The weather so far in December has been a bit up and down hasn’t it. Some days needing extra layers, some days not and some days ABSOLUTELY FREEZING.
I needed a new coat for myself with my ever growing bump and so when Lighthouse Clothing contacted me and asked if I’d like to review one of their coats, I was super excited. They have such a big selection of jackets and raincoats on their website to choose from and I wanted one that would keep me warm and fit whilst I was pregnant and after the baby has been born. This is what I chose.
This is the Abigail Coat in Red. Available in sizes 8-20.
“Abigail is the perfect Autumn/Winter coat, providing the effective coverage of a ¾ length coat with a warm Shearling fleece lining.
Abigail is highly waterproof, breathable and windproof, ideal for stormy winter walks and crisp autumn days. The richness of the cotton outer fabric combined with insulated padding and fleece upper and hood lining, add a comforting cosiness during the cooler months.
With two front flap pockets and a useful zipped internal pocket for keeping your valuables safe, combined with the convenience of being machine washable, this coat is extremely practical. Details such as the curved hem and the contrast herringbone on the quilted lower liner ensure it is also stylish, with the choice of classic navy or the tempting pop of colour from the red.”
My children are so used to seeing me in a red coat and I wanted them to be able to spot me and recognise me from a far as they often run a little bit ahead of me (especially as I’m heavily pregnant). I really needed something that was waterproof after my previous jacket had got soaked completely through on one of the most rainiest school runs of my life and something that could keep me warm and was windproof as the cold wind really hurts against my skin.
The quality of my new jacket is just amazing and I know it will last me for a very long time. I like that there are pockets inside so I can put my phone and any other small items inside my coat and there are big coat pockets on the outside, perfect for my little ones to stuff whatever they want in there when they don’t want to hold it anymore. Usually wrappers or a pair of gloves! Cheeky girls!
What I also love is that it has a fleece lined hood to keep my head warm when its freezing, and the fact that it has drawstrings around the hood too so I can tighten it when it’s super windy outside. Once the baby is born I can use the drawstrings around the waist to tighten it around my middle. For £99.00 I think it’s a really good price for the quality of it.
