Drystar - Not Just for Festivals..

At the start of the summer I was lucky enough to be sent a super stylish waterproof jacket from the new range by Drystar. Founders Jo and Helen started the company earlier this year, after they failed to find a waterproof to wear to festivals, that wasn't sporty or shapeless. They have thrown themselves into every detail of the design, from the roll back sleeves and metallic finish to the inside pocket, collar and hood. The result is a wonderfully lightweight jacket in stunning colours (mine is the pink fizz):

They are definitely the best way to stay gorgeous and dry at a festival in a downpour, but they are so much more than that! I took mine on holiday to a French campsite in the Loire valley, and it was perfect for the one day that it poured with rain:

Waterproof Jacket c/o Drystar
Grey T-shirt - Topshop (old)
Black Double Zip Jeans - Mint Velvet (AW13 - available here)
Espadrilles - ASOS (SS14)

The waterproof is light enough to roll up and fit into a bag, without taking up much space. It's also a great trans-seasonal jacket to use when there's a chance of rain, but it's still too warm for a proper coat. For this reason, it will be ideal for the school run in early autumn, as well as walks on the beach, watching the boys play football, my weekend at Center Parcs in September, the list is endless!
