The bomber is a long time crush Instagramed first time around a good 7 months ago.

Mens jacket: Phillip Lim (past season). More Del Boy approved bombers from Dahlia, Mango or Topshop. Drop crotch pants: Zara. Chelsea boots: Underground Originals. Try Steve Madden (35% off code: Thankful35), Robert Clergerie (on sale) or check below options. Knit jumper: Second hand/thrift. Shades: Ray-Ban. Bag: Phillip Lim (20% off code: BIGEVENT13). (black/white and nude/black on sale).  Similar style from Lauren. Hat: Mens H&M.
I caved on it at a random sale.  It was the only one there and I quietly watched a man remove it from his back because it didn’t fit. I laid on the biggest pity face possible: “um, if you don’t think you’ll have that could you let me know?” I swear I heard angels singing when he handed it to me.  Since then I’ve been wearing it with knit jumpers, loads of thin layers and the biggest grin.  
Photos of the other flashy bomber from Adidas here (love it) and the plain one here.  Funny how all these bombers are mens by the way.  Although love the details on this one from Free People.
Something less expected from me: I’m getting more into structured bags.  Big reason is being able to carry my camera around without it being on show.  I was afraid the bag would be too lady like but I dress casual enough to balance them out.  Same goes for anything ‘too fancy’ – throw on the opposite to dress it down. The lack of hardware and simplicity got my attention when it first came out and I still craved it.

    Love that bomber! Black, white and gold is everything. 🙂


    • Karen says:

      I hear you. Black and white alone is great. Adding in gold puts a diff spin on it?
