How To Style A Bomber Jacket


Happy Monday, and thanks SO much for stopping by! I know today is the day where I initially wanted to announce the gender of my baby but the dress did not arrive on time hence I wasn’t able to shoot my gender reveal. However, I will announce soon…






My husband and I are planning to announce the gender of our baby within the next couple of weeks…however, I’m planning to give a pregnancy update every Friday. I was surprised how well it actually resonated with you, and I’m still in awe of all of your love and support! Your sweet words truly mean the world to me. I love sharing this exciting journey with you, and I honestly cannot wait to rock some maternity fashion! I’m almost 4 months pregnant and I’m guessing it won’t take much longer until I have a sweet, little bump I can cradle. I know this sounds crazy but I’ve always loved being pregnant except for the nausea, though. It truly is a miracle to carry a little one inside of you…

But let’s get back to today’s actual topic: Bomber jackets. I must admit, I was quite surprised (and yet excited!) when all of a sudden bomber jackets appeared all over my social media feed. Whether worn super-oversized or fitted, these jackets work with anything! From jogger pants (like the pair I’m wearing!), shredded jeans or a slinky dress—they rock either way and they’re also really, really comfortable which is always a win.

What do you think? Sound off in the comments below, and as always, thanks so much for reading!

    Part of me hopes it’s a little girl so that Kingston can have a baby sister to protect but the other part hopes it’s a lil brother so that Kingston can teach him all that his has learned in these 5 years. You look fabulous in that bomber V!

    A beautiful and a luxurious bag from Chanel, it’s also a boy bag with chain around the edges. Stunning! Just stunning! Of course we are definitely talking about the Boy Chanel Python Flap Wallet.

    The Passant Wallet has long won our hearts and this time its normal version made us swoon all over it the second time around. Ah, Hermes never fails to pull our heartstrings thus making us giddy all the time.

    True, bomber jackets work with anything and always look good.

    Going by your update on your first trimester troubles, I’ll guess that it’s a girl simply because during my pregnancy I heard from several people that girls always give troublesome pregnancies. Funny enough, I ended up having a girl and all the nausea,pain,lack of sleep, swollen legs and hunger made sense.

    But still, I’ll wait on the big reveal…..and the bump too, I’m sure you’ll rock in maternity fashion.

    Much love, Linet.

    I’m loving this look, Vanessa! I can’t believe you’re nearly four months pregnant here, you look as chic (and flat-stomached) as always! I can’t wait to see your pregnancy style, I know it’s going to be flawless. I’m so excited for your gender reveal!

  41. September 28, 2016 / 12:37 AM
