Keeping Warm this Autumn with Lighthouse Clothing | Review

Tuesday, 29 November 2016


I absolutely love Autumn. The chilly but sunny days; perfect for adventures. Then coming home to snuggle under blankets with hot chocolates and family films. The second it arrives I dig out the raincoats and wellies - as you can never predict the weather in England!

This Autumn myself and the littles were thrilled to receive some gorgeous raincoats from Lighthouse Clothing. We've honestly lived in them since, and mine has become the best coat I've ever owned.

Lighthouse Clothing is a small company based on the coast near Belfast. Taking inspiration from the rural landscapes and beaches of Northern Ireland, they aim to provide unique style in their products, alongside the necessary practical features.
"Our love of the outdoors combined with our frequent dissatisfying weather is the main driving force behind Lighthouse clothing. We wanted to create lovingly crafted clothing that is stylish, protective and durable so that you can be completely comfortable in your surroundings no matter what the weather." 



There are some gorgeous choices for little ones. I decided to pick raincoats for both little ones - the Carrie printed waterproof raincoat in navy polka dot for Indiana, and the Ollie waterproof raincoat in the shark print for Parker.

Indie's coat is lightweight, breathable and has a durable microfibre outer lining and soft jersey inner lining, making it lovely and warm as well as waterproof. The hood is a great size, although I do find it blows down easily in the wind.

Parker's coat is waterproof, breathable and windproof. It also features the same microfibre outer lining as well as a soft fleece lining. The hood is much snugglier than Indie's and really hugs Parker's head, so there's no chance of it blowing down in the wind - I much prefer this design!

Ages range from 1 year all the way up to 8 years - perfect for if you want your little ones to match, or if you reaaaally love a print and want to get it in all the sizes. I love the extra details in the zip with the bright colours and extra poppers. And the biggest plus is that they're fully machine washable!




I've lived in the same floral raincoat for years (it's actually older than Indiana!). It was pretty useless though, and honestly didn't actually keep me dry. I chose the Romy Waterproof Jacket and I'm thrilled with my choice. 

The coat is 100% cotton (inside and out) making it a lovely fit and really comfortable to wear. As well as being waterproof and windproof it actually keeps me warm - without being heavy and thick. The floral lining is my favourite part. And as it's carried through to the hood, you can actually see a pop of colour when the coat is done up too.

There are so many extra details that make the coat that extra bit special. The lighthouse prints on the brass buttons, the "Live Simple, Live Happy" message on the zip and the fact it has two pockets - poppered ones for keeping things safe and ones on the side to keep hands warm.




Overall I am thrilled with my coat and the ones for the littles. They are warm, keeps us dry and I LOVE the designs! Jack's just a little upset he didn't get one haha.

Disclosure - We received these coats for the purpose of this review. However all opinions are honest and my own.

  5. I've had my eye on this brand, in particular the coat that you yourself have, so I'm glad you reviewed them. I'd seen them in your vlogs and was wondering if you'd talk about them. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. One question though: do you think they fit true to size?
