My husband said, after our last trip to NYC in June. I just saw this girl wearing the coolest trench. I asked him later what it looked like and he said it was distressed denim.

That night in our hotel, I searched high and low for one. Believe me, it wasn’t easy. I finally found one on the Barney’s site from NSF. I now found close to the exact HERE. I want to think its the most versatile item in my closet right now!

Goes with everything and very flattering. I mean, anything belted is flattering! What do you think?

We were in NY this summer and I saw a girl wearing this gorgeous trench. Talk about travel as inspiration. And many of you know already how much I love streetstyle in big cities like New York. Like a good stylist, I went online right away looking for the perfect “distressed” and worn denim trench.Just like the one I saw on the chic girl in SOHO. I’m happy to report I found it. However kicking myself for taking so long to post these images that the before mentioned trench is sold out. I however did find one similar for you. I love it paired with denim shorts and cowboy boots or white denim and a white crop top. Either works for a chic on the go look. Which is your favorite?

Nike’s on Repeat

by Shalice Noel

So many of you asked about this outfit after I posted it on social this week. I love mixing high and low, casual and sophisticated. As for outfit details, my Nike’s are $90, worn with a trench, cropped jeans and a baseball cap.

It’s been hard getting back into the saddle of my week since getting back from Chicago, school variety shows, homework and everything in between is taking up my time. One of my favorite style savers lately is a silky trench! I’m obsessed. It works out great with the chilly weather we’ve been having. Happy cloudy Wednesday from SoCal! I also talk about trenches in the Mother’s Day guide if you missed it.

As a busy mom, I tend to keep things pretty simple because my life is anything but. Lots of “oops” happen when you are traveling with kids, and the way to prepare for that is to simplify. First off, in order of importance, pack blankies and snacks. Do not forget either or there will be general mayhem. For you, pack basics, NOT outfits. Of course, if you’re packing for a specific occasion that makes sense, but four days in Sedona mandates a swimsuit, tees, cut-offs, sneakers, and a great book. See? Simple.

As for my 6 travel essentials:

1 travel duffel / 2 bell sleeve blouse / 3 trench coat / 4 leather like leggings / 5 slinky heels / 6 chic sneakers / the rest are details: basics – soft tees, toiletries (deserves a whole post in itself) and snacks for kids (also deserves a separate post), and maps and travel guides.

 I can’t wait for our next adventure!

What are some of your tips?

Sometimes all you need is a pink trench vest to lighten things up. I’m loving this one draped over my almost all black ensemble, perfect with heels or sneakers. While we’re talking trench coats, read all about how I styled this classic trench. Stay tuned for a fun giveaway coming up.

Happy Tuesday!
