If you're an early or late 90s baby like me, you probably understand the reference to the title of this post. And if you're wondering how exactly I came up with that title, it's because this new outfit from Urban Outfitters totally makes me feel like Super Mario! I mean it's pretty obvious, all you need is a red top and denim overalls (and a mustache and red baseball cap with a "M" on it, which unfortunately I have neither). I'm almost all set for Halloween now!
I really feel like I jumped back into my childhood, around the late 90s and early 2000s. Super Mario and those other Nintendo games were the shit back then!
This is definitely one of my new favorite spring/summer outfits. It's so cute, fun, and allows me to embrace the child that is still within me! Just because you grow up and become more responsible and independent doesn't mean that you lose the kid at heart, or at least if you don't want to. In fact, being a kid at heart makes life so much more positive and upbeat. It's also helps to be nostalgic for your happiness. This outfit reminds me of when I would go to my grandparents' house in Lima as kid and play Super Mario 64 nonstop (mainly because I would try to make it up the never ending stairs, if you know what I'm referring to), that was definitely one of my favorite moments from my childhood. I love being nostalgic and remembering the good times!
Don't be afraid to let out your inner child, whether through fashion, personality or both. Whatever generation you come from, embrace it and let out your energetic mini you heart!
