It’s back

It’s no secret that styles and trends rotate every now and then, but there are ones that make a comeback when you least expect it. Without trying to sound old here, in my day collecting pins and patches were something we did as kids and even as teenagers. Like with the rest of fashion these statement accessories were how we expressed ourselves. From our favourite bands to our favourite slogans, there was something for everyone’s interest.

As I was digging through an old box filled with some of my earlier-hood memories I was surprised about the almost forgotten pieces. Besides getting to use some of my favourite pins and patches from my collection again I couldn’t help but feel a sense nostalgia. There’s been a noticeable trend for these fun accessories all over social media and it’s not even the kids or teens who are wearing them.

Sometimes as adults we’re scared to have fun with our wardrobe or dare not experiment with a style we may admire from afar. Since I’ve always been lucky enough to express myself through my style without restrictions I can’t see why not to make it a point to add in some of your personality into your everyday look. I get that some work environments don’t make it easy, so if all else fails you have your weeknights or weekends to really let loose with fun!

    Hey Stacey! Justo también quiero hacer un post de esto porque veo que los pins (chapas) y parchas están por todos lados: en chaquetas, bolsos, camisetas. ¡Han vuelto! La verdad era una de mis cosas preferidas en la infancia.

    No sé si es algo que vaya a pasar muy pronto de moda, pero espero que no porque me encanta.

    Amo como customizaste tu chaqueta 😀
