Embracing the Great Outdoors With Lighthouse Clothing ♥

Living in Ireland, there's one sure thing that you can't go without when it comes to the colder months and that's a good, decent coat to keep you warm and dry - bonus points if it also keeps you looking stylish too whilst you're out battling the elements.

The boys and I were recently sent some gorgeous coats from Lighthouse Clothing - a lovely outdoor wear brand who create stylish yet super functional garments that are perfect to wear whatever the weather.

I was in need of a new winter coat, something to keep me warm and dry on the endless school runs and pickups, yet something I could also wear for my daily walks with Beau. I choose the gorgeous Florence Coat Bramble, which is a decent long-length coat in the most beautiful pinkish berry colour. I have to admit, it was the length of this coat that swayed me into choosing it as I think a proper winter coat just has to be long in the length.

My coat has a quilted chambray lining and a textured cotton outer layer - both of which make it feel quite luxurious. It's fully waterproof, so it's guaranteed to keep me dry even on the wettest of days and the hood is a decent size too - it fits just right with a little room to spare. I can't stand it when hoods are too small and can't be used so I was delighted that Lighthouse Clothing had made a functional one.

The coat also has two pockets which are deep enough to keep my phone and keys in when I'm out and about. All in all it's a lovely coat to wear and really does keep me warm, even on the chilliest of autumn days.

For Tyler I chose the Harris Parka Navy which is just gorgeous! I really love the navy colour on him and this is so lovely with it's fleece lined upper and hood. It's also a great length on him and he's very cosy in it when we're out and about on our outdoor adventures.

It's also waterproof and windproof making it the perfect coat for him to wear to school. I think he looks like a proper little gentleman in it, so grown up!

I absolutely love bright yellow fisherman coats on kids, so for Beau I chose the Sailor Rubber Raincoat in Sunshine. This is such a cute coat on him and I love the contrast of the bright yellow with the navy and white striped lining, it gives it a lovely nautical feel.

He's only small, but the coat isn't stiff on him at all (a problem I've encountered with other baby-sized coats) and he's able to move freely in it. It's showerproof and windproof, making it the perfect coat for him to sport on our daily walks. He definitely brightens our days when he wears this coat!

Overall, we love our new coats from Lighthouse Clothing and shall be wearing them throughout the cold winter months and into spring - I'm already dreaming of spring days. Lighthouse Clothing is the perfect brand for us as a family as they love the outdoors just as much as we do and this is evident in their stylish yet functional offerings.

You can browse the entire Lighthouse Clothing range on their website.

  1. These coats looks so cosy. I love the way you can get so many different colours. I am not sure if the second coat still fits Matthew from last year but if it doesn't I might actually consider getting him one of these. xx
