Forever young

Pink parrot print bikini | USA flag denim shorts | Multi print wedge sandals | Multi coloured parrot print vest | Mint green sheer sleeveless dress | Rainbow coloured dipped hem maxi dress | Floral zip front bralet | White and turquoise lace short | Aztec print gilet | Penguin shortie pyjama set | Pastel aztec print jersey skater dress | Candy neon garland All from newlook.com


Children and teens these days dress up surprisingly stylishly, with the likes of celebrity babies such as Suri Cruise heading the bunch. Honestly, when I was younger, I wore denim floral overalls and Doctor Martens shoes, courtesy of my mum's styling. But as we grow older and become the main decision makers of our own outfits, I think I got a little off in my teenage years and wore mostly t-shirt and shorts... Such a waste of my youth *sighs* As social media evolves and people come into contact with the Internet earlier, the young 'uns would be more easily involved and influenced in the latest trends. As a result, take a look at the new collections of New Look or other retail stores and you can see that children/teens clothing have become more and more influenced by the latest trends -- Pastels, floral, dip-dye etc. 

Which makes me all the more excited as these clothing would be priced lower with the same styling as you would find in a women's clothing line, albeit with a playful touch. And thank goodness my body has stopped growing since 13 and I can wear their 13-15 y/o clothing.

I found all the pieces above from New Look, some of which are on sale! Aren't they quite stylish and acceptable for a 20-year-old to wear? (Please say yes so I don't feel like a child...) The floral bralet was manufactured in the exact same design for adults but I guess the smaller version would provide a better fit for people who are more petite. And penguin PJs! No one will judge you when you are sleeping in your own room anyway and you can feel like a child again.

Can you guess which ones I would purchase? Also, which are your favourite pieces?

  31. OMG WE HAVE SO MUCH IN COMMON! my body is also small and petite ;_;
    and yes, i can wear kids clothing. lol.

    I think you'd purchase Mint green sheer sleeveless dress or Rainbow coloured dipped hem maxi dress cause it would look stunning on you!
    or if you're the cutie style, you'd purchase the penguin one, i guess? am i right? :P

    my favorite ones would be ALL OF IT, but but but i guess i can say this one: Pastel aztec print jersey skater dress :D


    anyway, followed your blog, follow me back? i'd be so happy!! :)

  39. I used to (and up til now sometimes) dress in only tshirt and jeans. I never bother wearing such complicated outfit because I really need to feel comfy while doing my activity. however I do agree that teenagers these days are just surprisingly more stylish than me. They even do make up better! lol
    Well, kids these days, I guess. They grow up kinda too fast. haha :)
