Spring in Chicago can be a real emotional roller coaster. One day is sunny and 70 and the other you can expect feet of snow. With the frequent change in weather, I think an absolute Spring closet must have is a classic trench coat.
I’ve owned a number of trench coats over the years, many of which I have had in my closet for years. A few weeks back during the Banana Republic Friends & Family Sale, I made the decision to invest in another classic trench coat, this time, in a slightly shorter length.
What I love about this trench coat over other’s I’ve owned in the past is 1). the material is made with a soft cotton material, but with a soft coating that will easily repel water when it rains 2). it comes with a fantastic detachable lining for cooler temperatures. It’s unlike any other and does not give it a ‘bulky’ feel. I am so excited I made the decision to invest in another.
Trech coats can often times be pricey, no? With the current sale running at Banana Republic, the now 40% off makes it a great time to buy! Plus, if you’re a Gap, Banana or Old Navy card holder, you can save an additional 10% off your purchase. What are you waiting for? Head there now!
Oh, I forgot to mention a few other important items. The coat comes in misses, petites and tall – perfect for any body shape. I initially purchased the jacket in a misses XS since it had the liner, however, I ended up exchanging it for a petite XS as I found it ran just a tad larger than most of my Banana Republic coats. Just a heads up. Now, let’s chat about this amazing gingham off the shoulder top – now also 40% off!

I mentioned in last week’s off the shoulder top craze post (seriously, definitely check it out as there are some really great tops starting as inexpensive as $15. Go!) that you’d be seeing a lot of the off the shoulder trend here on the blog. It might be my favorite at the moment. This gingham off the shoulder is no exception, y’all. I chose to wear with jeans this weekend, but this it will be equally chic with a great white skit, or even slacks.
Y’all know how much I love color so I couldn’t resist pairing the top with a good pop of red. Did I mention this top will be so cute, too, over the July 4th holiday? I can’t wait to style it 100 new ways this Spring and Summer. It’s simply irresistible.
