It’s that time of year where you wrap up underneath your favourite throw and cosy up with a hot chocolate – maybe add a little baileys in there (you know it makes sense) and just relax. I honestly love it when the seasons change but I’m definitely not a lover of rain. By the time I get to work, I always look like a drowned rat which trust me when I say, is not a great look unless you have a selection of waterproof jackets that is.
*I was gifted these jackets from Lighthouse but was under no obligation to post and all opinions are my own.
When Lighthouse got in touch to see if Gareth and I would like to receive a waterproof jacket each, it was as if my prayers had just been answered. I have been on the lookout for a stylish waterproof jacket for ages now and nothing has really caught my eye. I jumped at the chance to work with this awesome brand and to try out their waterproof jackets to see if they actually do work, as that’s not always the case.
Iona Coat – Midnight
I decided to go for the Iona Waterproof Jacket in colour Midnight as I felt it just suited me down to a tee. It’s so comfortable and it’s perfect for that casual look. Think country walks or heading into town to do some shopping, this would be the perfect jacket for you. It has a soft jersey nautical stripe lining, along with cosy insulated padding. It also has an adjustable hood. I do wish I had sized up in this jacket as I do love the oversized look, so if you are like me, then size up, but other than that they are true to size.
I 100% didn’t intentionally order the same waterproof jacket for Gareth. We definitely don’t normally wear his and her’s – or do we? Hmmm! Moving on! I love the look of this jacket and it’s true to size if you did want to purchase one for your partner or for yourself. The Logan Coat also has an adjustable hood and is fully waterproof. At the moment, this little beauty is on sale from £64.95 to a current £49.95. What a bargain!
We just needed some rain to test the jackets out which wasn’t hard to find in the UK. It was raining all last week and we both wore the jackets every day to give them a proper test. They didn’t disappoint and not only do I highly recommend this brand, I can confirm that they are indeed fully waterproof. I’m so pleased with this brand and I will definitely be shopping here again.
