Fashion Throwback [Woman in a Romper]

Christina in marching band | Christina's Best Life

FOUND FOOTAGE: The only digital photographic evidence that confirms I was in band. The marching band story is not a cover up, folks.

The Back Story
In August I had the honor of being a bridesmaid at my friend Maria’s wedding. I met her in high school when I was a freshman and she was a sophomore. We both played trumpet in the marching band.

We shared a cabin at band camp in the summer of 2003 and became friends within the week. She nicknamed me gremlin. (I’d like to think it’s because I was [and still am] adorable and small, not because I resembled a reptile-like monster.)  Since then, our friendship has been one of the most authentic connections I’ve experienced.

Maria looked beautiful on her wedding day, and her twins made adorable flower girls. The parts I most enjoyed were catching up with old friends at the reception and dancing the night away in my fuchsia flip flops.

Woman in a Romper
Today’s fashion throwback features the army-green romper I wore to the rehearsal and dinner the night before the wedding. I’m disappointed I haven’t featured this outfit sooner. However, I think it’s a look that could still be worn going into fall, especially here in Nashville since it’s still in the 70s and 80s.

Outtakes
Actually, this post is really about all the silly pictures of me in this outfit. It was not my finest modeling effort.
