Flashback Friday ~ Retro Style

The good ole retro days. The decades of the 50s, 60s, 70s, and even 80s. My mind associates these time periods with a more wholesome and less stressful day to day life. There wasn’t the craze of constantly being on your phone, updating your snapchat, or making sure to capture every moment in a picture for social media. A lot of great minds came from these decades, look what their inventions and technology have given us. I’m thankful for the new advancements in some regards but I wish I had the experience of hanging out with friends in a local diner, putting a nickel in the jukebox, and having a coke in a glass bottle.

I also love the styles back then. The winged eye-liner, the red lips, the feminine clothes, maybe not the bouffant hair though. I love the big, chunky, gold jewelry and the statement rings.

Even though we can’t go back in time to these glory days, we can still take time to not let the hectic life that is demanded of us totally crush our creative selves. Take time to call a friend instead of text, go do a fun project instead of pin a bunch of ideas on pinterest, and when you go on a corny skating date with your love ditch the stress of having to capture the perfect photo for Instagram and concentrate on creating a lasting memory instead. If you must take a photo, take a Polaroid. :o)
