The Battle of the Clothes: Men vs Women!

13 Feb

Today I had a lot to get done before we leave tomorrow for our trip! I had to go to work and get things done for them, return a dress and mail out some things. Then I met Dan for lunch, he was out at Home Depot…where else? Picking up some flooring for the bathroom remodel! Thank goodness for his $700.00 in gift certificates from Christmas/House warming gifts :).

After lunch we were talking about the trip and I mentioned that I planned to wear my Nike Sweatpants while driving down. they are green and pink capris and I love them. At almost 4 months pregnant I need to be comfortable for the 12 hour drive to North Carolina and from there Florida! Dan says, “Of course you are I would have bet on it, those things are terrible and make you look homeless.I bet you will also wear a bright pink shirt that can be seen from space to complete the look.”

I just laughed because he had me, I totally plan on wearing a hot pink tank top and a sweatshirt over it. Clearly must be paired with hot pink shoes as well.

I love these pants and get a lot of compliments on them, mostly from ladies though so I guess that should tell me something!

On the drive home I heard that they polled men on which women’s fashions they dislike.

Number 1 was animal print. Which I don’t agree with I have some snake print leggings and Dan loves them!

Number 2 was high waisted jeans. NEVER WOULD I EVEN WEAR THESE!

So this made me want to make to make a list of the clothes I wear that Dan finds unattractive!

1.) Crocs and or Ugg boots.

Honestly my two favorite shoes aside from sneakers currently due to comfort plus pregnancy!

I have one pair of brown Uggs that he bought me last Christmas. And I have two pairs of crocs one pink pair and one like this.


These ones are teal, but mine are black. Dan hates them a lot!

2.) Sweatpants or Pajama Pants! 

I don’t know what it is but since I have been pregnant as soon as I come home I like to get comfy so off come the jeans and on come these. He doesn’t even like my Victoria’s Secret Pink! Brand Sweatpants and those are the nice ones! I told him my dressing sexy for him ended when my pants all had to be elasticized. Even my jeans….thanks baby bump :).

3.) Anything I wear while running or working out.

I say pretty and put together Dan says homeless.

Here are some examples:


Running last March at our old house, Dan loves when I run in public with him dressed like this!

Here is a picture of my sweatpants from when I got them in Mexico last year, and the tank I got as well, no I didn’t wear them together just modeling them.


Those are pretty much all his dislikes. He likes all the clothes I wear when we go out and i dress like a normal everyday person!


What do you dislike that you Significant Other wears?  If single what do you dislike that other people wear? 

I really dislike Dan’s older jeans! They are way too big and he insists on buying a 32″ inseam at 6’5″ a bit too sort and too big in the waist. I have been slowly swapping them out for smaller waists and longer length pairs! But dont tell 😉

What does you SO not like that you wear? If you are single what do people not like that you wear?

For the second part of this my Mom and Aunt Tamarra like to pick on things my Aunt Kim wears. But Kim I loved the pants with the flowers you wore to the movies :).

    Um, I always get into comfy clothes as soon as I get home from work, so don’t feel bad! 🙂

      I never feel bad, Dan just makes fun of me. But that is nothing new!

    HEY.. I was loving this blog until I got to the end. I had no idea that my sisters didn’t appreciate my individual style. I’m not that freaky but as I get older I feel like pinning flowers in my hair and wearing pink checkered pants with a sparkly top and a polka dot jacket. Lime green of course.

    They do like your style but none of you dress the same.
    Don’t get offended they make fun of what I wear too! Plus were cool! You need to hang out with young people remember and you dress young so that’s a good thing 🙂
    Plus wasn’t it you that told mom she better not go to church in those nylons she was wearing 😉
