I’ve loved this week’s weather. It’s possible that I may be the only person in Britain celebrating the sudden onslaught of rainy days. With a dramatic ten degree dip in temperature alongside downpours to rival a monsoon, I couldn’t be happier. Autumn is finally here. Bring on the layers, the tights and the winter dresses, but most importantly, bring on the raincoat.
It’s exactly what I was expecting, a light mac that’s ideal to throw over a dress on rainy, windy days. As I’m petite, it reaches mid-thigh on me (slightly longer than the model on the product page) however this is ideal for me. Despite this, I wasn’t prepared for the length of the arms. They reach my finger nails! I’ve had to roll the sleeves up to make it practical. Does this deter me from wearing the jacket? Not one bit. This is the third yellow jacket joining my collection and I love them all equally.
During my recent visit to Saltaire, you may have seen my ‘Gingham Part Un’ outfit. None too dissimilar to this outfit, after all it was gingham with a collar. However, it just didn’t work for me. I’ve reworked my Duck and Duffel Emery dress for a more autumnal look and I’m so much happier now there’s a boost of colour with the gingham. Before you click through to Debbie’s blog, be warned, she has a sample sale on at the moment and her creations are just £60. I’m lusting after the pink camera dress.
