There are few things I love more than cute little coffee shops. When I was at Bucknell and first starting my blog, I would write from a corner booth at Seventh Street Café. When I lived on the Upper East Side, I spent many days at Caffe Noi (admittedly not as cute as it was convenient). When I moved to the West Village, I alternated among Bluestone Lane, The Elk, and Toby’s. While I love my daily Starbucks stop in Dallas, I’ve been making an effort to seek out independent coffee shops like I’ve done in years past. Two recent favorites include Café Victoria in Victory Park and Magnolias Sous Le Pont in the Harwood District, where we took these pictures. The first has a bright yellow espresso machine and the second has a turquoise paneled exterior so I can get my fix of both caffeine and color. 😉 If you there are any other cute coffee shops in Dallas you’d recommend, definitely let me know!

I love this layered shirting top because it feels as put together as wearing a sweater over a button-down without any bunching underneath. I found a few similar styles which I’ve linked in the slideshow below!

  1. I am always on the hunt for a good coffee place (as long as it has almond milk) and can’t wait to move back to Dallas soon! What is your drink of choice?

  2. That outfit is so cute! And I love Royal Blue Grocery! They have the sweetest staff and it is adorably decorated!

  3. FANTASTIC outfit! We’re definitely still having plenty of sweater weather here in Seattle (hi from Nordstrom corporate!), so I’m grateful for the sweater inspiration– particularly when I can leverage my discount 😉

  4. We live in east Dallas and love White Rock Coffee on NW Highway. It definitely has the unpolished, hippie, east Dallas vibe.
