that 70's show

I disappeared into the world of auctions, illness, parenting & valentines recently......but now I am back!  While I was on a bit of a blogging hiatus I did manage to follow all the excitement of NY Fashion Week and the nonstop chatter of spring --although not in most of our worlds quite yet, we can always make things happen for our closets, right?  
I see a reoccurring theme of 70's style appearing over and over again for spring and I love it.  The actual seventies for me were considerably less glamourous then what I am viewing on Shopbop these days, but nonetheless, I think it is a really great perspective on spring.  Plus, a lot of the looks can be worn now as transitional pieces as we move from bundling up to showing a bit of skin.  
I am really loving the wide brim floppy hats, both in felt or now and straw in the spring.  While my skinny jeans are still my go to at the moment, I have been revisiting my boot cut and flared leg denim all week and had forgotten how flattering they are.  I remember when I was a little younger, we used to wear our jeans so belled that you couldn't see your feet.  You can get the look again with the Hudson Wide Leg Jean or if you prefer more of a slight flair, the 7 For All Mankind Kaylie Skinny Flare Jean has the look of a trouser and is not quite so Led Zepplin. 
The flowing floral blouses are also everywhere, along with bangles, fringed bags long chains, and of course the fabulous wedge shoes, like True Religion's Sue wedge.  Remember, even higher wedges are comfortable because of the foot support, so don't be shy.  Start now picking up a piece here and there so you will have a bit of a look put together when the temps do actually start to get above freezing.  Iit will cheer both you and your closet up.  Promise.
