current obsession: the bomber jacket

here, there, everywhere - bomber jackets are making an appearance!
whether you're browsing pinterest, or looking through the racks of your
favorite department store, bomber jackets are a fan favorite. 
while i appreciated this particular style of jacket last season, 
i have to admit, i didn't purchase a bomber jacket until earlier this year, 
when an army green style arrived in my monthly stitch fix
(in case you missed it, i recently styled the jacket on my blog here).
whether it's paired with a light sweater, wrap dress, or a simple tee,
let your bomber make a statement. i like the versatility of my 
chic, green coat, but the embroidered floral print makes this jacket 
(and the rest of my outfit) pop; remember, it's all about the details!
i picked up these distressed, patched jeans at the zara
end-of-season clearance earlier this year, and while i typically
prefer darker denim, i love this light wash for spring. the boyfriend
style will be perfect with sandals (if the weather ever warms up -
i'm beginning to lose faith!).

in true seattle fashion, it absolutely poured rain when trying
to take these photos. thankfully, the very patient and talented karya 
suggested we pop over to the sky-bridge between nordstrom and pacific
place. it was a much appreciated reprieve from the rain and cold temperatures.

jacket: zara (thrifted via seattle goodwill), t-shirt: j.crew,
jeans: zara (similar here), purse & sunnies: forever 21, 
shoes: nine west
and believe it or not, i thrifted this bomber at my local goodwill
for $15! if you're eager to try a new trend, but don't want to 
burden your wallet, be sure to check a nearby thrift store.
you can likely find a jacket (and other items, too) from last season,
at a fraction of the cost! i've linked a few additional jackets i'm
lusting after below:

who else is ready for the weekend?
this week has felt especially long. my birthday is on sunday,
so i'll be over here eating far too many donuts, cookies, and 
cupcakes galore. after all, you're allowed to eat all your favorite
treats on your birthday, right?! thankfully, these boyfriend jeans have a bit 
of extra room, as i'll certainly be needing it!
xoxo.
