Being a woman and LINK-UP

Women’s Day?

I didn’t know it was “Women’s Day” until I saw some posts on Bloglovin.  Ironically I had been debating on what to post today, and had already started drafting this blog post a week ago.   I was raised by parents that taught me I can do anything I want, regardless of my petite size, being a female, or any other “setbacks”.  They taught me to overcome any difficulties in life by approaching it as a new challenge to overcome.

I may upset some people here, but I personally do not and would not march about Women’s Rights.  I don’t see why women need to separate themselves.  If women want to be equals, we should act as equals.   If you are interested in starting a debate, I also do not believe that women are paid unequally.  As someone very familiar with data and how it can be misunderstood (correlation versus causation, ugh), I have some supporting arguments.  If you’re interested, however, this YouTube video sums most of it up pretty well.

Are women better at some things?  Are men better at some things?  Yes, of course, genetics play a role, but it doesn’t mean that as a woman I cannot learn the skills to defend myself, hike alone, or do math.  Maybe carrying a backpack will be harder for me than for my  husband.  This isn’t because I’m a woman.  This is because I have less body weight and shoulder strength.

Having lots of money, shoes, and dresses doesn’t make me a strong woman.  Having my own job and my own money to support myself without the help of anyone else, the confidence to stand up for myself, to not care about what other people think, and to be able to take criticism constructively – that’s what makes me a strong woman.

Women’s Day Fashion

Being partially a fashion blog…On a fashion note, being a woman means a couple things.  Sometimes, there are days where I want to feel beautiful and feminine and wearing a dress and heels makes me feel that way.  Sometimes what it means to me (and my inner tomboy) is being able to wear comfortable, somewhat masculine clothing, and feel confident in those outfits as well.  I really love being able to wear my favorite jeans or comfortable leggings and a flannel shirt on weekends.

  • Flannel/plaid shirts are super stylish paired with leggings or skinny jeans and they’re usually pretty comfortable too.  Another look I’m really into is pairing with Chambray shirts instead.  Of the 3 shirts shown above, I’m really digging the pretty blue one, which would look great as a splash of color especially if you have blue eyes!
  • Pairing the flannel with some slim pants usually looks best because it adds a touch of femininity when you pair a looser shirt like those.  Above I am showing 3 great options with brands I like wearing. If you’re looking for new jeans, the blue denim jeans shown are the most comfortable pair I own.
  • Personally I will wear this look with a comfortable and slim shoe, such as a casual sneaker or slip-on shoe.

 

Do you have an outfit that makes you feel empowered?
