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!


little red slippers.

brunch at the Beach Drive Inn ♥ these are the times in life i cherish. i've been in a life rut this week. the thing about life that i find silly is that the times we love and cherish the most happen the least. why can't life be more about play and less about work? not that i don't love work... but i just want to be around family more ♥ and travel more ♥ and cook more ♥ ... and spend 20 hours on an art project whenever my creative energy inspires me to. life IS a lot about finding a balance, but lately i feel like i am missing the mark. 

how come those special moments when i am surrounded by everyone i love have to be so few and far between? does anyone else sometimes get in a huff about these realities too? or am i the only cry baby in town :)

  1. Looking lovely! Great photos!

  2. absolutely adorable outfit, love the shoes!


  3. I know what you mean about missing the balance in life. I'm missing it too right now, but kind of banking on the fact that when I'm out of grad school things will even out. I hope! I hope things balance for you soon!

    This outfit is such an adorable take on a geek chic look. I love your suspenders and button-down top. Adorable red flats too!

  4. These pictures are so cute, I love the suspenders!

  5. Way too cute!

  6. Lovely pics! I know what you mean about work taking over sometimes - I find some weeks I spend more time at work with my colleagues than with my friends and family! It's a good job I really like my work mates!

  9. I have this feeling every week! Don't worry. life is difficult but its the little moments that make it grand.

    Keep smiling!

  12. I was just talking to my dad about this the other day. I'm in college at the moment and feel like it's the same old routine day in and day out. I wish I could experience more things, travel the world, and meet new people, but school always comes first. I guess we just need to do what we need to do (work, school, etc.) until we're old and retired and can travel all we want. Just hang in there, Steffy! :)

  13. love this outfit and those red shoes definitely complete it!

  16. I couldn´t agree more: yes, a day in suspenders is a day well spent! I love them and they really look awesome on you. Hope you still enjoy wearing suspenders.
