Age and appearance

I am 27 years old. In October, I will be 28.

FYI, on most days, I don't feel like an adult. Just felt like that needed to be said.

I teach mainly 18-22 year olds. I don't feel that I look much older than them (It also helps that I continually get mistaken for a college student.).

So my appearance takes the form of my attitude. I've always felt that I was a little bit hippie, a little bit of a 50s child, and a lot of the 60s. I heart polka dots, bright colors, pearls, and sparkles. And my clothing reflects that.

I bought this particular headband last year and wore it maybe twice. I pulled it out again today to pull together my coral-turquoise color scheme and to help my air-dried hair. However, I am 27 years old.

Am I too old to wear a flower headband?


And now, a better view...

Thoughts?

oh my gosh....NO!! I for one don't think age really matters in judging if something looks good...you can either pull off a look or you can't...no matter your age.

and you, my friend, totally pull that off!!!

Oh I hope not... Because if your 27 year old self is than my 30 year old self will have to retire many accesories... :) Love it. I am all about polka dots, sparkles, ruffles, and flowers...

No, I love it on you, so cute!
I neither look nor act my age, which I think is a wonderful ruse, if I do say so myself.

Girl ... wear that flower headband! Shoot ... I'm gonna be 40 and wear a feathered one all the time.

Now you're making me question whether or not I should.
