My husband often says I was born in the wrong decade. Sometimes, I think he is right. Especially lately. My obsession with all things 1970s has reached an all time high. It seems that everything I see and do reminds me of that incredible decade. From the new Trisha Paytas music video (which is set in the 70s) to the David Cassidy concert (which I attended recently in Niagara Falls), new pieces in my wardrobe (each with a distinctively seventies vibe), and my beloved John Denver records (that are played over and over again).....the 70s are alive and well. At least for me.
I don't know why this decade speaks to me so strongly. Perhaps it has to do with the innocence of it all. Television shows were sweet and heartwarming. Music was meaningful. Fashion was fun. And then there was all of that beautiful optimism. Despite a challenging political climate, there was a belief that the world could and would change for the better. It was a time of speaking out. It was a decade for dreamers. Honestly? I think the world could use more of that these days.
Since so much of my life lately is 70s, 70s, and more 70s....it made sense to create a blog post about my current obsession. Here are a few pictures dedicated to the things I love most. Vinyl, great music, and incredible fashion. I hope they inspire you as much as they inspire me.
The 1970s are a huge source of inspiration for me lately. I think they always will be. There are so many aspects of that decade that make me smile and make me feel. What a wonderful way to be.
What inspires you? Do you have a current obsession?
