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.

Dressing Up with Darling: Taking Flight

Linnea White

Pattern play and bright colors. Pretty sure we established with last week's Dressing Up post we love both of these things. The vibrant yellow of these wedges and Kate Spade purse paired with the cool blue of this lightweight J. Crew sweater was the perfect pairing for brighter (and warmer) Spring days. All that plus an adorable Spring skort? Yes, please! Skorts have all the elegance of a skirt, and all the ease of shorts. Not to mention the bird print on this Anthropologie one. Topped off with this stunning, handmade necklace by local artisans Birds of Paradise, this outfit has us wanting to take flight!

And that's just what we're doing - with the Dressing Up series! We're taking flight, working towards weekly outfit posts featuring items in the shop. So subscribe to the blog and follow along for weekly outfit inspiration and a glimpse of what we have on the racks!
