What I wore: Rain cape c/o Caper // Scarf c/o Aeropostale //Jeans: Madewell (secondhand) // Hat: K2 // Boots: Seychelles 'Lucky Penny'

When it's raining cat and dogs, why not wear cats and dogs? Yeah, I know it's not technically raining here, but the weather has been sufficiently nasty lately to warrant some fun outerwear. RainCaper was kind enough to send over this cute rain cape, the perfect solution to a blustery (and frigid) day when paired with a million layers.

Today, RainCaper is kindly offering a $75 shop credit to one lucky winner. That's enough to buy three rain capes!

To enter: Visit RainCaper, take a look around, and leave a comment here with a link to your favorite colorway and a little info on where you'd wear it! Good luck!

Hounds and cats so cute! Being able to get three for that price I would get one for my sisters as well! I'm sure we could come up with a fun photoshot with them!

These capes are so cute! I live in Seattle, where rain is a part of daily life most of the year. These capes would defintely come in handy for every day wear. I love the Montauk and the Hound and Kitty capers. email address: falling4rmu@gmail.com

Hound and Kitty Cape! I'm also living in Pittsburgh, and I'm sure you'll get it when I say I could wear this literally any time, any season, in any location. allison dot diehl at gmail dot com ~ Allison

I like the hound and kitty cape that you have on. This would be so handy as my boyfriend is from a rainy island on the Atlantic but we live in a pretty dry part of Canada that I have no use for a raincoat! Perfect option to flick on overtop of the coats I already when when we are visiting!

Jesse said...

My favorite is the one you're wearing: https://raincaper.com/shop-all/hound-kitty-caper.html
As a cat lover, this would be perfect to wear through winter and maybe for a lovely spring walk if it's sprinkling!

It was a tie between Montauk Summer Caper and the Hound and Kitty Caper. I finally chose the Hound and Kitty Caper because of the pattern that is not immediately obvious and the fact that I can match it to most everything I own. I travel a lot and packing an umbrella in an already stuffed suitcase can be a bother. This would be the perfect substitute, especially when visiting my work office in London.

I love the Montauk Summer Caper https://raincaper.com/shop-all/montauk-summer-caper.html in Yellow as it's nice and bright for a rainy day! I've been in desperate need of a raincoat for some time now and haven't found quite the right one so this would be perfect!!

My fingers are crossed.

The "Montauk Summer Caper" is an adorable and cheery alternative to typical rain gear. I'd take it out and about during upcoming spring showers!

The cats and dogs are so cute! I love the subtle joke! And where would I wear this? Everywhere!

Anonymous said...

I would wear this everyday (these days have been pretty rainy) on my bike rides around Tacoma and Seattle, WA! I realize that I have never invested in any rain-specific clothing and I generally just end up being pretty soggy, (but not unhappy!) for a good deal of time every year. This is all the better if your end goal is to warm up and dry out in a cafe or a warm home, but not getting wet in the first place seems like a good idea too. I like the animal patterned ones.!

The hound & kitty caper is so cute, yet sophisticated. I think it'd be great to wear on a night out that just happens to be rainy.

Ignuf said...

I would wear the hound and kitty style on the beach. I imagine it'd be handy during tropical storms!

Sarah said...

I'd wear the Hound and Kitty Caper when I get caught in an unexpected rain shower.

Helena said...

I love the Montauk Summer Caper! Such a glorious colour. I've been looking for the perfect rain cape to wear on my bicycle, and I think I've found it. (alittlebag@gmail.com)

I've been looking for a winter cape but it never occurred to me to do a cape as a raincoat. Love the Hound and Kitty - it's the perfect cape and print to convince my fiancé we're ready to get a puppy because I'd be set to walk it every day, rain or shine, in our fickle New England weather. Plus two extra for whoever wants to join us! Colleen.c.flynn[at]gmail[dot]com

FauxSuede said...

I'm in love with the Hound and Kitty one.. I would wear these ALL THE TIME once I move back to the Seattle area in a couple years. I would never be caught dead with an umbrella lest i be mistaken for a tourist.

