Da Bomb Diggity

Yes currently it's really cold in NYC but given global warming (I tend to mention that in style posts a lot) I have learned to combine seasonless silhouettes together.  The bomber jacket is the right way to cover up in style whether it's 56 or 26 degrees.  I remember borrowing my older brother's bomber jacket in junior high school when I was in my super tomboy phase, add in gap overalls, timberlands, the infamous purple jansport book bag and I thought I was the bomb (cause I was!). Mid 90s in NYC the THING was to have a bomber jacket and it had to be from an Army/Navy store for additional street cred (legit ask any New Yorker who grew up mid-90s)

In 2017, I pair the bomber with a LBD (Little Black Dress) and red pumps, prefect for a night out.  Since it is cold right now...and I want to keep this realistic af haha. So if it was cold I would  pair this jacket with a turtleneck midi dress and sheer stockings.

The bomber jacket just adds a bit of a tomboyish touch to any look, given how hard it can be to look fashionable in the winter time (as it is important to keep warm) it's rad to see brands take the bomber jacket to the next level. Check out my winter pics below!

No matter your overall style, you can accentuate your aesthetic and prepare yourself for colder days with one of the bomber jacket options above. If you want to read more about the bomber jacket check out this HYPEBEAST article explaining the history, they totally nailed it! 

Stay chic and warm y'all!

Coffee Made Me Do It

I have had a DEEP love for coffee ever since I was 17-years-old.  It started summer of 2001 and the search for a part time job was on and I ended up getting a gig at Starbucks near Rockefeller Center. It was rad, blocks away from school, all the coffee I can drink, and a deep discount to match. 

Fast forward to 2017, nothing has changed...I still love coffee more than ever. So when my friend Candy launched her tee shirt line that had  a cute coffee pun, I had to support.

Thankfully, the Meatpacking District has coffee shops at every other corner.  While I still love my Starbucks, I do enjoy an intimate coffee shop as much as the next gal.  The sounds and smell of an old fashion espresso machine just feel like home.

I'm a tee shirt/sweatshirt fanatic there's never enough in my closet! If you are looking for some inspiration head over to 1214 By. Candy Washington.  There are now coffee mugs on the site!
