Raindrops on trench coats and whiskers on kittens…

Okay fine so that’s not how the song goes. So I spent the weekend in DC celebrating my dear friend’s wedding. I love weddings so much. The pastor said a wise thing that made me think: all couples break one promise in their first year of marriage and that is the promise to cherish. She said that the promise to love is easy, but the promise to keep something you cherish shiny and special takes work. It is hard to cherish someone when you come home from a long day of work and you’re hangry, or when he/she puts dirty dishes in the dishwasher with the clean dishes. But as all my readers who have been married for many years could probably attest – it takes effort that is worth the extra attention.
Once all these crazy April weather moments are over, I hope you’ll start thinking about dusting off your good old trusty trench coat. A trench coat is a must-have for spring. I picked this pink one out last year (you can see how I wore it here in a sort of strawberry-banana way) and I wear it every chance I get.
There’s something about a trench coat that says “hey I’m a professional fashionista because I have coats for all occasions.” The smart length, the flattering tie at the waist, and the sharp lapel are all things I love about the trench silhouette. If you don’t have a trench yet – worry not! I’ve got you covered, as I linked some coats I found at all price points.
Save – Trench Coats Under $50
Spend – Trench Coats Under $100
Splurge – Trench Coats over $100
I hope you guys have a wonderful start to your week!
My favorite look from last week was my girl Rachael from Threads for Thomas.
I’ve been trying to stay motivated to work out and eat healthy, and for me workout wear brings an unsaid enthusiasm. Seeing Rachael’s cute two piece workout set made me feel so inspired to dress cute for my workouts.
