wear: 90's at noon.

our local rock station does 90's at noon. a whole hour of 90's music and i love it. i know everyone thinks their generation of music is the best, but i really think rock music was in a great place in the 90's. (don't get me wrong, i'm crazy for classic rock, but it's hard to beat the nostalgia i have when listening to smashing pumpkins, oasis, alice in chains, nirvana, foo fighters, et cetera... just takes me back to junior high rebellion, my massive crush on mark kettenhofen, recording songs from the radio onto cassettes and passing notes in a world before texting. i gotta lotta love for the 90's.) 
 
 
my friend, courtney, was just writing about 90's fashion and it totally inspired this outfit. wearing this skirt and these boots together seems like something i would have wanted to wear in junior high. with a sweet flannel tied around my waist, of course.
alas, here i am, fifteen years later with a baby around my waist instead...
nostalgia is great... 
but there's nothing like the present.

  1. Hey! Thanks for the shout-out. :) I've been all about the 90's too. I miss the days of note-passing like you said. We used to keep our notes and keep them in boxes. Things like that make me wish texting hadn't taken over. I mean, I am glad it did in a way for convenience sake, but actually putting pen to paper these days is a lost art. p.s. I need me one of those skirts. Soooooo cute and figure flattering!
