BOMBS AWAY...

No, You Want These Close By

New Bomber Jackets

 

Embroidered Bomber Jacket from bostonproper.com (One of my very favorite places to purchase clothing)  On sale right now for $99.98

Here in TEXAS, we have anxiously been waiting for cooler weather and today...We Got A Little.  I say a little, because I was excited that I needed a light jacket to wear out this morning.  But it is Texas and I am already back in short sleeves and NO JACKET.  But it was quite nice for my morning errands. 

I have totally revamped my coat closet this year with a couple of newpea coats, a dress coat, a couple of trench coats and a couple of light weight bomber jackets.  I have always loved bombers and for the last couple of years I have worn a black satin Michael Kors jacket with a removable faux fur collar.  But some of the bomber jackets that have caught my eye recently were the satin bombers with embroidery and feminine designs on the front or back...or both. 

I have seen them in all of my favorite shopping spots.  On amazon.com you can find some really sweet jackets for $19.00 to $24.00.  Steinmart, Boston Proper, Lulus has them around $70 to $80.  Where ever it is that you buy yours....they are adorable when paired with jeans (MY Go TO), dresses or skirts.

 

 

 

 

One of my new favorites is a Dark Navy Satin Bomber Jacket trimmed in black featuring a peachy-pink floral design and a Black Satin Jacket with Pink Sleeves and a Patched Front Floral Pattern.  Both are great with jeans, slacks, slim neutral dresses or skirts.  You decide what works best for you.  

 

The Runway might display top-down trends, but Google searches reveal what shoppers are truly looking for.  This year, what they are searching for is likely to be a bomber jacket.  Google crunched the numbers and inn its second Google Fashion Trends Report, revealed the apparel items are really growing in popularity in the U.S. and in the U.K.

Bombers and their associated cousin, the baseball or varsity jacket was popular in more diverse materials: such as satin, silk, pink, floral and embroidery, with shoppers calling them "edgy" and "casual chic"

Left and Center Bomber Jackets from lulus.com $89.  Far right: Jacket from Amazon...$21.99.  All Cute!

 

Today I am wearing a Satin Bomber Jacket by West Kei from Steinmart. White T-shirt by Stylus from J. C. Penney, Old Navy Boyfriend straight jeans.  I had a lot of walking to do and when that is the case, I am usually in a pair of comfortable wedges...these by Jessica Simpson.  Jewelry from amazon.com.  A while back I ordered a set with 4 sizes of black velvet chokers (Does that take you back to the 70s?) and three styles of the leather wrap necklaces.

I know that as you are out and about, you will start noticing these all around your town.  Have fun with them. 

Blessings to all of you my friends!
