Hellllooooooo Monday! I’m not sure if I’m happy to see you or not. My alarm this morning certainly didn’t make me the happiest person, but I pulled my ass out of bead and headed straight to Soul Cycle for a 6am class. That is the definition of rise and grind friends!
Today’s look has me all sorts of giddy! I love it when a trend is cyclical and the 70s are back my friends! Spring suedes, fringe, bell bottom pantsand psychedelic prints are taking street style by storm and I couldn’t be more excited! The 70s were a fun and relaxing time, so I’ve heard, and the fashion during that time emulated just that – this is my homage to 70s style fashion.
I love the way a good bell bottom can make your legs look two feet longer than they actually are. Whats better than that? A high-wasited bell that makes your legs look three feet longer. I bought these jeans ages ago, when bells were huge in the mid-2000’s. I think they were the first pair of designer denim pants I purchased on my broke college budget – even then I had my priorities straight. I’ve been looking for ways to style this gorgeous lace top (since it fits more like a crop top) and a high-waisted pant was the way to go! I added a nude came underneath for some protection and I was good to – an easy fix! Since the temps here in Chicago are still a little brisk, this Ann Taylor faux fur coat was the perfect layering piece to my 70s look! It’s currently sold out, but I found one just like it here.
Finally, these shoes. I’ve been obsessed with them since the fall and when I wore them in Redbook (see here). They completely embody the 70s and are the perfect transition shoe this season – whoever said you can’t wear suede in the spring is sooooooo wrong. What’s your favorite trend this spring?
