This may come as a shock to those who know me, but I’m not wearing black OR white OR grey in this post. That’s the thing I love about fashion, though. Fashion pushes you outside of out of your comfort zone on occasion. It allows you to get lost in this idea of finding the perfect outfit for any occasion, style, or decade. It gives you the chance to discover something that you thought would look horrid on you is actually your new favorite wardrobe item. And, in this case, it showed me why Andrea’s favorite decade is the 70s. I mean, bell sleeves and super comfy platform shoes, I’m in!
I have to give a shout out to Ashley McClellan Houston (Instagram: nashvillewifestyles) for the initial inspiration. She shared a version of this top in her Instagram stories awhile back, and I had to have it. When she shared it, the colors of the top felt more relevant for fall, but because I loved it’s 70s vibe I kept searching for another color. Next, I found this version, which is clearly amazing, but I still wanted something more springy! So, the version with pinks, blues, whites, and pale yellows it was! And, I couldn’t be happier with my non-black/white/ grey choice! And if you love the style, but are more of a solid color person, check the top out here. (Side note: I try not to own the same top in different colors, but the emerald green is calling my name!!)
As for the shorts, I absolutely swear by One Teaspoon. With shorts, I have a very distinct, rocker kind of style, and One Teaspoon fits that. They are a little on the pricey side for shorts, but I found that once you find you style and size, you can hit up Poshmark for some great deals. My personal favorite by One Teaspoon is their Bandit, and my tip here is that if you get the low rise fit, get your regular size and if you get the highwaisted size down one or two. For me, this applies to most jean brands when comparing a lower rise to a highwaisted denim, but it holds true for One Teaspoon so I thought I’d share.
We hope you loved our 70s inspired posts this month, and if you ever have a decade, style, or trend you want us to take a stab at, just post a comment! We are up for anything!
