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!


Carmel & the Tale of the Bolero Hat.

after a few days of being in california, i started peace signing in my photos. i'm cheesy. but i now understand why so many "californians" are compelled to do this! we went to this quaint adorable town called Carmel, and 5 minutes into being on the beach, my hat was windswept into the ocean. all of you vintage hat collectors out there probably understand how sad this is :( but we went to a hat store, and they helped us comb the sand off! now it is as good as new!

we ate dinner one town over in this cute seafood restaurant on the pier. scenic drives and perfect weather, i could get used to this ;) but i have to say, driving home along the PCH at night had me on the edge of my seat. here's some AA riding pants styled up. i was on the cusp about this purchase, but the amazing color had me sold. they are mighty tight for my taste, but i think with an oversized top they can be cute!

  8. You definitely rock the tight pants! I've seen these styled by other bloggers but not in this color--I've gotta say I like you're color/styling best :)
    I've been to "Carmel-by-the-sea"! By Monterey, right? I love it--such a beautiful town!

  9. Oh my gosh, I'm in love with that last photo with the old VW beetle! Great colors..
    And the outfit is simply fab.

  10. I'm glad they were able to save your hat! I love this look, the colors are gorgeous and what a cute little town!

  11. gorgeous! i love your riding pants!

  12. Ditto about the AA pants -- this is my favorite styling of them I've seen. I started peace signing in my photos after living in South Korea & Japan for a year. Now, I feel rather silly doing it in Texas, but I can't stop!! The colors in all these photos are gorgeous.
