Spontaneous traveling aside (and an entiiiire post on the incredible city of Amsterdam coming soon), I realized that I was going to have to quickly switch out of summer gear and get right on into dressing for fall again. It is still quite warm in Madrid, as it has been getting into the upper 80s during the day, so I was still dressing like I had been in Florida all summer. After booking my plane ticket and hostel in Amsterdam, I looked up the weather forecast. It was about 40-30 degrees cooler there... eek! Time to pull out my boots, tights, sweaters, scarves, and coat!

My favorite piece of clothing during the colder months is this Michael Kors Trench. My mom, being the absolutely fabulous shopper that she is, found it hung up on a rack in Marshall's. My trench coat is waterproof, which is perfect for those misty, rainy winter days and it is just roomy enough to fit a thick sweater underneath to keep me warm.
Although there are tons of adorable trench coats in different colors, I love having classic black.
