This pink rain mac saved my holiday. I was expecting and dreaming of sunny days spent on the beach and in the sea. Instead, I only got one day off full sunshine which I spent in my parents’ garden tanning. I also had one early morning dip in a 14 degree cold sea. Most other days I had to wear this rain mac so I’m very happy I purchased it the night before I went.
Don’t get me wrong, I still did enjoy my holiday very much but having to wear a coat for most of it, I knew I needed a good looking rain mac. I have a black boring wind/rain jacket at home but it’s more appropriate for hiking or cycling in the rain. I wouldn’t wear it when trying to be nice, which you must on holiday exploring.
When I went on a short day tip along the south east coast in Sweden (more about that in a coming post), my dad kindly took a couple of pictures of me wearing this so I could show you.
I’ve had so many nice compliments for this coat which makes me extra happy. I did originally want a yellow one but with this being a last minute shopping decision, I had to go with the colour in my size which is pink. I’m not a very pink girl when it comes to clothes but because it’s light pink I don’t mind it. I love the grey and white striped lining which makes it look less “raincoaty” and more dressed. The black buttons and thick black zip are two more nice details.
Out of the three different levels of rain proof: showerproof, water-resistant or waterproof I’d say it’s water-resistant which is good enough for me. If the rain is pouring down, I’m most likely going to stay inside. Like most rain coats it gets a bit warm sometimes but it’s of a better breathable material than other rain coats I’ve owned. So it should be as it’s the most I’d ever spend on a single rain coat – £45 in Topshop. I hope to get many uses out of this, bound to living in England 😉 Not sure how I’ve survived without one till now.
Have you got a favourite rain mac or coat? Or do you prefer an umbrella for rainy days?
