i’m wearing: f21 multicolor tunic, abercrombie & fitch jeans, old navy sweater vest, vince camuto booties, shopbop clutch, f21 necklace, stella & dot bracelet, thrifted beaded bracelet, vintage ring and michael kors watch.

um, these jeans are from at least 10 years ago. and they are from abercrombie & fitch. please tell me that i am not the only one who went through an a&f stage. there was also a time in my life that i wore tiny t-shirts that said embarrassing things like “i’m on the list” and “i never give out my number on the first cocktail”. i actually still have both of them…lol. now you see…this is why i am in danger of becoming a hoarder…if you keep clothes long enough, you will probably wear them again (case in point…the jeans in this post and these shoes).

wait…i just thought of something….i STILL wear shirts that say embarrassing things on them. only now they say dorky “mom” quotes. poor eep. some things never change. but for the record, i LOVE this shirt! =)

    This post totally made me laugh because I definitely went through that AF stage – and I’m pretty sure I still have those jeans πŸ™‚ Ahh, the smell of AF brings back memories!

    Haha – I love that shirt, too! I have the StyleMint one that says, “No is a full sentence” πŸ™‚ Yes, I went through an A&F stage, but I got rid of my denim cutoffs a few years ago because they were like Daisy Duke short!

    Definitely had too many shirts with phrases on them a few years ago. Hate when I see myself wearing them in a photo or something! I like this look on you, very ’70s vibe! That pattern on that top is great, too.

    Been there too. OMG. I still have ONE A&F shirt…but only because hubs gifted it to me when we were dating. It has holes in it but I can’t throw it away. lol

    Jenn, you are cracking me up!! I still have my Abercrombie shirts from 10 years ago and I was a senior in HS! Crazy. I wore one on my first date with my husband 4 years ago that says “Drink, Dance and Be Blonde”. My favorite one that I work out in is “Blondes Don’t Pay Cover”. Oh Lord! It could be worse, you could have one from Wet Seal that reads “I Love Glittery Vampires”.

    I still have a couple A&F tees kicking around, with sayings like “sotally tober” lol I’m glad I’m not the only one …

    I definitely had a few of those embarrassing shirts. I still have one that says Farmers Like To Do It In The Dirt. I don’t know why I still have it but I do. I don’t think there is anything wrong from keeping jeans especially when they fit as well as those do. I like the look!

    I can honestly say, I never went through the AF and graphic tee phase. I must have always had old lady taste! I think these jeans look fantastic on you, and if they fit why not keep wearing them! I just bought those floral pants from your last post! You are the 2nd blogger I’ve seen them on πŸ™‚ I think they look fab on you!

    This was hilarious.
    I definitely keep clothes…for a long time. There are some items that I will never part with.
    At least you’re not wearing a trucker hat in these photos :/

    i love how your hair waves in the wind on the first picture πŸ™‚
    although i can’t say i went through a&f phase (mainly because i grew up in europe without any a&f around, that’ll do it, haha) i did have a stupid quote shirt that went to goodwill last year after not having worn it in ages.
    have a great and good-looking day! πŸ™‚

    Omg i laughed so hard with your comment about silly little sayings on tops and things we keep for years, i rarely go for silly little sayings but when i was younger i had some t-shirts with cartoon logos…i got rid of them though.

    There’s nothing wrong with a little clothes hoarding! I have a hard time letting go, too…but you’re so right…it ends up coming back in style again!
