Coffee & Cafés

Hello, lovely readers!

I hope that life has been treating you all very well. I have been working a lot, and haven't had much time to blog or slow down. That is why when I got off of work today, I decided to go to one of my favorite places: my local, independent coffee shop.  

Now don't get me wrong, I love Starbucks just as much as the next basic girl (haha). However, there's something about a small, independently owned coffee shop that really makes me feel warm and cozy. Perhaps it's the rustic feel of this shop, or the unique beverages and delicacies (see the above doughnut for a great example of this). Whatever it is, I find that when I spend time in my favorite locally owned café, my thoughts tend to stop racing for a moment, and I can just r e l a x. 

The deliciousness that I devoured (probably too quickly) today was a maple bacon cake doughnut (I know it sounds weird, but it was actually very tasty!) and a dirty (i.e. - espresso infused)pumpkin chai tea. Overall, it was absolutely divine. :)

Another thing that I love about small cafés is the decor. It's usually so earthy and unique. Unfortunately, I only took one photo of the lovely decorations in this particular coffee house (I was enjoying the tea and doughnut way to much, apparently). 

 (Forgive the filter - I didn't save the original before posting it to my instagram story!)

I also love that this location had cards, books, live music, and even board games that the customers can use! There's just nothing like a good coffee house. :)

Oh, and here's some minimal outfit details from today's journey:

And that's all I have to share for today. I hope that you are all well, and that you have the opportunity to go out and enjoy your own local coffee shop. 
Do you have a favorite local hangout? Tell me in the comments!

Have a beautiful day,
