Memo 183: Go Shawty! It was my birthday…

Two days later and I’m still recovering from Birthday Weekend 2015. What did I do? Glad you asked. Nothing. Nada. Not a thing. All of thee Above.

Yeah, I really just took a moment to enjoy where I am. I went around Arizona and believe it or not discovered some new places to go and things to do. From the Peach Festival at Schnepf Farms to the celebratory brunch at the Phoenix Public Market Cafe, everything was brand new to me!
For the birthday brunch, I kept it breezy, cute and casual in this H&M striped shirt and Brand of Gypsies shorts from Nordstrom. However, my favorite piece from this look is the Indalo Sling Bag that I picked up Cape Town, South Africa. To think that I was going to leave it behind because I didn’t know how I was going to pack it. I shudder at the thought.
A couple of updates and reminders for you!

Yeah, so about my hair, I’m growing it out. Please be patient with me as I experiment. Today’s look featured the faux hawk. The sides were flat twisted to give the illusion of shaved sides.
