What I wore – Ready for the rain

I usually think of raincoats as being sad, shapeless, colourless affairs that in no way compensate for the misery of rainy weather. Not so with this Fayda waterproof parka coat sent to me by Lighthouse. This shade of green (they call it seagrass) is an instant pickmeup. The striped blue lining offers a classic feel and all the detailing makes for a structured piece I actually look forward to taking out into the rain or even just a windy day. It’s seen a few rainy outings now and done the job too. Sadly, whereas I could still zip it up three weeks ago when these pictures were taken, my bump now won’t even let me hold it together! Crazy how that’s happened so quickly. I’m looking forward to wearing it again once the baby is here.

    I’m a big fan of a coloured raincoat, I think it makes such a difference on a dreary day! I have a bright yellow one 🙂

    it looks great! I’ve just got a yellow/gold raincoat and it makes me so happy – we need some colour on those wet grey days!

    I seriously love your green jacket – I am all about practical waterproof clothing that is also stylish and not frumpy and this fits the bill perfectly – also your looking amazing

    Such a lovely shade of green and I’m sure you’ll get plenty of opportunity to wear it again (thanks to the good old British weather!!) x
