If you follow me on Instagram you already know I went on a fun girl’s trip to Fort Wayne Indiana last weekend. Nothing like a long weekend with your girlfriends. We were fortunate to be invited to tour the Vera Bradley headquarters while on our trip. Not only was it cool to see behind the scenes of one of my favorite brands, as a fellow merchandiser I enjoyed getting to see how they plan for future seasons. I can’t share details about what I saw for future seasons, but I will say there are some amazing products and patterns to come.
I must say though my favorite part about Vera Bradley is not just the fun patterns and unique designs, but what the brand stands for. They uplift women and celebrate what it means to be a girl. You can see my post last year about a million reasons why it’s good to be a girl. I want to talk more in depth though about one of my favorite reasons why it’s good to be a girl, we get to enjoy time with our girlfriends. Guys have friends too, but they don’t share a bond like close girlfriends do.
There is something so magical about having a close girlfriend (or several) who just completely “get you”. Matt loves me, but he can only hear about a pair of shoes I got on sale for so long. But I know I can call up my girlfriend and literally talk about a pair of shoes for an hour if I feel the need to, haha. Girlfriends are with you through the good times and the bad times, which creates a strong love and bond. I am beyond proud to be a woman, and have girlfriends that I can share my life experiences with. I am very outgoing around my friends, but only after I get to know them and feel comfortable. With that being said I don’t have a lot of close friends, but the ones I have I cherish closely. What is one of your favorite thing about being a girl?
