Growing up is hard, doing it with dignity... That's even worse. Today, someone asked me: "I don't look like a kidult, do I?", she's in her late 20s and, to be honest, no, she doesn't look like a kidult. But that's a terrible thing that affects tons of people; we always want to look younger and when we don't, it's stressful. I got told the other day that I looked 27. I MEAN, C'MON. 27?!

I would kill to be sixteen again (with my current brain), I think I could make much better choices with my life, smarter decisions, maybe even become more important on the long run but, sadly, that's impossible. The best I can do is keep in touch with my inner child and pay tribute to him every once in a while (day dreaming, believing in magic, using my imagination... All those things).

I teamed up again with Frank Wright, one of my favourite shoe brands in the entire world, to showcase some models from their latest collection. For this look, I wanted to play with proportions and sort of create a new type of schoolboy. This is me going back to my inner child but not necessarily wearing sailor outfits (because, trust me, I wore those when I was a  kid). The white socks with black boots appeal to me for some reason and the oversized upper pieces transported me back to when I had fun trying on my dad's blazers, haha.

// Crecer es difícil, hacerlo con dignidad... Es aún peor. Hoy, alguien me preguntó: "No parezco chavorruca, ¿verdad?", ella está en la segunda mitad de sus veintes y, siendo honestos, no, no parece chavorruca. Pero eso es una cosa terrible que afecta a mucha gente; siempre queremos vernos más jóvenes y cuando no sucede, es un estrés impresionante. El otro día me dijeron que parecía de 27 años. ¡¿EN SERIO, 27?!

Mataría por volver a tener dieciséis (con mi cerebro actual), creo que podría tomar muchas mejores decisiones para mi vida, elecciones más inteligentes, quizá hasta volverme más importante a la larga pero, tristemente, eso es imposible. Lo mejor que puedo hacer es mantenerme en contacto con mi niño interno y rendirle tributo de vez en cuando (soñando despierto, creyendo en magia, usando mi imaginación... Todas esas cosas).

Me alei nuevamente con Frank Wright, una de mis marcas de zapatos favorita de todo el mundo, para mostrar un par de modelos de su colección más reciente. Para este atuendo, quise jugar con las proporciones y crear un nuevo tipo de niño de colegio. Esto soy yo regresando a mi niño interno pero no necesariamente usando ropita de marinero (porque, créanme, eso sucedió cuando era niño). Las calcetitas blancas con las botas negras me caen bien por alguna razón y las piezas oversized de arriba me transportaron a cuando me divertía probándome los sacos de mi papá.
