if you’re clicking over from my guestpost at sparkling footsteps,
happy you stopped by, and feel free to say hello in the comments!
and if you’d like to follow along on my adventures,
be sure to check out my twitter, facebook & youtube!

this is probably one of the simplest looks i’ve worn in a while, 
with minimal accessories and just the lemony yellow blouse 
and sailor-inspired pants to carry me through.  
i think both of these pieces will end up getting LOTS of mileage 
in my wardrobe during the upcoming seasons, 
and i can’t wait to style them up in lots of different ways!  
what pieces are you looking forward to styling for spring???
 top – vintage, swapped at the TxSCC, c/o market publique
jeans – urban outfitters
platforms – gift from mom
sunnies – fred flare “carrie”
clutch – vintage, embellished by me (DIY video here!)

    Such a cute little hippie girl you make!

    I looove a good high-waisted flare and even though it took me some getting used to (haven’t worn this style since college) I am glad this look is back!

    I am IN LOVE with this look! That top and those pants are both to die for. So, so cute.

    So perfectly simple! I love that top on you, it’s such a great color! And the jeans I’m quite envious of!
    I’m excited to style a couple of maxi dresses I recently purchased (when I was convinced winter was behind us, but that was a miscalculation apparently) as well as nautical ( a summer ‘go-to look’ for me) and boho type styles. Basically, I’m excited to get out of wooly sweaters!

    What a cute 70’s girl you make. Those jeans are so flattering on you. I’m excited to break out my dresses (sand tights!) and sandals once it’s really warm here. A sun dress just means summer to me, you know?

    The blouse looks so good on you! So glad you got it! Love the whole 70s vibe. So sunny!
