Many times I head out early with the children and the sun is shining and by the time I get to the school gates it is pouring! With children, a puppy and schoolbags an umbrella is just not an option.
When I found this great blazer with a detachable hood I was sold! The hood is interchangeable and you can swap it for a different colour.
I have my eye on this spectacular jacket from the new collection
Another option of course is to wear a hoodie inside your blazer but this can sometimes look bulky, they do come up on Ebay, there are a few on at the moment.
