Working Woman: Khaki Trench & Brights




Tops: J. Crew Factory Camp Shirt, Banana Republic Factory Trench
Bottom: J. Crew Factory No. 2 Pencil Skirt
Shoes: Ann Taylor Perfect Leather Pumps

Happy Valentine’s Day! I have been wearing this Banana Republic Trench everywhere! Not only is it lightweight, it is very warm and serves as a great raincoat. Houston has been cloudy with rain for the past several weeks. We thoroughly need some rain since we are still in a drought.

With cloudy skies, it’s been hard to dress upbeat and fun. So for Valentine’s Day, I want to wear something new and bright. My extremely loud pink J. Crew Pencil Skirt combined with a J. Crew Camp skirt are what I was looking for. I do like the color combo.

I paired the outfit with my Ann Taylor Perfect Leather pumps in Black, but I wish I had found a different color. I have black shoes for boots, pumps, sandals, and flats. I need a variation.

What color shoes should I purchase for this outfit? Pink, Red, what?

Type F – The Trench Coat

Great tips for Petite Girls and Curvy Girls in this video on how to wear a Trench Coat.

Petite Girls – Wear Straight trenches rather than flared ones to look taller

Curvy Gals – Get a tailor to cinch the trench at the waist to flatter your figure.

I love Tyra. She keeps it straight.
