THANKS A LATTE

March 7, 2012



{vintage coral blazer via Joellenlove, borrowed chiffon top, borrowed Urban Outfitters cornflower blue lace bodysuit, thrifted Levis cutoffs, f21 ankle socks, Pieces Vida Canvas sneaks via ASOS, Ecote burnt orange backpack}


In need of some bonding time (as if we needed more), Julie and I are decided to make our time together a productive one and went on a little study date on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Almost twin-like, we're starting to dress way too alike without even trying, as exemplified by our matching brand new white sneaks, socks and thrifted Levis. We even have matching backpacks! Needless to say, she's my other halfsies, my love, and my sole sister (we love shoes!). 

Elmwood Cafe, a cute little coffee shop on the corner of College and Benvenue, the atmosphere is quaint, simple and really just delightful. If it wasn't so far (it really isn't that far), my booty thang would be planted there daily. Nevertheless, it's a nice little "getaway" cafe for those days when seeing familiar faces every three seconds just doesn't seem like an attractive plan. While we opted for their mocha instead of their latte, I couldn't pass up a golden chance to slip in a great Scrubs reference (did anyone catch that?). And really, their mocha was BOMB, so yummy and they even serve it in a cute little bowl/cup; I'm hooked.

Don't I look like a 70s gym star? To everyone's disbelief, I'm wearing sneaks! It's been a good 5 years since I last wore normal sneakers that didn't have sequins plastered on it and I am flat out addicted. The simplicity, old-schoolness and versatility, not to mention comfort, of sneaks totally snuck up on me! I may need to add a couple more pairs to my collection. A simple outfit for a simple day out, I went color crazy thanks to the crazy great weather; coral, cornflower blue, kelly green, and burnt orange. I probably broke all kinds of fashion rules but oh well! Nothing can break my spirit when I'm on a sunshine high + a caffeine high, I'm kind of known for being silly like that.
