casual friday no. 5: International Women’s Day

happy International Women’s Day! to me, this day is meant to empower and inspire women all over the world to recognize our worth, our abilities, and how impactful we can be, while also reminding the world the importance of gender equality. i always love seeing/reading what it means to others, so tell me what today means to you as a woman below!

i’ve seen some really awesome campaigns and ads surrounding today this week, so i thought i’d round some of them up in today’s Casual Friday series!

first up, this Nike video had me in tears… show them what crazy dreams can do!

a little girl wrote Steph Curry a letter when she wanted a pair of basketball shoes and Under Armour didn’t make them in her size. here’s the result! love when a brand listens to their audience! the purple shoe is everything.

benefit cosmetics shuts down their site today to stand up for women. read more about it here!

love this inspirational t-shirt from Gap and it’s under $20.

Barbie is celebrating their 60th anniversary and International Women’s Day by honoring more role models from across the world. love this video, too!

Modcloth is a brand i love and wear, and i can get on board with their motto for IWD.

Net-A-Porter has six tees for sale where 100% off the proceeds go to Women for Women International. my fave is this one!

if you want to read more about the history of International Women’s Day, this is a great article! this year’s theme is #BalanceforBetter

so thankful for all of the incredible women in my life who continue to inspire and uplift me. they are strong, compassionate, unique, powerful, ambitious, and beautiful. happy International Women’s Day! xx
