Celebrating the 70’s in honor of my birthday!

Since I just celebrated a birthday I thought it would be perfect for me to write about a hot trend for the Spring-

70’s Style!!!

Yes, I was born in the 70’s and I love looking at pictures of my mom and my aunts during this time-they were so HIP and glamorous! Always sporting a great tan with big gold hoops, hair parted down the middle with big sexy loose curls.  I wish I had some pictures of them I could add (hint hint Mom).
I’ll have to get back to that.


Anyway, 70’s style is hot for the spring.
Wide leg trousers, floppy hats, peasant tops, chunky wooden wedge sandals, maxi dresses, jumpsuits and loose and bouncy hair.
(I’ve needed big hair to come back in style for a while now)

Jennifer Lopez looks great in her floppy hat and her fab scarf, I might have to try this since I have many many many BAD HAIR DAYS! 

I love Nicole Ritchie’s style. Her hair looks great parted down the middle with loose waves. Check out her new jewelry line -House of Harlow.



To pull off this look make sure you don’t do it from head to toe. Add a piece here and there. Wide leg jeans with a simple white top. A great black jumpsuit with a big pair of gold hoops. Big chunky wedges with a cool maxi dress. And if you are really brave you can wear a pair of hot pants!!

Don’t throw away your skinny jeans, just try something new! High waisted wide legged trousers with a tall wedge will actually elongate you if you are petite. Trust me I know!!!

I think this belt would be perfect for my 70’s look, I might need to learn to crochet!



 When your getting dressed add a little inspiration by downloading songs by Diana Ross, Roberta Flack and Sly and the Family Stone! You’ll be ready for a night on the town…..

CHEAP CHICk

Yup, it’s true-today I was a cheap chic! And it was so fun…
I went to Old Navy to load up on Spring Break gear for my children and went a little overboard! 
All of these pieces came from OLD NAVY
Today I'm a CHEAP CHICK!
I fell in love with these white linen flare pants, nautical tee and great cocktail ring and who doesn’t want a YELLOW POLKA DOT bikini???
The gauzy linen shorts will work great for my constant trips to the ball park along with these comfortable flip flops. My girlfriends always crack up at my definition of BALLPARK SHOES!!! 
(They are not always the most practical but hey, they are cute! And a short girl needs some height!!)

I know places like Target and Old Navy are always hit or miss but if you add some great designer pieces each season you can always fill in with VERY affordable tanks etc. and NO ONE will ever know the difference!
(I always buy my super trendy pieces cheap)
XO, fashionably chick
