What Goes Around

{Shop: Jeans, Boots, Lipstick-- It Girl}

When my mom and I would shop together, she would talk about all of the styles that she used to wear that are now back in. We'd walk into Forever21 and I'd see a cute outfit and she'd say "that is so 80s" and then reminisce about giving herself a perm. I scoffed at her old age, until now. Until these jeans -- I swear I had jeans like this in 8th grade. And now they are back in style. If only I would have saved those jeans and not hit puberty, I could have saved a couple of bucks. I wonder if 4-inch sole flip flops will come back in or denim bucket hats with fake sunflowers attached? One can only hope. 

I wore this outfit yesterday and forgot to post it. I also woke up at 2:30 am remembering that I did not write or post the last part of my Working Closet series and I never got around to posting this outfit or eating dinner. I also remember about 50 other things that were supposed to get done this week and have not. If my brain could talk, this is what it would say:

That's silence because she's asleep. This week has been bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S. So thank you for sticking it out with me. I can't promise that next week will be better but I'm at least hoping for an apples or oranges kind of week. And more outfit posts. See? Next week is already looking up. 

Also -- side pony tails are still cool right? 


  1. Love those jeans. I also had a pair a few years ago when they were in style for one second. Really wish I kept them!


  2. I used to have those pants too! Hood for comfort and beakdancing. (except now I'd brak my back and not the dance :p).


  3. Dude! Your blog is iPhone friendly?! This is too good to be true. I've surrendered to only reading on those rare occasions when I can actually sit down and open a rusty old laptop, but heck, now I can sneak my phone into the bathroom at work and read your archives while my coworkers debate my bullimic status! Excellent. Thanks for bringing me into the 20th century. Or is it the 21st now...?
    Sorry if this is posted repeatedly. I just said the blog is iPhone friendly, not the comment section.

  4. Lovely as always. I also had an idea for you. In your infinite free time, you should make a series on how to pose in pictures while not appearing high, constipated, or just plain off. Because you seem to have mastered doing so.

  5. When I attempt a side pony, it is your side pony from these pictures that I am striving for. I'm still trying to figure out how to get the looseness that makes it work ever so well.

    I also love this coat, I feel like it could work as a coat or blazer... although I could be wrong, I've never snuck in your closet to try it on and find out.

  6. I like your belted cardigan, looks great. Good luck with your bananas week!

  7. You always have infinite ways of doing your hair! Your side pony looks very natural...like you had a regular pony that was draped to the side.

    Ditto looking natural when you pose. My mind goes blank when taking photos so I always resort to the usual smile with one hand on the hip. Haha.
