Spring Forward : Piped Trench Coat & Yellow


Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! A blog post has been long overdue, but work has been really hectic lately. I'm not sure if you're all as excited as I am, but as the weather gets warmer by the day, I get more and more excited to welcome Spring. One thing I love about Spring is the bright colors that fill the windows of store displays. The play of colors and patterns just lifts the mood up a notch. Playing with a little color myself, I paired these yellow skinny jeans with a delicate chiffon white top and added a navy trench coat over it for some color contrasting and to also keep me warm from the breezy winds of course.

  

When I saw this trench coat on the mannequin in Banana Republic, I fell in love. I loved the color contrast between the white and navy blue. It gave such a modern touch to such a classic trench. This trench coat can be worn in countless ways, to work with a shift dress or slacks, or even casually on the weekends with a pair of colored denim. When wearing trench coats or any coat with a belt, I normally like to tie a knot to the side. This cinches the waist and is also a lot easier to manage then actually belting it.

Readers - How do you wear your trench coat?


Coat : Banana Republic size XSP (here), Top : H&M size 2 (similar here)

Thank you so much for reading ! :)

  1. You're so cute Christine! I love this outfit a lot especially the H&M top. I'm not sure how I missed that trench but I really like how it looks on you. <3

    I like wearing trench coats as a light jacket from spring to early fall and hope to own one by Burberry one day.

  4. I love this! Such a great outfit - I normally will belt my trench. But sometimes I tie it and occasionally I will leave it open.
