Coffee Shop Belted Twill Long Trench Coat - Red

Classic, stylish, and in a great color--this trench coat is definitely a winner in my books, especially since it's at such an affordable price. I know I often post trench coats from Burberry and other high end designers/retailers. But it's nice when one can look good without breaking the bank.

In The Trenches Store: Spring Shoes

One of my favorite things about  spring are the options I have to dress my feet.It's nice to get out of the heavy boots and into some cute heels or fun flats. In The Trenches store, has been stocked with spring shoes since February. I needed to keep a reminder that better days were ahead, so when I first opened I made sure to place some spring shoes on it.

There are even more options now and several that I'm in love with.

Ann Marino Women's Honor Sandal

Ann Marino Women's Honor Sandal

I actually fell in love with these shoes in Winners, where I bought them. Mine however are black. Knowing they were going to become my favorite spring shoe, I decided to make sure it was available in the store. What I love about these shoes is how comfortable they are; mostly because the heel is just the perfect height. They also very versatile. Their comfort and ease make it a great office shoe, but their style allow you to wear it out on a date. Rarely do I find shoes that I can spend the whole day in, but these take me from sunup to sundown.   

Kelsi Dagger Women's Tamatha Flat

Here's another shoe I fell in love with after I tried it on. I like the cute flower decor on the front, but I loved how comfortable they were. Some flats pinch or rub on the back of the heel, making it hard to spend a lot of time in them, but these ones are easy to spend a day in.

Blowfish Women's Maguro Sneaker

By far my favorite spring shoe brand is blowfish. They offer a lot of unique looking shoes that are great for casual days. This one caught my eye because it's velcro. I hate laces for several reasons, so seeing that I could set it and forget it with these shoes put it on my list of "shoes to wear while running around." The color on screen isn't beautiful, but they're not bad on. It's a color that actually goes with a lot of other things simply because it is bland. This style does come in a darker brown and black. 


The store has a number of other great items to check out, so stop by and have a look-see.

Spring Must Haves

It's the first week of spring, finally, and I couldn't be happier. I love spring, namely because I hate winter, but also because there's more to work with style wise. I won't lie, I don't make that much of an effort during winter. However, as soon as the snow begins to melt all my angst goes with it and the urge to look pretty quickly rises. I know many of us feel inspired during springtime to go shopping and step back into femininity. I started a thread on the mallvibes forum asking people what items were a must for their spring wardrobe and below is list of the common picks.

The trench coat

Obviously, this one made my list as well. Trench coats are always big during the spring season.They may be a different style or color that takes the spotlight, but it's always a spring must have. This year the focus is on the classic trench with 3/4 sleeves. I personally like long sleeves, but that's just because I have lanky arms. Regardless of the style, the trench coat is a definite must have, and lucky for you, the In The Trenches Shop is stocked full of them.

Light hues always become popular during springtime, as more people get away from the dark drab winter colors. This spring, lavender is a favorite among shoppers. Whether it's shoes, nail polish or a bag, it's a color that's finding it's way on people in some form or another. I'm all for it. I love purple, and any shade of it is pleasing to me.

Wedge Heels

Seychelles Women's Kick Up Your Heels Wedge,Pewter,8 M USBordello By Pleaser Women's Camille-01 Wedge Pump,Red Satin,10 M USEd Hardy Women's Casablanca Wedge,White/Koi Fish,7 M USI've never been the biggest fan of wedges, but apparently a lot of people are this season. They are easier to walk in at times and with all the different styles available this season, I'm sure there might be something to please even me.


Nautical Straw Tote (ONESIZE BLUE-MULTI)

This is a trend I actually want to try. Nautical doesn't get enough attention, but there are so many ways to work it into your wardrobe. I would especially love a nautical swimsuit.

Flirty Spring Dress

An absolute must have is a spring dress. Once the snow melts, I can be seen exclusively in dresses and skirts. Skirts with pockets are still very big, and I doubt they'll be going anywhere, and dresses made from chiffon are very in this season, which makes me smile from ear to ear, since I love those types of dresses. The spring dress was on nearly every mallvibers list.

Leather Jacket

Besides the trench coat, the only other coat that excites me is the leather jacket. (well I actually love pea coats too). Leather jackets are great spring accessories. Not only do they add some edge to the girly flirty nature of spring, but they are very practical on those rainy days.

There's a lot of different trends to choose from this season, some I haven't even mentioned such as military, vintage, metallic; the possibilities to up your wardrobe for spring seems endless. I'm so happy spring has finally sprung and I can look good again.
