I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.
I can just imagine this being a look in the 70s, if they had this dress, they’d certainly wear it. I think it’s the bow…
(Excuse the wrinkly skirt, I steamed it, and then in a fit of trying to get ready, accidentally crumpled it on top of some other clothes…. which of course, wrinkled it slightly, but not too badly I hope).
Anyway, I remember thinking that a very iconic 70s secretary look was long sleeves and a bow blouse or dress over it. I feel like this meets those exact requirements except the bow is flat, more menswear inspired and modern.
Instead of just wearing the dress as-is, I added a tighter (comfy) shirt underneath so that the sleeves would peek out, and I chose a black ‘starry night’ skirt (the random dots make me think of a starry night).
The entire vibe instantly said: 70s!!.. to me, even though it is likely not even close (haha!)
A close up on that amazing bow. I am so happy I paid retail for this because my size sold out in a flash.
Little Bun insisted I wear the heart ring with this look, so I did. He handed it to me and said: Here’s my favourite ring! WEAR IT!
(Mini style dictator.)
I will admit he has good taste because it went with the outfit (and don’t worry, if I didn’t, I would have gently suggested something different… I am not about to wear something that doesn’t work just because of a little boy LOL…)
I also love the cut of these thrifted heels. I had manifested my wish for them when I saw them so often in a similar style on another blogger, and when I saw this V cut, I gasped. AND IN A LOW HEEL? Sold.
They’re very comfy and cool in a retro yet modern cow’s foot way (yes, it makes me think of a hoof with the way it is cut).
