Coffee in Stripes

Spring Dress

Yes I’m drinking coffee again. I’ve been such a flip-flopper lately with quitting “for good” and then getting hooked again. I’ve been feeling more anxiety than usual lately which means that I lay awake at night with my mind racing which means that I wake up exhausted and not even mildly ok to go to work without a kick of caffeine.

I’m taking the steps to get my anxiety under control (has anyone else tried the Headspace meditation app? I’m on day 4!) and as soon as I’m sleeping more than a few hours each night, I am going to focus on quitting coffee yet again.

I had a fun whirlwind of a weekend in the city, having lunch with a girlfriend, taking Hallie’s Soul Cycle class (if you haven’t already, take one of her classes immediately. She’s amazing!), eating dinner at The Polo Bar with my husband and spending the night at The Ludlow Hotel so I could wake up early for a video shoot for Guest of a Guest on Sunday morning.

I somehow managed to meet up with Bekka to snap a few shots of my weekend looks in between all of that. Given the hectic schedule, I grabbed a second does of caffeination in this striped dress with leather pockets on Saturday for our shoot before heading to lunch at Almond with a college gal pal.

It was a gorgeous day in the city and although the beautiful weather and all of the buzzing around made me nostalgic for my old home, I was so happy to hop on the train back to Connecticut yesterday.

    Really want this dress! Sadly, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to quit coffee. I just love starting my day with a cup.

      Quitting coffee is no joke! Don’t try unless you’re really committed is my advice 🙂

    Love this dress and it’s so fun with the double stripes in the shoes. I am a coffee addict and I can’t/won’t stop or even bother trying; I don’t care about a cup day-more than that I do try to cut back on..,.. especially on my work days when it’s 3-5 cups a day!

    Adorable dress! I have a copy-cat version from SheInside but yours looks to be a bit higher quality 😉

    I live on an island near Seattle and people always ask me if it’s boring. Truth be told, it can be quiet here, but after a day in Seattle or a weekend in LA, I am never happier to be back on the ferry heading home. Lucky us! Love your dress – super adorable on you. I fear the stripes would make me look W-I-D-E. XO

    I could never quit coffee. No one would ever want to be around me. (; Loving these stripes! Stripes are becoming such a neutral on their own. I love it!

    Such a casul/comfy outfit, love those simple dresses! I actually don’t drink any coffee, but hopefully the stress lessens and you can get back on quitting coffee for good!
