"And then there is California"

So, let’s get this out of the way: I did actually wear almost this same exact outfit on the blog once before.  But that was over a year ago, and I look different now.  Plus I have new sandals and a new way of tying the ties.  So there.

My favorite souvenirs when I’m lucky enough to get to travel are things that I can actually use, which generally means either clothes or stuff for my kitchen.  I bought this dress when I went to California two years ago, and it’s still one of my favorites.  It’s super comfy, with a beautiful print, and it’s just nice enough to be not-too-casual for work.  By the way, my jacaranda tree is almost in full bloom now.  Fall is definitely here.

I cut my own bangs about a week ago, and I accidentally butchered them, so I’m trying out a side part for a little while.  I really like it so far.  It’s nice to change things up a bit without getting a completely new hair style.  I’ve been toying with the idea of going short with my hair again, but for now it’s really nice to be able to braid it whenever I want to.

    Very pretty. I have a thing for buying clothes when I go on vacation. It reminds me of where I’ve been. Love your tiny wolf necklace!
