Coffee Run

by Jessica Sturdy on January 7, 2014

Admittedly, I’ve turned into a bit of a coffee snob. I’m blaming this one on Stumptown being a few doors down from my office this fall… Their espresso is so good! When I was back home in Illinois over the holidays, I really missed being able to just walk out the door and grab a coffee or latte at a cute neighborhood shop. (One of the many things I love about the East Village!) Even though I got back to New York really late on Thursday night (that’s a story for a different day), I still jolted out of bed on Friday morning, ready to go grab a hot one.

When I’m running out to grab my daily skim latte or just running a few neighborhood errands, you can usually find me in something of this sort… Comfy jeans, cute flats, a cozy sweater, and one of my Zara blanket scarves.

I love the colors you combined in this look; the burgundy with the dark wash jeans and the dark green in the scarf. Sweet look!

Love those loafers! And I’m still working on mastering the blanket scarf look, but I’m still in the stage where it looks like I literally wrapped a blanket around my neck :)


Ashleigh January 7, 2014 at 8:18 am

Such a cute casual look! I’m in love with that scarf!

Love this outfit!

LOVE the wine and the navy together such a pretty combo I would have never thought about- thanks for the daily inspiration!


Naghmeh January 7, 2014 at 9:55 am

Such a cute outfit, love the colour combination and that burgundy is gorgeous :)
you’re lucky you can just run out for a quick coffee and have options to choose from, I live in the suburbs so it’s a bit harder!

Admittedly, I have turned into quite the coffee snob as well. You wouldn’t believe it but Louisville actually has a bunch of little cafe’s and local coffee shops as well. Even in these frigid temperatures I somehow muster up the courage to walk a couple blocks for my favorite vanilla latte.

PS amazing outfit :) my Madewell blanket scarf has been on serious repeat lately too.

This is really cute, I’m loving that scarf…been trying to find something similar over here, but no luck yet!

Sam January 7, 2014 at 11:25 am

I’ve seen you check in at Stumptown a lot, but I think I might have to try it myself! Love this casual look, and of course, the flats. Glad to have you back in town!



Kristin @ Crumbs and Curls January 7, 2014 at 11:28 am

I need you to teach me how you tie your Zara scarf and make it actually look like a scarf. Yours looks nice and compact…Mine just looks so bulky like I’m wearing a legit blanket as a scarf. #helpme


Jessica Sturdy January 7, 2014 at 12:13 pm

I posted a video on Instagram! :)


Jordan January 7, 2014 at 12:14 pm

That burgundy sweater is gorgeous on you! The plaid scarf and loafers make the look that much better.

Those Zara blanket scarfs are the BEST thing ever. I practically live in mine.

Your hair looks beautiful here, much better than mine ever does on a coffee run!


Lindsay January 7, 2014 at 4:35 pm

Love the outfit! It’s been so cold here lately, I’m been living in large sweaters and oversized scarves (but I have boots and a few lawyers of socks with it).



Kat January 7, 2014 at 10:18 pm

So cute!! Zara scarves are possibly the best thing ever! And I’m obsessed with Tommy Hilfiger, so obviously that sweater is killer 😉

I love this outfit! Such cute pairings and I love all the details. I love your blog!



Lindsay January 8, 2014 at 12:18 pm

I just started drinking coffee myself for simple reason of keeping warm!

Love that sweater!



Cherilyn January 8, 2014 at 2:17 pm

Really cute outfit! I have a question though, how can you wear shoes without socks in the winter time?? It’s been so cold!! I’m definitely a boot with jeans type of girl except when it’s warmer out! :-)


Kelsey January 8, 2014 at 9:25 pm

I live in the East Village, too! What’s your favorite spot? The Bean has a soft spot in my heart – best chai tea latte, ever.

Hi Jessica,
I’ve been following your blog for awhile now and just now commenting. I love your loafers in this outfit and while you’ve stated your love for Stumptown (if it’s anything similar to the one in Portland, OR, I would be a coffee snob too), Starbucks has a new Caramel Flan Latte that I think is definitely worth trying. Also wanted to add that I’ve noticed your love for your alma mater and saw this bag at Target that I think you need solely for the color combo:


Mishelle January 9, 2014 at 2:03 am

Love your loafers! Perfect outfit for a chilly day!


Casey January 9, 2014 at 11:58 am

Loving all the bows you have been sporting lately!


Lauren Olivia & Co. January 11, 2014 at 1:19 am

Purple is such a pretty color on you!
