Alternative to Burberry Trench

*Update: I’ve since given in and invested in a Burberry trench. Totally worth it!*

I only own one Burberry item, which is my glasses. I love them to bits, although I always take them off for pics (I hate that glare!!). I love burberry trenches on others, but I’m not a huge trench wearer, so this Ann Taylor substitute does just fine. On the contrary, I love scarves, and I adore Burberry’s signature pattern. I may have to start searching Ebay for a good deal. In the meantime, this $10.00 TJ Maxx find will suffice.

Quick review on this J. Crew Waffled Cashmere Zip Sweater (32496): The cashmere quality is great and I dont think the waffled cashmere will really pill. I got this one in an xs. For anyone contemplating this sweater: do NOT size down. It runs tts. The fit is a little funny- the arms are tighter and the body is a little bigger. But its not bad, especially since I always push up the sleeves for a casual look anyway. Overall I really like it, definitely a keeper.
