Chilling By The Coast


It’s rare that I go for brightly coloured outerwear. In fact, roughly 99% of my coats and jackets are either black, tan or khaki shades. Yellow is simply not a hue that I would naturally gravitate towards, yet there was just something about this particular coat that caught my eye.

Although I work within the digital team at Target Dry, the parent company of Lighthouse, I want to make it very clear that I would never wear anything that I don’t like, that doesn’t suit me or that doesn’t represent my style. I have not been paid for this post, nor am I desperately trying to round up some publicity to help with my job. I am purely featuring it because I simply like this coat. Nothing more, nothing less.

Harkening back to yesteryear fisherman macs, this is the first nautical yellow coat that I have ever bought. The trend has been around for a while and it’s showing no sign of slowing down as more and more bloggers reach for the brightly coloured cover ups for this Spring/ Summer season.

Personally I think this coat is ideal for trips and travels right on your doorstep or even further afield. I love that it’s showerproof, it’s got a cute stripe lining in the hood and it also features rustic rope drawcords. I donned this jacket for a brisk walk along Rossnowlagh beach in Donegal, over the Easter holidays and it kept me surprisingly cosy with the wind whistling by.

I hope you all had a great May Day holiday! Now it’s back to porridge we go. Xo
