Blue Is For Girls!

I’ve never been a big fan of pink… I’ve always liked blue more. Blue reminds me of the water, of the sea. My happy place.

As humanity progresses, labeling people is becoming less and less acceptable, and gender is no longer strictly black and white. More labels, such as Zara, are releasing unisex or genderless collections. Pink is no longer a girls’ color and blue isn’t the boys’ shade of choice. Sex is no longer defined, in fashion at least, by a certain shape or specific color.

I remember vividly being around 4 or 5 years old and crying my eyes out on Christmas when my brother’s present and mine got mixed up. See, I didn’t want a Barbie doll. I wanted my brother’s sherif’s set, but of course my brother didn’t want the doll either. For a long time, we were told to conform to a certain gender stereotype… But not anymore!

IMG_1484 IMG_1512It’s our responsibility to teach the new generation gender equality, so hopefully equal pay and other sexist problems will be history. One of my favorite true feminists is Emma Watson. Not only she’s a a great actress, she’s also a brilliant young lady, working hard for gender equality. One of my favorites quotes for her is “Gender equality not only liberates women but also men from prescribed gender stereotypes “. No gender or specific group of people will ever gain from any type of discrimination. To reach our full potential as individuals and entity, we should look at each other as unique people and not as just this or that.

Let’s drop all the labels, and be kind to one another. Treat everyone with the respect they deserve!

    Very motivating post! I too prefer blue over pink. It defines me more…a little girly, yet still slightly tomboyish. I hate when things affiliated with specific genders; it’s so sexist to me! Like cleaning being a woman’s job and the outdoors being a man’s job…how foolish! I am definitely a feminist and believe we should be given equal respect like men are, whether it’s work or anything else. I could go on and on about this topic lol. But I’m in love with this outfit…love that blouse and those gladiator heels! Perfection 🙂

      I totally agree with you! Thankfully we weren’t born in the 1920’s or something at least nowadays we are mostly equal (but not quite yet either).

      Thank you for stopping by Candace!

    I loved this post, I really think gender roles are outdated. I grew up around all boys and I was kind of expected to be one of the boys, I do love pink but it was never pushed on me as a child and I don’t think that pink defines me as a girl or woman but I do love me some pinky shades haha

    I have never been one who likes pink, no even when I was a child and my go to colours are always white, black, grey, beige and blue. I agree that time has changed, it’s no longer pink for girls and blue for boys and I think the change is a great thing. Love that off shoulder top on you and you pulled off this monotone look beautifully.

    I actually like pink over blue; but lately I’ve been loving any color as long as the style fits me! I love how Emma Watson is speaking up for feminism. It’s not only for #allwomen but for #allmen as well! Gender roles are so last century. Really. We should stop putting a gender on everything – like how pink is only for girls, etc. Nice post!

  10. June 24, 2016 / 6:43 pm

    This is beautifully said! I couldn’t agree more (and while I love pink now) I grew up hating pink and loving blue because I didn’t want liking pink to mean something about me.

    Great post!

    Actually, up until the 20th century, blue was considered a girl color and pink was a boy color, because pink was a whited out version of red (the color of blood and warfare). Which is why the inside of the Ohio state house is painted pink. The more you know!

    But seriously, great post girl! And I love this outfit. You look great in blue!

    Blue is apparently one of the favorite colors of mine and my hubby. So our daughter ends up wearing a lot of blues. Totally support the gender equality 🙂

    Even though I looove pink, I totally agree with you! I am trying to teach my daughter that she can like blue and play with toys that are ‘for boys’! Hopefully one day everyone will just be themselves with out the need for gender stereotypes and expectations!

    Love this outfit and I completely agree! Blue is one of my favourites as well, although when I was little I thought that pink/purple were simply because that’s all that was on the packaging of girls toys. I love love love your heels here – absolutely gorgeous!

    Same here, I’ve always liked blue a lot more than pink, and I used to like Legos way more than Barbies.
    This outfit is really up my street!
