fishtails and fedoras.

slightly obsessed with perfecting the fishtail.
finally at a point where my fingers aren't in a tangled mess.

the hot weekends had me craving a chilled wine.
back in the day, i convinced my partner-in-crime girlfriend to try wine with me for the first time. we both gagged at the thought of warm wine and tried a white zinfandel, recommended by many people as a great starter wine.
it was fabulous.
conversation flowed, as did this wonderful "juice"...and a couple bottles later, we stumbled out of the restaurant
on our zinfandel high.
although my taste has, uh...matured for a liking to red wines, i enjoyed this refreshing glass of wine and the memories it brought back.

  14. I can relate to this because I don't care for red wine, maybe if I eat it with cheese, crackers and oysters with olive oil. But yes zinfandel is wonderful all nice and chilled =)

    I love the back of this top and I love you rockin' the fishtail and aviators ;)

  16. You have the best jewelry! This tank is pretty cool with the cross straps too :)

    I hate wine! I have tried so many different kinds and just can't do it. I am a rum and coke kinda girl :)

  17. I still think wine is gross. I keep trying to like it, but it's just not working out haha... I wish I could fishtail braid. I can't even braid my hair the regular way unless it's on the side of my head. Incapable of back-braids, how bad is that?

    I really like that leopard print purse. You have the most awesome leopard-print things.

  24. Lovely!! I do the fishtail braid all the time as well! It's always messy though, because I have too much hair, and I don't have the patience to take small bits at a time :)

    I'm glad you had fun experiencing wine! Pinot Grigio is my favorite type :)

    Thanks for the comment, dear. I love your blog :)

  28. The braid looks amazing. I am having such difficult time braiding my girl's hair which is super fine.
    I love the back detail of the tank. Your ring is very similar to the one I have. :)

  30. I love the giant-ass ring.
    I love the fishtail.
    I love the fedora.
    I wish I could fishtail my hair. Jesus knows that it is long enough now. I'm just too stupid to actually know how to do it. I suck at hair.

  31. Fishtail is pretty hard to do. One of my bestie used to do so much pretty braids on me when I had long hair, wish I learned how! Love the detail of the back of your tank!

  32. I love red wine. The smell, the taste, everything. I do love a chilled wine on a warm summers day though!
    Cute outfit and those shorts are amazing! Good job on the fishtail. My fingers are just to lackadaisical for that.
    Cheers,

  38. Gorgeous hair! I can't braid my hair for love or money - I have no talent for it. I wish I could! Hey look at me commenting on your blog but not with my Google account - I can only do it this way for now. Some other blogs I still can't comment at all on - so weird.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Beautiful outfit! I really like your braid!
    I like wines too! I prefer more sweet tastes though. And I used to like red wine more, but know I find white or rose wine more tasty!

    ReplyDelete
  40. ahhh the fishtail. I can't wait to get my hair long enough to have a braid like that! It looks totally pretty against the straps of that beautiful top!

    I love chilled wine. The sweeter, the better (and the quicker I get drunk!)

  41. Ha, I still don't like red wine. It's white zin or reisling for me. =)

    I love everything about this outfit! Especially the hat. I need you to give me pointers on how I should wear hats! I always feel like such a poser in them. lol
