Coffee Break

In between work and afternoon errands including a trip to the DMV (again!), I decided to spend my mid-afternoon on Abbot Kinney,  grabbing coffee at Intelligentsia.  Its a great spot for great cup of joe and hopping on the computer.  Unfortunately, my throat is being a tad funny so I opted for their organic 333 tea (which is peppermint, rose and green tea) which really is quite amazing.  I just wanted to share my pictures and drop a line.  I hope you're making it a great day!  I'd love to write more, but I gotsta scram.  I wanna breeze by all the wonderful shops for some inspiration before I return to work!  Fortunately for my wallet, I won't have time to shop, but that only means I'll have to make another trip very soon..

Summer Stripes

Summer Stripes
Just another Manic Monday at the office. I suppose was feeling rather sunny and whimsical, gravitating me towards the bright colors and summer stripes that have flocked to my closet. I wanted to keep it dainty, so I incorporated my lace skirt from BCBG. I added a beautiful pair of turquoise earrings from Garage Gypsy and exotic necklace to balance out the color. To keep it looking professional I wore my shiny red penny loafers, and tossed my fringy suede bag over my shoulder to bring me back to earth. And off I was..
