On August 18th, I celebrated my 27th birthday party (can I stop growing up now?) and I made it a point to do what I could to forget that I was getting older. In general, I prefer doing childish actives (laser quest anyone?) over drinking at bars or going to clubs. I've heard of Dave & Busters for years and figured it would be the best way to celebrate (or rather distract) the big day.
Style is so strange, isn't it? I was feeling very pleased with where my style is heading but now I suddenly feel the urge to change it up again. Now that I'm 27, back in school for the semester and buckling down again, I want to get back into tight skirts, leather jackets and cleavage tops (well, those never really went away). I try to remind myself that I don't have to commit to one style and that its ok to move between moods and feelings. You can often tell how I'm feeling about myself or my life by the clothing I wear and I guess that is whats most interesting to me about personal style.
Aside from feeling a little scared about being in my late 20s, I really did enjoy celebrating my birthday this year. Instead of spending it doing the usual dinner and pretending it just isn't happening, I wanted to give myself a reason to look forward to it this year. I'm a bit of a classic worrier and I tend to spend the weeks leading up to my birthday just thinking about all the ways I haven't accomplished what "normal" people my age are supposed to accomplish. It really sucks the joy out of it for me! Thank goodness for good people who really want to help put a smile on your face!
