Twistin' The Night Away

What I Wore:
Shirt: Thrifted
Sweater: Old Navy
Slacks: Joe Fresh
Shoes: Ardene 

There's a line in Sam Cooke's "Twistin' The Night Away" where he says a guy is "dancing with a chick in slacks" and for some reason this outfit reminds me of that. Probably because these aren't really pants, but they are definitely slacks. Every time I wear them I think of that line in the song. While browsing around the internet for pictures of slacks I came across this image which also reminds me of what I am wearing.

I guess it's the bold print and the bright colours but this outfit really reminds me of the 60s. Ah the 60s, my first love. I grew up listening to music by people like Sam Cooke and Gene Chandler so it's only natural that I would have an affinity for the fashion of the time period too. I remember when Austin Powers came out, not only was it my kind of funny but the fashion was just to die for. Of course now I have branched out a bit and enjoy the early 1800s and anything from about 1870-1970 and, but I think the 60s will always hold a special place in my heart.


  1. I couldn't agree more! The 60s is and always will be my favorite age of fashion and even decor. I couldn't stop watching Austin Powers when it first came out solely for that reason! This sweater/pants combo is perfect and that mint color is really gorgeous on you!

  2. I agree, the decor was fantastic as well. I would totally decorate my house in all 60s style furniture etc. if I could. Thank you! I know mint was a bit of a fab last year, but I still enjoy the colour a lot.

  3. omg, you look so adorable <3 i'm totally in love with your lovely jumper <3
