Today I am talking about Spring raincoats.
Finally, the daffodils are beginning to show their golden heads and the days are starting to get longer. At last, for this year the skies have been so grey in London that I think I have been suffering from a touch of SAD (seasonal affective disorder). This can occur when you are not exposed to sufficient light during the Winter months.
My new sky blue Spring raincoat is from Land’s End. It is such a gorgeous colour that it makes me want to sing in the rain. My Nike trainers are a few seasons old. You can see my selection of new Spring sneakers here.
In my opinion, the raincoat is an essential item in all our wardrobes. I usually go for a neutral colour such as navy or grey. However this season I am really yearning for colour. Possibly it is a reaction to the dark skies.
After a considerable amount of research, I found this gorgeous sky blue raincoat at Land’s End. It is water repellant and has a shiny coating, which I like.

I understand that you may not be a fan of shiny so I have selected a variety of styles in bright colours and others in the more classic neutrals.
