Fender/Door Alignment

I returned from a month away from home (during which my wife drove my truck) to find that my driver's door and front fender aren't lined up anymore. The fender sticks out farther that the door, or the door is pushed in more than the fender. There are no impact marks on either. My wife (who WOULD be honest about it) doesn't know what happened. It's pretty windy here most of the time...my best guess is that the wind caught the door once it was opened and slammed it all the way open thereby bending or knocking something out of alignment. My wife did leave the truck with a local window tinting shop for a bit, so there is no telling what happened while it was in their custody.

Anywho, I've been lurking on the forum for a while reading and learning what I can about maintenance and mods. I figured I toss this up and see if anyone has advice or guidance. It's purely cosmetic and doesn't affect the operation of the door, so I doubt I will drop the cash to have a body shop fix it. However, I'm always looking to learn so if it is something that a novice could figure out, I'm all ears.

Thanks for your time.
