It took me a really long time to find a rain coat. We’re talking years. Every season I’d look around and Pin things I like online but I could never find exactly what I wanted. Because pushing a double stroller and carrying an umbrella is damn near impossible, I wanted something waterproof, obviously, and hooded. Something with a lining that’s warm enough for fall and cool enough for spring. Something loose enough for layering but not too drapey and oversized. And something blue. I toyed with bright yellow, because who doesn’t love a bright yellow rain coat? But blue is more my style and I found the perfect bright yellow rain coat for Isla (which I got on sale) so I’ll just live vicariously through her, as I do with the rest of her wardrobe. After lots of searching, I settled on this coat from Petit Bateau. I thought they only made kids clothes, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a women’s section. The coat is exactly what I wanted and needed. I now find myself looking forward to rain just so I can wear it! And while it’s a bit more than I wanted to spend, Petit Bateau offers 30 percent off plus free shipping on your first order when you sign up for email. Bonus! Money well spent.
