Lately the weather has been so back & forth that it's been a challenge to figure out what to wear in the morning, especially if I'm trying to do so before having my cup of coffee. It will be freezing in the morning and in the 70s by afternoon, or hot but rainy, or sunny but chilly. This look was my compromise--warm layers on top but bare legs and semi-waterproof shoes. A simple look with simple colors, but I liked how comfortable it was while still feeling chic & like myself. The iced caramel macchiato was my Friday afternoon reward to myself for making it through the second week of classes without having a mental breakdown (I know, a bit dramatic). Also, my roommate Angela has been taking my outfit photos for me on the path next to our house lately, which has made taking them much easier and quicker. It always helps to live with a fellow blogger!
Does anyone else use coffee as a personal reward system?
denim button-up: H&M, sweater, sidebag & skirt: Forever 21, shoes: Old Navy

I love the layers in this outfit, and that's so nice that you live with a blogger! Makes photos so much easier. :) I don't use coffee as a reward. For me it's a daily necessity. lol.
