Perfectly pretty spring trench coat {photo review}

My husband had to work yesterday.  After lounging around all morning watching instant Netflix (we just got it and now I don't know how I ever lived without it!), I decided I needed to get out of the house!  I went to Target desperately hoping to find these in my size, but it was a fail.  I did, however, find a really cute mint green cardigan on sale.  The color is so feminine and "springy" and I adore the lace detailing along the v-neck.  I also bought some cute new socks and a pair of navy tights.  I just can't leave good old Target without buying something.......
Next, I went across the street to Kohls because I haven't been there in forever.  I really wasn't looking for anything in particular, but I saw this trench coat hanging on a rack and was instantly drawn to it.  When I saw the pretty floral lining and the bow on the back, I knew it had to be mine!  The fit was perfect plus it was on sale, so it came home with me.  I'm really looking forward to wearing it this spring.  I've never had a trench coat before (gasp!), so I figure this is a really fun & feminine one to start off with.  What do you think?

Boots: Steven by Steve Madden Intyce boots in cognac - scored on sale for $85
Dress: tune in tomorrow for a new blog feature to find out (I'll give ya a hint: it's Anthropologie)

I'd like to start a new feature entitled "photo review" in which I'll review an item simply by giving you pictures.  So, here goes my first try at this.  I know I included a TON of pictures in this post.  I've truly found that a picture's worth a thousand words and the more pictures I see the more I can get a real feel for an item.  So, my goal is that all these photos will help you decide if this is something you're interested in checking out for yourself :)  Of course, if you have specific questions about it leave me a comment and I'd be happy to answer.

Hope my first photo review was helpful!!!  Have a great Monday everyone!


  1. cute trench! where did you find the boots on sale at?!

  2. I was lucky enough to get a great Cyber Monday deal on

  3. Just found your blog....cute trench! Just wondering what the color looks like in real life? It's such a pretty color in your pictures, but looks a bit brighter on the kohl's website. How bright is it? Is it a robin's egg blue color? Thanks :)


  4. I was going to describe it as a teal color. But yes, Robin's Egg Blue is very accurate. The pictures I took while wearing it are without a flash, so it is a little bit brighter in real life.

  5. Wow, I love the trench. I usually shop Kohl's for my daughter but it's usually a miss for me. I think I need to get that trench!
