Mary Tyler Moore, I Like Your Style

Who can turn the world on with her smile?

Who can popularize capri pants?

And play a nun who falls in love with Elvis? (Seriously, I love "Change of Habit".)

Well it's you, Mary, and you should know it...

With each flick of a beret, you have me coveting peacoats...

Love is all around for MTM. I spotted the orange Anthropologie sweater shown in my little inspiration board the other day and it triggered memories of watching "The Dick Van Dyke Show" on Nick at Night as a little kid and thinking she had to be the chicest housewife around. She practically laid the blueprint for the working woman wardrobe: sheath dresses, belted sweaters, collared shirts (sometimes seriously large collars...) and pantsuits.

Get the look with boatneck sweaters, black capri pants, a beret, a jaunty scarf, a pretty brooch, brass-buttoned coat and the perfect peachy '70s lipstick!

Great post. Mary is my all time favorite and I have done quite a few posts on her on my blog. She was my fashion inspiration of the 70's and still is today! I loved her Mary Jane pumps!!!
