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

all grown-ups were children first (but few remember it).

this weekend we celebrated matt's birthday. my guy is growing up! one of our favorite books about adults and children is called "the little prince." have you read it? to me, it captures everything i want in life--to stay as adventurous, open-minded and as free as children. growing up isn't scary, but growing boring is! matt and i used to read the spanish version also, because it sounds more romantic. it's "el principito" although i only half understood it and he kept having to translate :)

for matt's day i wore short black shorts with a pretty crimson red fur collared top. i thought it was the perfect mixture of edgy and girly.

make sure to stop into my store for more pretty dresses than i ever thought possible.. added em' last night!

shorts: c/o 2020ave
tights: betsey johnson [ gift from matt's mom!]
shoes: vintage
hat: vintage
bag: rebecca minkoff [ giveaway win]

  3. Aw I LOVE the Little Prince. It's Le Petit Prince in French, I read in in French in High school and it was way prettier than in English. I'm sure it's lovely in Spanish too :) Love your mix of girly and edgy! What a lucky birthday boy who gets to spend the day with you ;)

  6. 1) I love the title of this post. Happy Birthday to Matt.

    2) Your outfit is darling. I especially love the tights and hats.

    3) Le Petit Prince is one of my favorite books too- though we read it in French (for French class) first.... My favorite parts are the fox explaining the taming of things.
