From the 70s

My personality is pretty free spirited but I went full fledged into the roll with this outfit. As I’ve been creating this blog, I’ve come to realize how much I’m currently loving seventies inspired clothing (I created a new category for all the 70s inspired looks I’ve posted). So, I let my inner hippie loose. I rocked the headband, skipped the footwear, and frolicked in the garden. Although, I must admit, I wasn’t committed enough to go shoeless to work so I added a pair of sandals. That decision was probably for the best.

I’ve been a bit obsessed with palazzo pants lately… They’re refreshing compared to the jeggings I’m used to squeezing myself into! I got this pair at Francesca’s (also a recent love) but I did have a bit of trouble styling them at first. I’m the type of person who likes to stick to loose on top, tight on bottom or vice versa. But with these super wide leg pants, I felt like a fitted top was almost too off-setting. So, I picked a looser one, topped it with some gold accessories to go with the medallion print and grabbed a coral bag for some summer color. Hope you like the look! Follow for more!

P.S. I admit… the pants are a bit long on me. This happens a lot being 5’2″. But does no one else tell themselves, “No need to hem it. Now I can wear it with flats OR heels!” Just me?

So, I went to the Jay-Z and Beyonce concert last night and it was amazing. Beyonce was flawless. Her vocals, her dance moves, her daring costume choices. And Jay-Z was fun to attempt to rap along with. I wanted to wear something bold but lightweight (it was a HOT day/night). I’ve been obsessed with jumpsuits lately so I decided to wear this printed one from TJ Maxx. It’s super lightweight and comfortable which definitely helped me survive the 5 hours we were stuck in traffic on the way there. Instead of going neutral with the accessories I picked out a different color from the jumpsuit for my earrings, nails and wedges and I’m happy with the way it looked! The bag was neutral but it was perfect because I was able to hold it as a clutch during the day and when I got to the concert instead of putting it on the ground I was able to pull out the strap and throw it over my shoulder! It was also small enough that they didn’t make me wait in the bag check line which was nice because I arrived JUST in time to see the start of the show. Anyway, I hope you like the look! Follow for more!

P.S. Ladies, tell him, “I woke up like this…FLAWLESS” ❤

This 70s inspired look is a fun alternative to your typical denim-shorts-and-a-tank outfit on a hot summer day. I’m obsessed with these floral shorts which I got a Forever 21 for about $15. They are so comfortable and light weight that they feel like pj shorts. I went on a date with my boyfriend in this look but it could also work going out to lunch with the girls or to an outdoor shopping mall! It’s casual but the patterns and shapes created are super trendy. If you aren’t into mixing patterns, a plain black cropped tee would be less bold but still really cute!

PS – I don’t know how to model.. hehe
