Blogging All Day

Oh weekend, why you gotta be so rude and be over already?  Just, the pits, am I right?

This past weekend Michael and I took a day trip to New Haven to have lunch, drink some coffee (obviously), and “accidently” go shopping. Seriously though, I’ve been on a mad shopping craze the past month. I think I’m just so dang excited for spring to come that I’m collecting all the spring clothes!

Either way, I went out in full blogger gear with my new favorite top from Forever21, the  Blogging All Day Tee  (Check out my Forever 21 Coupon Codes here!) Seriously, how perfect is this shirt, and accurate. Because when I’m not blogging, I’m thinking about it, planning it, revising it in my head.


We stopped at the cutest little Yale cafe (college towns always have the best coffee shops.)  It was called The Happiness Lab, and had a board game room in the back. Almost made me wish I was back in college when you had free time for things like “board game rooms.” I settled for a well-made cappuccino.



We ventured into one more little cafe called Masion Mathis , which had coffee, fresh juice and hard cider on tap. I think I could have just lived there, forever. And, their amazing tile floors were the perfect backdrop for these Yellow Flats from Ann Taylor  (Check out my Ann Taylor Coupon Codes!)


A quick shopping sesh, because like I said, I currently have a problem.

We finished the day off with lunch at Elm City Social and drinks at Ordinary. If you follow me on the Snapchat machine – @kallie_e88 – you saw all the fun.
