Camo Tee

It’s the mid 90s. I’m celebrating my 11th birthday at Pizza Hut in Amman wearing a semi-midriff camo tee with baggy jeans. I thought I was the coolest thing in the Middle East that day. I planned to wear that shirt weeks in advance. Not to mention, parents were most definitely not invited to this little outing – just me and my two best friends. I stayed in that shirt all throughout the cake portion of the birthday back at the apartment and even halfway through the big sleepover. I have a picture of this special day, and special tee, somewhere in an old trunk. That’s what I think of every time I wear this camo tee.

Although a reoccurring trend,  I am loving military inspired pieces this fall. In particular camouflage t-shirts and utility jackets. However, I love this print the same way I love animal print: in moderation. I was thrilled when I found this shirt at the thrift store in the little boys’ section not only because it took me back to that special birthday in the Abdoun Circle Pizza Hut but because it’s so versatile. I paired it with a $3 maxi skirt from the Marc’s closeouts for an easy comfortable outfit. I can’t wait to wear this shirt with everything this fall including blazers, black skinny pants, and layered with other prints.
