Introducing the first coat I've ever blogged about, plus the first trench coat I've ever owned. But this little beauty is no ordinary trench coat and I was so excited to add it to my closet this past summer. The leather keeps it modern and fresh while the khaki and structured silhouette keep it grounded and classic.
For underneath my jacket, I decided to stick with the leather theme and wear a sleek black dress that boasts a major edge.
Anything leather is my new favorite.
The strategic leather detailing on my jacket as well as on my dress brings both pieces together in an effortless and chic way.
These charcoal pearl earrings have ladylike charm combined with a dark edge. My dusky red lip is the perfect accompaniment.
This metallic Marc Jacobs watch was one of my Christmas presents from this past week. The silver coating and shimmery band is so of-the-moment that I can't wait to pair it with more edgy looks.
This hummingbird bracelet by Alex & Ani was another gift I received on Christmas. It represents awakening, healing, and eternity. Hummingbird's wings flutter in the pattern of an infinity symbol, which means they're associated with continuity and persistence. What a fantastic emblem of delicateness and strength!

With a stunning coat like this, who cares how chilly it is outside? I just love throwing on this trench and looking polished and stylish no matter what I have on underneath. It's true what they say, a fantastic coat truly makes your wardrobe!
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas - my family and I certainly did! But guess what? The holidays aren't over yet. There's still New Year's Eve and day to look forward to...which means there's still more holiday outfit planning to come!
