A day out in houndstooth

A lot of my girl friends complain that their men don't talk about their feelings or express them while some of those men (also my friends) explain that, it is because they are more rational and less emotional than women. Well.. I guess that's why men are calm and self controlled during emotional outbursts (Women, shoot me right in the head!) 

I believe that men have their own way of expressing that they care. Less with the words and more with warm gestures. He may not always tell you that you look beautiful because he believes that you can see it when he looks you in the eye, he secretly keeps track of all your needs and tries his best to fulfill them (one at a time), he holds your hands while crossing the road, he can't stand another man staring at you, he takes your opinion before taking important decisions, he gets upset when you cry because it hurts him and he expects you to understand him even when he doesn't utter words. 

                                                                           .......and then there are exceptions!:) 

Over to the outfit now.

Houndstooth, the traditional check pattern which dates all the way back to the 1800s, comes in various fresh variations. The designs are all over the runways/streets and stores that never seem to go out of trend. The print, as simple as it looks can be worn either with accessories in black or white colors for a sophisticated look or bright colored accessories to break the pattern and add fun to the outfit. The latter is what I preferred while attending a toddler's birthday party.

 I'm submitting this outfit for the InFB Remix : Black & White
