Could this combination get any more perfect? Camo and leather are just a casual, but edgy match made in fashion heaven. Lol! I wore this outfit to a party at the Tommy Hilfiger store in Beverly Hills on my last Thursday night in LA. It was actually the only fashion event I attended while I was there. I had intended to reach out to all my blogger boos to try and arrange a dinner while I was there, but between work, and visiting with friends and family, I just didn’t have time. Usually, when I go home, I’m there for work…I really need to just take a week and go home on vacation so I have more time to visit with people and do fun stuff.
Anyway, while I was there I realized that really miss LA’s laid-back fashion sensibility. My t-shirt and leather shorts fit right in. I’ve mentioned to my friends back home that I sometimes feel underdressed at events here in Atlanta, where everyone is bodyconned down…with stilettos…and a full face of makeup…at all times. I mean, I enjoy a good bodycon from time to time, but I’d just as easily throw on a pair of boyfriend jeans and a basic tank top with a killer pair of heels, and some lip gloss and mascara to go out back home…and I wouldn’t think twice about it. I’ve done that here, and while I was comfortable with my look because it was true to my style, I will admit to feeling a tad bit under dressed and out of place. I definitely feel the pressure to try and dress up a bit more here…but to be honest, when I to step out of my lane, I sometimes end up feeling uncomfortable with my look. So, I guess while I was in LA, I was reminded to just stay true to myself. I don’t seem to have that problem when I’m there, because my style is so in line with LA’s overall aesthetic, which is very faux-effortless. Lol! I say “faux” because LA women spend a lot of time and money perfecting that I-just-woke-up-looking-this-fabulous-look. So, it’s not really effortless at all…it just looks and feels effortless.
Anyway, that rant was totally unplanned! I was supposed to be telling you how you could get this super cute camo tee at Imperfect Concepts Boutique for $28.50. It comes in sizes S – XL, and I got the small. The fit is perfect! It’s a unisex tee as opposed to a fitted women’s tee, so you’ll want to keep that in mind when selecting your size. I wanted a fit a bit closer to the body, especially in the waist, so I went with the small…for a more oversized look, I would have gone with a medium. I rolled the sleeves to give it a more polished look.
