9 to 5 Style - Trench coats

Welcome to 9 to 5 Style! The third  Monday of every month Jennie of A Pocketful of Polka Dots and I will showcase a theme featuring our individual takes on a professional look. Our aim is to inspire and show professional style does not have to mean boring and without personality. We hope you enjoy our 9 to 5 Style!

This month's theme is trench coats. I featured them in my "5 Spring Jackets You Should Consider" post. They make a great spring layer for those of you that still need the layers in spring. For us, it is usually warm in the spring (83 degrees on Sunday as I prepare this post) so I don't own a trench coat. I do, however, own a sleeveless trench that allows me to have the same vibes without being too warm, so I have styled my sleeveless trench for you. ( If I were to get a regular trench coat, I'm swooning over this gingham trench.)

I recently added two new pieces to my wardrobe that have been on a forever wish list- red trousers and an olive blouse that's appropriate for work. I have an olive shirt but it's more on the casual side.  I was perusing the clearance section at Target recently and came across this one. I've also updated the pants wardrobe and decided to add a red pair to the collection. I think they will be a lot of fun.
I don't know what was going on with these photos. My camera was having a hard time focusing. It was just a couple of days before Matthew rolled in and we were beginning to have a lot of wind and rain. The hubby speculated that because the bushes behind me were moving so much the camera didn't know what to focus on. I didn't take time to try manual focus because that's really difficult when you are using a remote. I have yet to have a chance to take photos again since I took these so I'm hoping my camera and lens are okay.

Falling into the trenches

Well,  that was a cheesy post title but I've never claimed to be good at catchy titles. This outfit does incorporate a trench and a fall colored pencil skirt, along with one of my go to button down blouses. I bet I can't even count how many times or ways I've worn this shirt. That would probably make a fun post to round up all the ways. It's a little difficult to find sleeveless trenches to link up, but this trench vest would look equally well with a pencil skirt and make other cute fall outfits.
You may notice something wrong with my right eye. I have had "inflammation" in it for the past week. It actually started a week prior with a sinus infection, cleared up then came back after the sinus infection was gone. The doctor says it is not infected, but it's inflammation. Other than the sinus infection, I can't really find a cause. Sometimes this condition is linked to other inflammatory conditions in the body but I don't have any of those. Nonetheless, I have had this red, sometimes painful eye for a week. It is beginning to get better, but I'd appreciate a few prayers for full healing.

Super quick post this morning. I've been out of town for work for three days and got home at 9:00 pm last night. My routine will be a little off today because my stuff is still in a suitcase and nothing is prepped for today.
I love the sleeveless trench for warmer days when it's too hot for a blazer. My work often requires a concealment garment and the trench is working well for that. I paired an older Loft top with trousers from this year. That's a plus of repeat shopping with a favorite retailer. There items tend to pair well together even from different seasons.

The trench that I included in my capsule is finally making an appearance. When I decided that I had to have this piece, I went on an all out search and caved in and spent more than I would like to on one piece, even buying second hand on poshmark. I convinced myself it would be very versatile for work and lighter than a blazer when it got warmer, but then I didn't have the courage to wear it because it's so different for me. I'm sure it will gradually see more wear. I had fun wearing it.
