Taylor Swift Radio

Remember those awkward middle school years? You know, the ones full of questionable fashion and style phases? Taylor Swift does. Before we go any further here, remember these trends were popular at one point in time.

In celebration of her album selling over a million copies in its first week of sales, she decided to throw it back to the year the last time an album sold as many copies as 1989 did in its first week: 2002.

Tay shared an AMAZING picture of her 12-year-old self in her "braids phase," and this just might become your favorite throwback of her yet. Check it out below!
