2 Old 4 School


When I was in London this past summer I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to capture a good photograph of a red double-decker bus. Every time I saw one on the street I whipped out my camera and stopped whatever else I was doing to try to get that iconic vehicle. My travel companions were unreasonably patient with me and eventually I got the shot. So, I understood Thomas when he expressed a desire for a picture with a classic yellow school bus. Luckily my friends knew where a bunch of school buses got parked when they weren't running and dropped by there over the weekend for a few pictures. Thomas got all the school bus pictures he could desire and I had the perfect backdrop for my "2 old 4 school" sweater. I'm quite glad to be beyond the days of waiting for the bus on your corner no matter the weather and enduring a couple of particularly ornery drivers through the years...

Hey, this might be a weird question, but how do you stay so young??

Is there a secret diet or skin scare routine? Or are you just blessed with eternal youth?

PS. Thanks for another wonderful post :)

@NP, honestly I don't know--it's not a conscious effort on my part, but I have always looked younger than my age. In Elementary school I was way undersized, as a senior in high school people thought I was a freshman, so I know I look younger than my age now in some ways, but I've sort of always looked this way. Also I don't know how much my looking young now has to do with being petite & dressing younger! For skin I do think I look best when I drink plenty of water.

I just read your comment above Rebecca. Being petite and dressing cute (but never inappropriately, may I add) will keep you young in spirit and youthful looking. I'm similar. And yes, "water makes you hotter," so the saying goes. We may be "2 old 4 school," but never too old to learn. I also think that even when I'm an old person, I'll probably stick to pretty, attractive, and age-unspecified clothes/fashion, because honestly, I never want to look matronly.

LOVE these pictures! Your outfit is so cute (I need shoes like that now!) and there's something very classic about posing with the schoolbuses!

@MarieBayArea I agree I don't know how I'll transition as I get older b/c I haven't planned it, but I definitely don't want to get stuck in this idea of "older/mature" clothes only. The thing is if "younger" styles (that most people your age don't wear) look good on you, then why avoid them? It's silly to dress like you're a certain age when you don't even look it in the face!

These pictures are awesome! What a great idea using school buses as a backdrop, indeed very clever!

I really want this sweater - especially since I still hang out (by which I mean "drive them places and buy them lunch") with my teen-aged cousins and I'm 26.
But, jeez, you're adorable.

You always look so amazing! I love how you look so good in every hair color, I don't know why but I really liked the pink. I started a school fashion blog at university of rochester! one of the posts is inspired by you XD!

I should buy this sweater to clear that up for people who ask me if I'm an undergraduate or in high school. Looking young is a blessing and a curse. I enjoy the timelessness of the school bus. It's nostalgic. - Leah, stylewiseblog.blogspot.com
