Somehow I convinced my husband to let me dress him. Ha! Not that Kevin doesn’t have great style himself, but I’m just so used to picking out clothes online and writing about them on my blog that I thought it be fun for me to pick out some clothes for Kevin and write about them. Plus I pretty much buy everything from Nordstrom, as you guys know, and they have such great guy clothes at really good prices, so I figured while I was shopping for myself I would get some things for him too. And now was the perfect time because we’re going to a red carpet event tomorrow and I want him to have a nice outfit to wear. It’s a kid’s event so it’s casual, but there will be a red carpet so we want to look somewhat put together. Anyway, I thought it would be fun for you guys to help us pick what outfit he should wear tomorrow! I picked out both of these outfits but I think I’m leaning towards one over the other but I want to know what you guys think first.
I don’t know why, but I always thought guys clothes were super expensive. I know they’re more expensive than a lot of women’s clothes and I think that’s part of the reason I never really looked to buy clothes for Kevin. I usually can’t stomach spending too much on an outfit. But I was pretty pumped to find that Nordstrom has men’s clothes at really great prices! Like this first outfit..
His top is really cool and hip in my opinion (that sounds like such a mom thing to say. Ha! I could see my kids making fun of me for saying something like that one day). But it’s also really affordable! It’s under $60 and I feel like it looks way more expensive! I think the black-and-white make it feel more polished up and the print makes it fun. I think it’s perfect for an event in LA tomorrow.
In both of these looks, I actually used the same Levi’s jeans. And they’re under $80. That’s such a great price and Kevin loves them. He was legit so shocked and surprised when I told him I bought him new jeans and he was super pumped too! Like he couldn’t believe his good luck. Ha! And you guys know me, I love Converse. So I got him a squeaky clean new pair!
Scroll for look two, but I’m going to leave some fun photos from our “fitting” below.
Like I mentioned above, for this look I used the exact same jeans and shoes but we just switched the top. This is a more traditional button down that I thought was a safe bet when I bought it. I like the plaid, it’s great for fall, and I feel like it could be layered with a sweater when it gets cooler. And it’s also affordable and great quality!
What do you guys think? Should he wear the first look to our event tomorrow? Or the second look? I want you guys to weigh in in the comments below!
And I can’t go without telling you guys about my outfit. This jumper is a bit more than I usually spend on clothes, but I think it’s justifiable because it’s a top and pants in one if you think about it. So for an entire outfit it’s worth it at just over $100. And the quality is just really good. I think this is something I could wear out with a cute pair of loafers, or something I can just lounge around the house in. Plus it’s breastfeeding friendly! That’s one of the main reasons I bought it when I was browsing online and now that I have it I’m just obsessed with it. And I threw one of my favorite bandanas in my hair. It’s only $12! You guys may have noticed that I wear bandanas in my hair all the time now. I just love them. I started wearing them to cover my greasy hair since I haven’t been showering as much as I’d like too lately. Ha! That’s mom life for you. But now I wear them because I just think they’re cute. The one I have in my hair in these photos comes in a bunch of other prints too. I own three of the prints.
Ok, don’t leave before giving us your opinion on what outfit Kevin should wear tomorrow! I will do insta stories from the event so you guys can see which one he chose!
