art of the trench

This outfit is from a couple days ago. It was a spectacular day. It felt exactly how a spring day should feel. The morning was a tad chilly but the day proved be warm with a slight breeze. The sun shone all day, and I could hardly sit still inside. I think I started suffering from a case of spring fever.
This Burberry trench coat is the most expensive article of clothing that I own, but it is probably the best investment I have ever made. It's simply beautiful in every single way. There is even a liner that can be added when the weather is colder, which is why I wore this trench coat from September to late December, and now I've been wearing it since late February. The length is perfect so it goes with absolutely anything that I wear, and there is even a wonderful hood, which I have detached for the moment. I can't describe in words how much I love this trench coat. Definitely something that will last me a long time.
I discovered these Ray Ban sunglasses in my house a little while ago and after pondering for approximately a week about whether or not I should wear them, I finally took the chance. They really stick out in real life, and kind of remind me of alien eyes, which is why I call them my alien glasses. I definitely got some looks when I wore them.
Anyways, I hope you all had a wonderful start to the week. I'll have a little surprise in my next post, nothing major, but a surprise nonetheless.

Ps. Is anyone else excited to see The Runaways movie? I absolutely love Joan Jett, and The Runaways, so I'm really really happy that they're getting all this recognition.
