End of Summer Fling

Happy Monday, babes. Who else is feeling the end of summer vibes? My birthday is next week, and it always marks a fresh start for me. I use to hate my birthday as a kid- lined up perfectly with the beginning of the school year. I still do not like celebrating, but now as an adult, I love how my day lines up with the change of the seasons. It is a time of reflection, and a shift naturally can happen. I know my life is about to feel a little non-stop soon. I am traveling to Napa, San Francisco, New Orleans and New York City all in four weeks. It will be a whirl wind, but I am excited that 26 is starting with a bang. Looking forward to the grind of airports, boarding passes and plenty of black coffee. (I know, most people hate that part of traveling. I am crazy, right?) 
Before my adventures arrive, I am soaking in the final moments of LA summer. It is my favorite time in the city, and I find any excuse to be outside. My fashion fling for August has been red gingham.  I have shared my love for black gingham this summer (here, and here). I love this off the should top by Soprano. I tied the top in a knot, for a more undone look. This print, of course, embodies vintage trends of the past. I just updated the look with a structure mini skirt, and a trendy bracelet bag. This look is feminine, sexy and flattering with a healthy tan. I am also loving my new short hair. It is SO easy to style. I wish I would have chopped my hair sooner. Contemplating cutting shorter- what do you guys think? 

So cheers to the end of summertime. The past three months, I have gained some momentum towards my most passionate/daunting goals. I took time to discover some confidence (which I secretly think was there the whole time). I always encourage you all, to slow down, and appreciate how far you've come. Journal, meditate, take a long hike- feel out what has changed or shifted in you. Lastly, I am most grateful for all the travels and people that defined my summer.
