Trendy Trench

I just purchased my first trench coat this winter.  I really love it (especially the detachable quilted liner), and it makes me feel pulled together even with jeans and a sweater on.  Then I started to notice the sleeveless trench coat/vest make its way into stores.  I doubted the practicality of something like this, especially in New England, but I have to say I've come around!  It's a really cool, chic layering piece that feels laid back, but also has that classic appeal.  What do you think?

This color is a no brainer, and I like the 4 pockets.
ASOS $32

Open-toe Bootie Beauties

I'm totally dreaming here...while it's freezing cold in New England...of open toe shoes. I neglect my little toes in these months because honestly, who would notice in this weather?  But the fact is, spring fashion is here, and if I don't pounce on some of these trends while they are in stock, I'm out of luck!

I was watching QVC recently (yes, in those mindless moments when this shopper needs to decompress, I watch it!), and they were featuring these suede open toe booties in a neutral taupe color.  So easy to wear with both dresses and pants, and clearly comfortable.  Hence launched my internet research for which pairs would need to find a home in my closet.  (The ones on QVC sold out in a matter of minutes (!) which was fascinating because who knew so many people shop like that!)

Perforated, tan, stacked heel.  Perfection!
Vince Camuto "Lavette" $119.95
That taupe suede- yes!
