Coffee, coffee, coffee! STAT!
I need coffee in an IV!
Who else but Lorelai Gilmore from my favorite show, Gilmore Girls. Who doesn’t love Lorelai with her lifestyle of coffee, fun and fandom? If I could have a wardrobe filled with Gilmore inspired pieces, I’d definitely be happy, wouldn’t you? This sweater is inspired by one Lorelai wears to Luke’s following Rory’s break up with Dean (#teamJess here by the way!), but it’s updated with some Lorelai quirks- thumbholes so you can enjoy your coffee, and a pocket with a hidden rainbow heart so you can channel your inner CareBear of course!
