A Wardrobe Staple: The Trench

There are a few items that I never travel without nor not have in my closet. One of these items is a classic trench coat. This came to my mind the other day when I was helping my mom pack for Paris and realized she didn’t have one. Not only do they keep you dry, but they are a classic staple to any outfit. I will wear mine when I want an extra layer but not a heavy coat, be it raining or sunny. I wore mine all over South Africa (seen above). When packing they are a no-brainer.

I have rounded up a few of my favorites from around the web and all are under $150! You can scroll through the selection and click on any of the photos to shop.

Spring Trench Coat

For someone who has been blogging for a number of years, coming back after four months feels like an eternity. I always said that I wanted blogging to lead me to another avenue so I didn’t have to do it for forever. And as my wishes were answered (photography has now become my life) I realized that I missed having this little outlet. My little place I can say, do, and post whatever I please. This go around, I am doing the blog just for me! No pressure or expectations, just my little place of happy!

Speaking of happy. Spring is around the corner! Usually, I can’t bare the thought of winter dissipating into spring. This only reminds me that summer is around the corner, and if there is one thing I hate, it is summers in Texas. However, this year I have spring on my mind. The flowy blouses, the tailored pants, and the easy trench coats. I have been busy on Pinterest finding loads of inspiration for the upcoming season. This BB Dakota trench, which is perfect now with jeans, will be paired over a white dress and sneakers (or heels) and with a pair of tailored navy trousers I just purchased. A breezy trench is such a classic piece and a great item to add to your closet!

Hats have made a BIG comeback! Be it the graceful styles of Kate Middelton or the fun beach hat options available now, everyone seems to want “the look”.  With every trendy item, overtime as the popularity goes up so does the price. However, I have found some of the most amazing and on-trend hats, on sale! And since we still have a few months of summer (at least in Texas) you still have a long time to wear your new piece!
