Closet staple: The Classic Trench

trench coat for spring

I tell you, so many of my good closet staple items are from the era we lived in Boston. The coats I invested in while we lived there have not only remained in my closet, but are still frequently worn - years later. I can proudly say I'm always looking for the best deals when it comes to shopping in every category - clothing included. But what I have come to learn is that making the wise choice to invest a little more money into a good, functional item is so worth it! This trench coat is now a few years old - but is pretty timeless and I know I can get years and years of wear out of it! What is great about the trench is that I have found it to work nicely in both fall AND spring.

I have really been embracing the menswear-inspired styles lately (shoutout to all the millions of pairs of loafers and mules in my closet!) I paired this coat with an oversized button down and cute loafers and it was perfect for a little transitional winter/spring Saturday brunch with friends. OK, while were on the topic of weekends and brunch.. How is it Monday again already? Never enough weekends and always too many Mondays.
