Work Wednesday: A New Season


Today's the first day of Spring and I wish I could bring in the new season with a cute spring skirt or dress but it's still cold in Seattle. I'm still wearing a jacket and pants... Don't let the sun fool you. It was 50 degrees today! But nonetheless, the nice weather was such a treat :)

Besides wearing spring wear, I'm looking forward to this new season so I can do more things outdoors: go on more walks, explore new hiking trails and eat outside!

What are you excited to do this Spring?

Walking On Sunshine

This past weekend, I was able to enjoy a few warm days in sunny California. It felt so good to wear a dress and sandals again. For this outfit, I decided to wear my floral skirt as a top over my dress. I have a feeling this will be my go-to outfit for Spring.
On another note, there's nothing I love more than sunshine and my boyfriend! Those are few more things to add to my happy list... I'm walking on sunshine whoa and don't it feel good :)

Work Wednesday: Color Me Happy

The time has finally come! In a few days, I will be in sunny California and I am beyond excited. This Seattleite gets to enjoy a few warm days! Let's hope I don't overpack again. Check back next week to hear about my trip :)

Lately, I've been in a happy mood. It is the kind of happy that makes me want to sing and dance to "You Make Me Dreams" (just like Joseph Gordon Levitt in 500 Days of Summer). I haven't been this happy in a long time! Don't get me wrong, I usually am happy but the past few months have been a little rough. I knew it was going to pass. Today, I'm happy and I want to stay happy. Right now, I'm intentionally trying to "Do More of What Makes You Happy".

Here's a few things that make me happy:
  • Sleeping in
  • Watching Ellen videos
  • Thrift shopping
  • Nature walks
  • Taking pictures
  • Being surrounded by my family and friends
I know it sounds silly but I highly encourage everyone to stop and think: what makes YOU happy?
