I'm Steffy, and I live in my favorite place on earth, Long Beach NY with my two loves & our dachshund. In this space we share our adventures around NY, cozy days at home and tons of outfits! Grab a cup of coffee and lets get to know each other!

today we kissed one last time in an empty echoing apartment and we bid adieu to our south beach home.

then we said "seeya later" to claude, who we will be picking up in two months.

overall, a day filled with lots of stress, sweat, driving, packing, bubble wrapping and goodbyes, and tomorrow morning we are on the road! goodbye guys, see you next time from NY!

2 more sleeps in our apartment, 9 more meals, 6 more hard boiled egg breakfasts, possibly 1 more run, and 2 more dinners left in this city we've called home for four years. we're powering through packing, while trying to get in our last goodbyes. 

pastels and mustard yellow have been my main go-to colors, but that's typical. the team at TRESemme did my hair for swim week, and i've been replicating it to beat the heat! pinning short hair up like this with a beehive is such a stylish way to wear short hair that i never thought of. any other short hair-do's you wear, send me links in the comments! i'm trying to get creative!

sunflower overalls; the kid in me!

Just being a kid again, wearing overalls again, and of course carrying a Kipling bag. Today is my last day of work before we move (in JUST 5 DAYS!).

I almost feel like my life is hitting the refresh button. do you remember that feeling after the summer months in school when you could show up on the 1st day being whoever you wanted to be? there was a certain mystery about "what people did all summer" or who they became with 3 months off. I was excited to attend the #Back2Kipling event and pick out this cute handbag from the adorable new collection, just perfect for my new adventures! It's lightweight, which works great for carrying my camera! I also got to meet the cutie on the catalog, Megan Nicole, who performed.

I am so ready to re-invent my life; to show up on day 1 being the me I want to be! Xo

After four years of blogging, I can finally announce that I'm a .COM! Welcome to! The timing felt right, and it was one of the easiest processes to accomplish. 

Lately I have been really into pineapple prints! Maybe it's because Florida is so very sunny, or maybe because they are my favorite color-- yellow. I was ecstatic when I found this bag to wear during swim week, and I was even more excited when the swimsuits at the Tory Burch preview matched me! I know which swimsuit I'm looking out for next year ;) I also attended the ASOS party, and just about lost it over everything --- but that is normal with me + ASOS. I met one of their buyers at the event, and proceeded to tell her how she has the best taste in the universe. 

My time in Miami is coming to an end... only 7 days left here, and I know I will cherish these sunny pictures when I miss this place.

miami swim week is over (for me) and also, my voice is gone. that usually happens though! i'm fully run down from all of the sun and non-stop go go go, but today i am working from home and trying to get ready for the move simultaneously.

these are from my 1st day at swim week on friday night. i escorted my cute husband as my date, and we made some magical memories with my favorite miami people. the sunset from the top of the Raleigh was unreal, and there was even a rainbow after it poured! the Wildfox show-- which is always my favorite show-- was nothing short of amazing. it was fun, light hearted and filled with pastels, florals and flirty sayings! my favorite looks are above. i will be back with tons more photos. xo

a farewell to our miami home.

we moved into our south beach apartment in october of 2012. i had just been promoted to full-time visual merchandiser at j.crew, matt was not even freelancing yet and we found it from a lucky craigslist search. we knew it was "the one" right when we walked into the courtyard. i always take a long hard look at empty apartments before i move all of my things in, and try to picture everything the future has in store within the walls of not-quite-home-yet. this one brought us so many beautiful memories. 

we raised little claudie in this home, i can remember her as a 2lb puppy walking around. matt proposed to me in the apartment, right near where my chair collection sits. we've had way too many fun potluck dinners and parties (and have probably pissed off one-too-many neighbors.) i've pranced around with good news, cried many a nights curled in a ball in my closet, popped champagne, cooked homemade meals, repurposed handfuls of vintage dresses, completed wedding DIY's. it will be bittersweet to say goodbye. here's some lovely moments captured.

boiled eggs have become my new favorite food. easy, healthy and so filling!

also, i am getting excited for swim week. miami has been sweltering, but even in the midst of the heat i am still pale. hopefully this weekend i will work on my summertime tan. and i will make sure that i'm leaving miami with a BANG. only 1 more weekend after this! xo

my 27th birthday.

as i get older my birthdays tend to make me more and more nostalgic. hopefully i'll eventually get over it, but yesterday i embraced it all and visited my favorite place to be during highschool-- sitting underneath the pavilion at my favorite beach in my hometown. it rained in the morning during our brunch, and then like clockwork the sun came out just in time for me to swim in the lukewarm salty beautiful ocean and soak in some sunshine.

it's crazy to think i am in my "late twenties" but age is really just a state of mind, and i actually don't feel a day older than i did sitting on the same beach 11 years ago. for fun, here's an old photo of me back in the day. :) yes, i used to knit at the beach.
