A trench coat and an ancient Roman glass ring

It’s another rainy, May day, and can I just say that I am over the rain? I’m over it. At least this rainy weather is a good excuse to wear my new trench coat. It’s lightweight with a removable hood, and thanks to gift cards and a promo code, I got it for less than $3. Also, it’s from the kid’s department, but let’s just keep that among friends.

This rainy day look features a very unique piece of jewelry, the Ancient Roman Glass Ring, which was sent to me by Crown Jewelry!

Crown Jewelry recently asked me to select a piece to review, and a few days ago I received this beautiful Ancient Roman Glass Ring. I picked it because A) I’m a history nerd and B) it’s so pretty. The ring comes with a certificate of authenticity explaining that the ring is “inlaid with a fragment of ancient glass, discovered in an archaeological excavation in the Holy Land.” Pretty cool, right? The ring is beautiful, and I love that I can wear a little bit of history on my finger.

I keep talking about the Victoria Beckham for Target collection (see dress 1 and dress 2), and the final piece I snagged is this black High Neck Scallop Trim Tank Top. The scallops are adorable, and this top is very affordable, so it’s a win all around. (It’s on clearance, so get it while you can.)

I’m growing out my bangs, and I really can’t decide if I like myself without bangs. I’ve had bangs my entire life, so I feel like I need to give the no bangs look a fair go. I haven’t quite mastered what to do with my nose level fringe, so I usually spend half the day batting it out of my eyes. Sometimes, I twist and pin my bangs up. This whole no bangs thing is still a work in progress.

  1. I have yet to find a trench coat that I like the look of on me. This one is so cute on you! I am hoping for no rain for the holiday weekend.

  2. You look lovely! I love that coat. For once, we don’t need coats in the UK! It’s so hot right now. Wonderful.

  3. That is so cool that you are able to wear the kids sizes! $3 is amazing and it is a cute coat! I hope it warms up over there for this weekend!

  4. What a beautiful ring, it’s super sparkly and I love interesting, nerdy facts like that too! 🙂 Shopping at the children’s section is nothing to be embarrassed about, I do it often as well
