That '70s Style

How is it already mid June!? This month is one of my favorites and consequently always feels like it's flying by in the blink of an eye. June brings the official start of summer, which means long sunny days, ice cream in Central Park, and of course summer style! It also contains a lot of family birthdays, including my own, and let's be real, I'm on board with any additional excuse to eat cake. 

Over my birthday weekend, I've decided to combine two of my favorite fashion trends of late. Number one is the '70s fashion trend that everyone seems to be embracing, if only because I love a good jean jacket. Number two is the adorable lapel pins which I have now become obsessed with collecting. 

Mixing denim pieces is one way to create an easy '70s vibe, and it's totally possible without looking like 2001 Britney and Justin at the AMAs. Here I paired a silver buttoned light denim skirt with a darker jean jacket. Pairing different shades and adding a patterned top helps me avoid the dreaded Canadian tuxedo look. 

Why hello, Jersey. 

My lovely friend Caroline took these photos on the Hudson the day after my birthday. They were snapped just after a delicious birthday brunch at Santina, and just before seeing Me Before You -- where we didn't cry and were quite possibly the only theater goers without souls. 

Ughh I'm honestly obsessed with my ever growing pin collection. It's such a fun way to make a jacket super personal. 

The "N" was a birthday gift from my perfect friend Shay and found in Pamela Barsky's downtown store.

My nerdy Starfleet Command pin is from Etsy

And finally, I found "byeeeee!" in a small shop in Williamsburg. 

Earth tones along with bright patterns and shades were prominent in the style color palette of the '70s. When in doubt, you can't go wrong with warm blues and browns, like I chose to. 

 However, if you're feeling more adventurous, you should totally go full on Jackie Burkhart and embrace vibrant colors and crazy prints. 

As you might be able to tell, my birthday weekend was a blast and I plan on sharing a little more of it this week so stay tuned. 

In the meantime, outfit deets are below. I hope they inspire you to buy a whimsical pin or turn on the hits of the '70s.
