Empower Women

Hello all! How was your Easter weekend? This post is going up late because I wanted to spend the weekend with family rather than writing a post. I’m sure you understand!

Today I want to take a minute to talk about the importance for women to lift each other up. I know it is a random topic, but I will get to why I picked it further down. You may have heard/seen the phrase “Empowered women, empower women.” It holds great weight and should be every woman’s life motto. Remember, women can lead from any spot; from the front desk receptionist to the corner office VP to the stay at home mom to the small business owner. We all have something to share and can easily take the time to be kind to each other. Kindness is free! I very briefly shared my thoughts on this subject in 2015, read that post here.

As I venture further and further into this blogging journey I am reminded that I have surrounded myself with a great group of women. However, there are always those out there who (for whatever reason) cling to hate and gain a sense of power by bringing others down.

Style Collective

This brings me to why I picked this topic today. To put it bluntly, blogging is hard. There are a lot of pieces of the puzzle and while research and trial and error are great, sometimes I want someone to show me the way, tell me how they did it, what worked best for them. Some direction! Some women are able to singularly rise up and I applaud them for their success. I feel even when you reach your goals there is always someone trying to reach theirs so why not give them a helping hand.

Somehow I came across Style Collective, a community of fashion and lifestyle bloggers whose experience range from beginner to advanced. The woman behind it is Annie Spano, a true entrepreneur. Since learning of Style Collective I was interested in joining, but had reservations. It is advertised as a community of support, a sisterhood of sorts. I unintentionally connected with Annie on Instagram and instantly felt like she cared and took the time to respond to my questions. For all I know she has someone answering her social media messages, but I like to believe it was her because it came across so genuine. After she answered my million and one questions, I took a leap of faith and applied to join. I am happy to say I am now part of the #GirlBoss tribe. In addition to resources available through Style Collective’s portal, they encourage members to organize local meet ups and build a community of support for each other. I am excited to see where it goes from here and to meet other great women interested in empowering others in the process.

This post turned out to be a what’s happening/help others grow. If it reminded 1 person to pay it forward or to spread kindness then I’ve done something right. To my closest girl friends, thank you for your constant encouragement. I hope I repay you as often as you share kind words with me.

Until next post…xoxo Becca

DRESS: Nordstrom Rack

You’re getting a sneak peek at my Easter dress. Last year I purchased my Easter dress from Nordstrom Rack so when I started looking for a dress for this year of course I went back to Nordstrom Rack and found this great deal. Under $40! I’ve linked other beautiful dresses that caught my eye.

The Look

For spring I love fun and colorful patterns. Since last year I have been obsessed with floral patterns. Granted, I don’t consider this pattern “floral” but it is a very vibrant and definitely spring vibe. The slightly capped sleeves are flattering and add a little more of a modest touch. The scuba knit fabric is super smooth and stretchy.

Overall I am so glad I searched at Nordstrom Rack again this year. I love to have new dresses for events and holidays, but hate paying a ton of money for them.

What are your plans for Easter weekend? Spending it with family? I’m excited for a good meal and dessert I didn’t have to make heehee

Until next post…xoxo Becca
