Although I’m always happy to share my outfits, every once in a while comes a piece that I am absolutely giddy about sharing. I couldn’t wait to get this post live today because this jacket is everything a jacket should be for spring. It casually mixes my favorite silhouette (the trench) and my favorite pattern (stripes) like it’s saying ‘guys, it’s no big deal’ while silently nodding that yes, I’m a big deal. I mean, are you kidding me? Who is trying to send me a love letter from Madewell right now? Because I accept, but also I’m married so this will have to be purely platonic and material based. Dreams coming true over here in the form of a jacket. (That is how I know I’m in the right profession; the level of giddiness surrounding a trench jacket is embarrassingly high.)
I don’t even think I blinked from the time I saw / grabbed / checked out with this jacket. I went into full on Black Friday mode. Some people have electronics, I have striped trench jackets. And I knew exactly what I would pair with this jacket for my first act: my floral blouse. A trusty floral blouse and a surprisingly easy striped trench makes the perfect almost March outfit. I can already tell this is going to be a fabulous (and striped) spring.
