When I was at TJ Maxx a few days ago, I saw a shirt in the Junior’s section that read ‘Inspire and Be Inspired.’ Those are pretty powerful words to be found on a t-shirt. For some reason, these words just stuck with me and as a result, inspired today’s post. Inspiration is something everyone looks for from time to time. Whether it is from our family and friends, social media, or the world around us, we all need to be exposed to new ideas so that we can continue to learn and grow. When we are inspired, some of our best ideas are born and our best work flows. Finding inspiration is wonderful, but we also need to remember that it is our responsibility to inspire others as well. Personally, I want to show girls how to be the best version of themselves and not the best version of what society says they should be. By inspiring others, we not only help other people to be happy but we shine a little bit brighter as well.
When searching for inspiration, I love looking at magazines, social media, and other fashion blogs. Looking though a J. Crew magazine a couple of weeks back, I saw an outfit that really resonated with me. I realized that I could recreate the look with pieces that I had in my own closet. Although I did not have the exact pieces from J Crew, I tried my best to create an outfit that was similar.

Inspiration can be found all around us, all we all we have to do is look for it. What inspires you?
