Casual in the City :: White sneakers & Trench coat

by wendy

Happy Friday everyone!  Comfy and casual in San Francisco with my favorite sneakers and trench coat.  I’ve had these Pedro Garcia sneakers for over three years now and I take them everywhere.  Literally, everywhere.  Shopping, traveling, mornings, weekends, basically all the time.  They’re comfortable right out of the box and require zero break-in time.  And this trench coat.  My absolute favorite!  Pre-loved but a new love to me.

Colin and I popped into a vintage store in Amsterdam and he jokingly said maybe we’ll find Burberry coats here.  Talk about manifestation!  In the far corner of the store, the sky opened up and harp music danced around a section of coats.  Burberrys coats.  Fun fact: In the late 1990s, Burberrys was changed to Burberry without the ‘s’.  Back to the story… Burberrys coats!  And for $100!  It didn’t matter that they were men’s coats, I was determined to make them fit!  The extra-long length, relaxed fit, and wool lining… I love it all.  Due to the wool lining, these vintage coats are heavier and warmer than the current cotton lined trench coats.  We had such good luck in Amsterdam that we always stop in vintage stores whenever we see one now.

If you happen to see vintage stores on your way out and about, I highly recommend stopping in.  Honestly, you’ll never know what you’ll find!  In regards to Burberry coats, vintage ones are usually priced around $100 – $200 instore (the current ones are $1,795 and up) and around $250 – $350 online.  I usually stalk vintage trench coats and bags here.

Have a great weekend and thank you so much for reading!
