Rompers and Railroads: A Walk Down Memory Lane

I remember way back yonder in the late 1990’s walking along these very same railroad tracks. It was the summer of ’99 and times were so much simpler. Before Facebook when you accepted friends in person, prior to Craigslist killers and when a ‘tweet’ was just a sound a bird made. These were the days before the cast of “Jersey Shore” disgraced our flatscreens and when a teenage girl could carry her baby brother down the sidewalk without people assuming she was a wannabe MTV “Teen Mom.”
During the Summer of ’99 I worried about the upcoming school year. Would I be able to fail every Chemistry test and still pass the class? Yes & Yes. Would I learn to master my little manual Honda Accord? Barely. Would I have my first kiss? Nope.
Moving on. The point of this post is to reminisce summer & try new trends. Stores are already stocked with Fall apparel so we have a month to enjoy summer ’11 and wear your favorite trends before they’re gone!

    love the brightness of the romper. i’ve done all the summer trends minus the florals. i’m gonna keep rocking the bright polish through fall too!

  2. fifi says:

    what a great suitcase! and from grandma all the more sweet to cherish!! i cannot believe summer is coming to and end… i had just picked up a few summer wedges before i sprained my toes it is killing me having them sit there while i am browsing boots for fall!!! xo

  3. Bobbi says:

    That’s a cute romper! Too bad it’s not more comfortable for you.
    The only trend I’ve done this summer is the bright polish. Sadly the fashions here in Utah suck! And I’d rather shop in person than online.

  4. Gina says:

    I simply ADORE this outfit! And what gorgeous photos! And I love reminiscing the old days.

    And I totally need a nice pair of wedges for the summer–good thing they probably are on sale!

    xo, gina

  5. Arrow says:

    walking down a railway track with a cute suitcase is sooo cool!

  6. Leeann @ Join the Gossip says:

    You are so beautiful! Loving these photos – they are adorable!

    I stumbled into a summer trend recently that I never thought I’d be up for: rompers. I hate them actually, but when I saw one for $7 at H&M I tried it on and fell in love. Now I just need to actually wear it :)

  7. Living_in_aShoe says:

    wow, your romper is so beautiful!

  8. freyja says:

    love this picture, so bright and fun :)

  9. The PvdH Journal says:

    Oh wow The Summer of ’99… Eek! I was 13, and remember it all so well. Crazy stuff how you just made me take a trip down memory lane!

    Loving this romper on you, and the photos look so professional!


  10. Lisa says:

    i loveeee the trends this summer!! maxi dresses, bright colors, colorblocking, rompers LOVE THEM ALL!!

    this romper is GORGEOUS on you dale!!! but then again.. when you look like barbie IRL you could wear a potato sack and still look hot ;p

  11. Paulina Mo says:

    Love your wedges! I need to check out that place when I go to the OC!

    I wanted to try the crop top trend, but I was waiting to get in superb shape, that didn’t happen! ha ha ha…


  12. Liesl says:

    Thanks for the comment on my blog… def don’t use the Latisse… it will ruin your pretty blue eyes :( Hopefully they will come out with a new formula that doesn’t change eye color!


  17. Kallie, Happy Honey and Lark says:

    I love your nostalgic walk down the tracks, and really those photos are stunning. Your outfit is stylish, but you wear it so well!

  18. Jay says:

    you look great, and that’s some night lighting you’ve got there. shame the railtracks aren’t being used anymore…

  19. Mimi says:

    awww, that’s right, we should really wear all the trends we want to wear before new ones come in. your romper is so pretty btw, and you look fantastic! :D

    <3, Mimi

  20. Tanvi says:

  21. Bravoe Runway says:

    I really love this outfit and this post! I remember thinking those same things before going back to school and I struggled with Chem as well! The romper is beautiful as well as the suitcase and it is unique idea to photograph by the railroad!

  22. Bree says:

    I seriously still need rompers! -_-
    Yours is fab! It’s so vibrant, it cheers me up!

    Oh gosh, I love railroad tracks and trains! Such a perfect location for a photoshoot lol.

  54. Sarah says:

    You look beautiful in the pictures, I love the playsuit. I liked reading you reminisce about your childhood, and I could definitely relate to the not having the first kiss and failing chemistry. I don’t really wear clothes because they’re on trend, but because I like them – but you said floral prints and I like those so I’ll go with them :-).



  55. Nadja says:

  77. What Sadie Did says:

    Ahh summer 99 was great! And how Facebook has TOTALLY changed so much since then – we don’t get Craigslist in NZ or the UK so i’m not sure what it is, but it sounds like I might have to go Google it right now as Im intrigued!

    I love that vintage suitcase, it is such a treasure. And I love romper suits (they’re just about do-able with my not so slender legs!) but find them SO annoying at bathroom time!
