70's in Full Swing


Dear Friend,

If you read The Edit (and if you don't you should look into it), you may or may not have noticed that this week's edition is chock-full of 70's inspired everything - flares, hats, shearling, suede, earth tones, and so much more. I find this to be the perfect "pre-fall" statement. Yes, this is yet another post about what I'm looking forward to wearing this fall.

Autumn means to me... heavy fabrics, knee-high boots, denim, thick gold, etc. I think we can all put these items into the 70's category. However, I think we can also all agree that none of the above could have been an ideal match for summer weather. Right!? That sounds like one big sweaty mess to me. Maybe a peasant dress could manage as the summer go-to for a 70's girl, but that feels limiting. As such, I tend to postpone any 70's inspired outfits to chillier seasons.

So, back to The Edit. I completely adore this piece on the Victoria's Secret Angel, Behati Prinsloo. This is what my 70's daydreams look like! Makes me wish Indian summer wasn't a thing in San Francisco/California as a whole, but I'll survive.

How do you feel about 70's inspired looks? Are you planning on donning some bell bottoms this autumn?
