~ Couple’s Fashion: Spring!

Hey y’all, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! Ours was rainy and mostly spent indoors curled up in bed with Netflix (Silicon Valley), good food and great company. Houston is going cray cray with all this rain! We watched ‘Me Before You’ in the theatres and it was a cute movie. It was quite interesting to see Emilia Clarke being anything but Khaleesi (shout out to my fellow GOT fans!) and btw the latest GOT episode was like OMG! Yeah yeah, you can read further, no spoilers in this post, I promise 😉

So coming back to what this post is about, the hubby and I are both fond of dressing up. Be it dinner with friends, a movie, a date night or just us being out and about, we both like to be dressed well.  In general, a couple should to complement one another and luckily for me and the hubby, we are on the same page even about being stylish, with the hubby being more so than me sometimes!

Today I am sharing details on some of our looks from this spring! Houston in spring is mostly comfortable, not too hot and not chilly either (some of you will definitely debate that Houston is never chilly, but for me, 60s is chilly! What can I say, 8 years in Houston has made me a true Houstonion! Haha!!) In spring I usually wear shrugs as they are breathable and can also keep you warm on those nights that turn chilly while you are out and about. Wrapping around a scarf can also be a stylish way to keep warm and add to your look. In spring and summer, the hubby prefers linen shirts or light colored t-shirts to keep cool. I’ll be sharing summer looks in some upcoming posts.

In the collage above, the pictures are from all over – my birthday dinner, artsy Saturday around town, dinner with a friend at City Center and a simple day around town, running errands.

Until next time… Stay stylish! Ciao.
