Silk Bomber Jacket + Pencil Skirt

Bomber jackets are the epitome of cool girl streetwear. I have amassed a nice collection of bomber jackets and I simply can’t get enough. I have them in different shades, materials and for every occasion. I have been very luck to have found THE coolest bomber jacket on the planet, THE Chanel (?) gold chain bomber jacket that Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Teyana Taylor have been spotted wearing; I’ll feature it on the blog later on in the spring season.

Outfit Details

Today though, let’s talk about this cool silk champagne bomber jacket. Of course, this is another thrift store find and guess what? This whole look (with the exception of the shoes) came straight from Goodwill. I’ve been wearing a lot of monochromatic outfits lately but I love the mix between green and beige/champagne so when I put this look together, I knew I wanted a jacket that stood out. I love how this buttery champagne jacket contrasted my dark green outfit. This is one of my transitional outfits from one season to the next. The pencil skirt is wool and the top although sheer, also has a nice wool-like feel to it that makes it perfect for the early signs of spring. Instead of wearing open toe shoes, I opted for booties to keep the toes warm and I accessorized with a faux-ostrich clutch to match the booties.

Faux-Fur Leopard Vest

The last two weeks were a little rough but I am glad to finally be back blogging. I want to start featuring other things on the blog besides my outfit posts and I will slowly try to introduce that into the blog. It’s pretty tough to try to get things done when you have a full-time job but I am going to try to get better at my time management skills.

Outfit Details

 I had originally planned on only wearing this waffle turtleneck and leggings but I felt like this outfit needed one more thing to make it pop.I decided to throw on this faux-fur leopard vest and my Valentino-esque shoes. I purchased this faux-fur vest at Goodwill  for a measly $2.50 and while it doesn’t have a brand tag on it, I can tell you it’s a pretty good quality piece. The shoes are actually some of my favorite pair of shoes ( I have these in three colors) they are definitely not the Valentino Rockstud they’re BCBGs interpretation of the Valentinos. While they might not be the real thing, they are comfortable and are probably one of the best replicas I’ve seen out there.

Vest: NO Brand, purchased at Goodwill, $2.50 // Sweater: Banana Republic, purchased at Goodwill: $4.00 /  Purse: Vintage No Brand, purchased at thrift store:$5.00
