things i love right now: trout rainwear

trout rainwear

living in vancouver, we see more than our fair share of rain (more like 300 days a year of it!), and i always thought i was a-ok in my anorak, wellies and umbrella, but after i headed out in my trout rainwear, it was obvious that wearing an actual rain coat was something i’d been missing out on.

trout is a rare find: their rain coats are actually stylish and functional! these jackets made by trout are fantastic and hit every mark on a fashionable rain warriors check list: fashion forward, waterproof (not just water resistant like most on the market), and totally quality… and they look like your every day spring trench! each style has a huge hidden hood to keep you (and your hair and makeup) protected with a relaxed easy fit that can be worn rain or shine. did i mention the jackets are made right here in vancouver? i seriously love that.

the line was founded by sisters jenn lancefield and ashley mcdonald (how fun would it be to work along side your sis?!) and i had the chance to chat with them about their rainwear focused line.

the mint colored jeans with the relaxed fit mint colored knit is so casual but it’s kicked up to a chic look with the bow-detailed pumps. adorable!

i am simply in LOVE with this look. the deep green and navy pair beautiful, and the belt gives a beautiful hourglass silhouette at the natural waist. this is my fave look of the week!

printed party pants are all the rage this season, but these ones keep it classic with the nautical colours. paired with a simple silk look blouse, it’s such a ladylike, classic look.

what a sweet way to work your neutrals. the shoulder pouf on the blazer and statement necklace give this look just the right amount of edge when paired with the a-line skirt and classic patent pumps.
