What messages should we be sharing with our young boys? A question we recently asked @chimamanda_adichie, author of #DearIjeawele, #Americanah, #WeShouldAllBeFeminists (just to name a few). Her response? It’s time to re-define masculinity and stop the idea that men and women are so different: “We should teach boys that women are not ‘special.’ That women are not another species of angels. (And maybe we should also teach girls this.) Women are human. Which means they are good and bad and kind and unkind. Which means that the moral standards for them should not be any higher than for men.” Read the full convo with Chimamanda on goop.com. (photo: @Julia_Noni / Trunk Archive)
I love this message so much. I never think of myself as “better” because I’m a female. I’m a human. We all have the same chances, the same opportunities, the same dreams. Teach them young to treat each other as equal. Genders aside.
2 // These Worth While Paper Cards make my heart happy
Seriously?! YES. Thank you WWP for showing that love has no boundaries. They also have tons of other paper goods worth checking out.
I’ve ALWAYS wanted a pair (summer is RAIN central in FL) but I never liked the Hunter price tag – especially for a boot I’ll wear 2-3 months out of the year. So I’m stoked for their collab with Target. Maybe little man might score a pair. Launching 4/14.
Anyone else a Fresh obsessed? I loveeee their stuff. And this color gets all the heart eyes. A touch of punch on your lips. I’m not a lipstick person, but I think this is the perfect option.
5 // FREE People Obsessions
Every so often I’ll stumble upon FreePeople.com and freak out. Between them and Madewell, I swear I would have the most perfect closet situation. In the mean time, I’ll just daydream about this perfect outfit.
