musings of a dreamer

I am and always will be a 90's kid. Weren't the 90's the best decade? I often find myself feeling sorry for kids who have to grow up in this new age. All the new technology seems to make childhood less fun. I remember having to come home when the streetlights were on, playing in the park, wearing crowns of braided dandelion's, dancing to the Spice Girls, and wearing a lot of spandex. Those were the good times. I miss them. A lot. This outfit is my tribute to the 90's. Unfortunately, I forgot to wear my white ruffled socks. Denim, braids, friendship bracelets, hair clips, neon spandex shorts, the whole combo. Got to love the 90's.


























Marciano dress. vintage jacket. Aldo wedges. American Apparel cycle shorts. necklace is a gift.

Coming from a fellow 90s kid - the 90s ROCK! tehehe.

Great outfit and photos - I cannot express how much I love your neon cycling shorts. There's a sale on at Henry Holland (if you've heard of it?) They've got violet cycling shorts for £4!
I wanted to get them, but there's no way I can pull them off as good as you do ;)

I'm following your blog! (:

I love the shoes your wearing :D

Carys said...

You look lovely!! I agree about growing up in the 90s, these days all kids have mobile phones, which was basically unheard of in the
90s, I am sure I would never have played out so much if I had all the technology we have now.

Oh, I love the 90's!!! This is a super cute dress. I really like this homage to such an awesome decade.

Laura Tenshi said...

Exactly, kids these day are missing on all the fun. And the tv shows back then were so cool. Remember " Saved by the bell?" "90120 Beverly Hills" and many others ? Love your dress, so pretty.

Wow. I'm so glad I found someone that agrees that the 90s are INFINITELY BETTER THAN THE 80s!!! I miss the boybands and pop groups more than anything. I lived for Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, and britney spears.

loving the vintage denim!!

AMY said...

lol, i love your 90s look! cute dress and love the friendship bracelets. i feel sorry for the kids in this generation too because all they seem to do is stay inside and play video games. i miss being a kid and playing OUTside until dusk.

Nubia said...

I love this post! I couldn't agree more about childhood not seeming as fun.. I love your shoes also

Swell denim jacket and pictures!

AND HIGH FIVE FOR BEING A 90s KID. I'm SO with you! Kids these days have no idea what their missing out on! My fisher price tape recorder will triumph an ipod ANY DAY. And I had a ridiculous amount of friendship bracelets. They weren't from friends though. I just, kind of, made them for myself. Hah, I was a loser.

Oh, but you can't forget the crop tops! I had one that strategically tied to show of my belly button! Promiscuous!

*Happy reminiscence*

Yep the 90's... I always thought the 80's were the spandex era. Although I do remember spandex being worn in the early 90's. By the late 90's spandex was pretty much out of style.
