I was asked this month to take part in 'The Importance of Being Boden' Chapter 1 - all about one of Boden's most enduring items - The Rainy Day Mac. (click on the link for a chance to win one!)
At both of my Boden parties, this was the out and out best seller. To the extent that I see 3 of my friends regularly wearing theirs. Thankfully all in different colours - so you'd never guess it was the same coat actually. And that's the great thing about the Rainy Day Mac - it's such a classic item, it never goes out of fashion.
And here's where I get to indulge a colour I love (but my husband doesn't) - green. It's a colour that suits me and that I used to wear lots of but a lack of enthusiasm from Mr SGS has made me reluctant to buy it much. But this colour in the Rainy Day Mac just called to me AND I knew it would work a treat with both of my square scarves from the shop.

The key to wearing a strong coloured coat like this is to tone down the rest of your outfit so I'm wearing navy and denim underneath in the first few photos.
I also wore the coat another day last week and that time, I kept it to a simple white top underneath and black ankle boots:

Black Ankle Boots - Mango (similar)
Harlequin Square Scarf - SGS Shop
Loving how well it works with both the Harlequin and the Neon Squares Scarves from the shop. I'd not really noticed they had that shade of green in both.
You can check out some of the other bloggers involved on the Boden Facebook page -simply gorgeous photos and it's great to see the other colours in the coat being modelled too. Oh and don't forget to enter the competition to win one in your choice of colour click on this link!
