As anyone with dogs knows, you need to take them out for an airing in all weathers – and for wet-weather walkies, you need a good quality waterproof jacket.
But your jacket doesn’t need to be boring, dull or dreary to do a good job!
Step in this light and lovely Lulu waterproof jacket from Weird Fish.
The sweetcorn colour livens up even the dullest of days and I fell in love with it at first sight.
It comes to hip length but the dropped back hem gives the coat a neat and flattering fit over the bottom.
The hood is detachable (love this) and you can tighten or loosen it to fit with a bungee cord so it doesn’t fly off in the wind or let in squally rain to the back-of-the-neck region.
A chest pocket is the perfect fit for your phone and you can adjust the cuffs to be snug on really wet days.
The full body lining comes in a cute stripy fabric – giving it a nautical air – it’s made from polyester and is machine washable.
My dog Barney likes it as it means he can spot me a mile off in this sunshine colour if he decides to wander off to play with another dog en route.
You can get this great jacket for half price – just £30 – at the moment at www.weirdfish.co.uk
