Happy January 2 friends! I am thrilled to announce that I have been invited to join the fabulous ladies of the Ageless Style Link Up! Each month the 10 of us come together to share a theme with you and show you how regardless of age we can wear ANYTHING! This month’s theme is retro style – something that had been trendy once and has now resurfaced. We are also adding a new feature – a monthly co-host! So much excitement and I am honored and humbled to participate!
So in true Kellyann style I racked my brain trying to come up with something fabulous, this being my first go round with the Ageless Style ladies. In the midst of all my fretting I turned to Pinterest and my 70’s inspired clothing board for inspiration. That’s when I realized my love of flare jeans (save,splurge,splurge) fit the bill perfectly. Paired with a pussy bow blouse, long cardigan, and platform wedge sandals I’d say I’ve channeled my inner 70’s loving side quite well!
I’ll let you in on a little secret – I absolutely LOVE flare jeans and if I wasn’t so clumsy my flares would be much wider. Unfortunately this is all the flare I can handle. When I’m walking my feet get all caught up and while I haven’t actually fallen I have come very close. Am I the only one with this problem?
I’m not entirely sure you can classify my blouse as a legitimate pussy bow blouse but I think you get the idea. According to Wikipedia a pussy bow blouse is one that ties at the neck similar to what a tie around a kitten’s neck would look like. The print may make it hard to tell in these photos but I did tie my blouse and I like it although I think it would be uncomfortable on an actual feline friend! (similar,another option,another option)
Born in 1968 (yes I am turning 50 this year!) I was in grade school during the 70’s. I remember well long cardigans that were belted back then. I always loved them and still do minus the belt of course (save,splurge).
Do you have a favorite retro style or article of clothing you like to wear? Please check out what other ladies are sharing along with our co-host this month Samantha Blair from the blog Fake Fabulous. She’s sharing a beautiful coat from 1958 yet it looks completely modern and stylish! How’s that for throwback genius? I am loving her coat and wish I lived in a cooler climate where I actually needed one!
If you are someone with a love of vintage clothing you definitely need to follow Samantha. You can check her out on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter.
Now it’s time to check out what everyone else is wearing and add your own link at the bottom!
