My family and I woke up Saturday morning wondering what we were going to do for the day. What started out as a semi-serious suggestion, became a reality. We decided to make an impromptu trip to Columbus, OH. We lived there for 5 years and still have some amazing friends that we don’t get to see very often. So what should you do on a beautiful, yet still cold day? Take a drive with the fam. I called my friends up and it worked out perfectly for us to get to see all of them. Harper got to see one of her friends too!

We ended our day at a Easton Town Center which was our home away from home when we lived there. We both worked at that mall during our time there and were genuine mall rats because we’d go there to eat and enjoy a movie on our days off!  However, the store Zara had not been there yet so I was really excited to stop in there. I tried on a few things with no intention to really buy anything this time around. Marc, my husband saw me stop dead in my tracks when I saw this beautiful trench coat. I’ve always wanted one but the ones I love are usually just too expensive for my wallet. I didn’t even try it on because I figured it was not going to fit our budget. It didn’t help that Marc even said, “Ha! Don’t even think about it!” I went to the fitting room and tried on a few things but didn’t have much luck aside from one cute black and white top (cause that’s just so different from the colors I typically buy-insert eye roll lol)!

It was time for us to meet up with a friend at our favorite pub, Fado. While chatting it up with my friend, Marc said, “Oh, hey! I got you something” and he handed me this jacket nonchalantly! It took me a minute to register that it was the jacket I saw in Zara. I asked why he would do that and he said he knew that I loved it and he hadn’t done something like this for a long time. He’s such a great husband for so many reasons, one for pulling off unexpected surprises when he can.  We got really lucky because it fit perfectly! You know I’m usually a huge bargain shopper so this was definitely a treat!

One of the details I loved was the buckle on the cuff and the buttons on the shoulder. The fabric is my favorite too because it has a wonderfully soft hand with a slight sheen. I also loved how the collar was nice and structured. What a sexy spring trench coat!

And can we talk about how awesome it looks with my Lynne and Lucille hair-on-hide earrings from Wit & Whimzy?

What’s your favorite unexpected gift that you’ve ever received? And what a perfect day; Family, friends and fashion! My kind of day 🙂

Your Faithful Dreamer,
