Here goes! FOOD/DRINK: 1. Zak the Baker (Wynwood): I may be biased, because Zak is a great friend of ours, but judging by how many others in Miami love this…

My favorite high waisted jeans// Miami Beach

I have such a tough time finding the perfect pair of high waisted denim (don’t we all?!) I have a small waist, with hips so they usually either make me look wide, or fit awkwardly. When I found this pair, I felt like they were heaven sent! Let’s just say I am having to hold myself back from buying every single style that Urban Outfitters…

Ocean Drive, Miami

It feels so good to throw on my old favorites, these overalls! They were my go-to staple when I lived in Florida, and years later they’re still so easy to throw on. Having a baby totally strips my time to myself in the morning, so I’ve learned to minimize my wardrobe and make it easy to grab my favorite staples. In my opinion, everyone should…

brunch at the Beach Drive Inn ♥ these are the times in life i cherish. i’ve been in a life rut this week. the thing about life that i find silly is that the times we love and cherish the most happen the least. why can’t life be more about play and less about work? not that i don’t love work… but i just want…

free days, cabin days.

oh sweet freedom. i really have a love hate relationship with the summer months. on one hand, i have less hours at work which grants me more time to be the most free me i can be. on the other hand, i have less hours at work. never a great thing, right? BUT … i am a “do-er” so the first thing i did was…

cozy for camping ❤

one of the best things to do during florida fall/winter (as i’ve probably mentioned way too many times) is roadtripping upcoast. the weather is chillier, the air is crisp and it is always an adventure! claude came with us on her first upcoast trip 🙂 ! we definitely did not prepare for the 45 degree night we had, so we were all a bit freezing,…

a cabin in the woods.

when the weather get’s chilly, the best place to visit is my friends cabin upcoast. it’s a bit dilapidated and  beautifully rustic. the air is crisp, the grass is high and it is in the middle of nowhere. i have dreamt about these fall/winter days all year and they are finally back! i am having one of those weeks where i miss too many people.…

a house in the woods.

as far as dreams go, one of my biggest dreams is to live in a house in the woods with a backyard. i know some people think the tropics are beautiful, but my idea of beauty is a deserted road in the middle of the wilderness. i think snow and the fall and trees without leaves are SO pretty. i’m jealous of all you cuties…

haunted by ghosts and goblins: st. augustine, florida.

a day spent in st. augustine, florida with my best friend lacey. it is the oldest city in the united states filled with small cobblestone roads, lots of coffee shops and “goodies” & filled with interesting looking people– tourists and residents both! i chose to wear this AMAZING lavender polka dotted top with a bow around the neck. i was a bit disappointed that north…
