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.
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?
