My Dream Trench Coat


This past weekend I finally got the trench coat of my dreams! Seriously, I've been looking for the perfect trench since I was 12! Anyway, a couple months ago I saw this one hanging in the window at Anthropologie. I loved it right away, but couldn't bring myself to go in and try it on because I knew it was expensive. Almost everyday I had to drive by that window to get where ever I was going. It even got to the point that the lady I work with would say, there's your trench Quincy, lol! This past Saturday Jonny asked if I'd like to go look around at Anthropologie. (I have a cute hubby) He knows I like to wander there for inspiration. I headed back to the sale section and guess what was there? My trench coat, on sale, in my size and it was the last one left! How could I leave without it!? As far as I'm concerned it was meant to be. I don't think I'll ever take this coat off.

So, that's the story of my dream trench coat. Slightly silly, but it's true.
Also, Happy Halloween! I'm not dressing up this year, but in my new coat I kinda feel like a modern day Audrey Hepburn.. and who wouldn't want that!? xo

I'm also in love with your coat. I've never been to an Anthropologie. Did you know that Giada De Laurentiis' husband is a designer for them? Or something?
