Summer of Love & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up Party

June 11, 2015
Flared jeans … tie-dye … platforms … can you tell how much I’m loving this 70’s trend?  

Of course with any retro vibe pieces, you need to make the outfit your own.  You don’t want to look like you’ve dressed “70s” for a Halloween party, right?  

I think adding a modern bag and trendy messy up do works here.  And check out this cool deconstructed back detail …

And Dolls, have you noticed how long your legs look in flares?!

Outfit details & Shopping Ideas

Top – thrifted and no label … another fun mystery find at a local thrift store!
As a teacher on summer break, I’m loving having the time to comb through racks of thrift store junk to find a hidden jewel here and there!
No time for that, busy ladies?  Here’s a few fab online finds too …
Flared jeans – KUT (Details Willow Glen)
Platform wedges – Michael Shannon (DSW)
Bag – Kenneth Cole Reaction (Marshalls)
Sunnies – Ralph Lauren 
Earrings – gift

And my wrap beautiful bracelet is from Rocksbox!  Look for my Rocksbox review coming soon!

Some “fashionspiration” from last week’s link up …

Leelo of Beauty by Miss L is rocking this sophisticated jogger pant look.

Loving adorable Jen of Librarian of Life and Style is looking summertime chic in this pretty dress, denim jacket, and cute straw bag.

And the fabulous Tina of Tickled Pink Woman looks stunning in this modern black and white look with pops of red and blue.

Now on a personal note … my kitty Pumpkin has been very sick with serious kidney and intestinal issues.  I would appreciate any prayers and/or good thoughts you could send his way.  He’s the sweetest little guy.

Thanks for your support & please enjoy the link up!

EShakti has been a favorite online shopping site of mine since I first did a review for them last summer.  (Check out my eShakti reviews here, here, and here.)

Graphic Print Crepe Halter Jumpsuit
 Love the cool 70’s vibe and the pretty peachy orange color.  EShakti has a whole category dedicated to jumpsuits now.
Are you a shorts girl? I only wish I had the legs to be one myself. 
If you’ve got it, flaunt it, in adorable shorts like these! 

Chambray Scalloped Denim Shorts

And again eShakti knocks it out of the park by hitting two trends at once here … scallops and chambray!

And two here’s a cool boho maxi dress ….
