Last November I made, hands down, the best purchase I have ever made in my life. I’m talking investing in something that I am really getting my money’s worth for. Want to take a guess *cough cough* clue in title *cough cough* well if you read trench coat congrats, woo, you read the title! Hehe sorry for the sass I couldn’t help myself.
My trench coat is by far my most worn item in my wardrobe and probably one of my favorite pieces. No buyer’s remorse here. I got this from Nordstrom in November in anticipation of my New York trip later that month. The brand is Calvin Klein and I purchased it for a total of $170.00 tax and all, I felt like that was a really decent price for the quality of it and honestly none of that money has gone to waste with the amount of use I have gotten out of it.
There are so many reasons why it has become one of the most loved pieces in my wardrobe. First off, I can pair it with any outfit to add instant style. For example, sweaty Allie after yoga in leggings, a plain T-shirt, and nikes… add the trench coat and BAM it becomes a “ooo Allie is working on her fitness and is looking good” *wink* kind of vibe. This really came in handy during my New York trip, of course I had cute outfits but they were just sweaters because it was November. The trench coat not only added extra warmth (due to the fleece lining on the inside) but as I said earlier, it just adds an extra level of chic to everything and thus making the whole process of having a cute outfit and wearing the trench coat effortless! It’s just a win-win no matter what. Also I know what you’re thinking “a trench coat is such a classic fashion item that will never go out of style yay Allie!” I know right? That just makes this even better!
One day I dream of having a Burberry trench coat, honestly people the struggle is real. Ever since I started falling in love with my trench coat and noticing how much I wear it, the desires for a Burberry one have only gotten stronger. I’ve been trying to find ways to justify buying one. I’m a quality over quantity person anyways and I know that if I did get a Burberry trench coat it would last me for years and years. Most likely I’ll end up buying one, but I would definitely prefer to find it in the sale as I’m pretty good about finding great designer sales. I mean, did I tell you about the time I recently purchased Kate Spade high heels that were originally $350.00 and I got them for only $100.00 AFTER TAX!!! No? Maybe for another time then…
If you couldn’t tell I’m pretty much head over heels for my trench coat and I have to resist the urge to wear it every single day. It’s safe to say that this will forever be a staple item in my wardrobe. Let me know what your favorite staple piece of your wardrobe is or if you share the same love for trench coats as I do!
