Slouchy Saturday // Listen to What You Like

Greetings, friends!

I’m wrapping up an excellent weekend with a my slouchy weekend outfit from yesterday. I rolled out of bed on Saturday morning to go to breakfast at The Daily with Bonny – we met up with our bestie from college Lizew and Sarah, her sister. They’re in town for a little family vacay, which means we get to see our girl!

I had leftover hair from Friday night that I brushed through and threw on this easy tee and my new (old) favorite jeans. I’ve had them for a few years and I stopped wearing them about a year ago because I didn’t love them. Recently, I cut holes and distressed them and now they feel like a completely new pair.

I spent the afternoon with Steven in Park Circle getting our favorite pizza at EVO. This place is a #1 must-try in visiting Charleston.

Later that night, I headed to theatre 34 West for a show with Lizew and her family and then enjoyed dancing to the performers at the night market. It was such a lovely day.

This outfit was perfect for the daytime. It’s comfy, but still has enough personality to make you feel good.

The Look: Leather Jacket - Paige (I found mine at Nordstrom Rack for 60% less), New York Tee - Madewell (similar style), Distressed Denim - J Crew Factory (similar style), Shoes - Sam Edelman (similar here), Sunglasses - Quay

For my tune I *gasp* picked Harry Styles’ new single, Sign of the Times. If you haven’t heard about it, you may have been hiding under a rock. My dear friends Rachel and Mimi have been One Direction o b s e s s e d for years and I will admit, Rachel had to convince me to give this a serious listen.

I was pleasantly surprised by what I heard. The tune is more glam rock ballad than anything, and a full five minutes long.

Despite the fact that I think it can get a little repetitive, I genuinely enjoy the throwback feel of the song, which is more important than keeping my musical snobbery in-tact on this blog… plus, at the end of the day, music is about your own personal enjoyment, NOT impressing anyone. I think the worst thing about running in a crowd that listens to a lot of great music is that it’s easy to get swept away in what others think. This is counteractive to what music is supposed to do – allow your own self-expression. Moral of the story: listen to what you want.
