My favourite trench coat

Earlier this year, I decided to splurge on a Burberry classic trench coat and haven't looked back since. I told Stu it's not actually a purchase, it's an investment - as I expect it to bring me many favourable (non-monetary) returns, such as immense joy and great style, which, really, if you think about it, is priceless.
 
It is beautiful. I have worn in on many a rainy, cold occasions and love how easy and effortless it is to just throw it over any old outfit to create instant chic. I love to wear it open, with the belt tied at the back, over a little black dress, sleeves scrunched up at the elbows.

Here is a stupid self-portrait - sorry, I'm terrible at outfit photos.
*I know there are many more affordable trench coats that look just as amazing; in fact I own a few cheaper versions myself. But there are certain items that I consider iconic classics that are on my bucket list to have and to forever love. The Burberry trench coat is one such item.

Yes, perfect investment! I've got one too a couple of years ago when I found myself cold in Chicago. It has a removable woollen inside layer. I've been using it every spring and every autumn. It always looks chic and I'm very happy that I bought it.

Have you read them?

I've always wanted to get a Burberry trench coat. I'm hoping to snag one during the sale if they aren't sold out yet. It's definitely an investment. You won't need another coat for a couple of decades!

A trench is such an important piece to have in a wardrobe. And your is just fabulous. Well worth the investment! :)

There is absolutely true purchases are a great investment for many years. A beautiful trench coat!

Daisy said...

Oooh! Love this coat. That color is fabulous.

This is just gorgeous. I have a black trench in a similar style (not Burberry, although that is a dream of mine). I have owned it for five years and worn it at LEAST 150 days out of each year. I believe trench coats truly are the most legitimate investment pieces.

Diva In Me said...

Clever lady! Very well reply to Stu =D That's what I did to my bf as well when he bought me valuable "investment"
I like your Burberry trench coat and I think you invested wisely and well =)

misslikey said...

really smart investment!

Jane said...

It's gorgeous! Haha I don't think I'll be getting a Burberry trench anytime soon myself, unfortunately.

Luna said...

It's definitely worth it, for some reason, I can never find a trench as good as the Burberry.

siddathornton said...

i dream of one day owning a classic burberry trench coat as well. yours is beautiful :)

Holly Knitlightly said...

Ooh I love it! & an investment, yes!! haha. :)

Liv Lundelius said...

I am missing a simple trench in my wardrobe! This one looks great on you.
So exciting you live in Sydney we will be moving down there very soon.

Nikki said...

I too feel like a trench is a must have, and it's lacking in my wardrobe! I need to get one. You are awesome for getting a Burberry, and I don't doubt it's a piece you'll wear for years and years, but while I'm in college I think I'm going to hunt one down on the high street, haha. x

Elisse said...

If it's an item that you'll wear a lot and is from a good quality (which I assume) then it is indeed a great investment :)

Antonella Leone said...

hi dear :) there is a give away on my blog :) I wish that you'll partecipate :D

Juanita Tortilla said...

You are so, so lucky.
Do we assume that Stu is also a man after style?
BTW, is this the trench coat that was featured on the Burberry Body perfume ad?

Ang Lam said...

I absolutely love your trench coat!!! It is such an awesome investment because trench coat will never go out of style!!!

I am so with you ...this is such a classic investment piece! If you keep it long enough it will be worth more than you bought it for (that's what's I tell my husband anyway)

Gracie said...

I think it's a beautiful coat and a good investment. You will most likely have it for life so why not splurge?!

Caroline Ergy Erg said...

It's lovely, looks really cool on you :)

Sandy a la Mode said...

jealous! i want to splurge on one too! :)

Style Maniac said...

I'd rather have one great thing than a lot of so-so ones. That Burberry trench works for you on so many levels -- versatile, chic and most of all clearly makes you feel fantastic.

nice pics!

Catherine said...

I totally agree Trishie. I would much rather spend a little more on an item of clothing if it means that it is something that I will keep for a long time and classic styles like that trench coat won't go out of fashion. Love your colour choice too. xx
