The Quintessential Bomber Jacket: Part I
December 15, 2014 | Location: Roswell, Georgia
I typically shop with the purpose of finding that perfect item for a particular occasion. I'm always running to the mall the week before a big event and making all of the usual stops at my favorite stores. I found the ultimate bomber jacket while shopping for an outfit to wear to the Auburn/Georgia football game—a game my friends and I never miss the opportunity to attend. It was going to be windy and cold that weekend so I was in search of warm layers that could be easily added onto or stripped away throughout the day.
I had already made a purchase at Madewell and was leaving the store when this bomber jacket caught my eye in the window display. After trying it on, I knew I had found the centerpiece of my game-day outfit. It wasn't until later that I realized that this jacket would become a mainstay in my closet. I found myself wanting to wear it much sooner than the occasion I bought it for. I decided to pair it with some distressed jeans and a comfy t-shirt for a casual, yet stylish look—ideal for weekends out and about.
