Everything ’70s

Everything ’70s

I don’t know why exactly, but lately I’m crazy for everything ‘70s. Colours, styles, accessories – it’s such a cool era.

I don’t know when this started, but given how I’ve been feeling about mustard for some time now, I’m thinking it’s been a steady incline over the last year or two.

And I’m just generally obsessed with denim in every iteration. Especially when faded and mom high.

I also recently took up water-colouring as a hobby, and lo and behold, the first thing I wanted to paint? A ’70s floral scene, you guys.

Apparently a low-quality phone photo of watercolour paper is deeply unsettling. I’m uncomfortable, but I’m leaving it. This is my proof of effort and obsession!

Come to that, last year I was re-watching That 70’s show on Netflix so maybe it was that…? Huh, I may be more easily swayed by visual suggestion than I want to admit. Something to ponder 🤔

And as I’m writing this, I’m realizing that daisies, my favourite flower, played a huge part of 70s style and showed up on everything from dresses to wallpaper to scarves and vans and more.

THIS IS GETTING WEIRD. Maybe I died in the 70s and was reborn in the 80s?

No? Too far?

Anyways, when I decided to get these glasses, it just made me giggle to have glasses like my Dad used to wear.

I hadn’t yet realized that my “look” was starting to morph…

Please note the hairstyles. ALSO ‘70s! Even though it was the early ’80s (don’t play me like I’m older than I am, guys)

…into a full blown mom jeans, muted stripes, orange lips, fluffy pony, full love affair.

But I’m digging it. Are you similarly into the era or do you have another era you currently love?

Hold my bra, I’m off to buy some more muted tones! 😉

    I was a 70’s mom and I definitely did not look that hot. More like unwashed hair, spit up stained clothes and a perm that had seen better days😁. the early 70’s, my hippie years – I was rocking it then! Sans kids.

      Aw! I love this because I feel like you are basically my 70s role model – I love that picture of you and B where you’re wearing the striped shirt. It’s everything I’ve always wanted to be! Mom life = tough life hahaha but I’ll rock the outfits at least, sans spit up 😉 What was/is your fave 70s trend after all these years??
