That 70s Dress

When I was a teenager, I was enamored with clothing from the 60s and 70s. My mom, having lived through that era, would look at those styles with disgust, in great contrast to the reverence I had for those styles. Now I am seeing teenagers covet clothing from the 90s and I can totally understand my mom's reaction! Regardless, I think there are always things from every decade that can remain aesthetically pleasing. Take, for example, this far-out or even groovy floral dress from H&M. It's definitely retro but to me it still seems fresh! Perhaps that's because of all of the vibrant colors found in the floral print?

H&M actually carries other items in this print, so if you like the floral print but don't want to channel the 1970s with the bell sleeves, you can also get the print in a pair of shorts or in a midi-length skirt. (I actually own the shorts too!) On my most recent trip to H&M, I also picked up these scalloped sandals. I wasn't going to get them but I was only $10 away from being able to use an extra 15% off coupon if spending $75 or more, so I added them at the register so that I would qualify for the coupon! I didn't realize it at the time but these sandals just happened to be the perfect accessory to complete my dress! It was definitely a far out deal!
