I thought it would be interesting to have my husband choose my outfit today since he seems to have an opinion about everything I wear; I though why the heck not let him dress me for the day! I didn’t help him or guide him or tell him anything about what I like and what I don’t like. I gave him full liberty to go through my closet and choose the whole outfit; from head to toe! He didn’t seem to mind, in fact, I think he pretty much enjoyed it. I love seeing him so interested in fashion; save me the job to teach him it. He, himself, has an excellent wardrobe selection when it comes to work wear; he dressed in smart and tailored suits all week and he looks damn good (the perks of marrying a lawyer)! He suffers however from a rut on the weekend and dressed kindda meh, if you know what I mean. He doesn’t even invest in weekend wear, which sucks, but I don’t fuss much as I like to leave him to his own comfort (sweats from head toe for him all weekend). Therefore, I thought it would be really cool to see what my husband would see me in today and this is what he came up with:
I was actually quite impressed with the fact that he mixed and matched pieces from my wardrobe so confidently and so efficiently. He told me that these tartan pants were the main focus of this look because he loves them so much on me and he finds that I don’t wear them much and it would be a perfect opportunity to wear them today. He automatically wanted to lighten up the pants by paring it with a white shirt…but since the outfit was boring he did not hesitate to add this Monsoon statement jacket overtop even though the pants are patterned. He maintained the gold theme going in the outfit by also accessorising with a gold veil, clutch and necklace. He kept insisting that the white shirt showing through the middle is too much of a blank canvas and that we needed to tone the color down with a necklace and so I showed him what I have and this is what he chose. He’s so freaking edible!
What I loved most is how he went missing in search of the perfect shoe to go with this outfit and then came back with a big sparkling smile…that smile that says success.
WHAT I WORE:
JACKET: Monsoon ◊ BLOUSE: Topshop ◊ PANTS: WDG (gift from a while ago) ◊ SHOES: Expression ◊ NECKLACE: Gold (from a local shop in Palestine) ◊ BAG: Aldo ◊ SUNNIES: Forever 21
He said and I quote: “I know how to give an unloved piece some attention and make it special again”. He’s so adorbs with his savant attitude about fashion. I love that he was not afraid to mix and match patterns and texture and I can appreciate the outcome of this outfit very much. I would even say that he styled these pants much better than I did! I never want to wear these pants because I guess I always get a little blocked on styling ideas to go with the purple color in the print. It’s interesting that he combined both feminine and masculine pieces to make this outfit work for me. It gave me pirate vibes all over and I love how he told me to make my white shirt pop through the sleeves; his attention to detail is staggering. I knew I married his for a reason! Haha!
***On a total random side note…scenery isn’t the biggest oomph in Palestine and so, I decided from now on, not to keep looking for the perfect spot to do my photographs, but rather to embrace what Palestine truly is at the moment and what you see is what you get. Besides, the contrast between the not so beautiful scenery with the eloquent fashion make a great statement. ***
Side note aside, this was a super successful experiment and I cannot wait to try it again! Perhaps with evening attire??? What do you guys think?
