His & Hers Fall Style

October has to be my favorite month of the year. The weather is perfection and it’s as if the trees come to life in vibrant shades of yellow, orange, and red. Fall is officially here in Wisconsin and I’ve been breaking out my favorite autumn pieces- from booties to dark wash denim to cozy cold weather accessories. Our new Nordstrom Rack store opened in Madison this month and today’s post features a few pieces I’ve picked up from the new location!

In today’s post I’m doing something a little different. Normally, my boyfriend’s the one behind the camera for many of my outfit posts, but I wanted to treat him to his own feature! He has great style to begin with, but I love any occasion that he gets a little bit dressed up. I’m a sucker for a tie & button down- so handsome!

In my styling session with Kyle we incorporated a couple of great fall menswear pieces: a chambray button down, plaid tie & patterned socks. The chambray button down is a versatile wardrobe staple for any guy to have in their closet. Choosing a tie with a more casual fabric than silk gives it a cool, laid back vibe. The socks are probably my favorite part of the outfit, they’re such a fun pop of print! I’ve been buying patterned socks for him & he’s started wearing them to work every day!

Socks: English Laundry via Nordstrom Rack
I couldn’t resist taking advantage of our photo shoot and had to jump in for a picture with him. I’m wearing a couple of my favorite recent buys from Nordstrom Rack, a perfectly floaty blouse & embellished knit headband (I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve gotten on it)!

A tip for the guys who don’t enjoy getting dressed up- ease them into a more dapper look by pairing pieces they’re comfortable with (an un-stuffy button down) with more refined pieces like a patterned tie & khaki pants. This look was totally out of Kyle’s comfort zone, but he ended up loving it. A perk to being a fashion blogger’s boyfriend is having a built in stylist, right? Might as well take advantage of my fashion know-how!
