. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Husband's Disapproval

September 11, 2012

Husband's Disapproval



vest: Old Navy (similar)  dress: Old Navy (old) (similar) belt: Target  shoes: dsw

I put this vest on the other day and Chris' first response was "What is that?"

(cue disgusted tone)

"Ummm, a vest."

"You look like you're ready to lead a safari trip." 

I then proceeded to tell him that it was a military vest and was actually very trendy right now.
He didn't believe me.

So I told him I'd be able to look up military vest on pinterest and find hundreds of pictures of stylish ladies wearing a similar vest.

I then decided that probably wasn't worth it. 

I've actually had this vest for a long time and got it on clearance last year at Old Navy. 
I've yet to wear it in warmer weather but have seen so many cute outfits with it I am finally trying it. 

And despite Chris' disapproval I will continue to wear it.  


Happy Wednesday!

Haha rule one of marriage: you know best when it comes to style! You look adorable :)

J would have said the same!!! You look great. As always!!

I think it's so funny that there are "guy outfits" and "girl outfits" - guys often find girl outfits ugly and don't understand why they're stylish while our gal pals gush about how cute they are! There are a number of things I wear that cause the same reaction from my hubby - he doesn't get things like an accent nail or pattern mixing!

Faith said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Yup! I do the same! There is stuff he wears that I have no say about so he can't say anything about my outfits although he tries. But he just wants me to look like I'm going out to the club every night. No thank you, lol.

Carly said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

HAHAAAAAAAAA! I think it's adorable! Hope you had a good day at school!

Haha!! Sounds like something my husband would say! Thus another similarity!! :)

Kell said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Um.. my boyfriend disapproves of about 50% of my wardrobe. Guys just don't know style ;)

that I read today. I have some things Wade doesn't love, but I just wear them when he's not around lol

Amanda Raborn said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

HAHAHA Love this! Sounds like something that would go on at our house. Regardless, the vest is fantastic!

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Guys are clueless! Sounds exactly like something my husband would say. Right now he's stuck on the fact that he can't believe colored jeans are in and nothing I say convinces him.

Christi Lynn said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

you look so adorable! I love the outfit!

Jo @ To a Pretty Life said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I am not a fan of vests (for me, I'm too busty). But I do have to say that outfit looks terrific on you! I like the military style with the cute polka dots, and the colours go together perfectly. Have you ever posted about that dress before? I'd like to see the rest of it. I love polka dot dresses!

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Yes, I've gotten the occasional weird look from the husband. But I will never forget the day Scott tried to wear a plaid shirt with pinstripe pants. I was HORRIFIED.
I love that dress!

Kaitlyn said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

It looks adorable with that outfit!

Head to Toe Chic said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Don't listen to him, I love this vest on you! It's perfect with your green dress.

Megan said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I have that same vest and my husband hates it! There are certain things men just do not like...

I'm glad you wear it anyway! It looks adorable on you :)

TheTinyHeart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha, what do men know about fashion, right? I want a cargo vest so badly but Old Navy is sold out of them :(

Jessica said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You rock the vest Katie! I get that question or even a look from my husband frequently. I just smile at him and take solace in the fact that he is not a fashionista and I don't have to be put off by him :-)

Niki Caron said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

This made me laugh because my husband is the same way! You look great and I love the vest! It could go safari, but (a) that's the point - it's in style and (b) you wore it in a way that it screams "cool" rather than "riding around looking for wild animals". :)

Erin Rethemeyer said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

My husband JUST did this to me!!!
What is it with men sometimes??? I love your military vest!!

Gotta love what dudes think about our clothing choices.

I think you look adorable!

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You go girl! Rock the vest!

twenty-somethingblog.com said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I tried to tell my boyfriend I really like the leather trend for fall and want to get something leather - he just stared at me. I also tried to show him cheetah print smoking slippers and he told me I'd look like a grandma in them. You can't trust everything men say - besides we're the fashionistas right?! Love this outfit, the vest looks so cute with the dress!

Montana said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Janna Renee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I wear stuff that Will doesn't like too. I dress for him majority of the time, but if I like something that he doesn't I'll still rock it ;)

Ashleigh Nicole said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Whitney Cramer said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Found your cute little blog from over at Chelsea's page (Yours Truly) and excited to know that my husband isn't the only one that questions what I wear sometimes. hahaha. Sometimes the very one that says "you can pull of anything with confidence" questions my most confident outfits. bahaha. newest follower and looking forward to more posts from ya!

Lauren said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

This outfit is adorable! My husband occasionally likes to comment on my outfit choices as well, but I laugh it off and tell him, "well you don't have to wear it!" ;)

Lisa @ Organized Chaos said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I, for one, LOVE the vest!! Who cares if it looks like your are going on a safari! Best to look hot doing it, than not! lol~

Abby said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You look super cute...don't listen to Chris! Matt disapproves of many "trendy" items, including my faux fur vest that I love. :-D Those boys just don't get it!
Love you!!!

The Vintage Modern Wife said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Oh, husbands! I think mine would tell me the same thing. Don't listen to him though- keep rockin' it!

threadsandbuttons said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I TOTALLY wear clothes that my husband disapproves of! It happens pretty often actually lol. I LOVE this vest, and you can tell your husband I said so ;)

Rolled Up Pretty said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

LOVING that safari look. SO CUTE!
