I talked about some of my bucket list wardrobe items in a recent post.  Someday I'll actually write it down - and maybe even add it as a page to my blog, but in the meantime, it's been percolating in the gray matter for some time.  A soft, drapey trench coat has been on the list for a while, ever since I saw this post from Kendi, as well as many other photos back in the day on Pinterest.  A trench is such a classic look, and since I already have a (okay, two!) classic structured khaki trench coats (see this post and this one for outfits using each one), I thought a soft one would add some completely different options.  When I stumbled on this purplish-gray coat at a thrift shop, I didn't hesitate.  I would never have ordered this color if I was buying new, but I absolutely love how it goes with my blush items, and I'm curious to see what other color combinations I can make.  That's one of my favorite things about thrifting, the unexpected choices you can make when you're paying so little.

Here's a collage of soft trenches for spring, if this item happens to be on your bucket list, too!:
