Happy International Women's Day!

Today, March 8, we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women all around the world. The day also stands as a call to action for equality by raising awareness, participating in marches, investing in the future of women, and connecting with the ones you treasure. The dedicated day has gained momentum in most recent years as women are becoming more and more empowered, and serves as a day to recognize inspiring females of all ages, ethnicity, and background.  

There is something about being surrounded with strong, ambitious, and beautiful women that I find so inspiring so when I was asked by a fellow blogger to be a part of an #InternationalWomensDay shoot I was thrilled. When I started my blog I would have never guessed that I was simultaneously entering a community of empowering, driven and determined go-getters. The Houston influencers I have met bring their A game – they're kind, professional, creative, and sharp, and they value a sense of community and mentorship among one another that is always prevalent and encouraging. I have learned so much from these women who are driving successful businesses and brands while doing what they love, and it's refreshing that despite personal success these women still celebrate and encourage one another's successes and wins. 

Beyond the blogging and fashion industry, I am inspired by the incredible women in my life, the women making an impact here in the Houston community, and the many leaders making a difference around the world. There are so many powerful women that are forever inspiring me and today is for you.

Looking for a way to give back? Get involved with global campaign Chime for Change, co-founded by Beyoncé and Salma Hayek, that is tenaciously raising awareness and funds to promote education, health and justice for girls and women.
