Free People Printed Lace Raincoat
Tuesday March 20, 2012
Today I needed a new raincoat.
So I ordered this Printed Lace Raincoat from Free People.
I chose the “Ivory” version.
I’ve loved rain gear ever since I was a kid. I remember running through puddles in an oversized bright blue Mickey Mouse slicker with matching rain boots. It’s a surprise I never got pneumonia.
When I got into work today I noticed my current raincoat’s lining was peeling badly. I’ve had it for years. I saw some raincoats at Target last night but I wasn’t crazy about how bright & vivid the colors were. After a bit of browsing online I came upon the Free People one. When I saw it folded up for carrying I was sold!
What I didn’t like about my old raincoat was that it was also a light jacket. It got really hot to wear during the rainiest season here (June,) but too thin to wear alone in winter. The Free People one looks large enough to slip over a light jacket or maybe even my wool coat. I’ll see when it arrives. And it looks thin enough to wear during the hot summer months too. Plus I won’t have to “wear it” until I actually need it! Unlike my old rain coat that I’d wear in preparation with forecast rain which sometimes ended up with me carrying it home completely useless for the day. I actually carried it home today because the rain had stopped and it was too hot to wear.
Should fit in alright with my other rainy season items.
