|Jacket: Anthropologie, Skirt: Chickwish, Sweatshirt, bag & shoes: Madewell.|
It's become a bit of a tradition, it seems, to get my picture taken under these trees, in this matching skirt, once every spring. Last year, I paired it with stripes, so this year, I mixed it up with my favourite sweatshirt and new bomber jacket instead (more on that in a minute). It's finally spring over here, and the blossoms are just exploding on trees all over town. Finally!
So, this bomber jacket! It figures that after Cynthia and I agreed that Anthro has jumped the shark, I would spot this jacket in there while looking for a mug for my friend, and fall in love. Go home without the jacket, google it, and realize the price wasn't actually that bad. That I could afford this thing. Then go to Norway on personal business, where I'd be met with a whole Bildungsroman's worth of trouble and strife, and promptly buy myself the jacket as soon as I got back to London. Because I deserved it, or something.
But anyway, it was totally an investment, because 1: Bomber jackets are the new hot item for spring, and 2: Blush pink is the new hot colour for spring. So BAM, that's like nailing two trends in the one item! I'm practically saving money here! (Sarcasm.) But more importantly, I really like this jacket. Wearing it puts a spring in my step, and it goes really well with the rest of the stuff in my closet. This won't be the last time you see this jacket - prepare to get sick of it!
