This weekend I got the perfect opportunity to put my new Lighthouse rain coat to the test. Lighthouse Clothing is a brand new name in nautical-inspired clothing designed for allowing you to enjoy the beach and the great outdoors, without sacrificing style. With the weird April weather of showers and sunshine, a light waterproof raincoat such as this green Fayda waterproof parka.
Over the past few days I've been trying to talk lunchtime walks during my lunch break so that I can explore the rivers and canals in Newbury and really get a chance to enjoy the first signs of spring; I absolutely love this time of year with the bright yellows and greens against the gorgeous blue sky.
As it has been a bit nippy, and the heavens have opened in between periods of sunshine, I've been greatful for the windproof and waterproof features of my Lighthouse raincoat. It's incredibly lightweight (it came as a bit of a shock after having lugged around my traditional winter parka for months!) and feels like I'm wearing another layer of my outfit rather than hiding away inside a coat.
As a tall lady I could do with a bit more length on the arms of the jacket but because this Fayda coat is designed with fashionable cuff turn-ups, I can get away with a 3/4 length sleeve look. This jacket is, for me, best paired with a pair of jeans and some waterproof boots... not necessarily wellies I might add!
When I browsed the Lighthouse clothing website, there were very few items in their range that I wouldn't love to wear! Their range for men, women and children, features waterproofs that would look just as fitting for a clifftop-walk as they would a stroll to the supermarket - just a a little dash of something modern and fun mixed with the practical.
Disclosure, I was sent a jacket to review but all views are my own.
