Coffee Shop Cuteness

Having free time means having time to actually hang out with friends, and hanging out with friends inevitably involves going to coffee shops. The coffee date, even to a person with a pretty extreme caffeine allergy, such as myself, is an unavoidable form of socialization. For those of us who aren't bean-friendly, there are lots of other decaf options I'm finding out, but those options certainly don't skip on the sugar. So here are two sweet outfits I've worn out to coffee shops recently! The second, including a new favorite purchase of mine...

 Lookin' frappacino worthy in:
floral top: Urban Outfitters
skirt and belt: Forever 21
heels: Macy's

Seeing friends also lets me see new movies...and while this one isn't exactly a new film, I recently saw 500 Days of Summer for the FIRST TIME! And, obviously I loved the heck out of it! It's precious, and so are all of Zooey Deschanel's outfits...still kinda want to be her when I grow up! My friend Stacy, who is going through an "i've-fallen-for-my-best-friend" stage in her life didn't think the flick was so adorable, but she does agree that the clothes were all to die for! 

Well. Summer's signature color in the film is blue, and it's been my color for a while as well as a girl with blue eyes. So, when I found out that even without an H&M in my area that I could get one of their new sold-out Garden Collection dresses off eBay, I had to! And I got one in '500 Days of Steph' blue!

While my dress isn't as light blue as some of hers, I think she would totally still wear it! Wouldn't you?
And, visits to coffee shops are not complete without seeing some cute indie-pop bands play. The reason I got all dressed up for a simple cup of decaf, was because my friend Matty was playing this time!! Here he is now:

Though we couldn't get a very good smile out of Matty, my friend Natalie captured Leslie and me smiling at one of the singers in the next band. 
Oh, yes. It looks like hipster love. But don't be fooled. It's just the coffee-shop/band effect. Happens all the time. We OBVIOUSLY got home and told our boyfriends how much we love them! But we also told Natalie she had to give him her number, for single girls in coffee shops everywhere. 

I keep having so many unexpected small adventures this summer. I hope you are, too. Having time to get out of rehearsals and relax with friends has been just what I needed! I just wish there really could be 500 more days of it all...


  1. You look so lovely, and you remind me of her actually! That film has been on my must-see list for so long, I should really watch it, and seeing these pictures of her lovely outfits has really reminded me!
