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.
