My Cup of Tea


“Tea Breaks” are a sacred time for me to disconnect and de-stress in the middle of a hectic work day. Sometimes, the endless onslaught of URGENT/ASAP/IMPORTANT emails wear me down and I have to close my laptop, set my phone on silent and take a walk outside away from the chaos.

Luckily, there’s a Starbucks (surprise!) next to my office where I like to grab a hot cup of Earl Grey every now and then. The spot makes for great people watching while I take time to collect my thoughts before heading back to the office.

Max Mara Gilet

While getting my Starbucks fix, I came across these adorable puppies. Yes, it’s a coincidence their fluffy coats matched mine…

Leopard Print Matched with Neutral Colors

For this particular Monday stroll, I paired a leopard print blouse from Zara with a comfy camel hair Max Mara gilet and skirt. Tip: When mixing fun prints for the office, balance them out with neutral tones (like this camel gilet, cream coat and skirt ensemble) to make them office-appropriate.

Black Prada Bag

Since it’s chillier of late, I threw on a roomy coat and grabbed my catch-call Prada, which held my phone hostage while I relaxed. Just what I needed to end a long week while saying hello to the weekend!
