I have been on the hunt for a bomber jacket for a couple of seasons now and I am so happy to announce that I finally found one! The sad news is that I was able to purchase this bomber jacket at an amazing low price because our local Macy's is going out of business. Everything in the store was marked down 40 to 60 percent off. It was so depressing walking around the store and seeing it half empty of merchandise. The past eight years of bad economics has really hit our mid-west community hard and we have lost so many stores and businesses as a result.
This bomber jacket was originally $49.00 and I got it for $20.00!!!! But most importantly, it was exactly the type of bomber jacket I was looking for. If you remember my Stitch Fix Post, I requested a bomber jacket and they basically sent me a sweatshirt in the shape of a bomber jacket. I wanted an actual coat material, like nylon, so I sent it back. I also wanted a more simple one. So many bomber jackets are embroidered or covered in patches or floral designs. I think those coats look great on the young un's or the adventurous, but they are not suitable for me. I wanted something simple and preferably in a color other than olive green or black. I have enough coats in those colors. So when I spotted this cute burgundy one, I knew it would be coming home with me!
I found the jacket in the Juniors department so I grabbed a size large. It's probably a tad to big, but I believe bomber jackets are suppose to have a over-sized look to them...like your wearing your boyfriends jacket. I also wanted it nice and roomy so I could wear anything I wanted underneath without worrying about it being too snug in the back or arms.
For this look, I paired it with my black and white striped tunic, last shown to you HERE. My black skinny jeans are by Levi's.
The only jewelry I wore was a chocked from Forever 21.
The bomber jacket is a lightweight nylon with gold zippers on the front and the arm.
I love wearing grey booties with black jeans. I feel they stand out more than if you wear black shoes with black pants. And notice anything else in this picture....no snow on the ground beneath my feet! Yeah! I could finally move off my porch and into my yard a little bit. Here's keeping my fingers crossed that spring is just around the corner! Although it wouldn't surprise me at all if we had a few more blizzards headed our way.
I have the feeling that I will be living in this bomber jacket come spring. It was certainly warm enough outside to wear it today! I love how lightweight and comfy it is.
Have a Great Day! Amy
