Coffee Date

Hello, friends!
I hope Friday is treating you well.
I'm so excited to have a day off to sew.
I'm doing the DIY Trunk Show in Chicago tomorrow, so I'm sewing like crazy for tomorrow!
But I'm popping in quickly to share an outfit I wore out to breakfast with Timothy.

Oh, and expect to be seeing a lot of this striped sweater..
I bought it from Brandy Melville in Santa Monica.
It's suuuuper soft & comfy....so yep. I think I'll be wearing it tons during fall!

[who doesn't love a super-fancy-inside-pocket!}

Oh, and my sweet husband surprised me with a beautiful Jo Totes camera bag for my bday!
What a guy ;)

Scarf, shoes, blazer, pants: Thrifted, Striped sweater: Brandy Melville, Camera bag: Jo Totes

Okie dokie, I'm off to get some work done.
Have a lovely day!
