Grumpy Hungry Men

Blazer: Zara, Top: Zara, Pants: Vero Moda, Necklace: H&M (Gifted) Shoes: Thrifted, Bag: Vera Wang, Bracelets: Thrifted.


After work on Monday, Steven and I went to do some shopping and catch dinner and a movie in downtown Frankfurt. As soon as we met up I could tell Steven was pretty irritated but I had no idea why. 

Me: "Honey, something bothering you?"

Him: "No, why?" 

Me: "I'm getting the vibe that you're really annoyed." 

Him: "Huh, I guess I am. But not for any particular reason." 

Me: "Are you hungry?"

Him: -sheepish smile- "yeah, that's probably why."

People always joke that women get so emotional and irritable when they're hungry, but I think men are ten times worse! We needed to buy Steven a new pair of shoes and over the course of searching for them his mood grew worse and worse. I felt positively guilty making Steven take my photos when the restaurant we were planning on eating at was only a city block away, so we rushed through them. He was definitely distracted because 90% of the photos he took were out of focus. Ha! I love him. 

We made it to the restaurant (this one here) and the minute the food arrived his mood did a complete 360 and he was back to his smiling, happy self. Ladies, the moral of the story is this: If your man is grumpy, feed him. The end.

Haha love this!

Mike and I call this "hangry" or "hanger" - Hungry + anger. Looking at each other and saying, "OK, I'm hangry, which is why I'm grumpy. Sorry." Is the best way ever to avoid a fight, and easily fix a bad mood.

Lindsay said...

What a great outfit! I've been thinking of investing in a white blazer. I love how you styled yours!

Niken said...

couldn't be more agree with you. food is the best mood swinger for man. feed him, then he's a happy man again

Allie said...

I 100% agree with you, I get made fun of all the time for getting hangry, but my husband is totally guilty of it too! I imagine it's similar to having a child, if they seem cranky for no reason you have to go through a mental checklist of their needs to see if one is not being met :). Love the outfit, that blazer is so cute!

Alex Butts said...

Love that outfit - I need a white blazer!

And I think it all related to the way to a man's heart is through his stomach :)

Jessi said...

You look so chic! Love the necklace on that pretty top and of cours the blazer! Such a great look. I agree that guys are grumpier than us when they're hungry. My Hubby does this all the time! (when he's tired too)

Preach sister! My boyfriend nearly bit my head off the other day, for no reason (well, we (read I) were shopping for a dress for a wedding). And then we sat down and had some brunch.

All of a sudden grumpy bear was no more. Men and their emotions. If they're not horny, they're hungry.

Love your outfit! You look super!

Ashley said...

I am the same way!!! I need my food!!!

I really love these pants...the fit is so perfect on you!

jackie said...

Haha so funny that you knew exactly what his problem was. Oh marriage :) and I love those shoes! So lucky they were thrifted!

Elise Nicole said...

Betsy said...

preethi said...

Um, I cannot agree more - when my husband is distracted and hungry, he has zero ability to actually focus with outfit pictures. :) Also, I LOVE this outfit - the blazer/necklace/heels with the jeans and tee are perfect! I'm a new follower!

lace, etc.

My husband definitely gets grumpy when he's hungry! It's always a good idea to keep him well fed.:) I love your necklace - and the colors of your outfit are fab.

Jessie @ Dream and Differ said...

Being hungry always makes me crabby, too! You look darling~ I love that necklace!

Elle said...

Love your outfit. So funny I had the same experience on Monday. We were supposed to go to a BBQ that evening but as soon as my hubby came in the door he headed for the fridge. I kept telling him that we would eat soon at the BBQ. Well I almost got my face ripped off so I agree, moral of story, feed them when they are hungry, don't wait for the BBQ or shoes or pictures or anything else. Then you can go back to the sweet lovable hubby and do those things later.

Mimi Finerty said...

Gorgeous outfit! I love the turquoise top with the black skinny jeans, and the highlight of the necklace, all with the softness of the white blazer.

Kate Greer said...

Super cute look and great accessorizing!

That is too funny! My husband is the same way. I always have to bring snacks because if he gets hungry he is the biggest grump on the planet and makes my life miserable. It is just not worth it. I always make him eat something before we leave the house and then the minute he says he's hungry we grab him a bit to eat before the hunger monster appears! It's like he's 5 years old or something...

Shannon said...

You look amazing! Classic and chic.

Awesome, classic outfit!

Carrie Teal said...

You looks great and your statement necklace keeps catching my eye. Men definitely get grouchy when they are hungry- at least my husband does also:)

Joanna said...

found you through WIWW. love the outfit!

Aspiring Kennedy said...

Men are just as hangry if not more so than women. Add on going shopping on top of that and it would be enough to push anyone over the edge. Glad he was a good sport about it though!

Lindsay said...

I love this outfit. The mint with the black is just perfection. Love that necklace too. Popping over from WIWW.

Sara Louise said...

I've found that the more food I stuff into my husband's mouth, the happier he is :)

Cassidy said...

Men need their food! haha. Your outfit is so gorgeous! Love the necklace.

Nikki said...

Super cute look! And I know what you mean about men and food! And about rushing the photo process. Your blog is so cute! :)

Ash Louise said...

Haha. I loved this. I love how you knew!
And your outfit is super adorable. I love all the pieces separately and definitely together... you did a great job at pairing this ;)

Kristin said...

Oh I get really hangry sometimes. It's really inexcusable! I love this outfit on you!

Katherine / Of Corgis and Cocktails said...

LOVE that necklace!

Rachel said...

Oh my goodness, it's so true! Hungry men are grumpy! If I notice my husband is getting annoyed about random stuff or saying 'no' to suggestions of things I know he likes to do, that's when I know, he's hungry! Why don't they just eat before getting to that point, I know I would!

Nicole Marie said...

how cute are you! and love your necklace!

Mary Lindsey said...

I love your necklace! This outfit is so cute. :)
