I run all over the place with my kids, from sporting event to sporting event and to concerts, plays, shows and more, and you never know what the weather will hold! Sometimes I am in a hockey arena freezing my ‘tookus’ off and other times I am running through the rain to a presentation, the weather is so up and down! I carry a coat with me every where I travel because I don’t know what the day will hold. It was in this mindset that I set out to find a coat that was lined or unlined and had a sleek, elegant look, but not too, ‘MOM’ looking!
It is hard always staying pulled together, and sometimes at the end of a day of work, I just want to toss a tee shirt on(one of my fav’s) and run around, not caring if it has a stain on it, or if it really rocks, I just want to know that from the outside, I am making a great presentation! I look for this in every piece of exterior clothing I purchase but it is a hard find! I have to be honest, that purchasing coats is one of those least favorite jobs of mine, and the fact that you can’t try things on, when they are online often scares me! I do order things online all the time, so I am not afraid of internet ordering. I just hope that what I order is what I will actually get!

I stopped at Luxury Lane and was provided a great piece for review that meets rain, and snow all in one fine coat! Meet the Jessie G. Women’s ‘Olivia’ Raglan Sleeve A-Line Hooded Coat in Black. The coat is all about being on the go, looking stylish, up-to-date and kept. It has a clean A-Line cut and that helps me maintain my petite look without looking bulky in a coat! The coat has gunflaps and long raglan sleeves. The sleeves are great because my arms look elongated with this particular styling. Beneath the storm flap and hood, the coat is gathered making the coat classic styled(which is what makes the coat look so stylish). The front of the coat offers 4 pockets, 2 zippered, one with a flap and one open, great for stashing my cell phone in and keys! The zippered pockets are great for making sure there is always money with me and never worrying about it flying out~ as with kids you can never be prepared enough. I also love knowing that when I put my cell phone in it is shut in there and not going to fall out if I run someone into the restroom or take the coat off! The shell is made from 100% polyester as is the lining which means, wear, wash and go! The coat zippers and snaps.
Since I travel into ice arenas and then back out into warmer but possibly rainy weather(Pittsburgh Seasons are so unpredictable) the fact that the liner on this snaps in and out becomes a real plus. I love wearing a coat with jeans because it never matters what the shirt underneath looks like, the coat makes you always look dressed and pulled together! My coordination trick is that I make sure that my shoes are always coordinated to the coat, and the jeans and off I go. It is the magic of being a mom and the coat allows me the chance to stay lazy with my favorite tees underneath! I can not say enough about the look and style of this Coat. It makes a sharp appearance and has nice clean lines to it.
