If I'm following trends correctly, this spring trench coats are quit 'in'. For a while I'd been crushing over this style of coat (especially these: #1, #2, #3), and since my previous spring coat was bought in 6th grade and I was busting out of it, I casually mentioned the idea of a trench coat for spring to my mom and to keep her eyes peeled.
Coat: second hand store. VERY similar one here (even in similar color!) | Skinny Jeans DIY | Sandals: Target (last year)
To my pleasant surprise, the day after I mentioned a trench coat to her I came home from school and found this baby hanging in the closet. I was floored. I loooved it and the color. I never imagined that a dandelion yellow would look decent against my majorly pale skin tone. But, it proved me wrong and now I wear it during 80˚ weather cause I love it that much. To top things off this coat was from a 2nd hand store, so it was a fraction of the cost of a new coat (but still in steller shape). BRILLIANT.
Like I said, I wear this in 80˚ weather. Yes, I'm not lying I did that one day, and decided that that idea was for the birds.
The thing is this year Michigan weather was crazy and brushed over spring. We went from winter to summer with a transition of 3 days of spring. Cah-razy. So unfortunately, unless I get a few cool days in May, it looks like I'll have to wait till September to rock this coat in public again. But that's ok. It gives me something to look forward to :).
One of my favorite features to my yellow trench would have to be the pleated back. LEERVE.
So what do ya say? Do you have a certain piece of spring, (or summer) clothing that you really have your eyes on? I'd love to hear!
