OOTD: Comfy Chic Ft. Local Philly Shop + Artist

Over the past few weeks I've begun to realize that color isn't very common in my wardrobe, so this bold red top was a little different than what I usually opt for (and I am loving it). As you probably already know, I love pairing contrasting styles, and I especially love mixing super casual with dressier pieces, and this outfit is probably one of my favorites yet. I feel like it's something I could wear pretty much anywhere (besides maybe a wedding?)  I'm extremely comfortable while still looking very put together & that is always the goal, am I right or am I right?


DETAILS

This sweatshirt that I picked up from local Philly shop, Ritual Ritual earlier this week, is not only the most comfortable sweatshirt on God's green Earth, but it also has some awesome artwork from Philly-based artist, Aubrie Costello (screen-printed by Awesome Dudes Printing)

The top is from yet another local brand called M Concept Shop, which is located right in Center City Philly on South Street.

Side note: this is one of the few times I've not worn a bra and not felt extremely aware of it. Usually my boobs are like "< >  hello, we're here to make you and everyone around you uncomfortable", but this time it felt good. Although it felt great, I did get some cat calls while walking to my shoot, which kinda ruined all the "feeling great".

Does anyone else have this problem? Wearing something that you feel makes you feel fantastic, but then creeps ruin it? Your once strong sense of confidence has now shriveled up into a ball of shame because some loser couldn't just keep his unnecessary comment to himself. It's extremely frustrating, and hopefully one day I'll be able to walk down the street without the fear of being followed and/or harassed. 

A n y w a y .  

Moral of the story here, this top kicks ass and that's really all that matters.