This would come in so handy where I live (Vancouver Canada). I'd get so much use out of one of these puppies.

MONTAUK SUMMER CAPER is so cheery and bright. It reminds me....summer will return! I like it!

Michal said...

I love the Montauk caper. I go to Montauk with my family every year and the weather is so fickle there... This would definitely come in handy! Plus it's adorable. :)

Shana Rodriguez said...

Love both the Montauk Summer Caper and the Hound and Kitty Caper! They would be used daily on my upcoming vacation to Seattle and Canada! I'd bring one as a present to my friend that lives in Seattle too, she'll love Hound and Kitty. Thanks for the giveaway!

Rachel said...

Love the cats and dogs caper! We live out in Denver (transplanted from the east coat) and while it is generally sunny, it makes you not want to drop a ton of money on a rain jacket you'll only wear for a few weeks a year. This would also be a handy honeymoon accessory, since it wont take up much space in my bag and can go over any outfit. Thanks Julie and RainCapper! rachel dot dipalma at gmail dot com

Jamie said...

I love the Montauk Summer Caper! The yellow would certainly brighten up a dreary day! With the gift card, I'd probably get one for my mom and sister, because we think it's so funny when we match! It'd make it way easier finding each other in a crowded place, haha!

Love the Montauk Summer Caper which I would wear on a gloomy, rainy day.

Patti said...

Oh my! What an amazing giveaway! I like the saying It's raining cats and dogs, so I pick this cape! https://raincaper.com/shop-all/hound-kitty-caper.html Also, I live in Southwest Louisiana. It rains quite often, so I could get a lot of use from a cute cape like this. I absolutely hate to carry an umbrella. I would most likely be the most stylish knucklehead walking around in the rain! 94

Meg A said...

I adore the Montauk Summer Caper, and I'd wear it on campus to class :)

larami said...

The yellow is gorgeous. I'd wear mine to pick up my kids from school. I always end up holding my youngest baby, at least one project and a flower they've picked up from recess....doesn't leave much room for holding an umbrella.

Fashionable rain capes (or dare I call them ponchos?)! I live in a coastal city and my bike rides to university are often rainy. "Hound and Kitty" would keep me dry on my commutes, and look cute! Thank you!

Oh cute! I'd get the Manhattan pink caper for when we travel. Would've come in handy this fall!

I love the MONTAUK SUMMER CAPER! It's reminds me of the Morton girl! I'd wear it on my way to school with jeans and definitely rain boots!

I love the Boardwalk Blue! I would wear it to a walk around the neighborhood on rainy days or just anywhere! :)

Melissa Jellie said...

I like the summer caper. I'd wear it around campus in the spring. There is always a ton of rain.

My favorite is the Boardwalk Blue! I would wear this around my college's campus on rainy days!
Thanks for the opportunity!

What a fun giveaway! One of these would be perfect for Seattle weather and the hound and kitty color way is my favorite :-) https://raincaper.com/shop-all/hound-kitty-caper.html

This is definitely my favorite one!The pattern is just so cute and it reminds me Madeline, a book I read as a child.

I could wear this almost every day. I have to walk around campus and I live in such a dreary place.

I would wear the yellow Montauk cape. Good for being seen on your bike on drizzly days.

Great for Oregon, where it rains more than half the year!

Annette said...

They're all so cute, but I'm partial to pink.
https://raincaper.com/shop-all/manhattan-pink-caper.html

I live in a rainy area, so I'd wear it just about everywhere - I could really use it today to run errands, because it's raining.

I'm from Raincouver and it's almost raining everyday, even in the summertime! This would be perfect when I'm just walking around without the need to bring an umbrella around. I like the Hound and Kitty Caper like the one you're wearing!

I found the cape I just got at my local Goodwill, and am happy to see it is so popular! I love stylish small animal prints so this is perfect, I also discovered your blog. Love the looks you put together. I do all my shopping at the Seattle Goodwill, it is actually the largest Goodwill in the USA. My best score was a Stella McCartney dress for $19 tags still on.
