I dashed on over to see if they had my size. They did! Woot Woot! I dragged the boys into the fitting rooms and tried them on. I have to say, I looked pretty darn snazzy in camo cargo pants. Oh, yeah! AND the best part... they were on clearance! Can I say deal!?
It wasn't until I got home and put them on that it hit me. I would have totally LOVED these pants in high school! Then, what was I thinking?! I am almost 30 years old, and here I am still buying clothes that I would have worn 12 years ago! Am I going through a midlife crisis early? Maybe my weight loss has clouded my thinking? Or perhaps I am just plan insane.
I looked at myself in the mirror again.
Nah, I was still pretty cool! ... and just crazy enough to pull the look off.
I think most of us still cling a little to the styles of the past, I mean, they were a huge part of our lives just like they are now. However, there more times than not when we see an old picture and say: "What the heck was I thinking!!" and then sometimes we shake our heads with disgust when we see some of those old styles coming back looking just as bad as they did then!
So my question to you: Who were you in the 90's, 80's or even the 70's? It can't be any worse than me! I was one of those girls with the multicolored hair, riding a skateboard and sporting huge jeans and tie-dyed shirts! Oh, the good old days... please just stay the good old days...
Me in the 80's: Love the permy mini mullet look! And seriously, who didn't wear the buffy bangs??
You know, I still can't believe Ben and I didn't hook it up in high school? Oh, never mind... I remember why...
Ben in the 90's: Sorry, just couldn't resist...
Now, I thought of posting some real goodies of my parents in the 70's, but I decided that I really like having them talk to me to these days.
Have a great day!
