My husband and I differ greatly in our style aesthetics. I do believe that nothing would make him happier than if I wore solid slim-fitting tees and a matching flowy skirt or jeans every single day. He has great taste, and he’s really sweet about it, but it’s a little…constricting for me—Miss How-much-color-and-pattern-can-I-combine-in-one-outfit-before-your-eyes-bleed.

So I’m determined to get better about putting together looks that we both like.

And I really thought I’d scored with this one.

Fitted: check.

Muted colors: check (okay, not the belt…or the purse, but I just couldn’t help myself)

The cute little vintage grape-cluster necklace I know he likes: check.

But when I went to the door of his office all proud of myself and struck a “tada” pose, and he just smiled at me kindly but vaguely, I knew I’d failed miserably.


Good thing I like a challenge.

How about you? What do the people closest to you think of your style?

P.S. If you usually view my outfits via Five days…5 ways, you can still find me there too! And if you don’t, stop on by and say, “hi!”
