Does anyone else have a crazy cowlick?
80′s Bangs; no hairspray required.
I’ve been dealing with my front cowlick since I was a kid, but it wasn’t until I cut off all my hair that I realized there is also a giant swirl on the back of my head.
When I had longer hair gravity would keep everything tame and hanging downwards. Now with my short crop the hair grows every which way. It’s quite funny when I am outside in the wind and my hair turns into a major Alfalfa.
My lovely hairdresser has a plan, in the near future she’ll be cutting my hair even shorter and I’ll be sure to update you all when it happens!
The return of fall weather has me happy to cozy up in layers and scarves and has me sad as beach clothes and sandals are put away. Fall is always a productive season for me, and after a summer of having fun it’s more important than previous years for me to get things accomplished. Big plans and ideas for my business need to be implemented, wellness projects need to be amped up and life needs to make more sense again.
Online I found the little bicycle patch, now it lives on the shoulder of my jacket. This cute coat I choose at the last swap had a black stain that wouldn’t wash out and sewing on the patch was a cute and simple solution. Also I have a haircut planned for this week, this cut has turned so shaggy. Short hair grows out fast!

So I did say that I’d be showing you three wedding outfits this summer, but I have a little secret… I wore this twice. Faux pas I know but it was for a completely different crowd and I never got photos the first time so I wore it again. Also I added the big black flower the second time around.
If you are wondering where I am it’s Galiano Island.
The day started off foggy and as you can see above the sun came out just in time.

This is my first of three wedding outfits I will be wearing this summer.
This has a vintage feel with the rhinestone leaf barrette and white beaded purse as the highlight accessories.
Ideally I’d wear this dress to the next wedding as well but I wore it to her sisters wedding two years back. So now I am looking at my wardrobe to see if I can pull off a fancy look with my more casual pieces. The wedding is taking place outdoors on a farm, so I think a little bit of whimsy would go well. These are the three outfits I am considering, and all would be worn with my new short hair and the gold flats from above.
This flowery Bitten dress which I never seem to wear without a blouse underneath will be dressed up with a hair flower, red clutch and silver jewelry.
For the crochet blouse and gold silk skirt I am thinking either a white feather headband or simple long silver earrings.
And the bicycle dress would be pretty with white drop earrings and the white beaded purse from above.

There have been a few beach days, but mostly it’s just raining.
One good thing about rain in June is I get to wear the cute rain boots I received as a gift last winter.
And this always lovely rain hat.
My apartment looks pretty good in this shot.
