There's been talk on YLF lately about "wildcard" items - an item we buy that doesn't fit our normal style sensibilities or seems a little out of the norm for us. This floral bomber jacket is one of those items for me. Although florals are very much part of my style, a longer silky bomber jacket is a style that I would not normally choose. It has a lack of structure that I enjoy in a topper. But when you fall in love, what are you gonna do, right???

So today is the debut of my crazy floral silky longer bomber jacket - I have paired the jacket with a column of colour in a fairly fitted black tank and pencil skirt….aaaahhhhh….there's the structure I crave. I added my black Doc Marcie boots for a smidgen of edge and my green handbag for a punch of colour and a nod to spring (which seems to have finally arrived for real). I scrunched the sleeves of the bomber for a bit more added structure. Purple/clear specs and a swipe of bright pink lipstick (new for spring) complete the outfit. Happiness factor? Waaaaaaaaay up there!

What do you think? does this work? The jacket also looks fab with a white tee and faded BF jeans, over my EF dresses, white jeans…As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
