Trench Coats & Texas

Instead of starting with long introductions I'm gonna jump right in and simply gonna start doing what I want to do - write about fashion.

Spring Obsession Number 1: Trench Coats

It's the beginning of spring, and I would lie if I'd say that shopping for new spring clothes isn't my fave thing about the season. On top of the list? Trench coats! After spending the long winter bundled up in thick down jackets, nothing says spring than throwing on a fun light trenchcoat. 

And this year I'm all about shiny ruffles. My trench of choice? Anthropologie's Engla Trench and the Femme Trench Jacket:
I ordered the Engla a week ago and I've already fallen in love with much that I'm definitely considering to also get the Femme Trench. The best part? Both are currently on sale.

I am usually not a fan of materials that feel too fancy (my prom dress wasn't as shiny as the Engla) but there's something so unique about this coat that I can embrace and love it's shiny texture. And by wearing it with navy skinny jeans, an old jeans shirt and simple flats it becomes super casual.
Shirt: Vintage, Jeans: H&M. Shoes: Nature Breeze

Spring Obsession Number 2: Nailpolish!

Usually my go-to colors are navy, deep red or pink. And I thought I'd never understand the appeal of brownish and nude colors (and I still don't get why people love Chanel's looks like dirt, there I said it) ...Until I laid my eyes upon OPI's Texas collection: 

I went to my fave makeup store to check out all the colors, and being me I was most excited about the amazing pink shades of the collection. While I was pondering whether to buy "Guy Meets Gal-veston" or "Big Hair Big Nails" my mom pointed out a rather boring shade of beige - San Tan-tonio. And long story short this color has been on my nails for 3 weeks straight now, and I don't think I ever want to wear another nailpolish again. It's classy yet unique, gorgeous, and goes with everything - and the name makes me laugh. It's a win.
