The Coffee Shop

The other morning Scott and I went on a lovely breakfast date to one of our favorite local places, and afterward we took full use of it's beautiful surroundings.

The leaves surrounding The Coffee Shop were beautiful, and all over the ground. While we were there it felt like the perfect fall day, something that Arizona winters are known for (winter=fall in Central AZ).

Lately the weather has bee in the 60's, and chilly in the morning and night. The need to wear a heavy coat hasn't really been there, but I've been taking every chance I get to layers anyways. I was gifted a few pretty cardigans for Christmas, and have been trying to wear style a new one every day for the past few days. I've been having a lot of fun with new patterns that have made their way into my wardrobe. I've never been much of a patterns girl, but I guess there's a time and place for everything.

Since I got home from Colorado I've found myself drawn to simple outfits, and simple outings with my guy. I haven't really felt like dressing up too much (no dresses and skirts), but I think that will all changed very soon. The holiday chaos is almost over, and I'm ready to get back into my normal groove. However, I am not ready for school to start again. Thank goodness I still have a few weeks off.

Has the holidays put you in the mood to dress up less, or have they had the opposite affect on you and you've found yourself in dresses and cut shoes every day?


  1. cute outfit! sorry took me so long to respond, but YES- my friend was on millionaire matchmaker, christos LOL. funny you recognized him!

  2. I've definitely been dressing up more! I think it's also because I moved into a big city, and I feel like everyone here looks amazing all the time. Gotta keep up, haha.

    I love your cardigan. Too cute!
