Another weekend has come and gone, and with each passing weekend Fall is getting closer and closer….no! Every Monday I feel like I have this conversation with you all, or myself, on my severe anxiety on summer leaving us. Maybe it’s me being a Chicagoan, but I know what lies ahead and I’m not ready for it – we’ve already starting planning our 2016 vacations so that there is a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
Speaking of Fall, today I’m sharing a fun 70’s inspired look with this Nasty Gal lace up blouse. 70’s inspired fashion was something we saw at New York Fashion week back in the Spring – we saw flares, fringe, the rebirth of the color currant. I dig the whole vibe and couldn’t wait to put together a few pieces to show homage to the 70’s in a mild way.
Pairing this lace up blouse with the perfect flares was a great way to gently ease into the trend without saying “Hi, I’m here”. A great way to test out a new trend is to incorporate a few pieces here and there to see if it’s something you want to incorporate into your personal style. I say you should always try something at least once to say you did – my favorite way of testing out a trend is to wear it while running errands. Try something new while heading to Target, the grocery store, etc – it’s the easiest way to test drive something without the insecurities.
Have a happy Monday all! Don’t forget to purchase your copy of the September issue of Redbook – check out the full post here.
