Groovy, Baby

groovy-baby01I’m definitely loving the 70s trend right now. Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong decade, based on fashion trends, of course. This is actually my first time wearing high-waisted jeans ever. At first, I was a bit apprehensive, but I think I really like them. It’s also a bonus that they’re flared. This look was so easy to put together and it makes me feel care free. I’m definitely channeling Austin Powers and feeling quite groovy, baby that is. It also helped that the weather this weekend was beautiful to wear an outfit like this quite early in the season. You won’t be seeing flowers in my hair just yet, but you never know… Here’s to a high of 70 today!

I’m so excited for spring to arrive that I took my own advice from yesterday’s Trend Report post and let my toes free from thermal sock hostage! Aren’t these the cutest Peek-A-Boo shoes ever from The Mint Julep Boutique?! The color and fit are perfect for this transition weather we’re having in Chicago. I’m ready to start wearing them in heavy rotation, so I hope you all don’t mind.

As a bonus, The Mint Julep Boutique and I have teamed up for a $25 gift card giveaway for one lucky HAMR reader. I can’t wait to see what you pick out from the shop! Good luck!

Trend Report: Mules

standard March 3, 2015 4 responses


Well since it’s March, it’s perfectly okay to start thinking about spring trends even though it’s still snowing out. Mules are perfect for that in between weather change. They’re not quite sandals or boots, but a hybrid between the two. I know I’m tired of my snow boots, so mules are great for prepping your feet for sandal weather. Your toes will thank you for releasing them from thermal sock hostage!
