That 70s Look
So this is look two in my Green Necklace Challenge for the month of August - the month where I have vowed to not purchase anything new but to instead wear the things that I already have, particularly if they have not been getting adequate play-time of late.
This is a very simple look, based on this thrifted 70s-inspired skirt that I got for a song at Goodwill on one of my US visits. It can be a bit challenging to wear; as with a lot of the clothes now that have higher waistlines (which I hasten to add I like a lot), things like shirts and belts that you would normally reach for without thinking suddenly don't quite work. I've found that I just have to think about my shirt game a bit more. Loose, blousy fabrics seem to work really well, and it may come to pass that I will have to go out and buy some new belts that actually fit my natural waist, and not my low waist, where our trousers have been sitting for the past 20 years. I would have added a skinny tan belt to this look had I had one that fit. I paired this look with another 70s favourite, the cork wedge. With a skirt like this, it would seem kind of wrong not to go the distance and pair it with the cork wedges it screams out for.
Overall, I think this higher, 70s-inspired waist paired with a blousy shirt and cork wedges is a very feminine look that's simple to put together and feels great on. Can't really ask for much more than that...especially when it's free.
