pin-spiration: outdoor living

I’ve always dreamed of having a Secret Garden-style backyard. Victorian details, Roman columns, lots of greenery, quaint benches…you get it, right? Something about having a tranquil escape just a few steps from my house (pardon, my studio apartment) seems so freaking appealing.

As I continue to live in cramped quarters here in NYC, I’ll be dreaming about outdoor spaces like these. *heart eyes*

pin-spiration: sandwiches

Call me Joey Tribbiani, but I love a good sandwich. Sandwiches are perfect any time of day–eat one with a cup of coffee for breakfast, a bag of chips for lunch, and a bowl of tomato soup for dinner. One of my all-time favorite sammies is a classic caprese–lots of garlicky pesto, melty mozzarella, and thin slices of tomato. I’m also ALWAYS down for a quality veggie burger, as long as it doesn’t have mushrooms in it. These are some of my favorite foodie finds on Pinterest…check the rest out here!

pin-spiration: soups on soups

It’s FALL! And you know what that means…we can start eating soup again!! Soup is probably my favorite food, and it literally pains me that it’s too hot in the summer to eat a cup of chowder or get down with some tomato bisque. How good do all these bowls look?

pin-spiration: pizza

Pizza is literally the perfect food. Like, if I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, it would be a perfect margherita pizza–like the one I had this past weekend at Barboncino, a trendy spot in my new neighborhood. It makes sense, since cheese and bread are two of my favorite foods…throw a little spicy tomato sauce and basil into the mix and I’m incredibly content.

pin-spiration: new england

You may know that I’m a New England native–I grew up in a super small town outside of Boston, right on the beach. Newburyport is incredibly beautiful, and is the ultimate in quintessential, colonial New England. Cobblestone streets, beaches lined with hydrangea bushes, and houses built in the 18th century.

People were surprised that I wanted to go to school so far away, and as I continue to build my life in NYC it’s bittersweet to realize that my idea of “home” is changing. When I go visit my parents in Newburyport for the weekend, do I still say that I’m “going home?” It’s kind of funny that I still consider this place to be my home even though I only spend a handful of weeks there every year. There are a lot of things I miss about Massachusetts, and these pins are some of them–though I’ll never miss the snow.

long live the mule!

This semi-pinspiration post is dedicated to my all-time favorite shoe: the mule. As someone who is just over 5 feet tall, I’m always looking for shoes that give me a little extra height without being over-the-top. I bought a pair of black mules about a year and a half ago (does that make me a trendsetter?) because I loved the manageable heel and retro vibe…plus they were on sale at H&M.

The chunky, reasonable heel height on these shoes makes them comfortable enough to wear all day, and the style is chic enough to wear for date-night. I’m currently lusting after these Marais sandals, and this Man Repeller feature seriously made me consider investing in a pair. Here are some of my other favorite mules this season:

  1. These Loeffler Randall slides. (Thanks for the inspo, Oh Joy!)
  2. These suede Jeffrey Campbell beauties.
  3. These Steve Madden mules that are straight out of Jackie Burkhart’s closet.

pin-spiration: chocolate

Man oh man oh man. Thought I’d sweeten up your Wednesday with plenty of ooey-gooey chocolate pics. If my new kitchen wasn’t two feet wide and un-air conditioned, I’d definitely be whipping some of these babies up.
