{ Modern Day Flower Child }










After what seems to have been the longest month of my life, I have finally taken some time to myself and am getting back into the blogging routine! Why my first bff at Auburn hasn’t been my photographer this whole time, I do not know.

Has anyone else been getting into this 70s look comeback?! I am borderline obsessed. I picked up this lace crop at Therapy boutique downtown and knew it needed its soulmate— bellbottoms. I never ever thought I would own a pair of high-waisted flare jeans, but here I am now {and I want 10 more pairs!} Of course, being only 5’3, 99% of them are about 6-8 inches too long with wedges. During my trip to Atlanta last weekend, I made a mad dash through every major department store and everywhere that sold jeans with zero luck. Just as I had given up, a pretty little Nordstrom associate was walking out of the back with petite Topshop high-waisted flares. I’m pretty sure my face made the heart-eyes emoji and she definitely noticed, immediately starting a fitting room for me. The wash isn’t exactly what I was looking for but the length was perfect, the fabric is super yummy and they were on sale! {I would sleep in them if it were socially acceptable.}

So once I had the nearly-perfect 70s inspired outfit pieced together, I knew I was missing something — a hat. Duh. With Phipps Plaza closing in 30 minutes, I walked as quickly as I could to Topshop in heels knowing that I would also need Starbucks before getting back on the road. Again, duh. I almost bought 3 different colors of the hat because I couldn’t decide, but I also knew I needed new Henri Bendel stacked rings so I chose to only get the grey hat. Sigh. Oh yeah, so as I was getting my venti iced-Americano, the lights started shutting off in the mall. I guess the saying "shop 'till you drop" doesn't apply at Phipps. 

Long story short, I feel like I should make a flower-halo and call it a day. Can Patti Hansen and I be besties now? P.S.- Can anyone help me find the perfect pair of petite dark wash high-waisted flares? I'll love you forever.
