Finish each day and be done with it

Shipley & Halmos trench coat, Dries Van Noten python heel booties, Balenciaga clutch

This is the coat I wore over my outfit in the post I wrote earlier this week about meeting the designers of Shipley & Halmos. I've been on a hunt for the perfect trench and was close to buying this one from Rag & Bone but I also wanted some variance on the classic look. I got this S&H trench just in time for fall, and liked the flared skirt, elbow patch details, and the mini cape in the back that wraps around to tie in the front, but it wasn't until I asked for my boyfriend's opinion when he pointed out the buttons down the back that I was completely sold.

Anyway, it's the boy's birthday and I have one long weekend of festivities planned. Hope you all have a fun weekend too!

  15. I love your trench. The little buttons in the back are a great detail/twist on a classic! I'm still lusting over a burberry trench. Trenches are a necessity in the Seattle weather right? At least that's what I keep telling myself to justify the purchase :)
