Classic 70s Inspired Style

Cropped Flare Denim - Lace Up Top @cobaltchronicle

This might be one of my favorite looks I’ve ever posted here on the blog.  Right when I saw these jeans, I knew I wanted to pair them with my new gold slide sandals (on sale for under $30!).  I popped on this lace up blouse and all of sudden I felt like I stepped straight out of the 70s, but in a totally good way!

I love how different styles and trends make their way back around but in a slightly different way.  I’ve been wanting to try out the cropped flare denim trend for a while.  I snagged this pair of Velvet denim last week, and I’m so glad I did!  I wore them three different times over the weekend.  This particular pair has a little bit of stretch to them so if you’re between sizes, I’d recommend sizing down (I’m wearing a size 26).

I paired the denim with this lace up blouse that I scored on sale for $27 (originally $80!)!  It’s still on sale and available in all sizes – I’m wearing a size XS.  I wanted a more tailored fit for this blouse, but I could have easily gone up to a size S for a more oversized look.

Lastly, the chalky white color of this Coach bag goes perfectly with this look!  The bag is GORGEOUS in person.  The suede on the inside is buttery soft, and I love all of the stitching, zippers, and different handle and strap options – it’s all in the details!

    I seriously loved this outfit so much that I had to come over here to see all the photos! You definitely rock the kick flares, and pairing them with the gold flats was a good move. And you know I’m swooning over your bag!
