My husband is learning


vest: tjmaxx (similar)   shirt: old navy (similar)  jeans: kohls  boots: discovery (similar)

The other day Chris told me that he watched a segment on a morning show about what fashion trends were in, so that he could tell me what I needed to buy so I could talk about it on my blog.

Let's just pause and say "Awwwww. That is so sweet of him to think of me and my fashion choices."

He told me one of the trends was fur vests, which I already wanted.

Especially after seeing this outfit, I knew I wanted to try to copy it.

However, once I did buy this vest, he is convinced it's because he told me that was trendy.

He also told me that I should try "block coloring" now too.

At least he got the fur vest part right.




Happy Wednesday!




Pin It!

Haha, I love your husband. Mine tries to pretend like he knows all the trends. I'll put on an outfit and he'll say things like "oh, great peplum top"... and I'm like, why do you know that term. :)
