In just over a month, I will turn 30. The big 3-0. Considering I already have a child and am in a committed, long-term relationship, I am not dreading 30 in the way some women do. I already feel 50, so it’s actually quite refreshing to be celebrating the fact that I am in fact 20 years younger than I feel.
That being said, I haven begun to question my wardrobe as I approach 30. Let’s just say, I’m not afraid to take a fashion risk or try a trend and so my closet is filled with more leather shorts, crop tops and metallic than I’d probably like to admit. On the other extreme, I also own hideous–yes, I’m honest with myself–pieces that I justify wearing because I’m a working city mom and they’re comfortable and/or warm. But alas, isn’t 30 the year you’re supposed to get it together? Especially as, you know, a fashion editor?
So before my birthday arrives, I’ve decided to take a good look at my closet and start purging. Anything unbecoming of a 30-year-old must go. And I’m sharing my experience because, well, there are just some things women over 30 shouldn’t wear. Freak out in the comments if you want, but click through the slideshow before telling me I’m wrong about any of these.
