Guest Post: Mr. Kimmie

Hey guys! I've got a very special guest post for you today. I was thinking about what kind of content to publish on the blog while I was gone, and jokingly asked my husband if he wanted to do a guest post, and he said yes! :) But... only if I did the Boba Fett head on him. -Kimmie

Hi, it’s Mr. Kimmie filling in for the day. This is my second appearance on Blue Paper Lanterns. You might remember my first appearance here.

When I’m not busy searching the galaxy for Han Solo or collecting bounties, I enjoy looking sharp while doing it on a budget (just like my wife!). So what do I know about fashion you might be asking yourself? Nothing, really. But how many husbands have done guest posts on their wives blogs? Really, it’s never been done! Adventurous. Reckless. Freak-of-nature. That’s me!

Having a style blogger wife has pushed me to pay closer attention to what I wear and how I look. Besides, no guy wants to hear people ask, “Uh…why is HE with her?!”


Being in my early 30’s, I have to say it’s been a little difficult transitioning my style from my 20’s. There has been a time or two (or five) that Kimmie has told me, “Yeah, you’re too old for that” or “You’re wearing THAT? With THAT? Ohhhhkaaay.” So my goal is to aim somewhere between the guys on the Jersey Shore and my dad (who buys his clothes at Costco).

Dang, posing is hard! How do you do it without looking like Derek Zoolander?


Here goes nothing…

Shirt: Target
Shorts: Quicksilver
Shoes: Sanuk
Watch: G-Shock

  1. I think Mr. Kimmie did a wonderful job. Nate and I already talked about him doing at least one guest post when I take a "maternity/nothing currently fits leave" after the baby. Maybe I could have a style blogger husbands week. Think Mr. Kimmie would be up to another run?!?

  5. Kimmie (and Mr. Kimmie!), I LOVED today's post!  You have an awesome hubby.  His writing style is too funny, and his dressing style is ADORABLE (in a very manly way).  I would say I'm jealous, but I have a pretty good hunk of man meat, myself.  But I'm so happy to see that you married well, Kimmie!  (also loving the Boba Fet overlay...very clever).

  11. Love this post! I went to a rooftop BBQ birthday party recently and there was a couple in attendance who were a complete mismatch: he was wearing an oversized Tshirt with a cartoon character on it, baggy khaki cargo shorts, white socks, and white sneakers, and she was in a little black dress, stilettos, and a Chanel bag. It took me the entire BBQ to realize they were married!

    Nice outfit, by the way! Well done, Mr. Kimmie!

  13. Aaaaaahh I am FREAKING OUT over here I love this post so much!!  Seriously, your man guest posting for you like this is evidence of the love story I can only dream of. Plus I love his shirt and can totally relate to the growing up in your 30s style-changing thing.  HAHAHAHA oh man, the Zoolander photos are too much.

  22. hahah awesome post Mr. Kimmie!  Now I'm wondering what kind of face my bf would have if he did a guest post on my blog...something to ponder. 

    Also, for anyone that has a husband that won't part with a ratty old t-shirt, here's what I did:

  23. OMG, can we have more guest posts from the hubby? He seems super cool - the Star Wars [?!] head sort of says it all. Does he dress himself Kim? Are you sure you don't dress him?! He looks super pulled together!
