Weekend Revelry: Flashback


My mom sent me some pictures 
last week while we were traveling on our Mystery Trip.


They are pictures from when I was younger,
visiting many of the same places.

After looking at them,
I had the strong realization
that somethings really never do change.

Enjoy some entertainment at the expense of my pre-adolescent fashion.

Happy Weekend!

purple jean shorts & partial-pigtails. you betcha.

red scrunchie. hunter green anorak. navy cotton striped play pants... & bulky pink nikes. oh yeah.

fashion trends may come & go... but chipmunk cheeks are eternal.

If only my mom could pass down that embroidered sweatshirt of the Eiffel Tower. If only.





One final look of me in a gold track suit with leather sandals
and my mom in a visor.

You're welcome.

  1. I love re-taking old pictures, and these are adorable! Those pigtails remind me of Chrissy in Now and Then, haha. How were you able to travel so much when you were younger?

    My father worked for Shell oil and we lived in Holland when I was little, so I traveled around Europe as well. I'm going to Holland in a few months and definitely plan on bringing some old pictures. And I swear this isn't meant to be spammy but your post reminded me of a similar post I wrote- me when I was little in Ireland and again on my honeymoon - http://werejustdandy.blogspot.com/2011/08/writing-prompts-little-d-visits-cliffs.html
