before leaving to be with our family, matt and i spent thanksgiving morning together baking pancakes, playing monopoly and walking claudie on the boardwalk. it was a nice brisk day, and it even snowed a bit in the morning! i absolutely love mornings in our house, with candles lit and holiday music playing while i cook. it has this feeling to it, one that i knew it would have from the second i laid eyes on our house.

i wore this cozy outfit to thanksgiving dinner, complete with some extra breathing room after turkey, stuffing, dessert and spiked coffee. i've been wearing glasses a lot these days because my contacts feel super dry in the colder weather... i love this pair from polette, because they are bold enough, but i don't feel overly ridiculous in them (like i sometimes do in my X-large round glasses). i hope you are all staying warm & bundled, and that you had a very happy thanksgiving.

thanksgiving has come so so soon. it feels like just yesterday that i was walking on lincoln road, outside of the J.Crew that i worked at, snapping these pictures. even the year before stands out vividly to me, when we had baby claude with us at dinner. this year is a little different, because we are far from our immediate families, but i will be soaking up the holiday with my cousins here on long island. i think i am even going to go into the city for the thanksgiving parade, something i always wanted to do!

i have to say, i am so thankful for you guys and this blog. thank you for always being so supportive and believing in me through the year. you have helped me to achieve so many things i never thought i was capable of. have a great holiday!

some feelings...





moving away can feel really gut wrenchingly lonely. i remember how this feeling once felt when i first moved to miami, before i even started my blog. i knew nobody (except matt), i had no car, and i worked in an office with only one other person. i spent a lot of time alone.

after the excitement and dust has settled here in NY, i felt my first tinge of loneliness this weekend. i have my family here, i have friends, but it's the resetting and refinding of routines that hurts the heart. i had weekly dinner dates with girlfriends in miami, i had a group of blogger friends, i knew local faces on lincoln road. i know that i will 100% feel that here, soon, someday. just not yet. i snapped these alone in my home tonight. sometimes when i feel lonely, taking pictures makes me happy.

what do you do to cure loneliness? ♥

my bedroom. ♥

here it is, our bedroom! it is the only room aside from the bathroom that is completed, and i have to admit it is my favorite bedroom i've ever had. growing up i sort of got to decorate my room, but you know how that goes (it is in your parents house, so not fully your own). from handfuls of apartments in college, to rented apartments after college, i never really handpicked my own furniture, paint color, etc.

for our room, i really wanted to play with masculinity and femininity. we picked a lavender wall color and paired it with all vintage furniture that has an industrial feeling to it. the drawers and armoire are both vintage, from upstate NY and our bed is from IKEA. My absolute favorite part of the room though, of course, is my clothing rack which was handmade by Patrick from Monroe Trades. He is so talented & his rack seriously completes our room. It makes my life much easier to have the extra closet space & to coordinate my outfits for the week!

Hope you loved the tour :)

it's about that time when all my sparkle comes out. obviously sparkle is okay year round, but isn't it more fun around the holidays?

i haven't even began to shop for gifts yet (phewwww) but i did get myself a gift - my very first monogrammed bag, EVER. and it has my new initials since i got married... and it's gold! SFD, that's me. Kate Spade Saturday has the most adorable bags (always) and the fact that they can be monogrammed makes them just that much better. the perfect gift for my babes, especially my best friend whose wedding is in 2015 :) what's your go-to gift this season? any ideas are much needed over here!

lately, colors and i have been going through somewhat of a rough patch. when i started this blog, i would wear every color (like here, here and here), but somewhere along the way i began to stick to mustard yellows, browns, navy blues and reds... those are my main four these days. BUT color is fun! so i jumped at the chance to own a fun, flirty, eye catching coat this winter! i have to tell you, it's been a blast! this coat truly makes me want to twirl, and i love the big grimace it puts on peoples faces when they see it!

what are your go-to colors? do you think some colors are off limits?

Happy to report that we have officially moved in! Our kitchen will not be 100% done for another week or so, but we're slowly unpacking and making it a home!

The weather here has been AMAZING... 60 degrees, perfect for a sweater and jeans. I am not exactly a jeans girl, but lately they've been my go-to. sometimes it feels good to be THAT girl, the one who doesn't think too hard when getting dressed, doesn't put on too much makeup, and just runs out the door. NY has done that to me. It's easier to be casual here for some reason. Getting dressed up IS fun, but being low maintenance is also fun. I'm happy I realized that this year :)

so, this weekend was like... really cold for me. I remember a few years back I realized bloggers freeze a bit for outfit photos in the cold (unless every outfit has a jacket in it), and this was taste #1. It went a little bit like this... "shoot! did you get it? i'm freeeeezing. It's good enough can't take the cold"... and run back to the car. 

How do you guys do it?? I'm thinking when the house is done, there will be tons of pictures in there!

p.s. this week we have been moving into our house... lots of stress & heavy lifting. I promise i will blog more when we are settled!

Happy flippin' Friday guys! sorry i've been a bit of a ghost, Matt was away for most of the week and it gets dark sooo early now! We snapped these before I went to work today! Lately I've been all about the cozy sweaters paired with skirts look, because I know soon it will be too cold for skirts! This vintage one is from last year, and it is one of those "forever favorites."

This weekend we are slowly moving into our house!!!!! Once I am in, I will be able to start selling some vintage again(for fun!) like old times, posting more regularly, dressing more creatively, and all the good things that come along with having an organized wardrobe! Any words of wisdom in the decorating department you can share, please do. We are on the hunt for a couch that is a reasonable price... any suggestions?
