fifteen again

sitting
thrifted top, vintage dress via Pretty Penny, drugstore tights, Rachel Comey bernard platforms via Jeremys

I cut my bangs too short last night and developed a giant pimple on my cheek. What am I, 15 again? I suppose I also decided to dress the part when I was pressed for time this morning before Megan picked me up to go to San Jose for the day and night. Actually, when I was 15 I had razor cut hair, wore really dark eye make up, and was 25 pounds lighter so I wore super tight tops and skinny jeans (yet I still managed to be voted most fashionable in my high school yearbook?)

Is it just me or are teenagers so much more well dressed now than when I was growing up? I get a little jealous when I see girls pull off super adorable outfits on their blogs that I definitely wouldn't be able to wear right now. Well, I could, but I would honestly just feel really ridiculous. Someone once asked me if I was ever afraid of looking too old because of my current style but I admitted that at this point in my life I would prefer to appear like I'm older than to look like I'm trying to look younger and keep up with trends.

Well, being in your early 20s isn't exactly old but it's more of a difference in lifestyle thing I suppose. Being out of college and being on my own feels so much more different than it did when I was still in school surrounded by my peers. Ahh well, I'll still love these mini dresses.

About the style thing, I don't think you look old at all, if it makes any difference... and fifteen isn't exactly the most fashionable age, no?

yes i agree how so many teenage girls are so much more well-dressed than when i was in high school... it's creepy though when they dress like 20 year olds but u can tell they're 10.

Jessica said...

you actually a girl on blog who makes me jealous of your cute outfits too.
love this so much.
cute dress with a cute oversized jumper.
pretty! ahhh back to 15 is nice. just consider your pimple as an anti aging. lol.

Ruth said...

Fab boots! I feel like since I left high school I don't have to try so hard with the things that I'm wearing. I prefer a more relaxed style with mussed up hair and little makeup...

Big jumpers over a dress and flats is a great outfit for any day of the week!

I tend not to pay much attention about age/style etcetera. It doesn't matter how old you are but the clothes you feel comfortable in haha.

the_eye_collector said...

But you're so tiny already; I can't believe you were ever 25 pounds lighter!

I don't think your style makes you look old. It's cute, without being inappropriately young. No-one wants to be that pathetic girl who dresses in hotpants and belly tops.

Bella said...

Haha, I'm a young blogger! You kind of have the cute retro-date going on. Love it. Love those shoes, the dress...the whole outfit, really. Also, I think your hair looks adorable. :)

Bea said...

I know what you mean. i am looking around at all these stylish little highschoolers and thinking DAMNNN! I looked like a dork when i was in highschool.

On another note I have been living in sweater + grungey floral skirt combinations myself. Heaven.

Elizabeth said...

I think you look fantastic and definitely not like a sullen awkward teenager :) The dress is beautiful and I continue to be obsessed with those shoes. If only I could justify buying a pair...

Ria said...

It really is such a different mentality once you hit a certain age or are out of school. I used to live in crop tops and now I'm like...uh no. I want to be daring again.

Hannah said...

Amazing outfit! I love it!

Love your outfit! I'm going through the same thing right now (currently 23 but feeling the awkward 15 with my skin and hair)I needed a hair cut badly so my friend recommended me this site to get the most flattering haircut

and this for my skin (I've always had troubled skin and this really helped me out)

Have a great day =]

Marlena said...

You already finished school? Ugh lucky I'm in my last stretch- six more weeks to go! There's a sticky note count down above my bed. I like your baggy looks, I always feel my most confident in effortless pieces. I'd quite literally live in that white sweater, you look all ready for spring :) (which probably isn't saying much when you live in san fran, but when you live in chicago you're just about ready to dance in the streets)

Aww, I want to wear clogs and thigts and skirts too! But it´s still a full winter here, so...

I think you´re style is an interesting mixture of an adult kind of look and a girly girl. And I like it!

Krissy ~ said...

have to agree, younger girls dress so much more mature!...kind of get this from my mum saying it all the time aha!
cute outfit!! you look adorable!

I have noticed how stylish high school kids are these days... though I wonder if we seemed stylish to people who were older back when we were in high school? Haha, probably not (for me anyway)... early 2000s fashion was not exactly the best.

first time visiting your blog & I think I'm in love!

I have a tendency to cut my bangs too short too... then try to regrow them.. then cut them too short again, its an addictive downward spiral..

great outfit by the way & definitely will be following on bloglovin : )

so jealous of your new Rachel Comey's! I had been eyeing them on sale online but they sold out... I take too long to decide. And definitely feel you about the young girls dressing so chic these days. Maybe it's the fashion blogosphere? Who knows, I just know that I agree with you, being 24, and realizing I can't wear what I wore when I was 20, even...

oh, man, I feel old!

Jessica said...

Love the contrast of the loose sweater with the patterned mini dress!
