I have one coat that I use all year round, it’s bulky and warm and so not appropriate for 6 months of the year!
Trespass very kindly offered to send out a jacket for me to review so I jumped at the opportunity to find a more suitable jacket for this time of the year.
I decided to go with the Sirena Softshell Jacket which is waterproof to 5000mm (perfect for the summer we’re currently enjoying!) and breathable to help it still feel fresh after wearing it all day.
It’s got one of those awesome ‘grown on’ hoods that I like so much and thumb loops on the cuffs like all my favourite jumpers from my uni days.
The hood is huge so on rainy walks my glasses should remain mostly dry. The hood can be made smaller using a little toggle on the back, and the way it integrates into the collar and shoulder when zipped up of the jacket mean that your neck and chin stay warm on windy days .
The 3 pockets are low profile so when they’re empty they don’t alter the lines of the jacket, but they’re still big enough for keys and my wallet.
I chose the gorgeous spa blue one because the pink one would have probably clashed with my hair (after I dye it tonight) and I wanted to be bright and visible so the kiddos wouldn’t lose me on the busy playground in the mornings.
I had a softshell jacket many moons ago, before the kiddos arrived and when the zip broke and I could no longer wear it, I really missed it. I’m so happy to have found another one that’s just as awesome, versatile and comfortable to wear.
It’s the perfect coat for slipping on as you head out on the school run or for longer country walks at the weekend. The waterproof nature means that even in a shower I won’t get all soggy and the fact it’s breathable is fantastic for the summer months.
I love this jacket, it’s comfy, practical and it looks fab on, even when I’m busting out my best catalogue pose!
