First and foremost, I must say thank you for all the incredibly kind words I have received from all of you regarding the new layout and design. The outpouring of support is amazing and it makes writing Juggling in Heels feel so rewarding.
As I was working through the new design and reviewing old posts, I began to notice that I consistently posted on my personal style and at many times, style for the littles, but I completely overlooked someone. How could I have forgotten about my hubby’s style? The man loves his clothes just as much as any woman does and yet the only two posts I had for him where potential Christmas shopping lists completed in 2012 and 2013. FAIL. I love that my hubby takes the time to keep himself looking put together, even when he is relaxing on the weekend after a week of wearing suits. I began to notice that even though he would love to spend time shopping for himself, he really just doesn’t have the time and I tend to be the one who updates his wardrobe. I began to then think that perhaps a number of women shop for their spouse or significant other like I do and just as much as we love finding goodies for ourselves, it is nice to find some goodies for them as well. I love shopping for mens clothes and will be bringing that here, sharing from time to time some of my favorites for them. It only seems fair.
When it comes to my husband’s style, my tastes have changed a bit over the last almost-13 years of marriage. When we were younger, I found nothing sexier than him in a suit. It seemed so grown up and sophisticated right out of college. Put him in a classic black suit, white shirt and fabulous tie and I would swoon. But then the suit changed shape. It was no longer something he wore for a special occasion but more of a uniform that he wore every day, and has worn every day for the last 13 years. Suddenly the allure of the suit began to fade. I found that I stopped taking notice each morning when he put his suit on but began really taking notice on the weekends. Suddenly, I had a thing for worn in jeans and white v-necks. I began loving plaid shorts and vintage sneakers. The laid back, casual look was now my favorite. Don’t get my wrong, I love a nice tux on the man and he still looks great in his suits, I just like the weekend change up. And so, I find myself always shopping for weekend wear, rather than the fancy stuff.
As we begin summer, it is time to refresh his closet with a bit of casual for barbecues, beach visits and lazy days. My favorite.
