I'm not exactly one who readily embraces change. I like routines, things in an orderly fashion, and find comfort in consistency. But this past week, I decided to cut my hair ... by more than a foot. Prior to that, I had the same haircut for years. Needless to say, I was ready for something different. I'll admit that when my hairdresser cut off my pony tail, I nearly fell out of my chair, but I've since come around to it. And it's reminded me how crucial it is to embrace change every now and again. Brian snapped this photo on Friday before we went out for a long walk, lobster rolls and rosé. Between the fresh cut and the cool breeze on a street filled with bikers, friends laughing and couples holding hands at 11 when we strolled home, I realized summer in the city is finally here. And it really can't be topped.

Oh, and my necklace was sent to me from Soko (I've been pairing it with this bracelet). With Soko, a San-Francisco based e-commerce startup, African designers without a computer, bank account, full Internet access, or even reliable electricity, can sell their wares across the world, using only simple feature phones. Find out how it works here. It's such an awesome concept. Products can be found on Soko's site, Nordstrom and Anthropologie.

P.S.  Soko is offering readers 20% off with code MAKETHEMOST. Offer ends 12/31/2016. Happy shopping!
