Ventured back to Buffalo this past weekend to hang with the 'rents and briefly revert back to being a high school kid. "Growing up" has been quite an experience to say the least.

Here's how I wish I dressed in high school, which is like how my cousin dressed in high school (this is grungier than her, but she's 8 years older and actually experienced the 90's, so I'm assuming here). I nearly lost my mind when I saw the eye print on this set. Eyes, as we have learned, are, like, my favorite thing, so now that I can wear a million pairs of 'em, I'm content (but am I ever?). Wearing things inspired by eras I wasn't really cognizant for is always a funny thing, but I guess it's a form of reverting back to playing dress-up in my mom's closet in the end.

I also brushed my hair out for shits 'n giggles, which is something I haven't done for- get this- 6 years. I love how HUGE it gets! Okay, it's a little silly, but I got a kick out of it.

But back to the important issues. This summer is my last before I have to, like, graduate and become a person. This past weekend I found myself back in my high school bedroom, looking out my window, and just gazing out at the corner I shot these photos on. For the first time, I felt really, truly grateful that my parents moved us upstate and away from the city. I never would have started this blog, and I never would have known what it was like to have a backyard, or a goal that would take me places. School starts back up in 2 weeks, so this is what has been on my mind.

Excuse me while I get something to clean up this sap.

  5. I grew up on Robie (across from Sister's) and your pictures of Parkside have been making me hella homesick. I live in Europe now and while that's all fine and good, there are not a lot of things I love more than Parkside and Buffalo in the summer. It's a good place to make dreams.

  6. Great print on that top and skirt. I love your hair brushed out too.

  7. Looking back at our childhood from a distance is a funny thing. I've been doing that a lot lately by visiting what used to be home. It's nice when we can come back to the haunts of our youth with a separation from who we used to be in our youth and the maturity of growing up. Loving the grungy 90s look!


  8. Since I was hanging with your rents the day the movers arrived in North Buffalo I am happy to hear that you think fondly now about such a big change in your life. Mitchell was much more open about his feelings, a NYC dog with his own yard in Buffalo, no wonder he was rolling around on his back, paws up in glee, having found the one spot on the lawn where something had died to wiggle in, he was a happy guy! Home isn't so much a place but a state of mind. Mitchell knew that, even at my house or camp Elwood. We won't mind if you do a cartwheel or two on the lawn when you feel the urge. Mavis will help!

  9. Are you graduating already? wow - I remember reading this blog and you announcing that you had gotten into college. I think that was back in the Faboo days. congratulations, my dear, it's fun to continue on this journey with you.

  10. You Don't understand anything. Your parent expects you to marry a rich man like a good little girl. How is learning anything about opinion knowledge?
