A Coat For All Seasons

 Trench coat season is here!  But, wait, isn't a trench coat appropriate for all seasons? -ha! It's an all weather, all purpose kind of coat. At least that's how I use mine.  I was working with a client recently who needed a trench coat for a few upcoming trips.  Well, that got me thinking all about trench coats. I thought I'd share a few thoughts on this wardrobe staple, as well as a few of my favorites.

 I've been wearing my trench a ton lately.  It's been raining, windy and cooler here in Houston, and my trench has been prefect.  I love all the different features of trench coats. The buckles, the flaps, the belt, and the collar make each trench unique.  Yesterday, my step mom brought over a Burberry trench coat that had been passed down to her, and you should have seen all the bells and whistles on that thing.  It really was a very cool coat.

 I had to include a picture of my new watch.  I love it and think it's perfect for the warmer months ahead!  You'll be seeing a lot of it, because it goes with everything!

  1. you are RIGHT - I need a trench! So classic, and dressed up or down. My all-season coat is an orange leather coat, but it's vintage and I'm starting to baby it because I love it so much.

  2. Carly, love the trench. I'm actually thinking of purchasing a leopard print one. To spice things up.
