Here is a quick look from yesterday afternoon. It was my first day off in like a week so I made sure to make the most of it. The best part was enjoying a fun picnic with my little Mimi at the beautiful Carlyle park here in Old Town, followed by some much needed shopping at Trader Joe's (ohhh how I love their flower and wine isles hah!). I finished the day with a visit to PR at Partners salon in McLean to see my fabulous hair stylist Richard. Not only is he handsome as hell, but he's also amazing with his hands (oh wait that sounded dirty...but you know what I mean) lol. I must confess, I did go a little darker than the usual blond I'm known for, but I think you can still technically call me one. He did a great job giving me something a little different and a little more rich for the fall, without going crazy on me. I'm very sensitive when it comes to hair color/cut changes and will cry in the chair if you do something off-the-wall (I have done it before) so the safer side in me opted out for a subtle change rather than something drastic (although that thought did cross my mind at one point). My life has done a 180 this past year (I won't go into detail in this post), but a complete makeover transformation would have been very reflective of how I feel on the inside. Maybe next time I'll be daring enough for all that, but for now I'll just enjoy my new, fresh look for the fall. As most of you know, I've just let my hair do its own wild thing this whole summer, so now it's time for a more sleek, chic me! ;)
