How To Wear A Slouchy: Two Ways

Happy December! This year really seems to be flying by, or is that just me? I still feel like 2016 only started a few weeks ago! It's slightly terrifying that time is passing by so quickly this year since I'll be in the "real world" in a few short months, but even so I'm happy we're finally in December. It's my favorite month of the year because everyone is always extra festive. I love driving around seeing the glow of Christmas lights, baking cute holiday themed cookies, and the overwhelming presence of family during this time. I could go on and on about how much I love December, but let's get on with the post! Also, apologies in advance for how picture heavy this post is!

  There's honestly nothing better than when comfort and fashion find a way to blend together perfectly. Whether it be in your favorite t-shirt dress, a great pair of trendy leggings, or these cute over-sized long sleeved Slouchy Dolman Tunics (only $24!). If you've seen me lately, you probably think I don't have anything else in my closet besides these two tops since I wear them so often! I wore them all throughout Thanksgiving break with my family, and they're definitely up there as being one of the most comfortable things I own. (Including worn-in pajamas, and that's saying something!)

So today I thought I would share my two favorite ways to wear the slouchies from The Mint Julep Boutique, to show you just how versatile these pieces can be. I decided to do a more casual look with the Rust slouchy and a dressier look with the Serenity (baby blue) slouchy. Although, I planned to wear a necklace with the latter, I unfortunately forgot most of my jewelry when I went home for break! 


Look 1: Casual Rust






This look has actually been on repeat these last few weeks! It's been getting chilly here in SoCal, obviously not as chilly as Lake Tahoe where these photos were taken since there's no snow here, but still! It's easy to throw on for class, and can easily transition into something your can wear out for a casual dinner or a walk around town while you run errands! I love the color of this rust slouchy, because this color is the epitome of fall for me. It's almost a pumpkin-ish color, but it doesn't scream bold like a bright orange would. It's more of a muted tone, which makes it easier to treat it as a neutral. 

Look 2: Dressy Serenity






The second I saw this baby blue Serenity slouchy I knew I had to pick it up. I don't own anything in this color, but I absolutely love it. It adds a nice touch of brightness, but again without being too in your face about it. I thought pairing it with white jeans and some sparkly gold flats would make it a little more of a dressed up look without it being too flashy. The color is even more gorgeous in person, and I think if I'm not careful my whole closet is eventually going to turn baby blue because it's just so pretty and flattering. This is the perfect outfit for heading to a nicer restaurant, giving a more formal presentation (provided you don't require business casual), or strolling through the mall with friends.

Which look is your favorite? How would you style your slouchy?
