rainy summer days// vintage floral shorts

sometimes it’s hard to admit to yourself that a style just isn’t right for you– which was the case for me with short-shorts. i have a small waist and hips, and i am not complaining about it, but i look really odd in mini cut-offs. when i was younger i felt silly being the only girl at the party not in denim short shorts or…

crochet collars & coffee shops in madrid ♥

With every inch of my being i believe in fate.  has anyone watched the film “the secret”? i had a teacher play it in fashion school, and while it is filmed cheesy(queue elevator background music), i connected so strongly with its message. bad things happen, yes. some weeks are hard, some days are hard– some MINUTES are hard. but the goals that i’ve set my…

stripes & vintage florals in Madrid.

Do you ever love a song so much that you replay it halfway through? Do you ever love a day so much that you could die happy if it ended by noon? I wrote that down in the “notes” section of my phone the other day, after replaying the Ben Gibbard Former Lives cd about 8,000 times, and never feeling quite sick of it.  this…

Madrid, Spain: the first day ♥

we traveled to madrid with matt’s family to meet his 91-year-old grandpa. it was a family reunion of matt’s dad’s side of the family, and his siblings and cousins flew from all over the world (buenos aires, serbia, new mexico, etc.) to be there! it was wonderful being able to meet new relatives, and to learn about the history of my (now) family name! it…

fresh perspective.

after an 8 hour flight to London and a 3 hour flight from London to Madrid, we arrived! Yesterday we made sure to stay up all day to combat the time change, and falling asleep was the BEST thing in the world. i forgot how it felt to walk the narrow streets of spain, but the second we walked around the feeling came back! some…

seeing this great big world.

  walking around the streets of long beach, long island, on one of the most beautiful days of the year. it was a lovely mixture of sunny and windy– the kind of day that makes you want to park your towel on the sand and fall asleep. after traveling so much this month, i’ve realized that success to me means being able to see new…

zip-a-dee-doo-dah! I’m feeling ZESTY lately, with a little bit of confidence and a lot of sass. it could possibly have something to do with the outrageous amount of trips on my list this month. here’s a list of reasons i am excited. leave me your list in the comments, so we can all be happy together! ☞ i will be in NY this weekend! ☞…

summer dreams, summer floral seams

summer is bursting at the seams here in miami. the sun makes it unbearable to spend more time outdoors than a walk from your air conditioned car to the door of where you need to be. water intake doubles (and if not, cotton mouth sets in). and then of course, my entire wardrobe turns into florals, florals and vintage!  my sickness finally relented after two…

mint princess ♕

despite still feeling off, i have been going about my life, because the world doesn’t just stop when you’re ill! it’s a terrible truth to realize, but i have responsibilities that don’t just disappear. i am getting my blood tested and hope it’s nothing too weird, or that it’s just the flu. fingers crossed. i don’t wear too many midi skirts because i have hips…

coffee in the kitchen.

my favorite moments are usually spent in my home, in silence, playing with claude when she is in a calm and cute mood (not hyperactive, like she is after she’s home alone for a few hours) we snuggle, i teach her some tricks or practice old ones and i hold her like a little weenie dog baby! she is such a sucker for love. i…

summer days, drifting away.

today i woke up sick. everyone in my office has been slowly getting sick, and i kept thinking NOT ME! But, alas, here I am with a fever. it’s nothing too serious, i just feel only 60% there mentally. and i am not craving coffee, which to me is a number one sign of sickness. the nice part about my job is that i can…
