You guys were so helpful last week with the purse thing, that I could use your help again!
But of a higher priority for me? I need a raincoat. And I’m not talking about one that looks like this:
I’m talking about something with color, shape, zest – and a hood! Do you have any idea how difficult it is to find a raincoat with a stinkin’ hood? I didn’t, until I started looking for one. Oh, and another qualification for me: waterproof. Not water resistant. So let’s look for some more options, shall we?
Target has some cute ones. I’ve seen these in-store as well, and I like them a lot.
They’re called “feather weight,” which I guess would be a good thing… but I’d want to make sure I sized up in case I needed to wear a sweater underneath, you know? Good for summer rain, but for spring? Hm. That can get tricky. It’s not exactly balmy here right now!
There’s this one from Macy’s by London Fog. This is the most common style of raincoat I see. And… I don’t know. It just seems so matronly or something? Not that my wardrobe is straight off the runway by ANY stretch of the imagination, but I just don’t think I’d feel good wearing it.
Of course, there’s always the North Face Grace – I see this one pop up every year, and it’s tempting. I do love North Face products, so I know I wouldn’t be disappointed with the quality! They’re pricey (around $200) but I’ve worn another North Face coat for the last eight years – so they definitely last.
With this one, though, I’m wondering if I’d have the opposite problem as the Target jacket – would I be too hot?
UGH. See why this is so hard?
This is where you get to help me again! Whether it’s a brand, style, color, link, etc., I’d love to hear about your favorite raincoat in the comments. Thanks for your help!
