What I Wore: 90's Baby, Millennium Kid

17:00

It's really weird how I don't keep up with the outside world. Much. I don't listen to the latest songs, I don't know a lot of celebrities, I don't keep up with politics and I don't know who the hell Apostle Suleiman is.

To top things off, I only just realized, last year, that the term "Millennial" was trending. 



It's such a controversial topic though. What with millennials not wanting to be identified as a group but as individuals and of course, the stereotypical conclusion that millennials feel entitled and are generally lazy.


I'll be honest. Whilst I generally am not in tune with my generation, I will say that I quite love the freedom afforded us. The freedom to live, the freedom to be. 

Our generation (generation Z) has literally changed the fashion world. I'll just leave it that because we know how. Let me know how you think we've changed the world (Ha Ha) in the comments. 


My style may be retro but I really don't think it would generally be seen as socially acceptable back in the day. Being a free spirit, I'm quite happy with our state of mind.

But of course, as with all things, there will always be extremists. Like feminists who don't wear bras. Not because they don't feel like, but to make a statement to the people (men) who created the contraption. Hardy har har.


People are who they are. Yes, environmental factors will always be key but at the core, at our very cores, we are who we are.

I'm a millennial. I'm hardworking, I don't remember what a landline looks like and I'm all for individualism.


OUTFIT DETAILS:


Top: 7th Avenue
Shorts: Thrifted
Bracelet: Accessories Mall
Sandals: Gifted
Belt: Came with this skirt

    I love this post and the fact that it's sounds like a social commentary only you are taking an individualistic approach. Definitely looking forward to reading more.
    On a less related issue I love your hair,I'm currently transitioning #naturalhairgang and my hair is a sponge bob situation rn and I have been feeling rather discouraged but after seeing this post I'm definitely encouraged to continue the process.
    I love your outfit and it's no secret that I love your style too.
    P.S-I also took the test and I scored a ninety six percent too.
