The Trench Coat of All Trenches: Burberry

Linnea White

Well, hey there, 60 degree weather on February 1st! With Spring arrivals coming in the shop now, and apparently random Spring temperatures, we decided it was time to hit the city in transitional Spring style featuring the trench coat of all trench coats - Burberry.

The trench coat is a classic closet staple, and it doesn't get much more classic than a Burberry. The trench is timeless, effortless, and oh-so-chic. It is also an ideal outwear piece for transitioning from Winter or Spring (or Summer to Fall).

Keeping the outfit underneath clean and simple, this crisp white Banana Republic blouse was the perfect compliment to a leather panels khaki Anthropologie skirt. Add a red lip (locally made, of course) and this stunning red Kate Spade arm candy, this outfit is screaming "city slicker."

You'll see new versions of the trench hitting the racks this season, in softer textures and fabrics for a flowy layered Spring look. But this classic tailored Burberry trench is simply timeless, and is ready to hit the city streets.

Customer Style: Darling Takes on Nashville

This weekend, shop owners Linnea and Megan went on a staff retreat in Nashville, with our gorgeous friend, consignor, and regular customer at the shop, Lindsay Wine. And when three darling gals go on a trip, of course they pack some of their favorite Darling finds, showcasing some customer style (or shop owner style).

With gorgeous weather and warm temperatures (for Winter), we left the big coats at home and opted for boots and easy pieces for exploring the city.

Darling Finds by Darling

Each gal wore a mix-match of Darling finds on the trip, each with a unique personal style and take on the Nashville scene!

Lindsay wore a Sweet Rain mustard zip jacket, the perfect layering piece for the weather and the necessary footwear for Nashville. She kept the base solid and let her gorgeous hair color and simple accessories do the talking.

Linnea brought many of her favorite #darlingfinds on the trip, including her Owl Ridge Farmstead bracelet, vintage Coach bag, and Frye harness boots. A lacey Forever 21 blouse also made the cut for the ideal whimsical base under a cozy Loft coatigan.

Megan wore a Loft plaid shirtdress and vintage Coach clutch, and threw on one of her favorite #darlingfinds to date for extra warmth - a Kate Spade leopard print jacket! Talk about taking on Music Row like a star!

We had so much fun on our retreat this weekend, filled with amazing inspiration from shops in this exciting city. We are refreshed and ready for an exciting 2nd year as the new owners of Darling Boutique!
