Sundresses and backpacks

On Saturday when I met up with Thomas, he took my picture for Klover. His blog is one of my favorite places to find beautiful pictures of fashionable subjects so it was very exciting to see my face there. The car photo is my favorite because purely by chance there was an old Buick that matched my dress perfectly. It looks like a scene from a movie about California. I would be the young naive girl who wants nothing more than to learn to surf like the boys. Living out my Gidget dreams in Brooklyn.
Oh, and if you were wondering; yes I dyed my hair. Its fun and serious at once when its dark like this and according to Thomas it gives me a bit of a Cleopatra vibe.

  14. This probably my favourite dress of yours I've seen so far. So pretty with sleeves (why don't more dresses have sleeves)? And I like the Cleopatra vibe I had my hair that colour once... and that length.

    P.S. Your hairdresser did an awesome job of not making you a triangle head. : D
