I Was Naughty (I Bought Another Bomber Jacket)

 O.K., if you remember THIS POST, I shared how I had been searching for a bomber jacket for two seasons or more and I could never find one I liked.  I finally bought a plain burgundy jacket for $20.00 at our local Macy's "Going Out of Business Sale".  I said in that post that I didn't want a black or embroidered jacket;  and look what I just bought:  A black, embroidered bomber jacket!  I couldn't help myself!  It was so pretty.  And quite frankly,  I said I didn't want one because I already had a black moto jacket,  but a black bomber jacket is totally different.  And I also said I didn't want an embroidered one because I found most of the embroidery on the bomber jackets a bit on the tacky side.  The embroidery on this jacket is GORGEOUS!  Plus, the burgundy color of my other bomber jacket does not go with most of my spring clothes, but black goes with everything.  So I will get a lot more use out of it.  O.K.  do you think I gave you enough excuses for buying yet another jacket I really don't need?  Oh, and I forgot the most important one.  My husband LOVES this jacket.  He went on and on about it the entire time I was wearing it.  Score!




I wore my new bomber jacket with another new purchase:  a.n.a.  Skinny Jeans.  In my last fashion post I shared that I donated a third of my old clothes;  and I got rid of a lot of jeans.  It was pretty heart breaking, as I owned a lot of expensive jeans.  But they were all low rise or made of regular denim.  I really only want jeans made with stretch denim and a higher waist line, and these fit the bill!  I also want skinny jeans that have that slim leg look without CLINGING to my leg showing every bump and bulge.  These are perfect!  They are slim fitting, but they don't cling.


Underneath my bomber jacket I wore an Old Navy eyelet top that I bought a few seasons ago.  The last time I showed you this top was HERE.


If you're looking for a bomber jacket, this one is still available HERE.  It also comes in other styles and colors.  I really love the blush jacket  and I am having a hard time resisting not buying that one too!  It's so pretty, and it would be perfect for spring.  Hmmm, maybe if I get another coupon?

I didn't wear a necklace because of all the detail going on with the eyelet top and embroidery, so I wore chandelier earrings instead.


What sold me on this jacket was the gorgeous embroidery.  It's just the right amount for my taste.  The embroidery allows me to wear this jacket dressed up or down.  If it were just plain, I don't think I could wear this jacket with more dressy outfits.


I stuck with the  black and white theme by wearing a black and white bracelet on my wrist, but I added some color to my outfit with a blush handbag from Charming Charlie's.


Because it is finally SPRING, I can show my toes once again!  I went with a peep-toe black canvas wedge (old).


I did size up when I bought the jacket because bomber jackets should appear over-sized, plus I like a more generous fit so I can wear whatever I want underneath.   This is a size Large.


It's so nice to be able to wear something other than a winter coat for a change!  Hopefully we've seen the last of winter here in Wisconsin.


Have a Great Day!  Amy

  1. What a great look Amy. Well worth being naughty for! And your spot on with the jeans. This is how I prefer them too. I'm just moving on to looser fitting leg wise.
    Have a great weekend xx

    1. Thanks so much, yes, I think it will work for both seasons. 5 Jackets? Wow! Now I don't feel so bad. They are hard to resist aren't they? They come in so many colors and designs. Maybe I need to think less of them as jackets and more like cardigans...then I won't feel so bad if I buy another? :)
