In the Wrong Decade

Wednesday, June 09, 2010
I'm not too knowledgeable in decades and what was popular then but I do know that wide legs were the jazz in the 70s. (Just kidding. I didn't know that. I had to confirm it with my MIL.) I definitely felt as though I went back in time in this quaint little town my husb grew up in and my wide leg jeans. Actually, it always feels like I've gone back in time whenever I'm here....every time.

  5. Love the sunglasses! My jeans are mostly flared because they're the only type that even look good on me :-/

  6. I DO know all about that decade, and you'd fit right in. The only thing that would make it more authentic would be if you had a big star on your back pocket. Star Jeans were all the rage!

  11. So to me, those aren't wide leg, they are just a flare trouser, I have some wide leg jeans, and they are wide all the way down, but I suppose compared to your skinny jeans, those are wide! But you look great! Love the glasses.Oh, and you want to go back in time? Come to my town, it's like the old west, I'll take some photos and post it. It's really neat, actually. ;)

  22. My thighs are too big for skinny jeans and I'm always in bootleg, so those don't look too flared. Lol! But I love the outfit and LOVE the necklace! :)
