How I Spent My Birthday And Man Style

Posted on: September 9, 2014

My one birthday wish was to take advantage of the time with my husband and go to the Mall…

Not a surprise for a fashion blogger….

However, my wish was to find something of a statement piece for my husband as

he doesn’t like to get himself things often.

In packing for Ireland, I had so many choices, while he does not…

He works 6 days a week and just doesn’t feel the need for great casual wear..

Men | Jackets & Coats | H&M US

This H&M bomber jacket was among two I picked for him to try on and the one he ended up buying…

I was literally smiling ear to ear and telling him that I am tickled pink!  

It looks fabulous on him!

I also talked him into this shawl collar sweater as he doesn’t have anything in that style. 

The only other things I’d like to add for the trip for him are both in cognac- a belt and shoes…

He is very picky about shoes , so wish me luck finding the right pair…

Dear Readers, don’t you worry, I am not all self sacrificing, my birthday present is coming… I want the luxury of choosing the Aran sweater of my dreams on our Ireland trip… I don’t know what that is yet, but I will know it when I see it!  

Layered henleys. You say you don't like this collar but I think it looks great, esp layered like in this pic.

I pinned this look for inspiration because I love the two Henley’s together…

I bought a grey and navy Henley from Old Navy  for DH to try this..

I also ordered him this sweater from Old Navy, since he has all solid sweaters.

It’s been fun finding clothes for my husband


I am grateful to my husband for starting my day off with breakfast in bed…

I am grateful for a fun day with my husband and youngest son at the mall..

I am grateful that my husband granted me my birthday of shopping for him…

I am grateful for my dear friend who took me out to dinner and a movie!

I am grateful for all the birthday wishes from friends, readers  and family.

I am grateful for 49 wonderful years of life! 

I am grateful for chocolate cake!
