Experimenting with firsts is always refreshing, and I have been thinking of going out of my comfort zone of jackets with longer lengths and trench coats for a while. In wanting to take the plunge for a jacket of a shorter length, what better than a bomber jacket? I feel like I never found one I loved because it is too bulky on the top and way too short to match my style. I came across this bomber jacket and liked how it is slightly longer in length than standard bomber jackets. Also, it’s not super bulky which is a major plus. (This jacket is unisex).
I purchased this bomber jacket a few months ago and it is one of my favorite jackets for fall. This olive color is everywhere this season. The patches are sewn in and are so unique and add character to this jacket. I love that it even has zips on each hip to zip open if desired. This jacket is made of lightweight nylon and polyester and it hardly wrinkles. There are also quilted patches of the same material and color on the elbows and right shoulder. This would probably be necessary if you were carrying heavy items on your shoulder as it is a bomber jacket but I would like to say it is extra reinforcement for my handbags!
Aren’t there particular items of clothing that you receive compliments on every single time you wear them? Well, this bomber jacket is definitely one of those for me. This is how I knew this jacket needed to be highlighted in my next post. As winter is approaching, I see myself grabbing this jacket more often as I know when it gets colder I will have to store it away till next year. Dare I say this bomber jacket is too damn cool even for myself? Perhaps. Ha.
Outfit of the Day (OOTD) Details:
Jacket: Profound Aesthetic
Fingerless leather gloves: Profound Aesthetic
Oxford shoes: Cole Haan. This cognac color is perfect for fall. (these are my favorite that I have had for years and they are so scuffed and it doesn’t bother me in the least. Cole Haan has great oxfords and they are super comfy. I just purchased my second pair of oxfords from them)
Hijab: Printed georgette scarf. I kept it georgette to match the casual look
Lips: LimeCrime in Salem
Even though it may not seem like it from the pics, I had tons of fun during this shoot with my absolute favorite photographer ever- Saman H who also happens to be my sister. Lucky me!
