Dress: Nordstrom (similar). Trench coat: Ellen Tracy via Nordstrom (very similar). Shoes: Kohl's (similar). Clutch: Gap (similar). Sunglasses: Target (very similar). 
Looking at these pictures I'm realizing that I need to go get the sleeves of this coat hemmed­čśé Oh well, let's talk about this coat. First I need to tell you a story about my current trench coat. I bought it just before I studied abroad in London circa 2013. Makes sense, right? Well it made so much sense that I ended up wearing it literally every single day that I was there and pretty much hated it by the time I got home because I'd over worn it. Fast forward to 2016 and I still have the same trench coat. It's kind of falling apart and I still harbor some of that hate from 2013. I've been thinking it was time to upgrade for about a year now, but couldn't find something I loved until I came across this faux suede trench coat. Now I know what you're thinking: that doesn't make sense, isn't it supposed to be waterproof? Well normally I would be right there with you, but I do live in California where it hardly ever rains, so I think I can swing it! I really love the unexpectedness of such a classic piece in a different material. I was worried it would look too '70's or kind of creepy, but it's perfect!

I hope your week is going well! Be sure to stop by on Friday as I'll be sharing my Nordstrom Anniversary sale picks (and some fitting tips on the items I bought)!
