Happy September lovelies!
With a last minute business trip for the hubby came an amazing opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Because of the cool Seattle temps and the impending fall season (yay!), I decided to showcase my favorite autumn wardrobe staple...the classic trench coat!
outfit details: Saks Fifth Avenue dress [new, $14], The Limited trench coat [new, gift], H&M tie up flats [new, $20], Rebecca Minkoff cross body bag [new, $50], Tiffany & Co heart studs [new, gift], Rayban aviators [new, $90]
This jacket has definitely been through it all! My mom gave it to me as a Christmas gift in my late teens, and I have worn it religiously ever since! (what you can't see in these pics is a button hanging by a thread) I hope to one day upgrade to a Burberry trench, but I don't think this jacket will ever part with my closet. As you can see from the first pic, I love to tie it in a bow from behind. It's a cute detail, and less fuss when wearing. Also... it makes me feel like I'm from Gossip Girl ok. Not going to lie.
I've shared this dress on IG (@fancyfreeblog), and actually found this Saks steal at their discount store, off 5th. It is incredibly comfy, and has the most beautiful design on the back (keep scrolling for more pics).
You've seen these shoes here. What a great buy these were! Even though I got them on sale from H&M, they have held up so well, even through the many miles I walked around Seattle!
See what I mean about the back of this dress?? I always wear a pony to show it off.
So excited to share this fall-inspired (almost there!) wardrobe staple and a part of our Seattle adventure with you! To see more of my day to day at home and on vacation, follow along on IG and snapchat (slaukenmann)! Anything you would like to see more of in my posts? Definitely leave a comment below and let me know!
Live for luxury? No trust fund, no problem!
