A Western Touch

Tunic c/o The Mint Julep | Hat: Forever 21 | Heels: Charlotte Russe (Similar) | Belt: Target

One of the most functional pieces of clothing you can have in your wardrobe are the kind that can be worn from one occasion to another. Now every single fashion magazine ever has probably already shown you pieces that transition well from day to night and while those are definitely great items to have, there's another transitional style that I'd like to bring your attention to. It is the loungewear trend, or as I like to call it, bed to brunch. Because who wouldn't love a look that you can roll out of bed in and still be looking fabulous over toast, coffee and eggs? 

I'm absolutely loving this new social acceptance of rocking bedroom attire out and about. First it was with slip dresses (which you guys know I'm also all for), and now with cozy lounge pieces that can easily double as pajamas. Ranging from Express's One-Eleven line to PacSun's Me To We collection, loungewear seems to be everywhere and I for one have become quite the collector. I recently got my hands on this ultra cozy tunic from The Mint Julep and "obsessed" would be an understatement. This piece is seriously one of the coziest pieces I own and it's also in the cutest, most versatile taupe color. This shade is perfect for fall, and it also conveniently fits right in with my neutral toned wardrobe. And as I do with all my other oversized tops, I decided to rock it as a dress. ;) LA has finally started to cool down a bit, but I actually did this shoot back when it was still in the high 70s/80s. Thus, not many layers were needed at the time. On a chillier day, however, I would recommend throwing in a cozy pair of sweater tights and some cute ankle boots.

I ended up styling this tunic in two ways: one as an everyday look for when you want to be more dressed up and the other being a more cozy, ~sip tea and Netflix binge~ kinda look. The latter will be a separate post that will go live in about two days. As I mentioned, it's an incredibly versatile piece and The Mint Julep even offers them in a wide variety of colors! You can check out the full collection here.

Stay tuned for my next cozy look!
