Living That Seventies Life





I always joke that I was born in the best year. 1979.  I got the best of of both worlds - all the crazy sexy cool of the 70's and all the fun and eccentricity of the 80's. It really was a great a time to be alive and I've always had a thing for the fashion of those times. In particular one of my style "icons" was Mrs. Roper from

Y'all remember her from Three's Company?  She was the QUEEN Of the mumu / caftan and ridiculously over-sized baubles. She basically personified my entire lady of leisure dreams.  She still does to be honest. 





So a few weeks back I was minding my business when a few dresses caught my eye and I just KNEW they would be perfect for brunch or something summery. They screamed ' glam day drinking". Wrap front with kind of slit and just California casual cool right? But a few were also over my $50 budget and I was low-key waiting for them to go on sale. 
Then while cruising H&M 's site later that day I found this glam number and knew I had to make it mine. 







I went to a few stores to see if they had it in my size but alas, it was on sale so it was only available on the website. I threw caution to the wind and placed my order hoping it would it fit. Naturally I stalked my mailbox waiting for it to arrive and when it did I couldn't wait to try it on. 
I am head over heels in love y'all. It's everything I dreamed it would be and then some. 







If we're talking #summergoals - this is it y'all. Easy breezy style with a little bit of glam thrown in by way of golden threading weaved into the fabric. I mean! 
And the pom pom sandals were just a fun addition to my wardrobe. It's like a party on my feet!! Who doesn't love that?







One of my favorite things about this dress....mumu....caftan....whatever - is that I can wear it with or without the shift underneath. I simply cut the little loops it was attached to for added versatility and voila! It's suddenly a cover-up as well! It makes me feel hella stylish without even trying and I am 100% here for that. 




I may need to hem it a smidge as I am only so tall and I don't want anyone to step on (by anyone I mean me) I could totally see myself falling because a] I am clumsy as all get out and b} it's on the longer side, but the way it flows when I walk? Yes, ma'am!!





What have you bought recently that's got you excited for summer?
