I love styling my husband almost as much as I love dressing myself. In general I find dresses others easier, as visually it’s so much more clear. That is why with this blog and my newfound determination, I hope to style more in the future.
Back to this denim edit. A typical date night at our house begins with me deciding what I am going to wear, followed quickly by my husband shouting down the hall (his closet is in the guest room, obviously I use the whole closet in the master!) asking what he is wearing. He doesn’t even kind of try, which I actually adore. The dork in me definitely tends to coordinate our ensembles, as you can see in this post.
Let’s start with my look. I am soo loving the bodysuit trend! I know, it’s a tough one to go for, but if you are bold enough, I highly suggest taking the plunge. This one is only $50 from Tiger Mist. I am also 100% (as I previously mentioned in my jean short post) into the high waistedness that is everywhere. I know it can totally be a “mom jean” look, but I think it’s seriously so much more flattering than the super low waisted (aka let your gut and butt crack hang out) look. These, by Citizens of Humanity, caught my eye because they are skinny skinny and distressed to perfection.
I went with a Proenza Schouler white clutch to match my husbands super white Adidas shoes. And then with my black essential Manolo Blahnik pumps. Had these lovers for years and can honestly say they are comfy times ten.
So this is my husband, Colby. We met on the first (literally!) day of college at University of San Diego (thanks to my adorable roommate who was his high school prom date! Hi, Gretchen!). We were friends for awhile, which I honestly think is the key to any good relationship as you get to know each other. By the end of our freshman year we gave in and were a thing and the rest is history. He is my everything. He mellows out my overthinking and keeps my sassiness in line!
For his look, I went with the open sweater look, which I adore. This one is by Rag & Bone and is fab because it’s pretty fitted (I can’t stand when open sweaters are oversized and baggy). Underneath I went with a simple white V neck (by RVCA). Right now I am loving the super skinny jeans that are so trend for guys. I know it can a tough look to pull off for some, but a more fitted jean in general is always more flattering (than baggy Dad jeans…no and no). These are by AG and I love that they are such a fab grey tone. For shoes, it’s all about these Adidas Superstars. The brightest white and just so crisp. Love love.
So now you guys know my husband! (The picture above pretty much sums up my feelings) He is seriously the the nicest guy who always just wants to have fun. You will see more of him for sure!
