Penny Lane

Wearing: Forever 21 dress, Thrifted crochet vest + vintage bag, Not Rated strappy sandals, Elise M Collection stone necklace, cuff bracelet + chunky ring

Crochet knits and bell sleeves are such an amazing combo for spring and summer outfits and it's definitely a trend I'll be following for a while. This bohemian dress and crochet vest looked so cute paired together and looked even better once I accessorized! I put on some really cute scrappy sandals from Not Rated, they are so wonderfully detailed with straps and buckles, and look perfect with any rustic or boho outfit. I carried along my vintage 70s handbag that I thrifted for only $10 the other day, and while it has water spots on the leather along with cuts and wear on the strap, I couldn't pass it up due to its lovely floral and butterfly print and also because it's just such an authentic 70s piece. My jewelry for this outfit all came from the Elise M. Collection spring/summer line, and the turquoise stone details along with the rustic gold hardwares are just the perfect additions to my spring and summer wardrobe.

Lace + Leisure

Wearing: Paper Dolls via Little Mistress yellow lace overlay dress + patent nude mules, Under One Sky white floral bag, Michael Kors watch.

I've been making some efforts to glam up my summer wardrobe lately, and this dress has definitely added to that! I usually don't wear bodycon dresses because they make me feel extremely self conscious, but this pale yellow lace overlay dress from the Paper Dolls line on Little Mistress made me feel so confident as it turned out to be such a flattering bodycon dress! It is perfect for the hot spring and summer dress and can be easily glammed up for any daytime events. Usually during the hotter months I'm trying not to even think about clothes, but this dress has me thinking differently. It also looked so adorable paired with these patent nude mules from the Paper Dolls line as well. They are another great versatile spring and summer sandal and can be worn with pretty much anything!

The 1970's: Style and Music Inspiration for This Season's Best Trend

It's no surprise that the 70s are back in fashion, especially since festival season is almost here. Suede, fringe, crochet tops, culottes, I could go on and on listing all of the amazing clothing trends of the 70s decade that we're revisiting now. While I feel that style has come to a point where anything goes and that people can wear any decades fashions at any time and it's perfectly in style, I still love when a specific decade is highlighted as being the most popular during a certain time, like the 70s right now. It's my favorite decade and the music from that time is without a doubt my specialty, so I put together a playlist of my favorite songs from the 70s. It's a long playlist, but it's gives off a great feeling of going on an old road trip, which I love so much. 
It may sounds silly, but I feel more connected to the 70s than I do this decade. Everything just seemed so much better, and I think I would've felt more connected to the world if I was a teenager then. But, perhaps I wouldn't have appreciated it as much because I would've been so used to it, just like how I don't appreciate today's culture. I guess it doesn't matter anyhow though, because I'm going to always appreciate and embrace the styles of the 70s, regardless of whats happening in the current world around me. Let these images and songs inspire your inner 70s babe or bohemian goddess, too!
