Well the Rain Exploded with a Mighty CrashAs we Fell Into the Sun

a bit of a nautical beachy look for spring with a short burberry trench coat and white jeans and a striped tank with red accessories, DSC_0416

What I’m Wearing
* Burberry short double breasted trench …I think I wear my trench most often in the Spring. It’s lightweight but still warm and the color is so fresh and Springy. {and yes, I already wore it once this month}
* Blue & White striped tank by C&C California …seen here
* Made & Crafted white Levi’s skinny jeans
* very Vintage sheer ombre scarf and Tiffany lock necklace
* Jimmy Choo espadrilles Looking for espadrilles? See my post from Sunday
* Kate Spade red crocodile tote bag …from a GILT sale forever ago.

* Title lyrics from Paul McCartney “Band on the Run” …such a great groove

Last week I didn’t mind the dark roots in my hair & was really thinking of going with the ombre look for awhile. This week, I hate them. It could be that the ombre effect looks better on straight hair or that maybe I felt a bit saucier in that outfit, but I’m thinking my period must be coming …yes, TMI, but that seems to tarnish many a good thing for a good 3-4 days. Then the sun rises again and color returns to my face and all looks normal again. I may just try to schedule an appointment before the winds change though as to prevent any unnecessary added complications. On the regular, I really work hard at trying not to add stress to my life …because driving in LA alone has added years to my complexion, not to mention the smoking. 5 years smoke free this June …not that I don’t often dream of inhaling on the rare or not so rare occasion

    For what it’s worth, I’m loving the way your roots are growing in…I think the “ombre” look very much suits you (and not just when your hair is styled straight). I’ve worn my trench a few times this month as well, it’s such a classic!

    Bitch about your hair if you want, but I will forever be jealous of your ability to look so great in white skinnys 🙂 I’m a size 4-6 also, but shaped very differently… if I were to put those on, I’d look like a Mack truck after a snow storm.

    Hi Maegan, I just started following your blog. Thank you for posting this great outfit. I’m always afraid that a trench looks dull, but not the way you are it! Very nice!

    Love the entire look, but the bag and the spadrilles the most.
    We all have those 3-4 days once a month and it gets us in the worst mood possible. How did’t they invent something to make us feel better? For me the only thing that seems to work is chocolate 🙂

    wow this look fabulous on you. i love the bright colors, they make you glow. the white, red and blue combination is just stunning. of course you cannot go wrong white the striped t-shirt. but i love the red. it is so brights and it turns the volume up. but the finishing touch is that gorgeous trench, you never no when it is going to rain in the spring. Burberry for me is the one and only for a trench coat, it is like an it-bag. every girl should have a Burberry trench.

    I really love everything about this look! I’ve yet to break out my white jeans but you have provided so much inspiration here that I might just have to get them out this weekend. I would never have thought to pair them with espadrilles or stripes, but now I’m going to try it for sure.

    P.S.-I admire how you are always remixing things you already own. I sometimes wonder about bloggers who never seem to wear the same thing twice. Where do they keep it all?
