Summer Fashion: Old Is New, Again

Today’s fashion is a callback to the 70s with its bohemian and retro vibe yet it’s made modern with current trends to keep it fresh. Retro prints like banana leaves and head-to-toe florals that are bright and bold are everywhere. Mules, block heels, tassels and round sunglasses are trends you probably thought ended when you or your parents were teenagers. Timeless patterns like seersucker and gingham that had their heyday decades ago are back in full force. They are made fun and fresh with bell sleeves and ball skirts to make them shine. Other trends like o the shoulder and athletic-wear make your outfit perfectly on point for the Summer of 2017.

My name is Tiffani and I adore all things fashion and home interior. I started this adventure (aka my blog!) as a means to chat about those two things with friends that love it as much as I do. My everyday life forces me to be a responsible adult, fabulous clothes give me a sense of youth, playfulness and the confidence to walk my runway.
