Thirty-one going on thirteen

Wearing this oversized checked shirt takes me back to my early teens and the grunge uniform of the early 1990s. Now I'm just missing the Doc Martens, angst and acne of those days! Okay, admittedly the acne has lingered a bit ;)

It's nice to reminisce about my youth and feel like a teenager again in clothes similar to what I wore then. Perhaps I should revisit those DM boots too, although I think I'd miss out the bright coloured shoelaces that my friends and I used to add to them back in the nineties! Is there anything you wore at secondary school that you'd wear again now, or do you think the trends of your teens should strictly be left to the next generation?

This shirt is from Zara, the dress underneath is H&M.

I'm linking with Fashion Friday:


  1. Love that plaid shirt, totally takes me back to 6th form and I want one now! You look beautiful x

  2. Thanks for linking up to #fashionfriday too x

  3. Looks like such a casual comfortable outfit!

    There are so many trends I'm glad I tried in high school when it was more socially acceptable to look silly, as many of them I'd never be brave enough to try again now, haha!

    Away From The Blue

  4. I love skinny jeans but tend to go for black instead of the acid green or fluorescent orange of my teens! Sadly my skinnies are no longer a skinny size 6!!


I love reading your comments, so please do share your thoughts! x
