Sometimes, when you least expect it, you find exactly what you need. Nothing about buying a trench coat appealed to me. They were always so oversized, weirdly structured, or looked funny. With a large variety of outerwear, it's surprising that I do not own such a classic coat. That is until I stumbled upon this one at Forever 21, while perusing crop tops ( What can I say? They are my weakness...). This trench is comfortable, can easily be stuffed in a tote bag ( I know, so low maintenance), and looks much more luxe than it really is. It's a dark shade of blue, very convenient when you're always spilling coffee on yourself, and there are no shiny buckles or flashy extra details. I was hooked. It's exactly what I needed for this transitional weather. I've been wearing this trench every day since, just because it's such an easy way to look put together when I am rushing out the door in the morning. I paired this with my favorite new jumpsuit, the culottes version. Super comfy, easy to wear, and simple.
