Fashion Over Reason: Coffee Break

Coffee Break

Fashion Over Reason Frame Denim, JCrew loafers, Altuzarra x Target blouse, Coach bag, Ray-Ban aviators

My British readers will want to throw rocks at me (sorry!!) for saying this, but I don't care much for tea. There, I said it. Not that I dislike it per se, but it just doesn't do it for me. Mornings must greet me with a bucket of extra strong drip coffee (no flimsy espresso for this gal) and if I need an afternoon pick-me-up, I will choose the latter. When I'm sick, I enjoy a nice herbal tea, but other than that, I just don't derive much pleasure from imbibing an earl gray or orange pekoe.

That said, the ritual of a coffee (or tea) break is one of those necessary components to the day. It allows your mind to recharge, you can think of something other than work for 15 minutes and, above all, the fact that you're taking time for yourself, if only a teensy bit, is of utmost importance. So whether you like the dark stuff or the leafy liquid, or even just a good ol' fashioned juice, make sure you squeeze in a short amount of selfish time on the daily.

PS this is one of the blouses from the Altuzarra X Target collection. I kinda love it. Did you guys get anything from that collaboration?

A lot of Brits prefer coffee, too... :) Personally, I switch between coffee, green tea, black tea (Russian habit) and white tea (British habit) :) I think Brits would be more upset about the gorgeous weather on these photos - it's so so so cold here right now! x
