Casual Striped Tee + Busy Weekends

casual weekend look

I will be the first to admit that I’ve been kind of a bad blogger. Blogging isn’t easy, and neither is trying to balance it with everything else in life. The past few weekends have been busy with house projects, and I got behind on my content planning.

First of all, I got an amazing deal on this trench coat. I think it was 50% off. At the time, I was finishing college and $60 was a lot of money for me to spend on anything, even a coat.

A trench coat is one of those timeless pieces I believe should be in everyone’s wardrobe. Women and men alike, really. A trench coat is perfect to wear in the spring, and also during fall.
