The fourth annual Jeff Dresses Jennifer for Work Week was held last week, March 18-22. Overall, the week was a huge success. Jeff thoughtfully created a chart with a theme for each day, breaking down how the whole style should be put together. He put a lot of thought and energy into each look.
Monday, March 18: Casual Monday
On Monday, Jeff went for a casual spring look, pairing a navy colorblock maxi dress (Tara Lynn’s Boutique) with a light denim jacket (Loft) and matching pink sneakers (Keds). He added simple silver jewelry and a carefree ponytail to complete the look. I loved this outfit and would have picked it for myself.
Tuesday, March 19: Forties Forever
Tuesday, Jeff decided to embrace my love for vintage fashion… especially when it comes to the 1940’s and 50’s. This retro inspired look included a red embroidered sweater (ModCloth) and blue checked trousers (Loft) with my brown “bowling shoe” loafers (Keds) and big bouncy hair. I totally felt fierce this day.
Wednesday, March 20: Floral Flight Into Spring
This was the first day of spring, so Jeff decided to play on this for the outfit. He paired a salmon colored sweater and a flippy floral skirt (Loft) with pink ballet flats (Toms) for a fun spring style. He added bouncy curls and floral jewelry to complete the look. While I DID like the look, in general, I would have paired it with a little less jewelry and different shoes.
Thursday, March 21: Disneybound
I am a HUGE Disney fanatic… like, huge! So Jeff decided to jump on the Disneybound train and try something big. I was a little bit skeptical at first, but I absolutely LOVED this outfit. It was probably my favorite of the whole week. While people debated a bit as to who I was, I think it was pretty easy to guess. Jeff paired a crisp white shirt (Dress Barn), a navy blazer (Eloquii), a yellow midi skirt (Lane Bryant), and a red bow tie (Vineyard Vines) with yellow flats (Tieks) for the perfect Donald Duck look.
Friday, March 22: Golden Glitz
Oh, pattern mixing. I just can’t get behind this trend in my style POV, but Jeff makes an attempt every year. This year he went for a gold and blue palette with a gold and blue striped shirt (Torrid), a gold floral skirt (Lu La Roe), and gold glitter sneakers (Keds) with gold jewelry. I really, really tried to embrace this one, but I just felt off my game all day. I think if he had styled it with the shirt tucked in, that would have helped. Some of my designer friends said that he did great and this outfit really works. But, this one was a swing and a miss for me.
All in all, the week really was a success. I am proud that I have a husband who has a clue when it comes to style. He voluntarily shops with me… and watches Project Runway, so I win! I am excited to see what he has in store for next year.
