As women (yes, I'm a 26 year old woman with a family and household to run so with all due respect please stop calling me "cute")…….we all have our issues. At some point in our life someone or something made us feel like we weren't pretty enough….or smart enough…..or tough enough. Fortunately as we get older…..those scars tend to fade away and we realize that we ARE pretty enough….and smart and tough enough to push another human being out of us. And it might always be a work in progress but hopefully we start to feel comfortable in our own skin. And when that happens…….watch out……..


  1. I absolutely love this outfit! The detailing on the top is so pretty and I love that you paired it with the distressed denim & edgy shoes. Gorgeous look!

  2. Love this look. The sleeve detail is feminine and great against the denim and black booties. I agree, it's so nice to feel more confident as I age. If only I could tell my younger self to relax!

  3. Yes! Everyone use to tell me I looked like Dakota Fanning (back when she was known for being Tom Cruises daughter in movies) and it drove me insane! I was in my twenties. Cute was not a compliment unless it came from someone 60+. Anyway I haven't been to Fabrik in forever and this top makes me want to pack CT and go now.

  4. Ha! I am short so I have always been cute and never a cheerleader. I LOVE that blouse, gorge.
