I have been a bit scarce here due to very heavy work commitments and travel in the past few weeks. But now it's catch up time! And none too soon, because I have a packing capsule coming up for my month long retreat in Banff. I leave on Thursday. WHOOT!!
First, here's my interpretation of Angie's trendy casual classic, with:
Zara pointed toe ink blue booties
GAP Really skinny ponte pants (3 years and still going strong!)
Land's End Mariner sweater
Lucky Brand Leather Sleeved denim jacket.
A bit dark for spring maybe, but it's still pretty cool here.
Next up, a K/R raincoat. I'm headed for Banff and needed a waterproof breathable coat that would work both on Calgary jaunts (and for future rainy days at home) and in the mountains. This is the North Face Grace. It is hardly a thing of high fashion and beauty, but it's not too bad.
Pro: Fits well, comfortable, navy blue, hood inside collar, versatile, good pockets, logo is not obvious. (I can wear it over a blazer no problem, so layering is fine as well).
Con: For some reason it's not a two -way zipper. Material feels a bit "crinkly." Belt is not the greatest.
I think on balance it's a keep, but maybe I will check reviews just in case. And if anyone has this coat, I'd love to hear your experience.
