#nevertooold: the button up mini

Since when did turtlenecks and mini skirts become something solely meant for the teenage set??? Because that's exactly what my 9 year old daughter told me when she accompanied me to the dressing room to try on a few things.

Kaloka. Haha

That just made me want to buy it more. :P

And so I did, in 3 colors.

I guess it's also because I found it super refreshing after spending a couple of years in ultra minimalist normcore blacks and whites...

My transition was pretty slow in awkward baby steps...and I think I'm still transitioning and I also think I will still go back to normcore for lazy days but it's always nice to change things up a bit once in awhile.

70s mini street style
And this 70s fashion trend was pretty hard for me to resist because the normcore 90s and the hippie/mod '65-'75s are somewhat related for me.

I grew up in the 90s during the height of the grunge era so I wore the Doc Martens, ripped jeans, flannel, the whole shebang but more than fashion, it was the music that always got to me and fashion was just a way of expressing myself...

easy half bun
Best eras in music for me are the 90s and those produced during the years 1965-75. As a teenager, I always felt like I was born in the wrong decade because I really really really wanted to experience the original Woodstock and be part of the San Francisco scene.

So I guess that's why I'm torn between the 2. One thing I'll probably never do are shoulder pads. haha

i love the top, it looks very comfy + it goes very well with the skirt. i am not too fond of wearing skirts, but this looks like something i'd be comfortable in.
