When you live in a city like Boston you have to be prepared for ALL types of weather. There are so many famous sayings about the irregular weather in New England but one of my favorites is the following. “If you don’t like the weather, wait 10 minutes, it’ll change.” This quote is so perfect because it’s so true! Even in the winter, it can go from being 17 degrees one day to 50 degrees and sunny the next.
As you can imagine this forces you to be prepared for just about everything. One of the staples I wanted to add to my wardrobe this year was a really nice raincoat, for that reason in particular. We get a lot of cold rain in the winter and towards the beginning of spring so a lightweight raincoat just doesn’t cut it. I have been trying to purchase good basics as I have gotten older and I knew that I wanted to invest in a really good quality jacket that would last me for years. When I found this London Fog jacket at Nordstrom Rack I felt like I hit the jackpot.
I fell in love with the color of the coat and the material. It is soft but feels heavy and luxurious. London Fog is well known for making some of the best rain jackets on the market and this coat is no exception. Fun fact, London Fog was actually first introduced into the US market when they were hired to outfit the US Navy in water resistant gear during World War II. I mean, if it’s good enough for the US Navy, I think I’m covered.
I also love the little details like the gold hardware, the detachable hood and the neck clasp that helps to button your coat up all the way to the top of your neck so you aren’t freezing! I checked online right before I published this post and Nordstrom rack still has petite sizes available in black and a beautiful navy color. These jackets usually retail for around $300 but they are currently $149 at the rack!! You can shop them here. You can also get the regular sizes on the Nordstrom website where they too are having a sale if you click here. Lastly, you can shop London Fog’s huge selection of items at their website here. There are so many good options it will be hard to choose!
To all my New England readers, I hope this rain isn’t getting you down. Stay warm and stay dry! As always, thank you for stopping by.
