The Essential Ingredient For You Spring Wardrobe

When you are a Midwest blogger, you just have to work with the weather you get. I found the silver lining in this weekend’s windstorm if mother nature saw fit to provide me with a diva fan who I am to complain ( Beyonce pays good money for her fan, and I got one for free!). Spring is in full effect, and I could not wait to pull out my lightweight trench from Boohoo.com.

I love this trench because it is lighter than a traditional trench coat and can be worn as a duster. When pulling together separates always use the rule of three shirt, pants, and a wildcard item. The wildcard can be a blazer, jacket, sweater, or a scarf. The third piece adds dimension and polish. I like to think the third piece creates upscale casual when you receive a compliment you’ll be able to say “Oh, I just threw this on.” Honestly, once you begin to work the wildcard piece into your routine, it will be effortless.

All body types need a trench coat for spring. It’s the perfect accompaniment to every outfit a trench is like seasoning salt you put it on everything . You can throw a trench coat over almost any outfit, and it enhances the look immediately. If you are out running errands adding a trench to your t-shirt and jeans look elevates your casual uniform and instantly makes you look put together.

    1. Yes, I know what you mean! I love mixing traditional suiting components that have deconstructed lines and soft fabrics that still have shape to them and then pairing that look with lady like accessories.

      1. I’ve spent too many years in skinny jeans. Theres a time and a place for them, but it’s so much more sexy to go more relaxed, theres something magical about playing hide and seek.

  1. HA! You are not kidding about that Midwest weather hunty! Mother Nature hated my blog last year! She jacked up so many of my outside shoots! Love this post! I have a similar lightweight trench from Charlotte Russe that I bought last year. I never wore it! You are going to make me go find it!

    1. LOL… I was having a total meltdown because it looked like it was going to rain along with the wind. The wind was blowing so hard I had no choice but to just work with it!! LOL
