28. it was 1970-something


The Shirt: Prabal Gurung for Target
A new designer clothing line was launched at Target on Feb. 10: Prabal Gurung! I went to my local Target for the opening and was entranced by the fun prints, feminine florals and ruffles, and bright colors! You can view the entire lookbook here: Prabal Gurung Lookbook link.
The Pants: Seafarer
Seafarer is a brand known for its iconic bell-bottoms. While originally created for sailors and supplied to the U.S. Navy, the pants were popularized after being worn by Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin in the 60s and 70s. When I heard through Women's Wear Daily that the company was being bought out and that the new spring collection would price the jeans at $237 to $316, I decided to see if the originals were still available online. Luckily, they were! And get this: they were only $10. Once this inventory is gone, I'm not sure if they will continue selling the originals (or they will at least be way overpriced). You can buy them at
The Shoes: Charles by Charles David
These give me major height, but I'm not going to lie: I fell flat on my face the first time I tried to take a step in them. Despite the monumental platform, they are actually very comfortable and super fun for spring and summer. I purchased them from If you have never heard of HauteLook, be sure to check it out: it is a site full of flash deals from designers. Let me warn you: it is highly addictive and even stressful at times (Only 15 minutes to buy! Ahh!).
The Purse: Old Navy
Nothing spectacular here! Just a yellow mini satchel for a pretty nice price :)
And lastly, a note about the title of this post: this song (19 Somethin' by Mark Wills) is my everything. It is probably a lot better if you actually lived during the 70s and 80s, but I love it anyway. Here's a link to the music video, and I have to warn y'all: it's country!

    1. Haha, "hippie" is the first thing I think of when I look at this outfit, too! Thank you!

  6. i'm loving this outfit, it's really quite refreshing to actually like an outfit that isn't dedicated to a vintage era surrounding the 1950's/60's. I'm a new follower of your blog, and you can check out and follow mine if you wish at

    Tata, leah at Amour, la fille. xo

    1. Thank you so much! I agree--it was fun for me to do a 70s inspired post, since most of the vintage posts I see nowadays are based on the 50s or 60s. I love experimenting with different decades, though, so I might do a post like that soon!
