A Seventies Vibe: Fifty Plus Style

I was a teenager in the seventies, so that whole hippie chic vibe is still alive and kicking in me!  I’m delighted that the boho look is back in the shops, but I have to be careful not to wear the same stuff as I did back then.  So no denim pin-tucked waistcoat, no cheesecloth see through shirts, no off the shoulder peasant tops and no crazy flares.  However, that leaves plenty of scope for platforms, shaggy cardis, long skirts and fringed bags! Hurray!

This weekend I was at a wedding at Rowton Hall, Chester and wore this outfit to breakfast the following day. So, this explains the mad hairdo and tired looking face in case you’re wondering.  It’s a mainly M&S combo: jeans and tee from there, plus this lovely shaggy waistcoat which is comfy and gives a nod to the seventies.  My platform mules are from Mode a Pele last season: I’m having a bit of a mustard thing at the moment.   The bag is Jasper Conran at Debenhams which I bought in a charity shop.  My necklace is also last season M&S and a bit boho inspired.


Next on my wishlist is a fringed suede bag.  I’m looking!
