Sam’s style | Grey fedora + cords

Bonus Sam style! You’re welcome.

Seriously, isn’t my husband just the cutest — and so stylish! — in his grey cords and grey felt fedora?! And I think he (secretly) enjoys it when I think he looks so good that I have to take pics. All for you, dear readers. I am selfless that way. ūüėČ

Sam recently took stock of his wardrobe and realized he needed some new jeans. I happened to have a couple of Gap gift cards, so it was perfect timing. Plus, we happened to hit the Gap when they were having a “buy 1, get 1 free” sale!!! Serendipity, y’all.

And Sam has NEVER bought cords before, because he’s always felt they were unflattering. But these cords must be magical. I think it’s because they’re a lighter weight of corduroy — they’re so soft! — and we both love the soft grey color. It’s fun shopping for Sam, as we don’t get to do it as often!

Another shoe portrait of us as a couple! I love these tweed herringbone slip-ons of Sam’s, plus you’re getting a sneak peek at my shoes and my outfit. I’ll post those outfit photos tomorrow, so stay tuned!

Sam so often cracks me up when we’re taking photos, so it’s exciting for me when I get to crack him up and capture photos of it!

Fedoras are definitely Sam’s signature hat! This is a fedora we bought at a wonderful little haberdashery shop in Charlottetown, during our first trip to Prince Edward Island (you can see pics from our second trip to PEI here in this post).

Classic style is timeless! I hope you enjoyed another look at my husband’s cool, classic style.

Double the foxes

I picked up this fox-print scarf back at the beginning of summer, as documented in my monthly budget adventures post for June, and as the scarf colors are so autumnal, I was waiting until fall arrived to bring it out. And why not double the foxes, by pairing this fox-print scarf with my “Ferdy the Fox” sweater?

This was a very comfortable casual weekend look for me, with cords, sneakers, sweater, and lightweight scarf. Sam and I enjoyed a walk through Old Town Tacoma and the Job Carr Cabin Museum. Job Carr was a founding father of Tacoma, arriving in the region in¬†November 1864 and building a cabin near the site where the replicable cabin stands¬†today. The small museum is quite sweet, and the histories of Job Carr and his family members — especially his very independent wife! — are fascinating.

A pocket full of autumn sunshine

These photos were taken on what was probably our last weekend of glorious autumn sunshine for the year (the wintry winds and sleet have since descended).

As I mentioned last week in my post about getting haircuts at cosmetology schools, I spent that morning getting my hair trimmed and shaped. My husband, Sam, and I then spent the rest of the day in downtown Portland, catching a movie (Interstellar), a lunch of good pizza and beer (Pizzicato), and a little shopping (Macy’s with gift cards and coupons). Oh, and taking outfit pictures in public parks. As you do. ūüėČ

I felt quite¬†comfortable and cheerful in¬†my sunny yellow cardigan and bright purple top. Now that I look at it properly, there are actually quite a few colors (yellow, purple, navy) and patterns (animal print, starburst, colorblock) going on, but yet the overall effect looks pretty cohesive to me. I also tend to layer in tank tops and cardigans when I get my ¬†hair cut, because it’s easy to shed the top layer under the salon cape.

Above is a closer shot of the sharper¬†angle my bob has now. I also really like the center part — makes the bangs more dramatic!
