Daily Covet: Eyelet Trench

Everyone knows the trench is a time-honored staple.

Trenches are a timeless wardrobe piece that every fashionista needs in her (and his!) outerwear collection.

The traditional trench is khaki.  Then came the pink or navy trenches with green and white polka dot linings.  Or the yellow trench most commonly worn with Hunter Wellies.

But now an Eyelet Trench from Elevenses?!  Anthropologie has the cutest blue and white eyelet trench for Spring.  This trench is so feminine, but features military-inspired epaulets and a waist-cinching belt.

Better yet — It’s adorable over bright yellow capri pants as seen here.

Clinton (not Kelly) Trench, Anthropologie $188

It got a little chilly here in middle America this weekend.  It makes me think “coats!”  I have had a love affair with coats for a long, long time… I think it may have started with my first pea coat in the third grade.

I collect coats like some people collect coins or stamps and I’ve got my eye on my next coat.  Anthropologie has a hot little number called the “Clinton Trench.”  I’d like to think it’s named after another one of my favorites:  Clinton Kelly of What Not To Wear, but it’s doubtful.  Anyway I’m in the trenches this fall and I love this one.

Ruffles are big, trenches are big, black is always BIG and the Clinton Trench has it all, just like Clinton Kelly!
