Back2Life Style Journey Thursday


Back 2 Life Back to Reality…

Hey Lovelies welcome to Back2Life Style Journey. You can escape reality for a few minutes while you dive into this read. Haha! Well friends today we journey back 30s year (weird to say that I’m sure I’m dating many of you my apologies). The style of the 90s will forever we a subject of study I feel like in the fashion world. Some will argue WHY? While others will find it a unique, dope, inspirational fashion trend although rebellious. No matter what side you take styles resurface and recycle all the time and the baggie style of the 90s is bond to come back. SURPRISE it’s here! Yup 2020-2021s new trend centers around baggie clothes, which, honestly it makes sense since we don’t go anywhere nowadays. Before I tell you about the new trend I want to look at what made the “baggies 90s” hot in the first place.


The 90s




The 80s was all about flashy trends with its bright colors, big hair, and stand out accents whereas the 90s was all about minimalist fashion. The grunge alternative rock music made the unkempt look more mainstream. Casual chic included T-shirts, hoodies, jeans, and sneakers. Grunge fashion consisted more of flannel shirts, ripped jeans, Doc Martens, combat boots, bands t-shirts, oversized knit sweaters, long and droopy skirts, ripped tights, hiking boots, and eco-friendly clothing made from recycled textiles or fair-trade organic cotton.

Perhaps it was appealing due to its simplicity and convenience. Or perhaps it was the rebellious nature that came with the musical icons of the time. Either way the 90s was about putting on something fun and easy.


The Comeback



Without a doubt the 90s had some of the most comfortable clothes. Baggie clothes and the unkept look is something all to familiar right now and ITS TRENDING! This new way of living and working has made us throw out all things uncomfy and unnecessary. Bye bye slim, skinny jeans, and anything too restricting. Make way for the baggy cut denim star of 2021. Why, simple it’s ultra-wide legs, it offers absolute comfort without giving up on style. Even celebrities have been spotted sporting this such as Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin-Bieber. This new baggy cut is making a splash in the fashion world and comes in a variety of shapes, colors, and materials. 2021 promises to bring back others 90s trends such as T-shirts, loose shirts, and hoodies but reinterpreted in 2021 style, ultimately more feminine, softer, and less showy. The new emphasis will be on fabric with softer shades, delicate and refined textiles. Since, fashion has been looking back at the 90s decade for inspiration. On the runway thus far, brands like Saint Laurent, Off-White, Gucci, and Prabal Gurung rediscovered the era’s biggest trends from grunge to velvet, silky pastel slips and biker shorts.






I’d rock all of these styles once we are able to be back out and about but for now I’ll stick to pajamas with the occasional nice top for Zoom. Haha

Coffee Recommendations

Eclectic Hills


A secret blend and region, a dark roast formulated to hold up with milk and steam for espressos, lattes, and mochas. This high brow blend of intense dark cocoa and dark brown sugar will certainly impress Lady Catherine de Bourgh of Rosings!
