High Waisted Skirts During Pregnancy

I was pretty devastated at the thought of going through a summer being unable to wear my high waisted favorites. That is, until I realized you can still wear a high waist during pregnancy! Of course I had to give up my high waisted jeans and vintage levi’s cut-offs, but high waisted skirts with elastic waistlines are amazing to wear during pregnancy! Here’s a few…

Marthas Vineyard

It’s a family tradition of ours to spend some time in Martha’s Vineyard each summer (You can see past posts here, here and here!) I will actually be back all of next week with my parents for the week of my birthday, but here’s some photos from July 4th weekend! Some of our favorite things to do include getting breakfast at The Black Dog, seeing…

On Happiness

There’s two things that never fail to make me smile – going on a bike ride, and eating things with a spoon (like cereal, and yogurt.. and ice cream, of course!) I’ve been thinking a lot about how to try to translate that calm feeling of biking, wind in my hair and grin on my face, into the rest of my existence. I know that…

Bumpin’ at the Beach.

The most difficult part of pregnancy, for me (aside from the discomforts, of course) is putting on this new hat that I am not 100% comfortable with yet. Do I show the world my bump?? Do I let them know?!  To be honest, I felt the same way when we first got married. Saying “my husband” and being A WIFE was pretty frightening. But with…

Everyday

We snapped these in Brooklyn the other evening, before we ate noodles at King Noodle and went to see my friends band, Such Hounds, play at a local venue! We’ve been taking full advantage of these date nights, because I know they will be really hard to enjoy once the baby is around (and lets be honest, I’m sure we won’t want to leave him…

Navy and Red in Brooklyn

NY is finally HOT, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I am so thankful that I get to be pregnant during the summertime when I can wear light and flowy dresses like this one! We’ve been spending most of our days on the beach or in Brooklyn! Here’s some photos from Clinton Hill, our new favorite place in Brooklyn to hangout. One of…

Hatch ♥️♥️ in Spain

While visiting Spain, Matt and I took a day-trip to Girona (which we highly recommend for anyone who has a few days in Barcelona – we took the AVE high speed train, and the ride was only 30 minutes!) Some of Game of Thrones was filmed here, which made it extra exciting for us, plus you can truly get lost on the narrow cobblestone streets…

Stripes + Introspection

Pregnancy does interesting things to the way we view ourselves. Some days I look at my 1000 times more curvy body and I cringe at myself, and others I am proud of it and I want to wear a dress like this to show the world. I (of course) knew that my body would grow, and part of that is SO exciting. Every morning matt…

Bell Bottom Overalls

Madewell Overalls | UO tote | Rayban sunnies The craziest thing about time, for me, is that as it passes by we so quickly become readjusted and forget where we once were standing. It’s currently 22 degrees, feels like 10 outside my house, but in Miami it was still 85 degrees! I totally cannot remember that feeling of not having seasons, and not having to…

Tulum, Mexico ☀

I spent four days in Tulum for my best friends bachelorette party, soaking in the sunshine and exploring all of the beautiful beaches. I was surprised how different Tulum was from what I expected – definitely more touristy, but…

Miami – Still 85 Degrees, Guys

Miami, Florida – a lovely place to come home to. But honestly, how did I ever live in the heat all the time? no idea, guys! It was a beautiful thanksgiving filled with old friends, family and nostalgia. I did not bring my computer, which felt extremely freeing. Here’s a few snapshots, more to come! !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id…

Montauk Lighthouse

Some would say Matt and I are crazy, because we are constantly on the go, doing and seeing new things, but we don’t mind a drive in order to explore! They say it’s more about the journey than the destination, and that’s my favorite part about roadtrips! The lighthouse was the icing on the cake, but the trip to Montauk, stopping at farmstands along the…

A Lazy Saturday (& Bananas)

When all else fails… we go to the Laurel Diner. I can’t even list how many dinners I’ve had for breakfast, and breakfasts I’ve had for dinner at this place. Now that pumpkin is ALL THE RAGE, I had to try their pumpkin muffin and break my sweets ban temporarily. I almost want to keep logs of Matt and I’s conversations here year-to-year, I am…

Brick & Denim

The 70’s are back, and you don’t see me complaining. I can remember my mom wearing skirts like this when I was little, because she literally never throws away her clothing and she continued to wear it through the decades. Now I own one – funny how that works. Have a lovely weekend, TGIF working gals! Make sure to follow my weekend adventures in instagram…

For every gal who ever wished they didn’t chop their locks…

If you have followed me through the years, you may remember my long wavy hair, and you also may remember when i chopped it. i get bored easily with my look, and i am constantly changing it. Since starting my blog I’ve even gone red twice (here and here). But behind all of these changes I feel the most like myself with long dirty blonde…
