That time of year has come around again, where the hunt for the perfect coat for long countryside dog walks in changeable weather must begin. The coat needs to be lightweight, rain-proof, layerable, and if at all possible, stylish enough that you won’t feel the need to sigh and grumble when you put it on each morning.
Enter, the Boden City jacket!
I had a little credit on my Boden account left over from summer, and decided to invest it wisely in a jacket that’ll hopefully take me right through this autumn and maybe (with a little clever layering) winter too. It’s so beautifully fitted, shower-proof, warm, and fellow muddy-dog owners will be happy to learn, totally wipe-cleanable too! I especially love the detailing on the jacket- the elbow patches, corduroy-trimmed cuffs, and POCKETS! So many pockets, all crying out to be filled with iPhones and keys and dog treats and whistles and pairs of gloves that have holes in from a certain dog’s puppy teeth. It comes in navy, khaki, and a deep red colour, but that unfailingly versatile (not to mention beautiful!) khaki colour had me at hello.
A winner all-round!
