Summer Thoughts, 70's Vibes

Recently I was lucky enough to catch Inherent Vice at the flickers, and it filled me with thoughts of summer, and sunshine, and blistering hazy days of lazing about with the warmth of the sun on your skin. It's also a crazy yet brilliant film, and if you like your films completely bonkers but dripping with style, you might just love Inherent Vice.

It's always at about this time of year that I start thinking about my summer wardrobe, when the relentless gloom of winter starts to feel overbearing, and endless, and just, well, a bit dull. I was in need of inspirations, and the costumes in Inherent Vice piqued my interest because not only is the 1970's one of my favourite decades for style, it's floaty, hippy vibes are going to be all over the High Street this summer.

In terms of how this translates into a workable wardrobe, I think the 1970's is actually surprisingly accessible. Think loose, floaty pieces, like smocks, kaftans, and maxi-dresses, and you've got yourself a look that manages to be bang on point, yet comfortable and cool for summer (which we're all hoping is going to be a scorcher, am I right?)

I really love this denim dress from Gucci's SS15 collection. This shape is going to be everywhere this year, so keep your eyes peeled on the High Street (unless Gucci happens to be in your price range, in which case I am infinitely jealous). Asos have got a ton of laser-cut woven-look tan sandals in stock already, most for under £30. I really love these

Here are a few of my fave 70's pieces from my own wardrobe. Expect to see a lot more of these items once the weather picks up!

And if you're feeling brave, why not scoop up that mini-dress, or those tiny shorts? Go on, I dare you! 

Style Ideas: Thinking about Kid's Rooms

We're well into decorating our new house now (Hooray! Finally!), and obviously when I was thinking about ideas for our interiors I headed straight to Pinterest, that safe haven of wanderlust and slightly naff craft projects. 

Here are some of my favourite images I found when style hunting for ideas for the boy's bedroom. 

What do you think? I'm so in love with that last image! Head over to my Pinterest for more.
