Wife and Husband Style and a off shirt teaser + link up

January 12, 2016


This post has me so giddy as its a miracle that my hubby has stepped out from behind the lenses and actually WANTED to model for my blog readers. We both actually wore plaid this particular photo shooting day and decided that we would show you how we wore ours.

My plaid button up actually came recently from a site called Schoolaย where with your purchases you are benefiting other children and schools. They even send you a bag with your purchased item to donate gently or new clothing and 40% of the sales from these items they sale for you will help a school of your choice raise money. What a neat idea! You don’t even have to make a purchase, just go here and request a postage paid bag to send your items off to them. ย This top is second hand and sadly a bit smaller than I hoped for my size, but it does make for the perfect layering top, and that is just what I did. Add some red lipstick and the look is complete.

Right now Schoola is offering a deal where you can get a $20 credit and I can get a $20 credit after your purchase, using this link, when you sign up for the first time.Have fun shopping!

Now on to Chantry’s (aka hubby):

My husband got this handsome plaid button up thrifted and sported his with jeans he received from Christmas. The whole look screams mountain man and I just love how rugged it looks.

My husband has become more confident with his body and even regained the muscles and body back that he had pre-kids all thanks to his new job, which requires a lot of lifting and non-stop movement. Heck he can eat anything now and still look good (half-way jealous here). In lieu of his new confidence you will see him below with a teaser-his idea.

I joke with him about needing his own blog to sport clothes and his looks, but until then I hope we can collaborate as a couple again soon.

Has your husband or significant other ever done an outfit shoot with you before?

    Fun post I love the idea of the second chance clothing. The plaid is such fabulous trend, and layering is great for winter. Your husband looks like he is having fun bearing it on the internet. Good for him! Body Confidence is great! Have a wonderful week and thanks for hosting the link up!

  • Happiness at Mid Life January 12, 2016 at 1:19 am

    Love the pink plaid top! My hubby makes occasional appearance on the blog but only for family photos and not for fashion related post. His style is pretty much tee shirt and shorts.

    Thank you for hosting and hope you are having a fab week!


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  • Kathrine Eldridge January 12, 2016 at 6:48 am

    Love both of our casual looks! Your husband is very brave and looks great. My husband has only been on the blog once and that was because my photographer shot our wedding looks a year later. That’s probably the only time he will do it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ada January 12, 2016 at 6:54 pm

    Hahaha you two are so sassy in this. I love plaid shirts and I have rubbed it off on my husband too. He was so so about plaid before but in the last few years he has worn more plaid shirts. Yes, you have seen my husband on my blog before but just when we have taken couple or family photos. In general he hates pictures so I have a hard time even having us family pics.

  • Lisa January 14, 2016 at 3:16 pm

    Great post looks like you both had a great time XO!!
