Check Out This Stunning Raincoat By Lighthouse

Picture the scene. It’s a gloomy morning, the sun’s been out in all it’s glory for a full 7 days. 7 whole days! It’s England for Pete’s sake AND it’s the summer holidays! That’s simply unheard of here on our damp little island. So you start to get use to it, it feels good, sun on your skin, that’s some serious feel good factor.

But as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end and this is, you guessed it, rain. But it’s summer and you have things to do, plus a little rain never hurt anyone. So you reach for your new Lighthouse raincoat. and in amongst all the drizzle, you dazzle like the sunshine.

And it feels good.

There’s no denying the fact that you need a raincoat here in the UK. I’m trying not to bang on about the weather, in true British style, but I think we can all agree on the fact that it gets wet here. A lot.

And not only is it wet, (ok, I just realised I am banging on now, but just go with it) our lovely weather is very unpredictable. Just ask Michael Fish. So a staple wardrobe essential for any organised mama has got to be the rain coat, rain mac, jacket. Call it what you like, you need one. So ladies, let’s get it right and step out in style, while not getting soaked.

And how am I stepping out this summer. autumn and most probably spring?

In a truly fabulous and bold as brass yellow mac from Lighthouse. That’s how.

There’s something about the colour yellow which makes me smile. It’s a brave colour to wear ( other lighthouse coats and colours are available!) So it seems only fitting that a bright yellow mac is the best attire for a dull, drizzly day.

My Beachcomber  coat boasts a heap of features; it’s lightweight, waterproof, windproof. Has a hood which can be tucked away, 2 outer pockets, 1 internal and is machine washable. And it gets you compliments! (doesn’t say that on the website description, but I can assure you, this baby stirs conversations!)

The Sunbeam and french navy detailing give it maritime theme, and teamed with dark blue jeans or shorts, gives you a classy yet practical style. Light weight enough to roll up into my changing bag or keep under my buggy, it’s been a lifesaver this summer.

So all that calls for now is some more rain.

Don’t all yell at once!


I was sent this raincoat for the purpose of this review, as always, all words and photography are my own.

    Whilst it sometimes makes me sad that I live in such gloomy climate, this coat might make it okay 🙂

    I’ve seen your Instagram photos wearing the coat and really like the look of it. I’ve got loads of coats but no light weight rain-coat like this one. Really loving it 🙂
