OOTD: Target Dry Kendal Waterproof Jacket

Hollingworth Lake OOTD Ft. Target Dry
Autumn is in touching distance and I for one cannot wait! Autumn is my favourite season and I love everything that comes with it, from chunky jumpers, crisp honey coloured leaves, darker evenings and of course gingerbread lattes. I also love autumn for layering clothing, cosy coats, snuggly snoods and boots which is my idea of fashion heaven. Certain shades, to me, are so autumnal such as rust, olive green, navy, reds and darker raspberry shades so when the lovely people at Target Dry asked if I wanted to try one of their items, I had to choose the gorgeous *Target Dry Kendal Womens Natural Cotton Waterproof Jacket (£94.50, in Rumba)

I love the colour of the jacket, it's gorgeous and it is quite an autumnal shade to me. The floral lining isn't something I usually go for but I quite like it with this jacket. There are two massive pockets which is great as well as a detachable hood, double zip, adjustable waist tabs, a zip on the sleeves and a zipped internal pocket which is such a useful detail. 

I have a size 8 and in jackets/coats I am usually an 8 or 10 depending on the brand. The jacket length is fantastic even though I am petite, it fits well overall but the sleeves are a little long on me. The jacket is comfortable, easy to pair with so many outfits and it does come with a cute hood with toggles details - when we took these photos, it was a gorgeous clear day with no rain which is very strange in England as it is usually pouring down especially when you want to go somewhere.

Hollingworth Lake OOTD Ft. Target Dry
We went to Hollingworth Lake in Smithy Bridge which isn't far from Manchester and it is such a picturesque place for a walk, rowing or horse riding...or taking blog photos! We've been visiting and camping here since I was a child so it was nice to walk around again although it was a little busy when we went just over a week ago as there was a rowing competition or race on. If you live near by or are planning a visit to the North West then definitely head to Hollinworth Lake. 

Overall, I love the jacket, it is comfortable, very practical and waterproof but even so it isn't a typical waterproof jacket as most tend to be quite unflattering, unstructured and pretty ugly, if I'm honest. I am happy with the fit, style and the quality is fantastic! I will definitely be getting a lot of use out of it in the next few months (well, who am I kidding, it's England so I will need it all year round!). They have numerous styles and shades to choose from for men, women and children. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5!

  2. I have never heard of Target Dry to be honest, but from your review, it sounds like a great jacket and seems like it is a perfect one to throw on when doing more outdoorsy things this fall.

  14. The colour of the jacket is gorgeous! I've never heard of the brand but I'll be checking it out for sure as waterproofs are an essential with good old British weather :p
