Summer is Leaving

The Summer days are leaving us. I'm not completely upset about it though. Only because I really took advantage of the season and had a great time. Getting settled into our new home , epic pool days with friends, and just having those long Sunny days with great vibes.  I went for a walk to the farmers market and almost died. Like seriously, I was melting . But then of course I was like Ash , get it together. The Summer is leaving us and I have to take full advantage of all the Sun I have left. This dress is by Chelsea and Violet which I think its a fairly new brand. The ruffle detail complimented by the  light and airy lavender color was perfect for a summer day out. This dress will make and appearance again I promise. I have emotional attachments to the things I buy.  No matter what it is , a book, a dress, makeup or whatever. It has to really be special is some way. I end of keeping it forever too. I love that I can create a little time capsule of my life through my wardrobe , furniture, or anything I purchase .

Another epic debate with myself everyday all day is if I should color my hair back dark brown. My natural hair color is very dark brown with dark red tones . It's been a good four years since I didn't have some lighter tones or was all blonde. Coloring my hair blonde has been super fun but as you know its a lot of maintenance and does change your hair slightly depending on how well you take care of it. We shall see which side of me wins because I am definately just ready for some type of hair change . I'm also committed to letting it grow out , usually I get antsy and inspired by short hair and then the next day all my hair gone . This hair growth goal is also a measure of patience.  Working on having patience always as I know it is not my most valuable virtue. Probably because I'm super spontaneous and thrive off living in the moment. I'll be 29 this year and let me tell you , I can feel the shift . I have really come full circle with the balance I need in my life at this time. A combination of both free spirit and staying grounded.
