the trench coat

calivintage x azalea

it’s funny, i call myself a fashion blogger (and i’ve been doing this for just about 10 years now!?!), but i’ve only ever owned one trench coat. and i didn’t like it very much. i loooove trench coats and always seem to be looking for one, yet i never seem to find exactly what i want. until now. i know this probably sounds silly, but it’s totally true! my main issue with trench coats is that they usually just come in classic khaki or black. i hate the way pretty much any shade of khaki looks against my light olive skin, so i’ve never been comfortable wearing those colors. and despite how much i like the look of black clothes, they always make me feel like i’m fading into the background– or else they manage to collect every bit of fuzz or dust or dandruff floating around.

but everything changed when i found this beauty from san francisco-based azalea boutique. it’s made of a super sturdy cotton canvas in the perfect shade of rusty brown. it’s got an oversized fit, but the heavy fabric gives it a nice structure so that it doesn’t just fall flat against the body, which i really like. and it’s a lot more affordable than most garments of this quality for sure. to give you an idea, the textile is like the heavier-weight cousin to kamm pants. yep, i’m sold.
