Merlot Trench

Happy Tuesday, friends! I hope your week is off to a great start!

Many of you know I fancy a glass of wine or two every now and then (okay more like daily… I do have a happy hour section in this blog after all #nojudging). Well I think my love for red wine has rubbed off on my wardrobe choices because I am officially obsessed with this silky, merlot colored trench coat! Is this not such a gorgeous color?! This lightweight, draped trench is perfect for fall layering. I threw it on over a white chiffon dress and paired it with my favorite suede over-the-knee boots, but you could easily style this piece with everything from jeans and a tee to your favorite LBD. Whether you pair it with solid neutrals like I did or mix it up with a colorful print, this is a great versatile piece that will always look chic! Want to know the best part? It’s currently ON SALE for 40% off and you can buy it right here!

    I love the color of the trench coat! I love boots and just looking at those tan boots makes me want more boots for this winter season.

    This red wine merlot shade is just so gorgeous and perfect for this time of year. I’ve seen a lot of people rocking the color & you look fantastic in it. I think I definitely need to find SOMETHING this shade because it’s so stinkin’ beautiful! xx,

    Natalie, you look stunning! That color is so beautiful and I love how you let it shine by keeping the rest of your ensemble neutral. Very pretty!

    You had me at merlot. 🙂 This trench is so gorgeous. I love the color. It’s traditional with a twist. The whole look is spot on!
