Lovers + Friends Burgundy Bomber Jacket With Velvet
It’s definitely no secret that I love velvet, especially in burgundy (hence the name of this title) so it’s always going to crop up now and again in my outfits. I know it’s more of an Autumnal fabric and colour, but I don’t see any seasonal approach to burgundy velvet at all as I wear it all year round. So for this outfit, I went with something extremely comfortable, casual and easy wearing for a day out in town.
I chose this Lovers + Friends The Nomad Bomber Jacket to pair with a black tank top, and my James Jeans Twiggy Skinny Jeans. For the accessories, I opted for my Chanel Small Boy Bag in Velvet Bordeaux and my old Yosi Samra Velvet Loafers. I actually bought these shoes about 5 years ago from The Outnet in a sale and I hadn’t worn them all that much, until now, and it turns out that I love them even more than I did at the time. I love the lightweight satin feel of this bomber jacket though and how the colour is so intense – it’s stunning.
With regards to the jeans though, the reason I have linked up the maternity pair is because that’s what I am wearing. I want to make it clear that I am NOT pregnant, before anyone congratulates me, but I have to sometimes wear them because of the swelling and inflammation in my stomach that happens. My normal jeans don’t button up and can be extremely uncomfortable, so the stretchy waistband is such a relief. I’m still working on finding out what’s wrong with my stomach and why it randomly does it (I’m waiting on food intolerance testing results now), but hopefully it’s better. So, happy Friday! I hope you’re all well. Please do let me know what you think of the outfit in the comments below.
