OOTD: Retro Styling with Rock On Ruby

Rock On Ruby Polo Shirt with flares

So, at first I was very ANTI-THE-70s trend that's happening this year. Whenever I think of the seventies, I always think of colours like mustard, orange, tan and olive green, which are SO not me at all. Blurgh.

But then!! Our absolutely, gorgeous, new retro bags arrived at work, and instantly I was like... I need one of those bags. What will go with one of those bags? I need flares. And that was pretty much my actual thought process. So, here I am in my second pair of flares - that I swore I'd never buy, rocking an OOTD that has a very 70s style nod to it.
Miracles do happen!

So, we decided to do a little mini shoot at Rock On Ruby HQ featuring our new bags and preppy range of polo shirts, and I wanted to share it with you guys on ze blog!

TIP: I'm loving how tall these flares make me look - yes I wear them with humongous heels, but still.. for a 5ft 3 girl, these are very height-enhancing!

Have you been embracing the 70s trend at all yet?!
Hope you like our new Rock On Ruby bags and preppy polos! There's lotsa different colours, let me know which is your fave!

    These really suit you! And I love that bag... Also loving your photoshoot backdrop!

  6. I was exactly the same- I'm still very into the 90s vibe and wasn't quite ready to let go of that yet! Definitely creeping in a little bit more and I'm kind of mixing the two a little as well. Really liking the new ROR bags, girly baby ✌๐Ÿป️

  7. That tee is such a lovely colour on you. And that's one hell of bag; gorgeous x

  8. They really are! I got some petite flares from ASOS and they're brill for wearing with flats too. Good old ASOS! :-) xx

  9. Thanks Andrea! Yes, I'm not sure if I can pull off an authentic 70s vibe, but this is enough for me at the moment... Baby steps! Haha! xxx

  10. Ooh fab! Haha! Yes, I used to wear heels obsessively, but I 'm quite happy being little now :-) Thank you! xx

  11. Exactly! Nothing worse than jeans dragging on the ground! However, I have just got another pair of flares from ASOS from the petite section and they are PERFECT for every day! :-) xx

  12. Thank you! Ooh glad you like! It's just at my work :-) xx
