going back in time, pt. 8

Blazer&Shorts - H&M
Shoes - 2nd hand/Skopunkten
Scarf - Mama's old
Bag - Stolen off mama

I wish I could've recreated this outfit properly and gone to Edinburgh! Looking back at all these old outfits and posts has made me miss Scotland so much more than I usually do. Honestly, I think about going back so often. I mean, I'm glad of staying at Leeds and I love it, but I really do miss Edinburgh and love it (more).

Anyway, other than the bag, which is the one I gave to my mum, and the shoes, that I wore out in less than a year, everything else is still in good use! (Well, the bag is in good use too, but not by me. And it's as if we had done a bag swap with mama, as I now have hers, haha!) I think that the top I was wearing has either been sold or lost or thrown out. I'm not sure because I'm not too certain if I know which top I was wearing.. I used to wear this H&M blazer every day, but recently it has been replaced by the one that used to be my grandma's. I still wear this one occasionally, but the cut and the over-sizedness of the grandma blazer is something that I like better these days. And I even tried to recreate my weird grinny Chinese face, haha!

This is the last one of my "Going back in time" -posts. All in all, I don't think my style has changed too much. I prefer certain things that I perhaps didn't like so much a couple of years ago, but I still have most of the things I wore back then. (I kind of wish I could go on our old computer back at my mum's and do this again, but with outfits from ~7+ years ago. If I happen to go to Finland some time soon, I'll try and save them from the crashed ol' computer, who knows what gems I'll find. Honestly, I used to wear such weird&wonderful things. My brother's over-sized jeans, lacey slips, sweater vests...) What about you, could you see yourself in the same outfits that you wore a few years ago? Or dare you even think of those from 7-10 years ago?

I love that you wore an outfit that you wore a long time ago! It looks amazing on you still! I visited Edinburgh not too long ago and it was lovely. It is a very long trip to get there for me but it was worth it to see! I think I could wear an outfit that I wore 10 years ago, I still have lots of my clothing from at least 10 years ago and it looks great!
