Case in point

Ok - Justin Timberlake in this month's GQ? Awesome. See how he totally rocks these pants? Don't worry - I'm pretty sure that Ryan can't rock white pants the way JT does (and frankly if he did it in Miami, well I'm not sure what kind of audience would be enjoying it), but the style is what I'm looking at here.

Truthfully, if you strip away all the layers of hype, I think Justin Timberlake is a really average looking guy, but he has an awesome knack for fashion and a sweet voice that makes him such a hot commodity.

And while I'm at it, let me just give a shout out to GQ, possibly the only magazine I enjoy reading more than US Weekly (ok, and that I don't come away feeling dumber than I was before I read it). Their articles are so witty and captivating, that I can spend three elliptical sessions reading one issue cover to cover. But they're not for the faint-hearted and you have to be willing to skim past the occasional swear word.

This month, they had the 10 best-dressed men. I will say that this guy on the left (Alexi Lubomirski, a photographer) caught my eye. This is a look I love and actually think could work on Ryan. (Ok, not sure we'd go for the vest. Or the chest hair. If he had it.) But, it's simple, yet more fitted and a little more sophisticated and looks like it could work on a tall, lean build.

But whatever. It's not like we can really even try to be fashionable really for another 6 years or so until we actually make a salary that isn't just slightly above the poverty line.

What?! I thought we were going to be above the poverty line in residency! You mean I have to wait longer?!

I'd like to see Ryan sporting a fedora. :)

What ? Ryan doesn't have the chest hair for this look? He should borrow Casey's!

Yeah this guy has on great jeans! Way more normal.
I have been struggling lately with were I fit in fashion. I look really young - but Im not and I dont want to dress too mom like but I dont want to look like a teen mom either. Then I feel all the sophisticated looks are pricey. cant wait to get into my capri pants! What did I do before capris?
