Happy New Year! Today is the chance to set out on a year long adventure filled with love, laughter and a whole lotta incredible memories. And clothes, of course! 

It's probably just me and my far-too-corny brain, but I find something really empowering about the start of a new year. It's a fabulous time to hit refresh and make sure your life is filled with joy and fun. This year, I'm going to make more of a conscious effort to improve myself internally. I aim to be more positive and to live in the moment. As I get further and further into my twenties, I find that the years go faster and faster. So, as cliche as it sounds, we have to grab every moment with both hands and embrace it. 

To start the new on a colorful note, I opted for this retro blue, floral print dress with my 'John Lennon' style, mirrored, sunglasses. My new Schutz sandals were my Christmas gift from Jake and they are officially my favorite thing in my closet. There's something so casual, yet elegant, about the lace-up-detailing mixed with the on-trend gladiator shape. And then there's my good old, been-featured-in-a-million-posts hat. I promise it won't appear in too many outfit posts this year..... NOT!

Wishing my beautiful luxe-rs all the best for 2016.

Rachel

  47. Beautiful post (as normal!) I think your 365 page book this year is going to be one for the ages! I love your short sun dress and wedges from your BF (they are seriously to die for). However, what i love most is your nails. That color, that shape with your outfit is just everything. Cheers to 2016 being amazing for you :)

  48. Rachel, I'm absolutely swooning over this outfit! I love everything about it; the print and color of that dress is pure perfection! I agree and have been working on myself mentally and emotionally, as well. I think it's so important for us to be as positive and optimistic about life because whether we realize or not, we are what we attract and what we attract is what we are, for the most part at least. Our words and attitude have so much power and influence over our lives and this is something that I too have notice as I've gotten further into my twenties. You're not kidding, after 24, I feel like it's moving so fast; already 27...what happened?! Anyway, I felt this post to be very inspiring, so thank you for sharing so much here, in both your look and goals! I wish you the absolute best this 2016; I know it will be amazing!
