Rain in Style

Hey everyone! Is it still winter?? I think these cold days have taken a bit of my will power...winter just seems to be dragging, and in turn, I drag too.  But, the groundhog said spring is on its way, and he is never wrong... just let me believe that. Anyways, I thought for this week I would talk a little bit about the 70's inspired trend that is coming back...It has always been one of my favorite eras.

If you have stepped into Target recently, you probably noticed there are more and more 70's inspired clothing on the racks. This top, and bag for example, just came from Target. They both had me at hello. I am seeing rainbow graphics, and 'groovy" sayings on a lot of items. The top is out of stock online, here, but check your local Target.

Jumpsuits have been back for a while now too, and they are certainly part of the 70's inspiration. Plunging necklines and wide legs, yes please! I am also seeing a lot of denim jumpsuits...about which I am not exactly sure how I feel. I think i need to try one and see how I feel about it. I always seem to say "nope,  I will never wear that.." but then once I try it, I end up loving it...so the verdict is still out.

Flare leg pants. Keep an eye out for my next column in the March issue of Fredericksburg Parent Magazine, it is devoted to the loves of my life...flare leg jeans. Ok well maybe not THE loves of my life, but like a close sixth. Ya know, after my husband, kids and our kitties. But, seriously, don't be like me and say "nope" until you try them. Be sure to grab the March issue of the magazine and read my styling tips for them.  I think you might find that flares are fun! And, who doesn't like fun? No one.

(these clothing pictures from Thredup, but that skirt y'all...is coming to me soon)

Denim skirts and corduroy ...both beautiful take aways from the 70's, and they are back. Skirts with buttons down the front...similar to this one... will be popping up in stores soon. I have seen several at American Eagle already. Find one that you love and rock it with wedges, booties, flats or heels!

So, who is ready to be groovy with me? Grab your flares, your peace signs, and bring your good vibes...we meet at dawn. :)
