I have never, ever looked good in a twin set. Believe me when I first got married my husband tried in vain to go get me to dress-up in a style he thought was best suited for me. And being that when I met him I was 22 and dare I say it a wee bit impressionable, I acquiesced and took him shopping with me. Suffice it to say it was a NIGHTMARE. We spent the bulk of our time screaming at each other behind the closed doors of our dressing room- and although he convinced me to take home a few buttoned down preppy shirts and attempted to clone me in the image of an L.L. bean cover girl- I just could not go along with his vision for me. To this day he says I never took to the “Classy Look”. And while I can admit that I definitely experimented with a few BAD style choices as a 22 year old-year, now that I’m 44 and completely comfortable in my skin I have carved out a style that is my own which my husband says is devoid of any sleaze factor.
This is not to say that I don’t opt for conservative pieces and muted colors, I do, but I also really enjoy adding different colors and textures and if truth be told I like everything I wear to be TIGHT. I am a TINY girl. I am four feet 11 inches tall with a double D chest size. I I wear any blouses without a waist I get LOST in the garment. While my husband would prefer I wear more loose-fitting garments, after 18 years he has decided this is ONE ARGUMENT HE WILL NOT WIN.
I also love to experiment with feminine and sporty pieces and to have fun and wear these red and pink cowboy boots I got in Ohio for $25. So I thought it would be fun to scour Pinterest for some eclectic outfits and share a few of my favorites with you!
I live for dressing up a Graphic Tee and pairing it with my jean jacket. Love this look from Penny Pincher Fashion
And Camo Pants are one of my essential GO tos! I love this look from xoxo Cleverly Yours: baseball tee & camo pants
And of course I can’t EVER have enough BLING and sparkle in my life- ! Love this Gold Jacket from theglitterguide.tumblr.com
And while my style may not RESONATE with that of my husband’s idea of what my style should be- 18 years of mostly wedded bliss later we are making it work and learning to live with ( and LOVE) each other’s individuality.
But the real question is: How ( if at all) has your style changed from when you first met your spouse to the present?
