Lately I've been feeling like i'm stuck between this weird transition from teenager to adult. Sometimes it's a little bit unsettling and I never know whether I should act more or less mature but at the same time I'm really enjoying this time. At 20 years old, there aren't going to be many more years where I can act like both without really being judged.

I've never really fit in with the "typical" college student, I have close friends, but they are a lot like me in the sense that we roll our eyes when we hear the other girls talk about drama between their friends or that they had beer spilled on them at some party. But at the same time, I know I'm not adult-like at all in terms of being financially secure or even knowing where to start when something goes horribly wrong.

This is really just a random thought, something I've been thinking about all day. I guess I'm just trying to say that I really like this time in my life. It's nice being mature when looking at life decisions, yet not having anything really holding me down right now. I really don't understand why people say that high school years are the best years of your life, because as far as I'm concerned those years don't even compare.

    Nope, college is the best time :)
    I'm 37 and I still act like a teenager sometimes lol.

  2. Aw, I really love the pearls. It's just the right amount of accessory!

  3. Such a cute dress, love the colors :) Oh, and shoes are gorgeous too!

  4. This is darling! And as a "girl" who'll be thirty in March, let me tell you you have lots of time left to feel in between! :). I think you've got the right perspective definitely

  5. I love that dress!! It reminds me of my mom's blue and white china dishes. And I know how you feel-- I'm about to turn 22, and I definitely have enjoyed college more than high school!!


  6. You look so pretty! Great shoes :)

  7. I agree with you about the age thing, being a young adolscenet, you can act both ways, still feeling so young and the other half being , I guess mature. I never really thought of that, nice thinking :)
    And high school yrs, are the worst! I don't get how it's the best yrs of someones life, because, teenagers mean, being confused and trying to figure yourself out and going through phases and what not. I honestly have to say, being a kid, are the best yrs, I adore it so much, it's innocent, playful and not much to worry about. I'm a kid at heart, excuse me. :)

    Nice post and nice outfit, I like your cardi with the dress, it's cute and looove the pearl necklace, so nice! :D

    Thank you Chelsea Elizabeth for your awesome comment on my My Old Navy Blogger event post! :D

    Enjoy your 2nd part youth! :D


  8. pretty dress!

  9. Love your dress!
    I've been having that feeling a lot lately, too. I'm turning 20 in exactly a month, and the whole idea of entering a new decade and new stage of adulthood is pretty daunting, and a little scary. But in other ways it's great and exciting.

  10. Oooh, Chelsea, we would be the bestest of friends in college... I, too, am one who rolls her eyes at the drama and that tends to follow our female gender! I haven't been to any college parties and don't ever plan on it, hee hee, for I'm much more of a recluse who likes to be by herself and be calm and draw and read. I wish there were more ladies like you down at my college!!

    I really love the print on this dress. It reminds me of a dainty porcelain teacup. :)
