Wind & Sun

For me, I have two seasons. Big hair season and smaller hair season. You can easily guess by these photos which season I’m entering into. 
A wedding brought me to Chicago this past weekend, which I was photographing at a gorgeous downtown hotel on St. Patrick’s Day. I’m unbelievably sore from it, but it was probably one of the most fun weddings I’ve photographed. I think every single person danced and everyone was incredibly attractive. I felt like I was at a model casting call. I spent Sunday recovering by visiting a handful of my closest friends and doing a little shopping. Karyn, Merl and I went to a vintage seller’s home and I picked up this pretty embroidered cropped jacket and then we headed downtown where I was on the hunt for a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, which I can thank Delta Airlines for since they screwed up my flight and in return, they cut me a nice..and unexpected check.

    I have hair seasons too. Luckily here in Texas the saying goes, "The higher the hair, the closer to God" so I can excuse my frizz and horizontal volume for worship. When I hate it's bigness, I make myself grateful for the volume by putting it up in a top knot.

    I love your wild hair. For me curly hair like yours is sexy. I have wavy hair but not curly. Have you ever thought straighten your hair sometime? I want to see you with straight hair in photo.

    The necklace and the fringe bag, completed you wild hair look.

    Loving your outfit! I too suffer from bigger hair season. I like the bigger hair season as long as my hair isn't a frizz ball!
