Does age really matter?

I ask myself this question nearly everyday… Am I getting too old to wear whatever I’m thinking of wearing…?

The Vine posted an interesting blog post on the topic that really made me reconsider some of the items in my wardrobe…

Like the 15 headbands in bright colours and prints all sporting oversized bows or flowers or lace for days when I’m feeling particularly girly or my hairs just not working. But really, is a nearly 25 year old too old to have a pink bow sticking off her head?

I mean, Katy Perry and Rihanna who are both in my age group can pull them off… But I’m not famous. Am I more Katy or Honey Boo Boo Child with pretty things in my hair???

And what about brightly coloured/patterned baby doll dresses… Are they too juvenile for a ‘lady’ like me…? Majority of my wardrobe is out there and attention seeking (according to my gf)… Are my patterns Emma Watson sophisticated or do I look like one of those skanks from Geordie Shore?

My final fashion worry – I really like to wear coloured flats if the mood is right. Are ballet flats in pinks and blues for two year olds? Or can 24 year olds pull them off too?

Please don’t tell me I have to start dressing like this… I’d rather look crazy bright then boring. For another 10 years at least (maybe five years for the hair bows haha).
