What an attractive couple! I, too, am really drawn to the light grey, white, yellow combo on her. His cap finishes his casual look. Both of them seem ready to have a relaxed, fun day together dressed for comfort with a little style thrown in.
She is splendid. I don't care what others say but she is a stand out wherever she is and whatever she is wearing. The Dude on the other hand is completely ordinary and I doubt women (or men) look at him twice in the street.
About the grey cardigan: yesterday when I saw this pic I was blown away. Later in Nordstrom's I noticed a whole array of grey cardigan's and damn if I didn't come away with two of them. The influence of this shot made me choose a lightweight Theory short sleeve sweater that combines shades of grey, yellow, and white and a Michael Stars very thin bright yellow drape-neck T for underneath. I also got another tie-front grey sweater from BCBG that is going to work 3 seasons of the year. See what you made me do?!?
This picture is so interesting, from far away it doesnt look very different or unique, but when you look at the details it stands out. The large neck hole, the oversized shirt pocket, the hat, the shoes, the collar on her sweater, and ofcourse her pretty face.
Perfect example of how the right accessories may work for you. The sandals look perfect with the mini. The bag makes sure the cardigan does not look too heavy. Nice color palette. I love the way he paired the cap with the boots and not overplayed the look. Anything more and he's belong in a reenactment.
So – in the 70's a boot called Kodiak worn by construction workers across Canada became all the rage for kids in high school where I lived. They were worn unlaced and with the jeans casually tucked inside. Sometimes with the Grey white and red striped work socks over the jeans. My folks hated the look and said it looked sloppy, I just liked it 'cause it looked so tough. It is softened in this picture but the boot look being so in is killing me because I remember it being pretty anti-fashion once upon a time!
I agree, it was a “tough” look, at it looked great!! One thing it had going for it that this guy’s look doesn’t is that Kodiaks had the tongue attached all the way up the side of the boot, so that you actually could wear them unlaced, still keep your pantlegs tucked in them (well, more or less, according to taste), and not look like a total schlep.
