I have great news! I think these are the last outfit photos I will have to take sans shoes now that I am up and walking on my injured/healing foot! It doesn’t feel great – and I’ll need to work on my dexterity a lot over the next week – but what a blessing to walk.
Today marks the official start of Spring Break and I am gearing up to attend my little sister’s wedding (<3). Traveling in the midst of Coronavirus is anxiety-producing (my school’s planned international trips were canceled last week, which sucks), so we’re staying alert to daily updates, washing our hands a lot, and packing hand sanitizer in our carry-ons.
As soon as temps climb above the 50s, the East Coast tends to enter its rainy season. We’ve had one or two storms already because it’s been such an unseasonably warm winter in New England.
With that in mind, I asked Everlane if I could review their new ReNew Anorak.
About the Everlane ReNew Anorak
Made with 100% recycled polyester, the ReNew Anorak is lightweight, unlined, and water resistant.
I have a flannel-lined canvas jacket I often wear during cold-weather rain, but it’s too bulky and warm for spring and summer rains, so this jacket – in a beautiful, saturated royal blue – fills a gap in my coat-wardrobe.
Since this piece is slightly oversized, I went with a small rather than a medium, and there’s still plenty of room for a sweater. It has two side pockets, a hood, snaps at the neck and wrist, and a sturdy zip closure.
I wore this on a rainy evening last week and stayed completely dry.
My only issue with the jacket is that you have to use your left hand to zip it up, which is hard for a right-handed person like me.
The Everlane ReNew Anorak retails for $88.00.
