#EmpoweredWomenEmpowerWomen

If you follow me on Instagram or if you’ve ever attended a Ditch the Clique event, you know my life’s work revolves around #empoweredwomenempowerwomen. And with over 400K tags on Instagram alone, I’m clearly not the first woman to recognize the importance of female empowerment.

But girl…can I be SUPER real with you?

How I’m feeling after one year of marriage…

How I’m feeling after one year of marriage…

And just like that, I’m celebrating my first wedding anniversary…WILD! It honestly feels like just yesterday my best friend and I were being married by my dad at an intimate Central Park ceremony surrounded by 25 of our closest family and friends. And as much as I’ve always hated when women say “my wedding was the best day of my life” it really, truly was.

But as mentioned in my post 8 Years Later I (FINALLY) Married My Best Friend (but it wasn’t always easy), it REALLY isn’t always easy. We’ve had our moments and guess what? We still do!

Although New York City is on the brink of normalcy with retailers and restaurants slowly reopening (within restriction of course), I’m ready to show off my summer style NOW (even if it is just for dinner with my husband or socially distant drinks with friends on my stoop).

One of the BEST things I’ve done for myself during quarantine is edit my wardrobe. Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time asking myself the important wardrobe questions like what colors am I drawn too? What fabrics do I find most comfortable (and sweat the least in LOL)? What styles make me feel the most ME?

Ditch the Clique COMMUNITY

Ditch the Clique COMMUNITY

Okay I admit, I’ve been keeping a secret…

Since launching Ditch the Clique in 2019, I’ve received incredible feedback from a diverse group of women requesting MORE! Following each in-person or online event, women repeatedly ask for more connection and more inspiration BEYOND the event. So (of course) I listened, and have spent the past few months creating EXACTLY what women (just like you) want and need…
