Coffee Shop Vibes

March 16, 2015

Poncho: Forever 21, Jeans: Forever 21, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelet: J.Crew Factory

I have a special place in my heart for coffee shops. The cozy ambiance and the homelike atmosphere is so comforting. After spending a chilly day walking around NYC, I felt it was only fitting to do some writing and planning in this french coffee shop. I recently have just finished figuring out the logistics on my Europe trip and have become obsessed with any French so I ended up in this coffee shop. 

Being that it was so cold, I was layered up but my favorite item was my poncho. I was iffy about wearing it as a petite because ponchos can be overwhelming. I was inspired by another petite blogger and scooped up this dark green poncho from Forever 21 and have been obsessed with it ever since. On this particular day I decided to wear it over top a mauve/taupe colored turtleneck and a pair of high waisted jeans. I belted it to define my shape and added some gold accessories to dress up the look.

  1. You know just a few short years ago that latte (and 90% of the bakery good here) would break you out in hives!

    Okay enough with me being a jerk. I really like that the sweater (I refuse to acknowledge it's a poncho!) looks comfy and casual but really chic and modern.

    Remember when ponchos got really popular for like 6 months back in 2004? Those make me CRINGE hence why I refuse to acknowledge that your lovely sweater is a poncho. Can we rename the poncho to some like "tailored throw" or "casual cape?" (BAD alliteration)

    I think I should go to bed now ...
