I jumped on the big shoulder trend back in the spring. I bought the shirt from ZARA and loved the contrast of the casual t-shirt with the drama of the shoulder pads and the sequins. Unfortunately, the shoulder pads on top of my already sizable shoulders gave me the physique of a linebacker (not the look I was going for.) So, a few days ago, I decided to cut the shoulder pads off and voila! So much more wearable and flattering!
The remains. RIP linebacker look!
Zara t-shirt, Paige denim cutoffs (a Nordstrom Rack find!), Martin & Osa snakeskin sandals, Prada mini backpack circa 2001.
I was thrilled to see that backpacks (think dainty, not sporty) are coming back in style! I used to carry this backpack around to classes almost 10 years ago (oh gosh, has it really been that long?) when I was in college. So what if my books didn't fit inside? At least I looked cute! ;) I used to sell a lot of my old bags on ebay so I'm glad I had the foresight to save this one. Especially as a mom on the go, carrying a backpack and being hands free sounds very appealing!
What did you save from back in the day that you are totally loving now?
