The modern woman is strong, independent, self assured: she waits for no one and never lets go of her dream. Every day, women rise above stereotype, limitation, and stigmas placed upon them by society, men, and other women. The U.S. Treasury Department is going to put a woman on the $10 bill in 2020 (source: Refinery29). Truthfully, we are our own worst enemy-- women tend to pick apart and degrade each other much more than other sources of discouragement. Fight beside your fellow woman warriors, and guide each other to victory; for we are all modern women, making a name for ourselves in the world.

I am in love with my new shift paisley dress from TOPSHOP! So 60's Mod and perfectly feminine. Bright colors are a summer staple, and it feels good to branch out from my regular monochrome ensemble.

Stay strong beauties!
