Savoir Flare!

February 22, 2015

So excited about the return of flare jeans and that 70’s vibe!  

Here’s my boho look that I wore to Calypso St Barth event (details about that event here.) 

Love the way this outfit turned out. Though looking at the pics, I do wish the jeans were an inch longer, right?



Outfit details:



Crochet wrap – Roxy
Jeans – Gap Long & Lean (old – no longer available)
Wrap top – Merona (Target)
Brown leather clogs – Zigi Soho (DSW)
Bag – Oryany (TJ Maxx)
Jewelry – Lucky Brand necklace, Zara necklace, bracelets from Tilly’s and J. Crew, earrings from Tilly’s.

So Dolls, are you excited about the return of flares or are you recoiling in horror?  Comment below and let me know!

    Great minds and all that…well, kind of. I just wrote a post about jeans as well. And my fear of the return of flares. They look great on you!

      I know, right? Why did they ever get rid of their Long and Lean line? Thanks, Cathy! OXOX

    I think the jeans are a good length. As a matter of fact, the hippies wore them to the ground. You look perfect Cali-boho πŸ™‚

    You look fabulous! For me the 70's is a reference point and always in. You rock those flares and everything else so perfectly. It's all about interpretation and you got it just right. I can't do the flares so it's the skirts and knee boots so far for me.

    • Reply dawnlucy February 23, 2015 at 11:35 pm

      Oh I love skirts with knee boots! Great look too! OXOX

    Definitely NOT afraid – I'll be honest, I've bucked the trend and worn flares all along – and skinnies and straight leg and even wide leg occasionally – it's all about the fit! I feel ya on the needing an extra inch of length though, but it's not as noticeable as you think. Great outfit, love that cardi!

    I have mixed feelings about the flare. I love how they elongate your legs and I think they look fabulous on you! I'm going to have to keep searching for the perfect pair!

    I love this look! I think with your long legs, and the cascading of this beautiful neutral cardigan, the look is great! I have a pair of very soft SFAM jeans that I want to wear that are flares, but since I cant wear high heels, I think flares look best with a heel or high heels, love the brown boots and the length is just right! Have a great day!

    I love the boho vibe of this outfit. I love flare jeans since they really flatter most and makes my shorter legs look a whole lot longer. Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week.
