Voltaire Coffee Date

December 13, 2023

My buddy Lynn and I met in downtown San Jose for a wonderful coffee experience at Voltaire Coffee House!

Shop the Look:


The Outfit

I wore a lot of oldies-but-goodies for this morning coffee. I’ve been trying to wear what I have rather than buying a lot of new things (though to be honest, I do hope Santa will bring a few new pieces my way.)  I love my classic houndstooth wool coat and my paired it with my sassy houndstooth booties (a Nordstrom sale pick from years ago).  The red sparkle turtleneck also several years old (from Chico’s).  The NYDJ black denim and the pretty earrings are current and shoppable!  My Marc Jacobs tote was a splurge from many years ago, but shows you that a classic leather tote never really goes out of style. Doesn’t Lynn look amazing in cobalt blue?  Get her adorable puff sleeve sweater on sale here!


The Coffee

Lynn and I both got cappuccinos and monkey bread pastries for our morning treat. Everything was delicious and the location was super cute.  On our way out, we got some cold brews to go and those were wonderful as well.  We definitely recommend Voltaire for a perfect morning cup!

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have our own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!
