Husband Takeover – The Blue Edit with The Idle Man

Oh my word, can you believe what is going on outside this week? For us brits, the Beast from the East has hit home hard and we aren’t going anywhere until it passes! Well, we did manage to make it to the back garden to take some great photos in the snow. It’s time for my next Husband Takeover – The Blue Edit with The Idle Man.

The Idle Man (@Idle) is a fantastic men’s fashion retailer with hashtag #StyleMadeEasy. The concept is all about minimal yet modern looks and we were so up for working with the brand, that is my husband and I. Paul rarely throws any of his clothes away until they are threadbare, crumpled messes- socks especially! So we had a little wardrobe cleanse to see in the new year, and something blue decided to become the theme of this takeover.

This navy bomber jacket with black fleece collar detail works so well to protect Paul in the -4 degree chill.

I love how Paul looks in blue, it’s definitely his colour. Above he is wearing the Borg bomber jacket, classic long-sleeved t-shirt and slim fit stonewash jeans from The Idle Man.

There’s no problem with wearing blue head to toe as long as you choose different shades. Dark jacket with light jeans and vice versa. Now onto the second look:

We fell in love with this stonewash denim western jacket- it really works with Paul’s playful style and his inner childhood cowboy!

The Idle Man, stocks everything from jackets and jeans to trainers and t-shirts and is a real go-to destination for men. Alongside the online shop, The Idle Man Manual is a blog dedicated to offering style advice as well as stories and guides about music, grooming and lifestyle!

Husband takeover- what it takes to be a BoohooMAN

I love it when my family gets the opportunity to take part in my blog posts. Remember when we did that video where Paul did my makeup? Well he has certainly loved getting involved, and now it’s time to show you a different side to him in my husband takeover- what it takes to be a BoohooMAN.

BoohooMAN launched its first full range of Big & Tall clothing this season, helping to deliver a one stop fashion destination for men of all ages. There is a sizeable age gap between my husband and I, but that doesn’t mean we don’t work together in life or through our style. When Paul wants to be, he can be dapper, handsome and just as youthful as me!

To me, here is what it takes to be a BoohooMAN:

A BoohooMAN is someone you can share your worst fears with and who doesn’t judge you.

A BoohooMAN is someone who will always stay true to what he believes in, and won’t let anyone steer him down a different path.

A BoohooMAN will be honest, supportive and will make you see sense when you have lost your sight.

To me, Paul is the definition of what it takes to be a BoohooMAN and always has been. 7 years ago (give or take a few months) I knew I had met someone very special. He proves this to me every day and sees me through my crazy mood swings without any sign of stress or anger.
