Coffee Time

Larkspur Vintage | Coffee Time…Comfort time

Working at Starbucks when I first moved to Toronto 8 years ago is likely the reason coffee became a regular part of my morning routine (or afternoon, if I have a bit of a lie-in), and it’s now rare I go a day without having a cup. I often frequent local cafes – The Abbott, Capital or Boxcar Social – to grab a cup or make some at home (if I’m being honest, Zach usually makes it for me…). Sure, caffeine addiction may be a real thing, but it’s not the adrenaline and general awakeness coffee leaves me with, but the comforting feeling it brings me that keeps me coming back to it.


And just like coffee is a comfort to me, so is an outfit like this. It’s such a simple one, but this type of outfit always make me feel alright. I’ll be the first to admit (that’s a weird saying. I don’t know that anyone is the first to say anything anymore) that I often have days where I am having trouble putting together an outfit or thinking I am happy with the one I chose and then realizing once I am at work that I just don’t like it. But this type of outfit – button up a line mini, comfy tee/blouse and loafers/oxfords – always brings me a sense of re-assurance and comfort. It’s nice to know what those outfits are for yourself. On days when you are just not feeling it, it’s good to know what to put on that takes little thought and time, and always gives you that ‘alright’ feeling.

What are those outfits for you? Let me know in the comments below!

    Woah, you are becoming more and more like me lately, style-wise. I have the same haircut, and my taste in makeup and clothing is really similar to yours at the moment (I also own almost the exact same pieces you wear in this post, although I’m more of an earl grey with milk and honey type of person), and that made me weirdly glad right now ^^

    Your new haircut looks fabulous!

    That outfit for me is a pair of black jeans, striped top and a long cardigan with my white high high tops 🙂

    This outfit really seems to embody you very well, Alex!
    I love the casual feel of the t-shirt, the femininity of the skirt and the class of the oxfords!
    I think, for me, a comfortable outfit would be a knee-length printed dress which fits almost perfectly on my body. It’s just so easy to put on and I’ll feel comfortable in it all day 😉

    Alive as Always
