25 Jul 1970s: Back to Nature!
Obviously I am still on that train; predictable, maybe but I feel like the 1970s just lift my spirits in the best way possible. I have been quite sad these days, being away from Le hubs and going to doctor appointments on my way has taken a little toll on me…and the worst is all the doctors asking where he is and then realizing that his reason for being away is a little stupid. Anyway, nonetheless, I have decided to seek into fashion to stay inspired and happy despite all the circumstances I am going through. The rebellious vibes, the magic and the spirit of the 70s always put a smile on my face. Yay Woodstock! I am pretty sure I was just born in the wrong time. So today’s outfit is also inspired by the 70s: “BACK TO NATURE” which was a popularized slogan at the time which renewed the ideology of fashion. Inspiration from other cultures became a huge part of the industry and India and Morocco became the number one spots to vacation amongst wealthy hippies. I wish I could just go back for that part…it is a huge dream of mine to go to India and roam along the endless yards of colourful fabrics and touch all the textures and beadings…ugh!!! So gutted! The fashion in the 70s became a way for many to escape the Western way of life and connect with nature on a deeper level.
Here’s how I got inspired and connected with nature on a deeper level. It has been my refuge lately and walking along the trees has renewed my hope a little. Sounds dramatic I know, but sometimes, hormones kick in and I get really emotional…haha! The perks of being a preggo! I went with yet another floral item which I really fell in love with the minute I saw it hanging there at Winners; it was in the larger section, but that didn’t stop me. I still took a chance and got it and even though it will be a little too big once the baby is out, it’s still a pretty piece.
Since the shirt was pretty out there, I kept the rest of the outfit pretty simple, although in the back depth of my mind, I wanted to go full floral from head to toe…but I know that would have been blinding. I got these pants as a gift from my sissy in law back in Jericho and didn’t wear them much because I felt like they didn’t go with much…but the jersey material and cut of them made me instantly think 70s. Since there are quite long on me, wearing heels was the prefect opportunity. I am 8 months now and walking in heels for a long period of time is not only exhausting but dangerous; never thought in a million years that balance would be an issue in pregnancy. Clog heels are super 70s and I am so glad I own a pair and for today’s outfit they were super fitting.
For another pop of color, I decided to add these H&M blue earrings which I have had for ages and I still love them deeply; they’re the prefect finishing touch to a lot of my outfits and if I would find another pair in a different color, I would get them in a heartbeat.

SHIRT: JACHS Girlfriend ♠ PANTS: AGI Dynamic ♠ SHOES: Jessica Simpson ♠ SUNNIES: Kate Spade ♠ EARRINGS: H&M ♠ BAG: Ebay
So, this is today’s look…probs one of my favourite. The “peasant” feel and the ethnic vibes have always been focal points from which I got inspired both in my designs and in the way I dress. I find that drawing inspiration from different cultures brings us closer to each as humans and there is nothing wrong with that.
