Striped Dress x The Nude

Striped Dress x The Nude

Hi Loves,

I am so happy to be sharing more and more of my personal style with you all. I have come to realize that the older I get, the more comfortable I am in my own skin. As a 23 year old, your 20s is that phase of your life, I would believe, that is filled with life changing changes. There are too many good and bad changes that I am sure will occur for you as it has for me, so if you are in your 20s and having similar experiences, it is key to remember that every experience is a lesson, which will help you to become a better person or version of you.

Today, I want to share this outfit, as I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try new styles and trends. I am really was just a jeans and T-shirt type of girl and a pair of flats but I am grateful and loving my transition, as change is good.

With these new changes in my life I feel invincible and more confident in myself that whatever comes my way, I will have the strength to overcome.


Your 20s is that phase of your life also, to try new things, see what you like to do, or wear, or eat and what you do not like to do or wear or eat.

Here are 5 lessons you will learn in your 20s:

  1. You do not have as many friends as before

Since of late, I really do not have that much friends as I used and that’s totally OKAY! I have come to realize who was really meant to stay. Your interest may change and you may realize that you’d rather do things on you own.

      2. Life doesn’t get easier

Remember when you were younger and you would tell yourself that you can’t wait to reach your 20s thinking that life would be so much easier? Lets all laugh together! In your 20s, you have to figure everything out.



 3. You don’t have everything figured out

We tend to feel unaccomplished and find ourselves competing with 30 something and 40 something year olds. You want to get married, want a house, a car, want to travel. Also, you realize that you want to get everything done, when in reality, you have plenty of time left to get all of that together.

 4. It’s really hard to save money

Maybe you’re living on your own to get your life together, you will have to pay bills, the need to purchase food and maintain a life. You may have a job that is not paying enough to cover your responsibilities, so it is really hard to put money aside for your future.


   5. It’s okay to try new things

Take the risks you have always wanted to take, wear something different, go somewhere different, conquer your fears, find a new hobby. You will realize how fulfilling it can feel.

Always remember that you’re strong enough to pull through anything happening in your life. And, when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.

I really hope you enjoyed this post and I would love to hear all the lessons you learned in your 20s.

    I’m 22 and I agree with all of these! Especially the “finding out who your friends are” aspect.

    That dress is so cute! I love the way you styled it too 🙂 It’s a little short but I’d probably rock it anyway LOL And those are great things to learn in your 20s. Wish I had realized all that back then.

    I love this post, and you look great! Look at those legs, girl! I love the part you wrote about having everything figured out. It’s funny how we always think that when we’re younger but then we realize the 20’s sometimes feel like nothing but a state of wondering-haha. Great post!
