First Snow

Cody and I both hate the cold, so we welcomed the abnormally warm December weather with open (and sometimes even short-sleeved) arms. But with Christmas right around the corner, we found ourselves wishing for …. READ MORE

Have you ever heard it said that women don’t dress to impress guys – they dress for themselves or other women?  I used to laugh it off but I think there might be some truth to that. Recently Target challenged us to have our significant other create a head to toe look with their favorite pieces. I asked Cody for his style input and apparently my wardrobe would look a little different if he had it his way.

Q: Heels or Sneakers?

A: Sneakers. Next?

Q: If you could rid my closet of one trend, what would it be?

A: Leopard print – it reminds me of an old lady that tries too hard. And boyfriend jeans – they don’t look like they fit. (Sorry Cody! Those aren’t going anywhere)

Q: If you were my stylist, what would my closet be full of?

A: Tees, jeans, sneakers, and work out clothes. I like when you wear Nike’s with regular clothes.

Q: What colors do you like or dislike?

A: I like blacks, grey, whites, some neons. No to pale pink. (Crap blush pink is one of my favorite colors to wear!)

Q: Glam or grunge?

A: I can appreciate a nice dress and high heels. But for the most part, I like you in comfortable clothes. Oh, and no makeup – is that grunge? But really you always look pretty.

(He has to say that :P – we’re married. But really, if that’s not love I don’t know what is!)

I’ll never be able to give up heels or leopard, and let’s be honest I still am going to dress how I want :) but now I feel completely justified dressed-down and bare-faced. If it’s this easy, I might even indulge him by dressing to impress him a little more often.

What pieces does your significant other love the most? What would you look like if they created a head-to-toe look for you? It’s fun having their honest opinion – you should ask!

XOX,
Christine

MY OUTFIT DETAILS:
Red & White Striped Pajamas (size small – also loving these)|| Glasses || Grey Patterned Socks (also love this colorblocked style)

Kids: Mara’s Elf Jammies (on sale!) || Wes’s Santa Christmas Jammies (on sale!) || B’s Reindeer Jammies

Misc: Elf on the Shelf Book || The Night Before Christmas Book || Giant White Bear || Stuffed Unicorn || Santa Blanket || Elf on the Shelf Game

I have to say the holidays have gotten so much more fun with kids. They bring a different feeling to the season and creating traditions. Every year we pick out a new Christmas book to read while we are all breaking in our Christmas jammies. Even as an adult I am still stoked for Christmas pj’s! This year Mara and Wes are obsessed with Elf on a Shelf, so I was excited to find some elf pajamas I could pretend came from their elf. Pottery Barn Kids (they have the cutest Christmas stuff!) had the option to get their name monogrammed on it which was so perfect so I could tell them their elf made them at Santa’s workshop just for them. Thankfully I still have a couple years before they can read this and realize what’s going on :)

We also got them this adorable bed set, but probably my favorite buy was this giant white bear. I guess I should more so introduce him as the newest member of the family since he is twice the size of B. He has became an instant favorite. I am sure Charlie (the bear) will be taking part in our Christmas jammies reading tradition for years to come.

XOX,
Christine
