Suede Trench Coat

A trench coat is one of those pieces that always feels stylish and elegant. Create one from supple faux suede in taupe and I am absolutely smitten!

I wore this fabulous trench by IC Collection from My Fair Lady to brunch on Sunday. Everyone, even my fashion-challenged Dad, complimented me on my coat.

I enjoy the mixing of textures in subtle colors. For example, I am wearing a long layered crepe tunic in black over faux leather front leggings and a crystal bead and gold chain necklace all from Chico's. The faux suede of the coat relates to the suede and animal print touches on the shoes which are old from Nordstrom. The woven front black leather clutch from Saks Off 5th shows well against the faux leather of the leggings and contrasts nicely with the suede of the coat.

The roll-tab sleeves are perfect for this time of year when the weather is just barely cool enough to need a coat. The hems are not finished, making the coat a bit more edgy, but this also gives it a smooth hemline.

The epaulets and a back overlay are other lovely details that make this coat special.

We had brunch at the Blackthorn Club which is always beautifully decorated with abundant flowers for each season.

There are so many fabulous pieces at My Fair Lady! I had a very difficult time choosing what to buy when I was there earlier this month. Thankfully, their website is easy to shop from. Jon and Julie, the owners, and their very professional staff are extremely patient and helpful.

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
