Trend Spotting: 60’s Mod

60's Mod



They say that history repeats itself, and nothing could be truer when it comes to the fashion world – various decades of the 20th century have been having their moments in recent time. Most recently I’ve been seeing 60′s mod-inspired pieces in magazines and in stores, and I kind of love it – here’s my tribute to a decade past.

Silver Sequins

Nordstrom Rack Top (similar here), Urban Outfitters Corduroys, H&M Blazer (similar here), Steve Madden Boots, Gifted Watch

When I wore this the other day, one of my friends commented that this is the brightest thing I’ve worn in months – and sadly, that’s probably true (as I said here, most of my outfits lately tend to be pretty dark). I hardly got the chance to wear my sequin dress (seen here – the one from H&M) this holiday season (okay, I wore it twice), so when I saw this top at Nordstrom Rack, I snatched it up so I could prolong the sequin-wearing season. I like the variety it adds to my closet, and it easily makes a statement without being too flashy.

Currently Obsessed With: Military Inspired

military inspired



Recently, I’ve been having an olive moment. Usually I’m indifferent to the color (although I’m a sucker for a military-inspired jacket), but lately I’ve been eyeing up a number of olive-toned pants, neutral knits and shifts, and utility jackets. (I also found the perfect shirtdress in olive, but sadly, it sold out.) I think I’m beginning to adopt my mom’s love of anything camouflage.

Tied Up

Forever 21 Top (similar here), Urban Outfitters Jeans, Rocket Dog Flats (old, similar here)

When I first saw this shirt, it reminded me of something that Blair Waldorf might wear (you should know that I’m kind of obsessed with Gossip Girl) – classy (black and white button-up) but with a twist (the bow at the neck). I think it will work nicely well into spring months: it’s pretty light and it has 3/4 length sleeves. I can see it paired with polka dot shorts or a bright skirt, but until it gets warmer, I’m perfectly content to wear it with black jeans and flats.

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, then you know I was over-the-top excited for the arrival of fall clothes in August. Well, I’m kind of over fall and winter now – and my outfits are showing it. I haven’t repeated any one outfit yet (not counting weekends – weekends are for lounge clothes), so I’ve resorted to varying combinations of black and gray and white (although a recent shopping spree has rejuvenated my wardrobe a little bit). With all the spring previews popping up around the internet, I’m becoming increasingly excited for spring – namely for bright colors and patterns – and I couldn’t help but look around for spring-inspired pieces. I refuse to let myself start looking for warmer weather clothes yet, so I stuck to looking at jewelry. I’ve always been a big fan of statement pieces (as seen here) and hyper-sparkly things, so naturally, the pieces above were winners in my book.
