Too young?

I really love this style of clothes and with spring and summer coming up I am super excited to pack away my heavy coats. But I'm worried that this style might be too young for me. I'm 22 and a mom to a 2 year old. Because I'm a mom I feel like I should be dressing older than this but at the same time, like I said, I'm only 22. I recently lost a vast majority of my baby weight (after over a year of busting my butt with diet and exercise) and am finally within range of my pre-baby weight. I really want to be able to wear adorable clothes like this. But I'm afraid it's not appropriate. What do you guys think?

Also this is NOT me.

Dress how you like. It isn't about whether you are a mom or now. There is no such thing as mom-wear. It's whether it looks good on you, whether you are comfortable in it, whether you feel fabulous in it, and whether it's appropriate for the activity or venue you are going to go to.

Enjoy!

No that dress is not too young for you, if you feel good in it, wear it and own it.

Thank you everyone. It hard getting advice when all my friends are are either still in college or just starting careers and childless. I love clothes and would hate having to sacrifice the clothes I love. Would anyone have any ideas on what kind of shirt cuts would look good on a big bust? Even though I lost weight my chest hasn't gone anywhere :(

Go for it! You're in your twenties, you can do it.

The dress is cute. I think the outfit is fine for a mom... especially a 22 year old mom.  The boots look goofy though...

I think the style is great on you, but this dress is a little short. Would look better a bit longer, and will make it easier to chase after your daughter.  Knee length or slightly above the knee would look great. :)
