Manicured or could you care less what your yard looks like?

What kind of dresser are you - classy, trendy, bold or combination/no one particular style?

Cook in/grill out or go out on a scorching hot day?

Yah, it's not a good look.  Instead of huge dresses to hide flaws, they should just buy a pair of shorts and be done with it. ;) (snort!) ~

But seriously.  Shorts before fat dresses, anyday.

I always let my man dictate what I wear.

LOL!  Well, keep an eye out for next season.

Nobody said that they let their dh dictate what they wear. Just that they care what they think.

But, actually, my dh actually chooses much of my clothing. He has quite an eye for fashion and is very good at picking out things that are flattering on me/my body type.  And when I go shopping with him, I end up bringing a lot more things home.  Now, if he could only dress himself as well as he dresses me, lol.

The current trend 'round here for the colleg girls is shorts and/or short dresses with cowboy boots. I don't get it.

Women in my position on campuses tend to wear more tailored things, although I do wear jeans to the office on days I don't have appointments or teaching commitments.   I am all about comfort.

The only pair of Birks I have are waterproof garden shoes, but gardening is a solo hobby for me.  My husband does make fun of those shoes, but he seldom sees me wearing them, and he understands their practicality.

Is 2013 the year of rudeness and iack of sensitivity to one's partner's feelings?  I must have missed that.

College students were never really trendsetters, with all of their debts and such.  Summer boots are out there this season, but some women are slaves to fashion. 

It's kind of silly.

Why is he better at women's fashion?  It's rude and insensitive for a man to tell you what to wear.  Or are you saying he looks at women's clothing catalogues, online, etc?  Sounds more like a power struggle.
