I have a fear of getting haircuts.  The thought of even getting a trim is enough to keep me away from my hair dresser for six months.'s been six months already.  I thought I'd play it safe and had my mom do me the favor of trimming my hair.  I told her I only wanted to trim off "two or three inches."  Somehow, those three inches translated into six inches.  This is not the first time I've had people chop off more of my hair than I asked for.  It's happened quite a few times.  I actually used to cry about it.  But I've learned throughout my 27 years of existence that there are far worse things that can happen to you than a bad hair cut.  Life goes on, right?  Nothing to cry about here!

I wanted to take these pictures outside because it was such a pretty day.  It was hot and cloudy, which is rare for this part of the Bay Area.  The clouds in the sky seemed to stretch out for miles.   I think there was even thunder.
And the harvest is coming up for this vineyard.  So this may very well be the only time you get to see the crop (haha...get it?) in the background of my pictures.  Harvest was always a big deal in my home growing up.  I've always been around wineries and vineyards.  I've been fortunate enough to get to experience and witness the process of winemaking.  It all starts in the fields with the hardworking men that tend the vineyards.  Remember that next time you take a sip of wasn't so glamorous at one point.  Sweat and labor went into that cool glass of bubbly.  You can thank the vineyard workers for that :)

Dots_1 Dots_2 Dots_3 Dots_4 Wearing:

Forever 21 dress
Vintage satchel
Topshop 2 part geek sandal
H&M headband
Estee Lauder "Stay Scarlet" lipstick

This dress is super old.  I think it may be 10 years old.  It came in navy as well.  I couldn't decide which color to buy.  I went with the red of course!  At the time, I felt my closet needed a little more red in it.  The first time I wore it, I went to a Mariachi Festival.  I wore these cute red suede peep toe wedges from Steve Madden and a thick white headband from Forever 21.  I think I may even still have a picture from that day.  It's funny how my clothing always ties back to some distant memory.

Keeping this post short and sweet today.  Got a lot to do!  Thanks for reading :)
