Style Inspiration from New York in '69

I never thought I would be posting a style inspiration post drawing on a post from Buzzfeed! I have never been a big fan of the late 60's / 70's style, and I am the last person you will see jumping on the Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent brandwagon, but when I saw these pictures I was fascinated by how wearable the outfits still are! I mean, here we have crop tops, denim on denim and white shoes galore! More than anything though, I love how coordinated these outfits are. Despite my love of effortless dressing, I love that every detail of these looks appears to have been planned to a T. And with that laziness that I, and I'm sure many other people, are prone to in dressing nowadays (I can't be bothered to pick jewellery today/I'll just pair this with a simple top/No-one will notice if the comfy shoes don't go with the rest), I can't help but admire how these girls put such effort into creating the perfect outfit. Plus, how amazing would it be to walk around with belly art?! From BuzzFeed.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment!
I love checking out your blogs as well, so if you leave a comment I will come visit your blog sometime soon :)
However, I firmly believe that you should follow a blog because you feel inspired, not as part of a follow-for-follow deal. I will NEVER respond to "want to follow each other" requests.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
