Matthew and I share a mutual love for fashion, vintage, and sewing. We met at Buffalo Exchange four years ago- he was a buyer and I was selling back some thrifted finds to purchase a vintage dress. I must admit, he encourages me to rummage through charity shops and flea markets. I often find fancy bowties, wingtip shoes, and leather bags to add to his growing collection. Although he dresses quite dapper everyday, he is also a sucker for vintage Pendleton shirts and Southwestern paraphernalia. It's been fun to see his style progress- from a t-shirt and slim slacks to 1960s ties and blazers.
After a day of exploring Ann Arbor and eating homemade ice cream in Kerrytown, I snapped a few photos of Matty's weekend outfit. He is quite good at mixing patterns, something that I am quite envious of.  We both tailored parts of our outfit (I altered my skirt , he altered his pants). And he wanted me to tell you all that he is quite proud of his newly-thrifted 1940's vintage bowtie.

You two look adorable together : ) It's fun to see well dressed couples together. And I really like the looking you are wearing! It's a classic look in terms of the colors and patterns, but with a different twist on it. Looks great!

Michal :

Most stylish couple ever? I think so. Tell Matty he has every reason to be proud of that bowtie. Also, I think it is probably the cutest thing in the whole world that you met at a thrift store.

Love your polka dotted blouse. I love how big and bold the dots are, it makes it so much more fun then a normal polka dot pattern! xoxo

Christy :

You two make such a stylish couple! I love that you met at a thrift store; what could be more adorable? I'm especially digging Matty's shoes and bowtie (1940's! wow).

You look gorgeous as always! The skirt was definitely worth altering; I love the paperbag waist on you!

I'll be back on Monday, half of me can't wait, the other half never wants to leave. I ended up leaving half my clothes in Berlin I was sick to death of wearing and replacing them with new thrifted finds. haha.

dusanabotswana :

Wow, your man has great style AND can sew! I was already impressed with the style but finding a man who can alter his own pants sure is impressive! (Well ok actually, it’s almost a rarity for everyone nowadays, but I think style blogs make me forget.) You both look great! I love your bright red skirt & polka dot blouse.

also, i just came through bloglovin & it wasnt working to commetn but going here normall did, just wanted to let you know.

I love that bright red skirt and polka-dotted top. Matt looks like someone out of Mumford and Sons. (total compliment by the way) Thanks for brighting my day.

jess :

Your outfit is adorable! He looks great too.

SomeoneLikeYou :

Oh, you two are probably the best dressed couple I've ever seen! If I only could get my boyfriend to dress as dapper and handsome as yours does.. Sigh, and girl can dream, right?

I just absolutely adore your outfit to pieces. Everything just works perfectly!

I can't believe I haven't started following your blog yet. It's quickly being added to my blog roll list!

Jamie Rose :

You both look so awesome! His plaid shirt and cool vintage bow tie are both amazing. I love the Minnie Mouse vibe of your outfit too! The polka dots and red skirt are perfect together.

Helen :

I love this outfit, red, black & white polka dots is my favourite combo I think.

Maria Ramona :

love that color combo of black white and red. you and your man are both lookin' good-- quite the dapper couple indeed!

Lea :

Aaah. The red is so bright and amazing. I hardly ever wear red but have been looking to try to incorporate it and more vibrant colors into my wardrobe. Love how you've sort of neutralized it with the b&w top--which is adorable, by the way :D

AND, you guys are so very sweet. Any guy who can confidently wear a bowtie is pretty awesome. Oh, and tassled loafers :) This whole post makes me smile a lot.

Alicia :

I am completely in love with your polka dot top and paper-bag-waist skirt! I can never get enough polka dots. And what an impressively dapper gentleman!

I would very much like to steal a lick of your ice cream, but that would involve both jet and time travel - too complicated.

Ruby Girl :

You two are quite a dapper couple!! I love to see men wear bow ties ...even more so with plaid. Your large polka dot top is the best and quite perfect with the red skirt.
