Boy, I bought this sleeveless trench coat dress about a month and a half ago. I have been wanting to wear it, but I needed some decent weather (and also some idea of what to wear underneath the trench coat). Today, as I was trying on a million different clothes, deciding what to wear, I came across this outfit!
First off, the sleeveless trench coat is from White House Black Market. I bought this, on sale, after months of looking at it online. I found a cute trench coat outfit on Pinterest, (let’s be real, most of my inspiration is from Pinterest), and then came across this piece of clothing while browsing the web (…oh, how online shopping can be dangerous…). I decided to stop in the store one day, and this trench coat was on sale for $50.00…let’s be real, that is a lot of money for what I normally buy, but it was originally $170.00! I also had a $50.00 off a $100.00 purchase, so let’s be real, I had to spend the $100.00 worth of clothing, to get $50.00 off, I just couldn’t pass up this coupon. I shopped exclusively in the clearance section, just so I felt I was getting a better deal. I bought this trench coat, and two sweaters for a total of $63.00 after using the coupon. I felt this was one of the best deals that I have come across. First of all, White House Black Market has top of the line items, but one of my sweaters did not even cost that much originally! Phew….that shopping trip was awesome!
Well since the weather finally cooperated today, I decided that I was going to wear the sleeveless trench coat, then I needed to decide what to wear underneath it. Ultimately, sometime in the summer, I could button it up, and just wear it as a dress, but hey, it’s May in Michigan, it’s not that nice, yet. So I put on a pair of black leggings. I am sad to say that they are not fleece or fur leggings, because it is way too nice out now for them. I paired simple, black leggings from Target for my bottom half.
I had a few different ideas for my top. I tried on a black, long sleeve top, a white button down, but ultimately decided on a short sleeve, flowy, white shirt, that I purchased from Amazon.com. This top is super comfortable, and I felt made a great addition to my outfit.
As for accessories, I wore a layered necklace from Charming Charlie’s. Search results for layered necklaces can be found here. My shoes are from Target. These black flats are very comfortable, and fashionable. I love that the inside of the shoes have openings, I feel that I am more barefoot (I would ideally love to be barefoot all the time, but it’s just not acceptable), and does not feel as binding, as some shoes can feel. I also paired Too Faced’s LA CRÈME lipstick in Honey Bear with my outfit.
