going back in time


So, I've seen this challenge on some Finnish blogs and it's basically asking you to create and wear an outfit that consists of items that are at least five years old. Apparently, five years ago, in 2008, was when most of the "popular" (fashion) blogs started and this is to look back to that and all that jazz. Obviously, my lil' blog didn't exist back then, even though I was an avid blog reader. And also obviously, a lot of my clothes are vintage or handed down from family members, which would make the challenge less than easy for me. What I have done, though, is pimping the challenge up a bit and recreating some of my earliest outfits that have been on the blog. I thought it was fun, and it's funny, yet not surprising, how most of the items I used are still part of my wardrobe.

This one was my first post, as well as my first outfit post. The only garment I still own is the coat, but it's in Finland as I don't really need a coat so warm in Leeds. I'd still absolutely wear it! This wasn't too long ago, only 2010, but I imagined my style would've changed more. So much has changed since then, but apparently I knew what I liked to wear already. I do wear dresses and skirts more often now than a couple of years ago, but most of the outfits I've looked back at don't even make me want to cringe. If they were from 2008 they might..

This is kind of different, but I hope it's not too weird. An 18-year-old Laura and I wish you a lovely rest of the weekend♥!

I don't think my style has really changed in the last 10 years? Maybe ever (ok, when I was little I wore a lot of floral leggings which I definitely wouldn't wear now!)...I have pants that I bought 10 years ago and other pieces of clothing.

Love the coat! You don't need a coat so warm in Leeds? Are you mental? It's freezing here!
