Olive and Pink Combo

Posted on: February 9, 2014

Once again I am inspired by the outfit suggestion from YOU LOOK FAB Stylist Angie



I wore this for a Saturday night dinner and movie night with my husband and stay tuned because he allowed me to take his photos as well….


I really like these boot cut pants by Denim & Co via QVC that I purchased in my goal size when I first began my weight loss journey and bought in three colors…. As much as I love a swingy skirt, these bootcuts have enough volume that they move when I walk, such a change from skinnys tucked into boots…


It’s funny take photos at the mall with people and security walking around….

And now for my Husband’s Pics…


He didn’t want to take the jacket off, but I pursuaded him to and he conceded, just for me…  I think he realized that posing isn’t as easy as I make it look, now that I am use to it…


This zippered grey cardigan is among his favorites and one I found at Burlington Coat Factory along with his jeans…

He wears the sweater with many different shirts, but for this night he chose a purple striped one and loves to cuff his sleeves like this… 

His shoes are by Skechers and we found them while on vacation in Nags Head at the outlet mall…. He has similar ones in both brown and white, but really loves this grey version the best.  In fact he requested a second back  up pair for Christmas and I purchased them.  I tried to find the link on the website and didn’t see the grey ones…

While at the mall , we made one purchase at Steinmart, a pair of tan linen pants for his island vacation capsule.

Dear Readers, I love buying clothes for my husband and encouraging him to try new things… sometimes I end up making returns for trying to push him too much outside his comfort zone… Mostly I succeed, so don’t mind when it doesn’t work out… Do you shop for your husband?  Does he share your love of fashion?  


I am grateful for a quiet night, with just the two of us, (my daughter and two younger sons all went out together for fast food and a movie of their own)

I am grateful that after a morning of his cell phone blowing up with work calls, that he was able to relax and have a break  after a very busy week .

I am grateful that my children love spending time together, despite their 4 1/2 years age difference between each of them…

I am grateful for the fun and laughter in my family for example when the youngest came running into my room and gave me the nerf arrow his brother was shooting at him, then turned to his brother who was in hot pursuit, and declared with confidence, ” I doubt you’ll dare to pry that out of MOM’s  hands!”  Remmber these boys are 13 and 18…

Love that hat with the scarf, you look so pretty, Tracey. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!

What a good looking couple! Perfect for date night. Yes, I have sway in what my hubby chooses for his clothes. And yes, there are times he just can’t be pushed that far out of his comfort zone. But usually he’s pretty agreeable.

Oh I LOVE this olive and pink combo! You look so cute! This will be a nice color combo for Spring too. 🙂

great color combination

thank you, I love your blog and like a lot of your posts. I don’t see a place to leave comments, am I missing it???

Your Mr is a lucky man.. you look so cute and absolutely cool!

Pink is a good color for your complexion. Nice outfit. Reminds me of spring.

thanks, I never realized how much pink really does look good on me until taking photos.. and I am wishing for Spring!!!

I think it’s awesome that you got your hubby to pose for you because I got mine to do the same this week! You both look terrific and I really love your pink cap 😉


Your outfit is super cute! I love that you got your hubby to pose! Awesome! Mine is afraid of the camera. Argh! 🙂

Love the color combo! Cute pictures of the two of you! Xoxo

Cute! And oh my goodneess, I love that bag!!


Great color combination! I do shop for my husband, who likes to wear what’s in style.

You are lucky he likes to wear what’s in style… should have seen my husband ridiculing items in Steinmart…

Such a stylish couple! 🙂

Awwwh! You kids make Cutest Couple, by anyone’s standards! You looked lovely and he looked dashing for date night! What did you see? (We got out on Sunday and saw “Monuments Men” … nice to see a big screen for a change!)

We saw the same movie and enjoyed it! Thank you!

Yay! I’m a QVC shopper too. The olive and pink are a great color combination. I really like it. And what a nice look for your husband.

QVC has allowed me to try things I never would have and I love when things go on 6payments!!!
