a good boyfriend


Had the first good boyfriend probably four years ago in Healdsburg CA. Husband and friends were at Willi’s Seafood & Raw Bar and I dipped out to do a little shopping. Very fit travel friend thought I was kind of crazy with the purchase, why spend time in the gym if you’re going to wear baggy jeans? That good boyfriend traveled through CA and then the east coast and then Barcelona Spain and haven’t seen them since.

Picked up several more in the meantime and those seem to just disappear too. With four daughters and kind of a one size fits all a good boyfriend could be just about anywhere.

In a bit of desperation picked up this pair over spring break in Naples FL at believe it or not Boston Proper. Nice store in old Naples and was looking for something easy. You know, a good boyfriend loves you five pounds up or five pounds down, is not really looking for the latest in shoes or hair or makeup, but can just kind of be.

Every day dress loving a good boyfriend, and loving that the very best boyfriend is the husband. Love you husband, Happy Father’s Day and wishing you many returns of the day.

Couple of notes: have tried to dress these up for dinner out and find they just don’t work. Yes, they can go to the Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning and can entertain friends and family at home, especially in the country, they just don’t seem to give enough respect when worn out after the runaround. Thoughts?

  1. Agreed! I think a dinner out with a wonderful man calls for something a little more figure flattering. If you have it (and I know you do) show it. Beautiful! See you soon.

  2. I like the boyfriend jeans – everyone should own a pair. My thought/suggestion: hem them to get rid of the cuff thus making the BF look more versatile for something more than the Farmers Market or entertaining at home.

    PS – Always enjoy your blog. Thank you for all you do!
