What does it mean to be empowered?! It’s a beautiful word, right? To me it means being able to channel your own personal power to work toward your dreams and goals. There’s a new brand that celebrates empowering women and empowering small business entrepreneurs.
MLE Empowering Apparel is dedicated to helping you express your values in a fashionable way that will hopefully encourage sharing and discussion.
The first time I wore this cool tee, I was walking down the street when I heard a banging on the window next to me. A women working out at the local gym was banging on the window to get my attention to give my tee a thumbs up. That was a fun way to start the day.
Not only that, but MLE uses 10% of their profit to give micro-loans to small businesses in Africa. Not a handout, but empowering help.
Read a few success stories here. And read about the two fabulous ladies behind MLE Empowering Apparel, Emily & Maud.
A few red, white, and/or blue favs from last week’s party …
Lisa of Peridot Skies looks casual cute and ready for a picnic.
Erin of Happily Howards looks lovely in red and ready for a party.
And Nora of Jacket Society looks ready for a day of lunch and shopping!

I love the graphic tee. Although I wear a lot of dresses and skirts in the summer, I'm still and jeans and tee gal at heart. Great outfit! Love that flares are back in. I was scouring the stores last year and couldn't find a good pair that fit. Maybe better luck this fall. 🙂 xx-S
