Honoring Richard

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Yes, there is life after divorce. And a very nice life it is. After being married to the wrong person for 14 years, I feel so lucky to have found my knight in shining armor (or rather in Ecoths Clothing) the second time around.  
So when Aventura Clothing asked us both to be in a Father's Day blog, I thought it would be the perfect time to honor my amazing, silly,  crazy, brilliant and very handsome husband Richard.
Richard is a green energy attorney (solar, wind and all that good stuff), yet he's anything but serious. His jokes are ridiculous --off the wall really--but he makes me laugh.
We can laugh at just about anything, even when we both injured our hands. 
Richard is more even-keeled than I am. Not much rattles him. I on the other hand, am a constant basket case-- a self-professed worry wart.  We even each other out.
Richard is not shy. He jumps at the opportunity to guest on my blog and never passes up a good party. The only problem is that he likes to hang out with my friends.  No Richard, you are not one of the girls! 
Richard loves to get new clothes...as a matter of fact, he's become quite the clothes horse! He has way too much fun modeling and showing me how to pose. Another Zoolander in the making.
Richard is an incredible person and an amazing father and step-father to my children. He's kind and compassionate and goes out of his way to help others.  He also makes the bed, does the laundry and empties the dishwasher--he's a keeper!
Richard is wearing Ecoths Clothing a fabulous line for men.
He tells me that their clothes are cut just right and incredibly comfortable. I like the way he looks in them too (handsome devil!).

I am also wearing Aventura. I love this line for so many reasons, but mainly because the owners are so kind and giving. 
They contribute to Uncommon Threads on a regular basis-- our clients are so happy to receive such beautiful clohtes!
Here I'm wearing their super comfy Hartwell Hoodie, which has fabulous detailing. This hoodie also comes in blue and coral!
My necklace is from Bittersweet Designs--LOVE their jewelry!
 This grey slouchy bag is old but LOVE this one in dark grey with snakeskin trim--under $80 too! Find it HERE
Wearing comfy and super stretchy AG high-rise skinnies 
Another blog appearance for these Readers.com Legacy aviator bifocals (just $18.95!). They're really fabulous!
White leather sneakers go with just about everything. Similar HERE and HERE.
So happy Father's Day to the goofiest...
most lovable...
 and simply wonderful man on the planet.
Yes I know how lucky I am.
Love you "Harold" XO Maude (inside joke).

Hair (for both of us!) by the incredible Robert Jason Salon
