Happy Monday! I’m back after having survived a miserable week of the worst cold ever. Let’s get real, I pretty much stayed in bed and watched Netflix because I had zero energy to do anything.
And what better way to celebrate being healthy than a little shopping trip! I’ve been wanting to buy a trench coat for a long time but it’s hard to find one that fits a college kid’s budget but I finally stumbled across one at Nordstrom Rack this weekend and I’m so excited to finally have the missing piece in my wardrobe!
#1: Kick-Ass Trench Coat
This is by Topshop that was on deep discount for only $36. Seriously, I think I may have squealed when I found this in the online arrivals rack!
One of the reasons that I have been searching for a coat like this is because it’s on my list of top items every Girl Boss should own. To me, nothing exudes power and confidence like what you put on your body and a trench coat is right at the top of my list. Pair it with a Kate Spade bag and black heels and baby, you’re going places!
So if you’re looking for a trench coat for under $50, it’s not impossible, but you have to be patient and get creative. If you have a Nordstrom Rack near you I highly recommend checking there every so often to see what’s in stock.
Amazon and Forever21 also have several options but be wary as those are lower quality (based on the reviews I’ve read). Don’t be afraid to search the clearance racks, especially as the winter season comes to a close, for a good deal.
Overall I’m really happy with my new Topshop trench, it’s a good investment to have on hand in my wardrobe!
