Can y’all tell how happy I am in these pictures? I love looking at photos and knowing I was genuinely happy and loving life when these pictures were taken. In this moment, I was most likely thinking…

1) Betsy Newman is the bomb dot com.

2) I LOVE this dress. It’s giving me LIFE. At first, I wasn’t sure about a maxi in December, but it’s made out of a sweater-knit material that makes this dress more appropriate for the winter (well winter in Los Angeles that is). Also can we talk about the hint of shimmer?! I die. It’s subtle and lets the flower print do its thing but still adds some pizzazz. Overall, this dress has that boho vibe I’m trying to get more into. In 2017, I’m going to try to be all about that “California chic” look aka I’ll be shopping at Revolve a lot.

3) Venice, California is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I mean that bougainvillea! I swear I didn’t intentionally match it to my dress but sometimes things just work out, lol! Speaking of Venice, has anyone been to Gjelina? Every travel blog I’ve read recommends it, but it’s literally booked all the time. One of the reviews I read said it’s easier to be blessed by the Pope than to get a table at Gjelina, lol!

I’ve been in LA with my family for about a week, and I’m feeling so much happiness from the blown-out hair on my head all the way down to my fresh pedicure (pink of course!). Every cliché you’ve heard about “a golden state of mind” is true I swear. As 2016 comes to a close, I know this is exactly the kind of positive energy I want to feel in my life in 2017. What brings you happiness? xx
