The Bomber


THE #1. El numero uno. The thing that’s being talked about everywhere right now: bomber jackets for spring.ย 

I chuckle as these things come about, causing every girl to dash for the bombers in a frenzy! BUT I’m not upset about it. Mainly because this bomber has been in my closet for the last 2 years. That’s the best thing about bombers though, they’re always cool.ย 

Throw on a bomber jacket and you’ve got instant girl swag.ย ๐Ÿ˜Žย People take you seriously in this get up, but not toooo seriously.ย ๐Ÿ˜‹ It’s that sporty meets spice kind of life, and I liiiiike it.ย 

Since bomber jackets are usually cropped shorter, it can be fun playing with layers in your look. Tuck in a shirt to mid rise pants or break that cropped silhouette with a long tunic over some skinnies. I usually go for a sneaker with mine – either someย much loved chucks or sporty kicks… reminds me of that happy-go-lucky summer freedom &ย love of being Californian.โœŒ๏ธย ๐ŸŒˆโ˜€๏ธ

Psssttt, throw a casual “dad hat” onย ๐Ÿ” and you’re like, THE trendiest person alive now.ย ๐Ÿ˜ย (Kinda funny how thatย works). But like I say, if it’s rad I’ll wear it! And bombers are rad….so are caps.๐ŸŒŸย DONE & DONEย ๐ŸŒŸ

Whether you’re pulling it out of the back of your closet like me, or finding a sick vintage one at a thrift store or buying shiny satin new – BOMBS AWAY, I’ve got my thumbs WAY up for this spring trend.ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ‘
