“Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day.” How many times have you hummed that little ditty over the past three months? And while I am no Al Roker, if this summer’s weather pattern bears repeating, then we are in for a wet fall. So today, I am introducing you to my very favorite raincoat, The Classic Coat from Ali and Ro which I found at Poppy’s of Atlanta.
More polished and pulled together then your average raincoat, the Classic Coat from Ali Ro features a hidden hood, a cinched waist, snaps and a zip closure, and a shorter sleeve that will help keep you cool during our rainy, humid days. The versatility of the jacket makes It easy to pair it with a dressy or a more casual outfit. And since it doesn’t scream “raincoat” we love that you can wear it on cool, crisp fall days too. Here are a few outfits that I pulled together featuring the Classic Coat.
If you are headed our for a day of meetings, throw on an easy dress, waterproof boots with a polished look, and your Ali Ro coat and it will be easy to brave all of the bad elements you will face during the day!
Ali Ro Classic Coat in Raspberry $288 at Poppy’s . Basic Button Down Dress from Kayce Hughes $158. Diane von Furstenberg shoulder bag from net-a-porter $295. Small gold studs from Luna $31. Stone cuff from Judith Bright $258. Marc by Marc Jacobs Umbrella from shopbop.com $58. Timberland Waterproof Earthkeepers boot from Nordstrom $199.95
Now that summer has come and gone, don’t put away your white jeans! Just switch out your lighter, summery fabrics and accessories for clothes for that have a bit more weight and earthy tones. This is a perfect outfit to wear to lunch with friends or to Saturday soccer games (for women brave enough to wear white jeans to soccer fields!)
- Hoping on a plane? This would be my go-to outfit for traveling. You could wear each of these classic pieces again during your trip and your Ali Ro raincoat could take you from walking about town to dinner out.
Let’s cross our fingers for beautiful fall days. But if we have a few showers, at least we won’t sacrifice our outfits!
