I’ve always looked young for my age. And though I’ve often been called an old soul, I’m pretty sure it was just by dudes trying to get in my pants. (BTW, it did not work. Using my name and “old” in the same sentence never works.) Maybe it’s my free spirit or my utter denial of time, but I have just never felt my age. Some call it immaturity. Whatever the case, I don’t want to grow up. I hope that I’ll always be a kid at heart. The funny thing is that it took a major wake up call for me to become like this. As a child, I was extremely cautious. It is only as an adult that I’ve come to embrace the the fleeting nature of time. I try to do things that make me happy and to find the joy in life. The fact of the matter is that life is short; if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry your eyes out. And so I’ve decided to laugh. I may not always know where I’m going or what will come next, but at least I’m enjoying the ride.
P.S. What does all this have to do with today’s outfit? I have no idea. This started out as a post about how this dress reminded me of a grandmother’s doily and morphed into something else completely. I just went with it.
