1. Anything ‘Aztec’ or ‘Navajo’.
I keep seeing these
Indian Native American print skirts and such on Pinterest. I just can’t. I think it’s because they remind me too much of that summer trip out West when I was 12 years old and we bought a lot of stuff that looked like this:
2. Mint green nails.
I know, I know. The Jenns and Angèles are groaning at how utterly unhip I am. I think it looks so cute on them, but looks like mold on me. Sorry kids, no can do. (BTW, Pinterest has loads of mint nails with Aztec designs. Double no.)
3. High waisted shorts or pants.
I have a two-year old. If I were to slide on a pair of high-waisted anything, they would legitimately and immediately become Mom Jeans. That’s a big deedet waaye, my friends.
This isn’t really a coolness issue as much as I feel like, adorable as it is, it will SCREAM ‘early 2010s’ in a few years. And I have enough dated clothing in my closet already, thankyouverymuch.
This one I’m going to blame on pure laziness. I’ve seen plenty of how-to articles on how to color-block or putting together an amazing color-block ensemble. The truth is that I’d rather flip the page and read about that recipe for one-pot pasta where all the veggies cook with the noodles.
6. Ombre hair.
And that pretty much sums it up. Plus, how ridiculous would my pixie cut looked ombre-ed? Maybe I should consider gradient color instead. You know, brunette in the front, blonde in the back. Like the Mullet for 2013.
What about you? Anything you’ve seen around that you just can’t bring yourself to try?
