Don’t Tell Me That You Didn’t Try And Check Out My Bum

(I know I know, same artist two days in a row, but I’m just on a Kate kick.)

This is a bit of a departure for me. These are People's Liberation jeans Nathan thrifted for me a couple years ago, and I normally reserve them for around the house wear, because, well, I’m not much of a “flare” girl. But last night as I was drifting off I saw them draped over the end of the bed and thought of this shirt. They are totally meant to be together.

This look has such a fun 1970s feel to it, but without being too costume-y.

It’s comfortable, and with the wedges, the jeans don’t feel nearly as frumpy as they normally do.

Besides the flare, the other thing that makes these difficult for me to style is the pocket.

I just lucked out in that the colors work well with this blouse.

We have three movies at the house from Netflix right now, The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, Where The Wild Things Are and The Fantastic Mr. Fox. I anticipate the most stressful portion of the evening will be deciding which one to watch! I think I am going to vote for Fantastic Mr. Fox to start, it looks so well done!

And tomorrow I have friends coming into town. I met them online and have known them since the late nineties, and have never met some of them face to face. I could not be more excited!

Those are super cute jeans. I love the 70s feel of the outfit.

Sounds like you have a ton of fun planned for the weekend.

You're a 70's dream! This is just super super cute.
I hope you like Mr Fox. One of our good friends did the animation...

You look wonderful! Not frumpy at all in those jeans :-)

Enjoy all your wonderful movies!

I had insanely high hopes for "Imaginarium" and I was insanely disappointed. I'd go with "Fantastic" because it's just that!

Lauren said...

Really love this outfit! Looks fantastic!

Kristi W @ Life at the Chateau Whitman said...

I love this one, especially the shoes. And the title. Is that from the old SNL Mike Meyers skit?

Linda said...

I'm feeling really done with the challenge, and really done with my blog.
I just wanted to let you know that you are awesome and I am glad to have met you, I'll still be around, but I think I'm shutting down that blog.

That bag is so wonderful. I am completely coveting it!

grace said...

I know it's not your usual style, but this may be one of my favorite ever looks on you. You're right re: it being 70s inspired but not costumey, and it's just all so good together. Plus I LOVE the bag.

Becca said...

I love the bag. And you should totally go for Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Loving the look, and the fact that I'm rockin' flared jeans today too :) I say go for Mr. Fox haven't seen it but I'm in love with all things Wes and I've heard only great things about it. Have a great weekend :)

Cute song lyric! And those jeans make you look awesome- leggy and relaxed. Dig the purse too.

Kelly said...

I've seen Dr. Parnassus and Mr. Fox and they were both great! I think you'll really like them.

Also I love this top. And that purse. And the 70s feel. Basically this is a great outfit!

How cool that you will finally meet some of your online pals!

Those jeans are great! They look so comfy. :)

The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus and the Fantastic Mr. Fox are both great! Very enjoyable.

Franca said...

The jeans were made for you!

Ooh, your movie night sounds awesome, and I LOVE the flares!!

veronika, tick tock vintage. said...

what a gorgeous purse! and you'll love fantastic mr. fox, it's an amazing movie (especially if you read the book as a kid).

Now, if you're going to do '70s hippie chic, this is the right way to do it. Love every bit - the jeans and top work perfectly together, and the bag and wedges are the perfect accents!

Modesty is Pretty said...

love your top! It's gorgeous!

Ana - Toil and Trouble said...

Not frumpy at all, very 70s cute!

WendyB said...

Those jeans look great on you. Hippie chic!

Leah said...

pretty sure i've said this before, but i LOVE your shirt! i don't think i saw this one at h&m when i went awhile back.

Kasmira said...

Wha!? Do you have some sort of fabulous tooled leather bag collection? First it was the gem from Morocco and now this one from Mexico. I evidently need to go purse shopping in countries that start with "M."

God's Favorite Shoes! said...

Love this 70's vibe! That top is all kinds of cute and flattering

Stephanie N. said...

Oh hell, yes. Those babies were totally made for each other. Sorry to be posting so ex-post-facto. I just really wanted to add my support for the flares working with this top.
