Being a tween is hard. I am good at dancing, singing, drama, gymnastics and track. I play violin and flute, do well in school and have friends. But there are two pieces missing from the puzzle that would make me completely happy.
Fashion and looks.
A lot of parents and teachers say that looks don’t matter, but to me they do. Facial appearance, clothes, shoes, hairstyles, it is all part of fitting in. I have always been fond about these things. I love dressing in fashion, and drawing it too. I went to a fashion camp, which was really fun, and we learned about which shirts match which pants, and how to make a good outfit.
When I saw a lot of my friends wearing Uggs, leggings, Under Armour, and Converse, I thought they looked super cute. I had realized that all the people that were wearing those things were super likable, popular or both. Usually you are likable because of your personality, but you are popular because of how you look or dress. I have always wanted to be one of those people. So I figured that if I have those clothes, and wear makeup and all of that I would look prettier, be more likable, have lots of friends, but most importantly fit in with the rest of the kids.
My mom asked if I would be interested in writing about Under Armour’s kids’ line of clothes. Yeah. Duh. Sometimes moms ask the silliest questions. My mom didn’t tell me the package was coming though! When I saw the Under Armour, I immediately thought the colors and the design were awesome!!!!!! You could probably tell from the unboxing video that I was a little bit excited.
If you haven’t looked at Under Armour lately, they have a lot of variety of colors and designs. Some of them have sayings, some of them have the Under Armour logo and I have even seen shirts with a skeleton shaped as the Under Armour logo. That’s cool for boys, but I wish they would add a sparkly or rainbow logo to their line. I also wish they had a shirt that says “be proud of who you are.” I really need one that says “My happiness glows out of these clothes” because that’s how I feel when I wear Under Armour!
Under Armour is AGAIN on my holiday wish list and my parents can find some really cute stuff at several retail stores and online. I’ve even added Under Armour shoes to my list because a lot of people say they are comfy. I love almost all of their stuff.
Is there a tween in your family that is as crazy for Under Armour as I am?
