Your Style Then and Now: India Nicholas

Pret-a-surf bikini top / Melissa Odabash hat / Oasis jeans / Stella McCartney sandals / Chloe bag
"This picture is of me being a general exhibitionist. I was most likely running around my big backyard topless while my Dad planted bamboo. (I grew up in an enchanted forest - I was so lucky to have a Dad who loved to garden and would plant trees specifically for fort building.) He would take off his gardening bandanas and tie them around my tiny chest. Bra tops as outerwear! I was so on trend! 


That hat is also probably Dad's. When I was little, my parents would host croquet parties in the summer for their friends and this hat looks tailor made for one of those. The pants are something that my parents would call PARTY PANTS. Everyone in my family had a pair... (I think Dad had 3 at one point)... hammer style, elastic waist, really loud print. Truly, I would wear this exact outfit today." ~India Nicholas

Look at this tiny little human! India and I didn't know each other until high school, but we grew up just a few blocks apart. Now we both live in Brooklyn, and every time I see her it's like a big healthy shot of home. I had a lot of fun with this one (although I say that every time), especially because her "then" outfit was so on trend – she belongs at Coachella, right?
