It seems as a littler girl I always had a favorite Disney princess to go to for inspiration in life. Now you may ask who were my favorites? I had two and to this day they still are my favorites. They are Belle and Ariel, two very different heroines with much in common including finding their voice and strength.
Obviously I have realized all of this as I have gotten older, but something inatly drew me to them even at a young age. I always wanted to play dress up to be like my favorite princess heroines, which not only did my love of fashion develop, but my love of dreams and making them come true became ever so part of my life.
An ensemble is a dream/power armor set that prepares to take me out in the world to make my dreams and passions come true and looking great is just a bonus.
Don’t get me wrong I still love my heroine princesses, but I pull inspiration for my armor from new sources as well like magazines, family, friends and my fellow bloggers. One of my favorites to pull inspiration from is Alicia Lund of Cheetah is the New Black (http://cheetahisthenewblack.com) . She is always an amazing inspiration, Alicia is a true heroine in her own right and in all that she all does, which is why I always love finding inspiration for everything.
She recently posted on rocking denim and here is how I pulled my look together based on Alicia’s ensemble.

It’s a bid, its a plane… it’s an empowered woman ! It’s me !
Feeling empowered and declaring my dreams have not always been easy, but through the years in finding my passion and dreams, feeling empowered and my voice have grown.How do you say did I find my inner power? It started with finding my passion and dreams in fashion and sports, which began when I was young. With fashion comes sports for me because they both have always been loves of my life. With passions come dreams and empowerment, it is not just about the outfit or having a hot dog at a baseball game, but about the memories made with loved ones that come with each, about dreaming, being creative and an empowered woman that I have become.
Fashion and sports for me are about what gives me my strength to keep going with my dreams and how they were possible, spending time with my family and making memories, which allowed me to find my voice.
I have noticed that in society speaking your voice and feeling empowered in our views are not always looked at positively, but in life we can’t please everyone. We have to continue to stay true to ourselves in what we love and dream about and how we can do that is through surrounding ourselves with a support system, make goals each day that will push us to achieve what helps us feel empowered, to find our voice and what we dream about.Life is about dreams and feeling empowered that we can achieve them and have that voice to shout it out to the world!
How do I get empowered every day ? I surround myself with amazing family and friends, daily affirmations with my super hero pose, do a dance party, wear a go to ensemble that helps me feel my best inside and out and do something that I love everyday from fashion to sports.
What do you all do that helps you feel the most empowered ? Leave your empowered moments and activities here. Can’t wait to hear all about it !
