Love at first sight.
You know how some pieces just speak to you? Such was the case with today’s trench dress. While shopping the Memorial Day sale at J Crew last week, I came across this sleeveless piece, in my size, and on sale! Whohoo! Essentially a sleeveless trench coat, this dress can be worn on it’s own, as I am sharing today – or layered with a tee. I would love to pair it up with pants or denim, for a totally different look. My exact dress is currently on sale for $64.99 plus an extra 30% off with code ‘YESPLEASE’ | HERE. I’ve also linked it for you, with a few other options at the bottom of this post.
With some fun events coming up this month, I already had a chance to wear it this week to an event at my daughter’s school. I would also wear this dress for work, or hosting an open house in the hot summer months, as it is professional yet comfortable and cool. It’s one of those pieces that is safe to wear just about anywhere. Today, I chose to pair it with my black patent sandals and black patent satchel. I added a chunky tortoise lucite necklace (also on sale now at J Crew | HERE), tortoise and gold bangles – a gold Michael Kors watch tied it all together. As you know, I like to repeat a theme in my outfits; the brown detail on my shoe ties in with the tortoise brown necklace and brings the entire look together.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!
I love THE way YOU STYLED this trench. I believe this COULD be worn several ways, and I can’t wait to see you style it again.
Thank you Bukky! I think you are right and I look forward to styling this up with other pieces. I should be able to carry it in to fall as well. I love how you layer your dresses! xx
This is so versatile…even like a jumper on a cooler day…if a striped shirt fit under it or long sleeved tee…i think it is really cute on you and is easy to just grab and go for all the occasions you mentioned. It looks classic with a modern vibe with the necklace…those lucite necklaces are everywhere and they have a nice shiny look without being a faux jewel or faux metal chair…lighter …
You are so right, I think this can be worn so many ways! Like a trench coat without the sleeves! xx
