Week O’Nautical – Nautical Stripes on Stripes

Week O’Nautical can almost taste the long weekend… or maybe its those red white and blue sweet treats we enjoyed today.  Regardless, nautical stripes on stripes were in order today!  Nautical striped t-shirt dress with some striped heels all tied together with some nautical accents and the best lightweight soft trench!

A classic trench coat is the perfect layering piece for chilly spring mornings intro work.  For spring a soft trench is not only on trend but the lighter design makes it ideal.  I just love this mark. Soft Touch Trench, it was such a great investment piece.

Navy and white always look great paired with sea-worth turquoise and coral, which is why I added those nautical accents in my fav color pairing.  And those platform sandals are so statement making they might not be considered an accent!

What Coat To Wear With A LBD

What Coat To Wear With A LBD

Punxsutawney Phil promised an early spring so it’s time to lighten things up!  Lighten up your look, lighten up your load with spring cleaning and lighten up your coat!  A spring coat is an absolute must have because even those warmer sunny days still have that spring chill.  A constant problem I find is finding the right spring coat to wear with work wear, dresses and more importantly my LBD.  I found the perfect solution with this mark. Soft Touch Trench Coat.

First, a little on the soft trench.  If you’ve noticed pretty much every cool girl on IG, pinterest, bloggers, etc. have a similar trench coat.  What makes it soft is it is not a constructed structured trench coat, it’s a fluid fabric that just flows with it’s loose shape.  If you’re a fan of the Express Portofino shirts think that only thicker.  Seriously, just hop on pinterest, you’ll see all the cool girls in them.  They wear them with jeans and a tee, over shorts, tanks and booties or over a really cute jumpsuit or romper.  I’ve been obsessing over this all white look Khloe Kardashian wore with a soft trench.

What I love about this mark. Soft Touch Trench is that it’s a classic trench coat color so it will go with everything and still look sophisticated even though it’s a loose shape.  In addition, the sleeves are convertible so that is just PERFECT as a top coat layer.  It looks more like part of your outfit then like you’re wearing a coat.  That why it’s the perfect coat for a little black dress.

Over a little black dress the mark. Soft Touch Trench really is the perfect solution for day or night, work or play, casual or glam.  Just like a little black dress it’s super versatile, functional and sophisticated.  I could not be more pleased that I bit the bullet and got this jacket.  At first the price had me, but then I started looking at other options in soft trenches and realized that for $65 it’s actually a really good price for the quality.  PLUS you can pair it with a 20% off promo (AVONFB60 at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger) and it makes it so worth it!
