Throwback Thursdays
The Side Ponytail

It's time for my favorite link-up everrr!

I'm takin' it back to the old school
'Cause I'm an old fool, who's so cool
If you wanna get down, I'ma show you the way
Whoomp, there it is! Lemme hear ya say...

your hosts:
Jennifer from Sweet Southern Wife

and your fabulous co-host

Today, I'm taking you back to elementary school.

I was in the fourth grade.

It was the 80s.

So, of course, I was rockin' a side ponytail.


I mean, will you take a look at that thing.

I'm pretty sure my mom braided my damp hair the night before

then put the madness in a side pony,

for picture day nonetheless.

{And game day. Go Hawks!}

Thanks, Mom.

It's another successful Throwback Thursday because of you.

I need to head to my grandparents and dig out the pictures rocking the side pony and crimped hair. I was 8 &pretty sure acid wash jeans were involved.

The side pony was one of my favorite things to rock. Along with my colored high top reeboks.

Oh, but that's cute! I loved side ponytails when I was a kid, and I don't have the "it was the 80s" excuse to fall back on! Then again, in the early 90s in Spain, half the cartoons airing on TV were American shows from the 80s. That may have influenced me a bit.

Am I seriously a week behind in reading? I suck.

I loooove this picture! How old are you here? I LOVED braiding my hair the night before to get it all "curly" for the next day.

I gotta admit, sometimes I wear a low side pony. I can't quit the 90s.

Oops, just read 4th grade. Again, I suck.
