Printable: Little But Fierce

8" X 10" print

I don't really think of myself as little, or fierce for that matter. It doesn't matter who I am interacting with, I never feel small. But the reality is I am (I am barely 5'1")! I guess it is the fact that I rarely notice my stature that makes others perceive me as fierce. I definitely am not afraid to back down from a challenge or voice my opinion.

I recently learned that my nickname around the office is "il Duce." Which, you may or may not know, was Mussolini's nickname (of course they mean this in a purely funny way, it is not meant to be derogatory). And apparently this saying has been assigned to me as my mantra. I think it is such a great saying (it is from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream)! So, I made this cute printable to display with pride in my office!

Enjoy the print and may you also be fierce in the pursuit of your dreams!

PS - Speaking of my small size, I have always loved the Jcrew Bubble necklace, but it is so overwhelming on me (literally comes to my waist lol)! But the other day in Jcrew, the little girls Bubble necklace was hanging by the register and it was on sale. As a joke I tried it on, but the joke was on me because it was super cute!

I think I can get away with it, what do you think?

  1. I love this quote. I found a shirt on Etsy that had this on it, and I got it for my mom. It so personifies her! I like the colors you chose!

  2. I think the necklace is adorable! Definitely get it!

  3. This is a great quote, love your prints... as usual. You could totally get away with that kid necklace! It's a really pretty color and I agree I can never buy the bubble necklaces because they overwhelm me!

  4. Love the printable! And I think that necklace will look great :)


  5. I am so glad you posted this, because I can personally relate! I'm actually 4'11'' and unfortunately, haven't grown for a while now. Looks like the end has come for me! I have definitely learned to embrace who I am and love the perks of fitting into both kids and women's clothes! I even buy kids Joe Jean's (they're perfect!). Hope you have a relaxing Saturday!

  6. I always love the printables you share, great quote! I think you could totally get away with the child's necklace, and let's face it, children seem to dress more like mini adults then children these days; it definitely doesn't look childish. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  7. Can I just tell you how much I LOVE reading your blog?! Also, I totally feel the same way about the bubble necklaces. I have a small frame, and they seem to take over my body when I wear one. Great advice about the kids' necklaces! So cute! :)



  8. 100% go for the necklace! Especially with J.Crew the trends a=for kida are inspired by the adult lines. Additionally, I know of several stores down here in Newport that sell that same style alongside the larger one -- to adults!
