Return of the '90s

May 12, 2017

Once a '90s babe, always a '90s babe. Honestly, one of my favorite trends that has come back around this year is rocking anything that was cool when I was a kid growing up. The Minnie hat I am wearing I actually got on a family trip to Disney when I was around 7 or 8 years old! My mom never let me buy the classic Minnie headband ears because I was constantly getting sun burnt on my scalp and face. So little mini Abby bounced around in her hat with floppy ears and sunscreen two inches thick on her face, but hey, at least I never suffered a burn in this hat! Plus clearly I love it so much, I haven't been able to part with it for 15+ years!

 I always feel so nostalgic whenever I sport my old school fanny packs, high waisted jeans, and chokers. And isn't that what fashion is all about, having fun and expressing what makes you feel good? I couldn't stop dancing around Art of Animation in this outfit because it just felt so ME. I think that's when you know you've found a good outfit, when you feel inspired to dance around or to make your own catwalk down the middle of your apartment (whilst carefully stepping over all of the other discarded clothing items and shoes on the floor around you, or maybe that's just me).

The number one question I got asked when I wore this outfit was: where did you get those jeans?! I got them from the Zara x Disney collection last summer! There were only two pairs left, and since the pants do run quite small, and I had to do some serious lunges in order to stretch out the jeans so I didn't feel like I was going to break the seams, but man oh man was it worth it! And now that I have worn them a couple of times, they fit like an absolute dream! Although these jeans are not available anymore, there are so many fun ways they could be DIY-ed! I actually have a pair of Levi shorts that I added a bunch of patches to after I bought theses jeans because I loved the look of them so much. Plus you can add your own flair and style by using your favorite characters or throwing some pins on too!

The shirt is from the new Uniqlo x Olympia Le-Tan Minnie Mouse loves dots collection and oh-my-lanta I adore it! The entire collection is so feminine and so fun with lots of dots, sewing, and little pictures of Minnie's adorable cat, Figaro (honestly why isn't there more Figaro merch??). Plus all the shirts are only $14.95, which is a total steal!

Happy return of the '90s, babes!
