Altar Boy





Today I turn the ripe age of 24 so I decided to dress like a Victorian altar boy and say ALL of the prayers in the world to try and stop me growing older and people (like my grandparents and that woman in Tesco) now being under the impression I should be basically an IRL adult.

It dawned on me recently that I will only be able to have a 16-25 railcard for another year – whoever designed that system obviously feels that by 25 you should have your life together enough to be able to afford full-price rail fares. How wrong you are buddy.

So Happy Birthday to me (am I allowed to congratulate myself?) and heres to being as old as you feel, not as old as National Rail expects you to behave…

Blouse – Isabel Marant

Jeans – Topshop

    I feel terrible right now. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! I hope you had a fabulous day. P.s. isn’t the rail card a life saver? I’ll probably cry when mine runs out. I keep getting emails from them though saying you could order one the night before you turn 25? So you can have it for even longer??? I think, anyway. Fingers crossed that’s true and I didn’t just dream it. xxx

    • I have heard on the grapevine that you can buy them the day before your 25th too – mad urban legends that I’m pinning all my future dreams/hopes/fears on xxxxxxxxx
