HELLO!

 photo IMG_5975_3.jpg

I'm Steffy, and I live in my favorite place on earth, Long Beach NY with my two loves & our dachshund. In this space we share our adventures around NY, cozy days at home and tons of outfits! Grab a cup of coffee and lets get to know each other!

NEVER MISS A POST

the spice of life!


so after watching the cheesy but 'with a point' movie midnight in paris, my dad and i got to chatting about the fantasy of living during a different era. it really has me thinkin' why i love the 60's so much that i emulate the era with my clothing tastes, music choices & of course the way i decorate. i decided that it isn't necessary the era in itself, but just the idea of a peachy universe or world where everything is cheery. in my mind, that place is within the time period of the 60's. it is a little place to go away to whenever things aint so hot or even when they are, i can still walk into a diner in my mind and slurp on a chocolate milkshake. do you have a little place in your mind that you go to?

anywho, my other little bubble of happiness is this blog, that is meant to inspire you and uplift you! so... i bring to you peach and pink. the best combo! and polka dots! the blouse is for sale here, the skirt is for sale here... and check out so many other goodies i just listed!

shoes: swedish hasbeens
scarf: vintage
sunnies: h & m
bag: vintage
garden critters ring: c/o francesca's collections

.. and the lovely lauren of my closet in sketches featured her own amazing drawing of this outfit on her blog today! she is just so talented it blows me away!
here's some weekly instas! some of our new painted wall! yay for friday!

  2. I love your shoes and skirt! So ladylike. Also, I changed my blog from Streets & Stripes to The Fieldbook. field-book.blogspot.com

    I'm thinking of switching it back (since most people know where to find S&S) but at least for now that's where I'll be posting style pics and such : )

  3. So retro chic! What I love most about your outfit are the bursts of midnight blue.

  4. If I wasn't desperately saving up money right now.. that skirt is just awesome. I love the way the pleats only start a quarter of the way down.

    Peach and pink are just made for each other. Puts a smile on my face right away :) Also, that flowerful ring is just adorable and such a lovely pop of strong colour amongst the pastels! Love it ♥

  23. These are some of my favorite pictures - beautiful. I loved that movie. Mike and I saw it Monday. Nice change up from the usual fare and I'm reading some stuff by Hemingway right now so it was perfect timing. On another note, love the wall you painted and particular the circles - did you paint those or are they adhesive? Where did you get the idea?

  24. Yayyy, happy things and collabs! This outfit was the perfect one to draw :) As usual, it was a blast!

  36. Hey !
    I wish I could live in the 60's too, I love the clothes and The Beatles :)
    Love your outfit and your drawing

  37. that outfit and the sketch are DIVINE!! and yes, the sixties are my fave era too. I guess for me it's the feeling of change that makes that decade so amazing: change in movies (nouvelle vague), music (rock) and art (andy warhol and co), change in social standing for minorities and women, the growing influence of the media, but all of that with a bit of the sweet, glamorous flair of the fifties... It was all happening back then :)

  38. Oh it sounds like your dad is such a cool person! No wonder you turned out to be a sweet girl, loved the sketch! Happy friday Steff!

  48. The ascot/scarf is capturing my heart! I would so keep that puppy too. ;D

    I do understand what you mean about liking an era of time or a place so much. You kind of believe it to be this special place where things aren't as bad as where you are. I think my time period is the 80's. Lol! I've been raised on synth-pop and while the fashion is a little too much for me -- the excitement of a prosperous America and new emerging technology makes me happy. :)

  49. You look adorable in that first picture of you laughing. You are so pretty!

  58. Two of my most favest colors- peach and pink. And they look so soft and romantic together. I know what you mean about the '60s! I love movies from back then because everything was so unapologetically colorful and peachy and pinky. Also, that '60s inspired decorating is adorable!! I love the records along the top of the door. xx

  59. Pleats!!! Also, the blue polka dot scarf just makes this outfit. It's brilliant.

  83. was the movie good? i keep hearing such conflicting opinions on it and i love woody allen... living in a different era would be great - i always thought that my perfect silhouette would either be late 40s or early 60s...

    your outfit is bubbly per usual!
