Side of the Road

Greetings.  This is a slightly different post than usual as I used more filters and such on this photoset than normal.  I think it works because I'm using my brother's TransAM as a backdrop and am wearing 70s inspired duds.  These photos are feeling extra vintage-y!

Before I continue...can anyone guess where the blog post title, "Side of the Road," came from?  I'll give you a few hints: he's a singer/songwriter, is considered something of a musical genius, and each album is a little bit different than the next.  Answer at the bottom of the post!

Anyway, I love these 70s inspired pants from ModCloth that I got on clearance ($19.99!) earlier this year.  They've been perfect knock around jeans for colder days while still keeping some of my personal and largely based vintage style.  They're really long so wearing some kind of heels is basically a must.  Are you guys sick of these Jessica Simpson heeled platform sandals yet?  Haha, I'm not!  I own them in white too but I've definitely worn these yellow babies a lot this summer!  

The rest of the outfit is rounded off by a Forever 21 bodysuit, a NicCoco Creations hair flower, H&M aviators, a necklace from Charming Charlie, and a Kate Spade bag that I don't wear nearly enough.  

You'd think that I would have used my love of hair metal as my blog post title (seriously, how many music videos had chicks all over cars in that genre?!) but instead I went with a Beck song!  Beck is pretty up there in my musical favorites and this not as well known song is seriously a beautiful and lonely anthem.  As there aren't too many roads near me that I've deemed safe to take outfit photos on, I figured I'd use a road based song title for a car shoot!

  11. I love this look Lauren! Great style! ;)

  12. Loving the 70s jeans on you! Your lovely long legs are working them. 70s is quite a neglected era in vintage style blogs - I find most of the styles don't suit me as I'm so short, but I'm totally game for seeing other stylish ladies rocking it! x

Hey, all!  I'm a big baseball fan and my mom is from Chicago so I grew up hearing about the Cubs history and am pretty amped to be here at game 7!  Anyone else into this year's World Series or have a fan favorite they're rooting for?
Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post showing my fandom!  I decided to be silly and wear my Cubs tee with a skirt (same as my zombie skirt) from Retrolicious via ModCloth with bears all over them...get it?  Hehe. I'm not into totally normal sports attire, as I exhibited HERE. Stay safe tonight if you're out watching tonight!

Ocean Front Members Only

Is this a style post only I could bring you or what?  Not only did I mix prints (three times, as the Forever 21 shirt is gingham, the ModCloth briefcase is dinosaur printed, and my true vintage skirt is an ocean front border print!) but I'm mixing vintage with modern fashion.  It seems that many vintage-y bloggers tend to stray from any trends, which is silly to me because these bomber jackets are SO comfortable and practical for between seasons weather (and frankly, Members Only IS a vintage brand)!  I tied this whole look together with using the Members Only Satin Washed Boyfriend Jacket in burgundy with these platform heels from Amazon by Dadawen.  I feel the burgundy bookends bounce off the greens and blues nicely.

How's everyone's week been?  Thanks for allowing me to take a week off!  Not only did I have obligations at the Comedy Central Stage and the Upright Citizen's Brigade stage this week, but I was hosting one of my very best friends who came to visit me!  …
