For probably five years or more, I routinely sought outfit approval from the man of questionable honor. He has received far more photos of me in dressing rooms than I could ever count. During those first few years, I would rarely get it right and would often receive a firm and honest “No” in response. Gradually, I began to figure it out. I would get less of “Start all over again” and more of “Switch the pants,” “Add a belt,” or “Lose the jacket.” Small victories, but none the less, victories.
And then in the past year, I managed to finally, at long last, get my groove back – specifically of the fashion variety.
Yes, I do still occasionally text Brandon with the random pair of shoes asking if I’m crazy for liking them and a few weeks ago he got a text from me seeking confirmation that the leather jacket did in fact work with the shirt and shoes I was wearing. On both accounts, I was in the clear.
The Man of Questionable Honor has taught me well in the fashion department, particularly the importance of stylish footwear and good accessories.
All that being said, we’re going to throw in a little fashion around here. Similar to my decorating style, my fashion style isn’t always, in fact rarely ever, your basic run of the mill looks. I mean, I do prefer to fly my freak flag, right?

Slouchy Chic is a 100% verified fashion term, don’t you know?
That’s a lie. I completely made that shit up.
I define Slouchy Chic as being in comfy clothes, but chic at the same time. It’s kind of like a life hack. You might be slightly faking it, but you’re rocking the slightly faking it at the same time.

People look at you and think you totally have it together, but you rarely do. Ok, you never do.
This outfit is basically just jeans and a light sweatshirt, which is only $10 by the way, so yes, I bought it in two colors, but those leopard print flats, a must in my book for all wardrobes,the leopard handbag, and floppy fedora hat kick it up quite a few notches.
Also, the hat helps to conceal bad hair days or when you just don’t want to wash your hair. Of course, I always wash my hair on a regular basis though. And by regular I mean, like every four days. Thank ya Jesus for dry shampoo.
This one is a tad bit more dressed up with the Bordeaux clutch instead of a handbag.
Still though, it’s just a basic t-shirt, a $15 one that is super soft, jeans and yes, my leopard print flats again. You can partially tuck the t-shirt in to look a little more put together and to show off a bit of that leopard print belt. Make your shoes and belt match and you’re golden. 😉 The horn necklace also adds detail to the outfit. That necklace is one of my favorites – I wear it with so many outfits.
This outfit is one of my favorites to run errands in. From the sweatshirt to the shoes, this outfit is super comfy, while still being cute.
This sweatshirt is a tad bit heavier than the sweatshirt from the first outfit, but man is it super cozy. It came from this Etsy shop and I love so many of their designs. I’m planning to get more tops from them just as soon as I can narrow it down.
Grunt Labor calls this my sorority girl look. I wasn’t in a sorority so I don’t know anything about that, but I do still love this quarter zip for an easy pulled together look.
The Circus also has a matching quarter zip with her monogram on it. Grunt bought the Mommy and Me set for us for Valentine’s Day. You can also buy the the women’s quarter zip by itself as well. I like adding the contrasting pink gingham shirt under the quarter zip for an extra pop of color. I’m also partial to the green handbag with this outfit as well.
Ok gals, time to go get our Slouchy Chic on!
