Coffee Straight Up

It’s a must every morning: Coffee. Straight Up. I’m a bit of a coffee junkie and am not fully awake until I have my first cup. Trust me, no one wants to deal with me until I get that first sip. This actually was the perfect shirt to wear on my long overdue brunch date with Kerri (Rarely Taken Seriously). As we were seated, the bar tender asked us what we wanted to drink. Seeing my tee, he wasn’t surprised that I asked for a cup o’ joe. So over our cups of coffee and eggs benedict (#twinning), we chatted away covering topics from blogging, events, wedding, the holidays; the list went on! About an hour and a half later, we parted ways, and it was back into the snowy world we went! Did I mention I am so over the snow??

Even though it was utterly gross out, I mustered up the energy to pull together an outfit. I’m sure Kerrie wouldn’t have judged, but the Patriots sweatpants and UMass sweatshirt combo needed a break. I opted for the no-fail, easy to follow outfit equation: Blazer + T + Jeans. Following this equation will ultimately result in a low effort always chic look. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
