Are You a Trench Girl?






I've actually never been a trench coat girl... I've always associated them with a more classic style of dressing and felt they didn't fit in my trendy, eclectic wardrobe. However, ever since Celine sent down very simple and classic pieces down the runway, I've been wanting to invest in some basics.

I actually knew this one was perfect for me when a rush of disappointment washed over me when I saw that there were zero trenches anywhere near the JPG area.. Somehow I found it on a random rack far, far away just waiting to be discovered by ME. It was in my size. It was meant to be. (LOL)

The fact that it was under $70 is ridiculous (in a good way). I've never actually invested in or even tried on a Burberry trench, but now I can understand why people want these in their wardrobes. A trench goes with everything and it's perfect for transition periods between seasons.

Of course I couldn't just leave it alone and let it be toned down and classic....I had to over accessorize it... Baby steps towards simplicity..

I am totally a trenchie! I too have about 5 colors! I'm slightly jealous that you were able to find the JPG for Target, but, I'll get over it since you look amazing in it!

I really love the trench, it's very classic yet the detailing is so so pretty :)

I am way into this look. Everything from the trench, to the tulle to the turban! I love classics, but I think they're way cooler when made current by adding in trends and personal flair. You did that perfectly :D

I have a Burberry trench and it does make me feel pretty sophisticated when I wear it lol. But the trench/dresses Burberry sent down the runway recently were a little bit chic and a lot rock 'n roll - definitely an eccentric twist.
