on the lookout

i've been keeping my eyes peeled for the perfect trench coat. it needs to be the right shade of khaki, hit at mid-thigh, and preferably transform me into emma watson. i'm joking about the last bit, but i think a lightweight trench coat would be a timeless addition to my closet, don't you? what do you think of the following three options from urban outfitters?

I have been looking for the perfect trench coat too. I love the aubree trench coat! Thanks for sharing!

I am partial to the single breasted one, only b/c double breasted looks weird on me, and I usually wear coats open a lot. All great choices though!

Totally with you... I'm still looking. I've got a lovely trench jacket in the typical trench colour from topshop - but that's just a jacket and a black trench coat, which is great, but black.

I am loving all the options but of course I have to go with the most expensive one:-)

A trench is the perfect addition to a closet! Thanks for coming by my blog earlier. I think a wall of shadowboxes with various wallpaper remnants as backing and then your special momentos would be amazing on one wall! Your tour looks fascinating.

I adore trenches... Definitely a closet staple. I have several ranging from Banana Republic to Zara. I Love them all. They are so classic and chic!

PS That Burberry ad is one of my favorites. Emma looks STUNNING.

The third one because of the pea coat pockets. I am so excited for you to take a dance class in college! Those are so fun and totally counts as adult ballet. I hope to hear updates!

I have to have a tie on my trench, so I'm going to vote for the last one!

trenches are a worthwhile investment. i have one that i love from h&m that wasn't so much of an investment but it's lasted through a couple of seasons and fits like a glove.

I've been looking for a great khacki trench, too (that doesn't wrinkle! Seems to be impossible to find). Spotted a great one at UO the other day though. Decent price, to boot.
