Retro

Seventies style is back in a big way for spring. Since posting this drool-worthy outfit last week, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect platform sandal to wear with super flared jeans. Enter the ‘Carnation’ below by Nine West.

This beauty strikes ideal balance between comfort and style with its chunky heel and sturdy toe strap. The snake-embossed platform adds contrast and edge to an otherwise timeless silhouette (exactly what I search for).

This modern spin on a classic comes in four neutral shades for spring, each one more gorgeous than the next. It’s 20% off! for a limited time, so be sure to check it out!

I’m all about the silhouette of this dress. It’s been on my mind since winter, and I just snagged it at Nordstrom. One was left waiting in my size, and to make matters better, it was majorly on sale. Don’t you love when that happens? Thank you, sartorial spirit guides.

The extra long sleeves and A-line hem are dreamy. The satin fabric and stripes also make it year-round appropriate. This dress works just as well with spring-y nude pumps (shown below) as it would with tights and booties during winter. It’s versatile, and it’s no surprise that Topshop revisits this design in different patterns each season.
