Phillip Lim Dress + Burberry Trench | The Style Scribe

It was only appropriate to pack my favorite Burberry trench for my trip to London! My grandmother gave this coat to me for Christmas several years back and it has been a staple in my closet ever since. There’s nothing more sleek or sophisticated than a structured trench coat, don’t you think? The signature Burberry check print in muted, shimmering shades makes this trench a dressy alternative to my normal coats and outerwear. I recently picked up this Phillip Lim dress and realized the ivory + gray would blend perfectly with my trench! You all know how much I love winter white, so the second I saw this dress I knew I had to have it. The modest neckline and length are offset by a fluttering waterfall hem and a fun duo of printed wool and silk. I love it! I’m currently on the hunt for a gray cropped sweater to wear over this dress for a more relaxed look later this winter.

Another new piece I picked up prior to my London departure was this pair of Oscar de la Renta tassel earrings. I already own this pair and wear them constantly throughout the summer, but needed a more flexible color that I could wear year-round. I also like the shorter style better – this pair is much lighter and makes less of a statement. I’m sure you already heard, but news of the designer’s death reached me at the airport right before my flight to London – the fashion industry suffered an enormous loss that day. I’ve always worshipped his collections and have been lucky enough to pick up a few pieces over the years. He’ll be forever remembered for his incredible talent and genius in designing for the sophisticated, modern woman.
