Go with me on a journey back in time. Regardless of your age, I’m sure you remember seeing reruns of Charlie’s Angels. How fabulous were their clothes!?! Can you visualize Farah Fawcett running in slow motion with her hair waving in the wind while wearing the most fabulous bell bottoms or jumpsuit? If you’ve been part of SOS for a while you have heard me give a shout out once or twice to the 70′ s style. It’s my favorite look and I’m thrilled that the flared bell bottom jeans are kicking skinnies to the curb. Finally, our calves can breath again! Since I am such a fan, I’ve done the research for you and found the top 3 brands who rock the bells the best. If you can, try a pair with a higher waist. This fit isn’t for everyone, but it’s the true 70’s vibe!
1) J. BRAND “Babe” Bell
2) PAIGE DENIM “Bell Canyon” High Rise Flare
3) HUDSON “Taylor High Waist Flare”
Here’s a flashback to one of my very 1st videos. The 70’s are obviously here to stay so just add your own modern twist:
Will you rock the bells this Spring?
What’s your favorite trend for 2015?
Keep steppin’….Keep struttin’ sistas!

Who loved the styling on Charlie’s Angels?
For Summer, one of my favorite go-to styles is the retro 70’s look. It’s timeless and always in style! Just about everyone can rock this look, effortlessly. With the temps heating up, our hair can get unruly so throwing it up in a headscarf will give you instant glamour while keeping cool. In the selfie above, I simply swept my rolled hair to one side and threw on a scarf. I was attending a b-day party that was tentatively planned for outdoors and didn’t want my hair blowing all over the place. If you’ve been part of SOS for a while, you know I am a HUGE headscarf fan. It’s probably because I’m lazy when it comes to styling my hair during Summer and this is truly a hair SOS rescue! Many of you express you can’t quite get it right so I encourage you to grab some scarves in different sizes and play around with them this weekend. It just takes a bit of creativity!
Here are several ways to rock a headscarf:
1. Wide Legged Jeans like these at Nordstrom
2. Flowy Crochet Top. Forever 21 has lots of styles.
3. Target has beautiful, affordable maxi sundresses.
4. Jumpsuit like this one from Michael Kors
5. Nordstrom has great metallic heels.
6. Chic floppy hat like this one by J. Crew
This weekend I’m heading on our first family vacay in years. I’m excited to chill with my parents, sis & hubby. We’re heading to the spot in West Texas where we went camping as kids! I’m so excited for Aaron to see that part of the state and for all of us to go offline & unplug for a few days. No makeup, cabin, cutoffs & flip flops. Instead of my inner disco diva, I’ll be unleashing my inner redneck hippie chick!
Where are YOU headed on your Summer vacay?
Don’t forget to strut.
