It seems to take a ridiculous amount of effort to make it to a winery — even though there are a handful about 20 minutes from our apartment — but it’s ALWAYS worth it.
Even as I’m typing that, I’m giving myself a stiff talkin’ to: Okay, no more excuses. We’re getting to a winery in the next few days. I mean, we have the outfits for it, so … leggo!
We do wineries casual, wearing comfy clothes so we can walk the grounds + play bocce ball + spread out a little wine n’ cheese picnic. If you’re ever in Austin, you’ll have to stop by the Duchman Winery (it’s our favorite!).
This is the ultimate effortless-cool-guy look. The denim + denim is a bit hipster (perfect for Austin), but Aaron’s shoes + watch + hairstyle class it up.
I’m going to say it — I love Aaron in denim + denim. He can do no wrong in it. He picked up these jorts at Forever21 this year, and he loves them. No complaints from the wifey, either. ;)
While I think this outfit would work with almost any shoe (Jack Purcells, New Balance sneaks, flip flops) these cognac leather sneaks add some serious style to the look. Lesson #1 on guy style: modern shoes matter. We’ve found that almost anything at Aldo looks modern and matches Aaron’s cool style.
I feel a bit repetitive chatting about my outfit because I posted this exact outfit a few weeks ago. But I’ll just comment that a summer date to a winery in Texas demands shorts + short sleeves. Otherwise I might die of heat stroke, and well … that would be unfortunate.
Other notes: A bigger bag is necessary because that’s where the goodies for the picnic hide out. A hat helps keep the sun off my face and — bonus! — helps the hair situation in case it’s windy out. And I like wearing sandals so I can slip them off easily + feel the grass between my toes.
WHY THEY WORK TOGETHER
We’re both wearing cutoff jean shorts, which is one of the subtleties that keeps our outfits in the same style universe. By wearing different washes though, we are staying out of matchy-matchy land.
We’re also both wearing shoes from the casual side — flat sandals and sneaks tend to work well together like that.
Finally, even though our shirts are different, they are both snappy — not fancy, but not sloppy. Just snappy. His chambray work shirt + my linen graphic tee were practically made for each other.
