Style Evolution

Hey guys! You're in for a special treat today... ugly old pictures of me. Ha.
I saw this cool feature on someone's blog. Here's a retrospective of my changing fashion sense as I grew up! Don't judge me.
 Kingergarden Rachel: I gotta say, my Mom is really the one who was dressing me at this time. I was born in 92, and I guess I was a product of the time. Lots of clashing prints and overalls and kitchy dresses. Sounds familiar, right? Check out that last picture. A windbreaker+printed leggings+hiking boots?
 Elementary School Rachel: Honestly, I dressed boring as hell in elementary school. I was dressing myself and it appears I was playing it safe. I remember wearing that purple shirt a LOT though.
 Middle School Rachel: Ok this is where it gets really embarrassing. Middle school is always the frumpy era, right? I seem to remember there being some pretty skinny girls in the 7th grade, but obvi I was not one of them! I wore the baggiest most unflattering stuff. Peasant skirts and hoodies all the way! Also Emma I am sorry this picture of you is now on the internet.
 Highschool Rachel: I wore a lot of blue jeans that I wrote on and converses. Mixing prints was my thing, and I layered everything up all the time. I used to get lots of compliments on my style in highschool, which I now think is weird.
College Rachel: Well, you know this stuff! I really held on to the whole mixing kitchy prints thing, but I like to think I look way classier now.

Hope you enjoyed it!


  1. This is such a fun idea! Great timeline. (and I too wore a lot of converse and jeans in high school...and wrote on them both)

  2. This is a really nice progression! The essence of your style was always there - it just bloomed as you got older.

  3. This post was great!! Such a good idea.

  4. I loved this post! I'd never imagine you used to wear Vans or that sort of shoes ahah :) xx

  5. I LOOOVE this, so fun seeing pictures of little you! I'd say your middle school style was pretty cool if you were daring & hip enough to wear converse w/ your fancy dress!

  6. Were you in band?!?! Me too ?!! I lov the high school rachel ones. I stared at the prom/homecoming pic for awhile honestly, I couldn't tell who was you. The little kid ones are adorable!

  7. At least your mom didn't match you with your sister...
