Eye Candy

Younger Than Yesterday

The kind of day when you don’t wanna get called inside for dinner.

    I’ll be stating the obvious by saying that these photos are awesome, but I thought I might as well go ahead and say it – these photos are AWESOME.

  • Anjelica September 13th, 2011 3:11 PM

    Oh goodness, these are stunning. Really amazing.

  • Bren September 13th, 2011 3:21 PM

    I love the photo in front of the mirror.
    It reminds me of when I’m getting ready and my little sister watches me, fascinated for some bizarre reason. These are lovely.

  • Maca September 13th, 2011 3:25 PM

    So, so lovely, it’s like a still movie.

  • posie.rose September 13th, 2011 3:28 PM

    I totally know the feeling that these photos show. Totally lovely.

  • Stephanie September 13th, 2011 3:38 PM

    These pictures remind me of why I always wanted sisters. My mom grew up the oldest of five girls. I must make sure she sees these! They tell a great story.

  • Stephanie September 13th, 2011 3:39 PM

    Also the last pic, totally the best thing I have ever seen!

  • Alicia September 13th, 2011 3:40 PM

    I really love these photos, they just evoke a happy child-like quality.

  • Julie September 13th, 2011 3:43 PM

    The floral eye patch! I love it. These are so great.

  • Anna F. September 13th, 2011 3:45 PM

    I don’t always get along with my sister, but today she is coming to visit me – it’s the first time I’ll be seeing her in 3 months! (This is the longest we’ve ever been apart, except for the 15 months she was alive before me). I’m waiting for her to call me from the airport, and thought I’d kill some time on Rookie – how appropriate that these pictures are posted right now!

    They are quite beautiful. Where were they taken?

  • Rita Unicornia September 13th, 2011 3:52 PM

    this pictures are so cute love those outfits :O they are perfect!

    I’m 14 and I’ve got a blog called Rita Has A Blog, it’s about a girl who loves fashion and being a teen, but has a little problem… facing her own spelling! just to try and make an international blog…

    here’s the link:

  • anna hollow September 13th, 2011 3:52 PM

    Aw, Erica is the best! I love these!

  • Naomi September 13th, 2011 3:54 PM

    SUCH beautiful photos

  • milk princess September 13th, 2011 4:08 PM

    This reminds me so much of my when i was just a youngin’ :) I don’t have any sisters but when I was little, all the kids on my block were practically siblings..
    thank you so much, rookie. <3

  • Marguerite September 13th, 2011 4:34 PM

    I love these – my fav is #9 – they are adorable and the chicken makes me laugh :D but they make me miss my awesome college attending sister :(

  • littleDani September 13th, 2011 4:46 PM

    this makes me wish i was a kid again.

  • koolkat September 13th, 2011 4:48 PM

    These pictures are so beautiful! I don’t get on very well with my sister but these make me wish I did! I love the details–the necklace… the odd socks… the floral eyepatch… and of course that Mickey Mouse hat/headband thing! So awesome. I love Rookie because the pictures are always different to the norm and make me think about life :) This website rocks!

  • sparklz September 13th, 2011 5:32 PM

    Love the last pic!

  • Cruicked September 13th, 2011 5:35 PM

    Some of these are gorgeous!

  • Anaheed September 13th, 2011 5:39 PM

    I am OBSESSED with the little girl in the purple glasses. I think she is my spirit animal.

  • unicorn September 13th, 2011 5:46 PM

    the plaid shorts, the flower ones, the flower EYEPATCH!, the yellow laces…i wish i could wear them all at the same time all together. and… are those purple overalls? i want purple overalls!!!

  • Pashupati September 13th, 2011 5:55 PM

    Last picture is badass. Could be a movie poster.

  • Maialuna September 13th, 2011 6:00 PM

    I love these. SO much. I want that girl in the red plaid with the short hair to be my little buddy.

  • mutualselfishdesire September 13th, 2011 6:02 PM

    Heck yes! Toughness and adventure crosses age and (pseudo)gender lines! These photos are inspiring for FUN.

