black hair & beach days…

Bonjour, all! How has your lovely summer weekend been going thus far? I myself am exhausted and feel a bit of a cold coming on… crossing my fingers that a restful Sunday will help.

Anyways! Let’s chat hair for a brief moment, okay? Yay!

I just adore Studio 514… Alexis did the most wonderful job on my hair this time around. As you may know, I’m a natural brunette, and have been dyeing my locks pitch black for about a year or so now. Prior to my departure from California I of course popped into my fave salon for a fresh coloring. And then proceeded to snap a few photographs, obviously. 😉

I’ve been head-over-heels in love with this vibrant, casual yellow dress from Forever 21 lately – it is perfect summer attire. J’adore!

I’ll be back quite soon with heaps of London, Dublin, & CA shots for you all – hopefully I’ll have ample time to share over the next few weeks of my au-pairing job here in Toulouse. And then! On to bigger and better places/things!

Sending hearts,
