Happy first day of fall!

Last weekend was so blustery, it felt just like fall feels in Seattle.  Of course my hair was a mess, but I love that kind of weather.  Perfect reason to get bundled up for an afternoon outing or stay in and curl up with a cup of cocoa and your favorite book.  Craig and I went on a little Saturday morning date and ran a few errands downtown; I thought it was the perfect opportunity to take my new black trench coat for a test drive.

I’ve been looking for the perfect black trench coat for what feels like forever and I finally found one!  When you’re petite it can be really tricky to find coats and jackets that work, especially in the arms and shoulder area (ug, such a pain!).  I have a few go-to brands for petite jackets.  J.Crew, Loft, Anthro, and ASOS are my favorites.  I’ve also had good luck with Banana Republic’s petites.  I found this pretty one at ASOS and I love it.  It’s the perfect weight, comes in petites, doesn’t wrinkle easy and it was a great price at just under $100.  Trench coats are a great option for the pacific northwest since it’s chilly a lot but not often super cold here. I added a khaki trench to my closet earlier this year, and I’m so glad I finally found a great black one.

On Saturday I paired it with this cute drop waist peplum top from Loft (obsessed), my favorite leopard flats (which are back in stock again!) and my Tory Burch bag.  I go through stages where I kind of forget about pulling out my leopard shoes and then I remember that they are such a fun pop to any outfit. I even bought Hannah a pair this season… Also, it took me a long time to invest in a really great cognac bag and now I’m like, what was I thinking waiting so long?  I use this bag almost everyday and it goes with just about everything.

How are you spending the first day of fall?  I’m making homemade chili tonight and I’m going to enjoy our crisp sunny weather!
