I had to do this outfit for old times’ sake. These flare jeans remind me of those rebel teenage years of mine when I chopped my long hair off the first time to a bob style that made me look like Paul McCartney. My mom was sad, angry, shell shocked and outraged all at the same time when she first saw me looking like a boy. Those were also the years when I’d decided to be G.I. Jane which certainly meant refusing to wear skirts or anything that resembled girly. I had about 4 pairs of flare cord pants and those were the only things I wore paired with plaid button downs. My mom’s gifted friend, Kate used to make those pants for me which allowed me to let my creative juices flow and get over the top flared and patched…

These flare jeans have the perfect design and fit. The dark wash might fly for a casual Friday at the office with a structured blazer. The gingham check shirt is effortlessly cool and lightweight. Plus you can never go wrong with a timeless gingham check.

So, hello ’70s! It’s nice to see you again and I can’t wait to incorporate a little ’70s vibe into my fall and winter outfits.
