day two

Back to work day, of course a column of black. Onions, garlic, tomatoes, and garbanzo beans all sautéed up and topped with poached eggs gave a good start to the day. There was some cream cheese stirred in there. Dinner came calling, and I gave a good try to this month’s cover of Food & […]

day one

I have a bad habit of making things harder than they need be. Here we go with day one and I’m supposed to post twice a day and maybe to Instagram stories and I still haven’t totally figured that out yet and supposedly it’s super easy so I’m going all old school with photos from […]

twenty-one-day challenge

I’ve been here, there, and everywhere, not really sure where to really land. Is it food, or clothes, or style, or simply life? I used to be pretty fearless and fairly consistent with what we would throw up on social media, particularly the blog here, and now fearless the word is one of our zillion […]

white things and grilled cheese

It’s Monday and we heard it’s snowing again up northeast and we’re wondering what to write on the blog that might inspire, so we’re going with some year-round classic basics, white things, and grilled cheese sandwiches.

Dear Karl (Mr. Lagerfeld),

You took creative control of the House of Chanel in 1983, the year I graduated public high school, age seventeen. Honestly, I had no idea who you were, and really didn’t know the brand either. That was their plan, you were brought in to resurrect all that Coco did before, and you did.  BAM, at […]

some simple things

Even when we’re home away from home we keep our routine pretty much the same. Eggs, the best we can get our hands on, fresh flowers, farmers market vegetables, white denim and a black tank. These are some of our tried and true. Simple style notes: white denim is best with a seasonal refresh. Sure, […]

For brides, grooms, and enquiring minds, here’s who helped us pull off with what I must say was last summer’s most epic lawn fete: The Dress | Amsale Oh, The Dress. Okay, so the blog here is called every day dress, so you know even though we wander we’re kind of all about the dress. […]

He and I have been on the go go hitting up Restoration Hardware Outlet in Clearwater FL and Rooms to Go. I’m on speed dial with local delivery guy. We’re also kind of […]
