This outfit (and the title of this post) coming to you straight outta 1 9 7 8!

My mom bought this dress in her tiny hometown of Nurmes, Finland, for her graduation from nursing school. When I sent her one of these photos she texted me, "I ❤️ that dress 😊 It takes me back to December 1978 when I was forever 21!!!" Never change, mom! 

40 years later (!) I am so tickled by how perfectly on trend this dress is. It's also kinda alarming how precisely it fits me! I actually grew up playing dress-up in this, but recently realized how it's totally ready to wear. I only have a handful of items I've inherited/stolen from my mom, and each of them are so incredibly special to me. Even if 70's style fades out in the next couple years, I know I'll keep this dress forever. 

Seriously though RIP all the gems I remember my mom wearing and see in old family photos. I have literally said the sentence "Mom I would KILL someone for the peppermint striped jumpsuit in this picture" multiple times. My mom always says something like "oh I just got tired of it so I got rid of it." !!!

Kinda weird, but have you ever thought about clothing/shoes/accessories you want to keep forever and hand down to your children? It's an argument against cheaply made fast fashion for sure. There's always the chance that your kids will NOT be interested in anything you save, but honestly, fashion is so cyclical that you can bet if the item is classic enough, it WILL be back in style again. And you will be a hero! 

This dress is a statement, for sure, like when I got dressed this morning I was thinking DO I dare; but honestly the story behind it is so cool that I don't even care. 

I love the color palette in these photos so so SO much! This backdrop made the dress look even better, which I didn't think was possible. Even the grass looks vintage, doesn't it?

Tbh I am halfway to Mardi Gras already, in my heart anyway! We are headed down to New Orleans tomorrow afternoon and I am ridiculously excited. You would think I haven't been on a trip in FOR-EV-ER! That's what it feeeeels like. Feel free to follow along with my shenanigans on Twitter & Insta
