As someone who struggles age-appropriate clothing, sometimes I am caught in the dilemma of 'should I dress for myself or dress for others'. I have the genetics of having a young-looking face so I am constantly confused as a child or high schooler. I also know having a young face has its benefits as people tell me, 'oh when you are forty, you will look like you are in your twenties'. Yet I want to live in the present and be accepted as my current age so I would spend more time dressing up and applying make up than other people. I believe appearances are very important because people do treat you differently by the way you dress. However, I do believe everyone should have days to dress without limitations. This is an outfit that exemplifies a style that I like to wear during my off-days. The details of each piece are what make them favorites in my wardrobe. This outfit is comfortable and casual for a day to hang out with friends, run errands, or go grocery shopping. I could also style the blouse more professionally in a different outfit! Just wanted to share my thoughts. I would love to hear yours.

  1. Your thoughts resonate with me! I agree, i'm twenty two going on twenty three and I feel that way sometimes on the age appropriate dressing. But, then you have to just let go sometimes!

  8. I know exactly what you mean. I find myself sometimes looking at a piece and wondering if I'm too old for this, or if I'm too old to shop here! I hate these kinds of thoughts because I believe we are entitled to wear whatever we want and what feels right.

  10. I love this crochet and lace top! Also having a young looking face is such a plus! We are older rather than younger for a longer portion of our life...at least that is the way I look at it!
