My daily poking around blogland the other day led me to Small Magazine's blog. I don't know why I had never looked at the magazine or their blog, but upon doing so, I was instantly inspired. "How?," you ask. Well for one, their images are lovely and two, a couple of clothing stories they did in this month's issue. Have you ever noticed the way little girls dress? I mean really take note. In addition to the inspiring images in Small, I served in the children's area Sunday at church. I was in the two's class. (That is a whole other story! Whew!) Something struck me... little girls don't care about how lovely they look - no matter what they are wearing. They just want to play and play they do without a second thought to their clothing.
Not only do little girls jump, run and tumble in dresses and skirts, they match and mismatch with amazing ease. They have no one to please but themselves. I love this freedom and I think I shall try to relive my youth this summer and do as little girls do. I vow to wear more dresses and skirts and play in the dirt while doing so.

and these shoes or flip flops
I also vow to wear what I like, matched or not, "in style" or not... just be me. xo
