As the weather in California goes from slightly cold to super hot and stays that way for seven months, I go through a fashion rebirth. I give away or consign, anything I don’t like or haven’t worn in awhile.
As I turned the pages of the latest fashion mags and combed through my favorite Pinterest boards, I was psyched to see what's in style now. Here are my top picks and what I will be working into my wardrobe in the coming weeks.
Hippie Chic is in and I couldn't be happier! It's coincidental timing (or is it?) to be posting about this look, as I'm going to the Fleetwood Mac concert tomorrow. Not sure what I'll be wearing yet...
1. Flowy dresses, layered necklaces, lace and fringe….
2. Flare leg pants….I have been wearing these for the past 4 years, so they've been on the cusp of the fashion scene for awhile, but they are full frontal now.
From a fashion standpoint, I think the 70’s is my favorite decade. It probably has something to do with what my mother and her friends wore during my formative years when I was imprinting everything. Even in my earliest memories, I remember what she and her friends – all of them in their 20’s – were rocking in nyc back in the day - 'bellbottoms" and tunics, crocheted bathing suits, chokers. So fabulous.
My mother had a coat just like this one that she wore when our family went to the zoo early in our new life in Seattle - 1976.
We weren't allowed in because, the zoo people said my mothers’s coat would offend the animals. I swear. It was one of many – 'Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore' moments, where the differences between living in nyc in the 70’s and seattle were so, so drastic. My mom, sister and I cried for the rest of the day. My poor Montana raised Dad...
3. Sneakers with everything.

Happy week my loves.
