Do you trust your husband to pick your clothes?

A couple of years ago, my husband saw a post about a man picking out his wife’s clothes for a week. He wanted to do it. I was a little hesitant. After all, I’m a big fan of t-shirts and flip flops (because it is hot here in Louisiana most of the year) and just knew he would want me to wear skirts and dresses. But I decided to be brave and let him choose my clothes for an entire week.

My husband, Logan, actually loves to pick out my clothes…but normally, I reserve that for date nights. (Our favorite date is the Goodwill date—we pick out each other’s clothes at Goodwill and then wear them to lunch/dinner.) But letting him pick out my clothes for 7 days?? That’s a much bigger commitment and requires a lot more trust.

We learned a lot from that week of him picking out my clothes, though, so I’m glad we did it. I realized he has pretty good fashion sense and that I needed to trust him more. He learned that it’s hard to pick out clothes for a woman every day and that I actually do trust him. It was pretty fun, too! Here are the pictures (selfies because Logan was usually at work once I was dressed) from that week in 2017, with commentary:

2017 day 1
Totally something I would wear normally, so it was a good start
2017 Day 2
Inward groan because I had never worn this…but turns out it’s pretty cute and comfy
2017 Day 2 part 2
I went out for dinner with friends that night so obviously Logan wanted to pick another outfit…and it was another dress I had never worn
2017 Day 3 take 1
He picked this (the skirt I had never worn) for me to wear to a birthday party an hour away  with our 3 kids while he was at work so I convinced him to let me wear this to vigil Mass later that day
2017 take 2
This was much more appropriate for a kids birthday party
2017 Day 5
I had worn this a month earlier to a wedding so it was weird wearing it on an average day
2017 Day 4
Another fancy dress on an average day, which was weird
2017 Day 6
One of my fave outfits…so I was happy
2017 Day 7
Logan borrowed this from a friend and I was not a fan (if that’s not obvious, ha)

 

Since we are stuck at home due to COVID-19, we thought it was the perfect time to bring back the “husband picks wife’s clothes for a week” challenge. It made things a little exciting each day, and we had fun with it again. In case you missed us posting about it on Instagram, we wanted to share about it here…and encourage you to try it too.

Since Logan knew I wasn’t thrilled about dressing up every day back in 2017 (when I was actually leaving the house), he decided to mix it up a little bit this time with some casual clothes. Thankfully.

 

The gist of the challenge:
  • Husband picks out wife’s clothes for 7 days
  • Husband must have wife’s best interests at heart (keep it classy, basically)
  • Take a picture of what he picks every day. You will want to remember this!

 

Now for pictures from this past week!

It was unusually chilly this day, so Logan had to pick jeans. I hadn’t worn them in a couple months!
IMG-7999
Repeat shirt from 2017 because it’s one of his fave shirts on me and I don’t wear it often
IMG-8001
A dress that I didn’t want to wear all day…but it’s cute
IMG-8002
Another favorite shirt of Logan’s that I never wear
IMG-8003
This was Sunday, and since we’ve been dressing up every Sunday to watch Mass, he picked a fancy dress. I convinced him to let me change after lunch…
IMG-8004
He picked this for the rest of the day on Divine Mercy Sunday since he knew I wanted to be comfy and wear this shirt specifically
IMG-8005
Yet anther shirt Logan likes that I don’t wear very often
IMG-8006
A repeat from 2017 and I had probably only worn this once or twice since then…but maybe it will become one of my faves now
Logan’s thoughts
  • “You should trust my opinion more”
  • “I like to see you in things other than just t-shirt and shorts”
  • “The variety in clothes helps me focus on you more”
  • “I like you getting dressed for the day…as opposed to just bumming it.”

 

My thoughts
  • I should let Logan pick out my clothes more often
  • Dressing nice (even when I’m not going anywhere) is an act of love for Logan
  • How I dress affects the way I feel
  • I need to just wear things I’m not 100% comfortable with instead of letting them sit in my closet…because they’re not as bad as I think. And it just so happens that Logan loves them!

 

Since I don’t take very many risks when it comes to my wardrobe, it was a great time to trust Logan and let him show me what he enjoys seeing on me. It also made me realize that dressing nicer really does make a difference in my day and how I approach it. I was more motivated to get things done!

So what do you think about letting your husband pick your clothes? Or if you’re a guy, would you want to pick your wife’s clothes for a week? Let us know your thoughts!
