ordering a drink from Starbucks with an accent is way more fun.

denim button up: belk / red heart ring, tank: f21 /boyfriend jeans: GAP / scarf: charming charlie's / Java boots: Blowfish Shoes

when i sew, i like to keep my laptop close by. i either blast my itunes or catch up on my fave tv shows (currently Amazing Race, Pan-Am and Once Upon a Time - eeek!) on hulu. yesterday my sister decided to hang with me and tune me in on some recent music videos on youtube - particularly one of her favorite bands, One Direction. they're this band that one the UK X-factor last year - and so Ashley was showing me some behind the scenes video. (i promise, there is a point to this.) 

like i said they're from the UK, so they had their British accents going for them.
and if you know me, the British accent is my all-time favorite accent. back in Chicago, some of my friends and i would go out to dinner and actually talk in British accents the entire time. i especially had fun placing orders at Starbucks - something about saying grande or venti is more fun with an accent.

so anyways watching One Direction's videos made me practice my accent all afternoon.
anyone want to go out to dinner and maybe make a Starbucks run sometime and talk in English accents all evening? 
it's a way exciting life, i know. 

much love.
[happy thursday, friend.]

  5. come to my school! there is a starbucks-serving cafe in the library where i work. i go in there often enough, so she knows me+ accent won't work, but you can totally come and do the accent. ;)

  9. I though I would come back from England with a British accent. Mine just sounds southern, as in from the Southern US. So sad.

    You are adorable!

  21. Ahhh! I have some catching up to do on here (what is wrong with me)?! I totally agree on the accents thing...but I really want to have my Starbucks name be something crazy, like Sarabi from The Lion King. I dunno. To each his own ;)
