Hiya!

Welcome to City Brewed. We’re all about celebrating the life that happens over coffee: morning rituals, fresh-brewed inspiration, and taking a peek inside cafes near and far.

The Elements of Style

Anne-Fontaine-City-Brewed

Isn’t it funny how sometimes, without even realizing it at all, your wardrobe molds to fit your life? To me, it’s hard to categorize one’s style as “edgy” or “bohemian” because like moods, isn’t style ever changing?

You wardrobe, in a sense, reflects your daily activities. Some, like myself, crave comfort for long stints in local coffee shops. Others value crisp, perfectly tailored pieces that give you that “straight off the runway” look.

As women, sometimes we crave both. The casual sensibility that comes with a pair of denim cutoffs, yet the boss-lady attitude that accompanies a new tailored button down.

Sometimes you get lucky. Sometimes, just sometimes, you stumble upon those little closet staples that enter your wardrobe with hopes of becoming a favorite. It’ll hang in there on some of the most important days: the days when you run from meeting to meeting, and it’ll hang loose when you opt for more casual afternoons, writing from the back of your favorite coffee shop.

Anne Fontaine has perfected this idea with the perfect little oversize silk top. Buttoned to the top on dressed up days, and left open during those that are more dressed down, it’s that top that makes its way into your wardrobe that you’ll refuse to let go of. Today, comfort may be key, but tomorrow, who knows? It’s all about possibility.
