Hello + welcome to another week on Stylishly Good Vibes! I’m so excited for today’s post because I’m bringing back a concept I started while I was living in South Carolina. Fresh Favorites is a compilation of blog posts dedicated to sharing one item I’ve been obsessing over. This week, I’m chatting about meaningful graphic tees.
I used to be a graphic tee hoarder. Seriously, when Delia’s was still a thing when I was in middle school, I used to get at least two new tees every month. It was my jam. Believe it or not, I still have a couple of them!
Many of those graphic tees from way back when weren’t really meaningful — they just had cool things on them. Today when I’m searching for graphic tees, I want them to support a cause or create a conversation.
The tee I’m wearing in today’s post says “Empowered Women Empower Women.” Now that’s a tee I can stand behind! I think it’s so important to use your voice, especially in today’s political climate. Even as a writer, sometimes I trip over my words when asked about more controversial topics. But, a shirt like this speaks for itself. It’s like the introduction I need to get my thoughts flowing.
I’ve always shied away from talking politics for fear that my voice might not be seen as valid. It really wasn’t until I started to watch and read the news everyday that I began to feel more open about voicing my opinion. Everyone has a level of comfort they feel in complicated situations. For me, being as educated as I can be makes me feel confident.
Plus, having this platform and using it to share parts of my life has made me realize how important it is to speak up. I guess this is me telling all of you that I plan to start writing a lot of new content for the blog — content that’s not always about fashion!
If you’re afraid to voice your thoughts on certain topics, that’s okay! Sometimes all you need is a really empowering graphic tee to help get your confidence juices flowing.
“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” — Dr Martin Luther King Jr.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for this week! I’ll be back on the blog again next week with another new blog post for ya!
Until next time!
