green or blue?

 Green or blue?

This was the question I posed to my friend in a text message.

I was standing in Urban Outfitters, two pairs of denim in my hand: bright blue and bright green. She didn't answer so I texted the husband.

I don't usually ask the husband for fashion advice, not because I don't value his opinion, but because he and I really differ when it comes to clothing.

He asks me if my jacket is too small when I wear my cropped, 3/4 sleeve blazer.

Before we were married, he thought that the difference between a dress and a skirt was that a dress was a "fancy version of a skirt."

I'm not saying this to make fun of him, but just to give some background to why I felt hestitant in asking his opinion.

When I wandered into Urban for their denim sale, I was going to buy bright blue jeans. Simple-- not too daring but fun. But the green ones... they were a little out there... but I wanted to try them.
Like any girl I decided to ask for advice.  And when my friend didn't answer... the husband did and emphatically told me: Green!

I was a little surprised because I expected his response to me more like my brother's who exclaimed "those are bright" when he first saw me wear them.

Maybe I've underestimated my husband's fashion sense, just maybe. 

But then again, the husband's favorite combo is a t-shirt over a long-sleeved t-shirt.
