Barbour Raincoat + $500 Nordstrom giveaway!

First, there are less than two days left to enter the $200 Target Instagram giveaway!  Visit the original post for the to learn how to enter for your chance to win.  Then, scroll down for a NEW giveaway that just started this morning--this is one that fashionistas will not want to miss!

A lightweight, breathable raincoat is a must-have in the Pacific Northwest.  Although other major cities like Atlanta and New York accumulate more inches of rainfall per year than we do, Seattle is near the top of the list for number of rainy days per year.  We see measurable rainfall ~155 days each year, often in the form of an annoying drizzle for hours on end.  My boyfriend bought this Barbour raincoat for me as a Valentine's Day gift, and it is the perfect jacket for Pacific Northwest spring weather.  Barbour is an established UK brand, well known for their wax cotton jackets (Daniel Craig wore one in Skyfall's Scotland scenes) that have been keeping their owners dry for over 120 years.  It made perfect sense to take my Barbour raincoat on a spontaneous road trip to Portland two weeks ago, where we visited the Japanese Garden, shopped downtown, and enjoyed several delicious meals.  Please scroll through for more photos, full outfit details, and even a tasty Pok Pok pic.
