Daily Look: The Trench Coat

It may not be a Burberry (yet), but I love myself a good trench coat. 

I still remember buying my first one in high school and being so excited about how sophisticated it made me feel. Flash forward 8 years and I still feel the same way! My style evolution has definitely tweaked since then, but all and all, nothing beats a classic piece.

One of my top tips for buying this style of jacket is to find one that's water resistant. I have been through a lot of rainy spring days in this jacket and can't remember ever feeling cold or like it was completely soaked!

One of my favorite ways to wear trench coats is either with a super classic look that has an edge to it or over a tshirt to make it the focal point of my outfit. In this case, I'm doing anything too fancy, but I styled my favorite faux leather tank top from Calvin Klien. 

The leather texture makes everything a little more styled, even though it's a really basic piece!

Even though I'm really jonesing for a pair of pointy toe pumps for my thrifted mom jeans, I think mules are just as fun. While I was definitely never a huge fan of mules, they're actually amazing. If you're one of those people that wants a flat shoe but flats are seemingly uncomfortable - try mules! I'm a convert.

Now that the weather is finally breaking, I cannot wait to style all my spring jackets! I've been waiting so long for this day. Where's that 50 degree weather, Buffalo?
