U - Understated

A fearless southern girl is . . .

Understated
She shows restraint. Like an elegant home in which the style and design are not over-done, she too steers clear of the gaudy and the attention-grabbing. Yes, she should always look put-together, but a flashy ring on every finger or baubles that drag her earlobes to her shoulders draw attention to her insecurities. Sequins an noon are a no-no. We're not soap opera stars. We're fearless southern girls. Face those insecurities. Don't over dress them and think you've camouflaged them from other people or yourself.

Always have liked the word understated, and you've given it a bit of a boost today:)

According to some pictures I've seen, the gals with the sequins, long dangly earrings, oversized rings on every finger, and spandex (we can't forget the spandex!) show enough restraint to wait until the middle of the night to put on some blue eyeshadow and emerge from their homes. To go to Walmart.

Great word choice, and great image you've created!
