self portrait as...

...dark chocolate brown.

I grew up in the center of America's blonde universe - the Southern California beach - and never, ever, not even once wasn't singularly proud of having dark chocolate brown hair. It is one of my favorite things about me (thanks Dad).

I am thrilled with the return of the enormous sunglasses - ahhhh, chocolate tortoise shades. I will never go back to small frames - ever.

And the frosty scoop of dark chocolate ice cream from Rainbow - San Francisco ice cream purveyor extraordinaire? Simply perfect.

More self portraits here.

The PickleBoy and I are off to Austin tomorrow to play, play, play for a week with some of our most favorite friends. Probably won't be posting for awhile but shall return with big smiles and photos galore. Look out photobooths, here we come!

You are the 2nd person to mention Austin, I'd love to visit there someday!
I too grew up in the land of blond (manhattan beach)but never felt like I wanted to be anyone other than me with my dark brown hair. The most surprising thing was finding out how pale my skin actually is, once I moved away. Safe travels. (=

Oh and I forgot to mention the tortise sunnies....I'm loving a pair that I got at Urban Outfitters, on sale even. They really work on so many levels, even beyond just looking dang cool.

I sometimes really wish I had hair your colour, although I'm not sure I would suit it. And I'm loving my enormous sunglasses this summer, they're ace!
