on our weekly date night this week, troy told me he met one of his co-workers’ girlfriends the other day. i asked what she was like and he replied, “she was nice, pretty and had on a pinterest outfit.”
i laughed and asked what she was wearing.
“she had on jeans and a blouse. the blouse was red and kind of like yours but not so seventy-year-old-ish. she had a gold and blue necklace on. no bracelets.”
the poor guy- what being the husband of a pinterest loving style blogger has done to him.
i was curious though, and asked him how he would describe a pinterest outfit in general.
“it’s when young, model-like girls dress like they’re sixty.”
me: but babe, all of that is coming back in style.
troy: not with me! i’m still for jeans and t-shirts. no more skirts that look like my grandma’s couch and high-waisted pants, flowy- look at your shirt!, pastel blouses that show no figure at all and probably have shoulder pads. (um…mine did before i cut them out…) and pastels! look at your fingers. (they’re currently martha stewart blue although i was going for mint.) what grandma doesn’t have that color in her house somewhere? (it was my grandma y’s favorite color.) all your necklaces are gold which hasn’t been in since 1990. (i did used to hate gold…) there’s all this floral stuff everywhere- even on your shoes. and your necklaces have lots of flowers on them.
i quickly cut in that he had bought the rose necklace i was wearing.
troy: i got that necklace for you because you’re a 70-year-old woman.
that man is hilarious. and you know what? he’s right. a lot of the styles for spring are a new spin on things i used to consider unfashionable. it just goes to show that fashion rules are meant to be broken! proof from some stylish ladies:
are any of these trends that you’ve changed your mindset about, too?
