OOTD | I Love the 90s

Denim vest with sweatshirt hood: TJMaxx | Sonic the Hedgehog backpack: Walmart | Neon hightops: Target | Ridiculous glasses: TJMaxx

So this happened last night. And since you never quite know what trend is going to crop up next, I figured I'd be ahead of the curve if looking like a 12-year-old boy suddenly comes into style. As you may suspect from this picture, the night ended with me pulling my friend (who does not actually look like Chuckie Finster but who may want to be gainfully employed one day) around on his Rollerblades with his Nintendo remote hooked to my Sonic backpack.

But the highlight, by far, was discovering the Fruit Loop martini, a concoction that comes complete with a spoon and a crushed Fruit Loop rim, and actually tastes like the milk at the bottom of your Fruit Loop bowl. Breakfast (alcoholism?) will never be the same.

What are your favorite songs/shows/movies/things from the nineties?! I'm a 90s music enthusiast, which means at any given time I've probably got LFO, the Goo Goo Dolls, the Spice Girls, and Fatboy Slim on a playlist together somewhere. And don't get me started on the Ninja Turtles. I'm still bitter that I never got a puffy shell backpack for my birthday.

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend :)

  4. The 90s were such a magical time! I mean, I was never coordinated enough to roller skate, but I begged my parents for roller blades. I got them for Christmas when I was 10, and pretty much just rolled around on the back patio where I could hold onto the house. I was such a brilliant child!

    1. Uh, you might be my mom's child. The first (and last) time she went rollerblading with me she broke her ankle. So really you're ahead of the curve!!

    1. The Sega!! Lisa Frank!! All of these things. Except instead of the Babysitters Club I read the Boxcar Children, which isn't actually from the 90s but I read them in the 90s so I think they count haha.

  11. You are TOO MUCH cute lady! Three Big cheers to children of the 90s! (born in the 80s, raised in the 90s, I'm sure you didn't need this explanation, but I didn't want you to think I was a baby! hehe)

  13. Love the outfit! Ironically, I wear this same outfit (minus the denim vest) on any given weekend. I'm not sure what that says about my style...
