With winter well and truly behind us, my mind is quickly moving on to thoughts of summer. Sun-soaked days offset by a cool sea-salty breeze, days which extend long into the evening, and an excuse to eat more than my fair share of sorbet on an almost-daily basis. But still, with all that and so much more to look forward to, I can’t help but linger on a few remnants of winter. Days of dressing almost exclusively in black, and florals which, for lack of a better word, seem almost gothic.

One of the things that was strikingly obvious at New Zealand Fashion Week, was that romantically dark florals and bomber jackets, are both going to be big in Winter 2014. I’m not usually one to jump on a trend, or better yet, a trend six months out, but considering how long bomber jackets (and florals!) have been around, this one was a bit of a no-brainer. Boohoo already seem to be ahead of the game, with their latest boutique collection comprising mostly of dark dreamy florals and dramatic shapes, an accessible route to next years trends without having to wait. For me? I’m just going to stick with this bomber jacket; for those summer days when all I really want to wear is black.

Get the look:

    I am still so in love with that skirt, it adds such edge to everything you wear it with. I actually love Boohoo too, the boutique collection especially, I think considering the super low price point they have some brilliant pieces, I have my eye on the tartan coat!

      Thank love! Yes, the boutique collection is fantastic. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality too, being that this is the first thing I own from Boohoo.

    Some bombers look ‘trendy’ (not in a good way) but yours isn’t like that (so no need to worry about that ‘trend’ band wagon). I love the uniqueness and richness of yours. The fabric and print look devine! Definitely a piece that will last many years. I’m hanging for some warmth in Melbourne to tuck into the sorbet too 🙂

      Yes! The sorbet. Omg. And would you believe that it’s rainy and miserable? So much for summer coming…
