In terms of weather, I’ve felt like I’ve been experiencing the month of May not December, but that has provided the perfect opportunity to grab for shorts than jeans. It’s a little too breezy for a complete Spring look, so a sweater was a must. As fashion begins to transition from winter to spring, I’ve noticed trench coats featured in a some January editorials. Other places on the globe may not be able to resort to trench coats, yet, but that’s the perk of California in winter; you get to enjoy the warm-weather pieces a bit earlier than most, except when Fall/Winter rolls around, that’s another story. I haven’t worn my Trench in a bit and those editorials inspired me to pull it out. I’ve had this one for a couple years. It was a gift from my Dad on one of his yearly spending sprees at Brook’s Brothers, if that’s a bit pricey there are so many less pricy alternatives available too. My first trench was purchased at Forever 21 and another I picked up at the Goodwill. I think they’re a definite must in everyones closet, both male and female.
