The Style Post: Post Work Coffee Dates

 

Hat: Topshop | Top: Topshop | Shorts: Missguided | Bag: Zara | Sunglasses: ASOS | Shoes: Topshop | Nails: Orly – Holla

Last week after work I traded my standard “skint blogger” dinner of rice and vegetables for an evening coffee date with one of my favourite girls. Elisha is one of my favourite friends when it comes to mindless chatter and as of last week is now the new resident photographer for Hello October, as I can’t stand to see the boy as miserable as he is when I make him play the part of “human tripod” – that sounds weird – but hopefully you get where I’m coming from. We snapped away for a good hour – laughing at all the awful things I do once the camera points at me. These include, but are not limited to: crab hands, angry jaw and serious slouching. 

Once we had everything we needed it was clear out sugar levels had dropped dramatically, so we headed off to the Duke of Yorks Cinema (the newer one by the Komedia) and forced the poor guy on the counter to make us iced mochas – he had no idea what he was doing but the coffee was pretty damn good anyway and kept me going until 2am (did you notice it was like I never went on holiday this weekend?). I was basically on a coffee drip the next day too, so this week I’m on a coffee detox.

    Oooo I love your shorts! Boohoo did a similar print as a playsuit once so I thought it may be that with a white tee on top! 🙂 Love paisley prints x x

    Love this outfit, those shorts are adorable! Aha I'm always getting forced to make iced coffees at work even though we don't actually have the stuff to make them, I just make it up and hope the customer likes it!
