Would you believe when it comes to all my outfits with the bodycon, sheer, high heels assisted by all the makeup and hair product, primping and preening that THIS is my Hubby’s current favourite outfit on me. This! Seriously. It’s a hoodie with shorts and sneakers. Virtually no makeup and a ponytail. Seriously, men confuse me. Not that I blame him, the hoodie is snuggly and the shorts are short’ish but I would’ve picked something a little hotter myself. Haha.

It’s funny how often as women we are told to do this and do that to attract a man, keep a man and all that. Then it turns out that it’s all bull. Sure care about your appearance and take care of yourself but not for anyone else’s sake. Do it because it’s fun, you’re worth taking time over and you want to. Because the right guy, well he’d rather you in a hoodie anyway. Apparently.

This lazy Sunday, rainy afternoon we were out driving around looking for something to do. Hubby doesn’t do so well when it comes to the whole being cooped up in the house thing. I snapped pictures, he drove, we drank coffee and chatted about possible photo locations. We pulled over at this car park, noting the pink and yellow flowers from previous weeks were long gone.

I should take a photo of you in this, said Hubby. I scrunched up my face and told him that it wasn’t really what people want to see. Remember the flip-flops thing, I said? People don’t like casual. Who cares, I love this one, it’s my favourite he said. And how could I argue with that. Because long after this blog dies a natural death {or is handed over to my mini geek niece} he’ll still be there. The right guys, they always are.

  • I LOLed at it being his favorite outfit. Isn’t it always the way. My OH is the same. He thinks I look better makeup free and dressed casually too. Go figure.

  • Martina Hart

    He is so cute. He loves you natural. What a man

  • Bronnie

    I agree with your lovely husband – I think you look so relaxed and happy in this outfit. I have recently started reading your blog and just love it, so many inspiring outfits. Thank you for sharing.

    • Thank you Bronnie. And thanks for saying that. Glad you’re enjoying it around here. See you around!

  • My boyfriend is just like this!! He likes me in boring all “mum jeans” and a plain jacket.

  • Emily Turner

    I agree with him too! You look gorgeous in this…The colours really suit you and I have a tremendous urge to hug that hoodie (in a completely non virtual-stalker way, promise!)

    • Thank you Emily. Haha. And hugs are always welcome. I’m the most inappropriate hugger. 😀

  • Sarah Collins

    Haha mine is the same, loves me in trackies and a t-shirt laying about at home

    • Men, who knew they were so easy to please. Once again, we were lied to! 😉

  • Malene

    Haha. My boyfriend is like that too! Well, he loves me when I dress up as well, but he compliments me even on my most casual days. Like… even when I’m just in my PJ’s.

    • Oh absolutely. Hubby loves the heels and makeup and fuss as well. But it’s funny the things he really loves. Sounds like your dude is the same.

  • Emma Hinchliff

    U 2 are so funny and I want those shoes!! I want ALL your shoes!!!

    • Thanks babe. I got these from the DFO! The best part about having big feet is they’re always on the clearance rack there! Winning.

  • flashionaffair

    Your legs look amazing! When it comes down to it guys don’t really care what we wear , my boyfriend keeps telling I always dress up when we leave the house when there is no need and he prefers me with no make up. Its nice to know aye! and your right the right guys will definitely be there at the end 🙂

    • Thanks lovely. Lots of kilometres in these legs at the moment. And you’re so right, they really don’t and it’s so nice to know. The right guy will absolutely be there.

  • Very rare color for a hoodie but you looking good in that.
