The weather in the spring can fluctuate from forty degrees, up to the high seventies. This means we all need a fabulous, lightweight jacket for the cooler parts of spring! I always keep a denim jacket on hand for spring, but one jacket can get boring fast. I decided to jump on the bomber jacket bandwagon, and invest in one for the spring season. (sometimes they are referred to as a stadium jacket)
So. . .raise your hand if you remember bomber jackets in the 1980s! My hand is up! Did I just date myself? haha, oh well. I was in grade school in the 1980s, and I had a shiny, green, bomber jacket. Everyone had one back then, they were the “IT” jacket to own; much cooler than those cotton twill things (members only jackets-yikes!) the nerd boys used to wear!
My Mother always told me to never re-wear a trend from your childhood, but weren’t fashion rules meant to be broken? Of course! So, I sprung for this cute little bomber jacket in pale pink. If I am going to jump on a trend, why not in the color of the year?!
This bomber jacket is quite cozy; it is perfect for wearing over lightweight tops. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, we need to be able to peel off our layers. The fog will bring in fifty degree weather in the morning, then when it burns off, the temperatures can rise ten, or twenty degrees in one hour. So having a light top underneath a jacket is key. The bomber jacket trend for spring is perfect for our weather! Love that!
I also need to give a shout-out to these Mansur Gavriel mules also known as slides. Did you know Mansur Gavriel is making shoes now? Love them! These slides are super comfy; and perfect for the spring, and summer months. I bought them in classic black so that I can reach for them often. As you know, I am a Mansur Gavriel superfan; so these shoes not only gleam fabulous style, they are extremely well made! Of course price-wise, they are a great value. I don’t know how Mansur Gavriel makes such high quality handbags, and shoes, without the sky-high price tag to go with it! More reason to love Mansur Gavriel slides or mules, and their collection in general.
This outfit will be a go-to for the spring season. I mixed a 1970s inspired denim skirt, with a 1980s inspired bomber jacket, and mid-1990s inspired slides. Why not mix decades? It’s more fun to mix it up. Right?
