SLIDER

10 years ago

shirt + bag: urban outfitters, shoes: converse, jeans: citizens of humanity, sunglasses: h&m, beanie: american apparel

I'm one of those people who is just is in the mindset that it's 2005 and the heart of the 90s were totttallly just 10 years ago. I was a 90s kiddo, so I can't say that I really lived the era at an age where the fashions of the times really stuck to my memories. SO not really having any authority on the authenticity of this statement, I'll say I feel like some sort of grungey painter like gal transported from 1995. Possibly a Laney Boggs like character? I originally started the day off with some clunky, biker looking boots, feeling bad (irrational feelings alert) that I never wore them, but decided that was a stupid reason and ditched them for my converse. If I can wear these shoes with an outfit, then why not? Regardless of what my style has been, converse have been a constant in my wardrobe since the days of middle school. 

Few things to say about the individual pieces. These sunglasses are my latest obsession. I've been meaning to invest in a pair of plastic sunglasses but keep changing my mind on what exact shape I want. Hence, this super cheap option from H&M was perfect and I even bought them in tortoise. Black jeans-- forgot how much I needed them in my closet since I wore my last ones to death...literally. Last time I wore this top I mentioned how I wasn't really feelin the outfit. This time around, I was sooo much more comfortable. Even though the color scheme of the look is essentially the same, I like this outfit a lot better. Super what a swap in a few similar items can do for you. Huzzah!!

P.S if anyone actually consistently reads my blog, he/she will see that I basically use the same 3 bags. Primarily cause I need to carry a shit ton of stuff throughout the day, ie. laptop + notebook + camera at  least. Anyone have any recommendations for backpacks// large crossbodies? Preferably in brown?

  2. Love this look, and hmm...I had a bag like that and the lobster claw hook things got all bent because of the weight, so I got a Jansport backpack. Um, while I was backpack searching, I saw some nice (brown) ones on the UO site, and Roxy has some nice ones too, if you're interested. Not too sure what style you're going for, but I suppose you can check those out.
    Also, cheap sunglasses from H&M are great! I love my pair.

  4. i totally get what you mean. it does feel like the 90's was only 10 years ago. i have also had moments where I chose to wear something only because i hadn't worn and was feeling guilty. it is really noticeable when you are uncomfortable, and that is usually a sign that something has to go.

    just discovered your blog and I love how deep it is. I use the same bag usually, but I have no recommendations for what you need to carry. lol

  11. Whoa. You seriously look so effortlessly cool here. I love the bagginess of the shirt, and the grey beanie adds the perfect touch. The colors look grea ttogether too. I'm a huge fan of grey and denim together.

    Black jeans are my daily go-tos, so I totally get your love for them. And my converse have been a consistent closet piece since I bought them in Chicago years ago. I'm glad you changed into something that made you feel more comfortable. It always feels so much better to be at ease with your outfit.

    And I don't even rotate bags. I wear the same one every day.

    cheers,

    Gabrielle

  12. Love your shirt and beanie! I wish I still had my converses from junior high; I literally wore them everyday and they were so beat up, but I loved them anyway. I remember I drew on them too, haha.

  38. Valhalla Brooklyn are like the only large leather bags I carry. She has an etsy store and her stuff is addicting. I could see you liking them too - they are versatile. And I love this top - again. So. Awesome. And I really can't believe the 90s wasn't 10 years ago. I'm freaked out that I started high school over 101 years ago now.....
