The Right... Fall Trench





I have a confession to make.  I've had the same trench coat since senior year of college (read: over 5 years now).  I bought it at H&M and it was the first trench I ever purchased.  I can't tell you how many travels and adventures this coat has gotten me through which is why I was slightly devastated when I realized it was actually time to be a grown up and purchase a new trench.  They are hands down one of the greatest wardrobe staples but I quickly learned that just as I am super picky about the prints I purchase, I'm also just as picky about the khakis I put on my body.  I always wanted my next trench purchase to be a Burberry trench but that was not in the cards.  Along came the J.Crew icon trench and my heart was quickly stolen (along with a few dollars from my wallet).  When it arrived, I was super excited.  Until I put it on and it felt huge.  SO big compared to my tried and trusty H&M trench that fit like a glove (but also didn't allow much room for anything else underneath!) but everything else was perfect: the khaki material, the color, the length, everything.  I tried on at least 3 other brand's trench coats over a couple of weeks an nothing compared.  I ultimately decided to keep it and actually get the sleeves tailored (as many experts have preached for years).
I was too excited to show it off so the sleeves are still a little long in these pics but I know once I pick it up from the tailors it'll be a new trench that'll last me for another 5 years (if not longer!).
PS - don't tell J.Crew I took some inspiration from them for this look ;)
