It's Good to Be a Girl

Dresso c/o // Sandals c/o // Bag c/o // Watch c/o // Sunglasses c/o // Ring c/o

This little number here has been a favorite work look of mine.  Is it just me, or is there something so empowering about putting on a nice shift dress, some strappy heels and a great bag?!  Being feminine or girly doesn't make you weak, it makes you "you."  It makes you strong.  I love showing off my femininity.  And Vera Bradley couldn't agree more. 

Vera Bradley believes there are a million reasons why it's good to be a girl.  Not a handful.  Not some.  One million.  Vera Bradley was actually founded by 2 women in 1982 when they realized that there was a serious lack of feminine luggage options.  Everything was black, gray and brown and oh so boring.  Vera Bradley wanted to show people why it's good to be a girl, and they've done just that with their many different styles, colors, patterns and materials. 

There are so many challenges that women face that can make it tough being a girl, but I think they just end up making us stronger.  For every challenge there is in being a girl, there are 2 times as many advantages to being a girl.  We can dress like a woman or throw on a menswear inspired suit.  We can rock eyelash extensions, a mani and pedi, makeup and a pair of sky high heels.  And that's just weeks after giving birth to a 7 lb baby.  One of my favorite quotes ever is "Here's to strong women.  May we know them.  May we be them.  May we raise them."  If there's one thing in life that I do right, I want it to be that.    

Why do you love being a girl?  Check out Vera Bradley here, and let me know why you love being a girl.
