Outfit # 53: 20 something


The thing about being 20 is you don't know anything, but at the same time, you're learning so much. 20 is overwhelming. Social issues, politics, taxes, paperwork... I wasn't trained for this! I told my adviser that life is measured in forms. Somehow I'm expected to make sound financial decisions and know how to get two cashiers check for a passport. And suddenly there's all these social issues regarding gender, sexuality and ethnicity and it has all been happening long before I was 20 but it's like I didn't even know about it or it only existed on the periphery of my life. 
So here I am 20 something and confused. I spent the first half of my 20th year wishing I could avoid what I deemed "the process." The Process being getting older and wiser through being selfish and stupid. But now that the end of my 20th year is dawning, I've decided to chill. I'll try hard to be a decent person and honest and loving, but if I make a mistake I'm going to take it as a sign of my age. It's okay. I'm 20. Practically a baby stumbling around adulthood playing pretend.
Outfit # 53
I had modern princess in mind when styling this ensemble. Her layering and style and talent all inspire me. Her insta is beyond cool. And honestly, this is one of the comfiest outfits I've ever worn. I may have even taken two and half hour nap before taking these photos. (sidenote: rock earrings)
