Daily: Tough Like a Boxer

Here are a few of the comments I received on this shirt: “You look like a warrior or something.” “You look like you have boxing gloves on.” “You could be an archer with sleeves like that.” Out of all those, I think boxer is my pick, although warrior would be pretty cool. On second thought, an archer might be even better because of my love of Legolas in Lord of the Rings (nerd alert!). Here’s the breakdown:

Tee: Kohl’s
Shorts: The Limited
Sandals: Payless
Bag: Garage sale
Rings: Kohl’s/Charming Charlie
Necklace: Kohl’s

I am and always will be in love with leather. This particular T-shirt holds a special place in my wardrobe because of two things: its ease and comfy-ness, and its leather sleeves. Nothing like a splotch of leather to make an outfit go from sweet to tough. I paired it with my purple tweed shorts because I thought the shorts would add quite the contrast with their dressiness and (dare I say) stiffness. The end result in a mixed and textured look that’s both edgy and a little girly.
