I turned 30 yesterday. And I’ve been thinking a lot about “age” and all that stuff. You know, birthdays always make me introspective. Or something.
I’m honestly, really, truly not a big birthday person. At least when it comes to myself. Other people? I love celebrating other people’s birthdays… but mine? Not so much. It’s not that I have a problem with turning 30… in fact, I really am quite pumped for my 30s. I feel like I’m going to take 30 by storm! I just don’t want all the pomp and circumstance of a day celebrating something I really did nothing for… I just showed up.
Now, my daughter’s birthday? I care WAY more about that now! I mean, I WORKED for that thing. That was months and months of carrying her and hours and HOURS of labor for her to come into this world… Now THAT is a birthday worth celebrating.
But in all seriousness, I am excited for 30 and I’m excited for what lies ahead.
Also, with regards to this dress (I have a point here…)… when I first saw this dress I really thought I was going to hate it. It’s really not normally my style (I love the print, just not the “flounced part) and I thought it was going to be way too “young for me.” However, once I tried it on, I loved it. It’s so fun and so flowy and so light and so airy and it makes me think of summer and the beach.
So, if you think a flounced dress is too young for a 30 year old, we’re just going to have to agree to disagree, because I LURVE it.
What about you? Are you a big “birthday” person? Do you care if an outfit is too “young” for you? At what point should you really worry about “dressing your age?”
