Style Files Vol 12 | My Dad’s Modeling Debut :)

Jun 30, 2016

Today I talked my Dad into modeling with me for my post.   I usually use Matt for my men’s posts but I thought my Dad needed a feature since June is his birthday month and Father’s Day.  I can’t say enough great things about my Dad.  He is hard working, loving, funny, compassionate and most of all an amazing Dad- and model:)  and did I mention he knows how to build and fix anything??  I always put him to work at my house when he visits.  The older I get the more I appreciate and realize all that he does for us and I truly love spending time with he and my mom.  

Dad’s Outfit |  Linen Blend blouse | Jeans | Loafers | Watch

My Outfit | Dress | Sandals

If you are looking for gift or just a new style button up for the guys I really love this one my Dad is wearing.  My mom gave him this as a gift last year for his Birthday and it is still a favorite.  It is a linen blend so it is lightweight,  great for the Summer months and into Fall.

Dad is wearing the white color but it also comes in 3 different pale blue options.

I also really like this indigo version.

The shirt runs pretty true to size my Dad is in the XX-large, he is pretty tall guy at 6’6 so that is his standard size. 

Jeans  | Loafers

Love this big guy so much!  He makes a pretty handsome model I must say. 

and my favorite picture,  the thinker pose- haha! 

The Nordstrom Men’s Designer Collection has some really great options for pre-fall.  I like that these are pieces you can wear now and into Fall.

Button up | Driving Shoes | Tee | Jacket
Shorts | Bowtie | Card Holder | Wallet 
Stripe Tie | Check Tie | Polo | Shorts

I also wanted to mention my dress, it is the same dress I packed and wore while in St Maarten.  For fit it runs TTS, I am wearing a size small.  It is fully lined and what I really love about it is the tiered bottom and pattern.  It makes for a fun and easy dress.  It has been on repeat lately as it is perfect to toss on with flip flops and run errands and also dress up at night.
