California Dreaming

California Dreaming_Whimsical_Sunset_What Would V Wear_Dezzal Dress_

Greetings from California! I cannot stop admiring the wonders of nature — my friend Michelle and I had the amazing opportunity to shoot at Riley Park during sunset hours. My soul expands thinking of this experience I got to share with one of my closet friends…

California Dreaming_Dezzal Chiffon Dress_Sunset_What Would V Wear

As I’m writing this I’ll be already on my way to San Francisco…My family and I visited a dear friend of mine, Michelle, owner and founder of Gold Dust And Sugar Lust in Southern California for a few days before we’re heading up North. Michelle is a beautiful soul, and I couldn’t be more blessed to have her in my life. I attended her baby shower this past weekend (if you follow me on Snapchat @WhatWouldVWear you’ll probably saw it!) which was by far the most beautiful shower I’ve been to! Everything was perfection but this is what she deserves! If you don’t already follow her, do it now! Check out her blog HERE. She truly is beautiful inside and out!

On a different note: I’ll be doing some traveling all around California, and even though I will have new content on here almost every day, I won’t be able to respond to your comments, etc. until I return from my trip! Hoping you’ll understand!

As always, thanks much for dropping by & have a fabulous Monday!

Love you all.

    Oh, you are a vision in this dress. Vanessa, I am having the hardest time finding the right words to tell you how much last week meant to me, but I know you know. And it meant the world to me that you were with me during such a magical time. San Fran is lovely but you belong in Southern California! Keep on California dreaming!! LYM and M and M! xx Michelle
