The trench coat

April is here and so is Spring!! I hope everyone has an excellent "April Fool's Day joke" to share at work today. I apologize for my lack of blog posts recently. I've been preoccupied on the job-hunt front, and I'll be honest interviewing with several employers consecutively is exhausting; thus I've been reaching for the Merlot this past week, rather than my camera. Whoopsie!!
But to make up for lost time, I've featured two looks on styling your trench for Spring today and there will be more looks to come this week!!

Yes it's Spring, but we can't forget those Spring showers that sneak up on us. For this cloudy, brisk New York day I styled my trench with my excitement for spring by using bright pops of color and print, and what better print for spring than purple cheetah!!!?

Love this color of nail polish, "OPI on Collins Ave."
And the necklace is from Forever21, great for "girly" outfits and interviews ;)

I love a comfortable but trendy look,  there's nothing better than finding an outfit that makes you feel cute but is also comfy. For my second look I've paired my trench with my striped sweater dress from H & M and used bright accessories to accent my neutral ensemble.

For those of you who don't know me, I have an obsession with skeleton art and jewelry and I found this little gem at the Young Designer Market in Chelsea. Great shopping spot!!

Happy Monday!!
