July 4th weekend has a feeling - the air is crisp and warm, american flags are prominent, the skies are blue and the days are beautifully long and filled with the smell of BBQ, sun tan lotion and insect repellent. MMMM, all my favorite smells.

We're off on our annual Marthas Vineyard family trip for the holiday, and I cannot WAIT for this vacation - my longest one since starting my job at this time last year. What are you doing for the holiday?

p.s. swallow cafe has THE BEST bagels / ice coffs!

The Story of My New Tattoo ♥







I knew for a while that I wanted to get a tattoo for Claudie on my arm. Aside from my undying love for my doggie, I also love the design of doxies, and pretty much own everything dachshund that I can get my hands on. It was just a matter of letting the idea really sink in before going ahead with the tattoo. Matt found this great place called east river tattoo in greenpoint, and we walked-in yesterday hoping they'd have time!

Not only did they have time, but they HAD A DOXIE IN THE SHOP! It was meant to be. Rob who tattooed me owns his own, and was equally as enthusiastic about the tattoo as I was! It hurt a little bit, but I am so so happy with how it came out. I think Claude secretly knows, and she has been loving me extra!

For new readers... we adopted claude in 2012, and she made her first blog appearance here. she has become a part of our family and nothing is as much fun if she isn't by our side!

A Soho Evening on a Weeknight ♥

Yesterday Matt and I went into the city for the Uno de 50 event in Soho. It was literally a PERFECT evening, so beautiful outside and the event was on the most quaint block. I am like a kid in the candy store when I step foot into the city... living 50 minutes outside of it has helped me to avoid becoming jaded.

The event was full of bloggers I hadn't seen in a while, and it made me happy to be part of the community. I absolutely adore all of the incredible stone gem rings like the one I have on, and I was also OBSESSED with this incredible horn ring which I will have to snag soon! I've never been a huge jewelry gal (as I am sure you've noticed), but I can fall for a rad crystal stone ring that works as a statement piece! Anyway, thanks for coming along on my evening through photos, Xo!

and just like THAT it is in the 90's, and it becomes oh so clear why i left Miami! :) it is really hard to be cute in the heat! I think I've finally found my summer uniform... breathable tees paired with high waisted denim shorts. Maybe it isn't groundbreaking, but some days when you just want to throw on something but still look cute, this does the trick! I've had these shorts for years and years... and here's a few other ways I've styled them (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

My two best college friends visited this weekend, and we had too much fun meandering around the city. I woke up sick... and have just been laying around all day like a kid on summer vacation. It feels amazing, and the rest is MUCH needed!

Meet Me in the Village at UNOde50 ♥


I am not usually an event kind of gal, but this one is too fun to pass up on - and it's in the BEST part of the city! Come meet me and hangout next Wednesday night at the Unode50 event celebrating their new Fall campaign! Their campaign focuses on embracing who we are, and being okay with being guilty of being ourselves! 

All of their jewelry is made using handcrafted production methods, casting, shaping and mounting in Spain. It should be a grand ole' time, hope to see you there!

I've been living in these glasses because tbh the computer in my eyes all day is taking its toll on me! It has been raining every day since this one, and it sounds so soothing out my window. It makes me want to blast Elliott Smith and Nick Drake all day, curl up in bed, and watch Orange is The New Black.. and that is exactly what I'm off to do!

This week has been extremely exciting, because I've been attending a social media summit in the city! It feels so great drinking a coffee on the train, and seeing the skyline appear as the train pulls into Penn Station. I know i see the world through "Steffy Vision" with an emphasis on the MAGIC and the SWEETS and the pretty COLORS, but the luster of the city just hasn't worn off yet!!

In other news, I can't believe all the J.Crew drama in the news lately. I guess it's goodbye Tom Mora after many quarters of stagnant designs... I am excited to see what Som from Madewell brings to the company! They needed a change, and we know we can count on Mickey Drexler to shake things up! What do you guys think?

longer length skirts have been my go-to lately because of the incessant wind near my house. it's tough to wear hats and mini-skirts, my usuals staples!

it has been a crazy few weeks, and i've gotta say being this age is WILD. between engagements, weddings and pregnancy announcements, it feels like grasping new realities is an everyday norm. i don't know why, but to picture my friends as MOMS and WIVES is just mind boggling, even though i know i am a human being, and these things are normal. it is sort of fun guessing who is next, and i have to say i may be even more excited about other peoples news than they are themselves. lol. anything to celebrate happy times, i guess :)

I hear this usually once a day, especially with the red lip. Little girls gasp sometimes and then look sad when they realize I'm steffy. EVEN 55-year-old kitchen installers mention it. I truly do not see it, guys!! But hey, it isn't too shabby of a person to be confused as, I guess.

Anyway, I wore this to shop for flowers and get coffee! I loveeeee maxi skirts with cropped tops in the summer - it is the perfect go-to. It also forces me to do those crunches at night! hehe
