Today’s outfit had to be weather appropriate. We were trekking up and down the Mall in DC (travel post to come) and the forecast was rain, rain, and more rain. Even though we only got rain for about 5 minutes in the end, I still didn’t want to chance becoming a drowned rat. I came prepared with my trusty Burberry trench coat and rain boots. I bought this trench from a Burberry outlet for about 75% off the retail price and I don’t regret it for a second. This coat has come in handy so many times when the weather has been less than agreeable. I know the trench is on trend now and forever, but it also has this awesome functionality to it that I love. And if you’re wondering if the Burberry outlet is legit? Yes. I actually got amazing customer service (almost better than the service at the regular Burberry store) and a price beyond compare. The woman who helped me explained that the merchandise sold in the outlets come directly from the stores after the sales finish (Burberry has a sale I believe twice a year.) She also took the time to show me how to wear a trench coat. I am wearing one of those ways here that she showed me. I just folded the lapel back and secured it to one of the buttons. So if you’ve been contemplating hitting up an outlet let me be the one to encourage you right through those doors.
