I Rock A Lot of Polka Dots

Can we talk about how relevant this quote is? There are so many times, especially in London where everyone looks serious on the streets and wears neutrals, that I feel like if I wear what I want to wear, or act how I want to act, I won't be taken seriously.

For instance, I have a Lilly Pulitzer planner, stickers and all. At home, no biggie, lots of girls have them. I can't tell you how many times I've gotten snickers and snide comments about being a 5-year old here when I take it out of my bag. So what? I like to put stickers on important dates. I like my colored pens.

I'm worried that when I graduate and get into the real world people are going to pressure me into wearing blacks and neutrals all day. Like, it's a legitimate concern. I don't hate black or navy, but if I have a lavender skirt and it's springtime, sorry black pencil skirt, you're going to spend some time in the closet.

And I'm not changing to an adult-y planner. I like my Lilly.

I know I'll have to grow up to a certain extent (aka, do taxes, call people when I need to talk instead of text, make dentist appointments, etc.), but I'm still young. I'm allowed to like glitter and wear my hot pink duck boots when it's cold outside.

I like singing to myself. I often talk in weird voices for no reason.
Side note: once my sister and I went a whole day talking to each other in only Australian accents.

I would pay a million dollars to anyone who creates glitter that doesn't get everywhere when you use/wear it.
At home, I talk to my cat more every day than I talk to most people.

Does anyone else feel this way? I'm ready to put on my pink polka dot scarf and go get a cupcake.
