Spring layers: Cognac brown + gray trench

gray trench jacket soludos leather espadrilles casual outfit

Chicwish trench xs (sleeves shortened), BlankNYC jacket xs (brown sold out; shop maroon or navy), Rag & Bone jeans sz 24 (on sale!), Soludos leather platforms sz 5 (more sizes), Ray-Ban aviators, Baublebar necklace, Goyard tote, Ann Taylor top

It’s starting to look like spring around here but not feeling like it just yet…I’ve had to pile on the layers just to survive the biting windchill. A benefit to a looser-fitting, drapey trench is being able to layer other jackets underneath without looking too bulky. I put these both on out of necessity for warmth, but ended up really liking the pairing of brown and gray together!

I wore this same outfit last weekend traveling both to and from NYC, with booties instead of the espadrilles. I had sweats in my bag for the car ride since I don’t like sitting too long in skinny jeans, but these were actually so comfy I never had to change.

These Soludos shoes have been perfect for our in-between weather lately. The leather uppers keep feet fully covered, while the woven espadrille bottoms help outfits instantly feel more spring / summer. Other features I love include the non-slip rubber soles, and the 1″ platform for a little extra height. It was tough deciding between all the versatile color options (also love the “dolphin grey”)!

I found these platforms to be a lot more comfortable out of the box than my ankle strap ones from this post, but again I think it will depend on how well your feet fit into their whole sizes (please start making half sizes, Soludos!). I’m so glad I tried on both sizes 5 and 6 instead of just sizing up per the item listing. I’m usually a 5.5 in most US brands, and found the 5s to be snug but the better fit amongst the two. The 6s were a bit loose, and I’d expect leather shoes to further stretch out some with wear. I’ve been wearing mine in size 5 and already feel them stretching a bit to become even more comfortable.

I wear my minimal Baublebar necklaces so much, I finally picked up another one shown below (on final sale) with a pretty and versatile white mother-of-pearl stone. If you like this style of jewelry, Nordstrom also has tons of new Kendra Scott markdowns at 40 to 50% off. This seems to be quite the sale weekend as my sunglasses are marked down as well for a good price – mine here are the “brown” gradient lens and they go with nearly everything, but I also love my mirrored blues!
