First of all, thanks to everyone who left me a “happy birthday” message on Wednesday. You could have wished happy birthday to Fidel Castro or Alfred Hitchcock, but you picked me, and I shall not forget your kindness.

I spent most of my birthday at home alone (just the way I like it), then put on this outfit to go out for a nice dinner to celebrate 29! Twenty-nine is the age that people tend to hang on to for a while. So now I worry when I tell people I’m 29 they’ll secretly be wondering if I’m actually 34 and just lying to them.

But I figured out how to avoid this problem. Here’s my plan: I’m just going to claim I’m 22 because (1) it’s still old enough to drink, (2) people don’t question that age, (3) I’m obviously very young-looking and it’s totally believable, and (4) Taylor Swift convinced me it’s a good age to be.

I’m going to claim I’m 22 until I’m 40, at which point it might be slightly less believable. Then I’ll claim I’m 50, and everyone will tell me how great I look for my age.

Great idea? Or the greatest idea? You get very wise at 29.

  1. I’ll be 30 in 2 months and yeah, I’m pretty sure people think I’m joking/lying when I’ve said my age all of this year. I like your plan. If only I had known this trick 10 months ago!

  2. That’s a really clever idea for aging/lying about your age! Let us know if it works out. 😉 Happy belated birthday! Hope you had a great day. I really like the leopard print pumps and the floral top, but I’m not sure I would put them together in one outfit. Or perhaps changing the dark jeans to something lighter (a skirt in nude, perhaps?) would’ve worked better. Anyways, that’s just my thoughts. x

  3. Happy Belated Birthday! I love that you combined two unexpected prints in one outfit. Let me know if your age idea works I might have to put it into play in the next few years 🙂
