You Da BOMBer


Well unless you have been hiding under a fashion rock this year, you will know that the bomber jacket has been huge in the fashion world.

I have stayed clear for a little while as I felt like it was a bit cool for me… I would describe my style as usually quite dressed up and put together. If I’m doing casual I usually pair some jeans with a nice top from REISS or LK Bennett, so the real cool casual that I love is something I don’t actually do often. If you read my last blog I was shopping in Maje in Spain deciding what to buy. I was immediately drawn to my usual buys… An evening dress and a playsuit. Ed (my partner) really likes a more relaxed glamour vibe and he spotted a bomber jacket partnered with a dress, hanging on the wall.

I loved the bomber jacket instantly but I just thought it wasn’t me. I started to picture how I would wear it and I loved the idea of dressing it up or down, so I went for it!


Ed obviously has good taste because the lady in the shop said it was there bestseller! When I buy a new item, I develop an obsession with thinking about it. The whole flight home I was thinking how to style it for the blog and where I should shoot the look. I knew I wanted to dress it down but give it a Precious Needs vibe, that’s why I partnered the look with some heels. I thought a graffiti backdrop would be cool but Ed thought a plain concrete wall would be best. We set out to find the perfect backdrop and we unsuspectedly spotted a deserted very green and spring-like road. It matched the bomber jacket and complimented it beautifully, so we changed our plans and did a “U-ey” to hit the side street in Surrey.

This BACARY jacket is made from amazing material (I love the way Maje make there clothes and the materials they use), it has a silk material feel and the stitching is beautiful. It was surprisingly warm and it has ignited a new love for casual attire – great another love and more reasons to be forever poor!


Jacket – Maje // Jeans – ZARA // Shoes – Topshop (similar / similar) // Top – Jigsaw (similar) // Watch – Michael Kors

I bought this jacket in a EU 36 and I’m a UK 8 in tops and jackets usually. This is quite small because I wanted this fit and I didn’t want it be be done up, if you do then I would go a size bigger.

This is a more luxury brand, so if you can’t quite stretch to this but still want to rock a bomber this summer, I have found a some great alternatives from my high street favourites:

Zara £59.99

River Island £45.00 (LOVE)

Zara £39.99

ASOS £22.00

Missguided £25.00

Topshop £85.00

Urban Outfitters £60.00

New Look £29.99

Topshop £60.00

Boohoo £20.00

New Look £29.99 (LOVE)

AND if non of these are up your street all you have to do it tap “bomber jackets” into your search engine and you will get hundreds of options!


Love Life,
