Hi all! With the rain we are having, I am realizing I have a bit of a wardrobe hole in my coat/jacket collection. Pretty weird for Queen Jacket, right? Well, I find myself on rainy but casual days wearing non-waterproof jackets and coats a lot because the two rain-appropriate pieces of outerwear I own are 1) the teal Burberry trench, which I love, but sometimes I want a more neutral and more casual option, and 2) my white Helly Hansen hooded shell, which is way *too* casual, seeing as it's, well, gear, and it's actually a men's jacket (which I like because I can layer lots underneath it and it covers my behind).

So it seems I'm in the market for a third option: a water-resistant trench or anorak in a neutral color (not tan for me, maybe grey, navy, or black, perhaps even a pewter or gunmetal?), long enough to cover my backside, and a casual style that works to simply throw on with jeans. A hood would be nice. It doesn't have to be terribly warm because I want to wear it in spring and fall, and I can always layer under it in the winter.

Any ideas or recommendations? I glanced around the mall when I was there a couple of nights ago but saw absolutely nothing. I'm about to start looking around online but thought I'd see if you all had ideas too. Thanks in advance!
