I hope everyone had a great weekend! Here are a few outfits I wore recently. The striped swing dress I’m wearing above is one of my favorite dresses from LOFT last year. I was at LOFT Outlet last weekend and I recall seeing an in store poster with a model wearing this dress so I believe you can get it there in case you missed out on this dress last year. I’m a bit obsessed with this Halogen soft collarless jacket as well since I haven’t stopped wearing it.

LOFT Berry Swing Dress, size XS regular
I tried on this berry swing dress on Friday since I wanted to make sure I ordered the right size. Size XS fit me a little loose which you can’t tell in the pictures above so I need this dress in XXS regular. I’d say this dress fits true to size. Swing dresses are so easy and forgiving for the spring and summer. Just throw it on and you’re ready to go. I wish this dress had pockets but I hope they offer this style in other colors and prints as the season rolls along.
LOFT Leafy V-Neck Shell, size XS regular
I also tried on this leafy v-neck shell since the print caught my eye. The v-neck and arm holes are a bit generous on me in size XS regular so I believe I need this top in size XXS regular but it’s currently out of stock in that size. I’d say this top fits true to size to a little bit large because the cut is on the boxier side.
Matcha Lattes & Cake Rolls at Ogawa Coffee
10 Milk StreetBoston, MA 02108
I finally went to Ogawa Coffee with my friend after they’ve been open for exactly one year. Thanks to Vicky for sharing this gem. I bookmarked it but I never went until this weekend because I didn’t realize it was super close to my daily jaunts around town. I admittedly have the worst sense of direction so if I had known where it was then I would have definitely gone sooner/last year. It’s closest to the State Street T stop off Washington Street for those of you in Boston. My friend and I requested Totoro and a bunny for the latte art and their talented barista, Haruna Murayama, made it happen. Both drawings turned out so well and we were trying to take THE perfect picture of our drinks until I realized the ice cream that came with our cake rolls was starting to melt.

Lulu Cafe Menu
4508 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19139
I’m going back home to see my family next weekend and I just realized that I forgot to share this cute new bubble tea shop I went to in Philly called Lulu Cafe. My sister took us and the Taiwanese shop owner is the sweetest! It also turns out that she is good friends with my cousin and his wife in New Jersey. Talk about a small world. Hopefully next time we go for some tea and snacks Lulu the french bulldog will be there. She’s the shop’s namesake and she is super cute.

My first peonies
Lastly, if you follow me on snapchat (username: whatjesswore) we came across peonies for $6 a bunch (5 in a bundle). The flower stand in front of Bath & Bodyworks, the new Forever 21 and Primark stores in Downtown Crossing sell the unopened ones for $6 a bunch but if you want the fully open blooms then they’re $10 a bunch. They take cash only but if you’re looking for affordable peonies then definitely swing by. It was our first time buying peonies so we were both super psyched. I’m looking forward to seeing how they’ll bloom in the next few days.
Thanks for reading!
