Trenches and Heels


Hope everyone had a happy Valentine’s Day!

Yesterday was the warmest it’s been in ages here in Pittsburgh, and as I left my apartment to go to my first class dressed in my winter coat, this thought popped into my head: “I wish I was wearing an amazing trench coat right now instead!”

It’s finally getting to that point in the year where it’s not warm enough to go coat-less quite yet, but warm enough to ditch the peacoats and puffy jackets. With the frequent chance of rain that comes with the next few months, a trench coat is the perfect completion to early spring outfits. One thing I love about trench coats is that their longer length directs the eye downwards towards your shoes! With that in mind, I’ve come up with some trench coat and shoe pairings, complemented with a Zoya nail polish color I would wear with it, due to my recent obsession with painting my nails every few days since I got my free polishes! :P

{Classic: AK Anne Klein Ruffled Collar Trench Coat in Mushroom, Lulu’s Not Rated Frilled Black Polka Dot Bow Toe Platform Slingbacks, Zoya Stella}

{Sexy: Steve Madden Double Breasted Zipper Trench Coat in Moss, Aldo Vanyo in Midnight Black (only $38.49!), Zoya Austine}

{Girlie: LC Lauren Conrad Trench Coat (also seen here), Candie’s Taken Peep-Toe Platforms in Blush, Zoya Perrie}

{Glamorous: Dolce & Gabanna Double Breasted Trench Coat in Red, Rock & Republic Habanero Spectator Pumps, Zoya Snow White}

{Cute: AK Anne Klein Short Trench Coat in Lemongrass, Steve Madden Envyy in Blue Suede, Zoya Tart}

{Chic: Lauren by Ralph Lauren Emery Belted Trench in Cherie Pink, Jeffrey Campbell Lexie Ivory and Camel Stacked Heel Pumps, Zoya Kali}

Which of these looks would you like to wear this spring?

Have a great day!
