believe when i say...

I want it thaat way.

Oh ya know, just listening to some Millenium.  Old school BSB, no big thing.  It's sad, I mean I totally love classic rock, but when I finally get around to teaching myself guitar the first thing I want to learn is the intro to 'I Want It That Way'.  I'm not even ashamed of it.  So catchy and so representative of my formative years.  What on earth do middle schoolers have playing at their dances these days??  I'm pretty sure the boy band era was the greatest time to be 10-14... but maybe I'm biased.  All I know is that I will have to introduce my future children to the wonderful music of the late 90s.  The music of the 60s and 70s really stands the test of time, so my parents didn't have to worry about that, but I feel like I'm going to have to coax them to love the guilty indulgences of my adolescence.  Not just the pop stuff either, hello, think Jay-Z and Blink-182 (hyphens were cool in the 90s).

Actually, you'd think this stream of consciousness has nothing to do with my outfit, but you'd be wrong.  I definitely got that blue, floral dress when I was in middle school.  Well played 12 year-old Melina, well played.

yellow scarf: Marshalls, cardigan: PacSun, belt: Forever 21, dress: throwback from the BSB era, booties: Aldo Hilovsky, necklace: Target



  1. Your necklace is so cool!! It looks like ancient coins. I really like how the belted scarf looks, too- I was rocking that the other day because I'd gotten the idea from a blogger. This is why blogging is so much fun!! :P

    Haha- so true about BSB.. Those days were awesome. There were so many things around for kids, but nowadays, I really wonder what the kids do and listen to for fun!
