I’ll admit, I always read those articles that are basically lists of everything you should/n’t own or wear when you hit your thirties. And then I read the comments. Because holy moly, do so people get pissed about fairly silly articles that tell them what they can’t do.
Like omg ladies, if you have the confidence to pull off a short skirt or tank top at any age, go for it.
But honestly, I love the articles. As I’m packing and shopping and daydreaming, it’s nice to have a reminder about what I might be a touch too old for. Maybe it’s time to turn all of my tshirts from high school and college into one bombass quilt for cozying up in front of Netflix. And do I really need to be rocking a graphic tee, cutoffs and converse? Probably not. Because I’m trying to be a grownup. Am I still going to keep taking and using souvenir cups (because I drop things and Scotti and Diego steal….safety first) hell yes.
How to Dress for Every Age, According to J. Crew-Whatever. I love JCrew, which is ridiculous since I can’t really afford anything from there. I have Jenna Lyons all over my inspiration board in my room. Creative prep seems like an A+ way to dress for big girl world.
Dear Fashion Editors, Stop Telling Me What I can’t Wear in my 30s-this essay definitely hits just how silly these articles are, how boring they are, and just why she’s refusing to listen. Love it.
Also, as my 28th birthday gets closer (May 14, write it down!), I’m getting more and more nervous about this whole growing up thing. Overall, I’m no where near where I imagined myself to be. Yes, I love my life and all that jazz, and I’m constantly reminding myself that this is part of my story.
“thirty, flirty and thriving” and all that good stuff.
