A few days ago, I turned 27. I'm not freaking out. I don't feel old. I'm actually quite pleased about it!
Silk blouse, Jaeger | Knitted cardigan, Mango | 'Jeggings', Uniqlo | Boots, NW3 by Hobbs | Bag, Mulberry | Necklace, NW3 by Hobbs | Ring, Primark
So, I'm officially in my 'late twenties'. I weigh more than I did last year. I've given up any hope of ever wearing a crop top. I have a genuine need for eye cream. But I'm ok with all of that. I want to shop in Hobbs, not Nasty Gal. Seriously, I do!
I'm hoping my first outfit of 2013 will set the tone for my year as a 27 year-old. I spent much of 2012 feeling old and trying to shoehorn myself into trends (and Disco Pants) that just weren't me, but it's like a switch has been flicked and I feel entirely ready to embrace a more natural style - for my age, my body type and my personality. So that's comfy cardis and cute blouses with statement lipstick and killer jewellery, then.
I have a pretty exciting year ahead - a wedding (mine!), honeymoon (again, mine!), maybe a house move and another kitten to add to our family. Can't wait to get it started!
Are you embracing your age? Tell me your digits - promise I won't spill the beans ;)
