Trench Time: Club Monaco Harper Trench
There are a few wardrobe staples that every girl should splurge on and a trench coat is one of them. Synonymous with Fall, a trench coat is a classic coat that can be worn again and again, season after season, year after year.
Each season, the classic silhouette is updated to suit upcoming trends; cropped, long, textured, printed, metallic. I am a big believer of – if it ain’t broke… The classic design has been around since World War I and is still going strong.
Two qualities of my perfect trench coat are classic in design and beautifully tailored. My current favorite is the Harper Trench by Club Monaco. It features the classic double-breasted style with button closure and belted sleeve hem. The fit is strong but feminine and very flattering.
A trench coat is a versatile fashion piece that can be worn with both light and heavy layers. Rain or shine the trench coat is a classic and chic must-have.

Utilitarian Style: The Transport Rucksack by Madewell
Functional and fashionable, the backpack is making a comeback. Unlike the “mini backpack” trend of the early 90’s, today’s modern knapsack has more weight and structure.
The Transport Rucksack by Madewell has a traditional, utilitarian style with simple gold details. Durable and lightweight, this backpack is perfect for travel, school or simple daytime activities. Carry all of your essentials effortlessly, hands and hassel-free.
The English Saddle color makes this a practical choice for everyday. The softly worn leather will only get better with time. These items look best with a little wear and tear.
Backpacks are most known and worn for their function rather than aethestic. However, with modern options and designs that serve both purposes – the backpack is now more wearable than ever.

Foldable Frames: Ray-Ban Folding Aviator Sunglasses
The most iconic Ray-Ban style has been reinvented in a small compact style. These classic sunglasses are now available in a foldable version.
The design technology of eight hinges placed on the temple and middle bridge allow for the foldability of the aviator frame. Available in a series of colors, each pair of Folding Aviator Sunglasses come in a custom pouch that fits perfectly into even the smallest clutch.
As the owner of the Folding Wayfarer I was a bit hesitant for the Aviator version. The Wayfarer is supported with thick plastic as the Aviator is thin wire. After testing, I was surprised just how durable and supportive they really are.
I can really appreciate the foldable versions of these sunglasses. I constantly break and loose sunglasses. The compact size and case ensure their safe-keeping and makes it incredibly easy to take with you everywhere.

TOP Coat: Seche Vite
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat is acknowledged as the world’s finest top coat. Its patented formula allows it to penetrate through the nail lacquer all the way to the base coat forming a single solid coating. It leaves nails strong and durable, no chipping or peeling, and provides the highest gloss of any product on the market.
When this product is applied it naturally thickens, coating the nail lacquer. It magically repairs any minor mistakes of a manicure, quickly and perfectly. The drying time is fast and flawless and it will never yellow.
This is truly the best top coat (or I would not dedicate an entire post to it). The only downfall is over time the product gets gooey and stringy. Seche makes an additional product, Seche Restore, to fix this problem. Just add a few drops into the bottle and – voila – a brand new bottle.
