I'm not one who *has* to have coffee in the mornings.  Hubs will make it and I'll drink it but if he doesn't make it, it doesn't make a difference to me either.  The funny thing is, when I worked in an office, that was a different story.  I HAD to have my coffee or else I couldn't start my day.  It's funny the habits that change when you go from working in an office to working from home.  What I do love though, are afternoon coffee dates!  Hubs and I have them at least twice a week.  We take a break from our work, walk down to the neighborhood coffee shop (we have 4 different independent coffee shops around our neighborhood which is awesome.  We like having options!) and now that it's getting nice out, we just sit outside with the dogs and enjoy our coffee and chat.  It's nice sitting outside with our dogs because people love to come up to them and pet them and talk to us.  Our doggies love the attention!  Sometimes it takes a lot to drag me away from the desk but having these afternoon breaks are the best.  It really makes the biggest difference in your work day.

Totally love this gorgeous Bird by Juicy Couture blazer.  The colors are perfect for the fall.  The Twisted Heart Stripe Blazer is a bit more casual and would be really cute layered underneath a peacoat in the winter, especially with the hoodie popping out!

Also get 3% cashback from ebates for all your Nordstrom purchases! Don't forget to use your ebates for the upcoming Anniversary Sale!

Love the striped tanks, they are so versatile and add just the right pattern to any outfit.  Don't afraid to try stripes on stripes, it works!  This little red striped tank would look good underneath the blazer or alone with shorts.  This DKNY tank is also really cute and on sale.  I love blue and gray stripes together.  (Use your Ebates to get 5% cashback at Macy's)
The majority of my jeans are either Madewell or Rag & Bone.  They both fit me the best.  These are my newest pair that I got a month ago and I love them.  They are a bit dressier as they are "trouser" style so they don't have back pockets.  I love the color of these and the slim fit.  (is it just me or do they look weird on the model?  Trust me, they look much better on!)


Fall shoes are coming out now which are my faves!  Love all the styles of pumps that I'm seeing.  These are SUPER tall which I love!

Or these are a bit more practical and just adore the bow on the toe.  I tried these on at Nordstrom and they are super cute on too.  Oh and get 2.5% cashback at Barneys.  Any kind of discount off Louboutins is good right?

Just had to show you one more.  I'm completely obsessed with the green suede New Simple pumps.  Gorgeous!! (and yes luisaviaroma.com is an authentic retailer - they are based in Europe but do ship to the US)
 I still love my bow bag!!  I've gotten a lot of questions about the size and mine is the same size as the bag I linked to which is the regular size, not the mini.  The mini is super cute but I looked at it in the store and it's just too small for me.

  2. Awww these afternoon coffee breaks sound amazing! I LOVE that striped blazer - I was going to purchase one similar but when I showed it to my husband he thought it reminded him of a prison outfit :P (don't worry, he obviously doesn't know what he's talking about!)

    I love seeing pictures of the doggies on your blog - I miss mine so much so I love squeeling over yours :)

  13. Can i please ask what college did you graduate from? I love your style by the way. i am in college right now so i cant afford the more expensive pieces you have but the outfits are still amazing and i still pull inspiration from your outfits. I cant wait till i am able to buy my first pair of Louboutins

  14. The stripes look great together - I'm all about the mixing of patters lately. You pull it of well (yet, I don't think I've seen you wear something you don't pull of flawlessly).

    I'm also LOVING the bow bag. I'm a huge Miu Miu fan and of course am a bow girl so this bag has been on my mind for quite some time. The size is great too - not too overwhelming for us shorties!

  17. Hi Tiffany! I have a question regarding heels. How much room should I have in my heels? Is an index finger gap too much? I ordered 2 sizes, a whole size and a half size up--the half sized up seem to be a bit roomy but comfortable. The whole size is tighter but no gap. Between the two, I kept and have worn the smaller pair for the entire day to a wedding and by the end of the night, my feet were hurting, could hardly walk, and got blisters! Do you think they will stretch out after a couple more wears? Or do you think I should have went with the more roomier pair (but I still felt as if it's too big). And are there any pads you recommend that can keep my feet from sliding so my toes won't be so cramp in the toe box area? Thank you!

  18. Hey Tiffany- I love how you paired your stripes together- you might give me the guts to wear more patterns one day! Also really love your miu miu bag. I was in the miu miu store in NYC and saw some really cute mini bow bags- they are so adorable! Thanks for the post!
