An important message for young girls: be you. be true. 

As the Twofer are turning the corner toward "tween"-dom, I'm paying closer attention to the messages they are receiving...from me, from advertisers, even from school and activities. I'm tuned in a little to more to how they are dealing with issues at school or with their friends.

I know there are struggles going on.

What is important to me is that they have the confidence and the tools to deal with those struggles.

be you. be true.  Whatever that may be.

As I wrote in my annual Letter to my Daughters on their Birthday post, I want them to feel good about themselves. 

Then I saw a friend of mine from college post about her new business on Facebook called be you. be true.

It seems SHE has the same idea with her daughter.

Even better, her daughter created a character called Little Miss Pink that has fun, positive, and empowering "be" messages for girls of all ages.

She decided to create t-shirts so girls all over the world can declare who they want to "be"! Here are just some of them:

Have an idea for a "be" message?

Have your child draw a picture with the message and submit it to the be you. be true. website. You never know - you might just see it on a t-shirt!

Want to share your "be" message?

I LOVE the photos of so many kids feeling really good about themselves. Send in your own photo when you get your t-shirt and share the message that we all can "be" true to who we are.

BE sure to LIKE be you. be true. on Facebook to see the latest designs. There are some really cute!

Disclosure: my friend Karen sent me t-shirts for the girls as a thank you for connecting her with other bloggers through Buzz Cooperative. All opinions are my own and I really love the 'be' messages. Also, the t-shirts are great quality!

Fresh Produce Fabulous Vacation Wear (A Fashion Friday Giveaway!) *winner*

UPDATE 11/12/10 Winner of the Fresh Produce cardigan is... Jay! Congratulations and check your email.

____________________________________________________

Raise your hand if you have NOT heard of Fresh Produce clothing?

{hand raised}

Because apparently I'm the ONLY person in my little world to have not heard of them.

But I have now.
And I LOVE them.

Fresh Produce Sportswear Looks and Feels sooo Good

Fresh Produce approached me to review some of their clothing and while the season seemed off (seems like warm weather beach wear) I agreed because I have a little 40th birthday trip planned... to MEXICO!

Oops - did I just date myself? Oh well.

They sent me...

This fabulous wrap dress

Fresh Produce Cafe Wrap dress perfect for vacationSuch a perfect dress! The style is very flattering and the fabric is lightweight and doesn't seem to wrinkle which is great for travel. They sent me one in the sangria (pink) color and I love love love. I can't wait to wear it out shopping or to dinner. It would make an elegant cover-up for the beach, no?  I'm going to end my sentences now with 'no?' because it's very international sounding...no?

 

Three letters: O. M. G.

The folks at Fresh Produce also sent me this unbelievably gorgeous and PERFECT cardigan

Fresh Produce Crystal Cove Cardigan is frilly and fun

The Crystal Cove Cardigan is lighweight, however, they sent me one in black so I will be wearing it ALL winter long! Seriously - you will have to force me out of this cardigan. It too is very flattering...no?... (I will upload photos of me in both as soon as I can but I wanted to get this post and giveaway up asap) with fitted arms but loose around the edges and the ruffle to give it that extra special 'ooh cute!' look. It will look great with jeans and a t-shirt or with a work skirt, pants, and a blouse.
