♥ Barbour

After umming and ahhing over what waterproof coat to buy for the past few weeks I finally made my decision. I went for the Barbour Beadham Waxed Jacket. I looked at cheaper waxed jackets and more sporty waterproof coats but I kept on coming back to the Beadham.
I was so excited when it arrived and put it on straight away. Its is nice and light with enough room to put some layers underneath in winter. I don't think I'm a typical Barbour customer but I love the quality and fit of the item and can't wait to wear it.

 I love the fact that the coat was handmade in the UK and Barbour 'remains true to its core values as a family business which espouses the unique values of the British Countryside and brings the qualities of wit, grit and glamour to its beautifully functional clothing.' I think this jacket will be with me for a very long time, such a classic item.

Quick post today as I'm off to see lots of my favourite people at #bloggersinbrum.Its going to rain all weekend so I can wear my new coat and stay dry :)

  6. All the posh kids at my university had those coats - kinda put me off because I'm not "rah" [as we called the private school students] enough to pull one off lol.

  10. I would never really have thought of looking at Barbour jackets before but this one is so nice, you've made me want one too! I love the turn up cuffs.
    I really need a 'sensible' jacket as none of mine are waterproof or have hoods - not ideal for this weather! x

  13. Hi! I have a question about your jacket – what size do you wear? I'm buying one as well but I'm not really sure about the sizes – are they normal?

    1. Hi Louise, they are true to size. I have a size 16 and it fits very well. If you plan on wearing loads of layers underneath if you're an outdoors type I would suggest sizing up x
