Girls Girls Girls Tee from Aloher by Wegan for Pride

Pride Month and just life in general have been bananas lately… But I just had to share this amazing tee from my fave femme duo, Wegan. Their tee line, Aloher, is an absolute favorite of mine! I’m obsessed with all of their designs but this one has to be my favorite. It definitely got some amazing compliments and attention while at Pride Fest this past weekend.
