Daily Covet: LOFT Striped Trench

Sorry bloggy friends.  I’m running late today, but couldn’t let you go without the Daily Covet!

I’m thinking fall again.  Fall means outerwear (at least maybe it will this year!)

I saw this striped trench first in the LOFT Store here in town.  It looked pretty cute hanging on the wall, and figured I’d better go back and check on this cute trench online.

Loved it even more styled with bright pants and a neutral top.  It’s really such a great neutral, but the corded stripes give it dimension and cool-weather weight.

This trench coat would be great layered over hot pink, red, bright blue and more.  Or try it over other prints.  Need help with that?  Read more here.

Daily Covet: Almost Time for the Trench

It’s time for the trench.

While the calendar is inching towards Spring, our temperatures have dropped to insanely low depths (it’s 7 degrees at 11:17 a.m. in bright sunlight!)  But I had already been accosted by Spring Fever weeks ago, so it only seems fair to be looking for that cute trench coat in a neutral color (what color isn’t these days?!).

Ideeli landed in my mailbox this morning, as usual, and brought me this adorable, David Bitton trench with an even more adorable ruffled hem and shirring at the back waist.

The best part: it comes in navy too.  Holla!
