Everyday Seventies Style

I’m feeling the seventies lately. They are calling me. I know the 90’s are in, but I’m still stuck in the 70’s. When I ask my husband how I look he keeps saying things like- "You look like you stepped out of that seventies show. Again." He exaggerates a little, but was the seventies such a bad thing? I don’t think so. I do think though, that unless you are going to take a giant 100% leap into vintage clothing and rock everything from your shoes to your underwear, then you should probably find a good balance of new vs. vintage. I think everyone’s balance is a different amount, and you have to take in account things like hair, make-up, shoes, accessories, and the clothes. I always make sure to mix some obviously new items into the mix. I’ll wear clothing running the gamut from 1930-1979. I don’t do the 80’s and 90’s. I know it’s in again, and everybody’s rocking the day-glo and the parachute pants but I just can’t do it. I think if you lived in the times people wore those things (or like me, you had to wear acid washed jeans in the 2000’s because you finally fit your sisters hand-me-downs and your mom wouldn’t buy you new jeans, so now your scarred for life) then you have a small guard up against clothing that looks too much like the decade. Ya know what I mean? Like I will never ever ever rock one of those Poncho cape things that were so in like 10 years ago. I’m sure they will come back in style someday, and I will look at them and say "why are people wearing those again?" Certain things should just stay gone. Remember those egg carton shirts that could stretch from infant size to 3XL? Why? Why did we wear those?

Anyways, here’s my outfit from the day. Definitely seventies inspired, and I love it! These jeans are my favorite pants I own, but I can’t usually wear them because I have to wear really high heels to make them clear the ground!
