Rainy Days In Style With Boden

A Vintage Nerd

I have been needing a proper raincoat for quite sometime. My kiddies recently got some and I decided to get on the bandwagon finally and find one for myself. As you already know I am a huge fan of Boden clothing. They are a UK based clothing company that is high quality and reminds me a bit of Banana Republic.

One of the things I decided to do for my wardrobe was to include pieces that would last a very long time. That means investing in high quality pieces. Because of my lifestyle I would love to own a vintage raincoat but I needed one that could be worn in an everyday sort of non-vintage way. But it didn't mean that the print couldn't be something fun and kitschy.

I saw the UK printed raincoat on Boden's website and immediately knew that it had to be mine. I mean, come on. This is SO me!

Of course I searched high and low for a online coupon and I scored this beauty on sale with an added coupon! Although Boden is a UK based company they do have a Boden USA site which is where I ordered it from. Can I tell you that I received my raincoat in about three days! Fastest shipping ever!

It was shipped in a large box that said Boden on it and packed with tissue paper. Each button was covered with tissue paper as well. The coats is lined with a soft material on the inside and includes a zipper and button on the front as well as a hood and two large pockets. I am in raincoat heaven!

Ironically the day I went out with the family it started to rain so the children had their raincoats put on and I quickly scooped up mine and my husband kindly took some photos of me in the rain with my new UK inspired raincoat.

After it rained I didn't feel sticky or icky in anyway in my new raincoat, It was worth every single penny. I cannot recommend this raincoat or this company enough. I typically shop their pieces on their ebay site HERE, but I loved ordered from their main site. Their clothing is very retro inspired with a flare for the modern. You really must check out their pieces if you are looking for items that will last a long time, made well, and has a 50s or 60s flare to them

This is their Rainy Day Mac Here and their Short Rainy Day Mac (the one I have) HERE.

Have you shopped with Boden before? What do you think of their items on their site?

  1. It really is very very cute! It reminds me of the M Sasek illustrations. This is also another example of how we think alike because I just got some modern rain boots in a fun print from joules another UK company
