Guess what, guys? Tomorrow is my birthday. My 32nd birthday to be exact and you know what? I’m feeling damn good about it. I remember turning 30 and thinking, “wow, my twenties are over. Now onto my thirties!” I’ve never really had a negative attitude toward aging. I mean, sure, I have those days when I feel older and I’m slapping on my night serums and retinol in a crazy effort to ward off premature aging. I know, I know. I’m only 31 almost 32 and I logically understand that that’s not OLD, but there are days when I do feel older. However, I feel like every year I get wiser. Every year I feel stronger. Every year I become more confident in myself. Every year I push myself more. I can without a doubt say to you right now that I have never felt as confident as I do in my own skin as I do at (almost) 32 years of age. Even though I had the best childhood (thanks to my amazing family and friends!), I don’t really “miss” being a kid. I look back fondly on those times (they really were great!) and sometimes I get super nostalgic for those carefree childhood days, but to be 100% honest with you, I love being an adult. I actually prefer it. I really love being in control of my own life. A big part of this is probably due to my family being very close (we talk every day) so I still feel a very strong connection to them even as an adult. When I was a kid, I used to dream about being an adult and I feel like it’s really all it’s cracked up to be. Sure, I have bad days and wish my mom could come take care of me when I’m sick (she actually still does this from time to time. Hi, mom!!), but for the most part, life as an adult is pretty amazing and it really does get better every year.
Okay, let’s talk about this outfit! There is nothing I love more than a chic AF monochrome outfit. Over the past two years, I have been so into monochrome looks that I feel like it’s become one of my signature styles. For this outfit in particular, I love how casual it is. I’m literally wearing jeans, two jackets, and really comfy ankle boots. I mean, does it get any comfier than that? When I first saw this outfit on Reformation’s website, I added both pieces to my cart and purchased immediately. I mean, how could I not? This look just screams “TAMRYN!!!!” especially since I have been gravitating toward much more casual outfits, both in blogging and IRL. I feel like this outfit represents that. It’s still elevated in the sense that I’m layering pieces together to create a higher fashion “street style” look but it’s still realistic for everyday life.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my last blog post as a 31 year old. It’s been real!
