Thank you to Lord + Taylor and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.
It’s not every day that I get to sit down and hang out with JUST my dad. I am one of 5 girls, and now there are 12 grandkids in the mix so one-on-one time is pretty much a foreign concept. While there is something to be said for traveling in a pack, it’s also super important to connect on an individual level. When Lord + Taylor reached out asking me to take a look at their Father’s Day selection, I new exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to include my dad in some way.
The concept of my job as a blogger is completely foreign to my dad, but over the years he has come to understand what I do and sees the value in inspiring people with accessible fashion and styling tips. In an effort to fully understand what I do, he has even made some of his own “try on videos” that I couldn’t NOT share on my Instagram story. It’s not every day that a 72-year old perfects the “half tuck”. And don’t worry, he couldn’t resist giving a full video review of his look for this post (see it here on my story) ♥️😂. Who knew that after years of being my soccer coach we would come to eventually come to bond over – clothes?!
My Dad Wearing:
My dad spent most of his career as a business man – accountant, CFO, and now does “consulting on the side” – or if you ask my mom, it’s all day long. But for me it’s refreshing to see him unleash his creative (and humorous) side and that is certainly to be celebrated. In order to give my dad the full blogger experience fully fitted with a professional photoshoot, I also asked him to scour the Lord + Taylor website and pick out what he thinks are the best gifts for dads. Bonus, it’s Friends & Family time so you can save up to 30% on almost everything and 15% on beauty with code FRIENDS.
Here are his top Father’s Day picks…..
And who knows, maybe after his “consulting on the side” gig is over, he might consider blogging. After all, he already knows how to “swipe up”.
