What Happens When My Boyfriend Lets Me Dress Him

A few months ago I let my boyfriend, Andrew, dress me in 4 different outfits for my blog post, linked here for your viewing pleasure. This time around, he let me dress him! I was really excited about this because he does often ask my opinion on what to wear so it was nice that he let me have full control this time! I was also really excited to see how he would do in front of the camera this time, since he’s usually behind it taking my photos! I think he did an excellent job and is definitely giving me a run for my money. Keep on reading to see what I dressed him in!

Outfit 1:

One thing I love is when Andrew wears these khaki pants because they fit him so well. So of course, my first outfit was going to include them! We got these at Abercrombie over the summer and were pleasantly surprised by the fit and the quality. We also went and got the black shirt at H&M about a month ago. I liked it because it’s heavier than a regular button down which makes it great for fall and winter. Of course, black boots was the obvious choice here and it really pulls it all together I think.

Outfit 2:

This is one of my favorite looks because I know this is something he would pick out himself. Just like me, he’s a big jeans and t-shirt kind of guy so this one was a no brainer! He got the jeans earlier this year at American Eagle and they are such good quality and they have so many sizes/styles which made it really easy to find ones he liked. Andrew almost exclusively wears t-shirts from Express so that’s where he got this one. They make great t-shirts and they usually have a buy one get one deal for them also! Now, personally I think Andrew looks really good in blue so whenever I get the chance, I tell him to wear this blue bomber jacket and it always pulls the whole look together.

Outfit 3:

I think Andrew actually wore this outfit on our second date, but he hasn’t worn it in a while and it’s one of my favorites for him. He’s got a lumberjack thing going on when he wears plaid! He sort of recently got these black pants because his other ones ripped beyond repair and we were surprised to find them at Old Navy. They are surprisingly good quality and were even on sale! So it looks like we have to head back to Old Navy soon to take a look.

Outfit 4:

This is another outfit that I love because it’s another one he would definitely pick out for himself. The blue pants are the same as the black ones from the previous outfit and the henley is from Abercrombie, another surprising find! These henleys are great because they are a waffle knit which makes them breathable, but still warm now that it’s getting cooler here. I also had him pair these brown boots with this outfit because I thought he had a brown jacket to match them with but he does not, so looks like that’s what we’re getting next!

Finally, a HUGE MASSIVE thank you to our friend Eric Dulmovits for his amazing work shooting these photos. He was such a big help and I am so happy with how these photos came out. He does great work (obviously) and was so quick to get these back to us. I’m thankful to have such a talented friend! If you are in the Long Island area and looking for a photographer, please reach out to him!

I Let My Boyfriend Dress Me: Summer 2019

Hi Everyone! For today’s blog post, I wanted to try something a little bit different. I remember always watching Youtube videos where the girl has her boyfriend pick out her outfits and I thought that might be fun to try on here. So lo and behold, I had my very enthusiastic and sweet boyfriend pick out some outfits for me. He’s been so supportive of my blog from the very beginning, I thought it was only right to give him a little feature! Keep reading to see what he picked out for me!

Andrew: Personally, I was excited to be made a part of the blog and be able to style Karen in my own way. I wanted to go with 4 different styles and create looks I have never seen her wear before. The 4 styles were Casual, Workwear, A Night Out, and Silly. The last one was for my own amusement.

A: For Casual, I wanted to create a summer look that incorporated one of Karen’s many dresses. I also noticed the Colorblock trend that she was utilizing in various posts. I chose the color yellow after finding a floral dress of hers she had never worn before. I made sure to select yellow shoes along with somewhat flashy earrings and a matching headband. I do not think she would use this much of one color in her usual outfits, but it was fun to just see it for myself.

A: The Workwear look was very clean, but I wanted to pick something that I thought she would actually wear to work. Karen’s favorite color is pink, so when I saw the pink button down, I knew I wanted to start there. Keeping with the lighter summer vibe, I selected white pants, pink shoes, and pink earrings. I thought the pink shoes with the buckle added a bit of flair to this simple outfit for work and maybe I will see Karen in it one day.

A: Karen and I occasionally enjoy a night out and I honestly think I nailed this outfit. I selected the off the shoulder yellow top, white shorts and the white platform sandals. I even asked her to put her hair in a bun using a gold scrunchie, so you know I put some thought into this. The gold earrings were also something extra to add to it as a whole. I’m excited to go out with Karen when she is wearing this, but I hope I can look good in comparison.

K: I actually forgot to put on the earrings when I took these photos, but they were just thick small gold hoops. They are the Chrissy earrings from Baublebar!

A: For the Silly themed look, I chose something that I felt Karen would never be caught wearing. She has a colorful style and placing her in various muted tones is just not her style. I chose beige pants and an over-sized burnt orange button down that she has never worn. I made sure it was buttoned all the way to the top and paired with beige flats. I also opted for her to part her hair completely to one side, which I thought added to the unusual look of it all. I would call this look “Bohemian Chic”.

A: Overall, I had a lot of fun with this task and it definitely created a unique date night activity for the both of us. I’m looking forward to the next blog where Karen creates a few outfits for me. Wish me luck!

K: We had such a fun time working on this together and I’m so happy with what he picked out. He tried to keep my style in mind and I think he did a great job! Let me know how you think he did in the comments below, xx!
