OK so bomber jackets are like this really big thing and to be honest, like most trendy things ( see: chokers ), I was skeptical at first… I didn’t really know how to wear one, didn’t think I could pull one off and to be real – didn’t really know if I thought they were that cute or not.
I kept seeing them in every single store, but they always seemed to a be a bit pricey for the quality and thickness. I usually hit up F21 or H&M for trendy pieces because I don’t mind not loving it if I only spent a bit on the piece… But all of the ones I was seeing in F21 and H&M were over $50/$60. I get that bomber jackets are considered outerwear, but I just couldn’t justify $50+ on one that I wasn’t sure I’d love.
Recently I’ve been obsessed with The Bay. I was in there one night and they were having their friends + family days, and I happened to come across this bomber jacket and it was on sale for $25. I couldn’t pass it up. The Bay has basically become my favourite store ever since then and I keep going back for their never-ending sales. They have so many designers and styles, there is always something new to check out. Plus they always have some sort of discount on a majority of the brands, so it’s a win, win, win around here. #loveit
I paired this with my favourite new pair of jeans ( I finally splurged on Levi’s – from The Bay during their Black Friday sales, of course! ) and this cute graphic-ish turtleneck from F21.
Obsessed with all of these pieces.
This is the style of outfit you can expect me to be wearing all the time now.
Warm, comfy but still cute.
This is probably my favourite way to wear bombers but I also love pairing them with leggings and running shoes for a cute athleisure look ( totally my FAV way of dressing lately ). I also tend to throw one on overtop of my baggy crewneck sweatshirts & chunky knit sweaters. Seriously, I love how this is a jacket that can be dressed up or down so easily!
