Summer is the perfect time to spruce up your wardrobe and try something new! This summer season, fashion seems to be heavily influenced by the best time period ever; the 90s. With soft grunge looks and the whole “ugly/pretty” style coming back, we can be confident that we will be cute and comfortable, with a cool edge this summer. So grab a pen or pencil and get ready to jot down some notes on these five hot summer trends to look out for this summer that are sure to have you looking like the perfect 90s queen you know you are.


1. Mom Jeans

Don’t let the name fool you, these jeans are not only reserved for you mom! This style of jeans first made their debut in the early 90s when ladies decided they were through with the tight pants of the 80s and desired a more loose fit at the bottom. These iconic, super high-waisted, slightly baggy jeans blew up during the 90s and they have crept their way back into our closets. If you are itching to tap into your 90s mom side this summer try styling a pair with a simple tank top or short sleeved top, a cool belt, and a sleek pair of sandals or sneakers.

2. Scrunchies

For some unknown reason the scrunchie became extremely popular in the late 80s and remained popular for most of the 90s. This fabric covered hair elastic was invented in 1987 by Rommy H. Revson who was house-sitting when this genius idea struck her. The hair accessory was eventually refered to as the “Scrunchie” seeing as the fabric would “scrunch up” when you put it in your hair. Well get excited again ladies because these cute little hair accessories are back in full force. Go nuts this summer and jazz up your boring old pony tail with a born-again classic!

3. Choker Necklaces

Choker necklaces were around long before the 1990s, as they were actually worn by women of ancient civilizations, however the necklace took over the 90s in many ways. From the classic choker that made a resurgence in the early 90s, to the gothic fashion statement in the mid-90s, and finally to those beloved tattoo chokers most popular in the late 90s that even I can remember fondly. Now these neck-hugging beauties have made a comeback once again just in time for summer. For a modern twist on an old classic, try opting for a delicate chain choker layered with other necklaces or go for a classic black choker for a more edgy vibe.

4. Denim Skirts

Denim skirts of all shapes and sizes were very popular in the 90s. From long floor length denim skirts, to super short, scandalous denim skirts, the 90s saw them all. Now a denim skirt is a classic you can thank the hippies of the 1960s for as they invented this new style by recycling their old jeans and turning them into long denim skirts. Now I don’t recommend a long denim skirt on a hot summer day but a nice mid length one with some cute detailing is the perfect new piece to amp up your summer wardrobe.

5. Crop Tops

Crop tops “popped up” majorly in 90s pop culture. 90s icons such as Britney Spears and Cher Horowitz seemed to effortlessly pull off numerous different crop top looks that made us common folk swoon over their fashion sense. Since then crop tops have been in and out of style but have made a major comeback within the past year and a half it seems. Crop tops are a perfect summer staple that can help you stay cool and look great. This summer, try pairing your favorite crop top with some mom jeans and a choker necklace for a totally tubular 90s throwback look with a modern twist.

To The Senior Graduating High School In A Month

"What feels like the end, is often the beginning."

It wasn’t too long ago that I was in your shoes. Just a little over a year ago, I was the senior that had a month left. One month left in the hometown that I grew up in. One month left with the friends that I didn’t want to leave. One month left in the place that I had called “my school” for the past four years. You are probably thinking the same things I thought whenever it came down to only 30 days left. You’re probably scared, nervous, worried, or anxious. Maybe you’re like me and are dying to get out of high school, ready to start a new chapter. Or maybe you aren’t so ready yet. Maybe you’re wishing for a little more time.

As scary as it is, this month you have left will fly by. You’ll blink and you’ll be standing in your cap and gown, waiting for your name to be called to receive your diploma. You’ll look back on your last four years at your school and wonder why time went by so fast. It’ll be bittersweet. However, trust me when I say that you have so much to look forward to. You are about to begin taking the steps to build your future. You are going to grow and learn so much more than any high school class could teach you. You are going to meet amazing people and accomplish amazing things. So, as scared as you might be, I encourage you to take that first step out of your comfort zone and face this world head on. Chase your dreams and work towards your goals. You are smart. You are brave. You are capable of achieving amazing things. All your life, the lessons you have learned have prepared you for this point in your life. You are more than ready.

There are times when you will feel alone, scared, or confused. There are times when it won’t always be easy. But those are the times when you will shine the most because I know you will work through whatever problems you may face. Don’t think of the bad times as a terrible thing. Use them all as learning experiences. As author Joshua Marine once said, “Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.”

You might think that this is the end. However, it’s not. This is only the beginning. Trust me when I say that the adventures and opportunities you are about to face are nothing compared to high school. Whether you are going to college, going to work, or something else, this is the beginning of your journey called life. It will be exciting, it will be terrifying, but it will all be worth it.

So, as you walk out of your high school for the very last time, I encourage you to take a deep breath. Relax. You’ll always have the memories to look back on from high school. But your time is now, it begins today. Embrace it.

To My Ruined Favorite Pair of Jeans

We had a good run.

19

Every girl has a pair of jeans that they love more than any other. They have a perfect combination of fit, style, and comfort.

And due to that overwhelming awesomeness from that pair of jeans, we seem to wear them a bit more often than our other pairs, which usually means they wear out faster than our other pairs.

Its a special kind of sad day when you realize your go-tos are no longer wearable. Jeans can be expensive, and sometimes you have to face the fact that you will not be able to create your signature looks right away anymore.

So here is to you, and your favorite jeans.

Embrace, and cherish, the days of them always being in your drawer whenever you need them. Relish in the times that you can put them on after you had washed them and they fit a little better than the time before. Use the pockets you have stretched out to the perfect size for all of your stuff, and wear them with your favorite shoes even if you think you have worn that look one too many times.

Wear them to class, to a club, to dinner with your friends. Make the most of their versatility, allowing you to be comfortably cute whenever you need or want to be. Wear them with heels and with sneakers. Look in the mirror and smile as they perfectly fit your curves. These jeans were made for you.

Some goodbyes are harder than others, and jeans, while replaceable, have a special place in the heart of some girls. It may seem silly and ridiculous (and we know it is), but the confidence boost from your perfect pair of jeans is unmatched.

Love all the times you've had in those jeans and the events you've been able to wear them to. And when it is time for a new pair, it just means it's time to find a new go-to!
