The Proposal: Outfit Breakdown

The Proposal: Outfit Breakdown

A couple of weeks ago, I went to lake Tahoe to go snowboarding and to propose to my girlfriend. I thought it would be a fun post to show a few pictures from the surprise engagement and also to break down the outfit that I wore, Famous Outfits style.


The Proposal Story

I really wanted to make it a surprise for my girlfriend Melissa, so I planned everything out and was as secretive as possible. She thought it would just be a snowboarding trip for her birthday but she had no idea that I was planning to propose to her. There were a few moments where I thought I must have given it away, but I guess she was oblivious to it all. All the hard work and planning to make this engagement special was well worth it. She said YES!

The Proposal at Emerald Bay

I proposed to her at this place called Emerald Bay, which is known to be one of the most photographed places in the world. The engagement was perfect and she was really pleased with how I pulled it off.


The Outfit Breakdown

The day before I was supposed to leave for Tahoe, I was unsure of what to wear. I hired a photographer to capture the moment and I wanted to look good for the pictures. I went to the Great Mall and bought a few items to wear for the day of the proposal. Since we were in the mountains, I wanted to go for a more rugged look, hence the flannel, but I also wanted to dress it up a bit. That’s why I wore the cardigan.
