My Dad Styles My Outfit

My Dad Styles My Outfit

Seeing as last week’s post with Aaron styling my outfit went down so well with you guys, I thought I’d bring in my Dad for another post for fun!
He took me out into town on Saturday afternoon to pick up my new specs from Specsavers, we had a coffee, half a pint of Guinness in the pub (never properly had it – Dad got some black currant juice put in it, but it was still revolting 😂) and on the way home I told him he needed to come in and style an outfit for me, as he needed to pop up and collect some wedding reception invites to take with him anyway ☺️.
If you’ve read for a while, you might remember I did a post about Who Influenced My Love of Clothes and know that my Dad is one of the most outrageously dressed people you’ll ever meet. So I thought he’d be the perfect person to continue what I think is going to turn into a series. Same as last time, here’s my dictation of our conversation and I hope you enjoy… Again, sorry for the fucks in this conversation, don’t say you weren’t warned!
D: Well those are fucking awful
G: Dad, they’re my Aladdin boots
D: Ay?!
G: They are so cool, how can you not love them?!
D: Well you’re not going to be wearing any fucking shoes are you? God.
G: Why?!
D: They’re all shit.
G: No they’re not.
*G Laughing*
G: Oh, white Converse…
D: I’m just looking!
G: Oh, he’s just looking.

*Hanger flipping*
G: I’m very intrigued by what you’re going to pick. That jacket is like…amazing.
D: Don’t try and fuckin’ influence MY decision.
G: I’m not trying to influence ANYTHING. Just telling you that that jacket is amazeballs. *Laughing* He’s gone for it hahaha!
G: I’ve got drawers with tops and stuff in as well. And bottoms.
*More hanger flipping*
G: You can also pick anything I’m wearing right now. *Dad looks me up and down and turns back to the wardrobe*
*More hanger flipping*
G: Okay we’ve got a grey, high neck midi dress.
D: Have you got jeans?
G: In the bottom drawer down there. In there, bottom drawer!
D: I’m only getting half the fuckin’
G: Yeah, that drawer and the drawer above. The other two are Aaron’s.
*Cupboard door slams*
G: That’s a midi dress Dad!
D: It’s my fucking choice.
G: Midi dress and jeans?
D: Hmm?
G: Midi dress and jeans?
D: Don’t tell me what’s in when you’re picking, you fucking choose what you want!
G: Alriiight! *Chuckling* They’re inside out but… What I’m gunna do Dad is I’ll wait until you’ve gone to try everything on, then I’ll take pictures of it and it’ll be a surprise for you too… I haven’t worn those yet.
G: Oh, we’re not going for that, or are we? OH DAD DON’T PUT IT IN THAT WAY! Aaron does that as well, it winds me up. Look all my hangers hook IN.
*More hanger flipping*
G: Gone for a Topshop light blue shirt…A bit of style advice then…
D: What?
G: From the person that’s very judgey about my shoes, what shoes do you think I should have?
D: Brown leather brogues.
G: Brown leather brogues, we’ll add it to the shopping list then.
D: With a buckle.
G: With a buckle. Why a buckle?!
D: Because it’s different.
G: Oh.
D: Where are your socks?!
G: Why do you want to know where my socks are?!
D: Well you want fuckin’ socks don’t ya?!
G: You don’t need to go that far, I can sort socks out.
D: I need something in white, to go underneath.
D: That, that’ll go like that, with them.
G: Okay. Hold on. Let me take a picture, do you want to stand next to the outfit?
D: Idiot! 
*Both laughing*
D: And a scarf.
G: What one?
D: That one. 
DISCLOSURE: I forgot to add the scarf when shooting the pictures – soz Dad!
D: That’ll do.

G: This one? Cool. Move in front of the window, we get a better lighting that way. See?!
D: Okay, am I done now?!
G: Well, are you happy?!
D: Yeah! Ooh, and that hat.
G: Okay, that’s Aaron’s one (Dad got us both hats at Christmas)
D: NOPE, that’s it.
DISCLOSURE: Again, I forgot to add the hat lol – soz again Dad.
G: Alright, I’ll put those together and style it!

    I’m loving these types of posts, they’re absolutely hilarious! I sit literally chuckling to myself reading them. I want to know what your Aladdin boots are! I actually really love the look he came up with, it’s just the right amount of smart mixed with casual and I love the colour of the shirt x

    Love that your dad is so expressive with his fashion sense. This is such a funny and REAL post about him picking out an outfit for you. He actually did pick out a really cute outfit!

      Haha thank you lovely – he is honestly one of the most outrageous people I know and has always prided himself on his hat wearing ways 😂❤️

    This is such an adorable post, you guys sound like you have a great relationship! And the end result is pretty fabulous, the colours go so well together and its just the right mix of smart and cute. I deffo think you two look pretty similar too, he seemed a lot more enthused to do this than Aaron did haha!
