DC Chillin’ in my chunky sweater & leather mini skirt

If there’s one thing you should know about me is that I love sitting at coffee shops just as much as I love sipping on some good coffee. Period.  I can spend endless hours in a coffee shop. Doing what you may ask? Well– planning out my life, chatting it up with a friend, studying, working on my blog, you name it. Whether I am alone or with a friend, I find it to be a place of relaxation. I love to end my days with a good ol coffee date!

A couple weekends ago, my cousin, brother and I decided to venture out in DC. Of course, I love getting dolled up just to eat. My weekdays are super long, so on the weekends best believe I’ll dress up just for some tapas and coffee. My brother took us to one of his favorite restaurants in the city called Barcelona Wine Bar. I fell in love. I love to eat, y’all and when I find good croquetas, I will not leave. 😛 I told our waiter to keep the croquetas coming and he did just that.

You know how there are those people that leave room for dessert? I leave room for coffee. 😀 Right after we left the restaurant, I searched for the nearest coffee shop and came across SlipStream a few blocks down. We walked over and spent a good hour there just chatting it up. The weather was nice so we sat outside and enjoyed out cafecitos.

If you are ever in the Washington, D.C. area or live in DC be sure to check out a coffee shop, we have tons! I have a long list of coffee shops I have yet to visit.

Onto the outfit– I love pairing chunky sweaters with anything fitted, here I wore it with a mini leather skirt. I wanted to be comfortable but still look cute! Because I knew I wasn’t going to be walking a lot, I wore these booties. See how I styled them here with jeans. They are so comfortable and look great with skirts or ankle jeans.


Thanks for reading!

    I love this outfit! Yellow is one of my favorite colors, and a leather skirt is always such a fun item to have. I have had an obsession with blank ankle boots this fall, and I have had to tell myself to not purchase anymore! You look amazing in those photos too!
