Floral and Denim Nostalgia.

Whenever I see a floral dress paired with a denim jacket, it always reminds me of the 90's. I am a 110% proud product of the 90's. To me, it was just the best decade (but I'm sure everyone feels that way about the decade they grew up in). I pine for the days when The Secret World of Alex Mack was on Nickelodeon and it was completely ok to mismatch colors and patterns and carry around a Polly Pocket as a purse. Anyway...sometimes I like to wear outfits that remind me of childhood because, well, I had a pretty good childhood and I miss lots of parts of it...including the fashion. Check out this little number I donned when I was about 3 or 4:

[Little me!]
It's a little more 80's than it is 90's, but you get the point. Sometimes I wish there was this magical machine that could take clothes that I had as a child and warp them into adult-size so I could wear them today. Even when I'm in stores nowadays, I see dresses for little girls that I wish they made in my size! Sigh... Anyway...this is what I wore on Saturday. Floral dress, denim jacket, 90's approved.

Dress: H&M
Jacket: H&M
Tights: Simply Vera by Vera Wang
Wedges: Jessica Simpson

I just got this dress and jacket on my most recent mall extravaganza. I've been wanting a new denim jacket for a while now. This one is cropped, comfy, and light...which fulfills all my denim jacket needs!

I brought along my fun heart-shaped glasses. Some outfits just beg for some sort of fun accessory like that.

Sometimes you just need to wear heart-shaped sunglasses. And speaking of shaped sunglasses...we all know how I love apples, so when I saw these on Modcloth, I was super excited. Unfortunately, I didn't order them in time because they're sold out now. :( Oh well, hopefully they will get them back in stock or I will hunt another pair down elsewhere. They're just too cute!


  1. hehe, the heart-shaped glasses definitely fit in with the 80's-90's routine!!! Love the recreation! Looks like your fashion stle was apparent from an early age! That dress and coat combination is perfect!!! Ebay and you may find the glasses you're looking for!!! :-)

  2. That's such a pretty dress! Love that you've paired it with a denim jacket. And those sunnies are absolutely adorable; they looks great on you!!
