1970s fashion has always been an era of fascination for me ever since I have remembered. I was probably the only 4th grader that had bell bottoms and crochet tops as her wardrobe staples and seventies themed birthday parties to boot. Thank you, mom, for providing the killer soundtrack for those parties. There is something about fall that makes me crave that seventies color palette and style. With it feeling more like fall this past week I have been feeling nostalgic for those bell bottoms. Unfortunately, I haven’t got my hands on a pair yet this season so my SNL inspired mom jeans will have to do.
Now I don’t if I look as cool as Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler did, but I am sure trying my hardest to rock these mom jeans. In my effort to channel my inner retro style I paired this off-the-shoulder top, I found at Target for $12.99, with my all time favorite basket sandals and gold hoop earrings. These hoops, which I found at Target as well for $7.99, have been an everyday earring for me lately. They give an effortlessly cool seventies vibe to this outfit which I am obsessed with.
When walking around Chagrin Falls trying to find the perfect setting to capture this outfit, it only made sense to go to one place. How many people can say that they matched their outfit with their surroundings? The Popcorn Shop in Chagrin Falls is a timeless spot, and although it was there way before the 1970s, it channels the spirit of a past decade.
