aCullen 's Thoughts:

Dressing has seemed like a chore recently. Whenever I have inspiration for an outfit, I’ll usually write it down on a post-it and leave it on my bedside table to peruse when I’m dressing. Yet, a few days later when I review my growing stack of post-its, the idea bombs. Of course, it’s true something might look great in your head but once it’s on your body it’s a different story entirely. Recently, I’ve been feeling frustrated mostly that I appear way younger than I actually am. Granted, I know in 10 years I’ll be glad for my youthful visage, but right now it definitely feels like a hindrance. Most people believe I’m about 16, and then have a look of shock when I break the news I’m actually 25. Whoops.

To break this problem, I’m trying to mix up my “school-girl” attire with some more modern, stylish pieces, like this bowler hat and motorcycle jacket. Have any tips for me on shedding my outward naiveté?

LOL thats exactly like me! I'm always asked if I am 16, 18, 14 etc. And I am 25 also! Although by now I'd expect you are 26...

You look beautiful, please don't change your look because of ignorant people! Some say I look 14 (when really I'm 19) which frustrates me, but I'm not goint to change... <3

I have the exact same problem! I am 27 and people think I still go to school! Your have an excellent sense of style, wear what you like regardless of how old you think it makes you look! Love the Peter Pan collar above all!

I love this look! But if you're trying to look older, may as well ditch everything "schoolgirl"! And shorter hair in general makes one look more mature, although you do have great hair.

Adore the dress! Green looks really great on you.. very flattering! I know what you mean with looking much younger.. I have the same problem or luck, may I say. We'll appreciate that fact more when we'll be in our 30-40ties.
