All I need is coffee..mascara…an oversized grey cardigan…ripped jeans and maybe a slice of pizza.
I was never a coffee drinker. I somehow made it through college without drinking one drop of coffee. I was the girl that ordered a hot chocolate when friends wanted to grab a cup of joe. Then soon the real world hit — where it somehow became the thing to do. It was like being at a college party and feeling the peer pressure — “What?! You don’t drink coffee?!”
I felt out of the loop — coffee time was a sacred moment at the office where coworkers could share fun stories and recap their weekend — if I didn’t partake I might not be part of the conversation – the horror!
Then one summer, an intern we had enlightened me. “Syma, why don’t you add some hot chocolate to your cup of coffee, then you’ll have an instant mocha!” Pure genius.
Four years later, I still drink coffee with hot chocolate mix — I apologize to my dentist but for now this is the only way it can happen.
So now what do I need in the AM besides coffee and my solid 15 minute morning routine? Mascara. This tee from Aerie couldn’t be cuter or more Insta-worthy if I do say so myself (Jay Z voice).
Sadly, it’s freezing out so I couldn’t show you the beautiful low-back but I love the soft jersey this tee is made in. I paired this tee for a casual coffee run with my American Eagle Outfitters Tomgirl jeans and oversized cardi.
In the Tomgirls I size down 2 sizes — I’ve never loved a super slouchy jean on myself so these still feel like I won’t lose my shape but give that effortless look I always love.
A simple grey cardigan, also from American Eagle Outfitters is all you’ll want to wear this winter.
I completed my #OOTD with my go-to Rachel Comey booties and I’m off to grab a cup of joe and run my usual weekend errands with a side of window-shopping.