  • Geebs September 13th, 2011 6:06 PM


  • Stephanie September 13th, 2011 6:28 PM

    This is the best thing on the Internet. I’m in love with RookieMag !!

  • Maddy September 13th, 2011 6:30 PM

    love these. that denim vest with slats in it? so cool!

  • Whatsername September 13th, 2011 6:33 PM

    Oh God, I can’t take my eyes away from those big purple glasses, LOL! This is so sweet. 8D

  • darksideoftherainbow September 13th, 2011 6:47 PM

    omg! i LOVE these! i have two sisters (i’m in the middle) and these pics totally reminded me of when we were younger…esp the purple jumper the little girl is wearing! also, i spent most of my childhood in braids. thank you so much for the awesome pics…they brought me back to a great time!

  • Thepunkrocker September 13th, 2011 6:55 PM

    These are Great!

  • thumb biter September 13th, 2011 7:27 PM

    these are so beautiful! What camera did you use? (pretending I know anything about anything photography related)

  • Geebs September 13th, 2011 8:12 PM

    the eye patch was hard to maneuver in:/… it still looked really cool though:)

  • Jenny September 13th, 2011 8:24 PM

    Erica, these photos are outrageously great! I’m taking so much style inspiration from the girl in the purple glasses & pigtails! Also is that a sparkly sticker I spy on the tallest girl’s forehead? Love it all. xx

  • LoversSaintsSailors September 13th, 2011 8:34 PM

    Love #7 and those last 3.

    I definitely remember those days as a kid. No sisters, but me, my brother and my cousins (all boys) used to hang out like this. Good times.

  • Dylan September 13th, 2011 8:41 PM

    Such a good look. I’m so into these, they are really emotionally compelling. Loooove

  • insteadofanelephant September 13th, 2011 8:51 PM

    what a perfect explanation for the title. i never wanted to go inside for dinner.

    instead of an elephant

  • Erica September 13th, 2011 8:54 PM

    anna- These were taken at my Grandfathers ranch :)
    thumb biter- Its a Pentax K1000 !

    Thanks everyone!!!

    • momentisaflower September 16th, 2011 2:30 PM

      They’re just lovely Erica. What type of film were you using?

  • ichewmylips September 13th, 2011 8:58 PM

    Oh my goodness, these are amazing! I especially love photo 16! It reminds me of my childhood playing with the neighbourhood girls and never wanting to go back home. Secrets were shared, imaginary world were created…I wanted those days to last forever.

  • izzybee September 14th, 2011 1:41 AM

    the little girl with glasses is so cute! loving the last pic too:)

  • Izzy September 14th, 2011 12:30 PM

    These truly are some of the best pictures I have ever seen.

  • Thanatos September 14th, 2011 12:40 PM

    Virgin suicide flashback. <3

  • linnea September 14th, 2011 7:01 PM

    Childhood flashback! It just strikes me how beautiful and magical my childhood was.. all the imaginary worlds me and my best friend created, the huts we built, the trees we climbed, coming home late for dinner because “we were just saving a tree stricken with a mysterious disease and we had to bandage it and give it medicine” whereas my mother looked down upon me, stricken – not with disease – but with astonishment over all of my always oh-so-creative excuses. And believe you me I was never nonplussed when it came to excuses ;)

    And by the way may I just say (haha unintentional rhyming-skills) that the little girl with purple glasses is TRULY AWESOME! :)

    And ofc – ROOKIEMAG RULES!!!


    your swedish little elf

  • Toilets September 15th, 2011 12:47 PM

    Ooh I’m getting all nostalgic for childhood and sunshine and whatnot. Amazing photos!

  • momentisaflower September 16th, 2011 2:29 PM

    These are seriously fantastic! They get better and better as the series goes on. My favorites are the one where the girl has the firecracker (stick on fire? not quite sure what it is) and the one where everyone is lined up skipping away from the camera. A good photo essay conveys mood and this one has it in spades. Not to mention is so nice to see all this friend/sister love!!!

  • Besu September 16th, 2011 3:11 PM

    these photos are sooooo cool I <3 number 5 xx
