café days


kenneth cole shades . vintage leather jacket . pendant necklace from istanbul . hat from accessorize . h&m tee


milan is filled with adorable italian cafés that have outdoor seating surrounded by century old buildings and ruins. matt and i frequent a few local favorites to enjoy some choice coffee and piadinas while getting work done. it's magical simplicity.

  4. I am so jealous. One of the biggest things I miss about Italy is sitting in cafes people watching, writing, and of course having the best espresso!! Send me an Italian macchiato and I'll send you a slice of American apple pie? : )

  17. I love sitting outside quaint cafes sipping coffee! I also love your jacket! For some reason there is something about a red leather jacket that screams interesting, intelligent writer to me :)
    Hope you have a fabulous time in Milan!

  29. I just read most of the comments. I'm with Lee: the last pic is incredible, and the fact that you look so mysterious and cool while sipping a dopio in Milan is pretty hot. Now that I know you actually PAINTED the graphic doodle on your mac makes me realize you have cahones, chica, and talent. If I would painted on mine, people would just ask me why there's black paint smeared all over my laptop. Thank you for sharing your holiday with us by the way. Just one more reason to love you!

  30. Mamma mia! I love those photos! And guess what...I have the same HAT !! and i wear it the same way. Now, is this a surprise? not really :)

    You should not have left the food in color, i just went to stuff my face with a pizza. Have you considered working in advertising?! ;)

    See you one day soon in Milan!
