Fashion Flashback: Senior Year

I'm loving reading everyone's fashion flashback stories for the "back in time giveaway"! I thought I'd share a few of my fun outfits back from senior year of high school. I love looking through the folder of outfit pictures. Back then I had such eccentric taste, I was so experiemental with fashion and finding my own unique sense of style.

I'd love to embrace that bit of senior year me--not being afraid to put unusual colors together, wear crazy thrift store finds, or pile on accessories.

What fashion advice would you give yourself a few years ago?

xoxo, lauren

Oh dear, you were much more stylish than I was in high school! I was scared of fashion and used to just wear jeans and not-very-exciting tops, mostly in black or white. No make-up, and hair always pulled back into a scary librarian bun. My advice to younger me: don't be afraid to branch out!

ooh dear.. I do have a lot of bad fashion moments back in time.. I guess we all have.. If I could go back, I'd totally stop myself from wearing baggy pants! I'm too short and my hips are to wide.. baggy pants are not a good thing for me.
THANKS for following my blog by the way.. I love yours!
Take care!

I wasn't as into fashion in high school. I barely had any money to spend on anything back then. I still keep things from high school though and try to throw them in with my expensive items I can afford today! You looked super fashionable for your senior year Lauren! xo

See, I was the biggest tomboy in high school - I lived in baggy jeans and oversized sweatshirts. My advice to my high school fashion self...embrace being a girl and leave the baggy clothes for the boys!! :)

Freshman year I took a lot of "risks," as I could put it... basically, the entire year I was trying to find myself, style-wise. I remember one god-awful outfit I had with a cute green and yellow sundress, paired with black knee socks (um, hello? what was I thinking?!) and green and yellow Juicy Couture van-style shoes. It was a strange combination. Weirdly enough, I got a lot of compliments.
My style has definitely evolved to something more polished, but classic and comfortable as well.

ohhh, i wish i could give myself a loooot of advice. haha. well, it was my senior year last year and i didn't dress for "me" .. if that makes any sense. i was lazy because i had no one to "impress" (read: no cute boys) haha :p

ps: your guest post is up darling! xo

I would tell myself it's ok to be more feminine and wear dresses for fun! I am a HUGE fan of sundresses now but back at the beginning of high school the only dress worth events were homecoming and prom! Dresses are the easiest thing to wear and always look so classy.

I'd tell myself to switch things up and not just be the "plain shirt and jeans" type of girl.

High school is definitely about experimenting and figuring out your own taste and style - good on you for doing so! :)

I would tell little 'ole seventeen year old me to take a few more risks - rock the thrift store skirt, the bright lipstick, or the the crazy tee.

I would also tell myself to learn to walk in high heels before age 21. I'm 5'10", and that was the bane of my existence until junior year of college. Now I love being tall, and I wish I always had!
