Seventies Flare!

Friday, October 23, 2015 8:25 AM

Good Friday morning!!  A few things... first and foremost I am so excited to hop into my car in a few hours and road trip down to see one of my besties and old roommate in New Jersey.  Nine years ago she moved from Boston back to Jersey to be closer to her family. While I totally get it, I miss her terribly every day!  We try our hardest to see each other every few months, but unfortunately this was a very hard year for her family, life sometimes gets in the way and it has been over a year since I've seen her beautiful face.  Her immediate and extended family are like my second family, I absolutely love these people.  Lindsay and her cousins have a boutique in Wyckoff called Maluka.  As if seeing her isn't the most fun anyway, I also get to hang out at the store and try everything on!  Endless brands, amazing clothes AND accessories, check it out! I can barely contain my excitement!  YAY!!   
Next order of business is... this week my camera decided to sh*t the bed.  Yep, my wonderful camera that is less than a year old just stopped working.  It began being temperamental a few weeks ago. Yelling at me about storage every time I took photos.  Perhaps if I purchased more SD cards?  Nope.  I began taking photos and emailing them immediately to myself in order to get them off the camera, until of course I got the 'unfortunately your email is not working' message, and shortly after that, it just stopped working all together. No turning on or off.  Nothing.  I tried to put my SD cards in my mothers camera, only to find out everything had been wiped out.  All my pictures gone.  My vacation, pictures of my son I wanted to use for Christmas cards, an arsenal of blog pics I took... all gone.  That leads me to this apology... until I can figure out something in the next few weeks, I will have to use photos using my iphone.  I know, I know, I am sorry.  

Wheew!  Ok, now that is out of the way, let's talk about Seventies Flare!  Remember when boot cut jeans were the only thing that was, ok?  Some of you are too young to remember that, but I promise there was a time in the early 2000's that boot cut jeans were everything.  I must admit, when skinnies came into style I was apprehensive.  Boot cut created a longer leaner line, and I was afraid of the stumpy, dwarfed look I felt I would get with a skinny... alas I fought my fear and jumped on to the trend.  To make this long story short (too late), I have been having a hard time again getting readjusted back to the boot cut or 'flare' jeans.  I saw the pair I am wearing on Forage Fashion, and I needed to have them.  Granted, I am not built like a supermodel, so they do look different on me, but I think I achieved the desired look!  Thoughts?

Have you ever been hesitant about a trend or style?

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!!
