Rainy Day Outfit

While I love sunny days, I can’t resist a foggy one on Nantucket. It was pretty rainy all day, so we loaded up into our rented Mini Cooper and went on a driving tour of the island. We went from one end to the other and turned down roads as we wished.

As luck would have it, the rain turned to a drizzle as we neared ‘Sconset, so we hopped out to take some photos by Sankaty Light. I think it’s my favorite lighthouse– it’s definitely the most picturesque!

Trevose Barbour

It doesn’t matter where I travel, I always pack along a little anorak or rain jacket for the trip just in case. As a kid, I always wanted a yellow rain jacket because of Molly (the American Girl Doll). My sister had her and one year got the outfit with the yellow rain jacket and galoshes. Even though I loved my Samantha doll, I was always jealous of that yellow rain slicker!

When Barbour released this yellow rain coat, it felt like a must have. (It’s since sold out, but I have seen it in brick and mortar stores before, so it’s worth keeping your eyes peeled. Here it is in red, and it’s on major sale!) My eight-year-old self would be thrilled to see me now. It’s a little aggressive but still feels like a classic wardrobe staple.

(I rounded up some cute yellow options at the end of the post!)

Yellow Rain Jacket

This madras tank top is a great purchase for summer. It’s on sale right now and the price is too good to resist. I’d say it fits true to size for tank tops, I got the size 0.

I LOVE this one so much, this is another version of a yellow Barbour, and this one looks like it has a nearly identical shape as mine.

I love that yellow jacket! The color definitely would make any rainy day brighter!

Country Club Prep still has the Barbour Trevose jacket in stock, in a few sizes. I purchased mine there a few weeks ago when it was on sale. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to be on sale right now.


I love this! Samantha was my favorite too and my sister had Molly but Kirsten was her favorite haha those were the days. Looks comfy too!


I totally forgot about Mollys raincoat from American Girl!! Too cute. I was definitely a Samantha girl too…and I’m so bummed because they don’t make Samantha anymore. 🙁 Such a classic doll!!

As soon as I saw the first picture, I thought of Molly and her yellow rain coat (she’s the doll that I had and I was jealous of the outfit!) so when I got to that part of your article – I cracked up!!

I think I need to order one for my 8-year old self as well! xx
