Whether it's one simple word on a barrette, or a statement splashed across a sweatshirt, fashion lets us declare it when we wear it.

As someone who loves to communicate and express myself, I'm really loving how so many brands are encouraging us to wear our thoughts on our sleeves. Or on our heads. Or in our hair. Or down our legs. Or across our booties.
The choice is ours, and there are so many fun choices.
The message is this: it's quite o.k. to tell the world you are confident and comfortable with body you're in. That you've got it goin' on. That you're blessed. That you're a hot mess. Or that you're having a bad day and they'd better step the 'f' off.
So don't be shy. Tell people your name. Remind them to stand six feet away. Be bold. Be awesome and amazing. Say what's on your mind with what you wear.
And live out loud.
