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?

Thanks for stopping by!

Inspired by Real Housewives

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

Falling into winter in ruffles

wearing: silver disc earrings c/o Chico’s / fall sunglasses / lipstick / black layering tee c/o Chico’s (avl in several colors!) / burgundy ruffle cardigan sweater c/o Chico’s / third tier of convertible silver necklace (sold out, also love this one) / nail polish / silver and blue bold ring c/o Chico’s / black handbag / grey bootcut jeans c/o Chico’s (I’m 5’4″ for reference) / boots /

I love a good fall into winter outfit. The weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area has been swinging from low 80’s to low 70’s, with mornings and evenings dipping into the 50’s. This means we have to wear layers, or we will either freeze to death, or melt like the witch from the “Wizard of Oz!”

Chicos’ is one of my favorite shops for finding great layering pieces. I always love their layering tee’s, convertible jewelry, and outerwear. This short sleeve, ruffle sweater is fabulous for the weather right now. It keeps me cozy in 50 degree weather, and I can still keep it on during the day when the temperatures soar into the 70’s. It can be paired with a short sleeve tee, a 3/4 sleeve tee, or something heavier. I have been wearing it with a 3/4 sleeve tee or long sleeve tee. When winter hits, a turtleneck, or thin sweater will be fabulous underneath it. It’s a great fall into winter piece!

These jeans are super comfy too. They fit great in the waist and hips. I’m short, and sometimes I opt for petite lengths in my jeans. This pair is regular length. These jeans are great if I wear high boots or heels. I could probably use another inch on my boots for the jeans to hang properly. Mmmm, adding that to my shopping list! I wish I was just an inch taller, everything would fit better! Haha, do you ever feel that way?

If you read my post last Friday, you know I invested in a new laptop. I can’t even begin to tell you how luxurious it feels to be able to type freely on my new laptop. A keyboard is something to not take for granted! I’m working on a review of this laptop for you, so stay tuned for that before the holidays. I know it would make a great gift!

Speaking of gifts, Chico’s is currently offering their jewelry for buy one, get one half off. I’m not sure how long the promo will be in effect, so hurry over there now and grab some gifts for the holidays-and for yourself! I love their convertible necklaces, I can’t tell you how fabulous they are! It’s like nine necklaces in one. I’m always switching mine up. I own two of them!

Are you thinking of gift shopping yet? Or is it just me and my early bird mentality?
