Hello beautiful people! I feel like it has been a lifetime since I have published a blog post. I have missed it so much. After the new year, I had to deal with some personal things. Going through all that made me realize just how important it is to cherish your family, close friends, and God's love. Never take the people who mean the most to you for granted. Always tell them how much you appreciate them. It is such a small gesture, but it means the world. Anyway, I am super excited to be back and am more than ready to keep this blog filled with new material.
Since it has been freezing out and there aren't a whole lot of places to take pictures outside in Morehead, I had to think outside the box. I looked all over Pinterest for some inspiration and found that people were taking pictures in laundromats. I absolutely loved this idea. As soon as I saw these pictures, I immediately texted my friend, sorority sister, and amazing photographer, Shauna. As always, she was totally down for it. Since starting this blog, my goal was to forever live outside my comfort zone. Let me tell you, this was definitely one of those times. Just imagine the looks we were getting... However, I think it was totally worth it. I am so glad we did it, even though it wasn't the most comfortable time.
I couldn't decide what outfit I wanted to take pictures in, so I just did both. To me, they definitely have the 90s vibes. This Tommy Hilfiger Jeans sweatshirt is definitely screaming 90s. I love how Tommy is making a comeback. I remember looking at some of my baby and toddler photo albums and everyone wore Tommy. I saw this sweatshirt at TJ Maxx, and had to get it. It is very comfortable, and I love it. For an even more 90s look, I paired this sweatshirt with my "mom" or "boyfriend" jeans. Then, I just put on some white Converse and headed out. Also, huge shoutout to Sierra Lykins, another one of my sorority sisters, for letting me borrow her Converse. I left mine at home, and haven't been back to grab them.
This other outfit isn't necessarily 90s, but I liked it. It is just a basic white t-shirt from Walmart. I just tied it up for a more feminine look. This tie up knot is seriously so simple. All you have to do is grab two pieces of the shirt and then tie it in a knot. I put on this bandana like choker. This was actually a belt I wore in the 90s. I am thinking it was from like a cowgirl outfit or something. Anyway, it is super old and I just wrapped it around my neck twice and tied it in a knot. I know chokers were huge in the 90s and maybe are even bigger now. Many people have been wearing bandanas as chokers too. I paired this shirt and choker with some American Eagle high waisted jeans and white Converse.
I hope you guys really enjoyed this post. I had so much fun taking pictures for it. It was seriously a blast. I hope to be posting once a week or at least once every two weeks. Sometimes it is very challenging to get posts up due to school, work, and other obligations. Please just be patient with me. I promise I'm not quitting this or giving up any time soon. I truly love doing this.
