It's always the same as the build up to the end of term looms I find myself struggling to stay cool buying half the clothing department during my weekly shop as “it will rain soon I don't want to spend loads of money” to give in buy clothing and find that yup it rains!
We have been caught out a few times this last week or so going out on a warm, dry but grey day dressed in shorts and t-shirts only to be caught out by drizzle!
I've been searching for an extremely versatile jacket to wear during the cooler drizzle periods (of which there are many), and parkas seem to fit the bill! The great thing about a parka is that its almost like a trendy pack a mac – you know that little bag that has a folded waterproof jacket inside for when it rains on school trips? They are lightweight, fold-able and best of all most of them are “rainproof” I'm guessing that means light drizzle, slightly spitting not the Tsunami of rain we had yesterday!!!
I'm also trying to get to grips with Polyvore for sharing fashion based products as a few of my JoanneDewberry.co.uk clients are retailers specialising in costume jewellery and bags. I have made this “Parka Collection” - Polyvore was actually quite easy to use once I worked out how to use the clipper thingy!
I'm loving these from New Look and under £20 AND in super funky prints.
Do you like a parka? (Secretly these are more like pack a mac ;) just 1000x cooler!) So what do you think to a parka?
