Throwback Thursday: That Time I Wore Vests

1990s fashion, vests, Jamie Allison Sanders, first day of school, BTS, back to school clothes
In the mid 1990s, I went through a phase where I was obsessed with vests. I mean it -- I wore them ALL. THE. TIME. Denim, houndstooth, floral ... you name it, I had a vest with it.

The photo above was taken on my first day of high school. I was so, so, SO excited about this outfit. The bright pink T-shirt perfectly complemented the pink of the floral pattern in the vest, and the brightness was offset by my black denim shorts. I remember painstakingly putting this outfit together at least a week before school started and just looking forward to wearing it so much.

Also, can we please discuss the fact that at this point in my life, I didn't realize that flat irons existed? Ah, the life before being a beauty blogger.

I should probably be embarrassed about this outfit now, but I'm just not. Maybe I've grown out of my vest phase (thank goodness), but this one just brought me so much joy at the time that I can't hate it today.

What trends from the past did you rock that you look back on with either fondness or embarrassment (or both!) now? Let me know in the comments!

  2. I loved vests too. I have a couple of artist-designed vests that I just can't part with. I know the trend will be back because what goes around comes around or whatever the saying is

  3. It's so fun to look back on older pictures and wonder what you were thinking at the time. Haha. I definitely had my share of vests in the early 90's. Who didn't?!

  12. I'm going to skew the comments backward in time with a definite fondness for my tight jeans with classic flares at the bottom. Loved those jeans.
