Men with a beard

Do you like men with a beard?
I have to admit, I didn’t and it was more because of the rash I was getting from kissing a bearded man than from an aesthetic point of view.
However, these past few years, Steve (pictured here with our linen scarf & Jules plumber bag) has been growing a bear each time we were on holidays so I grew to love it.

While his hairy face may make up for the lack of hair on his skull, my kiwi is ageing beautifully like a good French wine and he is looking sexier by the minute and what was a look reserved solely to our holidays, has now become his new style. 

He recently started a new job with a Danish company and has adopted the Viking look from day one and honestly, each time he comes home looking tanned (from our last family weekend in Wales) and dashing in one of his Italian suits, I can’t help thinking how gorgeous he looks.

A few bearded links for you….

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————Vous aimez les mecs avec des barbes?
Je dois admettre que je n’étais pas vraiment fan au début et c’était surtout parce que cela me filait une irration de la mort sur le visage plutot qu’un choix esthétique.
Mais depuis quelques années, Steve (photographié ici avec notre foulard en lin & le sac en cuir plumberse plait à se laisser pousser la barbe chaque fois que nous sommes en vacances et au fil des années, je m’y suis habituée.

Bien que les poils sur son visage sont maintenant beaucoup plus prolifiques que ce qui lui reste sur le caillou, mon néo-zélandais se bonifit avec l’age comme un bon vin français et devient de plus en plus sexy. Ce look qui nous était uniquement réservé aux vacances est maintenant passé dans le quotidien.

Il y a quelques jours, il a commencé un nouveau travail pour une société Danoise et du coup, à aborder le look Viking dés le premier jour et franchement, chaque soir qu’il rentre du travail, bronzé (suite à notre WE en famille dans le Pays de Galleet canon dans son costume Italien, je trouve qu’il est beau comme un camion.

  1. Yeah been there done that .. All men wear beards, including the father of my kids when I first met him… I kinda liked it then but think it looks better on young guys , well trimmed and everything as on older men… Ofcourse your kiwi is still young , you wrote very loveble a out him I like that , bonne weekend x

    i will post the magazines asap to you

  2. I agree with you Desiree…I think there is an age limit, it’s like leopard print on women…looks great on younger women but pass a certain age, it becomes tricky to wear it well
