I’m back & OOTD (Easter 2016)

Hi everyone!!! It has been along time since I’ve posted on my blog. These past few months have been difficult me for me and my family mentally and emotionally. Some of you may know that two years ago, my little sister killed three days before my birthday. My family is still grieving and trying to cope with this loss. We celebrated her birthday (Jan. 1st) and her remembrance day (March 15th) while remembering all the good times we’ve had with her.

I’ve also been working towards my 3rd degree and will be graduating with my MAT in Elementary Education. I’m so happy that I will be graduating in June 🙂

I feel like I am able to give my full attention back to my blog and hope that you all will continue to join me on this journey.

Men’s Style Mondays: Choosing the Perfect Watch

My husband is a watch fanatic! He has so many watches, and still considers purchasing more. (Sidenote: I can’t say anything because I am the same way with shoes lol). So I finally sat him down and asked him, “how to do choose the perfect watch?” I caught him by surprise, but quickly, he was eager to explain.

Having watches based on your lifestyle:

He suggest having a watch for work and play.  When looking for a watch for work, consider looking for one that is classic and more tasting.

Stainless steel vs. leather:

He feels that stainless steel is more practical than leather and it is more durable. It is dressy enough work and casual enough for other events. It’s also waterproof which is a good thing.

The Face:

The face compared to the person’s wrist is very important. This needs to be considered when purchasing a watch. He states , “Since I am a big guy, I need to be careful because I don’t want my watch to look like a woman’s watch!” Since watch makers are becoming more of a trend, so he doesn’t have problem with that. I personally like the bigger faces.

Color:

Color of the face and strap is important. There are many colors, but when building a wardrobe, consider looking for watches that will blend and will look appropriate in business and casuals settings.

Until next time…

Men’s Style Monday: Holiday Outfits

Hello everyone!

18 more days until Christmas!!!!!! Whoohoo!

In my last post I talked about different Holiday outfits for women. In this post I figured I would give some men some ideas for upcoming events that they may be attending. Since I will be hosting my Holiday party soon, I should give my husband some ideas 🙂

I loved all of these outfits and my husband did as well.

My favorite is the first one (with the plaid pants). I don’t know why, but I’m loving the pants. My hubby thought the last photo (the sweater) was nice. I can see him wearing that on a day to day basis at his job. This is more of his style and his students are always complimenting him on his outfits.

So do you have a favorite? Are you and your significant other doing anything special that requires you to dress up?
