literally the most perfect dress, which i wore for a day exploring montauk. we visited the lighthouse at the east most point, and sipped some vino on the bay after a day of exploring.

i was so excited to share this outfit on Wear, which is a new "outfit posts" site similar to Chictopia and Lookbook.nu that I've been dabbling in! The site is great because the looks are actually shoppable, you don't have to go searching for an item that you love. You can also see who else styled the exact same item you are wearing. It's great to have a new platform that hones in on what us gals are looking for, which is easy one-click shopping/styling. The site is partnered with Nylon Mag, so us newbies who sign up now have a chance to be featured in the magazine! Fingers crossed ;)

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 to make my own. 

We used this recipe, but we changed it up a bit. It only cost about $10, and took about 20 minutes. Definitely amazing for us DIY gals who don't want to spend extra $$ on Starbucks all the time!

♥ 1 1/2 cups water
♥ 1 1/2 cups sugar (going to try it with a little less and see how it tastes next time!)
♥ 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon 
♥ 1/2 tsp ground cloves
♥ 1/2 tsp ground ginger
♥ 1 tsp nutmeg
♥ 3 Tbsp canned pumpkin (i definitely didn't think this was enough, and will add prob 6 next time)
♥ vanilla extract

Then we made coffee, and added it in as a syrup. We even added a little whipped cream on top as a special treat ;) The recipe makes enough extra to keep using over the next month or so!
