the classic trench

Monday, February 2, 2015
When I think of a classic wardrobe piece, the trench coat is probably the first thing that pops into my mind (along with a crisp white button-down or a LBD).

I just found the perfect trench at MARSHALL'S this weekend (on a rainy day, no less!) and am thrilled with it. It's hard to find a classic trench at an affordable price point with no weird detailing (piping, ruffles, any color besides khaki, etc.) I got inspired to look on Pinterest for cute ways to style my trench.

With a soft, casual button down, distressed jeans and heels:

With stripes, black jeans and flats:

With a simple dress:

I plan to bring my new coat with me when I go to Europe in 1 month. Ahhh, I am SO SO SO excited!! I imagine walking around Paris, blending in with the effortlessly chic Parisiennes I've always heard about. Side note, if you love all things French or want to know how those cool Paris ladies live, you have to read How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are. It was a short yet entertaining read!
