The Perfect Trench Coat | Spring Style Staple

Our weather has been downright crazy.  85 degrees one day and 40 degrees the next morning…sometimes both temperatures in the same day!  A classic trench coat is how I am keeping from going crazy and being unprepared for the weather.  I have searched for the perfect trench for several years.  Yes, they seem to be everywhere but finding the perfect fit at a reasonable price has been a struggle for me.

At 5′ 2″, I’m technically petite but really only purchase petites in some jeans or a few dresses.  Coats don’t always come in petite sizes and the sleeves are way too long!  Maybe I just have petite arms! Ha!

This petite Belted Mac trench fits me perfectly in the XS petite.  This trench coat also comes in tall and regular sizing as well.  I also love the color.  Not too tan.  Not too dark.  Just goldilocks right.  This style also comes in a gorgeous soft petal pink color that is such a trend right now.  What I also love about this trench is the material.  It is almost an oil cloth quality that will repel water.  I had one trench that did not do it’s job and I was damp.  That won’t be the case with this one.  Practical and pretty makes for the perfect trench coat.

A trench is also a great way to look pulled together even when you aren’t.  This navy suede trench is not for a rainy day but what a wow statement with white jeans on a spring day.  This gray eyelet trench is equally as pretty.  This iconic style with back detail and epaulette details on shoulders is great in black and could go day to night. If a drapey trench is on your list, this one is really pretty.  Several of these are on sale through today.

Be sure to subscribe to the newsletter so that you can receive something special really soon!  I’ll be so excited to finally share it with you.

Hope you have a great week!

Creating the Habit of Exercise + Activewear Favorites

Creating the Habit of Exercise + Activewear Favorites

One of the ways I am taking advantage of the forced pause is creating the habit of exercise for myself. I don’t talk about exercise much on AWL because, well, I don’t usually do it. But that is changing!






My Work From Home Style

My Work From Home Style

Because I’ve worked from home for 24 years, either freelancing PR, event planning, volunteering or blogging, WFH or Work From Home attire is not new to me.  While there are days I stay in workout clothes, I get much accomplished when I get dressed for the day!
