A couple weeks ago I told y'all how my husband thought that I looked like a diva in an outfit I wore to work. This time, I walk over to his work to have lunch with him, and he says, "nice disco pants!" ....Sarcastically. Let's just say that he is not a fan of my wide leg pants. He couldn't stop laughing! And no, it doesn't bother me whatsoever! My husband has zero sense of fashion. If he's wearing something nice, I dressed him, and I bought it. Anyone else dress their husband? He'd dress even better if he let me dress him the way I really want to dress him. Unfortunately, he's plain Jane Jack. He only really likes to wear the colors black, red, white, and gray. One time I bought him this pretty blue Express short sleeve button up from the Goodwill (yes, I buy thrifted clothes for him too!), and he puts it on and is all like, "....well, the color is too much.." OHHH OK. Crazy husband. He never did wear that shirt, and it still hangs in our closet as I continue to hope he'll wear it one day.

  3. I like your pants better than my pants because the legs are even wider, and I love the dark wash. Again, your hair is looking amazing. I say the same thing about Jeff. Anything that looks nice on him is something my mom or I bought for him. He wears the most obnoxious sneakers, but I think I finally and sneakily threw away all of his "You've got a pretty mouth" and "Pull my finger" and "Italian Stallion" shirts. The other day, he actually wore NICE shoes to a party (of his own choosing). I'm still in shock.

  4. This is an adorable outfit and those pants are amazing! My fiance is very well dressed, so I don't have to worry about dressing him. In fact, it's nice because he picks out great clothes for me as gifts!

  5. I hear you about the colors thing! My fiancé will only wear blue, green or gray... I don't know what it is!! Everything I show him when we go shopping that isn't one of those colors doesn't even have a chance...

  6. Uh yes...my husband critiques my clothing choices but himself wears a ohio state buckeye tshirt 365 days a year! :)

  7. This is super cute! My husband has learned not to poke fun at what I wear because... unfortunately I'm one of those who care about what her husband's fashion critiques say, even though he has zero fashion sense. I mostly care because he's my husband, not because he has a clue of what he's talking about. Hahaha! But I totally love this outfit. And the diva outfit too. :)

  9. Those pants make you look so tall Danielle! Do you have to wear super high heels with them? That blouse is super pretty. It'd look really good with a colored blazer or cardigan too I'm sure!

    Luckily my boyfriend is a pretty nice dresser. He wears only solid things in either grey, blue, black, white, tan, or brown. He did venture out and buy a North Face zip up hoodie once I convinced him how good he'd look in it. I'm pretty lucky in that regard :)

  10. You look so tall! I love these pants, silly Larry! My boyfriend is a total fashionisto so I have no idea what you're talking about haha although sometimes I think he's too fashion forward for his own good. Metrosexual isn't bad until guys start hitting on him while we're together! Hello, this is MY boyfriend, not my gay friend. Back off lol

  11. Those pants are super cute on you! And I totally dress my husband too. Well he picks his clothes out every day, but I pretty much buy him everything, so I think that counts as dressing him :)

  12. My husband likes black and navy. And yes I have to dress him, if he's wearing anything other than a tshirt and jeans. lol. Every time I ask him what he thinks of what I'm wearing, he's like ask someone else I have no idea.

  13. I just want these pants so bad it's not even funny! Husband is aware he doesn't really know how to put stuff together so anytime we're going anywhere he stands in front of his closet and is like "Kaitie!! Tell me what shirt I'm supposed to wear if I'm wearing these shoes!"

  14. It must be nice to just throw on and go like men! Mine ruins his clothes by working in them (he's does everything construction) and then complains when he has nothing nice to wear! LOL. Love the wide legs!

  15. I hear ya. My husband won't even wash his clothes unless I go through his closet for him. It's sad, really....

  16. I couldn't find a contact you form but I saw you were having the same problem with adding pages so that each page shows all your posts with the same label url. I was having the same problem (no arrow to select web address option) and I found a link that showed me how to do it

    You have a lovely blog :-)

  17. My husband is very plain too. He doesn't dress bad but he could dress better. If you see a nice or rather more colorful outfit on him, most likely I bought it. It's funny you mentioned Express because that's my favorite store I shop for my husband.

    Your outfit looks lovely.

  18. I LOVE THIS. You look so classy! What do men know, right?! My husband dresses pretty nicely during the week to work, but on weekends, he's in baggy jeans and either a nerdy graphic tee with a zip up hoodie over it, or in a flannel button up. Sigh.

  19. I love your wide leg pants they are so cute! It's good you have a thick skin when it comes to your husbands opinions, I can't take it and usually change if my husband makes a comment about my clothes : / I buy him thrifted shirts too and he is a plain Jack too. It's hit and miss for sure!
