Sunshine on a Rainy Day

Wednesday, 9 May 2012

Rain, rain and more rain. Or that's how it has felt for the last two weeks but as I set off out this morning - there was a glimmer of sunshine and that was enough for me to break out the new Office boots and my happy sunshine rain jacket.

I just fancied a little bit of colour to lift the mood and the yellow of this jacket certainly does that. Its from Aubin and Wills (which I regard as the older more expensive sister brand to Jack Wills) from a couple of years back and though it's not the most versatile of jackets I love it despite all its impractialities. It's not easy to put on as I have to pull it on over my head and then wrestle myself back out of it afterwards like a flailing canary but hey, I like it and sometimes we have to be prepared to put up with a bit of awkwardness for things we really like. And it's sunshine yellow ... and we all need a little bit of sunshine yellow in our lives don't we?

Last thought, I don't look like a fisherman in it - do I? That was a rhetorical question. Please don't answer that. I will wear the jacket regardless.
