I am totally channeling the 90s in my outfit today. I am pretty sure I owned a very similar sundress to this one in 1995. I don't care though, when I saw this dress at the two birds garage sale I just had to have it. And I've been crushing on denim vests I've seen other bloggers wearing for awhile now too, so I found this one at Mighty Swell the same day I bought the dress and when I saw these next to each other, I knew I had an outfit to wear. Even if it makes me feel 13 again.
It's weird, summer often makes me nostalgic for my youth a little bit. I mentioned yesterday I've been watching old Blossom episodes on YouTube. While making dinner last night I seeded my iTunes Genius with a Cranberries song. At dinner the Pants Monkey and I were marveling at the fact that you can hear Smashing Pumpkins playing on the radio again. I also hear No Doubt is back together too. Yes, all these things do make me think fondly of the good old days.
I wouldn't actually go back to the 90s for anything though. I was a pretty awkward pre-teen, so really, we don't need to relive those days!
I laughed when I came back in the house after taking my pictures this morning and found Disapproving Taylor hiding under the chair here. It's like she's saying "Mom, you aren't a teenager anymore, it's not 1995!" Too bad Taylor, I like this outfit anyway.
Before I go, I will also share one of my favorite 90's music videos. Remember those? You know, singers and groups would make a little mini movie out of one of their songs and then these cool TV stations called MTV and VH1 would play them all day long. Oh you've heard of those channels? Yeah, I know, they just play reality shows and movies. No such thing as music videos. It's sad really. (For real, MTV should just drop the "M" from their name. Oh and do you know what VH1 originally stood for? Video Hits One. Hmm...) Anyway, thanks for indulging me on a trip down memory lane!
