Bomber Jacket Envy

As insignificant as it may seem, over the last couple of months I have found myself struck down by recurrent bouts of what I can only describe as 'bomber jacket envy'.

Whilst it seems the majority of the fashion conscious public have bagged themselves an enviable little number, I continue to struggle in my search for the bomber jacket that ticks all boxes. The beautiful high end offerings are out of my price bracket (think overdone embellishment and metallic stitching), the bargain equivalents are tacky and just when I think I am close to making a purchase... my size is not available.

I love the sports luxe look, living in my wedge trainers and embracing the retro jewellery that goes hand in hand. However until I close the bomber sized gap in my wardrobe, I will continue to be dissatisfied! Therefore over the last few days I made it my mission to scour the internet and put an end to my suffering. Whilst many of my favourites were predictably out of stock, I ended up making a purchase in the form of the Warehouse lace print number with a few other bits and bobs along the way. Mission accomplished!

Whistles £75-love this lightweight silk jacket with orchid print

Dorothy Perkins £35-bright florals for the summer

Warehouse £17-subtle lace print

Topshop £30-quilted metallic for the cooler days
