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!

You're definitely rocking the 70s! I love your chic spin on the decade. The jeans are fantastic!

First, my thoughts and prayers for Pumpkin. I am a kitty lover and know how heart wrenching it is when my dear Tabitha is ill. You are rocking this fab look, Dawn! I adore the 70's! I graduated from high school in 1980, so love, love, love it. Thank you for featuring me alongside these lovely women, Dawn–honored beyond belief! Hugs to you, sweet Pumpkin and thanks for hosting this link up. T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
Aww thanks Tina. Pumpkin is improving slowly. You always look great and feature worthy, my dear! OXOX

Thanks Cathy! 🙂
That tee is so fun and love how these jeans make your legs go on for miles. Prayers for Pumpkin! BTW, what is the brand & name of your polish – love the color.
Would love for you to stop by & join TBT Fashion link up.
Hi Alice …Just for you and my buddy Sherry, I dropped by the nail place to find out the name of the color …it's OPI Number One Nemesis! I'm glad I found out because I'm going to pick this color again for sure.
So sorry about your kitty problems! Ugh! That is the worst! 🙁 I will say a prayer for her. I love your top and I have been seeing so many flare jeans, but I just don't think I can do them. They look great on you, tho!
Thanks so much, Carrie! OXOX
Love the layered back of your tee! the flared jeans look awesome on you too 🙂

Woman, the 70s is YOUR vibe! You manage to make it look both nostalgic and current and your long, lean silhouette is just to die for! J'adore everything about this outfit!

Thanks Olga! Muah!
Wow count me in as a fan of this boho-inspired look – you rock those bell bottoms!

A wonderful shirt, and a very successful and beautiful look.
Thank you! 🙂
You rock the 70s styles! Speedy recovery for Pumpkin, have a great weekend!
Thanks so much, Tiina! OXOX
Your poor kitty! Our two senior cats also have kidney problems and putting them on natural herb prescriptions with every meal has helped a lot.
On the style front it was a lovely surprise to see my pic in the round-up! Thanks so much!
I"ll have to look into that. Kisses to your kitties, Dear! OXOX
Poor Pumpkin. I will remember your kitty in my good thoughts and wishes for the day. My chihuahua has kennel cough again, and even though it's not serious, it makes me so sad to hear her coughing. On a nicer note, I love the nail polish? Is it hard to remove? And….. I love your blog.
Thanks so much Rosie. It hurts when our babies hurt. It's OPI Number One Nemesis and is just regular polish (not gel). OXOX
The 70s trend is so fun! Love your flares.
Straight A Style
Thanks Amy Ann … you know how much I dig it! OXOX

Aww thanks Laura! OXOX
That is such a cool top! Love the back. Those flare jeans make your legs look a mile long. Loving the 70s vibe.
Aww thanks Cynthia! Muah!
These flares are FANTASTIC, dearest Dawn!! Adoring the extra wide hem; and yes…their major leg-lengthening ability is pretty amazing, isn't it?! Oh, to be on summer vacay with you right now, so we could hit those vintage shops together…the back detail and tie-dye finish of your thrifted top is making me drool!! 😉 P.S. Sending lots and lots of love and kisses to sweet Pumpkin – and to you, too – a sick "fur baby" is such a stressful thing!! XOXO
How much fun would we have shopping together!! I would love that! Thanks, Monika! <3

My dear Dawn Lucy, I know the heartache of when a "family member" is so sick! Pumpkin looks adorable!
I am praying for Pumpkin and you!
Happy summer Dawn!! I'm finally off for summer, I hope you are too. The flared jeans are fab on you (legs for days;)! I'm enjoying the 70's trend myself. I've always had a weakness for maxis-especially poolside. Thanks for joining our #stylefocus linkup this weekend. Hope your kitty is on the mend. xx, Heather
What a handsome woman you are! I love every detail of this outfit!
