let's talk slouchy tees.



Hey guys!
Today we are talking about being lazy but looking good. Like a homeless person who doesn't give a crap.


I've been on the hunt for the perfect slouchy t-shirt. Apparently I identify as "plus" size now because my boobs explode through every t-shirt. TMI? K, whatever. But people don't make a nice slouchy hipster tee for plus sized ladies. They make weird scoop neck stretchy shirts. So I have been on the hunt and I have found three tips that are useful when shopping:

1. Do not buy cotton.
Cotton doesn't "slouch" as well as jersey does. If you buy 100% cotton, it won't hang as slouchy as you are envisioning. When shirt shopping, make sure your shirt has some element of jersey in it. 

2. Buy two sizes bigger than you need
This is pretty obvious. For the slouch, you need to have extra fabric. Buying bigger sizes will give you the extra fabric you need for your shirt to slouch.


3. MENS SECTION
The gray shirt I am wearing is from the mens section at H&M. You guys, it's glorious because not only is it slouchy but it covers my bum because men's torsos are longer.



IN OTHER NEWS:


 Today was the last day as a Ticket Manager for Caine College of the Arts. What a great job it was. I will miss it terribly. I won't miss making minimum wage for a ton of responsibilities.

Logan is one of the most BORING cities in the United States. Statistically proven by me. So to beat the stir crazyness, Mark and I go to Hastings and bum around and never buy anything. It usually ends up with me flipping through a wedding magazine on a chair somewhere waiting for Mark to find something he wants to show me. So here is me, doing that.

 I was hiding from the Bishop in the bathroom at church. I KNOW. I am going to Hell. But I was supposed to have tithing settlement a few weeks ago and forgot annnnnnnnd I am a bad person in general. 

 I am dying over Hallie and Brookyln's friendship. They are six months apart and they LOVE each other. Now that Hallie is talking they have little conversations and it makes my heart BURST. They are facetiming me and I am missing them so much I could just die.



Nikki and I had a big/little date this week and we went to an antique shop in Logan that I have driven past many times in my time here and never been inside. REGRET! SO MUCH REGRET! There was this insanely cool desk that I think about every day. If only it was not $175.00. Haha! But I bought this old window and made a picture holder with it. Well, Nikki mostly did it because I am the worst Sorority girl in the world and can't craft worth crap. 



Annnnnd last but not least, this weekend Mark and I helped Codi with a photography project for one of her classes. I can't wait to see the pictures, Mark looked like a hot rap star in his pictures! I was loving it. I looked like a Lesbian Lorde. I should have made a fake SNL skit. It would have been a hit.

Have a good week everyone!
