When Tomboy Met Girlie

Even when summer hits, there are still the occasional days that are more chilly than one could care for, but it can allow for a good break from skimpy tanks and cutoffs. Exhibit A: leather shorts. Leather is just way too hot for the scorching July heat, but when it cools down at nighttime or if it's a particularly breezy, cloudy day, then it can be the prefect style antidote. Although it wasn't summer yet, that's what happened a couple of weeks ago with the outfit you see yonder. The skies were grey without showing any signs of potential clouds bursting into rain, complete with soft winds and a dash of humidity. Leather shorts were my solution, but to avoid over heating, i grabbed a sheer knit that feels like nothing short of a veil. I also decided to throw my hair in a french braid to avoid helmet hair, since i was going on a long bike ride. Final result: a tomboy look that with a girlie finish!
