Welcome back from the long weekend of family and friends and general happiness! Now that we’re back into a full week of work (womp) it’s perfect timing for a Happiness Collaboration with my fellow blogger babes Rachel and Jessica!

When Rachel originally polled me about what makes me happy, I said “[w]hen I take some time to do my hair, put on some make up, and wear a fab outfit then I feel much more confident and put together.”
But to go a little deeper, my style happiness doesn’t necessarily come from what I’m wearing, but how I am feeling. Oftentimes people who meet me for the first time, and sometimes even my own friends and family, can’t believe that I measure in at the short stature of 5’1″. My advice is always to think tall and portray yourself as tall! And by tall I mean confident, powerful, and loving yourself.
There’s no impressive segue way into this…but I find that a long coat makes me feel amazing. I can just float along in a structured, fun, and cinched coat. Add some heels and a great hairdo (here’s how I get mine) and I swear I feel like a bazillion bucks.
What makes you feel happy and confident? Let me know in the comments!
p.s. – See how I last styled this coat with an insanely cool hat and scarf.

NOW for the Linkup! Join me as I co-host today’s linkup with Rachel and Jessica! We’re all about what makes us feel happy and confident today!
“Going out with my friends and doing my hobbies makes me happy.”
“When I take some time to do my hair, put on some make up, and wear a fab outfit then I feel much more confident and put together.”
“Things in my daily life that make me feel happy are my heavenly father, family, girls nights, coffee and coffee shop atmospheres, hot baths, straightening my hair, jewelry, leggings and layering my LipSense different ways.”
