In Love with Burberry




Happy Valentine's Day to all my lovely readers. I wanted to post this sooner, but I have spent the weekend in bed recovering from the most gluttonous dinner of my LIFE. On Friday we went to Smith & Wollensky for a surf and turf dinner. It was so delicious that I finished the entire thing! Smith & Wollensky's has a bit of a 20s vibe, beautiful emerald awnings, intricate tilings on the wall, gorgeous gold and marble bar and dimmed lights etc... But I have been paying the price for eating a huge slab of prime rib, a lobster tail (it was my first time having lobster and one of only a few occasions, where I have eaten red meat) and a couple of glasses of prosecco...



Anyhow, I wanted to talk a bit about Burberry and everyone's feelings of the British fashion house. From an American standpoint, I guess I never realized how British Burberry was, I think most Americans are more than aware of their synonymous print and their love of trench coats (of which I am not the biggest fan of... trench coats that is... NOT Burberry!), but lately the British heritage in Burberry sort of just clicked in me and I think it started with this coat. Not to mention they have a lovely set of Burberry scarfs with hearts on them, which would be perfect for Valentine's Day- here and here

What are your impressions of Burberry? I would love to hear everyone's take on the fashion house!!



THE OUTFIT
I was originally only going to style the scarf for this blog post, as I just thought its a perfect Feb weather outfit, but the coat is just such a classic piece it really doesn't matter what kind of an outfit you put it with. Another favorite in this outfit are my jeans. I know I'm quite late to the hype, but Topshop really do make great fitting jeans! I definitely carry my weight in my stomach and have quite slender legs, so finding jeans that fit is a gruesome chore. These were a random first try at the store and I went home with exactly that pair... amazing.

  29. The luxury Rolex Watches is an investment in the future;?A legacy that can be passed down from generation to generation.Perhaps the owner received their Luxury Breitling Watches?
    through the passage of a family member.?In this case, the Rolex Submariner Watches is valued for sentimental - as well as monetary value.While a Original Omega Watches can be expensive, it is wise to remember that you buy more than just a 1:1 IWC.The unfortunate truth is that whilst it is possible to get discounts on Hermes handbags.
