Scarf weather

I had to chaperon an event for my sorority this past Sunday, and I basically was trying to go for an outfit that wasn't going to make me look like I was trying to dress young, but at the same time, cute enough to pass as a really mature but still young-looking student—that doesn't sound creepy. Turning 25 really makes you question your youth and vitality in comparison to 20-year-olds. They have 5 years on me. 5! So I went with something easy by re-purposing this shirt dress from summer as a top and then throwing a scarf into the mix, which is why I love scarf weather.

I think you did a great job of showing how fashionable you are but appropriate to your age. I love the boots!

3 months from today I turn 26. Yikes. When I went shopping this past weekend I was torn about certain outfits at Urban Outfitters. I know there isn't an age limit on outfits but when I see a girl wearing her high school varsity letter jacket looking at the same dress I was looking at I had to rethink my possible purchase.

Such a cute outfit! I love the scarf and those boots! I'm hoping the fall weather hangs around for a bit. I'm not quite ready it to get below 30.

Rosanna, we are still so young, I think we should really enjoy wearing things now that we won't be able to wear when we are 30 or even 40! So as long as it's not to crazy, I think you should go for it! Dating Diva, hopefully we will get a few more warm days before it dips down below 30! Fingers crossed!

Is it creepy if I aspire to be like you?

Fall Ankle Boots

Like any true romantic, fall makes me reach for dark, floral patterns and feminine details. To balance out that vibe, I occasionally drif...
