 Hey Everyone! I've got a 70's inspired outfit for you today! I typically only wear skinny jeans (love them) but sometimes it's fine to try something totally different. I was super excited to find this great pair of Uniqlo high waist flare leg jeans because I've shopped at Uniqlo in New York but we don't have one in here in Ohio and I've heard great things about their denim!

The blouse was an H&M purchase with a gift card I got for shooting my friends Cammy and Christian's engagement photos. I considered a lot of H&M's cute trendy items but decided what I really needed was a nice classic white blouse. I feel really good about this purchase because I know I'll be wearing this blouse for years!

Please say a prayer for my cat Fudge today (and for me and my hubby too). We took him to the vet today because he hasn't' been eating and has lost weight. The vet found what she thinks might be a tumor and it could be pretty serious. I've been crying all morning- Fudge is my baby and I don't know what I'd do without him. Thanks in advance and I'll keep you posted!

Today I'm linking up with:

  1. The flares have so much retro-style! Love the hat too, and thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  2. OH NO! Thinking about you and Fudge today - my shepherd had a giant tumor my first year of law school, and those first 24 hours after I found out and thought I couldn't afford his surgery are right up there on the worst days of my life. They're family, you know? Of course you know. Hoping for good news!

  16. Of course I love the look, especially that fabulous hat. Love to Fudge! Sick pets just break my heart. We had a tough year with the passing of our poor pugs, who were both sick for some time. It's so difficult.
