Lately, my clothes haven't been fitting, and I just look like I have a sack on a lot of times, because they have gotten so big on me. I rarely spend money on myself, but yesterday, I felt the need to buy clothes (and bras) that fit. I have gone from an XXL shirt to an XL shirt (and a whole cup size in my bra - don't be dismayed, I have ple-enty to spare.)
I went to Old Navy last night to find some tops...just some basics, nothing fancy. Well, except this adorable cardigan, but a little splurge is ok, right? As I would try on a top, I would come out of the dressing room to show my husband the results and get his opinion. One of the times I emerged from the dressing room, a little girl was there with her family.
I'm a terrible judge of age, but if I had to guess, I would say she was about 8ish. She had that kind of uneven smile of a young girl that had just recently gotten some of her permanent teeth in, but still had some growing into them to do. :) She had the color of blond hair that it seems only a little kid can have naturally and bright blue eyes. As I was about to walk back into the dressing room, she said, "You look very pretty!"
I was pleasantly shocked, but thankfully regained my composure before she noticed and replied, "Thank you!" I had a big grin etched on my face for the rest of the evening. It was so unexpected and from a little girl I've never seen before. I FELT pretty, so having her confirm it definitely made it so.
