Girl Power and a Linkup

Fashion Linkup

Top:  Shein // Skirt:  MakeMeChic // Shoes:  Converse

I don’t know what it is, but whenever I hear the words girl power, I immediately think of the Spice Girls.  Now, I know some people might think I’m crazy for saying this, but to all my 90’s babies, I feel like The Spice Girls took over the world and showed us how powerful women can be, especially if we become one.  In my opinion I feel like they were some of the most influential women of my era.  Now I know, I know, that sounds crazy because there’s so many good bands/people that came out around that time, or so many good bands/people that were more influential, and yes this is correct, but the Spice Girls showed us what diversity was (there was a Spice Girl for everyone), they showed us how powerful 5 women could be, and they showed us what it meant to be loyal and stick with one another, minus Ginger Spice and her leaving which I’m still butthurt about lol.

I know it sounds dumb, but the Spice Girls really taught us about sisterhood.  It taught us about loving our besties like sisters.  I was never able to find that one girl who was my soulmate (in best friend terms).  I thought I did, but she had completely ditched me when I came back from Texas several years ago.  Since then I’ve been extremely careful with who I trust and who I’m friends with.  Rightfully so, because if you were at one of the worst spots in your life, you would expect your best friend to be there, but not in my case.  I did a lot of soul searching and a lot of learning to love myself and knowing my worth.  Thanks to this experience I have been able to open up to females again.  There are two girls (who I just posted about last week in this post) who have been able to get into my heart.  Both of them (one is my age, one is younger) have opened my eyes to so many things.  They have taught me so much both about themselves, their views, life, and myself.  They have been there for me through a lot of shit, one of them was with me for one of the darkest parts of my life.  They have both seen me ugly cry and they have both seen me cracking up until I’m in tears.  Both of them have showed me that I can still have girls in my life who I trust.  Of course my walls are still up and they don’t know my deepest darkest secrets (so to speak), but the only two people who know EVERYTHING about me are my fiance and my mom.

I have spoken with a lot of females who have not been able to find their one best friend that’s a female because of reasons similar to mine.  Ladies, can we stop being petty and empower one another instead?  I like empowering women so much better than not trusting them.

    Cute cute cute graphic tee and I like how you styled it! I am with you on this boat. Growing up I thought my mom and I were going to be best friends. Did not happen. In HS, Imwas desperate enough that everyone I got along with became a “best” friend. Of course, only to get hurt that they wanted to be “best” friends with somebody else. Fast forward to today, I met someone at my old work that I didn’t think I would click with but did the instant we were left in a room all by ourselves to work on a project together. We have been through each other’s good and bad days and would consider her the best friend I was searching for. Crazy how life works huh?

    Both my daughter and my sons partner say much the same about the Spice girls. I’m not sure who did it for my generation but I did used to look at Sophia Loren and love her confidence. I think she was doing it for women as well as men xx
