Inspired by 1970s style...

There are a few decades that I never thought that I would look to for fashion inspiration and I would have said that the 1970s were up there on that list but looking back, I have more than a few pieces that are looking bang on trend at the moment! Ideally these would have been flared jeans rather than skinnies but I sadly got rid of my bargain Boden flares in one of my clearouts so these skinny jeans will just have to do! I seem to gravitate to this faux fur gilet every Friday, it is just so darned cosy and perfect for making even the most casual outfit look dressed up. With my fringe, I felt very 1970s groupie but that's no bad thing right?!

Gilet: via charity shop, top: Vero Moda via charity shop, jeans: Warehouse, necklace: Accessorize, shoes: Betty London c/o Spartoo

Feeling sassy!
My fringe has got so long recently and I have to admit, although I really love it, I don't think I will get it cut back in next time I go to the hairdressers. I think a side fringe is more my style, I miss my forehead! ;) This Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick in Pink Pong 06 is one of my favourite lipsticks and is a gorgeous hot pink shade that lifts this outfit perfectly.


I stupidly wore (small) heels when I was in London this week and my poor feet were ripped to shreds so I have been wearing these ridiculously comfy Betty London flats whilst they heal up. Usually ballet flats gape around your feet but this pair fit my feet like a glove and I just wish they came in more colours as they are definitely the comfiest shoes in my wardrobe!

Oh I know what you mean about the fringe! I had a fringe for maybe 5/6 years and then about 2 years ago I just grew it out into a side fringe and have never looked back. It's just much less maintenance!

I struggle so much with 70s styles, so I'm probably going to buck this trend. Really love your hair at the moment. And that fluffy gilet looks so cosy!

I'm really into the 70's vibe right now and loving this look. You should invest in a fedora hat it would work perfectly with this look and so many of your cute dresses too! Great 70's style!
