My hubby tends to fancy himself a quite fashionable guy. see below
Let’s just be clear though, I picked out that shirt. 😉 I admit, he has great style and of course, I think he looks pretty darn good when he dresses, even without my suggestions. Typically, he tends to have more of a classic style while I love to mix in colors and patterns, which he thinks is sometimes overkill and a nod to my hippie California upbringing. But, I think I’ve started to make some progress in injecting a little of my flair to his wardrobe. Although I’ve picked a few shirts and sweaters that he’s loved, the real game changer has been his socks! Yep! I got my baby on the fancy sock trend. And I have gone absolutely crazy buying socks every.single.chance.I.get! His sock drawer is spilling over with polka dots, stripes, pastels and bright colors.
I was a little nervous about approaching the topic of sprucing up his sock game because I knew I had to do it ever so gently so he would be receptive. To my surprise, it was not that difficult. When I bought the first few pairs for him, he claimed that he liked them and said he would wear them but I was not sold until I saw them on his feet. Shortly thereafter, I started getting a “pic of the day” of my hubby’s sock and shoe combo (see above). I was so excited and clearly he was too!
I get such a kick when I see he has on his “jazzy socks,” I just love it. My favorites are by Hook & Albert and Paul Smith, but those are way expensive. Etiquette, Cole Haan and Ted Baker have a good selection of patterns and colors, which are more friendly on the pockets. Plus you can always catch some on sale at good ole’ Nordy! We even found a pair of H&A on sale at the store!
I’m even recruiting my Ladybirds to get their husbands on board. Ladybird T has already gotten a few pairs for her hubby and I’m sure Ladybird J will be placing an order once she reads this post!
