Would you say you’re a “routine person?” I never thought I was. But, when it comes to my weekends, they usually involve the same thing, every time: a ridiculously obscene amount of coffee. There’s something pretty special about the ritual of having that first cup. I love to roll out of bed on a Saturday or Sunday morning (after sleeping in until at least 10 a.m.) and walk to Stauf’s, a coffee shop a couple blocks from my apartment. It’s the perfect place to post up, sip on a latte, and nom on something sweet.
The patio out back is my all-time favorite. It’s tucked away under trees and umbrellas, making it ideal to retreat to, especially if you’re looking a little rough from the night before (check). Because let’s be real, we’ve all been there.
Seriously, how good does that strawberry scone look? Don’t you just want to snatch it off the plate? Also, the barista I talked to told me she makes a mean Cortado. I didn’t know what that was at the time (disclaimer, still don’t), but according to Wikipedia, it’s espresso “cut” with a small amount of warm milk to reduce the acidity. Who knew? After downing it in under five minutes, I’d have to agree with her. It was good.
Now, let’s talk a bit about this outfit. I’m not allowed to wear jeans during the week, so on weekends, I take full advantage and wear them all day, errrr day. Flares are my jam lately. As much as I love my skinnies, flared jeans really are flattering on everyone, and help to accentuate your curves. I snagged a pair the other day from Old Navy (PSA: they are on sale for $20!) and I’ve literally worn them every night since.
