Military influences+vintage glamour= The Perfect Trench

We had our first snow this past weekend! The weather wasn't TOO cold so I thought my Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Trench Coat would be the perfect outerwear to prance around the snow in. Sonia Rykiel is the queen of Parisian Chic and this trench exemplifies that. The coat has a fitted bodice with double breasted button closures. The button flap chest pockets give off a military feel while the puff sleeves and skirted bottom keeps the trench feeling very feminine. Every time I put this on, I feel like I'm wearing a dress but in a jacket form! Of course, I can't forget the big, pouch pockets and the orange and white polka dot lining. (I can store anything in those pockets- my keys, cellphone, and camera.) Too cute! It's definitely one of my favorite coats in my closet.
