Hello, and welcome to Dressed for My Day. As we’re inching toward spring…ever so slowly!..I’m anxious to begin sharing more spring fashions. And today I’m showing you one of my favorite fashion finds for the season. I have a beautiful new trench coat for spring.
Teaming Up with Cyndi Spivey
I’m thrilled to team up for today’s post with one of my favorite fashion bloggers (really a blogging icon) Cyndi Spivey. I started following Cyndi’s blog about 10 years ago, and her style resonates with me. But more importantly, I just like Cyndi! I think you will, too.
Cyndi is a self-professed lover of fashion, but she also daily reminds her readers that true beauty begins on the inside. I love that Cyndi shares beautiful clothes and styling tips, but she also shares grace and truth. Be sure to head over to see Cyndi’s trench coat, too.
My Spring Trench Coat
I’ve loved the idea of wearing a sleek, chic trench coat for years. They seem so Audrey Hepburn. A perfect blend of feminine, practical and sophisticated.
And every spring I’ve hunted for one. But the trench coats I tried before felt stiff, cumbersome and more like straight jackets. So I think I let out an audible “ahhhh” when I slipped into this pale pink classic belted trench coat. Honestly, this is one of the most comfortable coats I’ve ever worn. Period.
But besides being extremely comfortable, this trench coat is also sweetly feminine. I think the color is yummy, but the fabric is also soft and high quality. And it has several nice touches, like the tortoise shell buttons, the front storm yoke and the tie belt. Plus it’s fully lined with a lightweight beige and white satiny fabric.
This coat is not heavy, but will definitely keep me warm during the blustery days of spring. Also it’s not water-proof, so if you’re looking for a raincoat, this is not it.
In future posts I’ll be showing this trench coat with a dress and then with a dressier pants outfit. But I love the juxtaposition of wearing such a chic coat with my skinny jeans and chambray top. I did add these sweet D’Orsay flats and a floral silk scarf, but you absolutely do not have to dress up an outfit to pair it with this pretty topper.
I carried my new Michael Kors small bucket bag, which I treated myself to for my birthday. It seems to be sold out, but is still available in the medium size, which I actually like even better. It comes in several beautiful shades.
The best news? This lovely trench coat is currently 25% off.

Blessed for My Day
When you think of famous (of infamous) coats in the Bible, what comes to mind? I think of Joseph’s coat of many colors, gifted to him by his father. But Joseph’s multi-colored coat was actually a mantle of favoritism from Jacob. And we learn from Joseph’s story (Genesis 37) that favoritism generally leads to destruction.
I’ve had a favorite before, and that relationship almost exploded on me. Playing favorites is a sure fire way to ruin a good thing. At work, favoritism leads to resentment and division. In families, favoritism leads to jealousies and anger. In churches, favoritism leads to power plays and division. And in friendships, favoritism leads to co-dependencies and exclusions.
If you’ve chosen a favorite anywhere, I encourage you to remove that “coat of many colors” before it leads to a pit like Joseph’s. Favoritism doesn’t bode well for you or the object of your devotion. I know. I’ve been there.
So it came about, when Joseph reached his brothers, that they stripped Joseph of his tunic, the varicolored tunic that was on him; and they took him and threw him into the pit. Now the pit was empty, without any water in it. ~ Genesis 37:23-24
