Bomber Jackets are a cool classic that have made their way back from uniform must haves for WW2 Fighter Pilots, protecting them from a chilly cockpit, to this seasons hottest item. I've seen them in leather, satin, athletic-style, varsity-style, and in an array of lightweight fabrics. I hadn't found one that I absolutely love yet, and was trying not to buy myself anything this close to Christmas. But earlier this week, I fell in love with this high pile fleece bomber with yarn dye rib cuffs hem, and collar by Hem & Thread.
It was a purchase-upon-seeing situation at a little boutique in Downtown Portsmouth called Juliette Lovely's. The inside of the jacket and pockets are cotton lined with a super cute and dainty flower print. I admittedly wore it twice this week, since I worked out of two different offices, and no part of me is ashamed. Plus, back to back compliments. I paired it with light skinny jeans, an off white blouse, tassel necklace, and heels the first time, and dark skinny jeans, knee high boots, and a longline plaid button down the second time. Dress it up or down, it is soft and warm AF, and is the perfect winter white. Now for real, curbing my spending for a bit.
I've said it before and I will say it again, when it comes to buying myself things, I can be super impulsive. This year, Burgandy is the IT color, so I of course bought everything possible in the color and repeatedly have had the same Burgandy color manicure. I can't stop, I just get obsessed and I have a one track mind when it comes to color and prints. I need them all, it's just who I am.
Marble is one of those prints that has really been on my mind lately. There is just something about the natural crispness of a marble print that is beautiful to me no matter how it is used. The print has permeated the fashion world, tech market, and has even made its way to athletic wear. This is the right time of season to be flaunting those winter whites. Love love love.
