Welcome back my lovelies.  The bomber jacket is our post de jour and since it was a key piece on designer runways everywhere this fall, we’re not going out on a limb by saying these uber cool jackets are quite literally the bomb!

That’s why I pulled my leather jacket collection out of the closet over the weekend and this fall/winter staple will be making frequent appearances from now until next March!

You may still be feeling the warm, sunny affects of summer in your home town, but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock a leather bomber NOW.  Layer it over a maxi dress or short sleeved metallic top to ward off the cooler evening temps or frosty air conditioned restaurants.

Navigating the choppy fashion waters for the mature women can at times leave us looking for the Coast Guard. No need to send up a flare when it comes to this popular leather topper.

The leather bomber jacket gives us a powerful styling tool to add some serious hip with an extra dash of cool to our outfits.  It’s an ageless, confidence inducing, statement-making accessory that shouts to the world you’ve got it going on, girl!

Meet my new buddy Apollo; isn’t he a stunner? Don’t mind us, we’re talking fall fashion.

Here, I’ve paired my ultra soft Marc New York Leather Jacket with a pair of Split Hem Jeans and
Leopard Trim Oxford Shirt. The colors set the tone for my pre-fall outfit of the day.

A scrumptious bag from the fabulous house of Ted Baker London brought out the black tones in the leopard trim on the shirt.

A comfy pair of black suede booties peeked out from the slits in my jeans.

And finally, a pair of tortuous shell shades and gold-toned hoop earrings completed the look.This post contains Affiliate Links. That just means you pay the same price and we make a few pennies.

    I love the colour of the jacket Jonet. Creams browns and caramels are favourites of mine. It won’t be long now till we need our jackets in the UK xx

      Thanks so much, Laurie. This caramel jacket is a favorite of mine, so soft and fabulous. The weather in the south is changing unusually early this year with over night temps in the low 60’s. I can already see some leaves starting to change color ~ it fills my heart with joy! Xo Jonet
