The Weekender: Getting Into the Groove

The Weekender on @savvyhome

Whoa. A lot has happened since our last post. I traveled to Italy, Turkey and Greece (hence the radio silence—more on the trip soon), and I made great new friends on the trip. I got back to New York and turned 30—and felt a little something like this about it. I got back into the swing of things and have started tackling mini projects around my apartment—which is coming along nicely. All in all, I’ve been busy, but happy. I’m really getting into the groove of things in New York, and couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else. This weekend it finally feels like fall around it, and I’m digging how the city is slowing down and feeling fresher (and cleaner!). The leaves are starting to fall and it’s really pretty. Happy weekend!

The Weekender: Foray into Fall

The Weekender — Fall Wardrobe

Yes, I’m alive. And yes, I feel awful about posting 1-2 times a week instead of the regular 4-5. The thing is: the pace in New York is different, I’m still adjusting to long work hours and endless after-hour options. The theory that New Yorkers use their tiny overpriced apartments to sleep, and sleep only is true—I can vouch for it. The other issue: no New Yorker is ever in the city on summer weekends. Between literally stinking hot temperatures—endless sweating and garbage smells—I’ve adopted the mentality that weekends are made to escape. And so I’ve spent a whooping two weekends in the city since Memorial Day. Which, I will grant you, leaves little to no time for being a normal human—one who does groceries, cleans, and writes blog posts on weekends. And I won’t lie—it’s been fun, and I’ve enjoyed taking full advantage of my few short months of summer.

But as Fall rolls around, I’m also well aware that soon, it’ll be time for all work and no play—no more weekend getaways, no more stinking hot sunny days—just the crisp cool air, a simmering chilli, and my laptop. And blog posts. Lots of blogs posts. Bear with me a little longer?

Gab Loves: City Sophistication

Now that summer has come and gone and I’m mostly back in Manhattan, I’m craving sleeker and more sophisticated looks, both in my interiors and wardrobe. I’m loving the look of simple curved furniture in beautiful warm tones, and the look of crisp fabrics and clean lines in clothes—finished with a sleek pair of white sneakers of course. Only my upcoming trip to Italy and Greece is making me eye a few of the last summer pieces: blush toned Illesteva sunglasses and a fun bandeau bikini.
