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!


my special socks ♥

sometimes certain pieces hold a special little place in your heart and you feel instantly attached (and materialistic :) ) ... and that's exactly how i feel with these socks! matt's sister is living in patagonia on the other side of the world, and she sent these cute hand knit alpaca socks back with matt's parents just for me! i think they're the best gift i've gotten in a while because they feel so special. i keep wearing them, even though i want them to stay sparkling clean. when i was up north i really loved the socks under lace-up boots look that i saw all over, so i thought i'd bring it to the florida heat. it makes it possible to get away with wearing cute socks and boots, because i balanced it out with a revealing top to keep me cool in the sunshine! and boy was it sunny yesterday! it feels good to be back in the warmth, i can't complain..
