dek & i love trying out new coffee shops, especially on weekend mornings when we are both off. (this is my 3rd saturday off in a row & i am LOVING it!)
this time we headed for downtown garland to check out generator coffee, recommended by my friend daiana from work. we didn't look at the menu, we didn't read reviews, we just woke up and went and loved it! the ambiance of sitting under tiny white lights is magical and the fact that there are games to play while you sip your morning latte is genius. we played connect four & then headed outside in this gloomy, yet sort of warm weather for a quick photoshoot. we are loving photography more by the day and we love practicing any chance we get. hope you enjoy the below photos :)

beautiful fall leaves, my grandfather made me appreciate the beauty in the different colors. fall was his favorite season.
i am pleased to report that i found a super cute and really cozy winter jacket :)
it did cost $60 total, but it's already proving to be well worth it & i'm so happy with my purchase!
we headed to old navy because they were having a sale and while the decision was between either this gray jacket or a black waist-length pea coat, i love the longer length of this one and the toggle detail is what sealed the deal. my sister and i ended up getting the same coat just different colors, it's just that cute! i sized up and got a medium, so it would layer well over shirts and sweaters and if you can't tell from the photos below, i absolutly LOVE the large pockets, super convenient for your phone, keys, gloves, etc... i went with this gray color & mirelle got navy blue and of course we plan to exchange them with each other every few weeks, haha! #soulshoppers is the word we use to describe our shopping habits because even when we are apart, we often pick out and purchase the same items just in different colors or variations. mirelle also found i also found for mirelle these adorable black boots with blue zipper detailing in the back at burlington for only $30! she was on the hunt for a knee-length black boot & they were really perfect! (they remind me of these)
on another note, sunday was kind of a funky day for me.
i guess you can say i woke up on the wrong side of the bed or whatever, but i was just in a bad mood and sort of really "moping around," and even taking frustration out on dekel, which i have since apologized for, but still today i am feeling emotional and a little 'out-of-whack.' anyways, about to wash away all negativity with a warm shower since it's approx. FREEZING 43 degrees over here!
second saturday in a row that i am off and i am loving that!
i spent the morning with dekel, having a very strong (quad shot!) latte + bagel w/cream cheese (for me) & breakfast burrito w/salsa (for him) at dunn bros coffee, again. it was much more crowded this time but we squeezed into a small corner table until some big, comfy chairs opened up and we swooped in.
it's been pretty chilly here in dallas the last few days, so this morning i bundled up with layers in a long tank top, a long sleeve shirt and then this soft, knit sweater topped off with a hat, scarf and knee-high boots to keep me warm. since getting this hat a few weeks ago, i am falling more & more in love with it and hats in general and i want all different kinds, like this one and this one in particular!
on that fashion note, my sister, mirelle, & i are headed to burlington & old navy today to try to find a winter jacket or coat. i am leaning toward a pea-coat, since they look so cute with everything and layer well, but my budget is $50 so we will have to see...hopefully there will be some sales!!
