homemade pumpkin spice. (Happy National Coffee Day ♥!)

my friend Kelsea and i decided to test out a homemade pumpkin spice recipe. i read this article, and was pretty sad that the latte has literally NO REAL PUMPKIN in it. i always knew my seasonal PSL’s were a treat, and knew they couldn’t be lengthening my life, but i never knew there was 0 pumpkin in them! it was the motivation i needed…

mustard + navy on the long beach boardwalk ♥

On Friday afternoon Matt and I caught the last glimpse of the sun from the boardwalk, before packing and getting ready for our roadtrip to Montauk. NY has redefined the meaning of “roadtrip” for us. We used to spend 5 hours driving places upcoast in Florida, spend about 29 hours in said destination before turning the car around and heading home. In NY, the entire…

abbey road faker.

NY vintage blogger meets Abbey road London 1969 is the look I was going for. I am not sure if i ever mentioned it, but The Beatles are my favorite band ever. when i hear them play, my heart beats two times the speed. i HAVE to sing along. i walked down the aisle on my wedding day to “i will,” and i’ve laughed and…

NY fall day 1: cat beanie.

all typical fall “blogger things” aside (PSL’S, the leaves changing colors, crisp air, pumpkin scented candles), the fall SEASON has officially arrived. i will be enjoying all things listed above, but what i love most are the long beach sunrises and sunsets. You see, the road we live off of runs east to west, so the sun rises and sets directly at the end of…

Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.

the other day i heard joni mitchell’s “big yellow taxi,” and i actually listened to the lyrics. it was on my morning drive to work, when the sun has that incredible yellow tinted sun flare, and the world just seems to stand still. and i heard… They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum then they charged the people a dollar…

winky face. ;)

some of my friends have a thing against the winky face. they feel like it is creepy/ too forward/ an unnecessary emoji to ever use in the realm of normal everyday texting. well you know what? i am embracing the winky face. i think he’s cute, especially on a polka dotted sweater! what do you think? sweater: Boutique Onze shorts: vintage bag: vintage – grey…

the wedding peeks i’ve taken 7 months to post. ♥

i posted a little bit about my wedding, but not much. i think i needed time to let it all sink in before diving into sharing it with the world. it was a big and exciting step for us. now that it feels natural to call matt my husband and all, i think it’s only fair that i share a little bit more. not too…

THAT vintage dress.

days are passing, hairs are growing, seasons are changing. without thinking too much about it i have been saying farewell to month after month. 2014, where have you gone?  i found this dress at a thrift store this weekend. i’ve seen many like it, but something about the shape of this one drew me to it. i was on the fence on whether it was…

Morgan Avenue, Bushwick, Brooklyn.

This weekend i learned a lot of life lessons. some of them big, some of them small, some of them silly. 1. be wary of air b and b. we used it this weekend and ended up in an awful railroad apartment with tons of random people(we ended up staying at a friends). we are trying to battle it out for a refund, but are…

it’s about that time…

… that i bring out all of my plaid. the way i look at it is – there’s 4 months in the year to get away with it. i am ready to embrace it! i’ve been testing out new lengths, and am loving the look of dresses/ skirts that cut right before the ankle. i think it will be my staple this season, as opposed…

Apple Picking In Stone Ridge NY

I wish I could tell you how lovely the fall weather is, and how perfectly crisp the air is all day, but the truth is it’s only “fall-esque” until about 10am. We woke up early to pick apples (which i had never done before!!) and it was gorgeous out… until we walked one too many hills and the knee highs made me a little overheated.…

Lovers in Levis.

Matt and I collaborated with Levi’s and Lookbook to be one of the first people to post on Lookbook.nu with their husband/ BF/ best friend! It was really amazing (for me) because it was an excuse to get my guy to be in blog photos with me. he hasn’t been on here in a while, has he? Matt and I are huge fans of Levi’s,…
