Similar to a man, a good trench coat is hard to find.
I searched foreeeever for a trench coat that wouldn’t make me feel like I was channeling Keanu Reeves circa 1999. Every jacket I tried had sleeves that were gigantic on my short t-rex arms or felt too long and flouncy like a dress; was too tight across the shoulders or seemed to tie at my hips rather than at my waist (#shortladyproblemz). And then I found it, waiting for me in the petite section of Banana Republic—the holy grail of a feminine rain-resistant jacket.
This gorgeous little number was my “Oh heyyy happy birthday to myselfff” gift this year, purchased with a 50% off coupon I received in the mail from Banana Republic. Happy birthday, indeed! Since adding this staple to my closet a mere 2 weeks ago, I’ve probably already worn it over 10 times. And I never exaggerate when it comes to true love.
You know that old saying, “If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, it’s yours forever. If it doesn’t, then it was never meant to be“?
That’s just stupid.
This jacket was clearly meant to be mine, and trust me, it’s not going anywhere except the inside of my closet and back out again.
And great news, rumor also has it Banana Republic will be offering a 5-day “Friends + Family” discount of 50% off up to 5 full-priced items in stores March 13-17, so plan ahead and sign up for their email alerts here so you can snag this jacket for yourself. Trust me, you’ll love it.
