Goode Rider Review

Cooler weather will be here very shortly, I'm sorry to say.  I took my dog out this morning and it was 47 degrees! I'm not a big fan of the cold, but I do enjoy boots, jackets and scarves, and fall fashion.  I'm a big fan of hot tea and gingerbread or pumpkin flavored treats. There are many pro's and con's to cooler weather.  I always like to start out each season with some new clothes.  There's nothing like new items in your closet to make you smile.

Goode Rider offers fashionable English equestrian apparel for women, men, and girls.  Even though I'm not going to ride a horse in the near future, I can still appreciate fantastic fashion.  The clothing offered at Goode Rider comes in a variety of diverse styles and colors.  How about checking out the breeches and vests? If you're not looking for those, maybe a new jacket or sweater would be up your alley, among other choices? I can guarantee that you'll find something of interest when browsing the website. 

I was excited when given the opportunity to review an item from the site.  Since Fall is approaching, I decided to use that as inspiration as to what to choose.  I have a hall closet full of coats, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to have another! What can I say? I love a beautiful coat.

I finally decided on the gorgeous Hunt Peacoat.  I don't currently own anything like it and I knew I just had to wear it this winter!
I'm so in love with this coat. It's a beautifully tailored mid-length wool/polyblend coat with removable hood. I wish it was cold enough to wear it right now! 

The coat is the perfect length on me.  It's not too long, but not too short. The sleeves are a little long, but that's no problem since I can roll them up.  I love how the model is wearing it with boots, which is exactly how I plan on wearing it.  The darker colors are very representative of fall and winter.  The coat is warm, so I know in the winter I will stay extra warm when wearing a scarf, gloves, and hat.  The hood is cute and I don't plan on removing it.

This is a well-constructed coat and I can tell it's made from quality materials.  It fits well and I have no problem buttoning and unbuttoning the buttons.  The pockets are deep and roomy.  Since the jacket isn't so form fitting, I won't have any issues wearing a sweater underneath and having the jacket be too tight.

I am very excited to own the coat and I can't wait to wear it when it starts getting cooler out.  I'm already planning out outfits around it.  I think this calls for buying a new pair of boots too!

*DISCLOSURE* I received the complimentary jacket in exchange for this review.  All thoughts are my own.
