So I took the leap. If you can't tell I chopped off my hair. I suppose it dawned on me that I've been growing out my hair for what? Two years. Yes, two years now and, besides when I venture outside, I had kept it in a bun on the top of my head. Partly, because it was work to pump any volume into it and mostly because it was double the amount of work to do anything with it. Sure, I loved my long hair but I felt as if it simply hung there and did nothing for my face shape. So after a night of giving Nicholas his monthly hair cut I declared to him I'm cutting it off... 20 minutes later my long brunette locks were laying in a pile on the bathroom floor. The first week was filled with a whirlwind of "I love it's" and "what did I do's" but I can officially say I'm glad I took the plunge. It has also lead to my new love of a bright red lip. whatyaknow.

I love living in the city. There is something about being able to order in at the wee hours of the night that just speaks to me. Although, it is trips to my hometown that reminds me of how beautiful it is beyond the edges of the buzzing city. An impromptu voyage home over the weekend steered Nicholas and me to this beautiful hill top. The sun and light breeze made pulling out this tiny summer dress feel like perfection.

Some days a girl just needs to say "chuck it"... and throw on a casual outfit. However, this often proves difficult for me since dressing too "down"often leaves me feeling undone and simply out of my element. Don't get me wrong, when the occasion calls for a casual attire I can provide but it's the days where I simply can not deal with the heat as well as looking well put together that I often am left a flustered mess. Although, I find my chucks are often the cure for this unnecessarily stressful condition. It is the perfect mix of relaxed vintage and classic that make these sneakers my go-to for any low key outfit. Plus, this faux leather and zipper skirt also adds the perfect punch of edginess.
