Don't you just love it when you can finally wear your fave sandals without freezing half to death and subsequently contracting frostbite!? . . . yes, me too. But then the weather does a complete u-turn and you suddenly find yourself battling gale force winds and rain showers of biblical proportions. 

If you're not from Ireland or the UK then you probably have little empathy for the difficult task that 'dressing for the weather' can be. You wake up and the sun's blazing in the sky, so you do a happy dance (obviously), throw on the smallest clothes you can find and waltz out the door like no-ones business. An hour later it's pelting down, and you're doing the walk of shame whilst the local 'know it alls' mutter under their breath about how they "hope they get the weather you're expecting". I've done that shameful walk on several occasions, so when local company Target Dry asked if I'd like to choose a piece from their collection, well, who was I to say no!?

I went with this very classic piece, known as the Cheltenham. And besides being totally gorge, this coat is windproof, waterproof and just great quality. So basically every girls back up plan to the unpredictable weather that us Irish folk have the displeasure of dealing with.

You can check out target dry's full website here. Do have a look, not just because their products are fab quality, but because supporting local business is super important.
