Hex 6 years A few days ago I rolled down the window of my car and half yelled at some Mom walking by the movie theater. Her kids looked at me like I was crazy and she was a bit taken aback but who doesn't love to hear, "LOVE your outfit, you are so freakin adorable." She was wearing dark blue jeans and a matchy jecket. There was a bit of her plaid blouse peeking out and she had THE nicest boots. She looked hip without looking like she was trying too hard.
