I'm not one to follow trends religiously but I am a fan of the seventies trend we're seeing sneak into streetstyle lately. I've always been a big fan of the decade, I guess it suits my sometimes hippy vibe. In fact I often describe my style as a clash between punk and hippie influences (I know this isn't always relevant) so the 70s really does suit my style if you put it that way. I've already got two pairs of flares, don't worry, you'll see them soon, and I'm on the hunt for the perfect pair of shoes to wear with them this season. It's tricky actually, they ideally should have a platform to balance out the jean, but I can't wear heels everyday on account of my bad back, so I need the right mix. Tweet me if you see any you think I might like!

I'm also still on the look out for a good paisley shirt. You can't beat vintage paisley if you ask me, so I'm trawling the vintage and charity shops right now. Speaking of charity shops, I picked up a faux fur gilet of my own the other day, it was originally 15 euros from H&M and I got it brand new for a fiver! It'll look great with key 70s styles like a poloneck and cords. Yep, they're cords and they're back. I've got a feeling they're going to be controversial, do you love them or hate them? And what are your new season essentials?
I'd also quickly like to mention that I'm sorry for the irregular posts lately, the truth is I've been feeling very uninspired and quite frankly lazy. I am working on a Leeds festival style diary but it's taking longer than I thought so do stay tuned for that and thankyou for sticking with me. If you are vaguely interested in what I'm doing when I'm not blogging, follow me on twitter and instagram :)
Good vibes guys ✌
