That ’70s Outfit

Fall is back and so are the 1970s! I’m still hopelessly devoted to the ’80s but I can give that up for one 1970s themed outfit post.

1970s Inspired Outfit: Floral blouse, white lace vest, high waisted dark wash denim, high heels, mini brown backpack

I don’t normally succumb to trends but this one was stupidly simple to thrift so I decided to go for it. If you don’t already, I would highly recommend thrifting for vintage trends like this one. It’s easier on your wallet in case you hate it, plus you can get something authentic from the decade!

My entire outfit was built around this sweet floral top. It’s one of those pieces that’s a really awkward length so I called it a shirt and tucked it into jeans.. but not just any jeans.

These high waisted beauties were a diamond in the rough at the thrift store. Even the cashier was impressed with my skills. Hey, I wasn’t kidding when I said I am a thrift store legend.

After I added this slouchy hat, boho vest, and backpack, I couldn’t help but feel like a student back in the day who might have gone to school with my mom. High heels aren’t practical for walking around a campus but we can’t have it all, right?

This is not the last time you’ll see me rockin’ a 70s outfit because I’ve already snapped some more looks where the decade is evident. Don’t worry, the ’80s will be back on my blog before you know it!

  • You are just. Omg. I can’t even begin to start!! I think I will be forever in love with the 70s, even though I don’t show 70s style on my blog. I think what drifted me away from it was the CRAZY amount of fake hipster boho crap you see all over pinterest. To me, this feels like 100% 70s style. WAY TO GO GIRL – THE 70s IS PROUD >>>

    • This comment means so much to me since YOU know the 70s and can probably spot a fake from a mile away. lol Thank you so so much! 🙂

    That bag is so wonderful and I love your deviation from your normal style into the 70’s. The 70’s is so hard for me to cope with personally! It was a big trend when I was in middle school and I wore the crap out of those paisley prints and bell sleeves. I feel like a 12 year old even trying to consider the 70’s trend! Oh, well. I guess the 90’s will forever and always be my decade of choice.

    • I definitely remember the last time the 70s came around in the late 90s (thanks to That 70s Show!). I just remember being obsessed with bell bottom jeans and now I wouldn’t touch them with a 10 foot pole!

      Just keep on wearing you!

  • So gorgeous! I love the style so much 😀
