hello august, goodbye miami.

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…

the big apple.

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…

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…

pineapples and sunny days!

With Gloria from Lookbook.nu, Ginger Harris from Electric Blogarella and Meredith Lambert from Merevin. After four years of blogging, I can finally announce that I’m a .COM! Welcome to Steffysprosandcons.com! 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…

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 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…

summer colors ♥

black, white, navy blue, red and brown have been my go-to colors, but sometimes a bright colored outfit can be fun! when i found these vintage shorts they were knee-length, and after shortening them they are an instant favorite. this weekend is my birthday weekend! I am turning the big 2-7. the idea of *late twenties* is a little crazy to me, but i am…

a picnic on miami beach at dusk.

sitting in the corner of the lifeguard tower sipping on red wine and watching the sun go down on the miami beach skyline, i had one of those moments. the moments when your eyes glaze over, the background noise fades out and you think to yourself “i am going to remember this feeling forever.” matt and i have had many sunset picnics in this particular…
