Sometimes you just need to go back to the basics.

This trench coat was a gift from my parents for my 21st birthday last July and I know I’ll put it to good use for a very long time. There’s something so classic about a trench coat, and last summer I was seriously on the hunt for the best one  – I stumbled on this Brooks Brothers coat. It was perfect. And I knew it had to be mine. I knew I would be graduating soon, so I wanted something professional, something I could wear to work and wear to run errands.

The weather in Virginia has been bipolar (when hasn’t it been though), so even though it’s been cold, I want to gear my outfits towards Spring. I love the way trench coats look when the sleeves are scrunched up – it screams classic chic to me. A basic striped tee, comfy pants, and heels really can make any outfit desk-to-play appropriate. I also feel like trench coats are a staple for D.C. professionals’ wardrobes – so it makes me fit in…kind of like I’m a real Washingtonian;) (KIDDING, I LOVE YOU, NEW YORK!)

  1. So, you make the basics look amazing and I seriously want to copy this look! I’ve gotten so use to wearing layers and complicated outfits that I have begun to crave simple outfits. Plus stripes make any outfit look amazing!

    Have a great day, beautiful!


    Ps. Would you mind mailing me that trench? K thanks. 😀

    • It’s crazy how easy we can forget how perfect a trench coat is! But thank you. You are the absolute sweetest.

      I’ll mail you that trench if you mail me everything in your closet….K sounds good!!!

  2. What a great outfit post! Such a classic look. I’ve always wanted a trench coat but I have always put other things above it on my wish list, but this post is reminding me that maybe I need to make it more of a priority. It just seems like such a versatile piece!
