09 Mar My husband dressed me: take 2!
We went for dinner and I was totally uninspired today and so I asked my husband, for the second time, to dig into my closet and to dress me for the day, because I was a lazy hot mess. He enjoys doing so because he’s so opinionated when it comes to fashion…especially when he sees me wear questionable items. He’s always got something to say..good or bad, there’s always something.
Since the weather is starting to become milder and less windy here in Jericho, I can go about without a coat or jacket, so instead, my hubs opted out for a cardigan. I was so into them when I was in college and wore them much that now, I just can’t even look at them. I have 2 in my closet, just in case, but I never reach for them, because I feel like they make me look older for some reason. Hubs like them on me, so he pushed me to wear it over my shirt.
Mr. opted for a very fancy and smart outfit, his main focus for this one are the pants. Much so like last time, his love for pants on me is kindda interesting. He, for some reason, loves these white textured pants I have from Forever 21. I guess he appreciated the detailing.
I have had them for a good 4 years now and they’re still going strong. Since going to fashion school and working in the industry, I no longer spend so much money of trendy pieces because I know they come and go and the effects of fast fashion are quite painful. I now shop smarter and buy things that I know will last me a long time, just like these pants. White trousers are always a thing and besides, you can make any piece a thing if you want to…it all depends on you.
WHAT I WORE
SHIRT: Splash ♠ CARDIGAN: Cleo ♠ PANTS: Forever 21 ♠ SHOES: Badgley Mischka ♠ BAG: Aldo ♠ SUNGLASSES: Rayban aviators
Since I was wearing a pretty colorful, printed veil, I went for my wedding burgundy heels. So happy I am getting wear out of them because they were damn expensive and I am so glad I still have them. Some
asshole stole my wedding dress and I still haven’t recovered from it. I am so incredibly upset and sad and every time I think about it, I cry. So, all that to say, I am very glad I still have my wedding heels and I will wear them to death. I also have been obsessing with my embroidered Aldo bag since my sister gifted it to me last summer. I cannot seem to use anything else and it has been my go-to purse to a lot of events and outings. If I had to choose one item that fully represents me in my entire wardrobe, it would be this bag. It’s black yet colorful, detailed, textured, sleek and super stylish.
As for my makeup, I went very minimal and my hubs loves it that way anyway. We both think I look cross-eyed when I have a heavy smoky eye. Haha! Besides, one of the good things about pregnancy is that it’s been kind to my skin and I haven’t broken out too too much (expect for when I vomit a lot). It’s a little on the dry side, but it’s still fresh and glowy.
What do you guys think? I am very proud that for the second time around, my husband knocked my outfit out of the park, wouldn’t have changed a thing. Is this outfit a yay or a nay?!
