Forest Green as in the color of my favorite oldie but goodlie trench, not the actual movie. I remember posting my very first outfit pairing, styling this same Forest Green trench coat here on StyleAndSenses. You could check it out how I styled it, here. Again, since the color is so bold, I want to keep everything minimal in black and white. This outfit was shot at Volunteer Park, filled with amazing greenery. I’ve edited these photos a bit darker (the sun was setting anyways!), and I really like how the photos have turned out, moody and autumnal. This outfit was shot at Volunteer park, another favorite photography spot added in my list. I’ve gotta come back to go in the greenhouse. They have a ton of huge cacti and cool plants in there. The architecture of the greenhouse reminds me so much of the Como Zoo in St. Paul, Minnesota.
In my opinion, every woman should own at least one trench coat. A trench is usually made in a thinner fabric, long-line, has large collar lapels and a tie belt. I like to wear trench coats for the fall and spring season. The trick to layer it is to wear a warm inner layer like a faux fur vest or a sweater on top of your base layer. The base layer can be just as simple as a white t-shirt and a pair of pants like I have on here.
But I should just probably wait to grow it out a bit. Otherwise, it will have to be a tomboy short style if I chop off all of the damaged parts of my hair. Sigh!
OUTFIT DETAILS: trench: Trouve | t-shirt: Gap | faux leather pants: H&M | necklace: Zara | pointy heels: Joe’s Jeans
About the outfit: As always, all items I wear here were bought on sale, so you can browse similar alternatives that I’ve linked below. I just want to let you know that you don’t have to go out and shop the exact everything other people wear to achieve the looks that you like. Well, unless that’s something you like to do and/or can afford for. I go shopping so often that I find a lot of amazing deals on good quality items. I can find an alternative for anything trendy out there without spending a fortune. Thrifting is another way, but it’s time-consuming and not guaranteed that you’ll find what you’re looking for. I usually browse a local Nordstrom Rack or opt for ASOS for cheaper trendy alternatives. Like this trench jacket, I bought it for at least 2 years ago for about $25 at Nordstrom Rack. The brand is ‘Trouve,’ and I’m pretty sure they carry this brand at their Nordstrom store, the junior section. The only new item in this entire outfit is the white t-shirt I bought last month from Gap. I will make a blog post talking about shopping for basics and essentials very soon, so stay tuned!
I hope you’re having an amazing weekend ahead!
stay cozy and inspired | as always
I’m gonna binge watch all episodes of Stranger Things, season 2 later on tonight!
