PEPPERMINT MOCHA


I must have had Starbucks on the brain when I got dressed today as it's only now I've realised how matchy-matchy it is...and how in tune it was with a certain coffee shop that I'd planned to visit with the girls.

Unfortunately, we've come to realise that our weekly 'coffee' habit is actually an excuse to go shopping, and I'm loathed to suggest it again because a) my purse has taken a battering lately and b) the girl in there gave me that 'you-come-here-all-the-time' smirk that they reserve only for helpless souls like me.

Nevertheless it was a nice trip, and as well as grabbing a bargain in Primark, I also got the chance to wear this lovely green jumper that I bought in Bicester village a couple of years ago [it was the only thing I bought and it was the cheapest shop there...that place is expensiiiiive!]. It's got some really nice detailing, and despite all of those holes is actually warmer than you might think! I'm definitely hoping to resurrect it this Autumn, as well as this emerald bag that I was fortunate enough to win from Max-C a while back.

Now that I've got my retail and caffeine fix sorted, I'm off to fill out more applications and try to make things happen with my life.

At least I'll always have my peppermint mochas.

Dressing as Starbucks? I knew I was behind in showing my love for that place! Embarrassingly, last night they had to ask me and my bestie to leave so that they could close. Whoops!

Oh wow, look at you! Very pretty! I need some green in my life, I've lusting after a green sheer blouse that's in topshop at the moment.. I just have to justify a real reason to buy it :P

Whenever I go for a tea with friends we always end up in the shops. They go hand in hand!

My uni is in the centre of town so my money seems to be spent on stupid things like, socks from primark, lipbalms from superdrug ect! I love the detail on the jumper - amazing! x

I have a black top from ASOS with cut out arms like that. Everyone thinks I must be freezing in it but it's actually quite toasty!

Is it so wrong that I'm craving a trip to Starbucks right now?? lol

That green is a fabulous colour against your hair :) x x

Oh man, love that jumper, it's a colour to die for. As well as having a thing for Starbucks Chai Latte, the green they use is just my favourite. You look fabulous and worry not about the snarky coffee shop woman and her smirk- I get the same one from the Cafe Nero guy, just because I go there each week and I';m lugging half a ton of law books with me...

Maria said...

You always look so nice in green, I miss my caffeine fixes, I think I dress more like a Costa coffee though ;)

Such a great outfit, I love the colour of your jumper. I'm also a huge fan of peppermint lattes from Starbucks so I must give the mocha version a try :) xx

Jazzabelle said...

i'm definitely trying a peppermint mocha next time i pop to starbucks, though i may go for a hot one rather than iced! haha. thanks for the recommendation :)
