Last February, when we found out we were moving to Chicago, I was beyond thrilled And after about a week of nonstop happy dances, I decided I needed to prepare my closet for the big move. I started thinking about some of the staples I would need to survive in a city that experiences four seasons (particularly the cold ones.) At the very top of that list, was the much needed trench coat. So for two solid months, I looked and looked, eventually finding this beautiful Michael Kors trench coat. It was love at first sight, so much so that even Matt said, "you have to get that." So from April till May, it sat in my closet in Texas, ready for its big move. And then once it made the move to Chicago, it hung in the closet, waiting for the perfect rainy day debut. And no day was better for that than this past Saturday. Matt and I spent the day exploring the city with his sister and her family, and the weather was overcast, chilly, and rainy for most of the day. Normally not my idea of great weather, but for a trench coat debut...perfect. Dear readers, please meet my new (and long awaited) BFF...
Trench: Michael Kors
Jeans: J.Crew skinnies
Scarf: the Limited
Bag: Urban Outfitters
For now, I'm enjoying the coat as is, but I'm looking forward to experimenting with the belt, changing it out for wide leather belts and vintage scarves.
And if a new BFF isn't enough, I've got a great man beside me, and a fabulous city behind me!
I'll post a full recap of our weekend with Matt's sister and her family after I look through all the pictures (we had a blast and took enough pics to prove it lol), but I couldn't resist posting these and introducing you to my new BFF, Trench. What's your newest closet crush?
