Maybe it is just me, but I have noticed that the trending ensemble for summer activities is a t-shirt, Nike shorts, and sandals. Here, in Birmingham, you will see LOTS of teenagers sporting the oversized pocket tees, Nike shorts, and Chacos with their hair and makeup fixed perfectly.  No, I am not bashing the fashion. Every girl needs their “play” clothes–even fashionistas like me!  Whenever I make a quick run to Target, you will most likely see me in Nike running shorts, a t-shirt, my lovely green Chacos, and a messy top bun or side pony tail–there you go, paparazzi.  Now, you know where to snap a picture of me when I am not all dolled up.  You’re welcome.

Now don’t get me wrong…I am all about being comfortable, but I cannot resort to wearing my hair down, with full-fledged makeup… and then tossing on athletic shorts and an old t-shirt…hmm…how can I feel comfortable and look amazing at the same time?  Two words.  Summer Slouch.


What is Summer Slouch, you ask?  Well, it is quite simple.  Rather than slipping on Nike shorts and a Joe’s Crab Shack tee, you can toss on a cute and colorful mini skirt paired with a graphic tee and snazzy sneakers for a look that is far more dazzling!  That is what Summer Slouch is all about–quick, easy, comfortable, and super spectacularly stylish.

Whether you are having an all-day girls-day shopping all over the city OR whether you are going for a picnic at the local botanical gardens with that cute guy you met at the beach OR whatever the occasion…the VIP Summer Slouch will keep you feeling comfy and looking too-hot-to-handle.  Now, enough chatting and explaining and thinking about meeting a hot guy at the beach, let’s see what cute combo is going to kick off the VIP Summer Slouch Series. Woo hoo!
