I was really happy with the fit and quality of my old coat, the Lolë "Glowing" Jacket (in "Black Embossed"), which is a three season belted style that I wore non-stop until it was time to don my parka:

I tried on the newer "Glowing" design, this time in a pretty grey design ("Dark Charcoal Corn Field") and although I loved it even more than my last jacket because the pattern is more "me" and the belt now has a chicer design, I couldn't commit because it's pretty warm thanks to a cozy liner. Because we're headed into what I hope will be summer weather, I decided something lighter might serve me better. But I'm watching for a good sale and I might pick this up for fall because I just love it so much! That pattern really has a mid-century modern look:
In the end, I kept coming back to this stylish rain jacket:
I've been wearing this coat non-stop since purchasing it and I feel so great in it! I bought "Dark Charcoal," which is a pretty tame colour but it lets my sky blue Hunter boots shine (they're cute in the matte finish too)...

Have you splurged on a new jacket this season? Do you have any go-to brands for clothes that are flattering and forgiving?
