I love the 90s.

Big floppy "Blossom hat". Check.
Bright blue biker shorts. Check.
Badly blow dried hair. Check.
Amazingly awesome floral shirt with hood. Check.
Awkward pose. Check.
Sister and best friends looking just as 90s. Check.



All that and a bag of chips. Check. :)

What was your favorite 90s outfit?

I had, (wait for it, it's all true)

A shirt that was teal on one side and blue on the other, so you could choose a side and then roll the sleeves to showcase the hint of color. I paired it with either teal or blue (depending on which side of the shirt was out that day) pleated shorts and then, the kicker, on one foot i had a blue sock on bottom and a teal sock on top. On the other foot, switch that to teal on bottom blue on top. All was topped off by black keds.

I'm surprised anyone let me live to see the turn of the century. Seriously.

I definitely had the hat you're wearing. Man I felt cool in that thing. I had pink shorts. I was a fan of pink back then.

L.A. Gear!
Those plastic thingies that let you scrunch your t-shirt to one side!

Omigod, the Blossom hat...priceless.

My favorite was my forest green biker stretch shorts with neon orange shirt and hot pink plastic side holders with my four pairs of multi-colored scrunch socks and high top tenies. My hair in a ponytail definintely on the side... THERE'S NO OTHER WAY TO HAVE IT!!!! But the topper...... was my sea foam colored round eye glasses that were three inches thick. It added that extra IT factor!!! LOL So freaking 90's

Oh my gosh I can't believe how many of us wore bike shorts! My outfit was navy blue bike shorts and a white t-shirt with a smiley face that had an American flag background. Adidas tube socks that went to mid-calf (below the knee and above the ankle, the uncool zone for sure) with purple slide ons that are popular again now. oh yeah. stylin.

Let's hear it for the fanny packs! Awww yeeeah!

I had a hat exactly like yours! I like how back then I thought I looked so cool... but I really REALLY didn't.

I wonder if I'm going to end up thinking the same thing about what I'm wearing these days...

haha this is so cute! sooooo 90s.

ok. my favorite 90s outfit.

denim shorts that had a floral print. that's right, folks, floral denim. they had matching suspenders. and i wore it with my shirt that i tied into a knot on one side with a heart clip. reebok white high tops. and i'd wear three socks - multiple colors - and fold them in varying degrees so my legs looked like ice cream cones.

man. i kinda want to rock this outfit RIGHT NOW.

Katelin, you are so fly. ;)

LBIC said...

omg you've gotten me started.

I used to wear biker shorts with a huge t-shirt and one of those t-shirt circle ring things that you hook into it so it looks like a tail (i forgot what they're called) and black high top nike's with four different color neon socks. Oh and the snap bracelets that were banned from school

How cute! So Retro. In the 90s I was in college so I can't quite divulge what I was wearing. Because when you are a kid, it's kind of cute but as a young adult not so cute.

Hahaha. I love the hats. This is such a cute picture! And so representative of the 90s, it's eerie. My favorite outfit involved a pastel-geometric-print skort (that word looks ridiculous) with this loose pink top. And I would put one side of the bottom of the pink top through those little plastic circles so it would be asymmetrical. Wow.

Lesli said...

Omg, the 90s were the best. I had some really cute mini skirts and then I also had leggings with long shirts and OF COURSE big hair. Didn't have a blossom hat though! Oh, and I got into the grunge look of the flannel shirts. My favorite place to shop was Ups N Downs
