Wearing a tutu at 30 ...

Today I made the decision that you're never too old to dress as young as you feel. I realize that that statement can be present a major contradiction when it comes to "fashion". But, I am truly convinced that sometimes we give up on ourselves and the desire to look and feel great simply because we're just not the same person we were five, ten, or even fifteen years ago. Confidence is a tricky thing, but it's also a deal breaker. Those with the confidence to believe they are beautiful, to believe they can be successful, to believe they will find and marry the person that were meant to share forever with, and to make the changes to make all these things happen ... actually do.

Maintain the same confidence you did when you were a little girl (or boy) desperately trying to climb that enormous tree in your backyard. You totally knew you could do it and you honestly didn't care how. No fear. Find the little girl inside of you that reached into her dresser and pulled out your favorite skirt, a mismatched shirt, and the sparkly shoes your mother only allowed you to wear to church on Sunday morning. Walk out of your room with pride then walk out of your front door with a giant smile.

Put on your favorite tutu. You look beautiful in it, pretty lady.
