Trench in November

November normally doesn't sneak up on me like this. To me, October always feels like the longest month of the year - I'm so excited for November (which, along with December, is my favorite month) that every day of October seems to go by at a snail's pace. However, this year the snail's pace was more like a racehorse. I'm still getting over the fact that it's November 2nd as I'm writing this; where did October go? Wasn't it just October 2nd a week ago?

I'm determined not to let November pass me by. This is the time of year that I enjoy most - crisp air, fall foliage, the promise of the holidays just around the corner. I've officially switched over the last of my wardrobe to my fall/winter clothing, and I couldn't be happier to see my favorite sweaters out of storage and back into my closet.

This season, I had to replace my winter coat. While I was sad to see it go, I ended up purchasing this trench coat from L.L.Bean and I'm loving it! I've always admired people who wear trench coats; I think it's such a classic and elegant look but also very functional. This design is warm but not too heavy, and it layers beautifully. The tortoiseshell details are also lovely (my adoration for tortoiseshell is well-documented here!).

My favorite pair of corduroys are these bow print corduroys that I got second-hand last year. I believe they are from J.Crew's winter collection circa 2012 or 2013; they're so unique and I love the color! The navy bows pair perfectly with this bow-shoulder silk top (also second-hand) and, of course, my brown scalloped loafers that I never seem to take off.

It's so exciting to be entering the final few months of the year, and I can't wait to share more of what's inspiring my style for the late fall and winter time!
