely cool and I love the shots in general! Thanks for sharing so much beach feeling and have a lovely rest of the week!

  28. Beautiful outfit! xx

  29. I think you should be as comfy as you want to be when working from home, I also work from home, I am often in my pjs for a while but most days I dress up a bit I learned my lesson haha. Most days I get packages from pr companies delivered or unexpected visits and they insist on taking pics and a few times I was in my pjs , haha so blind. Therefore If I am working at home and not out for events or meetings always make sure I look half decent :)

    Aside from that I love the cami slip look :)

    Hope you have a lovely thursday xx

  30. I totally admired you dear, you had just show who you really are and I was amazed with that. I love you sunnies!

  31. Haha in no way does that make you a hypocrite! We all have our off duty, and on duty looks!

    xoxo, Cinddie

  36. Lovely post!

  37. Hi Rachel...thank you for being honest hun as your post represents the way most of us tackle our Bloggerly duties... fresh-faced and au natural! LoL as I'm writing this post, I've yet to get my Bloggerly gear on. You know what I'm talking about... the hair, the makeup, the lovely outfit that may or may not drive me insane by the end of the day. Kudos to you for keeping it real for the rest of us.


  38. Forever fierce and all the beachy and beautiful my gorgeous girlie! Your reflective sunnies are all the tropical, can totally feel all the good, chilled out, sunshine vibes just from looking at them and their gorge glory. Adoring the cuteness of the cami-slip on you, eternally stylish with the lush lacy shorts and the badass beachy, boho edge. So much LOVE! As always, set at such a pure paradisal backdrop of babin' beach, you're the ultimate tropical stunner <3

    I absolutely love that you write blog posts make-up free in PJS, because that's all the relatable and I'm totally always doing the same thing too ;) I did a mental HURRAH when I read this, you are about as far from a hypocrite as there ever was! I love how honest and down to earth you are beaut, it's so refreshing. In RL I often pop out with hardly make-up and have often worried myself stupid at blog events because I think people won't relate me and my blog together as I know I look a lot better in my pics/online. If people judge then screw them, right? Cheers to you times a mill Rach, you're absolutely amazing!

  39. Loving this casual look, girl. And the beach looks inviting.
    Your sunnies is also gorgeous.

  40. You are so right dear, as a blogger, I always spend most of the time in my sweats without makeup which makes me so different from the person in the photos. Sometimes as bloggers we need to be real with our readers and show them that it's not all glitz and glamour so that we can keep it real with them. On a fashion note you look chic! Love the outfit!

  41. I lounge about in my PJs most of the time too when I'm not going out, it's just a lot more convenient! I don't think it makes you a hypocrite, I'm a beauty blogger and I normally just apply the same 3 beauty products in the morning. I love seeing these relate-able posts too :) xx

  42. If that's being a hypocrite then I guess I'm a hypocrite too ;) Haha, that's the issue with the internet, but I think it's sweet from you to state (in such a cute way) that you're not this perfect version of yourself 24/7. <3 Your outfit is so cool and trendy, and I love the 'John Lennon sunnies'! :)
    Have a nice week, dear!!

  43. Haha that's all of us! We're all somewhere in PJs. We may or may not have left the house in a week and we're probably not going to get dressed until it's time to take pictures for Instagram. Well . . . that's might be a bit dramatic but I've definitely had weeks like that.
