In the Pacific Northwest, dreary, grey, rainy days are as common as Starbucks locations. But when those days stretch into weeks (or months), you have to get creative so the foul weather doesn’t affect your mood or hold you back from getting things done. For Wendy Feller, founder of the sustainably-made, small-batch outerwear brand FELLER, rain is the name of the game. Whether she’s going about her day outside in her signature Queen Anne trench coat, or taking advantage of the indoors by doing laundry or tidying up around her work studio, Wendy’s guide to drizzly day must-haves will give you a better appreciation for the storm clouds rolling in.... more
I created my best-selling Queen Anne Trench when I couldn’t find a cotton raincoat I could wear rain or shine, with a sophisticated print, and which was environmentally friendly. In addition, every feature I added was one that I was looking for, including a zip-off hood, an optional zip out liner for all-season wear, large pockets, as well as an internal pocket for my phone. Go ahead and see for yourself—shipping and returns are free!
As someone who loves floral scents, this aroma mist definitely lifts my spirits on grey rainy days. I love that it can be used just about everywhere and it has a light scent that doesn’t overpower. A must-have for your well-being!
There is nothing cozier than wearing my Paychi Guh sweater when heading out on a rainy day. Not all cashmere is the same but you can always be sure you’re wearing the highest and softest quality when you purchase from her store.
I just think this is so fun and something that adds some humor when I’m sipping my scotch at the end of a dreary Seattle day. A great gift for someone who’s a space lover!
As the designated laundress in my family, I have people who are very sensitive to harsh detergents. I absolutely love that this detergent is nontoxic, biodegradable, and allergen-free. Plus, it’s free of petroleum, phosphate, phthalates, and artificial color and is cruelty-free with no animal by-products. A perfect detergent to use with your FELLER jacket!
I used to think putting oil on my face would make me break out, but after trying this I’m a believer! I love how this soaks into my 57 year old skin and keeps it feeling hydrated throughout the day. I also love that it’s made without toxins, is vegan and cruelty free. Winner!!
Call me on a rainy day on a weekend and you’ll usually find me cleaning up my studio from a busy week. Ridwell helps me do this in an environmentally effective way by recycling and repurposing stuff that normally goes in the garbage, such as plastic film and fabric scraps. Love!
Double-love-shoutout here to my dermatologist and this product they recommended for me. I’ve tried so many tinted sunscreens and this one is most definitely the best! Light, sheer, non-greasy, and just enough color to help me through the dreary winter here in Seattle. And yes, you need to wear sunscreen even on a grey, rainy day!
