Feeling spring vibes in a spring trench coat

Ooooh, it’s starting to look a lot like spring over here! The groundhog was right! The Magnolia’s are blooming, white and pink tree blossoms are flourishing, and the flowers in my front yard are starting to peek out of their green buds. The sun is shining, and offering us daytime temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s. Of course, since it is still winter, the mornings are hovering in the 40’s, and at night it is quite cold. We are getting there!

It feels so close to spring! The spring vibes during the day are causing me to pull out my new spring pieces before I have figured out my spring wardrobe! This spring trench coat is perfect for cutting off the morning chill. It’s lightweight, yet heavy enough to keep me warm with just a tee underneath during our winter mornings. Then, I can take it off during the warmer hours, and put it back on when the sun starts to set, and temperatures drop dramatically. Plus, spring trench coats are a hot trend this year, so you know I will want to rock that!

As we move into spring, denim washes are getting lighter. Hemlines on jeans are starting to hit at the ankles, or be cropped. Look for styles which will show off your fabulous new spring shoes! I have not looked into spring footwear just yet, but slides are definitely hot this year. Thankfully I have my go-to Gucci slides which I love wearing every spring and fall season. They are easy to put on, and offer enough coverage to keep my toes warm. They are great for transitioning from winter into spring. Love them! This pair will definitely be in spring capsule wardrobe! Stay tuned for that. . .

How are temperatures where you live? Are you getting a peek at spring yet?

Sleeveless trench coat for spring

how to style a sleeveless trench coat spring 2019 sleeveless trench coat spring 2019 over jeans snakeskin sandals gabriela hearts nina bag sleeveless trench coat spring 2019spring 2019 street style trench coat trend

One of my favorite trends of the moment is the trench coat trend. Why have I not worn it until now?? Has it seemed to classic? Is it because the Burberry trench coat I own has sat in the back of my closet for over a decade-unworn? Do I always need to have something something new, no matter how classic and timeless the design? Ugh, I digress. . .

Apparently I do need something new, no matter how timeless! I love this sleeveless trench coat for spring 2019. It is great to layer over jeans on a cool spring day. It can also be worn as a dress when the weather warms up! Can’t wait for that warm weather! It is sooooooooo cold this year!!

A trench coat is such an easy way to elevate an outfit this spring season. It can easily be thrown over jeans and a tee, to create a put-together look which is simple and effortless. I’m loving this trench trend!

I wore this outfit the other day while out with my kids. We enjoyed a fun pizza lunch, and then took my son to the Lego store so he could spend his allowance on a new Lego set from the Lego Movie 2. My son is a huge Lego fan, and the movies are his favorite! So this was a really fun outing for him

This outfit was perfect for walking around, and spending time with my kids. I was comfortable enough to walk around with them, yet felt put together enough to walk around Valley Fair without looking too casual. This trench is my new go-to for casual times I don’t want to look so casual! haha

What do you think of the trench coat trend? Although it’s a classic, do you feel yourself gravitating towards the trench this season over other styles? Or have you always been a trench fan?

Fashionable winter coat under $100

comfortable affordable winter coat boots cozy winter coat under $100 fabulous cold weather boots winter coats under $100affordable winter coat fashionablefashionable affordable winter coat

fashionable winter coat under $100 / wearing: ivory CZ earrings / sunglasses / lipstick / plaid winter coat (under $100) / long sleeve black tee / blue scarf (under $100) / bold ring (under $50) / holiday nail polish / black handbag / black skinny jeans (use code CATHY30 to save 30% off) (see original review here) / faux fur boots (under $150) /

I was so excited when I bought this fashionable winter coat under $100. It’s a classic plaid pattern with a modern silhouette. I love how it drapes, plus it’s super cozy! So, when I picked up these fun winter boots, I thought I would wear them together. Ooops!

It is entirely possible I need to make sure I look in the mirror before I leave the house. When I looked at these photos on my laptop, I wasn’t thrilled with the pairing. I love these boots, but not with this coat. I also love this coat, but not with these boots. I should have worn my charcoal booties with the coat, and my black cardigan sweater with the boots! Ugh, hindsight is 20/20.

What I did learn from this pairing, is that although they don’t match, both of these items are comfortable. These boots will be fabulous next February in New York for fashion week since they have a lug sole and a fun faux fur trim. This coat will be cozy in New York too-just paired with different shoes. haha

I plan to wear both pieces quite often over the course of the next few months. They are fun pieces to add to my winter wardrobe, too bad I didn’t look in the mirror before leaving the house! haha

I wore this outfit the other day while strolling Santana Row with my friend Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun. It was fun to see all the holiday decorations while dressed for winter. I love that the weather has cooled down, and that we can all wear our warm clothing now!

Have you ever gotten dressed, left the house, and realized what you wore wasn’t working?
