Do you feel a certain sense of synergy between yourself and me?

First off, I just want to thank all of you for your support and kind words on yesterday's driving post. You guys are the best :)
The other day, when a few of my high school friends came over, we were discussing our first impressions of each other and the ways we used to act and dress. One of my friends recalled thinking I was weird and kind of creepy. She immediately reinforced that she was wrong (about the creepy part), but honestly, I don't blame her nor am I surprised to hear that. When I was a freshman in high school I had a strict uniform of dark (olive or black) pants (rarely jeans) and a band tee shirt.

Shirt: Probably Hot Topic, Skirt: UO, Belt: Target, Shoes: Steve Madden

All of this reminiscing made me want to revisit some of my old clothes. While I've given most of the horrible pants away, I have kept nearly every single band tee shirt I used to wear. Seriously. I have two and a half drawers full of all different tee shirts for all different bands. I would call it a collection, but I used to wear one every single day until junior/senior year, when I started wearing what I disgustedly called "girly shirts".

I hardly ever wear tee shirts anymore, but meeting up with my friends really put me in the mood to wear one of them. I've definitely updated this tee shirt, which in the past was most often worn with skinny jeans and converse. I think tee shirts and skirts look cute together, though. And while the fourteen year old me was scowling and vomiting, I was pretty happy with it.

Also, I bought these floral knee highs when I was in San Francisco and I've been trying to figure out how to wear them. While I've seen a lot of girls wearing ankle socks with adorable outfits, I'm still iffy about them on myself.

Before I go, just a reminder! Don't forget to enter my headband giveaway if you haven't already! It ends Monday night :)

Until tomorrow,
Nicole :)


  1. I used to wear nothing but band t-shirts and jeans when I was in high school too, until I was a senior. I'm sure people probably thought I was a total creep...I used to be painfully shy and didn't really talk to anyone, and wore only a dark wardrobe all the time. I have a few t-shirts left somewhere in the bottomless pit of a closet I have. btw, those socks are so cute! You definitely pulled the trend off well.

  2. Isn't it funny how we change fashion wise? I used to not be able to dress myself, and clashed long flowy tye-dye skirts with T-shirts. :P I remember we had to do a presentation on what we wanted to be in front of the class in middle school, and I said I wanted to be a fashion designer, and everyone laughed at me. Good times, good times.

    Super cute socks! And I love the color of your skirt. :)

  3. hahaha my fashion sense back in the day was pretty horrible as well, but it's better late than never! i love how you updated your band tee! i think band tees paired with cute skirts are adorable and you should definitely show off more of your collection! i love your socks too!

  4. i love how you matched those socks with the shoes. it looks so cute.

    and i used to be the band t-shirt kind of girl too. you dressed yours up very nicely though! you look great =]

  5. My goodness, my sister's friend (who is also a fashion blogger) and I were talking about our tragic tweens and early teens. If it makes you feel any better she wore fishnets and combat boots to a Michelle Branch concert. In middle school was anti-black clothing. I wore anything obnoxiously colored including pink, purple and orange polk a dotted converse and a hefty collection of paul frank t-shirts!

  6. eeek the socks are perfect! sweet outfit!

  7. Funny-- I was looking at my old pictures from high school and laughed/cringed at nearly every single one.

    Isn't it strange though how a friend can recall a memory, something you completely forgot about, and then you can remember every detail, everything about that memory?

  8. btw the top and skirt is a great combination , i am following , will be back for fashion fix :)

  9. Okay, glad you gave the sock a mention at the end. I was reading the outfit description and was like, "THE SOCKS, MISSY, YOU FORGOT THE SOCKS!" Love them. I almost feel like I should road trip to SF and conduct a scavenger hunt for them! Love those socks, need them in my life!
