the trench coat

Here and there, I’ve added personal style posts. My goal this year is to increase the number.  I’m not a stylist. I’m not a fashion insider. I just love style. And when I say style, I mean anything that you want it to be. What makes you feel good. What fits your lifestyle. What fits your body. I like to take ideas from magazines and add my practical “but I live in the real world” spin on it. A trench coat is a must-have for every closet. 

As much as I yearn to wear Jeffery Campbell’s (the full on glitter ones), it’s not the kind of thing I can get into right now. I totally would but that darn “mom voice” always creeps in asking me if it’s really wearable for everyday. I’m always seeking the art show-meets-mom balance. Day to night finds. The mix of highs and lows. A great sale. No fuss. But always, always chic. At the end of the day, whether it’s casual or evening attire, it must be chic and it must classic. That’s my thing. What’s yours?

  1. I love classic trench coats. They’re such a staple piece in any great wardrobe. You look fab in that 3rd image! Super bonita. For me, it always has to be classy and chic. Sometime, though very infrequent, trendy…. always chic!

  2. I really like it, Rachel! It’s unique but chic.

    My style I haven’t quite figured out yet. Mostly I wear jeans and T-shirts, but I feel restricted in expressing myself through fashion because of my weight. What I love doesn’t necessarily work for me. The one celebrity I could point to and say that I love 90% of what she wears, (including accessories, makeup and hairstyles), would be Salma Hayek – so what “style” does she fall under?

    Anyway, I’m trying to get healthier and being able to figure out my style is definitely on the list of motivators!

    Looking forward to more posts like this from you!
