how to wear a sleeveless trench_1
As I was working on this post last night, I had a strong sense of deja vu, but then I realized I HAD actually done this before. Fast forward to September of 2011 and I pretty much wore the same outfit when we were living in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I use to love going to the street fairs on Saturdays for a smoothie and to browse all the random items for sale.

In today’s version, I just dressed up the trench with my go-to mirror pumps and wore a more weather appropriate sleeveless stripe shirt.  It’s hard to see how cute this ruffle hem tank top is under the trench, but I have already worn it with so much – shorts to play with Knox and with a pencil skirt for church. These jeans are a summer favorite with the lighter wash + distressed denim.  I am going to show my old age here, but lately I am a sucker for a high-waist.  It’s flattering and so nice to be able to get on the ground with Knox and not have to worry about my pants being too low in the back.  (My go-to jeans you usually see me wearing around here come in a high-waist too, by the way.)
