neck pet

Shirt: Cynthia Rowley, Jeans: Hollister, Jacket: F21, Fur Thing: H&M, Camera Bag: Theit, Shoes: H&M, Belt: H&M
Sometime last week I was at my local pharmacy picking up some face wash. 
I was wearing my snaziest outfit...
&& a ginormous chunk of my time was spent applying red lipstick before hand.

As I go to the cashier to pay, the very sweet lady at the counter smiles at me and asks..

"OH red lips - is that what you teenagers are wearing now a days?"

I wouldn't know sweet lady, I'm not a teenager. I'm in my 20's!

That's when it really hit me. I'm not a teenager anymore. 
I'm the type of person who goes to buy back up face wash before date night.
If I was a teenager I'd be quietly sneaking into my moms room and stealing hers. 
Then maybe getting yelled at for it.

So galls, yesterday I tried to muster up my most grown up -
"I'm not a teenager anymore" look
The fur thing
(not sure what else to call my pretty neck pet
was my attempt at looking more my age.

Did it work?

ya know, it looks great, I love the way you styled it! I love the little bit of color with the belt and I can't believe that the bag you are carrying is your camera bag!!

I love this look! Your pretty neck pet (great name!) definitely adds so sophistication. I think being in my twenties has been much better than teen years, who needs the uncertainty and confusion (and acne)- twenties are still young to be fun and old enough to know & love yourself!

Katya said...

I love the burst of color the red belt gives this outfit, and your leather jacket is awesome!

Hey Katya! I may be taking a break but not from reading your blog... I am addicted :)
I love the neck pet haha
What I love even more is your studded leather jacket! Holy hot! I love this entire look--especially the shoes! Love that you are brave enough to pair camel booties with this black jacket
And isn't it sad that we aren't teenagers anymore? Agh!

Also-
I forgot this was your camera bag. It is so beautiful.
And two-- where is this wall! It's gorgeous!!!

Katya said...

You have a very young face--but that's a good thing! This outfit is definitely in the 20-something range (I love the touch of red with your belt). When you're an old geezer like me, you'll be so happy when people think you're younger. :)

I think this is a great outfit and perfect for the temperatures as they begin to drop. The fur collar makes a great statement and I think it adds a nice touch of glamor to the look. I also love those boots! Hardly the look of a teenage - no worries. But I suppose being mistaken for someone younger will be something us twenty somethings will be looking forward to as the years wear on. Adorable look and I love your blog!

oh yes, very sophisticated. i dig this outfit with and without the fur actually. people still assume i'm a teenager sometimes too, i think it's partially cause we're both so short. but it never upsets me when people say i look young, because when i turn 50 i'm gonna love looking younger than i really am.. i know my mom does haha.

Yet another pretty outfit! I love the jacket! I honestly don't know why the lady thought you were a teen, because the teens over here do not wear sophisticated blouses, straight jeans and cute camera bags! x

Katya said...

great look... LOVE that fur. the bag is beautiful too!

Katya said...

Love the blue background in your images! That fur collar is so cute!

love the name of this post, and for real about the teenager thing. I'm in my early 30s and people think i'm a college student!
(ps: thanks for stopping by my blog!).

Katya said...

This outfit is awesome!! I'm baaaaaaack! I've missed looking at your blog 24/7.

Katya said...

YAY! I blame school for taking you away for so long :P

Wish I could click the like button on this more then once :P

Katya said...

Totally agree - we might be annoyed by it now, but when we're older it's going to be a blessing :)

Katya said...

Thank you for the amazing comment! My head is getting slightly bigger by the second ;) I am so upset that my blogger didn't give me updates on your new posts. I fixed it by following on bloglovin'! You'll be seeing a lot of me super soon.

Katya said...

Totally agree - I feel like I should cherish my 20's as much as I can. Time just goes by way too quickly, soon enough I'll want to start looking younger (minus the acne).

Thanks for your sweet comment by the way :)

Katya said...

Sometimes I forget it's my camera bag too! I feel like it's one of those bags that goes with everything, I don't seem to get tired of it at all. :):)

Thanks for your amazing comments Jess. Whenever I see "Jess has left a new comment" in my inbox, I always rush to read it!

Katya said...

currently jealous of your belt and jacket! You DO look very grown up. :)

Katya said...

Fur definitely adds a bit of maturity to any look! I love this! I can't believe I'm not a teenager anymore either - it's such a weird feeling!

Most Definitely! You look gorgeous, and so mature :) I know the feeling, at work everyone always teases me that I just graduated high school. I remind them it has been over 6 years :) Lucky us, we will just always look young!
