Im sixteen going on seventeen...

"I am sixteen going on seventeen..." Something about this gazebo reminded me of that scene in The Sound of Music. Ironically people always mistake me for a teenager and then I always have to politely respond "No actually, I'm 25!" Then they look at me shocked and apologize. I find it so annoying when people think you are a lot younger than what you are. I know that 20 years down the road I will love looking younger, but right now its really annoying. It probably doesn't help that sometimes I dress like a little girl. For example this outfit, it is fun and quirky and probably doesn't look like what you would expect a 25 year old to wear but I don't care. So I guess I should just get used to people thinking I am possibly "16 going on 17"... ha ha!! :)

Dress: Choies
Pinafore: Forever 21 
Shoes: ModCloth
Bag: Thrifted 
Necklace: Ruche 

Have you ever had anyone think you appear younger than what you are?

Have a happy Thursday, lovelies!

  1. I relate to this so much! I'm rather short and I guess my face looks younger at times and people mistake me for younger too often. A few months ago my parents and I were at Applebee's and I went to the restroom and my mom told me that the waiter asked if I wanted a kids' menu.

    I just turned 20. Lol! So yeah I feel your pain girl. Also, I adore the outfit :)

  2. That pinafore is lovely! Reminds me of my school years (our school uniform was light blue pinafores). I do now sometimes have people saying I'm younger than my age, which is weird cos when I was below 20, people always say I look older! It's kinda funny, in a way. It's the other way around now :)

  14. I would've never thought the pinafore and dress would look good together but somehow you've managed to pull it off and look amazing! :) Some people say I look old enough to not be looking suspicious whereas others doubt I'm 18, it's very amusing.

  16. Love this outfit of yours, the pinafore is fantastic! I am get the same thing all the time. People are always shocked to discover that I'm actually not a teen. I think it certainly is the way I dress, but I revel in it and get a great laugh out of seeing people's reactions, haha!

  27. I love those shoes! Once I went to Substitute teach at a local high school when I was in my late 20s and they weren't even going to let me in because they said that Seniors were testing so all other students had to stay out-- When I told them I was a substitute teacher the lady looked quite embarassed!
