Southern California experienced a fairly cold and rainy Fall, and that weather has carried over into Winter and the new year. I seriously love it! When you live in a warmer climate like I do, you relish any chance you get to wear something different than you're normally able to. I've been reaching for this trench coat pretty regularly, especially on days where it rains off and on. I bought it specifically for our trip to the east coast, but it has served me well ever since. Paired with classic ballet flats, the look is functional yet chic.


You just can't go wrong with a tailored trench coat. I think most people wear them in Spring, but they can work year-round depending on where you live. It really is one of the most polished pieces you will ever own. I used to have one in a more classic style and in a traditional khaki color, but I sadly had to part ways when it no longer fit. Back in early Fall, I set out on a mission to find a decent replacement. I try to shop for petite outerwear when I can, and luckily Express came through. They have a more limited petite section than some stores do, but they also have some great staples that are extremely versatile. Although this isn't the color I had in mind, I'm really happy with it. The large zippered pockets keep my hands warm, and the length of the sleeves are perfect. I love wearing this coat with jeans, but I've also worn it over my black faux leather leggings and it definitely elevated the overall look. It would be gorgeous over a dress for a more formal occasion. The styling options are endless.

I'm really drawn to classic pieces in Winter...how would you describe your Winter style?

    1. Thanks Rachelle! The sizing runs small in my opinion. I normally wear a 6.5 or 7 in shoes and I went with a 7 and they are still a bit snug on my feet. They do stretch out a bit though and they are much more comfortable now then they were the first few times I wore them. I love them so much! You would look so adorable in them :) These have always been my "dream" shoes and I think they are worth it.

  3. You know, I have this trench in pink and I really LOVE it, but I also wouldn't mind having the black too because it's that good, and sometimes I want something more subdued than pink. I love it here with the classic denim and cap toe flats!!

    1. Yes, the pink is gorgeous too! I hope they bring back more colors, but you really can't go wrong with any of them because the silhouette is so classic :)
