1970s inspired denim...

A couple of weeks ago I went to visit my friend Cindy and helped her to pick up some pieces for a 1970s fancy dress party. I wore this outfit to work on the following Monday and obviously I had been influenced by the time we spent wandering around the charity shops in Portishead. This outfit is almost as 1970s as you can get! Swap the skinny jeans for flares and you could be forgiven for thinking you had stepped back in time... You can tell it is starting to get darker in the mornings as these photos came out pretty dark, I think it will be back inside for photos soon :( 

Cardigan: Gap via Matilda, top: Primark, camisole: Tesco, jeans: Topshop, shoes: New Look
This top was a charity shop bargain from Primark which I really love, the print reminds me of terracotta tiles and the colours are deliciously seventies - what more could you ask for in a top?! My beloved mustard cardigan provides the perfect layer to protect against the creeping Autumnal chill. I am really looking forward to wearing cosy knits and ankle boots again but the colder weather has been a bit of a shock in the mornings, I need to get used to it again!


The grass by our flats hasn't been cut for weeks and with all the weeds wild flowers it is almost looking like a stereotypical blogger meadow. Now, to qualify as a 'proper blogger' I just need a lace maxi dress and a flower crown to take pictures with ;) In all seriousness though, it is very pretty and much nicer than boring old grass, here's hoping they don't cut it for a while longer... You can't really see them thanks to the long grass but these tan loafers are a long standing resident in the Frills 'n' Spills wardrobe and have been my shoe of choice recently - New Look really are brilliant for simple comfortable flats. 


Does the 70s ever inspire your outfits?

I love the mustard cardi! Such a lovely colour. I need more of that in my wardrobe. Bet it wouldn't suit me as much as it does you! Happy weekend girl!

I must admit I never really look to the 70s for inspiration, but mustard is one of my fave colours! <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

I love this blouse. I love mustard, I'm not sure if it suits me in clothes but it looks amazing against your hair colour. x

Love this 70's inspired outfit. The blouse is so pretty, and the glasses look amazing.

Can't say I'm a big 70s fan. I love 60s style but the shapes don't flatter me at all. Loving all the punk trends at the moment and I suppose that's late 70s x

I love when that happens, whenever I watch some of my favourite movies the night before or listen to certain music whilst getting dressed, I always end up subconsciously picking a very 'inspired by' outfit! This is definitely 70's, but in the best possible way, it really suits you!

I adore this 70s look - one of my favourite shoes is that 70s show, such a funny show. Totally miss it.

I love mustard - it's such a great colour for Autumn but I have to wear it on my bottom half as it doesn't really suit my skin tone - cest la vie!
