chai tea latte with soy

Fur jacket, Men’s Frye boots, Beaded Cardi: Vintage. Winter leggings: American Apparel. Dress: Vintage from Foley & Corinna. Bag: Forever 21. Shades: Ray Ban. Hat: H&M. Gloves: Street vendor. Scarf: (not seen) Vintage/Thrift. Nail Polish: Pixel Pretty by Sally Hansen.
Amazing the stuff you find when you go shopping in your own wardrobe. I fell in love with this ‘Carrie inspired’ 50s dress with full under skirt the moment I tried it on in the vintage section at Foley and Corinna and found it while sorting out my stuff at home.
To keep it year round, I wore it over thermals and a couple of thin layers, including a black polo neck and the old Fryes. The beaded cardi peaking out under the jacket is a recent vintage find (per my twitter messages last week).
ps. This is my fave drink at Starbucks. What’s yours? I don’t like their coffee so I’m pretty limited I think.

    layers is the only way to dress in the winter. i just started reading your blog a few weeks ago and i love all the photos, everyday can be so beautiful sometimes.

    my fav drink is either and iced green tea latte with soy or a caramel machiatto with soy and extra caramel. i have a sweet tooth.

    I am so picky when it comes to coffee. I have the no foam, lite whip caramel macchiato @ Starbucks almost every morning. It’s more a treat than your average cup of joe. Love your look everyday!

    Love your fur jacket! Pics numbers 6 and 7 are my faves – love how they’re played around your nail polish!

    As for Starbucks drinks, I only order tall Americano and sometimes iced latte with skim milk when it’t hot outside.

  14. Francheska says:

    my favorite is the chai tea latte and pumpkin spice for the winter or green tea frapuccino for summer…. but I must let you know that WE DONT EVEN HAVE A STARBUCKS IN MARBELLA!!!!!!!!! complete bullshit I swear πŸ™‚

    I’m with you. Soy chai latte is my all time fav. Actually I don’t like most of their coffees either therefore I stick to my chai.

    Love that dress. I’ve been looking for something similar for a while now but haven’t found anything that I like.

    Love the Frye boots. You can pull them off with anything!

    My fav drink at Starbucks must be toffee nut latte. It’s one outta three christmas specials here in Germany. Don’t know if you got them in the States. If not, you’re really missing something πŸ™‚

    i thought those were fryes — lovingly worn in and perfect — fave starbucks drink? i don’t drink coffee either but holiday season i love their decaf eggnog lattes! and i used to order tea lattes before they introduced them as “Mistos” — one chai tea bag, one green ginger tea bag, steamed milk with a bit of foam ands some raw sug…(very picky virgo here)

  25. L. says:

    i’m in love with the bag! !!

  26. Jacqueline says:

    I like the pumpkin spice latte. They aren’t making it anymore so now I get a vanilla latte. I like our coffee at home the best. That dress is gorgeous on you and it definitely looks cold in New York! xoxo

    love that last photo – sort of a nonchalant chic, no? love all the layers

  29. Carolina says:

    loves it!

    i recently ‘gave up’ starbucks on the regular to save the cash for something i love more than coffee…clothes! haha so i go maybe once a week now, but when i do go, i always order the same thing: no foam, skinny vanilla latte. the stupid starbucks down the street from me pretty much never fails to burn the espresso.

    love your blog!
