SlouchOnTheCouch

Some weekends are designed for slouching.  This means giving the little black dresses and high heels a rest and putting on my favourite comfortable clothes, getting a nice bottle of wine and watching the Superbowl (I’m so sorry, America) catching up on Midsummer Murders (England, sorry if I’ve let you down there too) writing to friends back home in London and taking it easy.  I recently decided to make a trip back to the UK in just a couple of weeks as I was feeling a little homesick, which means that with New York Fashion Week, flights, travelling within the UK to see family and friends and London Fashion Week just around the corner, this was the perfect weekend to slouch and re-group some energy for the hectic time ahead.

My favourite slouching clothes are all about the feel of the fabric and fiber on my skin.  I love this T by Alexander Wang grey marled draped muscle dress (picture directly above) not just for its name but for the very cute draped twist at the back.  Made of stretch jersey material, the fabric is opaque and it’s body con style which isn’t an obvious choice for slouching I know – it’s just the simplicity of the design that is so perfect.  The dress is a simple item of clothing you don’t need to worry about.  You throw it on and head to the sofa.

I’ve featured Between The Sheets on the blog before but I’ll say it again, their lounge-wear is the best.  Their Well Played collection, rich in micro modal that gives it that super soft feel is a favourite for lazy weekends.  I chose the soft champagne peach colour for this cardigan but there is a great choice of palette: bamboo (an aqua sorbet colour), dusk (a deep blue), dawn (off white) shade (mid purple) and midnight (black). Their halter neck tunic goes with shorts, leggings and jeans and it’s a super flattering shape.

What a shame to be back at work, Blog Reader. Then again, you know I love my little black dresses and heels….

Give it up, Blog Reader – what do you slouch around in (and other Fashion Bloggers I’ll be interested in your answers here too!)??
