day of thanks.


seems like this is turning into a "me and my puppy and oh yeah i like clothes" blog, sorry! i will try to refrain from featuring claude in every post, she is just too darn cute! i wore this on thanksgiving because we all know it's necessary to wear comfy and roomy clothes to go stuff our faces with turkey! i love this cute snowflake sweater, and already miss our mini cold front from last week.

tonight i am having an ugly sweater housewarming party! i baked cute holiday cookies, set up a photobooth and got the perfect "ugly" sweater, and i couldn't be more excited! i hope you all have a festive weekend!

cozy for camping ❤


one of the best things to do during florida fall/winter (as i've probably mentioned way too many times) is roadtripping upcoast. the weather is chillier, the air is crisp and it is always an adventure! claude came with us on her first upcoast trip :) ! we definitely did not prepare for the 45 degree night we had, so we were all a bit freezing, but we grabbed everything warm we had in the car to try to bundle ourselves up. it was kind of fun!

i lived in this cozy reindeer sweater which i could finally wear! it is the most perfect holiday sweater ever, and i cannot even believe i found it. the pants are my new go-to for work-- the j.crew "pixie pant." they appear to be leggings but they are somewhere in between pants and leggings, perfect to dress up or dress down. i love love love them! k, i am off to a full day of work today! have a lovely wednesday!

girls and pearls.

nothing catches my eye more around this time of year than velvet. naturally i adore this velvetty skirt jeweled with polka dot pearls! it has been chilly enough in the mornings and afternoons for knee-highs, and i have been indulging. i am on the search for some new ones because these always slide down my leg as i walk. i would love some fair isle knee highs too, we'll see what i can find :)

i just got back from a weekend of camping and roadtripping with matt, and have tons of pictures to share throughout the week! i hope you all have a lovely monday!

baby it's cold outside.

it has been in the 60's early morning, which is not to be taken lightly in my book! i am in full-on sweater mode, and i have way too many sweaters in rotation! i finally caved and got this sweater from j.crew to wear on thanksgiving day. i mean c'mon, how could i resist :) i can't believe thanksgiving is tomorrow. it is one of my all-time favorite holidays! i hope you all eat way too much pumpkin pie, hug your loved ones extra and of course enjoy your itis!!! :)

p.s. i am FINALLY adding 50 new items to my store for the holidays!

polka dots and puppies.

meet claude pepper! we know claude is a mens name, but we decided on the name before someone informed us, so we're keeping it. she is 2 lbs and 9 weeks old, and possibly the cutest weenie dog in the entire world. it's been a whirlwind of a weekend, sort of feels like we just had a baby because she wimpers and keeps us up at night haha. she is such a bundle of joy though. it's so fun to be able to walk around south beach with her (minus the mobs of random people's hands who touch her as we walk by). it feels fake having this cute, clumsy, sweet little creature run around the house! i will make sure to show you pictures of her, i am sort of in overbearing mom phase right now.

i wore this yesterday for a walk on lincoln road, ending in a movie date! i feel like i abandoned polka dots, but i do still love them! have a happy monday!

the GAP + me!

our move-in is a success! even my favorite ceramic ice cream cone made it unscathed. now is the fun part, decorating! the house is very spacious, but doesn't have such great lighting so i need to get lots of lamps. we're also going to get fun antique furniture! 

here is a fun vintage inspired look I shot in a collaboration with X GAP for it is so surreal to think that THE GAP wants ME to style their clothes. phew. one happy girl over here!

p.s. i also made a cute little gift guide in collaboration with GAP. you can see more details on the site

baa baa black sheep.

it's monday, and this is my cozy weekend outfit that i wore ALL weekend. i've been living in this sweater, and all i want to wear for this holiday season are festive ties! this particular tie has little sheep all over it, and one of the sheep is black. it's too cute to be real.

we are moving in 2 days and the house is all packed up! today is our holiday rollout at work, so don't be surprised if adorable sweaters start popping up on here :) i am trying to get my holiday store listing up by the weekend, sorry for the delay! i just need to get settled and get my life sorted out first! i hope you all have a lovely monday!

p.s. yes, we are weird and took these in a cemetery. but it is the PRETTIEST cemetery by our house, and it is so peaceful. minus the crazy guy who was flicking off gravestones LOL

50% off the store (last day!)

today is the last day to take 50% off of everything in my store with the code "happymoving." i am trying to clear out lots of vintage because i'm moving in 3 days and i have tons of cute holiday items to add for you all! the store is about to go through a few changes- not good or bad, just changes. as most of you know i now have a full-time job, and don't have as much time :( i am going to keep updating the store, just a bit less frequently and a bit more sporadically. i couldn't ever stop running it, because it is my passion ❤

a cabin in the woods.

when the weather get's chilly, the best place to visit is my friends cabin upcoast. it's a bit dilapidated and  beautifully rustic. the air is crisp, the grass is high and it is in the middle of nowhere. i have dreamt about these fall/winter days all year and they are finally back!

i am having one of those weeks where i miss too many people. do you ever have those? i think a NYC trip is overdue (even though i was sort of just there). and i also think miami is far too spread out. maybe i will just have to invent a magical machine to transport me to everyone through thin air. or i need a jeannie! or i just need sleep. sometimes when im too tired to function i get bummed. CANT WAIT TO SLEEP IN TOMORROW! have a good weekend!
