Go To The Trenches

Top - F21, Coat, Necklace - H&M, Jeans - JBrand

There's nothing more classic than a simple trench coat. It can be worn with dresses, with work clothes, or casually with skinny jeans and a simple top. Throw on a pair of classic pumps and a neon statement necklace, and BOOM, you've got yourself a look, rather than an outfit. I was inspired by this pin, and despite the fact that I don't have legs that go on forever, I thought I'd try the look in my own way. I think the trench really pulls the whole outfit together in a way that no other piece could. If you're not catching my hinting here...go get a trench if you don't have one! It's a great spring addition to your wardrobe, and it's classic enough that you'll wear it in the fall and next spring too. I've had this particular trench for at least 2 years and another vintage Burberry trench I've had for ten years. If you're looking for a piece to invest in, this is a good one to go for.

The Boyfriend is away for work this weekend, and as much as I'll miss him, I'm looking forward to some me time to recharge my batteries. I'm definitely running on empty these days and fighting off a cold with everything I've got. I plan on catchup time with some of my ladies, sleeping in on Saturday morning (a rarity these days!) and then making myself some eggs and coffee, not wearing a lick of makeup all day, and then maybe reading a good book in the yard with my pup Saturday afternoon before I gear up for Easter festivities on Sunday. Ah, reminds me of my single days. Sometimes, for a fleeting moment, I miss it. Shh. Don't tell the Boyfriend.

Have a great weekend, loves!

I have a trench I bought years ago from Old Navy that I love! Unfortunately I've outgrown it and need to replace it. It's certainly a must have in any wardrobe!
