Live Colorfully

As 2016 approaches its official end, I cannot help but reflect on the many wonderful experiences that I had this year- culminating with my trip to Africa!!! Yes, it was a hear of highs and lows, but I feel optimistic and determined to gear my focus on all of the positive moments in which I felt my happiest! 
Closing out the final month of the year with a trip that most definitely stirred and changed me was without a doubt thee top highlight of the year. The friends that I made, the people I met, the wonderful experiences we shared, all made it truly the trip of a lifetime. As I look forward to 2017 I feel more determined than ever to live in the moment, to fully appreciate my personal journey, to learn from my mistakes, and yes:
to  L I V E  C O L O R F U L L Y!!!

Until next time Loves,
XO

  7. You look wonderful in this outfit. I love it. Did you take these photos in Africa? The wall looks exactly like one in my own neighbourhood (and will be featured in my next post). I thought for sure you took them here!

    1. Thank you Leelo!!! Styling socks and shoes was initially a bit out of my style norms- but I have since grown to love the duo - I am always looking for opportunities to pair them up ;)
