Forever a 70's Gal
If you follow my blog then you'll probably know I'm partial to anything with a hint of 70's style. I just love the bright bold colours and eccentric prints often found on 70's clothing, and always find myself drawn to these pieces when shopping.
Life's too short to wear boring clothes right?
I was therefore very happy when I recently browsed through the Glamorous UK site and spotted lots of lovely 70's pieces. Somehow I managed to have some self control and purchased just a couple of beautiful bits from the collection. Here's how I styled them:
The Rust & Cream Pocket A-Line Dress - £27
This one definitely takes the cake as one of the most retro little numbers I've ever owned. It's such a beautiful bright colour (maybe even borderline traffic cone bright!) and I lovee it.
Living in the cold England weather meant I had to layer it up with a white top underneath, but you could wear it sleeveless for a more evening styled look with a pair of heels. I wore it with a pair of knee high boots and an aztec print scarf for a day time 70's chic look.

I managed to get these shots in the gorgeous little Park Square park in Leeds whilst on a Saturday outing with the BF. I lured him in with promises of a nice autumn walk and Starbucks Christmas coffees, but before he knew it he was taking outfit pics (does anyone else have issues getting their other half to do this!?).
But I'm not totally mean, we did have our walk and coffees in the end as there's actually a Starbucks round the corner from the park, so it's a prime weekend spot to visit in Leeds (especially when it looks so beautiful in autumn!).
The Rust Grid Print Knit Skirt - £24
I wish all my outfit shots could be in beautiful city centre squares with the mass colour of autumn leaves behind me, but sadly the weather was shocking this weekend so the next ones are from the wind free comfort of our flat!
This next look features another beautiful 70's revival item - this time with a fabulous grid print and contrasting black waistband. I couldn't double up on print for the top as it would have probably been a bit much, so instead I went for the brightest top I owned in the form of this mustard yellow Missguided shirt.

And that's all for today's looks. You can view the full Glamorous 70's revival collection here (it's worth a look trust me!) and I'll be back soon with more posts.
Thanks and see you soon,
