It's raining coffee

It's a rainy day today, so I had to take indoor pictures for the first time in ages!  That's ok though, we have a cute photo bomber in the below photo.  Told you Taylor can be just as cute as Pippin!  Even if her eyes are glowing wild.

Man I am tired.  The storms started around 4:00 am and I could not sleep through them.  I have ear plugs, but I often don't hear my alarm if I use them, so I chose to just deal with it.  So since my boss is out at meetings today and there's no point in making a large pot of coffee, I decided to stop by a Starbucks this morning and just grab a plain coffee of the day.  I don't typically go to Starbucks because when I go out to a coffee shop I like to get a latte and I don't really care for the espresso drinks at Starbucks, I prefer Caribou Coffee for those.  My Caribou is not on the way to work though.  Starbucks is sort of on the way and I have found I actually like the plain coffee there, so I figured, ok, I'll go simple today.  Well, it was my lucky day, after they poured my coffee they said "our computers are down so this is on us today."  Free coffee!  I will not complain about that!  Might have to stop there more often.

I still feel like this dress should be forbidden or something, it is too comfy to actually be a dress!  I swear it's like wearing pj's to work.  And yet it looks plenty dressy enough.  Best dress ever?  I think so.

That's about all I have for coherent thought today.  I'm going to drink some more of my free coffee and hopefully wake up some more.  Later today I may do my purse review, so keep an eye out for that!

  1. I love that dress! Super cute look on you! I have a couple maxi dresses that are like that - so comfy it doesn't feel like I'm dressing up! Enjoy your free coffee!

  2. Your maxi is so pretty! That's awesome that you scored the free coffee. I hate when storms wake me up, I can never sleep through them either!

  5. That does look like a super comfy dress. Also, can't beat free coffee!

  6. Lovely dress...hope those storms pass on!

  7. every once in a while the card reader on the bus breaks and i get a free bus ride. that's not as good as free coffee, though! i love a comfy and cute dress!!

  8. Cute dress!! :)


  9. Gotta love those pieces in your closet that make you feel like you are in pajamas all day. I have a maxi dress just like that! The pretty pink color is darling on you and I love the white cardigan over the top of it. And yay for free coffee! That's a beautiful thing!


  10. Free coffee is the best kind of coffee even if it is from Starbucks. (Don't like their coffee at all!) And that dress is adorable!

  11. Gotta love free coffee!! Everyone's been talking about the storms keeping them up - but I sleep through everything. I never heard a thing!

  12. I love wearing comfy clothes to work. I love the color of this dress and that fact that it's a comfortable yet work appropriate. This makes it a win..win!

  13. Super cute dress, I love the print and the addition of the long necklace and cardigan. Free coffee, it was your lucky day!! I feel like I could use one right now.

  14. Love that dress! I think the cardigan really dresses it up enough for work too.

  15. Mmm free coffee and kitty photo bombs! I really should have stopped for a coffee today. It went on and on!

    Nothing beats Secret Pajamas. I know it will be awhile before maxis disappear.

  16. Free coffee? Oh, yeah! And those cat-eyes are mesmerizing.

  17. That cat's eyes are INTENSE in that photo, haha. I used to work at Starbucks--sometimes when people looked like they needed a little boost in their day, I'd give 'em their drink on the house. (: Hopefully tomorrow's kinder to you!

  18. You look so cute!

    Free coffee?! That might be enough to get me to start visiting Starbucks :)

  19. I almost bought this dress! The colour is so bright and fun, but not overboard...and aren't maxis the bestest form of comfort ever. Gotta say that Caribou is my least fav (despite having worked there!)...I'm a Dunn Bros or Starbucks girl at heart :)

  20. Fantastic combination of little sweater top with the maxi. You look so waif-like.


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
