I was so excited about this outfit. The textures and patterns are interesting together without being too bold. It was an outfit I actually packed for a short trip around Christmas time when we went to see my in-laws. I thought I was being so efficient with packing and only packed two outfits for two days. It didn't even take me long to get it all done.

Our last day there, I came out of the bathroom dressed in this while Matt was laying out his clothing for the day... Same. stinking. outfit. I am serious. Striped shirt, jeans, and tweed puffer vest. Given the fact I didn't pack any extra clothing and Matt didn't either we were stuck. Are you inadvertently dressing the same as your spouse? It's probably just a sign you've been happily married almost 10 years!

  2. That's so funny! My husband and I both have a red and black plaid shirt, and black puffer vest, so we have to be careful there. This is the perfect winter outfit girl, and those boots are killer.

  8. That is too funny, Laura! My husband and I have been together for 20 years (married 15), and there are times when we are getting ready to go somewhere when I look at us and we look like we're 16, going steady, and headed to Six Flags in our matchy outfits. LOL! I totally get where you're coming from. You look adorable, and I bet the two of you looked even more adorable together. ;-)

  10. You're right-- what a gorgeous, put together yet perfectly casual outfit! The different textures/patterns work together SO well! I LOVE the print of your scarf too...I've been on the hunt for a plaid scarf that would match with my green Hunter boots! Did you do a tutorial for this? I'm hoping even a super novice like me could make it (or I'd just pay someone like you to whip it together for me- haha!)

  11. Haha, such a funny story! You should have included a photo of the two of you as twinsies! Love it. I really love your OTK boots!

  13. You're amazing, honey!

    I knew your blog browsing fashion sites and I was in love with your style.

    YOUR BLOG IS SO AMAZING! And you are a beautiful woman!

    All your looks are simply fantastic! You are an inspiring and superbly elegant woman.

    My name is Aline and I´m a Catholic fashion blogger from Rio Grande do Sul, the most Southern brazilian State, without the stereotypes that sell from Brazil to other countries. In Rio Grande do Sul, have cold, snow, more Argentine and Uruguayan culture, the gaucho culture. Well, you can see Rio Grande do Sul is similar to Kansas, Virginia, Georgia, Missouri, Texas, Arizona and the West and the South/Dixie in USA. Our gauchos are the US cowboys.

    So, your look with boots is very SPECIAL for me. I'm a rural woman!

  16. That is pretty adorable that not only do you own similar pieces, but that you both packed them and then wore them on the same day. Adorable.

  17. You both have great taste! haha! A few times hubby and I have ended up coordinating, it's quite funny when it happens. Once all 3 of us ended up dressed very similarly, the toddler too. I still maintain hubby had to have planned that! Had to take a few photos of the occasion :)

  19. That is hilarious and also pretty adorable. If that's not a sign you're meant to be, I don't know what is!! I love the outfit too. You should have taken a pic of you both in your coordinating looks! (I hope you were the only one rocking over-the-knee boots, ha!)

  22. I can't say that has ever happened to me and my husband, but maybe it's something to look forward to when we hit our 10 year mark :)
