Out of Office Trench
Out of Office
Greetings from the past! We’re off on our honeymoon right now but I still have plenty of content scheduled. But for right now, I’m out of office. As you read this, I might be on a beach sipping a margarita. Or exploring ancient Mayan ruins. Adventuring in the town of Tulum. Swimming. Getting a massage. You name it. All that I can guarantee is that I’m in Mexico with my amazing wife. And certainly not actually wearing this trench. But lord knows I love it all the same.
I found this trench on the new arrivals rack at Forever 21 and knew in an instant that it was going to be my trench for fall. I’m in love with the mustard color. I am obsessed with the length. Even the buttons on this thing are perfect. And it was under $50 which, for a trench, is an amazing deal.
Add in this super soft GAP t-shirt and amazing gingham pants from Express and I’m good to go for fall office style. The look is astonishingly comfortable but works so perfectly for a more casual office setting, such as my library. I can have some style, be on trend with the gingham, but still feel maybe just a little bit like I’m back in bed sleeping. Really, it’s just perfect.
I had so much fun shooting these photos. We got up way early and explored Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood with Zoe. went for a good walk, climbed on stuff, got coffee, and more. It was great to explore on an early morning without a bunch of people and have an outing for just me and Zoe. For those of you who don’t know, we adopted a second dog a few months ago. She’s doing great but Zoe will always be my golden child and I take any chance I can to have some “Mama and Zo” time with just her. Which includes blog shoots.
