Photo bomb: faux-fur bomber jacket, floral blouse, slouchy pants, and platform booties

While bomber jackets have been having a sartorial “moment” for a while now, somehow I wasn’t able to find one that really felt right for me…until I came across this cutie at Forever 21, that is!!

My regular visitors certainly know by now that I’m a total sucker for pieces with texture; and this plush little coat with its contrasting faux-leather trim has that in spades!!  Plus – even if “basic brown” wasn’t all kinds of trendy right now – that delicious shade of chocolate is total catnip for a neutrals-loving fashionista like me!!  😉

But I am working hard at including a bit more colour in my outfit arsenal…so today I opted to layer my brand new jacket over this pretty maroon floral blouse; the subtle contrast adds a perfect touch of interest, don’t you think??

Have you tried out the bomber trend yet, dear readers??  And are you embracing the resurgence of brown…or hating it??  As always, I’m looking forward to your comments!!

    Love the jacket because I too LOVE texture,and I appreciate the right browns! I have not personally tried the bomber trend though. I have enough jackets for now, for someone who lives where the cool season is short. (It is supposed to hit a record 98 F here today. Ugh.)

    Super cute jacket, Monika. I haven't found my perfect bomber either. I bought one at a thrift store and added patched to it and it came out a horrible mess! lol. Love your boots too, Girl.

    Thanks so much for linking up with Fun Fashion Friday!
