Oh that handsome guy on my left? That’s my husband, Aaron. If you were ever wondering who takes all the photos for Unfancy, that’s him. He’s my favorite person on this planet. When we’re together, we feel like a couple of kids who can take on this world. We’ve been married for about 3 years, and every morning when I open my eyes, I get excited like it’s Christmas morning because he’s next to me.
When I started Unfancy, I proposed the idea of doing some outfit photos together at some point, because as a couple, I feel like it can be tricky to wear styles that compliment each other — we’re not talking about being matchy-matchy or taking this too seriously, but we are talking about looking like you both came from the same stye universe. Lucky for all of us, Aaron was immediately on board. So here we are. Hi!
These are typical outfits for a dinner + movie date at The Drafthouse. Aaron was way more into movies than I was when we first got married (he’s kind of a movie snob), but I’ve come around, and now we can debate the plot holes all night long. :) The Drafthouse is our theatre of choice in Austin because we can order food, fancy restaurant style, during the movie. One Godfather pizza, please’n’thanks.
Aaron’s look: When he started upgrading his wardrobe, these were the first three things on his list: a good white v-neck tee + a dark wash jean in a slimmer fit + black sneakers that could go casual or a little bit nicer. If you’re wanting to help your guy upgrade his style, I’d say this is the place to start, too. Top: HM / Bottoms: Cotton On / Shoes: Aldo / Watch: Fossil
My look: When we’re going to the movies, I’ve learned to always wear jeans (even in the summer) because I will inevitably get cold. But I’ve also learned to wear dark colors, because eating pizza in a dark movie theatre means I’ll inevitably get pizza sauce on me. You never knew I was so strategic in my outfit choices did you?

Why they work together: Both outfits are a similar style — understated + minimal + cool. Both outfits are operating in a similar general color palate (which sometimes can be overkill, but this time it works). Both outfits have elements made out of similar, casual fabrics.
What do you think? Are you on board with this idea of couple style?
