Never grow up

Never growing up dressing how you want
Never grow up. Growing older is inevitable but growing up is optional. I like to think I'm maintaining a relatively satisfactory balance at this. It's a toughie, isn't it, when you think back to how your parents or grandparents or even great grandparents may have been behaving at your age. I can say with absolute certainty that none of them would have been wearing this dress in their thirties. As a teenager I thought people in their thirties were old, in the sense of maturity. The more the years creep by the younger my thinking gets. Make up-schmakeup; if you can't handle my natural face then we're probably going to have trouble getting along. Yes, I love to pop a bit of eyeliner and mascara on, but no, I'm no longer painting myself into looking like someone else. It's been around a year now and hand on heart, I feel more comfortable with my skin than ever before.

My hair is wilder than ever after a two year skive from the hairdresser but in reality I really ought to get it trimmed as the ends are so so so dry. But as a general style, every day manangement and the overall appearance is one I am over the moon with. Wild suits me. I'm rustic.

This Dress! A charity shop find a month or so ago. It's Henry Holland and such a delight in all respects; bold summer floral print, almost saintly crochet peter pan collar while verging on being indecently short. The cut is a miraculously flattering one, giving a fitted bodice, a bit of flare to the skirt and styling to the capped sleeves. An instant favourite.

I'm making no compromises on how I choose to dress.

  1. Good for you! I sometimes wonder if something is 'age appropriate' but in reality I think it's because I don't really feel comfortable in something. I have plenty of things that aren't really meant for my age group but stuff it, if I feel good in it I'll wear it!
    You seem very comfortable in your own skin, and it shows.
    Love this dress, you have great legs, you can totally get away with something this length.

  2. There was I, thinking it was only us "blokies" who never grew up! Even before I read your narrative, I was thinking how "girlie" (in the best sense of the word) they looked, perhaps feminine is a better description. I'm sure I've mentioned "wild and free" on here before. Picture six could/should be a painting.
