The problem with me blogging in the morning is that my brain is mush. I used to be a morning person but now I am a sleep as late as possible and then spend 2 hours enjoying my coffee person. Let's just say my mornings aren't nearly as productive as they used to be. So right now, all I want to talk about is caffeine and maybe toast... because I'm also hungry.


  1. Ahhh, coffee is the best, I am just getting into my 2nd cup and I must say I am feeling a heck of a lot happier than when I woke up!
    LOVE this outfit, the stripes, the faux fur vest (best purchase by the way, can't believe I didn't keep mine)and those jeans fit you like a glove...also must say I love your black pumps perfect with your dark straight leg jeans.
    You are looking hot and chic-which in my books is the perfect combo! Always love your pretty smiling pics ;)
    And eat something other than an apple this morning you crazy girl!

  3. I really like how you layered the fur vest over the blazer... i will definitely have to try this out!

  4. I know what you mean. I blog at night usually. Or at least after coffee.

    Love the blazer.


  5. You look so cute! Love the colors. I love my caffeine as well... I'm drinking a cappucino as we speak. :)

    Happy holidays!


  6. Haha what would life be without coffee. Seriously, I hardly function without at least three shots of espresso in me. It's kind of sad. Anyway, as for this outfit = stunning. Love the texture with the faux fur and the stripes are such a wonderful punch of colour and pattern! Beautiful Melissa!

  16. Such a pretty outfit, I like the bright stripes!

    And I am totally not a morning person either, I never was. I still have to buy a coffee machine, because I never feel like going outside to pick up a coffee. You can imagine that my "morning grumpiness" most of the time lasts quite a while ;-)
