Denim Bomb :: chambray bomber jacket

Sunday, April 19, 2015

Since my last bomber-inspired post, my love for these jackets has in no way faltered and today I'm showing off an entirely unique bomber - a denim one. Jean jackets may have been around forever, but you've never seen one like this before!
Unlike the last bomber jacket I blogged about, this one is much lighter and ideal for those warmer spring days or cooler summer nights. It's extremely comfortable and I sized up to get that extra slouchy fit. 
I've been getting so much use out of these earrings lately. For those of us who may feel a tad intimated by overbearing earcuffs, an earring like this is a happy (and equally as stylish) compromise. 
I got this cuff a few years ago and it's one of those pieces that I always seem to forget I own. But once in a while I'll uncover it beneath oodles and oodles of my other bracelets and low and behold it'll be the perfect accessory to wear that day! 
This skirt is definitely a favorite of mine. The bright shade and the subtle pleats make this piece soft, feminine, but also bold in its own right. As a bonus, it's high-waisted, which makes it ideal for crop tops ;)
I've been digging denim everything lately and I think this chambray bomber jacket is a fantastic addition to my closet. The style reminds me of something straight out of the 80s but the fabric is so current and fresh, making it stylish and unexpected for this decade.

I've been having so much fun dressing for spring as well as window shopping around and checking out my favorite store's new collections. But sadly actual spring shopping is something that really isn't in the cards for me at the moment because I need to save for my big move to NYC in June. Especially now with so many sales going on, it's very tempting to spend a little here and a little there but of course it all adds up eventually. 

Saving has never been my strong suit but this season I'm trying to be good! Anyone have any savings tips they'd like to share? I'm all ears!

  14. you look beautiful as always! <3

    I can totally relate to what you said about saving. It's definitely not my strong suit either, haha. It's good that you're trying to control your spending to save up for your move though! I think the only tip I have is to track your money & make sure you stay in control of your budget :)

  16. Love the chambray bomber! Even I m crushing on denim, lately! With such good stuff around its difficult for me as well to stay within my budget. But it helps if you put the money u want to save in a different account and forget about it.

  38. Oh that is a fun retro jacket. Funny but I was doing some spring cleaning Sunday and came across a bomber/baseball cut jacket in an acid wash denim that I bought at H&M a few years ago but have never worn, I keep telling myself I will style it one day and wear it. Yup I still have it.
