The only time he's ever said anything about my outfits, was to make a snide, sassy comment about how ridiculous it was. Hey, sometimes I just have to rock a messy bun, athletic shorts and a tank top, dad.
While my dad may not know much about fashion, his protective instinct came out when he made sure to look at the weather for the week to see what types of outfits he needed to pick out for me to wear.
Despite being soft spoken, my dad is a huge jokester once you get to know him. I really thought he'd take this opportunity to make me look as much of a hot mess as he could.
He spent about five minutes sorting through the clothes in my closest before telling me I really needed to go clothes shopping. Is this an offer, dad? He clearly was out of his element here, but despite not knowing what to pick at all, he trucked on.
His matching skills weren't always the best, but at first glance, he wasn't doing all that bad. Who knew my dad was semi decent at putting outfits together?!
From far away the outfit doesn't look that bad. In fact, this outfit even got a "OOO this looks good!" exclamation out of my dad, which is saying something for my dads soft spoken nature.
While we can see how his man brain paired a black and white stripped shirt with black and white stripped shoes, these definitely did not go. You would think he thought I was going to volleyball practice! Oh dad, what were you thinking?!
His reasoning behind this outfit was the spring colors in this dress matched the spring weather outside. Good thinking, dad. I love this dress and my dad's logical reasoning definitely played out well with this outfit.
While he thought the A-line skirt was fitting for work and the black sandals matched the colors, I'm not sure I would ever willingly pick out this outfit.
The grey shirt could have definitely been swapped out for one that matched better. But hey, grey matches sort of well, right? At least my dad didn't stick me in jeans every day.
I secretly think the only reason my dad picked this outfit is because it was what I was wearing when I got engaged. Or, it could be the fact that I pretty much live in leggings.
Whatever the real reasoning behind this outfit, how could you say no to leggings, cute booties and a comfy shirt?! Well done, dad.
Just because it's casual Friday doesn't mean I can get away with wearing this to work, dad. But hey, he had to get me to wear Jayhawks gear in there at least once.
What were you thinking dad?! Some people can rock the jeans and tennis shoes look, I am not one of those people at all.
Overall, my dad did a lot better than I was expecting. I thought I'd come into work wearing the same jeans and t-shirts every day considering that's what he always wore to work. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised even though he complained about how complicated picking out my outfits really was.
