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?
OK, so if you know me, or follow my insta-stories, you may have heard me talk about being a huge Real Housewives fan. Well. . .while I was putting outfits together for New York Fashion Week, I watched an episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Marlo and Nene went shopping with Eva for a wedding dress. Marlo, who has an enviable closet and great style, was wearing a black Balmain logo tee and she looked chic as ever. While logo handbags are played out, logo tee’s and clothing are still having a moment. So I decided to purchase a black Balmain tee and create an outfit around it for fashion week! Does that make me a superfan? haha
I wore my new Balmain tee with military green pants, my new Chloe boots-which are on major sale by the way, and this cozy Calvin Klein coat. It was an urban street style look which was quiet yet New York Fashion Week worthy. This is a look I will continue to wear at home too until our spring weather arrives. It’s cold in California this year! Brrrrrr! When spring hits, I will show you this tee again, and the pants, styled separately for spring. They will be spring staples in my closet!
My friend Laura from Have-Need-Want took these photos outside our hotel before we began our day of shows. Day one of New York Fashion Week was a fun day. I attended Noon by Noor, Laurence & Chico, and Badgley Mischka. Stay tuned for photos from those shows! You can see the final walks saved in my Instagram Story Highlights. They are saved in the highlight with Anna Wintor’s face as the cover photo. Trying to have a little chic fashion humor on there. haha
