We Are All Made Of Stars

I do believe this denim jumper will be my only indulgence in the jumper trend. I quite like them on others, but I felt a bit juvenile in my own--appropriate for climbing trees, a little less for other more typical activities I find myself. It might look more suited my to style in a cooler month when I can change the appearance of it with tights, boots, scarves, and such. It's always interesting to me when I see something on others and it looks fantastic--like this jumper, on another blogger or in a street fashion photograph it seems classic and with a school girlish vibe, but mostly preppy and current, but I don't like the way it looks on me. I see it as classic on others and feel Pre-K in it myself. Which affirms my usual personal style strategy: you don't know until you try. There are certain things you will read that don't work for petite people or pale people or whatever people, but when you put it on it does work. And there will be styles you like that you see on people on all ages, sizes, and so on, but when you try it feels very wrong. Fashion is partly in the experimentation and the only way to discover your new favorite thing is to try new things when the opportunity arises. For now, I'm still hanging on to this jumper--there might yet be a way for me to wear it and feel my age.
