good LOOK for less: of the male variety!

So I have had just TONS of requests about working with men on a good LOOK for less wardrobe consultation! The answer is YES, I would love to work with men... since I technically haven't yet though, I figured I should get some practice in.

And who better to "practice" on than my husband?!?

My husband, Andrew, is traveling for work quite a bit these next couple of months. He would rather not (how sweet of him...), while I drool at the thought of new places, new faces and a break from our crazy children! His first stop is London and being the lucky duck that he is, he even gets to squeeze a day or so of sight-seeing in.

With all the traveling and just because he's such a great guy, I figured his wardrobe could use a little sprucing up... whether for work or for play, keep reading to see what I have in store for him...

First the shopping list, for just under $400 I was able to compile 13 new wardrobe pieces. Men's clothing doesn't come as inexpensively as women's does (maybe because they don't buy as much!?!), but I think I did pretty good with what I had to work with budget wise:

Here is how some of the outfits came together:

This first outfit is casual but put together... perfect for hanging with the family. Or an easy travel day outfit - whether by plane or train.
J.Crew at ShopStyle

This outfit is perfect for a casual Friday. I just love how well the brown accessories complement one another without being super matchy.
Old Navy at ShopStyle

Again, this is another outfit that is super laid back and comfortable but not at all sloppy. Graphic tees are huge for men and women these days. I love this particular one because it adds interest with the graphic but without going overboard.

This outfit is perfect for a day in the office, in the States or abroad. I just love the pop of orange in the tie.
