Menswear 101: Is Semi-Formal the Best Outfit Pick for Men?

Let's turn the tables and talk menswear for a minute. My husband is definitely not as interested in fashion as I am but, he does keep trends in mind and likes to look his best when leaving the house. But one thing any fashionable man will tell you is that it is absolutely true that men have always had easier choices than ladies when it comes to choosing the right outfit for any occasion. Just take a look at what men wear for business casual. Button up shirt and slacks. 

The only thing that men need to focus on when picking an outfit is the level of formality. No one wants to look too formal if the occasion is more laid back. And no one wants to be underdressed either! So a great solution for many guys is semi-formal attire. Semi-formal attire can suite a wide variety of occasions with both the formal and casual details that come with it.

Cute Sweater Dresses for Winter

These days I typically am in casual outfits like leggings or jeans so when I have the opportunity to dress up, I grab onto it, no matter the weather. So when we are fortunate enough to have a date night or any other reason to put a little extra glam in my outfit I like to have my options. Living in the midwest or other locations where winter can take a figurative (or literal) dump on you, that means sweater dresses are the perfect option for when you want to dress up, but still need to do battle with the cold. 

I was recently approached by Femme Luxe to try out a few of their items. Honestly, many of their things were a little too revealing for my taste, but I did see several sweater dresses that had lots of potential, especially given our recent snowfall.

The Top Crucial Habits for Good Skin

The Top Crucial Habits for Good Skin

It takes a lot of effort to achieve clear and healthy looking skin. I have battled with my skin for most of my adult life trying to decrease breakouts. With the environment being constantly laden with pollutants and the degree of stress becoming more and more rampant by the day, not to mention if you are prone to acne, it is easy for many of us to feel overwhelmed! Fortunately, several beauty companies like Cosrx and experts have compiled a list on how to keep your youthful appearance even during the worst of times.

TBB Asks: Keep me Entertained
It's that time of the month again and I am linking up with The Blended Blog and answering their questions. The theme this month is entertainment. Don't we all like to be entertained? My daughters definitely entertain me, but when they are not around, I like to relax with a book, movie, or tv show! Here are my answers to their questions!
