30 for 30 Day 20: Sometimes Boys Know Best

6 Dec

Sweater: Banana Republic

Sweater: J. Crew

Jeans: Gap

Shoes Franco Sarto

Scarf: Vintage

This outfit was pretty much picked by my boyfriend Jon. Saturday, in my mid-fashion meltdown, Jon intervened and suggested I throw on a pair of jeans, these two sweaters and a scarf since it was Christmas-time and I should be festive. I dismissed his outfit idea because I was hot and bothered, but came back to it yesterday, and well, I kind of love it. So kudos, honey, you’ve got fashion in your blood.

I say that jokingly, but in reality, Jon is a great resource for fashion advice/opinion (in a totally manly way). Because he has an art background, he’s studied color theory and figure drawing so he knows what colors work together and how to make them look good.

When we go shopping together, he’s able to predict when something won’t work for me. And  nine times out of ten he’s right. I’m begining to think he knows more about my body type than I do!

Does your significant other help you get dressed?

    ha ha I think I’m a bit of a butt face when it comes to my man picking out my clothes. I’ll put something on and he’ll be like, “hey I think that’d look better if…” and I always just say “Nah I like it”. He knows I have a really specific style and we’re both coping with that fact! Love how you wore the scarf with your outfit!

    Yes, my man helps me (whether he wants to or not!). He has a good eye for clean looks. You man does too, it seems. Did he even pick out the shoes? Because those are great with the rest of the look!
