Ya see... I don't know many men who would rock a Ralph Lauren Polo shirt and J. Crew (or maybe they're Abercrombie) cargo shorts to take a girl hiking. But don't worry... on our first whirlwind date to the mountains, that's exactly what he did. And I'm pretty sure he wore something similar last time we went hiking too!
Now, don't go getting distracted by my sexy self in this photo (check out those shoes!) because this photo is total evidence that I married a frat boy. This was at Katie's wedding a few years back and he's definitely rocking the southern frat uniform here. Maybe all those years at a preppy college are the reasoning behind why he's a name brand whore and has since insisted on me becoming one as well.
This man's winter staple is a Banana Republic oxford topped with a sweater. A name brand one. Like this Tommy Hilfiger one he was sporting on our trip to Highlands, NC. He has others too. Fancy schmancy cashmere ones. Take a second to bow at his fashion greatness! I've had a few other guys over the years tell me that they wish they could dress this way. I take that as a giant compliment. Not that I can take any credit for his wardrobe other than insisting he be ironed. (For as much as he worries about his clothes, he sure doesn't know how to use an iron!)
What does Puff wear the rest of the year when he's not in a sweater? Well, pretty much the same thing, minus a sweater. LOL. For a man who could wear jeans and a t-shirt and a hoodie to work every day, he chooses to look like this most times. I swear... it kinda sometimes irks me. I'd kill to be able to be casual all the time! But then again... my hubby does prefer to lounge around the house in khakis versus pajamas. I'm pretty sure his mother dropped him on his head as a baby.
While I totally love that my husband is a fashion icon (he he he) I most prefer him like this. Laid back and casual. It doesn't happen too often, but days like these are the days that I feel like we look most compatible and alike. I'm a jeans, t-shirt, and flip flops girl at heart. Sure, I'll rock a cute dress and buy out Ann Taylor Loft on occasion, but that's just not the REAL me. And while this look may not be the REAL Puff, I'll take it from time to time.
I may even kinda sometimes like when he wears his old ratty lightly colored jeans with holes in the knees. Don't worry... they're from Banana Republic. I would expect nothing less.
Happy birthday, baby! I love you with all my heart and soul! Even if you are super old.
