You guys, how fun is it to have Andy on the blog with me today?!? I know how much you all love seeing bits and pieces of my little fam on Insta Stories so I thought it would be so fun to give him a feature here. Also because I get asked about his style all the time!
With Andy’s job he’s usually wearing suits and ties but is often in situations where the attire calls for dressy/casual. That can mean different things to different people but I find his outfit choices pretty swoon worthy. Who doesn’t love a well-dressed man haha!? I love the layered looks he puts together and the subtle mixing of brown with black and navy is something he does often (I’m not even totally sure he means to do it to be stylish haha). If you take a look at Andy’s closet overall you’ll find that basically all of the pieces can be mixed and matched to make a ton of different outfits. He says when he started having to buy nice suits for work he had to make sure he could wear them different ways – he tends to see a lot of the same people and it can get pricey to have to buy a ton of different items.
I get asked a lot if I do his shopping for him, and the answer is NO! As much as I love shopping I don’t fully understand mens sizing and fit. What I think is “well fitted” Andy will say is tight and uncomfortable (don’t even get me started on his “skinny jean” comments…). He does take my advice when it comes to WHERE he shops though and his new found fave is definitely Nordstrom! He loves the one-stop-shop as well as the order online/pick up in store option. He’s in and out of town so frequently that he needs to find items quickly and know that it will be the quality he’s looking for.
As for the outfit he chose for this feature I have to say these jeans and shoes are definitely must have wardrobe staples. Andy’s advice is to go true to size in this denim – he thought they were too fitted at first but after wearing them around the house a bit he said they stretched out nicely and loves the fit! He’s also paired these shoes with suits and they look great! My two cents, I lovvve a good brown dress shoe and pair of dark denim! His sweater/button up combo is something he wears a lot and I also think would be a great option for family photos or even a date night! He chose the black sweater for this feature but also has a few different colors that he will mix and match with different under shirts and they always look so nice.
Since being in front of the camera can be a bit intimidating I decided to join in on the pics and you can shop both of our looks below! And I have to give the biggest shoutout to this awesome guy for playing along and showing me so much support here 🙂
